       WILL THIS PICTURE EVER CHANGE IN 2017? WILKINS TAKES SECOND OF SEASON @4-17 SOUTHERN SPEEDWAY

         


WILKINS lll CONTINUES DOMINANCE OF THE FIELD



With the best car count of the season the FMRA was for once able to beat Mother Nature and get the feature race completed on Saturday night June 17th at 4-17 Southern Speedway in Punta Gorda. The end result was no different however with a complete dominating performance by  defending Series Champion Jimmy Wilkins lll in the  #11 owned by his wife Carolyn.


Running only the feature due to the weather, the pill draw put former Champion Mike Belusar in the #63 on the pole with the #4 of Al Seitz on the outside.  On the drop of the green flag Belusar took the lead going into turn one. Current points leader Jamie Barnum in the #7 dove under Seitz from his fourth starting position and took over second coming out of turn two. Belusar and Barnum continued to battle for the lead for several laps until Wilkins who had started from the rear past both with relative ease and cruised to victory in the caution free event. Mike Nelson finished fourth driving the #13 and Todd Morey, driving in his first  race ever  in  a TQ brought home Jimmy Wilkins #15 in fifth.


Great to see a good field of cars coming out to support the Club and look forward to even more to join us at our next event, July 29th at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park.
