Road to Indy TV, the broadcast production arm of the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires, will return for Season 7 in 2020 with an expanded programming platform to provide increased coverage for race fans, competitors and series partners. The three-pronged video content plan will feature increased live, edited and social media segments covering the three renowned driver development series – Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship – to audiences around the world.

Road to Indy TV is the brainchild of JP Manterola, Founder, CEO and Creative Director of Pro Racing Group – an international award winning, full-service sports marketing agency headquartered in Lithia, Fla. just outside Tampa. Since 2014, Manterola and his team, including Senior Creative Designer Travis Earnest and Project Manager and Producer Kyran Guild, have strived to bring unprecedented coverage of the Road to Indy across all platforms.

In 2016, the Road to Indy became the first American racing series with a dedicated broadcast channel on demand and also the first open-wheel series to have an official App on Xbox One. In 2020, all shows will now be available on demand as well as live on Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Roku. The shows will also be live streamed on the free Road to Indy TV App (which launched in 2015), on RoadToIndy.TV and its social media platforms and on the respective series websites – indylights.com, indypro2000.com and usf2000.com – and social media outlets.

Road to Indy TV will now be producing full live race shows with over three hours of streaming content daily on race weekends which includes a dedicated pre-race show, and race and post-race coverage of each series highlighted by special segments Paddock Pass, RTI Insider and The False Grid.

For the first time, embed codes for all shows will be available to series drivers, teams, partners and interested media for live streaming use on their own outlets.

“Live content is so important in this day and age,” said Manterola. “In 2020, live streaming is expected to account for 82% of all internet traffic. Our goal with our new expanded live programming is to meet what the numbers tell us in terms of consumption by consumers with quality live programming and behind-the-scenes access. The Road to Indy is a great product with tremendous racing and a host of stories off the track. We are excited about the creative process we have lined up and look forward to engaging more fans this season.”

The social media component of the video content plan will include regular one-minute features with individual Indy Lights, Indy Pro 2000 and USF2000 race weekend highlights as well as Beyond the Grid, Road to Indy 101, Tech Talk, Story of the Moment and Weekend Recap segments. Fuller two to five-minute edited segments will be produced the week following a race event and will include Beyond the Grid, Road to Indy 101, Tech Talk, Story of the Moment and Race Recap.

All creative content will be supported by social media marketing, providing better brand recognition among a wider audience and more exposure for series competitors. In addition, in-show branding and advertising opportunities will be offered for the first time.

“JP and his team are tremendously passionate in their efforts to expose the Road to Indy to as large an audience as possible,” said Dan Andersen, Owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions. “Each year they strive to take their creativity and technical capabilities to new heights, and 2020 will begin a new era of live content for our teams, drivers and partners thanks to their efforts.”

Another star-studded field featuring world-class sports cars and drivers are set to take on the grueling, twice-around-the-clock classic challenge that is the Rolex 24 At Daytona at the end of next week on the iconic 3.56-mile, Daytona International Speedway road course.
 
The field includes race cars from 12 different manufacturers and includes 42 drivers with at least one previous Rolex 24 victory. It also includes a two-time and reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion, the 2019 Indianapolis 500 winner among six Indy 500 winners and five IndyCar champions in the field, 26 24 Hours of Le Mans winners and 30 IMSA premier series champions.
 
There is a total of 39 entries spread between four classes of competition: Daytona Prototype international (DPi) with eight, LMP2 with six, GT Le Mans (GTLM) with seven and GT Daytona (GTD) with 18. Nearly every entry will compete in the full 2020 WeatherTech Championship season. The race also will include drivers from 22 different countries and five continents.
 
On-track activity for the 58th Rolex 24 At Daytona begins Thursday, Jan. 23 with practice and qualifying. NBC will have live network coverage of the start of the race beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 25, and also will televise the race finish beginning at 12 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 26 as part of NBC Sports’ complete coverage of the event that includes windows on NBCSN and the NBC Sports App and TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold.

 The allure of the Rolex 24 At Daytona has Giacomo Mattioli eager to return each year and 2020 is no exception.
 
The Scuderia Corsa team owner thinks this may be the team’s best shot yet of landing the No. 63 WeatherTech Ferrari 488 GT3 in victory lane at the prestigious Rolex 24 At Daytona, which opens the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.
 
The team retains its 2019 GT Daytona (GTD) IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup lineup of full-timers Cooper MacNeil and Toni Vilander, alongside Jeff Westphal. However, next week’s twice-around-the-clock event marks the return of Alessandro Balzan to the driver’s seat. The Italian was sidelined for a year for medical reasons but remained as part of the team throughout last season in a non-racing capacity.
 
“I think it’s exciting, I think it’s emotional,” said Mattioli of Balzan’s return. “He’s pumped up. He’s in the best shape of his life. He’s motivated and it’s exciting to welcome him back in the driver’s seat. He brings a lot of experience and speed to the lineup, which is probably the best lineup we’ve ever had for Daytona, so we’re excited.”
 
Scuderia Corsa’s résumé is undoubtedly impressive – two WeatherTech Championship GTD titles; the 2016 GTE-Am victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans; and wins at three of the four IMSA endurance races: the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, and the Motul Petit Le Mans.
 
But it’s the Rolex 24 At Daytona that eludes the team. Should they finally triumph, the victory would rank “right at the top” for Mattioli.
 
“Right on top, absolutely,” Mattioli said. “I think this is the major accomplishment and major title that we’re missing. It would sit right with the win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016. Daytona is such a special place. It’s my favorite 24-hour.
 
“You feel connected to the car for the entire 24 hours as opposed to Le Mans where you are in the garage and the laps are long. It feels a little more disconnected with the car. Daytona, you see the car every minute or second, coming down the banking, etc. It’s intense and a great event that we look forward to every year.”
 
The 2020 Rolex 24 weekend will be doubly busy for Scuderia Corsa, as the Ferrari Challenge North America series will hold a doubleheader to open its season at the World Center of Racing. A handful of Ferrari dealerships that partner with Scuderia Corsa have entered cars for next weekend’s races and will lean on the experience of the WeatherTech Championship program.
 
“It speaks volumes that the team can perform multiple programs on the same weekend,” said Mattioli. “We’ve done it in the past and at one point, we ran three cars in the 24 Hours. The challenges are with the different paddocks and the races on Friday.
 
“But Daytona is a beautiful venue and a fantastic experience for our drivers because they get to mix and match with the IMSA pro drivers and experience the 24 Hours. It’s always much appreciated by the Challenge drivers. I think Daytona adds a lot to the Ferrari Challenge program.”
 
It’s also a firsthand glance at Ferrari’s ladder system and Mattioli’s involvement at both ends of the spectrum. Mattioli sees a bigger picture by welcoming people into the racing environment and coaching them through the ranks. 
 
“It offers the Challenge driver the ultimate step into the motorsport arena that we can take them to the endurance GT championship,” he said. “This has been possible with the support of Ferrari and the support system that we have. I think it’s valuable, and we’ve seen people develop through the ranks and the ladder system. I think it benefits the entire motorsport.”
 
NBC carries live network coverage of the Rolex 24 At Daytona beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 25 and also will televise the race finish beginning at 12 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26. This is all part of the NBC Sports’ complete coverage of the event that includes windows on NBCSN and the NBC Sports App and TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold.
 
IMSA Radio will have live coverage throughout the weekend on RadioLeMans.com and SiriusXM Radio.
Meanwhile, the first Ferrari Challenge race of the weekend goes green on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9:05 p.m. Race 2 will take place Friday at 6:45 p.m. Streaming of both races is available at races.ferrari.com.
 
Tickets for the Rolex 24 At Daytona event weekend are available at DaytonaInternationalSpeedway.com.
 
Professional off-road racer and radio host Jim Beaver started his 2020 race campaign on a high note on Saturday, finishing the Parker 250 presented by Polaris RZR as the Best in the Desert season kicked off in his hometown of Parker, Arizona. Beaver fought his way to a 21st place finish in UTV Turbo when all was said and done, passing a number of other cars after an early mechanical issue forced him to run most of the event from back in the pack.
 
“I’m happy to put up a decent result in our hometown race and season opener in Parker,” said Beaver. “We had a couple of little things happen along the way that forced us to play some catch-up, but the car ran well, we got into a rhythm, and made up positions throughout the day as we clicked off miles. I’m happy to get a good finish to start the year, and ready to head on to King of the Hammers!”
 
Beaver drove the first and third laps of the three-lap race, while his brother Trent strapped into the car for the second lap. A belt issue 13 miles into the race allowed more than 20 other cars to get past, but the #915 General Tire/Vision Wheel Polaris RZR ran smoothly for most of the event. As a rough course knocked a number of competitors out during the day, Beaver and his team managed the car well enough to get to the finish on the lead lap—a feat that only half of this year’s starters were able to accomplish.

Professional off-road racer and Red Bull athlete Mia Chapman made it to the finish line in the first race of her desert off-road career last Saturday in the Parker 250 presented by Polaris RZR. Chapman, who made her debut in the #1837 Polaris RZR in the UTV Production class, finished 20th with a time of 6:14:57.839, completing the race on the lead lap despite facing a rough and unforgiving course in her debut.
 
“I learned a lot in my first desert race, and I’m stoked to finish!” said Chapman. “It’s difficult to try and finish your first time out, but we managed to get it to the line and work through any issues we had. We didn’t have a flat all day, our Yokohama tires held up amazingly even as the course got rougher and rougher as the day went on. I can’t wait to get back in the car for my next race of the season at the Mint 400!”Three laps on the rocky course in Parker weren’t without their challenges; Chapman’s rear axle failed on the final lap of the race, forcing her to finish the race without all-wheel drive. Undeterred, the desert rookie focused on running at her own pace throughout the day as she began her transition from a highly successful short course racing career. The Florence, Arizona native adapted to very different conditions, with less consistent wheel-to-wheel racing and much more time in the driver’s seat.
 
Chapman’s next race will be the Mint 400 in March, as she makes her debut in the Great American Off-Road Race. Last year’s event drew over 540 entries, meaning Chapman will likely face some of her toughest competition of the season in 2020 in the legendary Nevada-based event.
 
Mia Chapman is supported by Red Bull, R-N-R Steel, Yokohama, Kicker Performance Audio, Walker Evans Racing, Vision Wheel, Rigid Industries, Jim Beaver’s Down & Dirty Show Powered By Polaris RZR, Action Sports Canopies, Muzzys, Sparco, DynoJet, AiM Sports, Xtreme Racing Fabrication, and Rugged Radios.

Three days of Dirt Late Model racing in the Sunshine State came to an exciting finish on Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park when Kyle Bronson completed the weekend sweep of the DIRTcar Pro Late Model class after a thrilling battle with Michael Page to capture the $10,000 Sunshine Nationals finale check.

Completing Saturday night’s action were two other action-packed Features in which Colton Leyendecker traded in back-to-back third-place finishes for a win in the 602 Late Model division while Dusty Sparkman got his first career win at Volusia in the Florida Late Model Feature.

 

DIRTcar PRO LATE MODELS – KYLE BRONSON

A member of the invading “Super Late Model regulars” club this weekend, Brandon, FL’s Kyle Bronson was a big favorite to win it all right from the get-go. And he did just that.

The 29-year-old wheelman known as Killer never lost his focus throughout the entire event. Not once. He was fastest overall on practice night, set fast time in Qualifying on Friday night, won all but one of his Heat races and was victorious in all three Features. Utter domination.

One notable regarding his wins – each one was increasingly more challenging than the last. That notion really came to the forefront in Saturday night’s drive to Victory Lane, when he was forced to drive through fellow Super Late Model guru Michael Page to earn it. And make no mistake, Page really, really made Bronson work for it.

Right at the drop of the green, Page made a beeline for the lead as he proceeded to grab it and lead the field around to complete the first lap. Starting right behind Page, Bronson followed him and broke away from the pack a few laps later to start their high-speed battle for the top spot.

Bronson threw the first of many traded slide-jobs between the two on lap 10, clipping Page’s nose as he drove on by. On a restart just three laps later, Page returned the favor by getting into Bronson’s left-rear on a failed pass attempt in Turn 1.

“I slid [Page] and he kinda got in the back of me, but it was just hard racing,” Bronson said. “He hit me in the left-rear, just trying hard, and when he did it bent my left-rear wheel.”

“We’re both as hard of a racer as the other,” Page said. “I just felt that, on a racetrack that was wide, [Bronson] just kinda came in there and thought he had me cleared but he didn’t. It knocked the steering wheel out of my hands.”

The next restart restacked the field and refocused Page, as he threw a slide-job of his own, which Bronson countered by crossing-over as they raced out of Turn 2. The second of two red flags was displayed as they entered turn three, and there the leaders sat, parked right next to each other amidst the stoppage, discussing their intentions.

“It just rubbed me the wrong way because the last time we raced, [Bronson] did the same so I returned the favor, maybe a little worse, but we stopped down there and I told him,” Page said. “We talked for a minute and I said, ‘let’s race.’ And after that, we raced. I don’t know if you could have raced anybody harder after that.”

“We were just telling each other how much we loved each other and were ready to drink a beer after the races,” Bronson joked.

Sitting inside of his Baird Truck and Trailer Sales #18X, Page was dreading the time spent not moving, as the gamble he took on tire selection for the 30-lap Feature did not appear to be working to his advantage.

“The red flags killed it. I went on hard tires so they kinda sealed-up on me. Every time the car would come back in, the yellow would come out,” Page said.

Meanwhile, an unfortunate situation was developing right underneath Bronson’s #40B as they sat parked on the track, waiting for cleanup to conclude. The contact Bronson’s left-rear tire received from Page’s nose on the earlier restart resulted in a slow leak, and Bronson could hear the clock ticking as they awaited the next restart.

“My tire was going flat since lap 14, and then we had the red flag after that,” Bronson said. “I was praying we went back green [quick] because I could hear my tire leaking. Then it finally blew out coming to the checkered.”

“It didn’t officially blow all the way out until the last lap there, we were racing on probably a pound or two of air,” Bronson added.

In the end, the tire held up… at least, as long as it needed to for Bronson to see the checkers. He battled with the Georgian for several more laps after the red, again trading slide-jobs for the lead before lap 20. Another restart with 13 laps remaining threw Brandon Williams into the mix, who Bronson was also able to put behind him as he drove to his third checkered flag in three nights.

All-in-all, the Bronson v. Page battle was settled 100 percent on the racetrack. They may have beaten and banged their cars up quite a bit before all was said and done, but the greatest sight of all may have been in Victory Lane, where the two smiled and shook hands in front of the crowded Volusia bleachers and DIRTVision cameras.

“He knows how I felt and I know how he felt,” Page said. “Instead of going around and talking to everybody else about it, we worked it out like you’re supposed to as a racer.”

Williams brought out the final caution flag of the race with four laps remaining and dropped out due to an ill-timed mechanical failure, crumpling his best run of the weekend. Arthur Walked capped off his solid weekend with his first podium finish, and Jason Fitzgerald rebounded from being a part of the second red flag incident to come back and finish fifth.

Randy Weaver was strong all weekend but couldn’t find his mojo when it mattered most; settling for seventh after starting outside pole in the finale. Ashton Winger joined the Pro Late Model field for a chance at the 10-grand on Saturday, and had a decent run going early, but was on the receiving end of a nasty barrel-rolling flip in Turn 2 that ended his night. He, and every other driver involved, walked away under his own power.

After finishing third twice in the first two races over the weekend, Leyendecker finally pulled it off and picked up the win in the final 602 Late Model Feature of the inaugural Sunshine Nationals.

Driving past Raymond Folwell on lap five, Leyendecker grabbed the lead and never looked back, holding off Thursday night’s winner, Cody Overton, for the $1,500 check. For his consistent efforts throughout the weekend, Leyendecker was also crowned the Sunshine Nationals miniseries champion of his division.

Feature (20 Laps) 1. 33-Colton Leyendecker [1]; 2. 97-Cody Overton [21]; 3. 58-Tyler Clem [4]; 4. 5-Dustin Carter [3]; 5. 5B-Colby Boyett [8]; 6. 25-Wiley McDaniel [22]; 7. 32-Bud Chancey [2]; 8.

FLORIDA LATE MODELS – DUSTY SPARKMAN

It was almost a three-peat in two different classes over the weekend, but Sparkman put a stop to that by winning the final Florida Late Model Feature in dominating fashion, leading the final 14 laps to earn his first-ever victory in a Late Model of any kind.

Thursday and Friday night’s winner, David Showers Jr., finished sixth and was crowned the miniseries champion of the division by way of his three top-10 results.

"I'm sorry NASCAR, I'm sorry Daytona, but this is the biggest effing race I've ever won. I hope to win Daytona in a few weeks, but this is badass!"
That said it all as Kyle Larson found redemption from a last-lap loss one year ago as the Elk Grove, California native finally captured the Golden Driller in the 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire.
Larson, in his 13th Chili Bowl attempt, and ninth A-Feature appearance, trailed the opening 38 laps as Christopher Bell took the lead from the pole.
Chasing into traffic early, the Lucas Oil No. 01 would close to just under a second before being gapped by over two seconds as the pair sliced through the back of the field.
Caution on Lap 34, the restart saw Larson keeping pace with Bell. Throwing the slide job into the first turn, Kyle wasn't quick enough as Bell raced by on the cushion. Slowed again three laps later, Larson again kept pace with the pair battling back and forth for the lead.
With momentum to his advantage, Larson dove the bottom of the first and second turn on Lap 39. Sliding across the nose of the Tucker-Boat No. 84x, Bell tried to turn under Kyle, but the drag race into the third turn saw Larson slam the door on Bell to take the race lead.
Holding off the charge through two more cautions, the final laps saw Bell close in, but would not have enough time as Larson crossed 0.801 seconds ahead of the 2019 race winner. Making his first championship feature event, Monday prelim winner Cannon McIntosh put the Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 71k on the podium in his first full weekend with the team.
Working the hub of the Tulsa Expo Raceway, Logan Seavey wheeled the Kevin Swindell Motorsports No. 39 forward seventh positions to fourth with Rick Abreu completing the top five. Jonathan Beason crossed sixth with 2020 Chili Bowl Rookie of the Year, Michael "Buddy" Kofoid finishing seventh. Having to charge from the back of the field twice, Blake Hahn fought to eighth to become the night's Hard Charger. Ryan Bernal and Tucker Klaasmeyer completed the top five.
Saturday's races began with double O-Features. Several drivers made impressive runs through the Alphabet with Chris Cochran advancing six times from the N-Feature to the I-Feature. Cale Conley, Casey Shuman, Brayton Lynch, and Alex Sewell all advanced through five events. Overall, it was the Boost Oxygen No. 11 who advance the most positions with a net gain of 43.
The 2020 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire saw an overall field of 343 drivers from 40 states and six countries. The Worldwide Technologies Raceway Flip Count ended at 77, setting a new record for the Chili Bowl Nationals. All drivers were unharmed.
The 35th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire will take place January 11-16, 2021. Information about tickets will be posted as the information is finalized.

Chili Bowl PR

Kyle Larson passed three-time defending champion Christopher Bell on lap 39 and went on lead the final 17 laps to win Saturday night’s 34th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals at the Tulsa Expo Center.

It marked the sixth consecutive Chili Bowl Nationals title for Toyota, which also swept the podium as Bell finished second and 17-year-old Cannon McIntosh placed third.

Starting from the outside of the front row, it was Bell who went straight to the lead and began to pull away early. Behind him, Tanner Thorson was second, followed by Larson, Rico Abreu, Jonathan Beason and McIntosh. 

By lap 16, Larson had moved into second and shortly after, Bell started to get into lap traffic before a series of yellow flags would bunch the field.  As the race passed the midway point, Larson worked to stay with Bell on the restarts and it would eventually pay off big for the California native.

Bell would lead the first 38 laps before Larson would take advantage of a restart, staying close through turn two and then throwing a slider into turn three to take the lead. Once out in front, Larson was comfortably in control the rest of the way, with Bell holding down second.

Behind them, McIntosh had climbed from the eighth starting position up to fourth and eventually overtook Keith Kunz Motorsports (KKM) teammate Rico Abreu for the third spot. 

At the checkered flag, it was Larson leading Bell by .801 seconds, with McIntosh third and Abreu would end up fifth to give Toyota four of the top-five finishers on the night.

Also earning top-10 finishes on the night were KKM’s Buddy Kofoid, who placed seventh, Blake Hahn, in eighth and Tucker Klaasmeyer in the tenth position. For his efforts, the 18-year-old Kofoid would earn Rookie of the Year honors as the only first-year Chili Bowl driver to advance to Saturday’s A Main.

Overall, Toyota had a program record 13 drivers qualify for the 24-car A Main feature on Saturday.  Thomas Meseraull, who narrowly made it back for Saturday’s feature after a family emergency called him back to Indiana, would finish 12th after getting caught up in another car’s flip while challenging for a top-five spot.  Chris Windom finished 14th, Jason McDougal was 15th, Zach Daum placed 16th, Michael Pickens was 20th and Aaron Reutzel rounded out the Toyota contingent in 23rd.

This year’s Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals featured more than 350 entries.

Night #2 of the inaugural DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals was a very telling tale of who the Saturday night finale contenders will be, with two repeat winners, almost a third, on Friday night at Volusia Speedway Park.

 

Kyle Bronson was one of two drivers to double-up on Friday night, making a big move for the lead underneath Jadon Frame on a restart to get the edge, which he carried all the way back to the checkered flag for his second consecutive DIRTcar Pro Late Model win at Volusia. Likewise, David Showers Jr. went back-to-back in the Florida Late Model division, just one night after scoring his very first win in a Late Model, and Bud Chancey took advantage of an engine malfunction out front to claim his first 602 Late Model win at The World’s Fastest Half Mile.

 

DIRTcar PRO LATE MODELS – KYLE BRONSON

 

It was a case of déjà vu on the podium of the Pro Late Model Feature on Friday night, as Bronson led the final 20 laps and beat out fellow Super Late Model stars Randy Weaver and Max Blair. However, Bronson had to work for it a bit, compared to Thursday night.

 

Killer jetted out to the runner-up spot within two laps of the race, giving chase to leader Jadon Frame. A restart on lap five put Bronson’s #40B on Frame’s rear bumper as they dove into turn one, Bronson with a big run to Frame’s inside. The two made contact that ended with Frame in the wall and Bronson racing off, unharmed.

 

“I kept getting under the guy, and he kept turning left on me, but I really didn’t have position to finish him off with the way these Crate motors run around here,” Bronson said. “When I finally got position on him, I felt like I was about a half-car ahead of him. I went to do a slide-job on him and, I don’t really know if he just stayed in the gas or hit a slick spot and hit the fence or whatever happened.”

 

Frame left the track on the hook as Bronson stayed out and led the rest of the way to collect $2,000 for the win. Bronson admitted he and Frame touched as they battled for the lead out of Turn 2, but also said what followed was just the product of the drive to win.

 

“I hate what happened, but in my shoes, if I had to do anything over again, I wouldn’t change nothing I did. I wish the outcome would have been a little bit different, but that’s the way it goes. We come to win these races; I’m driving my butt off to win these races. [My team] are giving me a damn good car, so I’ve just got to do my job,” Bronson said.

 

“There definitely was contact, 100 percent. It wasn’t anything crazy, just a deal that I feel like on these Crate cars, when someone gets their quarter-panel to your left-front, it’s time to check. Or, stay out there and wreck yourself – kinda what [Frame] did,” Bronson added.

Randy Weaver had another solid drive to a runner-up finish, this time from much further back, starting 9th and dropping back to 12th on the first lap. He made patient moves through the field and used the well-timed yellows to catch the leaders within 15 laps to score his second podium finish of the weekend.

 

Max Blair held his car inside the top-five for most of the race, dropping back to seventh after the lap five restart, but was able to rebound for another third-place finish. For a short time, the Titusville, PA-native held the runner-up spot before Weaver tracked him down and passed him with what could have been the fastest car on the track, next to Bronson.

 

Douglasville, GA’s Super Late Model guru Michael Page finally brought out his #18X on day two of competition and joined the field as one of the favorites on the roster. His first night on track, however, did not go as he had planned, as his race ended by stopping at the topside of turn two with a mechanical failure.

FLORIDA LATE MODELS – DAVID SHOWERS JR.

 

He may have had the win handed to him on Thursday night when leader Bubba Whitener wrecked while leading, but make no mistake, David Showers Jr. had to work for his second-ever win in a Late Model on Friday night.

 

Taking the lead on lap one, Showers nearly ran away with the show in the early going, but Whitener tracked him down and put the pressure on in the final laps to make it an exciting chase for the finish line. Leading all 25 laps, Showers collected $3,000 for his victorious efforts.

602 LATE MODELS – BUD CHANCEY

 

In what originally looked to be Cody Overton’s second consecutive win in the Sunshine Nationals 602 Late Model Feature, Thursday night’s runner-up Bud Chancey took advantage of a poorly timed engine failure on Overton’s part to scoop-up the win – his first victory at Volusia.

 

Overton started on the front row and jetted out to a commanding lead early on before going up in a puff of smoke on lap 12, handing over the lead, and the win, to Chancey. Chancey took no prisoners after getting the lead, out in front by a 5-second margin at the checkers.
