Williams Grove was looking racier than usual tonight, and now a big wild card has been thrown in, as a brief rain shower fell during the B-Main. Now under rain delay, but it seems like they'll be able to resume. How it changes the track might be interesting.
Jacob Allen nearly won his second straight race in PA, leading the entire distance until a late caution set up a GWC finish. Something either broke or he ran out of gas, and Brent Marks took advantage to take the win. Heartbreak for Allen returns after his recent hot streak.
Carson Macedo crossed the line in second and would have taken the points lead from Sweet, but was light at the scales. Lots of chaos at the end of this one.

Christopher Bell, Alex Bowman, and some late model driver named Kyle Larson in the field with the Outlaws and a few Posse and ASCoC drivers at Bridgeport. Track was racey but dry for the heats, not sure how much they will rework for the feature.
The racing in the heats was better than usual, but with it already taking rubber and eating tires in 8 laps, the feature would not have been good. Now they're doing some kind of heavy watering, but I'm not sure whether that works with the worn surface they have. We'll see, should be interesting.
Fantastic main event. Larson and Haudenschild go back and forth for the lead several times. Larson had the point after a caution with 4 to go, but Haudenschild took it back. Lots of movers throughout the field.
A phenomenal three way battle at the Outlaws' awaited return to Atomic Speedway. Sheldon wins another. After being passed by Jacob Allen, he regained momentum on the cushion and took the lead back. Logan Schuchart nipped his Shark teammate for second in the final corner.
Haudenschild and Allen have made big steps forward this year.

Another absolute thriller. Sprint cars are king. Holy crap some of those sliders between Haudenschild, Schuchart, and Gravel. Larson may have taken the win prior to the caution and GWC. Suddenly Sheldon is second in points and looking like a true title contender.
Macedo rebounds from recent struggles and wins at the bull ring at River Cities, ND, after passing Schuchart for the lead. Schuchart then flipped after getting out of shape on a restart, but was able to repair and make it back to a sixth place finish. Kasey Kahne had his best run of the year, hanging in the top five for most of the race, before fading to 8th.
