I had heard that Alan Bruns #4B (former Track Champion from NSS and OSW in the same Year) might be running a Mod also… Not for sure though.

Any idea if there will be any tape-delayed TV coverage of the event?

According to the Bristol website this may be on Versus in late October, one can only hope this is accurate

I believe that Dave Steele will be there in a sprint, also.

Bristol

Well our trip started out with Shane Miller, Mickey Kempgens, Teddy Kempgens,
Dustin Perez, Mike Alvez and myself. If that aint a crew I dont know what is. Non stop 12 hours arrived early Friday am. Went straight to the track. As I walked into the infield and looked up I was in AHHHHHH. Now I know why it is called the worlds fastest half mile. For those of you that have never been there I highly recommend putting it on your bucket list. Florida drivers were well represented. In the mod minis James Ellis from Brooksville in an eagles nest car had a very strong 2nd place run in the feature, also Chris Zimmerman was in the show and had a good run.In the street stocks Jeremy Gerstner from Wesley Chapel had a very strong 3rd place finish. Jeremy also did double duty competing in the OWM class. This guy just cant get enough. He truley loves to race. In the sprint car class all I can say is wow. Track record was broke 8 times in quallifing. The new track record is 12.742 150 mile an hour average. That was set by Brain Gerster now thats toting the mail. Troy Decaire came into this race leading the points chase by three, he lost an engine in the last practice session Sat morning. They had to go to a back up motor he missed qualifing and he had to start last in the fourth heat race. He told me he would be all right by lap 4 he was leading the heat. This young man is fearless. Troy started the feature 24th and came all the way to second claiming the 2011 must see extreme spint car championship. Great job Troy. Then came the mods witch had the most florida drivers entered. Jefferson, Moff, Gerstner, Scaggs,McCellan, McKinley, Bruns now you know why they call Jefferson the rocket man he set fast time with a 16.192 118 mph. In the Kevin Terry owned 4Cs chasis machine prepared by Jason at Eagles Nest Racing. Wayne led all 40 laps Good job. Doug Moff came from the 15th starting position to 4th another lap and he would of had 3rd. Earning the hard charger award. LB Scaggs made contact with the wall in qualifing and those guys thrashed to fix the car to make the feature. Jf McCellan broke a motor and had to change engines to start 18th. The top 5 finishers all went threw teck but all the msd boxes were confiscated to be checked and returned at a later date. I have pics i will try to post later. As far as the tv coverage it will be versus tape delayed Dec1st. check there web site for details, and it will only be for the sprint cars. Bob Culbertson you could have made a small fortune no one was there doing that for the other classes

Good post and well written. Thanks, billy

Bristol
