Carroll Holds Off Laird
DOVER – Drew Carroll has only made five starts in the Coastal Safety Auditors Grand National Series this season and was able to land his first win on Monday in the Delaware 100. Carroll won the Savage Spinners Pole and held off newcomer JD Laird in the 100 lap event.
Laird made his first Premier Racing League start on Monday and came home with an impressive 2nd place finish. It is still unclear what Laird’s future plans are with the series. Chase drivers Jeff Ward, who led the most laps, and Tommy Rhyne came home in 3rd and 5th in the first race in the Round of 12. Troy Haydt joined the party and came home with a 4th place finish. Fellow Chase drivers Jake Wright and James Krahula were also able to find Top 10 finishes on Monday.
The biggest moment in the Championship happened on Lap 89 when Dan Murray made contact with Brian Yaczik off of Turn 4 sending Yaczik hard into the inside wall. Yaczik finished in 23rd and is tied with Woodrow Mahan for the final transfer spot after the first race in the Round of 12. Don Runkle Jr., Jody Green, and Paul Pepper all see themselves on the outside looking in after Dover.
The Coastal Safety Auditors Grand National Series will make its second stop at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on October 3rd for Race #2 of the Round of 12. The event will be broadcast on the Global Sim Racing Channel at 9:10pm EST. For more information on the Premier Racing League visit www.PremierRacingLeague.com or www.facebook.com/PremierRacingLeague.
