May has already arrived, and if it is anything like the way April was, race fans are in for a treat.
So far, Gary Stuhler has established himself as the driver to beat in Super Late Model competition. He has three wins in out of four races, and has started no better than fifth.
Kyle Lear is off to a great start in the Late Model Sportsman division with two wins, and consistent finishes near the front of the pack.
Jamie Zentmyer is the only repeat winner in Pure Stock, but he was in a different car than what he started the season with. Time will tell if he can return to his early season form.
Hobby Stock racing has featured different winners each week with battles for the win coming down to the checkered flag. It’s hard to pick a favorite or dominant car in this class for 2017.
The month of May brings us another appearance of the Crate Late Models in addition to our regular show divisions on May 6.
We take a week off of racing for the annual Bonanza Extravaganza over Mother’s Day weekend on May 12-14.
