Furr leads the way to the Moser Sportsman Shootout.
Williams, Furr, Labbous, Hairrington, Crutchfield and Barker lead the way to the Moser Sportsman Shootout.
With only one points earning event left on the 2014 Moser Sportsman Shootout (Southeast Division), Jeffrey Barker holds a commanding lead in the Top Sportsman category with 2 final round wins already this season. But 10 other racers are in contention for the remaining spot in the category with Ronnie Davis the last in line that could catch Sandy Wilkins for the last available spot.
Top Dragster also has 8 racers fighting for the coveted spots in the shootout, with Steve Furr clinging to a one point advantage over Jeff Strickland.
Furr also is sitting atop the pile in Super Gas with Ray Miller III, Jim Perry, Sherman Adcock, Jason Lynch, and David Owens hoping to secure one of the two spots in the Shootout.
In Super Street, 14 racers are mathematically still in contention to punch their ticket to the finale. Troy Williams, Jr. holds 237 points to his credit. But in second place is Mike Griggs who will enter the Gainesville event with a lot of room to improve on his disappointing season opener in Orlando earlier this year. Leland Poppell sits in the 14th position with one more race to count towards his total.
Super Comp has the largest field of racers still in contention. While John Labbous, Jr. holds 290 points at the top spot, Greg Trew still mathematically has room to move all the way from the 24th position all the way up to 2nd if a Wally is in his future at the Gainesville Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in October. But that would also require a lot of “help” from the other racers currently sitting in the top 10 spots.
Stock is primarily a battle between Jeff Hairrington, Robbie Shaw, and Jeff Adkinson. However Whaley, Foley, Stephenson, Marshall, Stott, Wood and Norton all still have a shot at moving up into the second position by the end of the Gainesville regional event.
Super Stock features names used to being at the top with Crutchfield, Caheely and Coccarro duking it out. But with room to move up, all the way down in the 14th position sits Hankinson and Tueffel that can still climb to the top with one great day of racing at Auto-Plus Raceway.
