Just 5 Weeks remain in the 2011 Weekly Season
If you haven’t seen any of the 2011 racing action of the Late Models, Sportsmen and Thunderstox, you’ve been missing out. Another exciting race night took place last weekend.
In the Late Model division, as drivers in the top five were amidst aheated battle Steve Carlson got right up on the bumper of Matthew Henderson going into turn three. That is when Brent Kirchner dove under Carlson, making contact, sending Carlson into a spin. Carlson was able to continue, but second in points Todd Korish spun to avoid contact and along came Cole Howland’s car landing on top of Korish’s. Howland was coming off his best career Late Model finish of 2nd the week prior. Korish eventually made it back to the track but had damage and lost ground on point leader Herbst.
The Sportsmen drivers had a wild night with lots of agressive driving and some three wide racing. Four cautions were the result of several spins and an accident by Troy Maier and Bill Martin. At the end, it was Jimmy Gilster winning the 4th annual Darus Pettibone Memorial race, with a bonus of $1000 for the feature winner of the extended 20 lap race.
The 2011 season is getting down to the wire, so be sure not to miss out on a single lap of action and excitement!
