A couple of exciting entries are set to run this weekend that are great additions.
Most prominent is Rico Abreu who is the hottest short track racer in America right now. 25 wins last season and last weekends Chili Bowl win over 316 entries puts any driver into the ‘cut above’ territory. This will be his first start in a stock car.
Tyler Dippel is from NY, and is primarily a Dirt Mid racer. At only 15 years old, this kid races anything, anywhere. His run at the Charlotte World Finals turned the heads of a national TV audience. He also nearly got a 2nd place finish in last year’s race at NSS , which wasn’t named the Pete Orr race this time last year. A last lap tangle with Bobby Good sent his crumpled car around to a 4th place finish with his right front tire pointing in the wrong direction.
Dalton Sargent will be running in only his 8th SLM start, but many folks will remember his 7th start… runner-up at the Snowball Derby. He will also return to NSS at the K&N race, as he starts his full season run in that division. He and Rico will be teammates on that circuit racing for H Scott Motorsports.
Spencer Davis is no stranger to turning LOTS of laps here, but appears he is getting the handle on the place, with a win in the PLM car and I believe a 4th in his SLM at the Gov Cup weekend.
Add in all the regular racers at the big NSS events, and you’ve got quite a show coming this weekend.
