    Jac was at WCS on June 2nd. It was an unannouced suprise appearence and I enjoyed the show. I have no idea where the ASCoC was that night, nor do I know where they are racing this weekend. I expect some non-regulars to be at Wayne County this Saturday.

    Why would Jac be there? He is running the All-stars and they have 4 races this week.

    Weekend Highlights
    -The Dirt Late Model Million currently sits at a day 2 purse of $369,589 dollars that is approximately $188k to win. The blockbuster crowd funded race at Mansfield Motor Speedway and Sanctioned by the Lucas Oil late models promises to be a race to remember. Currently there are 99 drivers registered for the event including the Lucas Oil Regulars and some of the other biggest names in late models. Some notables include Scott Bloomquist, Jonathan Davenport, Dale McDowell, Bobby Pierce, Josh Richards, Jimmy Owens, Shane Clanton, Jeep Van Wormer, Don O'Neal, and many many more. Including many locals pre-entered such as Doug Drown, Ryan Markham, Matt Irey, Casey Noonan, Corey Conley, and the Carpenters. The previous Lucas Oil show this year at Mansfield featured a solid count of cars and with this much money on the line an even better event can be expected. Certainly the biggest race on the weekend.

    -Moler Raceway Park postponed their Ike Moler memorial to this Friday after rain interfered with last weeks attempt. Many of the southern locals can still be expected to be there, but with the Dirt Million some of the top dogs may be at Mansfield this weekend.

    -Attica Raceway Park will be having Season Championship night with the 410 and 305 sprints with lots of money and bragging rights on the line. One point seperates Byron Reed and Stuart Brubaker for the track championship so literally every position matters. The battle will likely come down to who wins between these two drivers, but with double points it is possible that Cap Henry and others could snipe the title if both Reed and Brubaker have an off night. Meanwhile, Weaver has a 23 point lead over Kyle Capodice in the 305s. Meaning Capodice would need to finish 6 spots higher than Weaver (thanks to double points) in order to claim the title. The Late Models will have their season championship during the Dirt Classic Ohio weekend. The top 10 in 410s and 305s are below.
    410 Winged Sprints
    305 Winged Sprints
    -The OVSCA sprints return to their home track at Atomic Speedway with their points race heating up as well between Jason Dolick and Dave Dickson for the OVSCA title. Danny Smith has a pretty solid lead over Nate Reeser for the Atomic track championship. They've been having pretty consistent car counts and with both 410s and Late Models on the card the show for meet the drivers night.

    -Wayne County wraps up their track championships for everything except the Late Models this weekend as well on Saturday with a tight battle that will come down to the final race between Jordan Ryan and Danny Mumaw for the 410 sprint track championship. Bob Daugherty all but wrapped up the super stock championship over Paul Holmes and Brandon Craver who are currently tied for second, but with being allowed up to two races to "drop" the low points it's still possible for the duo to overcome Daugherty's lead. Doug Hensel leads the Mini Stock championship and with Cory Staley in second and Doug Hensel in 3rd.

    -Portsmouth Raceway Park will also be hosting their Kids night on Saturday with their regular show on the cards featuring Late Models, Modifieds, Sport mods, and Limited Late Models.

    Weekend Plans
    While I included this in the prior weekend outlook, I'm planning on going to the Fremont Fair Race tomorrow assuming the rain stays away. I work this weekend so no racing for me this weekend otherwise unless I find something interesting nearby on Sunday.

    The light in turn 3 didn't come on until he was already at it. The rest of the field might have been in turn 2. guess we agree to disagree.
