CRA All-Stars Ready For Dixieland Battle
SALEM, Ind. – The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance will head to Dixie Motor Speedway, located in Birch Run, Mich., this Friday for the Dixie 100 Presented by JEGS.com.
The event will be the third race of the season for the crate motor template bodied series sanctioned by CRA and its third event held at Dixie Motor Speedway.
In last season’s event at the fast four-tenths-mile progressively banked d-shaped paved oval, 2012 series champion Daniel Hemric scored his third victory of the season in holding off Chad Finley to get the win. David Carter finished third, Jerrod Foley fourth and Tom Woodin fifth.
Finley tops the list of entries for Friday’s event, he comes in as the winner of the series last event on May 25th at Columbus Motor Speedway, his second in a row at that track and with the win took over the series points lead. Finley comes into Friday night’s event with a slim six point lead over 17-year-old Cody Coughlin, who has started the 2013 season strong with a sixth place finish in the Mercy Masters of the Pros season opener at Lebanon I-44 Speedway and a fifth place finish in front of his hometown crowd at Columbus Motor Speedway, and is entered for Friday’s event.
