Miley spun in turn 1 about halfway thru race trying to catch Norris. Had to go tail.  King had at least 3 shots at a restart and finally got Norris.  Not taking anything away from him,  he earned it.   But it took him 28 laps.  In Pro Stocks,  Zambotti got a flat on lap 1 and got slammed trying to get of to pit road by Byers (29).  Somehow got back out without loosing a lap and put on a show.

There is a big difference as to why Mike Norris is a track champion and last night was a good example. Earning a race and taking a race are not the same thing! Norris doesnt spin out people to win a race.

Actually, Miley spun on the white flag lap, as he went for broke and got up too high in the first turn.

Not sure what spin you're referring to Bez.  Many types of drivers in dirt racing.  That's why I like it.  I think its good for L'ville and the sport to have someone to compete with 72.  He was so dominant last year.  If your gonna beat him,  you gotta race hard and be aggressive.  That's when bad things happen.  I hope they race like that every week!!!

Think Miley may have spun due to oil put down by the blown engine in John Weaver's car.

I missed the start of the spin, so had to ask. Someone said that Norris helped Miley go around. IDK, and that's generally out of character for Norris, but then again, it's hard to get rough when everyone else is at least a corner behind you. 


My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.

BTW, the new dirt looks racey. The top and bottom slicked off pretty evenly, but it was also humid and cold, so we'll have to see. 

 

I had to work in the morning, so I didn't walk the track, but I didn't see a cushion from the stands.

I don't think Mike helped Jared go around, Jared was taking one last chance for the win, and I think he just got a little too high, and as Walt said, some of the oil from John Weaver's car may have been a factor.
