DODD TAKES SECOND IN NASCAR SLM AT IRWINDALE
Mira Loma, CA- Scott Dodd in his Watkins powered #25 Chevy Super Late Model took second this weekend behind the winnest driver at Irwindale, Rip Michels. Dodd who qualified third out of the 22 car field moved into the second position on the second lap of the 50 lap main event and never looked back. Dodd and Michels took off from the pack and had a 25 car lead before the first yellow came out. On the restart the pair was able to pull away from the pack again. Dodd was able to keep his position thru two more yellows and took the checker flag behind the winner Rip Michels.
"What a night, we had a great car and this finish moves us up to first in the points tied with Andrew Phipps". As it later turned out Dodd who is currently leading the Rookie points actually moved to within 2 points of point's leader Andrew Phipps due to another competitor having an issue during tech inspection causing the finishing points to be adjusted.
The next race for Dodd is May 19th at Irwindale Speedway. Gates open at 4:30PM and autograph session is at 5:30pm with racing starting at 7PM.
