Insigner Performance Modified Title on the line this Friday night Aug. 27th on Championship Night at Big Diamond Speedway  

As the 2021 season winds down with only three shows left on the schedule. This Friday night August 27th will be Championship Night as all four weekly divisions will crown a champion.  

In the Insigner Performance Modified division the race for the title has come down to two drivers. Current points leader Duane Howard has seen his once large points lead shrink down to a mere nine points over a strong running Timmy Buckwalter. Buckwalter has been coming on like a freight train over the past month and Howard has struggled somewhat after his big win back on July 16th. Howard had a real fast car last Friday in the Prelude to the Coalcracker but with show up points being given out there was no gains or losses by either driver. The tension will be high on Friday night as Howard hopes to add to his list of Big Diamond titles with Timmy Buckwalter looking for his first ever modified title. The modifieds will race 25-laps this Friday for a $3,500 payday.   Read More..

Jonathan Swift (Savage 61 Crates) and Mike Burrows (U.S.S. Achey Open Sportsman) both win their third features of the year and Andrew Fayash III continues his dominance in the Red White and Blue Autos Roadrunners.   Read More..
