Zena Jenkins Wins another close one in the Tuner Division… The tuner class is quickly becoming one of Highland Rim’s most competitive and popular divisions. With the rain and the inversion by points the TEAM RDM cars of Tdog and Pdiddy are inverted to the front row. We could not have had two better looking cars on the front row especially being team cars… It looked awesome to see the Back in Black Cars ready to get it on. It seemed the entire field was ready to get it on and at the drop of the green that’s exactly what they did as they went three wide into turn one and that almost never works and tonight was no different with a multi car pileup happening.. On the restart the RDM 22 car of Pdiddy jumped to the lead with Zena Jenkins #43 into the second spot and the 40 of Toby Tobitt on the heals of the lady in the 43 ride. By lap five Zena Jenkins had made her way to the lead with Mr. Tobitt chomping at the bit to try and get around her and the #56 car of Sean Frederick hot on the trial of the 40 car of T. Tobitt. Toby Tobitt came to race tonight as he goes to the outside of the lady in the 43 car they are racing side by side with Toby leading by a few inches at the stripe. Going into turn one Zena takes another look inside of Toby Tobitt however coming off of turn two toby has the high line and the momentum is his… coming off turn four the 40 of Tobitt has the lead all by himself in second was the #43 of Zena Jenkins, third was the #56 of Sean Frederick, fourth was the #17 of Adam Lawrence and the 77 of Chris Carlisle and the 08 of Ronnie Upchurch battling for position all nose to tail or side by side.. Now with 6 cars in position to get a win we have got a race going on and the fans are absolutely loving it. Caution comes out slowing the pace of the field bunching everyone back up for a double file restart. On the restart Zena and Toby are side by side going into one and down the back shute they are even and at the stripe they are still battling side by side. Going through one and two and down the back stretch they are even once again however Zena drives in deep into turn three and coming off turn four Zena edges ahead. With the Princess warrior firmly in the lead the 40 of Toby Tobitt is now under attack from Sean Fredrick in the 56.. The 56 is trying the outside of the 40 car and he makes it work taking the second spot from the black 40. The 43 geta little loose in turn one and the 56 closes in on her.. As the laps wind down they are all nose to tail with the 43 leading, the 56 in second, the 40 in third, the 08 of Ronnie Upchurch in fourth and the 17 of Adam Lawrence in 5th.. Coming off turn four for the checkers they stay in the same position and Zena Jenkins comes across the line to pickup another checkered flag. *** This was a great race by all our drivers.. (The New Tuner class is getting a lot of attention in the racing world especially in the surrounding for the GREAT competition this class is producing. Many out of town racers from Huntsville, Beech Bend and other tracks are contacting the speedway wanting to know what it will take to make their cars legal to come race in the New Tuner class.
We are expecting several out of town drivers with both rear wheel drive and FWD cars to be showing up in the near future to test the competition in the Tuner Class at The Rim).
