On Thursday night, the TUNDRA Super Sim Series headed out to “sin city” to take on The Bullring at Las Vegas for a 125-lap race in the Midwest Powersource 125. A total of 37 cars would attempt to qualify for the feature, with 30 of them making the grid.
Race Winner – David Krikorian broke a 25-race winless streak in the Super Sim Series by holding off Colin Allman late in the race for his 28th career SARA victory.
Race Summary – David Krikorian took the lead away from Dalton Collins on lap 20, and would maintain about a one-second gap over Joe Schaffer Jr. throughout the race at the front of the field. However it was Colin Allman that was making a charge through the field after starting dead last, and in the late stages Allman would begin to apply the pressure. With the laps winding down, Allman was able to get to the rear bumper of Krikorian for the lead with three to go, but a late caution would force the race to end under the checkered and yellow flags, helping “DK” hold on for his 9th Super Sim Series victory.
Pole Award – Joe Schaffer Jr. beat out rookie Ashton Crowder by .001 seconds with a lap of 13.961 seconds for the pole.
Hard Charger – Jason Miller once again had to come from the back and moved up into the top fifteen, finishing 12th to gain 15 spots on the night.
Rookie of the Race – Jimmy Mullis made his first league start and ran inside the top five all night before finishing in the 4th spot.
Title Fight – Entering the night Bill Martin led the points but finished back in 8th, while Joe Schaffer Jr. finished on the podium allowing Schaffer to take the points lead.
Up Next – The TUNDRA Super Sim Series will head back to the east coast for a 100-lap race at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the Downeast Chassisworx 100.
