Mike Franklin led the most laps with 95, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 3 cautions with 8 lead changes and there were 1 disqualification with 5 disconnects in a 23 car field ending with Mike Franklin capturing his 9th win of the season with Mike Schrader finishing 2nd, Ed Adams 3rd and Joel Kilburn capturing 4th.

This week the Metro Ford Cup Series Chase Playoffs are at the Delaware 400 race at Dover Int’l Speedway with the current playoff leader Mike Schrader looking to find ways to maintain the lead in the Chase.

The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?

In the Metro Ford Cup Series Chase playoff championship, Mike Franklin in 2nd, Kenney Kulikowski 3rd and Pat Milligan 4th and Joel Kilburn 5th place…

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

Congratulations to the Drivers that advanced to Round 2 of the Metro Ford Chase For the Cup Round of 12 Playoff.  All Chase Drivers have a clean slate of 4000 points! Good luck in the 2nd Round.
