The 2019 OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series GEICO 500 race at Talladega SuperSpeedway started with Mike Schrader capturing the pole and Ed Adams recording the fastest lap of the race. Joel Kilburn gained 26 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Gary Griffith led 107 laps, with Joel Kilburn going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 5 cautions with 18 lead changes and there were 10 disqualifications with 7 disconnects in a 36 car field ending with Joel Kilburn capturing his 1st win of the season with Gary Griffith finishing 2nd, Chris Scales 3rd and Josh Robinson capturing 4th.

This week the OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series moves to the AAA 400 Drive for Autism race at Dover Int’l 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.
