2013-2014 Can-Am Late Model Season Review
Can-Am Late Model Season Review
Our third crack at an oval racing series, in comparison to previous seasons, a success. On the one hand, car count was at times poor; the season opener at Delaware Speedway brought 12 cars to the table, with the same 12 starting at Barrie Speedway, but after that participation became spotty for several of the drivers, and counts hovered around the magic “9″ for the rest of the season.
Which is a shame–even a field of 14-15
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Coffey Sweeps Both Races at Iowa to Take The Championship!
Solid way to finish out the stockcar season, with a decent field of 10 at the season finale in Iowa!
With such a tight points battle, every position would count, and Qualifying put Rich Coffey where he needed to be, in third on the inside of rival Sherman Baumann, while teammate Tom Lory took his first career pole position in the Reed’s Ginger Brew Toyota. Cameron Wagner would line up alongside.
The Championship scenario was pretty simple–whoever finished ahead of the other
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Baumann Dominates at Bristol, Narrows Championshipto 4 Points Heading to Finale!
Well unfortunately despite all our efforts we still only managed 9 cars for the big race at Bristol. But there was some good racing to be had regardless.
Qualifying was extremely close, but it would be EVOL’S Brandon Smith putting his Toyota on point, his second of the season, with teammate Rich Coffey alongside. Coffey would snooker Smith on the start to take a commanding lead, leaving him to deal with John Culbert, Jr. and Tom Lory just behind.
The performance of
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Coffey Dominates at Bowman-Gray; Baumann Takes Win With Final Lap Tap
As expected, it was a rough-n-tumble night at the legendary bullring of Bowman-Gray Stadium, though not nearly as messy as expected. Points leader Rich Coffey would put the Reed’s Ginger Brew Toyota on point, but Qualifying amongst the top 5 was razor-close.
Race 1 was, frankly, a bit of a bore, with Coffey leading the entire 35 laps to take the win–though Cameron Wagner kept him honest, getting a nose in on a few occasions. After the last restart however, it
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Culbert wins Race of the Year candidate against Baumann at Madison; Coffey Picks up Race 2 Win
Decent turnout of 10 cars for our final stockcar event of 2013, at Madison!
Practice had several cars within a tenth or so of each other, but it would be John Culbert, Jr. landing his third pole of the season, an unbelievable 0.001 seconds ahead of Cameron Wagner!
Despite its high banks, Madison proved a difficult track to pass on, with the lower groove right down on the curb proving significantly quicker. Culbert would hold the top spot for the majority of
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Wagner Holds off all Challenges at Martinsville
Decent turnout of 11 cars for our mid-season race at the legendary paper-clip of Martinsville!
Lots of cars were running extremely close times in Practice, but it would be Brandon Smith putting the PPi Toyota on point for his first-career circle track pole. The front of the field was extremely close, the top 4 separated by only .080 seconds!
Things would get off to a rocky start as teammates Smith and Rich Coffey would go side-by-side into Turn 1, and make heavy
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Coffey Passes Culbert for Win in Race 1 at Thunderhill; Wagner Dominates Race 2
Good night of racing, despite only 8 cars taking to the grid, at the tricky D-Shaped ThunderHill Speedway.
Practice was agonizingly close amongst the top 5, but it would be John Culbert, Jr. putting the HAWK Performance Chevy on pole position. Only .084 would separate the top 3.
Culbert would lead from pole and withstand a fantastic challenge from Rich Coffey hanging on the outside for several laps, before finally jumping ahead exiting Turn 4. Two cautions in quick succession would fly
Wednesday LM: Wagner Picks Up First Career Oval Win; Coffey Wins War with Culbert at Stafford
Another solid night of racing, this time out at Stafford Speedway for our first American round. Car count remains low but the action high!
Hometown favourite Sherman Baumann would carry momentum from last week’s domination at Cayuga to land pole position in the hillclimb.org Toyota, but would struggle a bit for consistency during long green periods–which we mostly had, with only a single caution in all of Race 1! Coffey would snooker Baumann on the start to take the lead, and
Wednesday Can-Am Late Models: Baumann Dominates at Cayuga
Well that was quick! Only 9 made the grid again for Cayuga, with Sherman Baumann taking pole position in the hillclimb.org Toyota.
Not much to speak of at the front of the grid, as Baumann had everyone’s number all night, dominating to lead every lap and take the win, his second in a row. It would be our first-ever caution-free race, which did not benefit Brandon Smith, who qualified alongside and had similar pace, but had no chance to close the
