The Late Model Points RACE is all knotted up in a DEAD HEAT between Mike Barrett & Young Gun Kyle Ivey both drivers are perched atop the points with 218 points each.. Ivey the young GUN in the 51 Machine has held the points lead much of the early season after seeing Victory Lane early in the season however minor problems had been plaguing him until the last race where he finished 2nd. Mike Barrett has been on the rebound chasing the young Gun most of the season after falling behind in the points early in the season.. A couple months ago Mike stated he had already had his bad luck and he felt Kyle was due some.. It appears he was correct as Barrett has been steadily closing the gap while the young gun had struggled through several races. Both Drivers have now obtain 218 points in the title chase. In the last race Kyle Ivey finished 2nd while Mike could only manage a 4th place finish. It is almost unheard of for a point race to be tied in a Premier Late Model Series at any track across the country.. Many drivers and fans are giving the stepped up TECH process and the Tech crews attention to detail as the main reason we have such a high level of competition at Highland Rim Speedway..
Scott Gay is solidly in 3rd in the Late Model Points race only 16 points out of 1st place.. Scott is another veteran that can drive the wheels off anything he sits in and he is proving that he is a threat in this division as well.
Rookie Walt Garrison is doing absolutely GREAT in his freshman year in the premier Late Model Division is well within striking distance at only 30 point out of 1st place.
Veteran Wayne White in his Cumberland International Tractor and Equipment Camaro has slipped into 5th place in points after missing the last late model race while tending to his wife as she was giving birth to the couples big baby boy… By the way both the baby and mom are both doing Great and Wayne is chomping at the bit once again to get the RED #25 back on the track and is like all the other drivers within the top 5 in point is still well within striking distance of the Points Championship considering we still have the BIG DOUBLE Points 200 Lap Late Model Event on Oct 19th.
