To Race Or Not To Race That Was The Question
Saturday August 22nd Mark Wyman and the ACFRA Board hoped for the best on getting in a full night of half-mile dirt racing action before the weather got to the track. However with lightening giving racers and fans an extra show to watch and a few sprinkles the night was cut short.

Paul Glendenning added another trophy to his collection Saturday in his Coors Light Silver Bullet Late Model, but not without contention.

Stalker Chevrolet B-Mods Chomping At The Bit
Saturday’s rain cancellation left drivers wanting more this past weekend. Championship contenders Jerod Weston, Ryan Jenkins, Kody Havens, Bryce Allen and Shawn Kralik were all ready to push their machines to the limit Saturday until weather pushed their feature to next week. All five drivers have shown that they are ready to be the 2015 track champion with three features to decide who will get the honor. Brothers Dustin and Bret Sheppard are having a fun family battle with their EDGE Chassis B-Mods built by Josh Most. Dustin and Bret finished 1st and 2nd in their heat against each other and fans can’t wait to see them share the track again this week.
POET Biorefining Modifieds Still Tough Competition
Jesse Dennis and Jeff Wiggins both made a strong showing Saturday night. “Candy Man” appears to have gotten some bugs worked out and made sure fans took notice that he still had something left for Dennis. Fans seem to be concentrated on the top 5 with Jon Plowman, Clint Homan and the Van Eatonville Mafia of Todd Van Eaton and Jeff James all vying for 4th and 5th and hopes of maybe more with a few races left.
Northland Oil Pro-stocks Brings Fans To Their Feet
Tony Hardisty made his debut last week in a new ride with fans cheering after an overdue wait to see one of the ACS greats back on the dirt. This week they got yet another reason to tell their friends and neighbors to not miss another show as “Scuba” Steve Churchill made his return to ACS. Talk on the infield is that it was for one night of fun with a loaned hot rod from Brad Derry, but fans are wanting more. Only time will tell if they get to see Tony Hardisty and “Scuba” Steve battling once again. Brad Derry, Kevin Sharp, Joe Zadina and Greg Miller have made it very clear that there will not be a walk-away champion in the pro-stocks this season. It appears that it will come down to September 5th and the last checkered of the season on who will have bragging rights until next year.
Chat Mobility Hobby Stocks Controversy
Chat Mobility has had one of the most talked about classes at ACS this season and it is well deserved with the level of competition that has been going on each and every week. Matt McAtee, Andy Davison, Jeremy Purdy and Luke Ramsey have made hobby stocks a “must see” class this year. Dave Weeda took a heat win and made it evident for the top 4 to not count him out just yet as he is ready to be the first to the double checkers again. Great weeks and weeks that have made drivers let’s just say not too happy have kept the points battle very tight. All drivers in the top 15 have not gave each other an inch or an easy breath all year and the fans continue to look forward to next week.
