TWO DRIVERS FROM WORST TO FIRST
Driver X Jon Reynolds, Jr and Nick Cina, Jr both took different routes to put themselves in victory lane last Saturday night. Reynolds accepted the Gerber Collision & Glass Challenge after qualifying second, placing his Chevrolet at the tail of the Late Model field. Cina found trouble in the first American Short Tracker session when his axle broke, however he and his crew continued to work and by feature time there was no stopping his Ford. Reynolds collected a $1,300 bonus for his efforts while Cina finds himself closer to the top of the point standings. All told these drivers passed 32 cars in 55 laps utilizing the inside line.
