    Pretty cool 1st and 3 rd place drivers got their start at Silver City Quarter Midget Club in Meriden Ct,

  2. Liz Cherokee says:

    This is a poorly written article by NASCAR’s press team. No details about Ryan’s drive to the front are included. Where did he start? When did he take the lead? What was the winning margin? What was impressive about the pass for the lead? Just plain awful…

  3. What’s even more amazing is the 79was around at the finish,the hillbillies must be actually doing some maintenance on the car
