Five in a row for Justin Reed

Justin Reed

Since it’s done little but rain the past three weeks — at least on the weekends — it’s allowed some extra time to dig into the Stevie Dirt files and check on some weird and strange stuff, such as top late model performers each season at Bullring under the age of 30.

I looked into this a few years ago, and the following is an updated list, which shows a couple of surprising — or at least mildly interesting — things. For example:

– Justin Reed has been the top under-30 guy for five straight seasons, the second time that has happened in the 22 seasons we have such records for. And in case you are wondering, Justin is only 25, so he could “win” a few more of these accomplishments.

– Only three different under-30 drivers have won titles, and one of them, Mark Burgtorf, did it four straight years.

–  There has been an under-30 driver in the top five in points every year but one — 1996, when Jason Frankel was sixth.

    and that’s why you get the big bucks, boom — to catch my mistakes! hopefully by the time you read this I will have made the correction … i’ve really been hanging around the blonde girls too much …

    Bahawawa Slocum still has 5 but I never even counted. Dirt I’m told it’s all in the set-up & that’s why you & I will never be allowed to work on racecars. But with that sharp catch you got that fast set-up figured out yet boom. Ya know to give Dunker a run for his money.
