Another win for Larson. Hey look at Stenhouse, his results are improving on the dirt side.


I think the track at the Gateway dome is too small for the late models (though it's certainly a show) but perfect for midgets.

Larson is dominating the midget races this year. I watched him win in Indy earlier this year and at Ventura Ca Turkey weekend. He makes it look so easy.

My nominee for the best 2019 victory winner's circle late model interview

We just won the Gateway Nationals, that's the biggest thing I will probably ever do.

Enough to win you over on late models? The race itself was a wreck fest, which is kinda unavoidable when the track is that small and rough. But that Carpenter kid outlasted all of the big money teams and it was a heck of a finish and story.

There was also this:


Over $125,000 of the $2.2 million amount was raised, but yesterday an update was posted that the little girl received her treatment, perhaps as a result of public pressure from the campaign.

Amazing.

As much as I value traditional racing, I agree with moving the lapped cars to the tail.

They are also trying to incentivize winning the heat races with that lineup change. In USAC the feature lineups have been based entirely on time trials, leading some to complain that the heat races don't really matter. This seems to be an incremental change that addresses that partially without changing the whole format.
