Miller Looking For A Change In His Fortunes

Tour visits Ace Friday, Caraway Saturday

After finishing in the top 10 at the season-opening race at Concord Speedway, most drivers would be pretty happy heading into this weekend’s Lightnin’ Fast 150 at Ace Speedway but then again, L.W. Miller (No. 36 John Baker Plumbing & Utilities Pontiac) isn’t like most drivers.

Miller hopes his luck will change this Friday when the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour returns to Ace Speedway, where the Dushore, Penn., native scored his last win on the Tour at this event in 2008. (CLICK HERE FOR RACE EVENT PAGE)

“I love racing at Ace Speedway,” said Miller. “It is a track that has been around a long time but Greg (Davis) and his staff have done a great job of keeping it up and we always seem to run well there.”

George Brunnhoelzl III Steals the Show in Southern Mod Opener at Concord Speedway

After Starting From The Back, Third-Generation Driver Rockets Up to Third-Place Finish

Concord, NC — Bad luck at the track is something every driver wishes they could escape, but it is an inevitable reality that strikes some when they least expect it.  Sometimes, though, if struck early enough in a weekend, a driver and team can overcome the obstacles thrown their direction and turn their day from junk to gold.

George Brunnhoelzl III knows exactly what that feels like, as the third-generation racer entered the 2009 NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour season opener at Concord Speedway (NC) Saturday.  After a few laps of practice, Brunnhoelzl’s car experienced a part failure, forcing the team to miss qualifying and the autograph session while they changed the engine.  After buttoning it up just before the race started, Brunnhoelzl turned his bad luck around by flying through the field from the back to finish third at the checkered flag.

Rowe, Goodson capture PASS South Lid Lifters at Dillon

Turner Maine’s Ben Rowe and his team  made the long tow to Dillon Motor Speedway worth their while Saturday afternoon as Rowe set fast time and  won the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Carolina Clash for super late models .  Rowe started fifth after the top ten time trialers re- drew for starting positions, and the four time PASS North champion quickly powered his way to the front.  Rowe took the lead from 2008 PASS South champ Alex Haase on lap twenty-two and despite the best efforts of Justin Wakefield on every double file restart,  Rowe cruised to a convincing victory. Wakefield had to settle for second and young Ryan Blaney came from the back of the field to finish third.  Jeff Fultz and Spencer Wauters rounded out the top five.

The South Carolina Clash marked the inaugural appearance of the PASS Late Model Trucks, and Hal Goodson goes in the record book as the first race winner in the new touring series. Grant Davidson chased Goodson to the checkers with Joe Heigl third.

Andrew Durand Changes Over to NGB body & 602 Spec Engine in Chase for 2009 Ltd. Late Model Championship at Stafford

Stafford Springs, CT — Over the past four seasons at Stafford Motor Speedway, Andrew Durand has won a total of 18 Limited Late Model feature events, putting him at the top of the all-time winners list. As the 2009 season approaches, Durand and his #43 RaD Automachine team will make a switch over to the new Limited Late Model 602 spec engine package. Durand will also change his car over to the new Mid American NGB Body style with the New Era wing. Durand is confident that he and his team can find the same success with their new package as they have had the last four seasons.

“We’re pretty confident that we can still win races,” said Durand. “It’s not all motor that wins races, you have to have the car handling good. Our spec engine looks good on the dyno, we haven’t had any problems with it, and we think we can go out this year and win races with it. It might not have the top end down the straightaway, but you will still get into the corner the same and I think it will be better getting off the corner because you can put the gas to the floor quicker and get the car hooked up faster than with our regular motor.”

Eye for An Eye

I don’t get mad, I get even! I know some folks who live that way, are you one of them? We want the right to get back at those who harm us. We want to see them get what we think they deserve. Many times we want to be the one inflicting the justice. What do you think Christ would say? Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Getting even, claiming our rights, making sure we are treated fairly are all things each one of us expect. Our country was built on the premise that we each have certain unalienable rights. When we are mistreated or taken advantage of we want justice.
