It’s a big weekend, with plenty of big predictions …

1. Best bet to win late model midseason championship race: Court will be in session Sunday night when the red-hot late model lawyer, Denny Woodworth, wins his first midseason championship event.

2. Best bet to win modified midseason championship race:  Michael Long. If he’s not there, the pick is Jared Schlipman, who is now officially “wicked fast.”

3. Best bet to win stock car midseason championship race: Terry Houston, who has been the most consistent performer in this series.

4. Best bet to win hobby stock midseason championship race: Bobby Anders. He looks unbeatable — again.

5. Driver who could emerge as second-half threat in late models: Bill Genenbacher, who has quietly climbed to fourth in points.

6. Driver who could emerge as second-half threat in modifieds: Tony Dunker is traditionally strongest in the second half, so don’t write him off yet. Here are the second-half points leaders since 2007:

Tony Dunker, 1,109 points
Robbie Reed, 1,007
Dave Wietholder, 988
Shawn Deering, 975
Michael Long, 970
Jared Schlipman, 840
Justin Reed, 741
Steven DeLonjay, 737

7. Driver who could emerge as second-half threat in stock cars: Jerry Jansen.

8. Driver who could emerge as second-half threat in hobby stocks: I still think Mike Wiley will be a factor before the end of points racing.

9. Best bet to be most popular figure at the track Sunday night: Hope Cernea, the new trophy girl.

10. Best bet for my first food purchase Sunday evening: We may opt for the funnel cake this week.  

 BLOG CONTRIBUTORS OF THE WEEK

Gold medal: Just when I had written him off for the week, “Team 4 Fan” comes through a classic string of comments, starting with Daisy Duke and the boots. Hail the first back-to-back gold medal winner.

Silver medal: “Girl Mod Fan,” bounced from the awards podium a week ago, rebounds in style with a strong week.

Bronze medal: Stock cars have been a hot topic the past week and fueling the fire has been “Kurtis,” a first-time medal recipient.

  5. racefan says:

    Sucks I thought we were there to watch the racers, If a lot of the women were ask they would probably tell you what they think of the girl in the Daisy Dukes. She is probably a nice gal, but that’s not what they are seeing in her.

    A couple bulling predictions from my magic ball. Next week when people blog they will not be confusing stock cars with bumper cars. Dustin Griffin will the crate late models and trade paint with at least 3 of them since most will be from out of town. Kurtis will blog another clever smack down but make it alright by putting I’m just saying at the end. QR will become a temperary outlaw track, if you’re not on fire or upside down no caution, and some drivers will become better for it. Denny and Slip will take features & now that no beer is riding on it so will brocksiek and sure why not anders. Finally GMF will cry in her beer because wyatt was a no show once again.

  14. Qcy Godfather says:

    Maybe you can get Mr. Dirt to take off his shirt and put speedos on and pose with a car.

  15. Girl Mod Fan says:

  16. seighinger says:

    If Stevie Dirt were to take off his shirt, the first thought when seeing the picture would simply be: ‘WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW!”

  17. bullringfan says:

    would that be “welcome to the gun show” or “we wish we would have brought a gun to the show to put ourselves out of our misery?” lol

  18. Kurtis says:

    Who makin the trip to Lee Co. tonight? Should be a great stock car show and an even better modified show.
