3:14
The Mini Stock division has a bit of an IROC feel to it here at Waterford. Of the 15 cars currently on track, all of them are Fox-bodied Ford Mustang coupes. 
2:56
The Mini Stock feature will take place next and then the Modified Racing Series feature race will conclude the day.

When asked how many big races that he had won in his career, Vincent Esposito replied, “This is my first….and I’m enjoying the hell out of it!” 
2:28
Vincent Esposito in LM Victory Lane – “The leaders got together and I was like, “Wow! Holy Cow!” This car was hot today, it was a hunka, a hunka burning love!” 
2:26
There was a little bit of touring flavor to the Late Model feature. 2010 ACT Late Model Rookie of the Year Bradley Babb and Kyle DeSouza – who raced in the ACT Invitational at new Smyrna Speedway earlier this winter and will race on the PASS North tour in 2011, both ran in the feature today, but finished out of the money.

1:13
The Modified Racing Series will contest the final feature race of today, so there is still quite a bit of time until the green flag waves. We are going to take a walk through the pits to talk to a few of the drivers and teams, as well as to take photos that will appear in a Photo Gallery this week on the Speed51.com Facebook Feed page. So hang tight and we’ll be back online in a little while.

GO ROCCO!!!! 

1:06
Keith Rocco – “The car wasn’t 100% today, but I can’t say enough about Troyer racecars. Even when we’re off, we’re fast.” 
1:04
After numerous caution periods and one red flag that wasn’t officially a red flag period, the 61-lap SK Modified feature is in the books. Keith Rocco came back from mid-race contact with Ron Yuhas to win the race. Rob Janovic and Tom Abele also finished on the podium.

We are less than halfway into the SK Modified feature and Rob Janovic is back into the lead. Ron Yahas and Keith Rocco were battling for the lead and made contact – that knocked them both deep into the field. Yuhas had a flat tire soon afterwards and has been towed off the track. Neither competitor appeared to be very happy with each other after the incident.

The Modified Racing Series didn’t get much practice here this weekend. After the three-day weekend was reduced to two days because of poor weather on Friday, there was only one 30-minute practice session set for Saturday for the MRS machines. 
12:26
The Modified Racing Series has adopted a plus/minus system for setting their lineups this year. The system was developed by Tom Curley for the ACT Late Models and sets the field by the number of cars that a driver passes in his heat race, not where he or she finishes in their heat race.
