 photo WP_20160724_22_25_06_Pro-MATT-WINS-800px.jpg
Sunday, July 24th, 2016, Week 6 – Thus far this season, three drivers–Matt Stevens (3 wins), Chris Stevens (3 wins) and Kelly Miller (2 wins)–have been have been hogging all of the wins and the high-point-earning top three positions, and it shows in the point standings. Between the three, it has been whomever can get to the lead first… wins. And today it was Matt Stevens, who pulled away from the rest of the field when he secured the lead after avoiding a mid-feature pileup in turn 2. The track held up much better this week, so Matt’s work paid off in two ways – satisfied racers and a victory for himself. Point standings will be updated soon, but in the meantime, the complete race video on YouTube video is here.
