The Dirty Thirty: Dunker continues No. 1 reign

July 31, 2012 18 Comments

1. (1.) Tony Dunker: Three track titles and a national championship all in the same season? We’re talking Mark Burgtorf territory here.
2. (3.) Michael Long: Michael is obviously in one his grooves. Is another three-win weekend on tap?
3. (2.) Steven DeLonjay: Look who is back on top of the modified points.
4. (4.) Abe Huls: He’s tied the stock car feature win record. Does he break it this week?
5. (8.) Mark Burgtorf: Mark was in the Blonde No. 7 last Sunday. Mark won the feature. A coincidence? We’ll let you decide.
6. (5.) Jared Schlipman: Make it five straight top-five feature finishes.
7. (11.) Justin Reed: Justin promised there would be plenty of ups and downs this season while getting a handle on the new UMP package. He wasn’t kidding.
8. (6.) Tanner Klingele: Tanner was bouncing off more objects last Sunday than the U.S. men’s gymnastics team. And unfortunately, both had the same kind of week.
9. (7.) Jason Perry: The last place Jason wanted to view the the final 10 laps of Sunday’s feature was from the infield.
10. (9.) Dustin Griffin: It all went so wrong so fast.

No. 6 Jared Schlipman, No. 2 Michael Long and No. 1 Tony Dunker -- and former trophy girl Hope Cernea.

11. (10.) Dave Wietholder: By Sunday, July will be over, Dave. August has to be better.
12. (17.) Robbie Reed: Great new look for the car, Mr. Reed.
13. (16.) Austin Becerra: You know you’re having a good year when a second-place finish is a disappointment.
14. (20.) Clint Kirkham: Highest ranking ever for the No. 28.
15. (23.) Jake Powers: The Snake is back from sheet-metal purgatory.
16. (18.) Jim Moon: Hopefully, the Moon Man will make Quincy his Sunday night home next season, too.
17. (25.) Joe Bliven: You wuz robbed.
18. (12.) Bobby Anders: Bobby’s sport mod was clocked at 65 mph last Sunday in the County Markey parking lot.
19. (14.) Shawn Deering: Shawn spent way too much time sitting in the stands Sunday night instead of behind the wheel of his modified.
20. (13.) Brian Hoener: Brian’s was not one of the three cars left running at the end of last Sunday’s crashfest.

No. 28. Michael Larsen races Darin Weisinger.

21. (15.) Brandon Symmonds: Neither was Brandon’s.
22. (21.) Terry Houston: It’s been six shows since the pride of Mount Sterling has won a feature. That might be his longest drought in a stock car.
23. (19.) Denny Woodworth: An uncharacteristic early exit in the late model main event.
24. (22.) Jake Griffin: Jake had the same kind of Sunday night that Tanner Klingele did.
25. (26.) Brad Holtmeyer: Four top-fives in his past five main events. He must be listening to what the old man is telling him.
26. (24.) Matt Bailey: What’s this week off stuff?
28-tie. (29.) Kim Abbott: Looks the stretch run in the sport compacts will be a two-car battle between Kim and Seth Woodruff.
28-tie. (28) Seth Woodruff: Ditto.
28-tie. (29.) Jerry Jansen: Might be time to bring the blue car out of storage, Jerry.
28-tie. (-) Jerry Lierly: Good to see No. 7 back at the Bullring.
28-tie. (-) Michael Larsen: Michael has the heat races figured out, and it appears he’s getting closer on the features.

  4. Dave Moore says:

    Michael What engine-carb setup you runin? Looks like its working pretty good. Now we got two chevys to beat.

  5. Michael Larsen says:

    I will be dead honest with you like i have everyone that has asked Dave. I am running a domed 355 with the 350 carb. For anyone that doesn’t believe that, when i tear it down at the end of the year they are more then welcome to come watch. It is just working very well….less horse means to tire spinning like what a started with…..all in all…..my thanks goes out to Kevin Tomlinson for helping me to get this thing set up were it’s at today!

    Stevie, I think I’m goin’ to paint the car red. Every body says red is faster. :)

  11. Dave Moore says:

    Jerry, they told you wrong about the color. Yellow is byfar the Fasts. That the reason Terry isn’t fast enough. He doesn’t have any yellow on the car. It’s one of the basic setup rules you gotta have yellow on your car. No yellow no win. Even the buckeye bullet (S. Dirt)knows this for a fact.

  12. lead foot says:

    Flyby Tony is 11th in national points and you dont think he has a chance.What happened with the Cards last fall? World Champs and every body wrote them off dont write off the 3 team yet.I think they still have life in them to WIN.Has Charlie Sheen would say WINNER.
