Three Titles at Stake on Jack Link’s Snack Attack Nightadmin
Championship season kicks into high gear as Jack Link’s Snack Attack night settles three hard-fought division titles. The Coors Super Stocks, Budweiser Modifieds, and Domino’s Legends complete their 2015 seasons Saturday night while the College of Western Idaho Professional Truck Driving Program Street Stocks and Tates Rents Hornets Rookies speed one step closer to their own season-ending checkered flags.
The competitive Coors Super Stock division has produced the most consistently close point battle on the quarter-mile in 2015. Racing into the final night of action point leader Ray Bolinger holds a slim fifteen marker margin over Lynn Sharp and Gale Carter, who are tied for the runner up spot. Will Bolinger conclude his march of consistency with a championship trophy? Can Sharp or Carter put together the race of their season and storm to the title? Only Saturday night’s feature will tell.
Thirty one is the magic number in the Budweiser Modified ranks. That’s how many points separate the top three contenders Randy Keckley, Darvin Ackerland, and Josh Jackson and the separation between Robert Rendo and Dave Wurtz as they tussle for Rookie of the Year honors. Keckley is one of only three men to win a Budweiser Modified championship, but second place point man Darvin Ackerland is also on the short list of past champions. Though Jackson was forced to a backup car after a wicked mid-season practice crash he’s done anything but slow down and will be in position to take advantage of any slip made by the top two runners.
The Domino’s Legends landscape has changed dramatically in the past weeks with division dominator Peyton Saxton sitting out the last event. In Saxton’s absence Casey Tillman raced his way to the top of the division standings with Zach Blume just five points in his rearview mirror. Even Saxton remains within striking distance, just nineteen markers out of the championship lead. With one race to settle it all who shows up, who wins the race, and who goes home with the 2015 championship trophy?
Two races stand between Melissa Weaver and her sixth College of Western Idaho Professional Truck Driving Program Street Stock title. The first half of 2015 belonged to Weaver as the lady racer racked up main event trophy after main event trophy. Bad luck has relaxed Weaver’s stranglehold of late and allowed Daniel Johnson to show his skill around the quarter-mile. Watch Weaver’s drive to finish the season strong Saturday.
The Tates Rents Hornets standings are in for a shakeup as the division holds its final rookies only invitational event Saturday. Who will make the most of this opportunity?
