The fast high-banked quarter mile normally races only on Saturday nights but will have this special Sunday show this weekend.
Sunday’s event will be the sixth point’s race of the season for the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman, and the last of four series events at Anderson, battling against many of the Anderson Speedway McGunegill Engine Performance Late Models contenders. With his victory at the series last event on July 17th at Anderson, 2014 series Champion Greg Van Alst has taken over the points lead at the series halfway point of the 2015 season. The victory came exactly a year after Van Alst scored his first ever CRA victory.
Van Alst has a slim one point lead over Jason Atkinson, who has one series victory this year at Lucas Oil Raceway on May 8th. J.P. Crabtree is third in series points, he is 33 points behind Atkinson. Rookie Matthew Parsons is in fourth place, he is only four points behind Crabtree. 2014 series Rookie of the Year Jack Dossey III is in fifth place, he is only two points behind Parsons with one victory so far this season, which came May 2nd at Anderson Speedway.
