Allison Continues Ford Division Hot Streak

For the second time this year Noah Allison set a new track record during qualifying for the Vintage Wrench Ford Division. James Mikesell took the early lead following the inversion of the top four in qualifying chased by Michael Cranmer and visiting Kentucky driver Brandon Winters.

Allison climbed from the fourth starting position and took the lead on the 11th¬†circuit with a pass of both Mikesell and Cranmer in the high groove in turns three and four. Winters would climb to the second spot by lap 14 but was never able to challenge Allison for the victory. Mikesell saw a top five run evaporate when he spun in turn four with six laps remaining, which didn’t bring out the caution flag. At the checkers it was Allison winning by 3.6-seconds over Winters and Cranmer. Kyle Evans came home in fourth followed by Matthew Benzbower. During qualification there were 15 drivers within one-second of each other with Allison lowering the track record to 15.253-seconds (59 miles per hour).
