CARS Crate Late Models in the spotlight this week at Raceway 7!

Other classes will run full programs of regular features!

Conneaut, OH (August 8, 2017): Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Models will be in the spotlight this Friday at Raceway 7 with the event originally scheduled for June 16th but delayed by rain to be run. The class will then run a complete second show. Former division champion Kyle Zimmerman, the Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Model winner on the most recent event, July 28, leads the standings by a razor-thin margin of only one point over Dave Airgood. Airgood is a two-time winner this season. Darrell Bossard is third, another ten points back with Wendall Pinckney and opening night winner Chad Wright completing the top five. Airgood and Wright have two wins each while Chris Withers has a single win. Neither Pinckney nor Bossard have won yet this season and only have four more nights to accomplish a win. With a night of double features and double points payouts and double purses paid, all drivers will be putting in double effort for the wins. This will be a doubly contested night of racing! Can any driver prevail in both features?

Currently, defending champion Joel Watson leads the points for the Bonnell Collision Service E-Mods and has two wins, the most recent coming July 28. His lead is currently 46-points over Gary Eicher, the feature winner July 14. Third is Troy Johnson, near the front almost every outing but not yet getting to the Winner’s Circle. Will this be Troy’s week? Ken Zimmer, a two-time winner this season, is fourth with Jeff Johnson, not yet a winner, filling out the top five. Will either of the Johnson’s be able to score their first win in this prestigious event? Former champion Percy McDonald was the opening night winner.

Brandon Blackshear, the winner opening night, leads the Bonnell’s Auto Group Economods over defending champion Steve Haefke by only ten points. Two-time winner Tyler Frankenberry is third with Eric Reinwald, also a two-time winner fourth. Geoff Conn, with several top five runs but no wins, is fifth.

In Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stock competition Jimmy Kennerknecht has two wins, the most recent being July 28th, and leads the standings by seven points over Jamie Duncan, winless this far this season. Chris McGuire, a one time winner this year, is third with Garrett Calvert and Don McGuire filling out the top five. Former class champion Shaun Fawcett won opening night. Tim Deutsch, Bobby Whitling, and Mike Miller also have feature wins this season.

The Sunnyside Farms Transit Mini Stocks point standings show June 2nd winner Joe Campbell the leader by 22-points over Bill Fuchs, who, in turn, has a big 62-point advantage over former champion Jason Easler. Jim Jones is another 30 markers back in fourth with Logan Keney another 24 back in fifth.
