It was a great ASA Midwest tour race at Elko Speedway on Sunday (June 6th) after getting rained out the previous night.
17 yr old star Ross Kenseth (#25) drove a masterfull race leading about 90 laps of the 100 lap event at Elko. He started 4th and passed Tim Shendel to take the lead early in the race.
He then held off Jonathan Eilen (who later dropped out with electrical problems) and then Chris Wimmer (who started 9th) for about 30 laps side-by-side at the end of the race, Jacob Goede finished a close third after starting 14th. Donny Reuvers got 4th after starting 12th and Nathan Haseleu finished 5th after starting way back in 21st. Very clean racing, lots of passing and fun for the fans who showed up on the "rain date."
Dean and I had the opportunity to be the Public Address announcers at Elko for the day and called all the races. It was a blast for us, we also announced the inagural ASA Midwest tour race at Elko back in 2007.
We will have an interview with runner-up Chris Wimmer (in the picture with Jason) and will have much to say about this great event on "Speedtalk on 1360" this Saturday from 10-11am on KRWC radio and http://www.krwc1360.com/
Adam Royle won his 5th straight SLM feature at Raceway Park and Tim Brockhouse won the "Click Club Challenge" Great North Legends race.
Denny Hamlin won the Pocono race so, both Jason and Jordan picked that one right on the http://www.speedworksdiecast.com/ contest. Jordan leads with 20pts, Jason 15 and Dean only 5pts.
