Some surprises in qualifying. Harrison Burton and Stephen Nasse both miss the top-30. I think Nasse is in on a provisional (Southern Super Series points).

Late Model Stock Car standout Josh Berry sixth.

Augie Grill has dominated in the Snowflake 100, but 46 laps to go when they get the restart. This will get interesting. Nasse's on the move. Pollard is third. Mason Diaz having a good run. Jackson Boone is as well.

What the heck was with that official telling Stephen Nasse he couldn't hug his nephew? Glad Stephen shoved him.

I see the sensitive types are out on Twitter bemoaning that this makes the race a joke. Actually it's the opposite. A marquee event without serious technical standards and inspection would be the joke. This is the definition of sporting credibility. The people who want a nice safe entertainment show where they always "know the ending" when the credits roll can find that in plenty of places.

I'm not big on pavement late model racing, but it's because the culture is one that seems to encourage the drivers to drive them like bumper cars.

Congrats to Braden. He also had a tough weekend, started near the back, and spun out late in the race. Plenty of Cinderella underdog glory there. And he was legal!

On the flip side, this is the only sport in the world where every rules violation, no matter how big or small, results in the death penalty.

Proudly so, I would argue. Plenty of other sports that aren't American professional team sports are also harsh about DQing and going much further in relitigating past results.

NASCAR spent decades trying to beat around the bush because "entertainment", and finally wised up.

Derby tech be like.... There were bird droppings on the hood of your car. Disqualified!

Absolutely ridiculous. The story should be the race, not the people in the tech room.
