It was Fast Forward Qualifying today for the DT 100 at Maine Indoor Karting. A total of 18 drivers showed up to attempt qualify for an already stout line up of drivers attending the March 2 race. The 18 drivers where broken up into two separate classes with Lights and Heavy’s depending on their weight.
In the lights heat race, it was Kevin Girard taking the checkers and in the Heavy heat race it was Scotty Frazier, but the winners weren’t guaranteed the pole position for their feature’s due to a redraw.
In the Lights it was Kyle Treadwell on the pole, and with ten drivers in this class it was a great battle to the finish with Alex Lacognata taking the victory over the pole sitter and rounding out the final transfer spot Nick Cusack.
The Heavy division took to the track next with Geoff R. starting on the pole with seven drivers chasing him to the green. From the back Scotty Frazier was turning some fast laps moving himself into second position, but in the closing laps contact was made with the leader ending his chance at a victory or transfer spot. Now it was up to the officials to make the call to put Frazier to the back, once the call was made this left Les Keyser on the point with two to go with heavy pressure from behind. Once the race got back under way it was mad dash to the checkers with Keyser taking the victory.
With a little over a month from the DT 100, there is a list of top drivers across the Northeast that will be in attendance on March 2nd. Drivers like top PASS Champions Ben Rowe, Johnny Clark. Super modified stand outs like Joey Payne and Midwest Supermodified Champion Trent Stephens among others on the list. This race is for a great cause, supporting the Make-A-Wish foundation which helps children wishing for one thing in life that will help put a forever lasting smile on their face. I hope to see all there and support what Dave Thomas Jr. has done for this great organization over the past 5 years.
