Shelnut Knows how to get it done with four wins in a row

With a full night of racing on tap at the Punta Gorda Speedway and fun things for the kids, the fans and kids were not disappointed. Right before the features started was the parade lap, speedway owner Kevin Williams had a special guest he drove around the track, Mr and Mrs Claus.

While Jr Fan Club leader Jessica had the kids club all making their own Christmas Ornaments to take home and hang on their trees.

The night started off with the Cowboy Cadillacs that always put on a good show and tonight was no different. While Jeff Deeble of Port Charlotte jumped to the early lead and never looked back to take the win. With no cautions it was hard for Mike Bialecki to catch Deeble as he gave it his all and finished second. Coming home in the third spot was Mike True.

The Legend cars came out for their feature and while Mike Endee of North Port led the first four laps,

it was Mike Verhaagh that got by him and never looked back. Mike Verhaagh was the winner with Tony Steinbuck second and Carl Haag third.

It was a sad night for the T.Q. Midgets as they raced with heavy hearts for a fellow driver and friend that had passed away. John Ciolino had passed away and the T.Q drivers went through the stands during the parade lap to collect money for the family and did the missing man formation. After the featured race that saw Chris Gimmler as the winner, Rob Kohler second and Jimmy Wilkens III third, all the drivers and crew were in the winners circle.
