SPOKANE, Washington — Jeff Fenton, driver of the Lewiston based, Grumpy’s Restaurant Chevrolet, finds himself sitting in a position that only one other driver has seen since the end of 2006, at the top of the Inland Northwest Superstock Association (INSSA) Super Late Model point’s standings. Fenton has posted top four finishes in all of this season’s events, and is definitely holding the “most consistent” title.
While Fenton has been Mr. Consistent, many of his top ten competitors have either posted DNF’s or weren’t able to make the show. Two-time champion, Dave Garber, in his Concrete Cutters Pontiac, has been slowly reeling Fenton in while making his bid for a third title. Garber, coming off back-to-back wins, had a mechanical failure at the season opener and had to watch from the sidelines.
Greg McKinley in his second full season of INSSA competition sits currently second in points over Garber, with Jeff Little third. Rookie of the year contenders, Kameron McKeehan and Andrew Zimmer, separated by only 6 points, are running fifth and sixth respectively.
After a trip to the super half mile oval at Spokane County Raceway, the drivers are ready to head back to the quarter mile at State Line Speedway this Saturday night, where they’ve called home for the past six seasons. Also on tap are the Hobby Stocks. Qualifying at 6:00 and racing at 7:00.
