The fans came for smashes and crashes, and they weren’t disappointed as Crystal Matteson from Octane Beauty Studio presented Maximum Destruction at Auto City on Saturday, August 31st. They were also treated to some great racing with the third leg of the Triple Crown Series for the Pro Late Models.
Norm Davis continued his success at Auto City, setting fast time for thePro Lates with a 16.44. The 60-lap main event got off to a rough start. A6-car pileup in turn 1 knocked out a couple cars and caused some damage on the others. Clean up was quick, and when the race resumed Ed Doutre Jr. Took the lead. Three laps later Joe Hodgeson Jr. Took over the top spot and held it until lap 15. Then it was Blake Childers who paced the field until lap 25, when Davis took command and pulled away, taking the win and claiming a clean sweep in the Triple Crown Series. Childers held on to second, Curt Genow took third, Hodgeson claimed fourth and Doutre came home in fifth.
