37 Street Stocks Battle for World Short Track Championship Starting Positions

Thirty-seven Drydene Racing Formulas Street Stocks attempted to qualify for the 24-car Drydene World Short Track Championship Feature scheduled for Saturday, October 31. Four Heat Races separated 20 drivers from those who will need the Last Chance Showdown to make it into the starting lineup.

Tyler Love, from Lancaster, SC, took the win in Heat Race 1. Love took his Hamm-built Street Stock to the lead after starting on the outside pole position. The Johnson Racing chassis served him well as he drove off for the win. Damon Crump, Blake Pryor, Justin Morris and Kris Frost also transferred to the Feature.

Pole-sitter Chris Rice was hammer down from the get-go. His Drydene Racing Formulas Street Stock was quick and handled well enough to bring him home in the top seed. Also transferring from Heat Race 2 was Ricky Greene, Joe Belkey, Johnny Westmoreland, and Earl Petty.

Calob McLaughlin, out of Belmont, NC, took an impressive win in Heat Race 3. McLaughlin held off Thomas McCurdy. Bradley Weaver, Junior Johnson, and Tre Beaty, who also qualified for the Feature.

Patrick Lyon roared to the lead in Heat Race 4 and never looked back. Lyon locked himself into an exceptional starring position for the Drydene Racing Formulas Street Stock Feature. Also transferring were Dalton Peavy, Timmy Smith, Jessie Gibson, and Greg Carroll.

Next for the Drydene Racing Formulas Street Stocks is the Last Chance Showdown and the 24-car Feature battle royale.
