It was hard to remember if we were running at Daytona or Las Vegas, but the slot-cars were fun to battle with. Put a rock on the throttle and aim for the bottom. Howard Wildrick pushed Rob Partridge past Bryan Lee and John Richards in the closing laps. Kevin Yates made it three trucks at the front, but Partridge held on to become the third winner in three races so far.
Rob Partridge won at Bristol on Sunday 03/09 in the NSR Nortex Early Bird Series at GTRL. Another great race in the trucks at Bristol. Some people might have
thought we'd have tire issues but all went better than expected. 15
drivers showed up for the Battle at Bristol and a battle it was.
Congrats to Rob Partridge for the win, followed in second by Bill
Holland, John Richards, Bryan Lee and Floyd Broadley rounding up the top
five. Rob Partridge beat John Richards by 5 points in part one of the
season, Rob Cobb in 3rd, Brian Kenney 4th and Dean Geer in 5th. Next
week all is reset and the chase format will start at Talladega. We'll
also run match ups for the play offs. Great race at Bristol by all
drivers but also a great Early Birds Season so far. See ya all next
The last 10 laps featured the top 2 rubbing door panels until Richards used the apron to clear Buchanan going into turn 1. Nine cars took the wave-around when the caution flew during the second pit cycle of a 50 lap run. Cars seem to get bunched up at Vegas, but the field did a great job managing the three-wides to finish without too much bent sheet metal.
