MMRA PRO DIVISION - WITH ASA LATE MODELS AT CONCORD MOTORSPORTS PARK

Our special event with the ASA Late model series was a great opportunity to get a taste of big time racing.  We were in the heart of stock car racing country, on a hot Saturday night, at a track that has played host to more NASCAR greats than perhaps any other in the country.  Several drivers have moved from the ASA Late Model series to the upper levels of NASCAR and there were lots of sponsors in the area, and NASCAR scouts in the pits looking for the latest talent.  At the drivers meeting, series owner Ron Varney referenced the fact that Landon Cassill flew in to compete after finishing in the top 10 in the NASCAR Nationwide series the night before in Chicago.  It was clear, this was the place to be for drivers looking to make a name for themselves.

The track was amazing with a unique tri-oval design that had you racing wide open toward the wall, not once but twice per lap.  It was a true test of courage for our racers who proved up to the challenge as speeds quickly picked up in practice rounds.  To get a taste of the unique layout, check out the You Tube video below which is a two lap qualifying run which placed in the middle of the field at 18.809 seconds and 95 mph.

 

Polesitter Kevin Bush was faster still with a lap of 18.034 and 99.811 mph!

Everyone loved the track and its wide open character.  It also seemed to be a place where a good driver could catch a loose racecar as there were several "moments" in our races, but both feature events went caution free and all cars rolled back into their trailers in good shape.

Congratulations to winners Kevin Bush and Joey Greening - you did a great job and we hope that your performance helps you get noticed by some folks that can help you in your careers!
