This weekend’s forecast

August 1, 2014 2 Comments

JUSTWINimagesAll five series are in action Sunday. Racing begins at 6 p.m. Her’s what to expect:
Late models
Pick to click: Bobby Pierce, who will likely be on hand most Sunday nights down the stretch since he’s battling for UMP national honors. If he’s a no-show, I’m going with Jason Perry.
Don’t forget about: Gordy Gundaker, the son of Kevin Gundaker and a baseball player at Quincy University. He’s supposed to be in the pits the rest of the season. Gordy finished third last Sunday in his Quincy debut.
That’s a fact, Jack: Denny Woodworth is the last late model driver who has not missed a feature lap this season. He’s a perfect 255 for 255.
Pick to click: That new car of Michael Long’s looks like the one to beat among the local hotshoes.
Don’t forget about: Craig Spegal, who has been solid since his return and could be the first local driver not named (Steven) DeLonjay, Long or (Dave) Wietholder to win a feature.
That’s a fact, Jack: Since the modifieds started qualifying in 2012, DeLonjay and Long have each posted the fastest time on 11 occasions.

Pick to click: Tony Dunker. The roll has started.
Don’t forget about: Tanner Klingele. He’ll figure out how to close the deal at some point — and then watch out.
That’s a fact, Jack: The only flag-to-flag victory this season in this series belongs to Aaron Brocksieck on June 29. Brocksieck has only raced once since that victory.
Stock cars
Pick to click: Terry Houston. The second half of the season usually belongs to the Mayor of Mount Sterling.
Don’t forget about: Jerry Jansen. Mr. Bowtie has been getting racier in recent weeks.
That’s a fact, Jack: Jansen’s fourth-place feature showing last Sunday was his best since April 20.
Sport compacts
Pick to click: Austen Becerra. It’s unlikely he will go two straight weeks (again) without a feature victory.
Don’t forget about: But if he does, put your wager on the rejuvenated Kim Abbott.
That’s a fact, Jack: Becerra leads the series with 98 feature laps led. Abbott is second with 24.

    OK Mr. Dirt! I’ve been kind of quit this year, but I’m not going to let this one go. Mr Bowtie! Really! Everybody knows bowties are for tuxedos; not for racing! Mr Bowtie!! That’s low!

    Go Ford nation!

    Dirt-Bag I been quite too but that is fightin words. Very very degrading calling our good buddy Jerry Mr. Bowtie. You should address him as Your Excellence Mr. Blue Oval.
