The point championship in the Super Late Models came down to the final race. Andrew Mullins held a 20 point advantage over Ricky Elliott at the start of the race and started behind Elliott deep in the field. Bob Geiger won his heat race and started on the pole with Joe Warren, who had won the second heat starting in second by virtue of their point averages.

 Geiger lead the first four laps before a heart stopping accident occurred on the back straight. Geiger’s left rear went flat causing him to spin in front of the pack. The cars immediately behind him shot to the bottom and made it by but a pack of cars were racing hard at the back. David Pettyjohn T-boned Geiger’s sideways car with both cars exploding into pieces. A shocked crowd watched as Pettyjohn’s car ended up atop the inside barrier with the throttle stuck open and it burst into flames. Meanwhile Geiger sat slumped in his car that had be cut totally in half.

 Rescue and wrecker crews rushed to the scene and while they were not able to extinguish the flames they were able to keep them away enough to help get Pettyjohn from the car. Workers attending Geiger feared the worst but he slowly regained consciousness and climbed from the car that was completely gone from his driver’s seat on back. Delmar Volunteer Fire Dept. arrived but it still took them several minutes to extinguish the flames that were fueled by a broken fuel line and oil running from the engine. Pettyjohn was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a bad laceration of his leg and an ankle that was broken in two places. Geiger refused to be transported and remained with his wife Debbie at the track.

 After a lengthy cleanup the race was restarted with Warren out front in the experimental Ford small block. Mullins got by Staci Warrington for second on the restart and Elliott climbed to third one lap later. The final 14 laps were all under the green with Warren taking his first win in the division. Warren had very mixed emotions in victory lane and was obviously shaken from the earlier incident. Mullins crossed the line in second with his fist pumping out the window of the car as he realized he had won the overall championship. Elliott would finished just 25 points back in third with Donald Lingo, Jr. fourth and Herb Tunis fifth.

Next race is the Champ show at DIS on Oct 17th and 18th. Hope to see you there to close out the 2014 season!




The Super Late Model division at DIS has integrated Ford's S374W crate motor and Chevy's CT525 crate motor with weight breaks and a softer tire compound to compete against the open motor super late models. There is a lot of work to do before the season starts, and there will be an equal amount of work to do as I attempt to figure out how to make this new package competitive with the open motors. I can say this, It's going to be a very exciting year and I am looking forward to this new challenge! For more information on Ford's race built crate S374W motor, click here and go to Ford's crate racing engine page. More information to come!

After talking with CJ Jones of Jones Racing Products,  I'm thrilled to be running a Jones Racing Products front end drive kit on my new Ford motor. I admired their products at the AARN Motorsports show in Philadelphia this past winter and know that this package will finish off this motor quite nicely. If you are interested to see what kind of front drive kits they have for you, visit JonesRacingProducts.com

A great way to end the season finale... My first "super late model " win with the small block Ford S374W crate motor. 


I am extremely excited to be a part of the Ford family as I have been a long time fan of the blue oval. The #11 will be a test car at DIS for the new S374W race built crate motor.
