Brian Bergakker cut 14 points out of 12-time champion Andy Bozell’s lead in last Saturday night’s Lane 75 and now enters this Saturday’s Cool Shirt 50 a mere 57 points out of the lead. Both drivers have had a very strong start to the season with Bozell finishing in the top five in all three events so far. Bergakker struggled on opening night but since then has won the Sun Drop 50 and finished second in the Lane 75. Trent Hellenga is still looking for his first Outlaw Super Late Model victory but appears to be a legitimate championship contender, currently sitting just 79 points behind in third. Defending champion Phil Bozell was involved in a vicious crash on the very first lap last Saturday night and his 21st place finish has relegated him to fourth in the standings. Rounding out the top five in the current standings is Billy Shannon, who collected another top ten finish last week.
