Most racing division titles still up for grabs

Four races slated over next three weekends

It's coming down to the wire in most racing divisions of the Columbia County Racing Association, but a few divisions have some pretty strong leaders.

The association runs eight divisions. The top level is the Sportsman Division, while 4-cylinder (Mini Stocks), Street Stocks and Modifieds have been pretty strong.

The CCRA will hold four races through Labor Day week. They race this Saturday, make up a rain-out date on Aug. 27, and then hold a two-day event on Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day. The championship conclusion is slated for Saturday, Sept. 17.

Curt Nusom of Gresham is leading the Sportsman Division by 41 points over Dan Smith. Bud Russell of St. Helens is 62 points behind the leader in third.

The Beehler family of St. Helens continues to dominate the 4-Cylinder Division. Adam Beehler has just a narrow lead over his nephew Joel, just six points, and Brad Beehler is in third, 69 points off the lead.

John Nusom of Gresham continues to lead the Street Stock Division, but Brad Martin of St. Helens has moved into second, 26 points back. Justin McMullen of Deer Island is now in third.

Doug Davenport of Vernonia has the lead in Modified Division, but just by 17 points ahead of Jeremy Martin of St. Helens. Davenport led by just three going into the last race.

Dave Walters of Gresham has all but wrapped up the Pacific Mini Sprints Division. He could probably win the track title just by showing up at the next races. He leads second place by 185 points.

In the Women's Division, Kathy McMullen of Deer Island leads Jenae Frehlich of St. Helens, but just by 23 points.

Racing resumes again this Saturday at the River City Speedway at the Columbia County Fairgrounds.
