“The Crate List” July 2014
Welcome back to The Dirt Network’s monthly crate late model rankings page. June was another great month for crate racing as races we feature on this page were again scored for 7 different tracks. Specials at Dog Hollow, Roaring Knob, Potomac, and Winchester were supported by weekly races at Sharon, Pittsburgh Motor Speedway, Marion Center, Dog Hollow, and Roaring Knob.
The Crate list will follow this format, I will be looking at weekly and touring race results for the crate tracks in the area with emphasis on the Fastrak and RUSH series. So here is The Crate List for July!
1. Rick Singleton – Call him “Mr. Touring race” after winning three RUSH tour races in a row at Roaring Knob, Potomac, and Winchester respectively. The former super late driver is at the top of the crate game wherever they decide to race. Rick moves form honorable mention to the captains chair for July’s list.
2. Ryan Montgomery – three top 5 finishes in the Rush tour races in June at Roaring Knob, Potomac, and Winchester moved “Flyin Ryan” into the top 5 from the Honorable Mention class. Ryan currently leads the RUSH touring points and is 3rd in RUSH weekly points
3. Andrew Satterlee – May wins rolled into June with 2 more victories, a second and a fourth at Marion Center along with, a weekly win and the Thunder Dog 25 winner at Dog Hollow capped another strong June for “Dews”
4. Mike Laughard.- 2 wins and 2 second place finishes to Andrew Satterlee at Marion Center followed up with a 2nd place at Dog Hollow helped jump our third honorable mention driver from last month onto this month’s list.
5. Michael Lake-staying as the gatekeeper in the #5 spot, Michael got a win and two 3rd place finishes at Roaring Knob.
