1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stock driver Brian "Hothead" Mullins took that big first win last week and hopes to become the 2nd to go back-to-back. Jonathan Appleby, the driver to win 3-in-a-row, is chasing "Hothead" as he tries for that Championship. Jason Gamble is now 2 races back but holds onto 3rd as Bubba Durbin is 1 and a half races behind Gamble! Also, Brandon Elwood has built a lead over John Thorpe for 5th proving that every position matters to every driver.
In the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators it is Reid Christensen out front but he is ineligible for points (the same way as in NASCAR. Another driver also accepted these terms) leaving "Terrific" Tony LaPorta as the points leader by 21. Steve "Scooby-Doo" Johnson is the man chasing and if he starts the feature he will lead the standings. In 3rd (after Christensen is removed) is "Little Big Show" Jordan McMillon as he attempts to be the youngest champion in the 60-year history of the track. Brandon Haseleu and Kody Fisher are seasoned veterans who have yet to win a feature on the 1/3 mile or become eligible for their driver's license. Very mature drivers have flourished from this class and it truly is a Youth Movement against LaPorta and Johnson.
