Race number 1 in our Inaugural Legends Series was at New Smyrna Speedway down in sunny… uh… foggy Florida. Taking the pole position was Lowell Jewell followed by his teammate David Schaeffer in 2nd.
The racing was intense throughout and a lot of fun! Jewell had led the first 13 laps when Brad Spidle made the pass to take over the top spot. After a few hard fought laps with Matt Hoose, Jewell fell back to 3rd.
Then in a spectacular crash, his car breaks loose coming off of turn 4 and slams hard into the outside wall. He was unable to make repairs in time to return to the track.
Spidle led 37 laps and took the checkered flag just ahead of Hoose. Schaeffer finished 3rd and that’s how they stack up in the point standings with 11 races to go.
Next week the series heads to Concord, NC.
