Conneaut, OH (August 14, 2018): there are only three weeks of regular points racing before champions are crowned at Raceway 7, only three nights to prepare for the “September Shootout”, the season-ending extravaganza on September 15.
As the points edge closer to Championship night Darrell Bossard, a four-time winner this season, gets closer to his second Evergreen Lake Park RUSH Crate Late Model championship. His advantage over second-running Breyton Santee is now 110-points and he could succeed in clinching the title with a win. If he leaves with a 125 point lead after Friday, the title is his as 62 is the maximum available on any night of racing. Santee has an advantage of 43 markers over third-running Dave Airgood (June 15 winner) with Matt Latta, last week’s winner, fourth, only four points behind Airgood, and former champion Kyle Zimmerman fifth, yet another 38 points back.
