Thirkettle wins Super Late Model Showdown race

It was probably the easiest $10,000 Travis Thirkettle ever won. It was definitely the shortest race he's ever won.
The NASCAR Super Late Model portion of the Toyota All-Star Showdown was cut down to 15 laps. It was scheduled for 150 and ended at 12:15 a.m., way past the normal curfew for the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale.
And even though 15 laps were officially recorded, only about three were actually run. Thirkettle might have been the most disappointed driver at the track despite coming out the winner. He had a brand new car and said he was looking forward to actually getting a chance to race it.
The Super Late Model race also ended a frustrating night for Ron Hornaday Jr. The three-time NASCAR Truck Series champions was booed in the Camping World Series race after he and race leader Brian Ickler crashed. He ended his night with two tires on top of another car in the turn 2 grass during the Super Late Model race.

  1. Hi Haddock,

    I'm afraid to tell my dad about your blog. I will have to walk him through signing on daily. He mentions that he misses you from the paper.
