Jerrod Foley’s 04 SLM.
1:43
Illinois SLM driver Boris Jurkovic has had a busy weekend. He tested on Thursday and was “pretty good.”. On Friday he says they jus kept throwing stuff at it but what ever they did made it worse. Today they put the setup on the car back to where they unloaded and it seems to be much better.

Comment From Guest

Great to hear Buttons Campbell is so happy with his car. It’s his turn to get a good run down there and not wreck. Looks like he and the Little Buckaroo Bursley are putting their heads together!

Super Late Model Driver Travis Kittleson has been racing at SpeedFest for all seven years and is not discouraged by his current 23rd place ranking in the practice charts. He has not yet made a run on new tires. 
1:24
Comment From Guest

Would have been great to see Jonathan Martin in the 3rd Welch & Wilson Motorsports CRA car for this race. We will look for him in the days ahead and cheer on the other drivers. Thanks for the coverage … this is great! 

1:23
The Legends have completed their practice and the SuperTrucks are on the track for the first time today.

1:16
Tyler Roahrig’s team didn’t find speed in session #1 for the SLMs.
1:15
We also caught up with Tom Schuette. His team has made a few changes to the car, and he feels very confident after his last practice run. 
1:15
Derrick Griffin by his #4 SLM.
1:14
Bobby Measmer Jr. was ninth quick in that Super LM session in the Red Top Collector Car Auction #51, but team co-owner Bob Dillner tells us the speed charts are deceiving. He says they are still searching for the right balance with the car. 
1:13
We checked in with Erik Jones who said that his team made some changes to his car before the last practice session that he was not to happy with. They are going back their original setup, which he believes will work out great in tomorrow’s race. 
1:10
Wheaton, Illinois’ Eddie Hoffman tells us the Pro LM is near perfect, but he is struggling with a “tight in the center condition” with his Super LM. 
1:09
Yes, Derrick Griffin and Tyler Roahrig are teammates under the Welch & Wilson Motorsports banner. They are both planning to run the full CRA circuit in 2011. 
1:09

Right now the top five in Pro Late Model practice are David Ragan, Chase Elliott, Shane Sawyer, Austin Hill and Will Prance. 
11:14
Here are the recaps from the Drivers Meetings Pro Late Model Drivers Meeting:

The Pro Late Model race will be 150 laps with a break at lap 100. Cautions will not count. It will be a six tire race with four tires to be changed at the break and the two extras in case of a flat. Qualifying will be green white checkered with no warm up lap. To invert the cars a dice will be rolled twice (a one and a three rolled means the field invert is 4). If any problems are found in pre-qualifying tech the driver will lose one lap.

Champion Racing Association Drivers Meeting:

The CRA Super Series race will be a 200 lap race with a break at lap 100. Cautions will count. The teams are allowed 8 tires this weekend and tires are intended to be changed only at the break except in the case of a flat tire. Any tires to be changed on a yellow or red flag must be approved by the officials. All cars will get a warm up lap and the invert will be based on a draw. The race will have double file restarts.

11:12
Right now 13 Pro Late Models have been on the track. A few of them like Chase Elliott didn’t have a transponder on the car. 
11:11
