In the Quandel Concrete Modifieds, there have been three races with three different winners. Craig Von Dohren was the opening night winner with Duane Howard winning the MITM race and last week saw Mike Gular return to victory lane after almost two years. Von Dohren currently leads the way in the race for the championship over Gular, Jeff Strunk, Louden Reimert and Rick Laubach.

Last week’s Crate 602 Sportsman winner Jordan Henn is the driver on top of the standings chasing the USS Achey Crate 602 Sportsman title. Two-time winner in 2023 Logan Watt sits just five points back followed by Brandon Edgar, Talan Carter and Nick Desantis.

On the strength of three runner-up finishes so far in 2023, Chuck Fayash is the points leader going into this Friday night in the Red White and Blue Autos Roadrunner championship chase. Fayash has been a model of consistency and will be looking to get that first win on Friday night.

2023’s newest division is the Big Creek Concrete Crate Rookies, so far this season we have had three races with three different winners in the rookie class. Bryce Bashore, Jax Yohn and Brennan Chapman have all visited victory lane so far. You can see the progress the rookie drivers make each week as they start their racing careers.
