Last night was round 4 of the CKF Construction Super Late Model Series as they invaded Stafford Motor Speedway. Shawn Cool would set fast time in qualifying edging out Jake Watson by .006 seconds with a time of 20.085. On the start Cool would jump out to the early lead over Watson and AJ Hamel. Cool would lead the first 17 laps before contact between him and Watson would send Cool spinning to the infield. Moments late contact between the 10 of Tucker Minter and Hamel’s CKF Construction Chevy would happen sending the 10 for a slide in turn 3. On the restart Watson jumped out to the lead but just three short laps later Hamel would jump out to the lead until a caution on lap 70 would bring the field down pit road. The CoreLife Eatery Chevy of Alex Orians would stay out becoming the race leader along with points leader Scott Naslund. Watson would restart third and make quick work of the wounded car of Naslund and set his sights on Orians. Kyle Charpenteir would slide in right behind Watson along with the Art’s Barber Shop Ford of Al Smith Jr. The final change for the lead would happen on lap 85 as Watson would take the lead and not look back to pick up his 2nd straight win in as many starts. Charpenteir would finish 2nd and Al Smith Jr rounded out the podium.
Next week the series heads Rockingham for race 5!
