2012 Ice Bowl…. as the dr seen it!


I thought about the races all the way home last night and I want to say some of the best racing I have seen in a while, Ray Cook flying his new colors took the supers to school with a win , totally dominating the class, no matter what or who came at him Ray cook took off and ran away with the race, Jason Welshan took a hard hit with the wall and broke his thumb, and was doubtful for the crate feature but he did make the show.

The weather was horrible Sunday, over cast, rain off and on.. took 2 hours to work track in with 4wheelers …and the ruts, well lets put it as the announcer did, “the track has character” well those were his words, my take on it was the track had “ruts” huge ruts. But it made the drivers very careful about picking their lines.

But the real story of the night was the Crate feature, Jeff Smith from Dalton Ga, had bad luck right off the bat and wound up with a flat, fixed it under caution and came back out 24th, and one by one picked his way back to the top, Tim Busha lead a large part of the race looking like no one had anything at all for him. But with about 7 laps to go Busha seemed to hurt his car and started dropping back, and it was Simms in the 07 the 2X of Anthony White and the 17S of Jeff Smith, on the last lap it was Anthony White with the lead, and Jeff Smith dove under him getting into turn 2 and down the back straight, White was all over Smith but like a true racer Smith never lifted going for the checkered and into 3 it was either one’s race, with Smith holding a slim lead, when White tried a bonsai move to retake the lead and came up short, Jeff Smith took the win followed by Larry Timms and 77 of Connor.

I want to commend the staff of TST for the never ending work to try and make the track better it just wasn’t meant to be.
