So far, Jeff Strunk has won two of the May Month of Money feature events, in two different cars, with Eddie Strada winning the other. Who will it be this Friday night? Current Quandel Concrete Modified points leader Mike Gular has been the model of consistency, finishing in the top five in all three May feature races run so far. With his consistency, Gular is the leader right now in the race for the Bill Brown & Company $200 bonus which goes to the modified driver who has the highest average finish in the month of May that has competed in all the races. Gular would love to cap off winning the bonus by also being victorious in the 25-lap feature. Currently Gular leads the race for the championship by 30 points over Eddie Strada. The father-son duo of Ryan Watt and Logan Watt sit third and fourth with Louden Reimert completing the top five.
