before my battery overheated (and I did too) I was going to finish by saying Sammy Coghill won the 17 car street stock 40 lap main.The #12 car (sorry don’t remember his name) won the 22 car mod mini…er …super mini latemodel fifty lap final.And a car won a strictly stock race but I think I was brain fried by then.and oh there was some drifting at the very end.and no tirades by Yoho.And no people in the stands (hardly).
Naples kids 1-2 WTG! Thanks for play by play Zero.
Sunday races are a good idea from Nov-April in FL.
In the end Atwell was too strong for anybody.Dylan Bigley used the re-starts to his advantage and got up to the front out of nowhere after being mired back in the bottom of the top ten through the first half of the race and was really the only one not being gapped too far by Atwell at the end.The heat wasn’t totally unbearable since passing clouds kept it away quite a bit and a strong breeze helped.But when it did pop out…it was a meltdown. Given the weather situation lately I’m sure they are just glad to get it in at this point.But the crowd was pretty pathetic and I’m sure there was probably more in the stands the night before.For Yoho’s sake not helpful as that was the cheaper front gate ticket of the two nights.
