(DAYTONA BEACH, FL) Rain was falling in Daytona but in between the raindrops the ASRS Skeeber Flobs Kettle Corn Pro-Series was able to fit in its Twin 75 races at Daytona. Daytona is known to fulfill dreams and crush them at the same time. For Ty Hester who rolled into Daytona with a slim points lead, his dream of being champion became more likely while his competition saw their hopes get lower.

The action got started in the late afternoon as Bradley Cross and Steven Trombly led the field to the green for race #1. It did not take long for the “big one” to strike as the field was slowed for a big wreck on lap 4. The wreck started when Thomas Bergeron and Pete Baskins made contact on the backstretch. The wreck would have major points implications as four drivers in the top 5 were involved. Jared Mogard, Allan Young, Tom Giannini and Danny Rodgers all sustained damage in the wreck meanwhile points leader Hester was able to avoid receiving any damage in the melee.

The action would only increase from there as rain threatened to end the race early and drivers battled for the win after a late yellow. Edward Bray was the victor in what would be his first ASRS win. Bray was followed by Mitch Brown, points leader Ty Hester, Steven Trombly and Gary Nichols.

As the sun went down, the grid was set for race #2. Kris Titus and Zachary Bozanich led the field to the green but as the case in the first race, the “big one” struck early yet again, this time on lap 6.

The wreck did not do much to calm the drivers down. After being single file for just a few laps after the restart, the drivers became restless yet again much to the delight of fans. The race was dominated by Zachary Bozanich who led all but one lap.

That one lap would prove to be the most important one as it would be Josh Walker that led the final one after dodging a spectacular wreck coming to the finish line. Like Edward Bray, the victory was the first in ASRS for Walker. He was followed by Jason Stewart, Pete Baskins, Scott Haller and Danny Rodgers.

Hester currently leads the points standings by 10 over Danny Rodgers.  With only 2 races left, the stakes are high for Hester as the Skeeber Flobs Kettle Corn Pro-Series rolls into Lucas Oil Raceway for the Indy 125 next Wednesday.
