The 2019 OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series AAA 400 Drive for Autism race at Dover Int’l Speedway started with Gael Brooks capturing the pole and Dwayne McArthur recording the fastest lap of the race. Charles Idell gained 23 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Jim Westerfield led 117 laps, with Eddie Jones going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 3 cautions with 12 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with 5 disconnects in a 27 car field ending with Eddie Jones capturing his 1st win of the season with Charles Idell finishing 2nd, Jim Westerfield 3rd and Mike Schrader capturing 4th.

This week the Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series moves to the KC Masterpiece 400 night race at Kansas Speedway with the current playoff leader Joel Kilburn looking for ways to maintain his lead in the Series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?

We shall see when the green flag drops at 11:40 am Eastern time.

In the OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series points championship, Gary Griffith 2nd, Mike Schrader 3rd, Eddie Jones 4th and Josh Mayeu in 5th.

The Kansas night race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
