4-Wide Salute to Fans…[/I][/B]

Travis Sauter wins, with Chase Elliott 2nd.

Our Florida guys:

Aric Almirola got 8th after starting 35th
Jeff Choquette finished 10 after starting 28th
Ben Kennedy got in some early trouble and only getting a 33rd place after starting a nice solid 7th.

Sounded like an outstanding event with 72 Late Models, 44 Super-8 series cars (basically a Limited LM), and 21 Trucks. And all of this on a Tuesday night. And in the Vintage racecars also on hand, and there were over 140 racecars on track tonight.

PS - When is Almirola gonna start getting some respect? He’s done a pretty decent job at Petty Motorsports, and climbed 27 spots tonight in an unfamiliar car, and outraced a BUNCH of racers that get a lot more ink.

I think the kid is doing a great, but under-appreciated job in several different series over the last couple of years. Too bad nobody pays any attention.
