Nasse thought Benjamin jumped the start thinking they would throw the caution out thinking Benjamin jumped the start. Thinking that Benjamin was ahead, he didn’t get on the gas because the caution would come back out. But it didn’t and he was passed by several cars.

Nasse is finally dropping back, and will line up 7th.
10:41
Race control has reiterated they do not believe Benjamin jumped the restart, that Nasse slowed down in Turn Three and Four right when the green was being waved. As such, Benjamin is, in the eyes of the officials, the leader. Nasse, meanwhile, remains leading the pack, obviously unconvinced.

Nasse continues to lead the pack under this restart, but we believe that Nasse is not the leader. He was running 7th at the time of the caution. We see race control trying to reach Nasse’s crew. 
10:37
Nasse may be equally displeased with race control, waving his hand at the flag stand to indicate he is not clear as to why the restart was not waved off or Benjamin was black flagged. 
10:37
Wallace is on pit road and parked it for the night. 
10:36

“Old School” is the approach the Southern Super Series is taking in their debut season of 2013. The 16-race slate brings together five racetracks in four different states and will include such legendary races as the World Crown 300 and the All American 400. Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway and Montgomery Motor Speedway, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway, Georgia’s Gresham Motorsports Park and Tennessee’s Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville make up the facilities that some of the best Super Late Model racers will compete on with the series this coming year.

The inaugural season’s opener comes on Saturday, April 6th at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville. For more details on this event visit www.southernsuperseries.com and http://www.fairgroundsspeedwaynashville.com/

For American stock car racing fans, the Daytona 500 is the biggest event on their calendar. As the Great American Race is upon us, one event many Midwest short track racers considered “their 2012 Daytona 500” was held at the Milwaukee Mile last June. Over 12,000 spectators turned out on a warm Tuesday night to witness third-generation Wisconsin racer Travis Sauter beat several NASCAR stars – in a field of 71 super late model racers – to score a popular victory in the 150-lap Midwest Tour super late model race at the historic Milwaukee Mile.

This summer, the highly-anticipated event returns to the Milwaukee Mile with the ARCA Midwest Tour and moves to the second Monday and Tuesday in July. Event organizers, building on the success of last year, are adding a Monday night concert featuring the heritage Southern rock band 38 Special.

Tickets for the July 8-9, 2013 “ARCA Fest” go on sale Friday, February 22nd at 10:00 a.m. Central Time online at www.ARCAfest.com

For American stock car racing fans, the Daytona 500 is the biggest event on their calendar. As the Great American Race is upon us, one event many Midwest short track racers considered “their 2012 Daytona 500” was held at the Milwaukee Mile last June. Over 12,000 spectators turned out on a warm Tuesday night to witness third-generation Wisconsin racer Travis Sauter beat several NASCAR stars – in a field of 71 super late model racers – to score a popular victory in the 150-lap Midwest Tour super late model race at the historic Milwaukee Mile.

This summer, the highly-anticipated event returns to the Milwaukee Mile with the ARCA Midwest Tour and moves to the second Monday and Tuesday in July. Event organizers, building on the success of last year, are adding a Monday night concert featuring the heritage Southern rock band 38 Special.

Tickets for the July 8-9, 2013 “ARCA Fest” go on sale Friday, February 22nd at 10:00 a.m. Central Time online at www.ARCAfest.com

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.
