No, there was some confusion on pit road and some drivers went out on the pace laps of the first race when they were supposed to be in the second. They tripped the transponder loop and were included on the final results that were provided to us by officials.

Comment From Beth Mitchell 

Go Trey Mitchell racing-the great state of Texas is pulling for you! 

12:54
The #39 of Kenzie Ruston has failed weight twice, and the crew has pulled the car out of line to fix it. 
12:53
ASA Midwest Time Trials are set to begin in just a few minutes, at 1:00 p.m. CST. 
12:52
Curt Tillman’s #40 front wheels are too wide. He has to bring them in. 
12:43
Tim Olson, ASA President, just tripped over one of the templates in tech. Officials are checking to see if they are bent. 
12:40
Ross Kenseth currently sits back in the inspection line after adjustments have been made by the crew to correct the tread with on the front end. Ross tells 51 that the width was just barely over the legal width. Not even 1 inch. 
12:37
Another issue on Wimmer’s car. The #25 is too light, and the team is adding fuel to fix it.
12:35
Scott Wimmer is also having major template issues. ASA officials are making the team fix the issue right now. 
12:28
Notes from ASA Midwest Tour tech line

Bubba Pollard, Brandon Hill and David Stremme all had problems fitting the templates. Pollard had to physically beat on the car to get the #26 to fit the templates. Hill’s and Stremme’s issues were less serious and were corrected in line.

Ross Kenseth’s right front tire had to be changed due to illegal tread width. Butch Miller is coordinating how to fix the issue.

Even though his day isn’t going as well as he would’ve liked so far, hear Rusty Wallace’s thoughts on his car yesterday and his excitement for competing in this event in this Speed 51 Video shot yesterday across the street at Paulie’s Pub before our radio show.

11:34
Comment From Wheatfield Ind. 

looking at the names of the entry list I think its safe to say that we are seeing a changing of the guard in motor sports here in the states. Great to see second and third generation drivers take up the sport. 

11:33
Comment From STN Steve 

Gotta give a shout out to Jerry Sharp, top 10 in final ASA Midwest practice. 99.9% of the people up there have never heard of him. Works for Boris Jurkovic and has only driven 1 time this year at Illiana Speedway a few weeks ago. 

11:33
A faulty oil pump has been deemed the culprit for Wallace’s Engine problems and in turn forced the Rusty Wallace Racing team to swap motors. 
11:32
The Truck series just wrapped up their practice session, and the Big 8 cars head out for their final session.

11:23
Butch has been helping Ross a few times this year. The first time was in the PASS South event at Wake County Speedway (NC) a few weeks ago. Butch has also been helping a PASS North competitor this year, so he is only able to help out Ross when his schedule allows, like today. 
11:23

Is Butch Miller just helping out Kenseth or is he working for them now?

One of the most anticipated short track events of the season is quickly approaching. You won’t want to miss the fourth-annual Rowdy 251 at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan on Tuesday, June 19th. NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch will be back to defend his victories in the last two “Rowdy” events, but an all-star cast of ARCA/CRA Super Series regulars, local favorites and short track gladiators from throughout the country will be out to take the title from him.

Tickets are still available for the Rowdy 251 and can be purchased in advance via the Berlin Raceway online box office at www.berlinraceway.com.

Big 8 Series Notes

Ryan Carlson was not able to get back on track late in the last practice. Carlson was in line for practice and the officials let a select number of cars out on track after the yellow flag. Not long after the yellow, the checkers were thrown and Carlson didn’t get back out.

Gregg Pawleski said that the tire situation has been confusing. He said he was told that teams would be required to purchase tires here at The Mile, but other teams have brought tires from their home track. Pawleski also said that his car has regressed from yesterday’s session.

Rob Braun’s interesting giraffe-like paint scheme was desgined by his daughter. Braun changed the camber in his car, and it seems to have made the machine better.

It is gorgeous. For those coming to the track though, a light jacket might be necessary. The temps are cooler today and a light breeze makes for slight chill in the air.
