We will have lots of post-race footage on Speed 51 Video tomorrow of the crazy East Vs. West Showdown here at Dixie Motor Speedway. We saw guys run out of fuel late in the race, bump-and-run moves for the lead, some verbal jabs thrown post-race and some real jabs thrown in the pit area, as well. We’ll have more on it all on Saturday on Speed 51 Video on Speed51.com

We’ve got a lot of work to do in the pits…we’ll have more reaction and results later on…for now, congrats to Terry Senneker, the winner tonight. Stay tuned for more. 
10:24
Terry Senneker has won the East Vs. West Showdowon tonight at Dixie as Steve Sauve slows on the last lap and falls to the last car on the track out of second. 
10:23
Senneker takes the white flag… 
10:23
10:23
GREEN FLAG: Senneker has opened up a two-carlength lead on Sauve at the start with four to go. 
10:23
Terry Senneker has been given the lead back. He’ll lead at the restart over Sauve, Jack, Cronenwett and Schroeder. 
10:22
PHOTO: Mike Luberda, Jr. voices his displeasure with the way this race is going with Dixie officials in the grandstands. 
10:21
Mike Luberda climbed from his car in the pit area and ran up to the official’s tower to voice his displeasure over this race. Photo to follow… 
10:18
The field will go red again to align the cars on the frontstretch. 
10:18
As the field runs under yellow, the #988 of Ron Allen has come to a stop between turns one and two. We’re going crazy over all this action here late in this one folks! 
10:17
YELLOW FLAG Lap 96: Sennker dives to the bottom of Varney, takes the lead off turn two, but going into turn three Varney clobbered the rear end of Senneker’s car. Senneker went for a half-spin, losing the lead as the yellow came out. 
10:16
5 to go: Senneker tries the high side again to no avail, but he’s right there on the leader Varney now. 
10:16
GREEN FLAG: Sauve got sideways trying to hold the bottom around Varney. That allowed Senneker to run the high side to the second spot and he’s now chasing down Varney with six to go. 
10:15
Officials have put Senneker back to third, moving Sauve up to second on the restart. 
10:15
GREEN FLAG/YELLOW FLAG: Terry Senneker took a peek under Varney as the green came out, but the officials did not like that. The field came back under yellow after a half-lap due to the jumped restart. 
10:14
One lap to green… 
10:14
Restart order: Varney, Sauve, Senneker, Jack, Allen, Cronenwett 
10:13
Luberda got re-fired as the field went yellow and was then subsequently stopped in turn four for a talking-to by the officials. 
10:12
RED FLAG: The field is being stopped under a red flag to sort out the restart order. 
10:11
YELLOW FLAG: Lap 93: Mike Luberda came out of the pits and once again his car stalled right at the start-finish line. Could that have been done to close up the gap and give Terry Senneker a shot at the win? We shall see… 
10:10
Terry Senneker is trying the outside lane around Jack and it works. Give third to Senneker as he goes for second on the high groove around Sauve and has it with seven to go 
10:10
10 laps to go: Verney leads by two carlengths as Sauve is second. Terry Senneker is pressuring Brent Jack for third. 
10:09
GREEN FLAG: Varney pushes up in one, allowing Sauve to poke a nose under him, but Varney holds strong. 
10:09
That leaves Jack Varney, Steve Sauve, Brenth Jack, Terry Senneker as your top four. 
10:08
YELLOW FLAG Lap 88: The leader Mike Luberda has slowed to a stop in turn one. We can’t confirm yet, but we’re wondering if these guys are starting to run low on fuel? 
10:07
GREEN FLAG: Luberda holds the lead over Varney. Sauve gets a nudge from Jack for the third spot, but can’t make the pass stick as Senneker lurks behind them. 
10:07
YELLOW FLAG: For what, we don’t know…likely Jack’s speedy restart. 
10:06
GREEN FLAG: Luberdaholds strong over Varney now, with Sauve third and Senneker fourth. Fifth place Brent Jack pitted under the last yellow and came back just as they went back to green and passed almost the entire field to get his spot back before the green flag came out. 
10:06
Carlson is getting pushed by a push truck into the pit area off turn two. It appears that his bid for a second-straight East Vs. West Shootout victory is done. 
10:04
YELLOW FLAG Lap 86: Second-place running Dakota Carlson has slowed to a stop off turn two. The yellow flies as Carlson tries to get rolling, but the #8 car again stops going into turn three. 
10:03
GREEN FLAG: Luberda clears Carlson by three as they go down the backstretch. 
10:03
One lap to green… 
10:02
While Luberda has been in command on the last few restarts, keep in mind…Dakota Carlson won this race last year on a late-race restart, so this race is far from over with 15 laps remaining. 
10:01
YELLOW FLAG: Lap 85: Andrew Hagen was spun in turn two to bring out the yellow with 15 laps remaining. 
9:59
Lap 80: Carlson is staying three carlengths behind Luberda up front. Varney has distanced himself from the rest of the pack in third, with Sauve, Jack and Senneker all battling for the fourth spot now. 
9:58
The front two have checked out a bit, but Verney, Sauve, Jack and Senneker now all have a four-car battle for the third spot. Varney still holds it, but the’re all criss-crossed behind him. 
9:58
GREEN FLAG: Carlson stayed close to Luberda, but Luberda still holds the lead by a carlength. 
9:57
YELLOW FLAG: Lap 75: Mike Root has spun off turn two. 
9:57
25 Laps to go: Luberda, Carlson, Varney, Sauve, Root, Jack 
9:56
GREEN FLAG: Luberda, Carlson and Varney stay close for a lap, but Luberda opens up a two-carlength lead to get us to 26 to go. 
9:56
One lap to green… 
9:54
The track crew has finished their cleanup in turn one and the engines have re-fired. 
9:46
Under this red flag , Eric Lee climbed from his #5 car and checked out the right-front of his racecar. THe scene was reminiscent of Sterling Marlin climbing from his car in the 2002 Daytona 500. In this situation, though, Lee did not actually touch his #5 car as far as we could tell. 
9:43
RED FLAG for cleanup 
9:42
This caution will require even more oil dry in turn one, so the field has gone to a red flag as the cleanup crew goes to work. 
9:42
YELLOW FLAG Lap 73: Rod Laney looped his #75 and hit the turn-one wall hard nose-first. Laney has climbed from his car and is okay. 
9:41
GREEN FLAG: Luberda is back in front over Carlson, as Carlson remains four carlengths back of the leader. 
9:40
Some significant oil dry was dropped all around the track after Felver’s car dumped it as his car went to the pits. The field is running half-speed hot laps around the track to work in the substance. 
9:34
This bunches the field back up with just 30 laps to go. Luberda leads Carlson, Varney, Lee, Sauve, Root, Jack, Senneker, Allen, Hagen, Cronenwett and Laney. Those are the only cars on the track at this moment. 
9:33
YELLOW FLAG Lap 71: Tim Felver’s #11 car slowed to a crawl in turn two. Felver took his car right to the pit area as the yellow flag flew. 
9:33
Lap 70: Luberda is quickly catching a big wad of lapped traffic, including Justin Schroeder, Tim Felver, Steve Cronenwett, Jr. and Andrew Hagen, who has apparently developed a problem in his #00. 
9:32
Lap 66: Scott Pemberton takes his car to the pits. 
9:32
Lap 65: Luberda is up still 10 carlengths on Carlson. Varney is 10 lengths back of Carlson and now has Eric Lee in his rear-view mirror. 
9:31
Lap 62: Mike Root jumped to the outside of Hagen off turn two, but Hagen moved up the track and almost put Root into the fence. Root earned the spot and took Terry Senneker along with him to eighth. 
9:31
Lap 60: The front three are spaced out extensively. The best battle on the track right now is for seventh, as Hagen is trying to hold off Mike Root and Terry Senneker. 
9:30
Lap 55: Luberda has a 10-carlength lead over Carlson. Varney is eight in back of Carlson in third. Fourth is Eric Lee, followed by Steve Sauve, Brent Jack and Andrew Hagen. 
9:28
Lap 51: off turn two, Carlson dove to the bottom of Varney and held the second spot to complete lap 52. 
9:28
GREEN FLAG: Luberda jumps to a three-carlength lead over Varney and Carlson, who are still nose-to-tail for second. 
9:27
One lap to green here on lap 50. 
9:26
Officials have sent both Root and Pemberton away and back into their restart order. Under this yellow, Tim Felver went on and off pit road for an adjustment. 
9:24
We’re still under caution as the officials have stopped Scott Pemberton’s and Mike Root’s cars in turn four and are conversing with them on the track. 
9:23
The scoreboard has reverted back to lap 50 now, as it once showed lap 52 on the previous caution. We’re halway now apparently in this event. 
9:22
GREEN FLAG/YELLOW FLAG: Luberda slipped a little on the restart, allowing Varney to stay close, but the yellow immedialtely flew…for what, we can’t tell.. 
9:21
Top-12 running order: 1) Luberda 2) Varney 3) Carlson 4) Lee 5) Sauve 6) Needles 7) Jack 8) Hagen 9) Allen 10) Senneker 11) Root 12) Felver 
9:18
YELLOW FLAG Lap 52: Scott Pemberton has looped his P51 car off turn three. 
9:18
HALFWAY LAP 50: Luberda has an eight carlength lead over Varney, who has a mirror full of Carlson for second. Eric Lee runs fourth, with Sauve, Needles, Brent and Hagen behind them. 
9:17
The top three, Luberda, Varney and Carlson all run nose-to-tail up front. 
9:16
Lap 44: Luberda jumps to the bottom of Varney and they ride door-to-door across the stripe. Off turn two, however, give Luberda the lead on the bottom to complete lap 45. 
9:16
Just before the field went back to green the most recent time, Terry Senneker did make it back on track. Tim Ryan, however, has pulled into the infield and has climbed from his car and out of the race. 
9:15
Lap 40: Jack Varney has his hands full of Mike Luberda, Jr. for the lead. Luberda pokes his nose under Varney into each corner, but Varney holds tough on the outside for the time being. 
9:14
Dakota Carlson is next to pursue Lee, poking a nose under the #5 car. They’re side-by-side off turn two on lap 36 as Carlson takes the spot off turn four. 
9:14
GREEN FLAG: Varney has opened up a three-carlength lead, but behind him Mike Luberda, Jr. has passed Eric Lee for second on lap 34. 
9:11
Running order: 1) Varney 2) Lee 3) Luberda 4) Carlson 5) Sauve 6) Brent 7) Needles 8) Hagen 9) Allen 10) Pemberton 
9:10
Officials have given Steve Sauve his position back and is now in his fifth spot. Mike Root is at the rear of the field for his role in the incident. 
9:09
Under this caution, Terry Senneker has taken his #37 to the pit area. As the field went to caution, Senneker’s car slowed on the frontstretch with perhap a transmission or rear end problem. Senneker got back rolling, but has not yet appeared from the pits. 
9:08
YELLOW FLAG Lap 33. Mike Root and Steve Sauve made contact between turns three and four. Both cars went into the spin cycle, but did not appear to make any contact with anyone or anything beyond the initial contact that sent them around. 
9:07
Lap 30: Dakota Carlson has jumped to the bottom of Steve Sauve and has taken the fourth spot back. Behind him, Mike Root has made a move by Brent Jack for sixth. 
9:06
Lap 27: Give the third spot to Luberda with a power move by Sauve on the low side into turn three. Sauve now runs fourth with Carlson in fifth. Brenth Jack is sixth, followed by Mike Root, Terry Senneker and Steve Needles. 
9:05
Lap 25: Varney leads by three carlengths over Lee. Sauve is five carlengths behind Lee in third and has a mirror full of Luberda for the spot. 
9:04
Lap 21: Carlson jumps to the bottom of Sauve for third, but gets crossed up in doing so. Carlson checked up on the bottom groove and has fallen from fourth back to seventh. 
9:04
In two laps since the restart, Mike Luberda, Jr. has been tryin gto make the outside groove work. He’s now on the outside of Carlson for fourth and is making it stick, but not yet enough to make the pass. 
9:03
GREEN FLAG: Varney holds strong on the single-file restart on lap 17, 
9:02

9:01
8:59
Cleanup is continuing down in turn one. 
8:58
Running order of cars on the track at lap 17: 1) Jack Varney 2) Eric Lee 3) Steve Sauve 4) Dakota Carlson 5) Mike Luberda, Jr. 6) Brent Jack 7) Mike Root 8) Terry Senneker 9) Justin Schroeder 10) Steve Needles 11) Andrew Hagen 12) Ron Allen 13) Scott Pemberton 14) Tim Felver 15) Todd Jackson 16) Steve Cronenwett, Jr. 17) Rod Laney 18) Tim Ryan. 
8:54
Cleanup continues in turn-one. Yellow flag laps do not count in this 100-lap feature. 
8:52
YELLOW FLAG: Lap 17: The #22 of Jay Sommers has spun in turn one and slammed the outside retaining wall driver-side first. 
8:51
Lap 14: Steve Sauve is pressuring Lee for the second-spot with Carlson right on his bumper. Lee is able to keep Sauve pinched down enough to not allow Sauve to get a run off the corner. 
8:50
The top-four, Varney, Lee, Sauve and Carlson are all single file, separated only by a carlength between each. 
8:49
Lap 8: Dakota Carlson has moved to the inside of Mike Luberda and taken the fourth spot. 
8:49
Lap 5: It’s Varney, Lee, Sauve, Luberda, Carlson, Brent Jack and Mike Root. 
8:48
Three laps in and there’s a side-by-side battle for fourth between Mike Luberda, Jr. on the inside and Justin Schroeder on the outside. Give Luberda the spot. 
8:47
GREEN FLAG: We’re under way here at Dixie. Jack Varney has taken the lead on the outside groove, bringing Steve Sauve wth him, but Sauve can’t pass Lee for the second spot as they click off the first lap. 
8:47

The drivers are being introduced as we speak. 
8:36
The Outlaw Super Late Models are lining up on the frontstretch as we speak. We’ll be going green in just a few minutes! 
8:31
PHOTO: Late Model Digest’s (and all around good guy) Jim Carson snapped this photo of Todd Jackson, driver of the #40x car here tonight. Super Late Model fans in the Southeast may recognize the shirt and hat that Jackson’s wearing at Dixie. Jackson’s sporting one of two-time Snowball Derby Champion Augie Gril’s shirts and hats. Strange to see an Augie Grill fan in the Upper Midwest? Perhaps, but it all make sense. Jackson turned wrenches on Jerry Artuso’s Super Late Model several years ago when Artuso was driving a car built by Grand American Race Cars (GARC) of Dolomite, Alabama, which is owned by Augie’s father Frankie Grill. A strange tie-in, but a tie-in nonetheless.

8:15

Comment From bill adkins 

great im voting for felver hows it goin hollywood 

8:05
You’re not the only one thinking Felver will have a shot to win tonight. A quick poll of the pit area found Felver’s name to be the one most mentioned as a favorite. Felver’s a good shoe to begin with, but his #11 car is only considered #11 because that’s the number that most resembles the “H” on his door. That “H” stands for Howe Racing Products & Chassis of Beaverton, Michigan. Howe is synonymous with Super Late Model success in this part of the country, and Felver’s car is actually a development vehicle for Howe.The car is a brand new 2012 prototype Outlaw SLM chassis. While the talk in the pits is that the car is 100% within the rules, it has several cutting-edge components that the Howe folks hope will be the wave of the future of this type of racing.
7:58
The local division heats are ongoing. We should be going green for the Super Late Models within the hour. 
7:58
Thanks for following along!

During this break, the Outlaw Super Late Models had a re-draw for their starting positions. The roll of the dice was a 10, meaning Eric Lee will start on the pole. Fast timer Steve Needles will start from position #10. 
7:30
The first weekly division heat race is currently lining up on the pit access road.

PHOTO: Speed51.com partner site SpeedEats.com’s Matthew Dillner loves short track racing in the Midwest. No, MD is not here at Dixie tonight, but undoubtedly he’d love the short track action – but he’d probably love the food even more. Tonight, Duke enjoyed a special Michigan bratwurst with sauerkraut just for ol’ MD tonight. 
7:30
7:06
We’re just about a half hour away from the start of heat races and features. Track PR guru and announcer Matt Prieur has told us that the plan is to go green with the Super Late Model feature somewhere around 8:45.While we have some time, we have to express our gratitude to Prieur and the staff of Dixie Motor Speedway for providing us with free drinks and popcorn so far here tonight, as well as a nice spot to check out the races. Thanks also to the staff at Angola Motor Speedway who showed Duke around yesterday in his first-ever visit to that track.
6:52
We talked with Scott after last night’s disappointing run at Angola and he said he would not be here tonight. He’ll be at Baer Field Speedway (IN) tomorrow night with his Outlaw Super Late Model, instead. 
6:52
Comment From Stephen Barker 

Hantz’s car must have been too banged up from last night’s race to race tonight 

6:39
Some of the local, support divisions are on track for their time trials as we speak. Feature events are scheduled to kick off in less than an hour. There will be a few local division heat races before features kick off. 
6:24
There are now officially two scratches from tonight’s race. We already mentioned Ken O’Connor having withdrawn after practice, but now ad Brad Birr to that list. Both drivers suffered engine failures before qualifying.

Root was involved in an opening-start crash last night in the Stan Perry Memorial 110 at Angola Motor Speedway. The race had plenty of carnage and a last-lap bump-and-run to the checkered flag. If you haven’t read about the race or seen the video of the crazy last four laps yet, check it out here…
