The TNT Quick Shop Late Models will once again be led into battle this weekend by Browning, Missouri's Tommy Cordray as the 2009 Lucas Oil Speedway Track Champion flexed his MasterSbilt muscle once again this past weekend. Cordray not only took the win from his 8th starting spot but he continues to lead the points by just 22 points over youngster Jeremy Kelley from Walnut Grove, Missouri. Veteran Open Late Model Driver, Joe Walkenhorst driving the white #90 occupies the third spot in points just 56 behind the leader Cordray. Ben Solberg, Andy Kennedy, and Harlen Kennedy are locked up in a tight battle for fourth thru sixth as they are seperated by just four points with Solberg holding down the fourth spot. With $700 to win on the line each week, plus an extra $200 for the highest finishing GM Crate Engine powered car, and a $2,000 winner's share of the point fund, the TNT Quick Shop ULMA Late Model Class continues to shine with strong fields week in and week out.
After three long weeks off, the Pitt's Homes A-Modifieds will be back in action and the man they are still chasing is Galena, Missouri's Jesse Stovall. "The Undertaker" driving the QEM, Inc. Hoffman Racecar has won all 6 feature events at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks" this season and sits atop the points standings by 113 over Wheatland's Jason Pursley. CB Race Photos has offered an extra $50 this Saturday to any driver that can beat Stovall in the 20 Lap Main event. The money will increase $25 per week up to a maximum of $100 until Jesse's winning streak is broken. Bork also pledged that Stovall can earn the additional money himself by electing to start no farther up than the 10th row in the feature event. Tim Setzer, David Hendrix, Jeff Cutshaw round out the Top-5 in points and will be gunning for the extra money as they attempt to halt Stovall's winning streak.
There is a new face atop the Carson's Corner Napa Factory Stocks standings this week as another extremely talented local driver, Randy Gilmore finds himself leading the points by just 8 over Republic, Missouri's Burl Woods. Woods has two wins in a row to his credit but Gilmore's consistency week in and week out has earned him the top spot in as the drivers head into the long mid-summer stretch of racing action. Camdenton, Missouri's Kenny Carroll has slipped back to third just one point behind Woods while Troy Reasoner Jr. holds down the fourth spot with Keith Webster clinging to fifth. Chip Shaddox sits just outside the Top-5, only 30 points out of the top spot. With the top-6 in points separated by just 30 points, the intensity for the season long battle for the track championship continues to build each week.

About Casey's General Stores
In 1959, Founder Don Lamberti leased a store from his father on east 14th and Broadway in Des Moines, Iowa. After nine years of operating this old country store, which he remodeled into a convenience store, Don's gas supplier and friend Kurvin C. Fish, suggested that Don buy the Square Deal Oil Company.
Don followed his advice and purchased the service station with a three-bay garage in Boone, Iowa. Using the knowledge from his store in Des Moines, Don converted the gas station into a convenience store. The Boone store was named "Caseys" by using Kurvin C. Fish's initials.
The third store was built in another small community with a population of only 1,500 - Waukee, Iowa. This was the first Casey's built totally from scratch and proved to be the best store yet. At this point, Don realized he was on to something and decided to establish the stores in communities with a population of 5,000 or less.
Through the years, Casey's success has been attributed to our clean stores, restrooms, and the friendly employees who pride themselves in customer service. Casey's customers have come to know that inside each store they will find dedicated, helpful, and well-trained employees, exceptional prepared food items, and a clean environment in which to shop. As of March 31st, 2010 Casey's has 1513 Corporate Stores including locations in Wheatland, Weaubleau, and Hermitage Missouri. For more information, please visit www.Caseys.com.
