Race #1 of 4 of the Finale for the 2014 Track Championship Aug. 23 Race Report


Six (6) cars were on hand for the Race #1 of 4 of the Finale for the 2014 Track Championship. The turnout was a little low due to two of our racers were traveling to QSAC Speed Week in Iowa. Scott Harper and Tim Smith representing CCRC, Good Luck Guys and bring back the Trophies. Allen Johnson also did not race due to illness, but he did show some intestinal fortitude and ran the computer in the Scoring Booth.

The temperature was blistering, 100 degrees, the saving grace was the humidity was not very high for a change.

The points have been reset for the final four (4) races for the Track Championship.

Lineup of the Main was:
1st   Jerry Evans
2nd Eddie Dunn 
3rd Woody Trimble
4th Mike Clark
5th James Adamson
6th Wayne Rogers 

Jerry Evans would stay out front until till the fuel break at Lap 75. The Biggest mover was Mike Clark up to 2nd, Woody Trimble 3rd, Eddie Dunn down to 4th, Wayne Rogers 5th and James Adamson 6th- 2 laps down with a loose car.

A Late caution would bunch the field up tight but Jerry Evans would lead every lap and take the Win. Over the last 50 laps Mike Clark put some pressure on Jerry but could not quite get up to Jerry and finished 2nd .321 seconds back. Eddie Dunn climbed back up one spot from the halfway point and finished 3rd 1.034 back. Wayne Rogers 4th 1.696 back, Woody Trimble 5th 2.264 back and James Adamson finished 6th one lap down.
