10. Car-to- Car Contact is Becoming More Common
This is the best car -to-car contact of the season to date! Chelsea DeNofa just managed to connect with Tyler McQuarrie wheel-to- wheel, throwing him airborne. Do you remember the accident that happened when these guys met at Wall Speedway in 2012? In case you don’t, here is the video. Quite a bit of other car -to-car contact happened this weekend, including some nice banging around with Matt Field and Chris Forsberg in the Final Four. Keep an eye on this to be a theme through 2014.
9. Matt Field Deserves a Tip of the Hat
I will never forget the day the world discovered Matt Field as a serious American drifter. It was back at Irwindale Speedway when he sent Daigo Saito into a two OMT battle before finally losing to Saito. Something interesting I have noticed since then is Field does exceptionally well at new tracks where all drivers start without data. Look back to 2013 at Texas Motor Speedway and this weekend at Homestead. This tells me, as he drives these tracks and learns what he needs to make things work, he will be a championship contender.
