Late Model Preview
The competition this season in the Late Model division has been absolutely incredible. In six Late Model races, we have had six different winners! Those six races have seen a combined total of 11 lead changes. 5 of the 6 Late Model features this year have had lead changes. 2 of the 6 have seen the final lead change occur on the final lap. 5 of the 6 LM features have seen the final lead change occur within the last 10 laps of the race; 3 of those within the final 5 laps.
Grayson, Kentucky’s Jackie Boggs took the feature win last weekend. Can Boggs win his second feature in a row on Friday and become the first repeat winner of the season? Two time track champion R. J. Conley goes into Friday as the current Late Model points leader. Can Conley visit victory lane for the second time this season? How about West Virginia driver Steve Lucas? Lucas led the first 19 laps of last Friday’s A-Main, can Lucas get his first SOS win? We will find out on Friday.
Doug “The Buzzard” Adkins won a very exciting Modified feature last weekend. Adkins has been fast this year, claiming two feature wins and moving into second in points. Last year’s track champion Jeremy Rayburn finished second on Friday and battled for the lead with Adkins all race long. Will Rayburn claim his first victory of 2013 on Friday? Can Adkins win his second feature in a row? How about 2011 track champion Adam Colley? Colley finished third last week and will be chasing his first win of 2013 on Friday. Should be another great show!
