Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 9 a.m.: The rain stopped at Flat Rock Speedway around 7 a.m., the skies are beginning to break and it's full speed ahead for tonight's 7-Up 125 for the ARCA/CRA Super Series Late Models and the track's 300 lap Enduro championship race!
This is the first appearance ever for this touring series at "The Rock". The stock-bodied Late Models will be led by current point leader Johnny VanDoorn. Kenzie Ruston, one of the top female stock car drivers in the nation, tested last week at the track and is ready to go.
Veteran Scott Hantz is expected to be strong, along with Terry Fisher Jr. Flat Rock driver Stan Yee Jr. is entered, along with former Flat Rock racer and ARCA Truck Series champ Paul Hahn, both of whom have hundreds of laps under their belts at the track.
The 300 lap Enduro championship promises to be filled with excitement as 5 drivers still have a shot at the Enduro title. Matt Ringger holds the cards for the championship going into the final race, which is 50 laps longer than the traditional Enduro races. This calls for strategy, as many drivers will have to pit for fuel, throwing more interest and drama into the mix!
Practice begins at 3:30, time trials are at 5, Big wheel races for kids 10 and under are at 6, an on-track autograph session with the ARCA/CRA drivers takes place at 6:30 and racing begins at 7 p.m.
See you tonight---425 laps of racing, only at Flat Rock Speedway!
