The 2015 season is quickly flying by and there’s only five weekly races remaining. Although it’s been the year of Steve (Carlson), Brad Powell has not given up. Last weekend his car was fast and could have won both features, but cut a tire while leading the first race. He nursed the car to still get a good finish, but it could have been better. He aced the field in the second race and took home the first place trophy.
Any misfortune on the track for Steve Carlson could really tighten up the points race. Last Saturday the “King of Short Track Racing” got into trouble and spun with Cole Howland early in the second feature, but Carlson fought back and ran through the field to a 5th place finish.
The Dean’s Satellite Sportsmen had a first time feature winner last week – Brad Warthan, and it was the second week after Steve Bachman’s return, whom had another good finish. Points leader Nick Clements was second, and still has a firm grip on the point lead. Tony Leis is still within reach though.
A strong battle is emerging in Auto Value Thunderstox for the point championship. Charles Vian Jr. is looking for his first title of any kind at the track and holds a two point margin over Andy Moore. Both finished 1-2 last weekend in the feature.
Another battle that has a two point margin is the ANTS Complete Pest Control Hornets, with Nate Towner just ahead of Garrett Thicke. Another two back is Hunter Miller. All three are looking for their first title.
The action and battles continue this Saturday night and take the green flag at 7:30!
