Season Opening Merchants Bank Freedom Lynx 150 May 5, 2002
Rookie Corey Pittsley(45) loops it in early Heat Race action. Jacob McGrath ( 72), Scott Dragon (70) and eventual 150 winner Jean Paul Cyr (64) get by without incident.
Jay Caron (12) probably wishing he was anywhere else but where he is now.
Dave Wilcox (16) gets turned around in turn 2 during his Heat Race. You could tell the Late Models had some 50 entries by the way the drivers where working their tails off in the heats to make the show. No free rides on the ACT tour, that is for sure!
Lot of new paint schemes to get used to. Tracie Bellerose (2) goes by Derek Ming (31) on the outside, while Ken Dufor (4) brings up the rear.
Scott Carpenter's (67) sharp looking new ride was not so sharp looking after contact with Herb Drugg (90). Drugg also won the best appearing car award before todays events. Guess that would be a short lived award as the car got pretty torn up on this day.
