There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.

April 27, 2013

The Kentucky Fried Late Models saw Sam Epling jump out to a good lead with Keith Gentz and Scott Baker running just behind him.

Feature Winner Late Models - April 27, 2013
Racing was hot and heavy all through the pack when Scott Phillips slipped off the edge of the berm. As he came back up, he made contact with another car and ended up rolling over, ending up on his roof in the turn three back grasses. Phillips was shaken but was up and walking around after a spectacular flip. With ten in the books, it was still Epling, Gentz, Baker, and Kris Patterson, and Dan DeLong. DeLong tried to put a move on Baker and got loose, falling back several positions, moving Bry Sloan into the top five. Another caution grouped the field, allowing Baker to close in on the leader several times in the closing laps, almost over taking him with three to go. Baker got a good run coming in for the white flag and finally overtook Epling and went on to win a wild one over Epling, Scott Nieman, Dean Huizenga, Sloan, Bill Beardslee, Blaine Hendrick, Patterson, Jr., DeLong, and Gentz. Zack Olger took the B Main while heats fell to Gentz, Baker, and Sloan.
