Cole Timm Sends a Huge Message To The Super Late Model Community

Cole Timm Winner

Lucama, NC – Cole Timm, of Charlotte North Carolina, sent a massive statement this past Saturday night at Southern National Motorsports Park to the entire Super Late Model community. Timm, who has run regular races in the PASS South series last year as well as this year, had a bit of a disagreement with his regular sanctioning body so he figured why not give this brand new series a shot. Well folks, this boys idea of trying things out are just a bit different than yours and my idea of “trying something out.”

Not really sure if Timm came to SNMP to have a good time, test a new series out or just flat out prove a point! “I consider myself just a small time racer,” Timm said during his victory lane celebration. “Just to be able to beat some of these bigger name guys on this CARS Tour means a lot to me!”

Shouldn’t come as to much of a surprise however, I say that lightly and with out sounding cocking but those hopes are set when your number sits alone on top of the leader board both practice sessions. Not to mention go out for qualifying and be the only car to break into the 14-second lap time, a 14.788 (97.376 MPH) to be exact! More than two tenths faster than the Kyle Busch Motorsports, yes I said that right folks, the KBM #51 of Christopher Bell.

These two in fact would spend most of the feature swapping the lead and pulling away from each other. Either lap traffic or the caution flag would bunch the two up allowing for what turned out to be some good racing for the top spot. Bell took the lead from the pole sitter early on a great jump when the green flag was displayed. Timm would fall back just a bit but never really get to far away as the top ten to fifteen drivers at one point were only separated by half a car length or just a tad bit more.

Timm would make what was the winning pass back on lap 93 after he and Bell spent just a couple laps door to door and a lap 91 restart. Once Timm was able to clear the #51 machine of Bell it was like he hit the cruise control button and just focused on working his way through the lap traffic. The victory was just Timm’s second win in a Super Late Model, his first comming from a Pro All-Star Series race at South Boston Speedway last June… hmmm a race we were in attendance, Cole Timm 2-0 when TWR is in town!

Kyle Grissom, who had an excellent charge through the field in my eyes, was able to bring his machine home P3. This coming off of what I thought was a great late race power move by the twenty-six machine. Bubba Pollard would have to settle for the fourth position while Anderson Bowen just hung on to a top five finish.

We would like to take a moment to give the #2 of Trevor Noles a special shout out as he is the very first driver to win one of our Touring Series contingency awards for his efforts and determination through out the night Noles took the green flag in the 26th position and because he was able to work his way up to P8 (a gain of 18 spots) this makes Trevor Noles The Weekly Racers: Biggest Mover of the Race!

The CARS Tour Series hits the track again in three weeks, destination… Orange County Speedway. April 18th will be just their second of ten scheduled races through out this spring and summer. For more information on that event check out their website at, http://www.carsracingtour.com
