(Salem, IN - June 1, 2016) – Berlin Raceway officials have announced some changes in the break format for the Battle at Berlin 251 Presented by Primera Plastics, sanctioned by the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, which will be held at Berlin Raceway on Monday, June 13th. After listening to several race teams’ needs and concerns, the track has decided to alter the way the teams will reline up after the two breaks.

At the lap 200 break, the top five in the running order will redraw for the line-up for the restart on lap 201 for the final 51 laps of the event.

With the change CRA officials have announced that the advanced entry deadline has been extended to this Friday, June 3rd. Teams entering the event after June 3rd will have to pay a late fee.

No Bones about the Florida State Bomber Champion!

(May 28, 2016 – Bradenton, FL) - Desoto Speedway set the mood for some action packed racing along with the crowning of the Florida State Bomber Champion. Fans were treated to a 22 car field of bombers from all over the state. After qualifying it was #57 Carl Thompson atop the leader board at 18.645, the top seven were all in the eighteen second bracket.  Thompson would draw the 8 pill inverting 8 rows thus putting his potent Chevy Nova in the 16th spot for the 50 lap shootout. The fans were treated to a grandstand driver introduction and all were applauded by the packed house. #21 Josh Hall led the field to the green and a few laps later #38 Nicholas Malverty rocketed to the top spot and looked to be the class of the field. Malverty seemed to have lost power and turned over the top spot to #56 James Wright who then set the pace. Charging through the field were Thompson, Brandon “Bones” Duchscherer, Aaron Holmes and Brian Harbin. Thompson’s night would end with mechanical problems leaving the latter to duke it out. Duchscherer would opt to the outside of Wright on the front row and motor to the lead and never look back to win the Inaugural Florida State Bomber Championship.  Duchscherer pocketed a cool $1000 cash along with a mystery donation from a fan of $100. Buddy Griffin’s Specialty Cooling Products also provided a way to keep his machine cool awarding him a brand new radiator. “I could really use that as my car was overheating at 300 degrees at the checkered” said Bones. Rounding out the top five were James Wright, Brian Harbin, Aaron Holmes and Jamie Castleberry.
