Fast Lane: Drivers don’t mind the cold to close out 2019 and prepare for a new season; Stutts picks up first win at Port Royal

YORK -- After eight months of racing, drivers from all divisions try to squeeze in every last opportunity to hit the dirt.

The fall temperatures didn't effect the drivers as they take to the track for the final test and tune at BAPS.

"The wind is a big problem with the race cars. You can definitely feel it pushing it around but this cold weather, just makes the engines run better," said Richard Phillip, Street Stocks driver.

358 Drivers like Ashley Cappetta, are already looking towards the 2020 season. Taking some reps with the new 5 by 5 wing.

"Just trying to get a feel of what to expect next year. Trying different shocks. We run Factory Kahne shocks. We have oil and gas shocks, so just trying different things to see what I'm most comfortable with for next year," said Cappetta.

Others take to BAPS for just the second time in their young career. Sixteen-year-old Branstin Shue wants to move up from the micros to the 305 Sprints.

"I want to get some seat time in the new car before 2020. That just makes it so much better for the end. If we wouldn't have started until next year, I wouldn't know what I know now," said  Shue.

BAPS also had some racing action this weekend.

Landon Price passes Alex Bright on the ninth lap to take the 20-lap feature, Central Pa. Legends Josh Schrum also took the checkered flag, Adam Campbell tops the 4-cylinder main event and Gene Wrightstone lead all laps of the Penn-Mar Vintage Car A-Main.
