    Scary crash for Porter in the street stock tour. Heard he was unconscious for a while. Last I heard he was still in the hospital recovering.

  2. I heard Jake johnson got disqualified for Chris infraction. Anyone got information as to what specifically was wrong. William wall got win. Nice to see the local guys run up front against the act tour. Great weekend of racing. Good car counts. Just a fun weekend. Thanks thompson.

  3. That should say chassis infraction. Auto fill autocorrect sometimes works against me, not for me.

  4. Cg,
