Today (Friday, July 7th) is Race Day! The American Ethanol Modified Tour presented by Allstar Performance are back in action just four days after the highlight successful Inaugural Merritt Allstar Performance Classic. The massive 0.525 mile slightly banked dirt oval of the Manistee County Fairgrounds, located west of Cadillac in Onekama, Michigan will host the YellowHose.com 30. This will be the first race of the season for the historic fairgrounds oval and the AEMODT cars and stars highlight the program.
Jacob Poel comes into the night on a three-race winning streak and will look to continue his impressive run through the inaugural AEMODT season. David Mielke and Joe Rokos are both hoping to stop Poel’s domination as Mielke, the inaugural winner in AEMODT at Thunderbird Raceway on May 27th trails Poel in the standings by 29 markers (514-485). Rokos, from near-by Interlochen, Michigan is hoping that the track closest to his race shop will spark a surge and propel him to his first ever AEMODT Feature win as he trails Mielke by 45 points. Chad Bauer, Brian Brindley and Dave Baker are fourth through sixth in the standings with Josh Scott still leading the way in the QuickCar Racing Products Rookie of the Year standings by a wide margin over Brian Przepiora
After the Manistee event, the AEMODT teams will take an extended vacation before returning to action over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Friday, September 1st at Mt. Pleasant Speedway in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan for the tours’ only appearance in Central Michigan. Then the following night, Saturday, September 2nd, the AEMODT’s third and final appearance of the season at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan.
