The ASA Pro Trucks will be in action this Saturday night at Magic Valley Speedway as Agri-Service Presents the two Main Events. Agri-Service has had a long time commitment to the ASA Pro Trucks. The Larson Racing / Agri-Service team has fielded as many as four trucks in a single event and has supported the series financially for several years. Alan Larson driver of the number 14 Agri-Service ASA Pro Truck says “This is just fun, It’s a great group of guys” Larson comes off an awesome finish at Rocky Mountain Raceway where he was challenging for the lead with less than ten laps to go. Dan Doan driver of the number 71 Larson Racing Pro truck says he feels so fortunate to be a part of a team that goes to the track and has fun. Doug Dugger is scheduled to field the Agri-Service number 1 Pro Truck Saturday night and feels like he’s starting to get a handle on what the truck wants from him and is looking forward to another night with his teammates.
Jerry Rice comes into the event as the point leader with a thirty-one point lead over Drew Reitsma. Both Rice and Reitsma have had solid finishes all season. “We just need to learn to Qualify better, If we can get that done I think we can get more points every race” said Reitsma. The ASA Pro Trucks invert from Qualifying and award passing points based on a drivers starting and finishing positions. Rice has had the ability to qualify well, start at or towards the rear and finish at or near the top every race.
Holding down third place in the points, Scott Luttmer comes into the double mains with what could be more confidence than any other driver in the series. Luttmer has the only win at Magic Valley in 2012 in the truck series and had the fastest lap in the last event at Rocky Mountain Raceway.
Hannah Newhouse sits fourth heading into Saturday night and will be sitting behind the wheel for both main events. With the unique scoring system the ASA Pro Trucks use Newhouse has gathered points with her father John behind the wheel at Meridian and in the last event at Rocky Mountain Raceway Rob Powers helped to keep Newhouse in the point hunt. “AS of today Hannah has raced half of the events. That is the requirement to be the “Primary” driver getting the points for the truck. She will have to maintain that percentage to keep her standings at the end of the season.” Said series Promoter Randy Kerr.
“I think we learned some stuff in the last race, we have really struggled this year and just can’t seem to get the consistency we have had in the past” is what Johnny Pierre had to say about the season so far. Pierre has finished second in points the last two years in a row and comes into Saturday night sitting fifth in the standings.
The green flag is scheduled to fall at 6:30 kicking off all the racing action at Magic Valley Speedway. Magic Valley Speedway is located one mile west of the Twin Falls Airport. The ASA Pro Trucks will be the featured division and are scheduled to race two main events.
