Its hard to believe it’s the final night of the year. With 141 off, Saturday will most likely bring a few new faces. Speaking of faces the track saw 136 drivers take the green flag for the 2013 season. For those teams getting ready for the IMCA Super Nationals we wish you the best of luck! Racing kicks off in Boone, Iowa starting on Monday and the super features will take place on Saturday. This season has really been good for our local drivers as they have taken several big wins in out of state specials. Benji LaCrosse, Tracy Wassenberg and Jeremy Christains each have brought home the prestigious honor of Super Nationals champion. The races can be seen on your computer with www.xsan.tv the entire week with a paid fee, similar to pay-per-view.
Down to the meat of championship night, James Tebon has locked up the title in the Modifieds. Its his second straight championship in the division.
The Stock Car crown is still to be decided as defending champ Dave Bouche holds a 12 point gap over Shawn Havel. There has been talk of added drivers for this class coming into Saturday so anything is possible. If Bouche finishes 11th or better he will lock up the championship regardless of where Havel finishes.
A closer contest comes in way of the Sport Mods. Defending champ Bernie Reinhardt comes into the night just 3 points ahead of Randy LeMiuex Jr. Jarred VanLaanen is also in the mix sitting 5 points behind Reinhardt.
3 points is also the gap in the Hobby Stocks where Scott Boulanger leads Derek Moede. Joe Hegnet still has a chance at the title but needs help being 11 out of the lead.
Keith Kickbusch just has to start the feature to take his first Street Stock title.
Five divisions do battle every Saturday night through the summer. IMCA Modified, IMCA Stock Car, IMCA Northern Sport Mod, IMCA Hobby Stock and Street Stocks will compete on the 1/3rd mile clay oval.
