Last week’s drama unfolded at the 1/2 mile Stafford Motor Speedway. Fifteen drivers took qualifying time with Jim Windrow in the 12 setting fast time at 19.475 sec. Dave Melson’s #13 would join Windrow on the front row. The race had 14 lead changes among 6 drivers being slowed 10 times for cautions. Windrow would lead the most circuits at 52 but it would be the 50 of Chad Barcomb leading 36 circuits and come on to pass the #12, not only for the lead, but go on to take down his Series leading 5th win of the season. Windrow would hold onto a 2nd place finish as the 58 starting 3rd maintained his position and crossed the line with a 3rd place finish.
This week’s drama takes place at the 5/8 mile Thompson Speedway with the Season ending 100 lap night event. Jim Windrow leads Chad Barcomb by 6 points in the point standings. Chad won the day event, the first race of the year over Windrow. Barcomb also won the two Thompson events under the the Winston Modified Series as well, which indicates that Barcomb owns Windrow at Thompson. The pressure will be on Windrow for the Season title. Melson, Hill and Warden round out the top 5 points standings. This season will guarantee the 3rd different Title winner, joining Hill and Melson as the other Season Champions under the STR SimRacing banner. Regular and Invader drivers will take practice at 8:30 PM EDT with qualifying set for approximately 9 PM EDT.
