Early in tonight’s Super Late Model race, head tech inspector Ricky Brooks was injured after being struck under a caution flag period. Initial reports from EMT’s and track officials were that Brooks suffered a broken leg. No further updates are available at this time, but Speed51.com will have updates on Brooks’ condition as they are available.

“I had just put on a new set of tires and I was out there warming them up,” explained Cornelius after the race about the incident. “Gas-throttle action, back and forth. In turn three I had it in third gear and it bit, spun and threw it sideways down off the banking. Ricky was standing right beside the track. I didn’t know who it was at first. It shook me up and I kept asking if he was alright and they wouldn’t tell me until they put him on the stretcher. I felt terrible.”

11:30

On lap 67 of tonight’s JEGS Governor’s Cup 200, Stephen Nasse and Johnny VanDoorn made contact while battling for the lead. Nasse’s car spun and hit the outside wall in turn and suffered heavy rear-end damage. He was done for the night. VanDoorn continued on for a few laps, but the damage from the incident eventually brought his night to an early end as well. At the lap 100 competition caution, VanDoorn’s car sat on pit road when Nasse and several crew members went into the VanDoorn pit and a melee ensued. After some pushing, shoving and a few fists were thrown, cooler heads eventually prevailed.

Here’s what both had to say after the incident.

Stephen Nasse: “First when we had the red flag and then the restart, we both kind of slid off of turn four. I thought there was oil out there or something. He got into me a little bit then too and I let it go. Then the next one, going into turn one, the guy drives in five car lengths too deep and drives me up the track and wrecks me into the wall. There were people standing in the corner and they got video of it. They showed me and it’s obvious. If I wasn’t there, he would’ve wrecked the wall himself. I’m definitely not happy about it. I guarantee you after the race I’m going to have a talk with Johnny VanDoorn. He’s a good racecar driver and we were buddies before this race, but that was ridiculous. That was a rookie move. That’s uncalled for.”

VanDoorn: “I got a good run on him going down the front stretch on the restart when he spun his tires. We went down in there and I tried hugging the bottom as low as I could. He came down and got me in the right-front a little bit, just like he got Augie earlier in the race. I don’t think he was trying to do it on purpose, but when he pinched me down going in, I got up into him and I couldn’t get off of him. I had no intention of hitting him. It was totally unintentional and just a racing deal. It was too early, but I guess that’s just the way it is. They’re obviously pissed off about it.”

Nasse and VanDoorn will both be in competition next weekend at the All American 400 Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco event at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville (TN) next weekend.

The 22 of Dusty Cornelius has also been penalized, according to officials, for the same reason as Scofield. His car remains in the impound line for the time being.

 

5:56

The 07 of Scofield has withdrawn from the event, according to track officials. He was being penalized to the rear of the field at the start because his crew went to the car after qualifying. It was stated in the drivers meeting that no crew members could go to the car after the car made a qualifying attempt. According to track officials, Scofield’s crew did so and instead of taking the penalty, Scofield has taken the car outside of the track and has gone to the trailer.

Bubba Pollard proved that he can go fast for two laps, but can he make the speed last 200?

“I think so,” Pollard told 51 after qualifying. “Since (the Blizzard Series and Southern Super Series race at) Pensacola, we’ve been trying some stuff that has really been working at every track we’ve been to except Winchester. Winchester is just a different deal than anywhere else we run. The stuff we’ve been working on works on tracks like here and Pensacola. I think we’ll be good tonight.”

Jeff Choquette is making his first laps since Thursday in his No. 64 Super Late Model. He made just a couple laps around New Smyrna Speedway then before Frank Kreyer’s hard crash and fire in turn two.

Both the Super Late Model and Modified races are impound events.

This is an eight tire race for the Super Late Models. Cars have the four tires on the car at the start and four new tires in the pits. There will be a break at halfway, but only two crew members per car will be allowed over the wall to fuel the cars. No tires can be changed nor adjustments can be made at the break. The four tires in the pits can be changed at any other point in the race. The penalty for an unapproved tire change is a five laps.
