Street Stocks to make up May 19 rained out feature!
Conneaut, OH (July 25, 2017): The Bonnell Auto Group Economods will be in the spotlight this week at Raceway 7 with their biggest race of the season, the “Two-Barrel Rumble”, paying $1000 to win. Brandon Blackshear, the winner on opening night, leads the standing over defending champion Steve Haefke by 29-points. Haefke won last Sunday, his second Raceway 7 win of the season. Tyler Frankenberry, the winner June 16, is third, another 21 back, then Eric Reinwald, with one win, and Geoff Conn, winless thus far, filling out the top five. Any of the top five drivers are capable of a win on any given Friday so the $1000 winner’s purse ought to make the battle for the checkers extra exciting.
All regular classes will be running as well with all points races stating to heat up as the season gets near the closing stages. Dave Airgood leads the Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Model championship standings by 28-points over former champion Kyle Zimmerman with Wendall Pinckney only another seven points back. Then it gets really tight as Darrell Bossard is only another two points back in fourth and defending champion Dennis Lunger fifth, sixteen points behind Bossard.
