The young Daniels continues to impress with another stellar performance. Although he struggled a little bit earlier in the day qualifying fifth, he bounced back to once again win his Semi. In the Main Event, it looked to be a repeat of the day before. This time though, his competitor was able to make good use of the high line to maintain his lead. Daniels kept pushing in second, going high to low into Turn 1 and patiently waited to make his move. On the final lap, he made the pass in Turn 3 and scored his fifth-straight win, seventh of the season, to bring him within five points of clinching the championship next weekend.
On the other side of the coin, his teammate Rush had a really tough day. The veteran was struggling to find his comfort zone in the challenging conditions and qualified 12th. He did what he could to make gains in his Semi, but on the final lap, he went down into Turn 3 and was unable to finish the race. Rush took his provisional to make the Main Event and advanced to 15th from the final grid spot but ultimately finished 16th.
The continued challenge of the slick track conditions once again proved to deliver a tough weekend for both AFT SuperTwins riders. Beach got another great start in the Main Event, coming from the fourth row to 10th. He was in the mix and did what he could to maintain the position but ultimately dropped back to 15th. Carlile was 15th at the start from the back row, but like his teammate, lost position in the challenging conditions and ended the day 16th.
Next weekend, the Estenson Racing team heads to Charlotte, North Carolina, for the penultimate round of the Progressive American Flat Track Championship on October 9-10 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
