Conneaut, OH (July 10, 2019) — Raceway 7 will present a 5-Star show Friday night including regular-length features for the Evergreen Lake Park Campground RUSH Late Models, the Bonnell’s Collision Service E-Mods, the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stocks, the Bonnell’s Auto Sales Economods, and the Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stocks.
Defending Evergreen Lake Park Campground RUSH Late Model Champion Darrell Bossard has a comfortable 72 point margin over second running Breyton Santee but Santee has been strong all summer, having a win, a second, and a third in features. Bossard has come on strong the past three weeks, winning back to back to back. Bossard also has a second, a third, and two fourths, never finishing out of the top four! Four points behind Santee is former champion Kyle Zimmerman, also with a win, a second, and a third this season. Dave Airgood is fourth, another 34 points back. Airgood, uncharacteristically, has not yet been to Victory Lane. Fifth, with wins on opening night and on May 31, is Matt Latta, one solitary point behind Airgood.

Gary Eicher, a past champion, is third, another sixteen points back. Eicher scored win May 24th and June 7th. Mike Potosky, the winner three consecutive weeks, June 14, 21, and 28, is another 47 points behind with Dan McDonald, winless this season, fifth, only sixteen more back.

Pat Fielding, May 24 and June 7 winner, holds a 68-point lead over Joe Stajnragh, yet to visit Victory Lane but having a consistent summer, finishing in the top five on four occasions. Jamie Duncan, winless thus far, is third, another 33 back with Darr Diegelman, also winless, fourth another 7 back, and Bill Watson a single point behind Diegelman in fifth. Watson is also winless.
The Bonnell’s Auto Sales Economods are led by Matt Alexander, who has not yet won a feature but has three seconds and two thirds in feature competition.
