Richmond saw long green flag runs and few cautions until the end of the race. Commitment cone violations or, as one driver put it, balls and strikes, bit several drivers today. When the final laps wound down Kirt's team was out front smoking everybody with a total of 219 points today. Congrats to Kirt for his first win of the season. Mac came in second with an impressive 181 points. Donald, aka my dad, had another good points day taking third place with 174 points. Now everyone, get ready to roll the dice... on to Talladega wOOt!
Another one two punch by the Wards this week. Jeff Ward takes first place with 150 points. His team has been unstoppable. His Dad, Mike Ward takes another second place with 148 points. There has been some rumbling in the garage about flared fenders and weaving back and forth at the end of races to reset some components. Maybe another trip through inspection for these two teams? Either way keep an eye on the Ward duo. They are moving to the front in overall points in a hurry. Jeff Bucy's team makes it way to the front this week with a third place finish. Only a few points separated him from the top spot. Great job! Now on to Richmond wOOt!
