Last night, the Les Enterprises MP Roy Inc Upstate Racing League Pro Late Model Series rolled into the New Smyrna Speedway for race 3 of 16, the Kingsport Tire and Auto Center 125. For the second straight week, Justin Fuller would set quick time and start from the NHR Pole. Fuller would follow up last week’s dominating win with another one, and he has now led 225 consecutive laps in the Pro Late Model Series. This week though, he did face some tough challenges in the form of Iowa winner Stefan Marinak, and Dale O’Neil throughout the 125 lap event. Both drivers would hound Fuller at different points in the event, but neither could make the pass they needed to to grab the win away from him. Marinak would finish in the runner up position, followed by Dale O’Neil in 3rd, Nicklas Rasmussen in 4th, and CJ LaVair in the 5th position. By virtue of gaining 9 spots throughout the course of the event (15th to 6th), Guillaume Fortin was awarded the HAAG TV Hard Charger Award.
With 9 races to go before the Chase begins, Stefan Marinak is the points leader by 5 points over Justin Fuller, 8 points over 3rd place Nicklas Rasmussen, 10 points over 4th place Dale O’Neil, and 18 points over 5th place Guillaume Fortin. Dylan Gaudette is currently the last driver in a Chase position, and he has a 2 point cushion over 13th place Justin MacDuff. Next week is an off week for the URL, and in two weeks the series heads to the USA Speedway for the NHR 125. The NHR 125 can be viewed live on LSRTV on November 3rd, with coverage starting live at 9:30 PM EST. As always be sure to check the site often for updates and news regarding the league. We’ll see you at the track!
