  1. Who is Mike Willis? Don’t think I’ve heard his name all week, but he’s 4P in points.

    100 laps, controlled pit stops (whatever that means), lots of strateegery. When to take on tires? There are two cars going points racing, and the rest that don’t care and will be going for the win. If the two lead points cars should happen to fall out early, it could get very interesting. πŸ€”

    100 laps, anything that can go wrong probably will.

    Tires will be crucial. Restarts have been dicey, plenty of wheel spin. Plenty of cars getting loose and wiggly in the shorter races. This will be exciting.

    Sure wish I could have gotten away, airfares of only $80 roundtrip are fantastic.

  2. The drivers will have to be patient. Especially with this track surface. The cars were loose and losing grip on short runs. Long runs are going to be a challenge between self control and tire life. Who ever makes that balance will prevail.

    Good luck to all!!!!!

    But alas, perhaps Mother Nature will prevail… looks like showers tonight. The Richie Evans Memorial may be postponed until Saturday.

  3. To all of you that make these live updates happen, thank you very much.

    This capability provides simple and succinct info.

    Thanks!!! You are all winners! 🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁

  4. Mike Willis won the MRS drivers championship this year and a TriTrack race I think two years ago. I think I saw he got a third in one of the FL races this week. He’s got some skills.
    “Controlled pit stops”… Isn’t that come out in the order you went into the pits?
    The way the week has gone, will it come down to Nocella and Hirschman?

  5. Willis was the MRS 2019 champ, also ran Tri track and some other stuff. He is going to run the NWMT this year. Mike is an accomplished driver, very talented.

  6. Willis lives in New Hampshire. He was the 2010 and 2011 Modified champion at Claremont speedway. According to an article I just read he plans on returning to Claremont for 2020, as well as running the Tri track series and select MRS and tour type events, as well as competing on the NWMT. Sounds like he’s gonna be a busy man.

  7. Catalanos losing two motors. That will put a dent in the budget. Wonder if they were tour spec engines, and if they were new, or freshened up.

  8. Congrats to “Big Money” Matt Hirshman and the #60 team for winning the Richie Evans Memorial, as well as the World Series Of Asphalt Stock Car Racing Championship. Matt showed remarkable consistency all week long, as well as great sportsmanship. If he ever decides to run a full season on the NWMT he would definitely be a serious contender for the championship. Congrats again Matt, great job. Just my opinion.

  9. Thanks for the replies guys, but I kinda meant the ask about Willis as he has been under the radar, yet in good points position. Seriously, I don’t think I heard his name announced in the mix all week, yet there he is. Nice job.

    Thanks again to the folks at racedayct that make this happen.
