A pair of aces put Tyler Frye on the pole for Saturday’s Arnold Motor Supply Race of Champions for Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods
The five qualifiers from each of two Monday heats sat down to a friendly game of high card before racing resumed Tuesday. Frye and Dvorak both drew aces their first time around; Frye’s second ace gave him the inside row one start. Clinton Luellen and tad Reutzel make up row two. Shay Woods and Nathan Chodur are in row three, Eric Flander and Dylan Book in row four. Lining up in the back are Greg Sidles and Scott Davis. * His first full season has already produced 22 feature wins and track titles at Fairmont and Jackson. Dustin Larson is hoping for an even bigger championship when his week at Boone Speedway is complete. The Rushmore, Minn., driver stayed in charge from start to finish of his opening night qualifying feature to earn the pole in Saturday’s main event for Hobby Stocks.” “The car worked really good for me. It worked especially good on the bottom,” he said Tuesday afternoon, before taking his turn on the track in Arnold Motor Supply Race of Champion qualifying. “We didn’t make any changes from earlier in the evening. We ran the same setup we had for our heat race.” Larson qualified twice for last year’s Super Nationals field, getting bounced from the tech tent the first night. After resolving that issue, he started the main event from 21st and finished a credible ninth. “This is going to be the best season I’ve ever had,” said Larson, who plans to return to the class next year. “I enjoy the competition. I’m having a lot of fun in a Hobby Stock.” * Day two of qualifying saw a handful of new entries in both the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Hobby Stock divisions. The new Northern SportMod car count record has grown to 181, up from 165 last year. Hobby Stock entries now number 139. More than 200 Modifieds and 130 Stock Cars have already gone through tech. First day numbers will be determined Wednesday, when those divisions begin qualifying for Saturday main events.
