Some interesting notes and backgrounds tonight:

Checking out the info on Pro Late Model driver Sheldon Creed we find that he drives for the Traxxas team and runs Lucas Oil Off Road Trucks and the SST Robbie Gordon Series.

Also Tyler Dippel who runs Dirt Modifieds in the Northeast is also running tonight in the Super Late Models in the number one car.

Alex Labbe was here last year for the World Series, but since then has become a complete different driver with several wins.

Ricardo Flores comes from Lima, Peru and will run the World Series in the Pro Late Model division. He’s running tonight as a teammate to Michael Lira.
