Dirty-301. Michael Long: Michael’s heat-race victory Sunday night was his 70th UMP win at Quincy. Only Steven DeLonjay (84) has more.
2. Steven DeLonjay: How unusual was Stevo’s 17th-place finish on Sunday? In his 132 career modified features at the Bullring, he has finished first (38) or second (22) a combined 60 times. That translates into DeLonjay finishing first or second 45.4 percent of the time.
3. Tony Dunker: Tony now has three sport mod victories and has finished second on six other occasions, yet has led just 18 feature laps all season — and 12 of those came Sunday night.
4. Denny Woodworth: Late models did not race Sunday.
5. Mark Burgtorf: Late models did not race Sunday.

6. Dave Wietholder: Dave’s third-place feature finish Sunday earned him $500 and made him the third modified driver to top $30,000 in winnings since we began tracking that stat in 2007. The top three: Michael Long ($37,065), Steven DeLonjay ($35,620) and Wietholder ($30,405).
7. Abe Huls: Abe is four feature laps led shy of becoming first stock-car driver to reach 400 for his career.
8. Austen Becerra: Although blanked Sunday night, Austen has 44 career sport compact wins (features and heats), more than double his closest challenger, Kim Abbott, who has 21.
9. Tanner Klingele: Tanner has led 24 feature laps this summer. Prior to this season, he had led just 22 in the previous two years.
10. Rickey Frankel: Late models did not race Sunday.

16. Shawn Deering: Shawn’s definitely a driver to watch in the second half. Not only has he strung together five straight solid outings, he is third all-time in second-half UMP mod points, trailing only Steven DeLonjay and Dave Wietholder.
17. Brandon Savage: The Macho Man leads all stock-car drivers this season in feature laps run (194 of 205).
18. Beau Taylor: Beau has not won a feature yet this season, but is second in feature laps led (30). Nathan Hayes (34) is first.
19. Keith Pratt: OK, vaykay is over. Time to get back to the track.

21. Kim Abbott: Another run like Sunday night and we have to start calling her the “Camp Point Comet.”
22. Jim Lynch: Yikes. What has happened to Jumpin’ Jim the last few weeks?
23. Terry Houston: Terry cannot win the overall points title, but it will be interesting to see where he winds up in the second-half standings.
24. Justin Reed: Did not race Sunday.
25. Craig Spegal: Three straight top-10 mod finishes and getting stronger.
Quincy Aerials26. Brandon Lambert: Brandon is now the third all-time money-winner in the 4-year-old sport compact series with $2,650. Kim Abbott has $4,185 and Austen Becerra $4,025.
27. Jared Schlipman: Has anyone had more engine problems this season than the 42 team?
28. Todd Reed: With Todd cracking the top 30, we have officially matched the world record for most drivers named “Reed” in one ranking.
29. Jerry Jansen: Jerry is one of three stock-car drivers to win more than $10,000. Abe Huls ($20,810) and Terry Houston ($15,595) are the others. Jerry has cashed in $10,730.
