So far in the J&R Excavating Super Late Models it’s been a pair of youngsters dominating the action as Tyler Carpenter and Michael Lake have each picked up wins. A strong field of 2 Brothers AMRA Modifieds have shown to be quite competitive as Ischua, NY’s Rich Michael and 3rd generation racer Daniel Hill have each tallied a win among the open wheelers. A pair of Pennsylvania aces have found a home in the Mountain State as Michael ‘Mad Dog’ Duritsky and defending champion Kyle Lukon have secured hard earned trips to victory lane. ‘Dynamite’ Danny Thomas has dominated the competition in the early going in the Sigler Fabrication EDGE Hotmods presented by Poske Performance Parts. A highly competitive Jenkins Auto Parts Modlite Division has seen first time winner Sam Richards and 2016 track Champion Ryan Saffell notch wins in the early going. Kevin Criswell and perennial winner Bill Tennant have swapped checkered linen in the Sport Compacts first two mains of the season. Keith Powell has blistered the Gear 2 Graphics MWRA Junior division by going 2 for 2 so far. In the Senior MWRA division a steady Gage Stalder and smooth Ryan Hare have been the class of the field so far in the early season in the Youth League of Auto Racing.
