a few lucky inverts to get to the lead after the first five races.
Second place in
points Jim Crabtree Jr. from Muncie, Indiana has had an up and down
season, starting off with a win at Shenandoah followed by a wrecked
race car at Columbus, but comes into the next race with momentum off
a win last time out. The
Crabtree racing family has been busy at work getting their super
late model ready for such high level races later in the season as
the Winchester 400. Jimís
sons J.P. and Jaren have been busy as well.
J.P. helped out with the Eddie Van Meter effort in the recent
Red Bud 300 super late model race as well as coached his race day

The Cal Richardson owned #3 has only made two appearances so
far this year, but results were a win and second place finish during
the Pennsylvania doubleheader weekend at Motordrome Speedway and CNB

discovering an issue with the transmission prior to Ona, the team
should have things resolved in time for Midvale.
