    Major congrats to Doug Meservey Jr for a terrific come from behind tenth place finish with a car that had old tires and Stafford gearing as well as getting punted into the infield causing him restart at the back of the field. Hard charger

    Awesome night at the speedbowl. Cool to see Nick Hovey debut his late model. Great battle between Christian and Palmer. Story of the night though had to be Ed Flemke Jr. His emotional words during pre race. Winning his heat race. Starting 15th and passing cars on the top and bottom. Made his way up to fifth and looked as though there was no stopping him. Unfortunately Owen got sideways right in front of him and he wrecked trying to avoid. It was just cool to see at his age he hadn’t lost his edge at all. The battle for the lead between the 6 and 35 got pretty physical. Not sure how many times the 6 slammed him. Can’t wait to watch aids view. Sparks flying but nobody wrecking. Thanks to Dick Williams and the racing guys, the Bouchard family and the Flemke’s for putting on a great show.

  12. I don’t mind saying it. A few years ago when Moeller was winning SK Light races at the Speedbowl it was creepy seeing a child reciting victory lane-isms like he had been programed. He’s not that child any more and the thoughts that are expressed on the podium where ever that may be those of a thoughtful young man.
    It hasn’t been an easy journey. Early success was followed by a lot of grinding in the SK’s and tour mods at Stafford with only the one win until this year. It was the Late Model’s strangely that showed him to be a driver to be reckoned with. The Speedbowl win big but adjusting so seamlessly to the Late Models with an ultra short learning curve has been impressive.

  13. The Atomic Punk says

    Aids view…. LOL

  14. What happen with the ride height rule, the 81, 47, and 6 didn’t make the ride height rule after their qualify heats and were lined up last in the feature. Two hours latter they were put in the redraw after complaining like 6/7 year old’s. A rule is a rule, Mark go’s out of his way to tech and he does a great job but got overtrumped by the race director and management , go figure.. just through out the rule book.

  15. From the 2021 Rule book, Rule 57) Ground Clearance Requirements:
    The frame rail and sheet metal ground clearances are a minimum of (2) inches. Immediately following Competition, just prior to inspection team members are not allowed to work on their cars without approval of an official.

  16. I don’t see anywhere in the rule where it states with or without the driver. Which is it?

  17. Where was the measurement taken? Was it a frame rail or sheet metal violation?

  18. The ride is 2 inches anywhere from the ground to the lower part of the car it’s measured with the driver with a Hight gauge you pass or you don’t, black or white as is the rule.

  19. Sounds like there’s much more to this than what’s being printed.

  20. I believe Dowling and Kopcik had ride height problems at the most recent Open 80 at Stafford(?). Is this a trend?

  21. curiousgeorge says

    The 35, 82, and the 3 all passed ride height.

  22. Simple, race tracks need to enforce these rules and not exploit favoritism.
