Driver intros are underway, we are almost ready for green.

 

4:25

Some notes about race procedures

  • The race will be 150 laps. Caution laps will count until lap 140. After lap 140, there must be 10 green laps. Those laps do not have to be in sucession.
  • There will be a “halftime break.” At lap 75, the cars will come to the chute and will have the opportunity to change two tires and make normal pit stop adjustments.
  • If a driver changes tires before or after the lap 75 break, they must put on a scuff.
  • Pit stops at the break will NOT be live. Driver’s keep their spot unless they are not finished with adjustments before the clock runs out.

Comment From crew chief#12 

good luck to #26 Bubba Pollard

 

4:06

The Lee Fields race will roll off somewhere around 5 CST, if i had to guess. The Mods are about to begin their feature, then it’s late model time.

3:42

The Sportsman race is running as we speak. Chad Robinson is leading Michael Sanford and Lee Renyolds.

 

3:41

Comment From KRB 

Did the Sportsman class already run their feature race?

 

3:23

Jerry Goff, Jr. goes wire-to-wire and wins the Bomber feature.

 

3:08

We are aware that some races were run prior to 2008, but do not have any official documents proving who won the events. If you have documents proving a driver won a race, email Elgin Traylor at [email protected].

 

3:06

Correct!

Comment From john 

johanna long and BP

 

3:06

The pit stops will take place on “The Chute.” (speed51.com photo)

 

 

3:02

Drivers agreed to hold the pit stops on the front stretch today. Mike Garvey posed the option of having the stops in plain view of everyone in light of the happenings of the last PLM race at Mobile.

The stops and halftime break will take place on “The Chute,” the area between the guardrail and infield.

 

2:56

Still looking for a correct answer.

 

2:56

Comment From scorer27 

BP & Elliott?

 

2:55

Sorry, Lenny, but Garvey hasn’t won it either.

 

2:55

Comment From Lenny 

Bubba Pollard and Mike Garvey

 

2:53

Close, but incorrect. Pollard has won three straight Lee Fields races. But Augie has never captured the flag.

 

2:53

Comment From scorer27 

BP & Augie?

 

2:50

Only two drivers have captured the checkers in the Lee Fields  Memorial. Anyone wanna take a stab at who those drivers are?

 

2:47

The track will be silent until the top of the hour. Bombers, Sportsman, Modifieds and a combined SuperStock/Truck race will run features before the Lee Fields 150 gets underway.
