FAST Indiana Doubleheader Weekend
This Friday and Saturday, the NAPA Auto Parts - FAST on Dirt winged 410 sprint cars will kick off the holiday weekend with a pair of stops in the Hoosier state. Friday night, Gas City Speedway will be the scene and one night later, the teams will move on to the Montpelier Motor Spedway just 35 minutes away. One year ago, these tracks hosted winged events under the "BOSS" name, just prior to BOSS acquiring ownership of the FAST on Dirt tour.
In the 2018 events, the Gas City race found 27 teams in the pit area. California hot shoe Giovanni Scelzi proved you could pass in wing cars on a heavy - hammerdown 1/4 mile. He charged from 14th starting spot to pass Caleb Armstrong in the final corner and steal the win. Brandon Wimmer had looked like a sure winner early, but tangled with a lapped car, dropping him from contention.
At Montpelier in late September, Lee Jacobs lowered the all time track record by over 6/10th's of a second! It was Lockbourne, Ohio driver Cole Duncan winning the main event though. Jacobs and Kody Kinser completed the podium as 29 winged 410 sprints graced the pit area.
This season, Duncan and Jacobs have ruled the tour thus far. Duncan holds a slight advantage in the championship standings. Tyler Gunn, Cody Bova, and Jordan Harble complete the top 5 in current standings.
