Joanides wins Super Late Model season opener at Irwindale
Nick Joanides won the season opener in the NASCAR Super Late Model division at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale on Saturday night.
The driver from Woodland Hills, the reigning Super Late Model champion at the track, overhauled his car after qualifying. In a way, he was a bit lucky. He qualified eighth, but an inverted start put him on the front row. He took the lead in the 100-lap race on the second lap and held on for the rest of the race.
