2017 Pennsylvania Super Late Model Power Rankings: Week 6
Hey there folks, it's Monday so that means I'm gonna write some words and stuff to let you all know how the top ten late model drivers in the state of Pennsylvania fared this past weekend.
There wasn't an incredible amount of movement on this week's poll, even though some new tracks joined the fray for the first time this season. Saturday was rained out at a couple of the tracks that would have scored points, one of them being an increased point special, so it that may have contributed to some more movement. One bright note, though, is that Roaring Knob managed to get their show in and joined the poll for the first time this year, and amazingly enough, they had results on the web within a couple hours. I hope that keeps up, because previous years it's been a chore to find out who finished where down there.
Weather is currently looking pretty sketchy for this coming weekend's action, though meteorologists are about the most unreliable folks on the planet. Let's hope Ma Nature sees fit to give us a weekend fit for racing. On a weather related note, though, apparently some nasty storms are currently headed my way, complete with a tornado watch. Fun fun fun.
Anyways, let's get to these rankings before stormaggedeon hits and my power goes out.
1. Jeff Rine***, 27 points. Jeff took the win at Bedford Friday.
2. Gregg Satterlee*, 19 points. Gregg was scoreless this past weekend.
3. Matt Cosner*, 18 points. Matt ran second at Bedford Friday.
4. Chad Hollenbeck*, 16 points. Chad was second under the checkers at Port Royal Saturday.
5. Coleby Frye, 14 points. Coleby was third at Port Royal Saturday.
6. Max Blair*, 13 points. Max ran second Friday at Thunder Mountain.
7. Dave Hess Jr.*, 12 points. Dave took an 0fer this week.
8. Gary Stuhler, 11 points. Gary went scoreless this week as well.
9. Alex Ferree, 10 points. Alex ran second at Lernerville Friday.
9. Rick Eckert*, 10 points. Rick had a scoreless weekend.
9. Tony Adams, 10 points. Tony also scored 0 points this weekend.
9. Dylan Yoder*, 10 points. Dylan picked up the win at Port Royal Saturday.
And that's the first twelve names on my list after this week's action. I had to go with twelves because ties. If you've been a regular reader of this column, you'll know that ties bug me. Not because I have to write more words, because really, that's just a minor annoyance. It's more because I don't feel that we get a true feeling at who the best drivers are in the state until we start seeing some separation.
I'm also noticing that the usual suspects in this poll seem to be creeping their way to the top. As more and more tracks get their shows in going into the summer, I tend to think we'll see even more familar names hit the top ten.
Anyways, I hope we get to see some racing this coming weekend, and I'll be back next Monday with a more interesting update.
