Caddell On Top At Vegas
Johnathon Caddell rolled the dice at Vegas and passes Matt LaCross late in the going to take the win in the NorthernTool.com 200 in the AdvoCare Cup Series event Tuesday night. Caddell lead a race high 49 laps in the event after starting 10th. Scott Eckrich won the Savage Spinners Pole Award for Vegas and lead the first 30 laps of the event before a speeding penalty and contact with Matt LaCross while trying to serve that penalty would end his day.
Jake Wright and Johnathon Caddell would trade the lead during the middle parts of the event before Jake fell back to a 4th place finish. Matt LaCross took 2 tires towards the end of the event which would get him in the lead before the 4 tires of Caddell came out on top. Matt would end up in 2nd with Tommy Rhyne coming home in 3rd.
Johnathon Caddell is the next driver to lock himself into the AdvoCare Chase at the end of the season, joining Dan Murray and James Krahula. Jake Wright and Steve Gottschalk round out the Top 5. Rich Jette and Rick Savage are currently tied for the bubble position in the standings.
Next week the AdvoCare Cup Series heads to Phoenix for the Race 4 Laura Lymphoma Awareness 250k. Cars will be sporting Race 4 Laura logos on many on their cars while we try to raise money for one of our own in the sim racing community.
