Gower came close, but …

Joey Gower came that close to ending Tony Dunker’s dominance in the sport mod overall money earnings. Gower won $3,853 last season, but that was $45 shy of Dunker’s winning $3,898 total. That was closest of any of the 2014 cash register battles. Dunker also won the money-earned-in-points-races-only crown with $3,295. The three-time sport mod […]

It’s Abe’s world, we’re just passing through

The only certainty in an uncertain series is Abe Huls. Not only has Huls won back-to-back stock car division titles — and will be trying in 2015 to become the 10th driver in track history to reach four overall championships — he has absolutely dominated the money earnings in the series the past three seasons. […]

A few years ago I wanted to create an ultimate sort of […]

Will late model trend continue in 2015?

There has not been a repeat track champion at Quincy Raceways in the late model division since 2006-07 when Mark Burgtorf turned the trick, capping a magnificent run that saw him win 14 track titles in a 16-year span. Burgtorf has a chance to end the no-repeat streak in 2015 after winning this year’s championship […]

Is the crowd gaining on Dunker?

Granted, Tony Dunker has virtually owned the sport mod division in its developing years, but is El Presidente beginning to lose some of his grip? Dunker won his third straight title this season, but did not lead the series in total wins, feature victories or heat wins. Dunker had swept all of those categories — […]

Huls builds stock-car dominance

One of the more intriguing questions about the 2015 season is whether or not someone in the stock car division can mount a serious charge at Abe Huls. Huls has won the last two championships — giving him three overall — and has been to victory lane more frequently than any other driver in the […]

Becerra has left his mark

For the past three years Austen Becerra owned the sport compact series — lock, stock and barrel. Becerra not only left the class (in favor of the sport mods) with a pair of track titles, but every major single season career record in the 4-year history of the series. Becerra also has the high-water marks […]
