Rain Shortens Elite Diesel Service Figure 8 Freak Out

July 23rd, 2022
A torrential downpour put a premature halt to what was otherwise a fantastic night of racing at Colorado National Speedway on Saturday, July 23rd. Racers across all divisions put on a show for the Dash and Fast Dash races, but unfortunately, only the Pueblo Bank & Trust Super Stock division was able to start their feature race. The Super Modifieds, Elite Diesel Service Figure 8s, and Mountain States Fire Protection Super Late Models got out on track for their dash races, but their feature events were rained out.

Pueblo Bank & Trust Super Stocks
Feature – 25 Laps
The No. 4 of Chris Jordan and the No. 60 of Jonathan Lindberg led the field of 25 Super Stocks to green. Jordan guided the No. 4 race car out in front early and checked out with the race lead, while Lindberg’s No. 60 did his best to cut the distance. The No. 49 of Chris Cox began to work his way through the field, and halfway through the race, Cox got around Lindberg to take second place. Jordan’s lead vanished when a caution waved for the No. 7 of David Robinson spewed fluid on the front stretch. Once it was cleaned off, Jordan’s No. 4 and Cox’s No. 49 showed the way on the restart. Jordan fought valiantly to keep Cox in his rearview mirror, never lifting. However, Cox found a way around Jordan and assumed the race lead with nine laps left on the board.
A large pileup involving four cars unfolded in Turns 1 and 2 with eight laps left, prompting a red flag with Cox’s No. 49 scored as the leader. By this point, the skies had opened, drenching the speedway with rainwater. The Super Stock race was rained out and deemed complete, granting the win to Cox in the No. 49 machine.
