NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division Week 14 Round Up

Drivers that got to race in NeSmith Performance Parts Street Stock Division Presented By AR Bodies Week 14 competition made the best of it in the points chase.  David Windham of Florala, AL took over sole possession of first place in the point standings, while Mike Lane of Pace, FL used his ninth win of the season to move up to the second spot.

 

There were six races on the NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division Week 14 schedule, but Mother Nature washed out four of them, including a pair of $1,000-to-win races sanctioned by the Mississippi Street Stock Series.  The first rainout of the week was the $1,000-to-win Dixie 50 on Friday night at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS co-sanctioned by the MSSS.

 

On Saturday night, rain washed out the $1,000-to-win $100-to-start NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division/MSSS co-sanctioned race at St. Tammany Raceway in Lacombe, LA.  NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division Week 14 Saturday night events at Jackson Motor Speedway in Jackson, MS and at Poplar Bluff Speedway in Poplar Bluff, MO were also rained out.

 

Windham used a sixth-place finish on Saturday night at Southern Raceway in Milton, FL to take over sole possession of the NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division point lead driving the Florala Pharmacy Chevrolet.  Windham has 613 points after one win, ten top five finishes and 13 top ten finishes in 16 races over 14 weeks of competition.

 

Now that Windham has reached the 14 week mark of his season be will now begin to net points by trying to replace the lowest weekly point total among his best 14 with a higher one.  The lowest weekly total among Windham’s 14 is a 34.  A 50-point win would net Windham 16 points to be added to his season total.

 

Lane drove the Lane’s Vinyl Siding Chevrolet to his series-leading ninth win of the season on Saturday night at Southern Raceway.  That moved Lane up to the second spot in the NeSmith/AR Bodies Street Stock Division standings with 574 points after nine wins, 13 top five finishes and 15 top ten finishes in 16 races over 13 weeks.  Lane still has one more week to earn full points.
