Close race for 1st Place!

The race for 1st place continues this weekend 7/26 at Motiva Speedway.  The top six veteran racers are battling for the coveted champion position, with only 17 points separating 1st and 6th, the second half of the season promises to be action packed.  The 2013 champion, Jesse Baker, holds that 6th position, will he earn enough points to retain his title or will the current leader, Bill Mitchell, hang on to his lead? Only time will tell.  Our 2nd place veteran, Stephen Nix, is only 1 point out of 1st and our 3rd place veteran, Jason Grady, is only 4 points off the lead.  Let's not forget to mention that between our 4th and 6th place drivers, only 3 points separate them.  Don't take your eyes off the lead, will it change or will the current leaders retain their positions?   With half the season left, let's not forget our rookies, this season we have several rookies who have been moving up through the point standings.  Our first rookie, Matthew Cardenas, is currently sitting just outside the top 10 in 11th position just 75 points down, chasing him is Michael Fanelli, who is a just 83 points out of the lead.

The second half of our season promises to be a good one.  Don't miss our upcoming races!  Be sure to come out and support your favorite driver.  Will they become the 2014 Champion?  You can keep track of your favorite driver(s) just click results and/or points for the up to date standings.

Thank you for your continued support.
