“The car was just flawless all night long. I thought for sure we would’ve had a great fight on our hands with the 61 car (Johnny VanDoorn)” Stated the Birmingham, Alabama driver in Victory Lane. “When I saw him go high and slow down, I knew I just had to keep running my line and we’d be alright.” He added.

Practice is Now Complete for the Outlaw Super Late Models here at Toledo Speedway. Complete Practice Session #2 Results will be posted shortly.The support divisions of Sportsmen, Street Stocks, and Figure 8s will now Practice one final time before Qualifying begins at 3:00p.m.

The Figure 8s will draw for their starting positions while the Street Stocks will hit the track first for Qualifying followed by the Sportsmen.

Then at approximately 3:30p.m., it’s time for Pass Time USA Qualifiyng for the 23rd running of the Glass City 200 Presented by Great Lakes Helicopters.

2:06
Practice has been extended again due to the continuing cold temperatures. ARCA Track Officials are allowing extra time for the teams to get the tires and fluids up to core temperature before turning them loose for each group.
2:04
In addition to that, the Wedge Bodies featured on an Outlaw Super Late Model allow for much more downforce than a Template Body, resulting in faster speeds.By comparison, the Overall Outlaw Super Late Model Track Record was set by Derrick Griffin back on April 17th, 2010 as he turned a 14.809.

The CRA Super Series Track Record was set by Johnny VanDoorn back on August 14th, 2009 as he went around the 1/2 mile at a 15.437.

Over a 1/2 second difference in times.

2:01
Comment From Rob Liedel 

The Outlaw cars up here have more horsepower than most of the template cars down south. Even more than the CRA cars.

2:01
In all total, Five States and One Canadian Provence are represented today with the bulk of the drivers coming from the neighboring state to the north, Michigan. In addition, Ohio, Indiana, Alabama, and North Carolina represent the five states while the lone Canadian in the field is Don. St. Denis.
1:58
For those Fans and Former Officials who remember the now defunct ICEMAN Super Car Series that ran from 1989-2001, a small reunion of sorts has unknowingly converged this weekend: Former competitors from the old series in the field includes: Dennis Strickland, Tim Felver, Harold Fair Jr., Steve Sauve, Ron Allen, Don St. Denis, George Rangel, and Rick Sheppard.
