Overlooked is the awesome show all the support divisions put on as well. The non-wing 600 Mini-Sprint feature was very entertaining. Although Bryan Clauson picked up the win, Aaron Davis of Sharpsville made it interesting for the defending USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series champ.Then the Street Stock feature on Friday was the best the track has seen in years. Scott Hufford picked up the win but by and large, the racing was riveting for all 20 laps. More often than not the leaders were running three and four wide, slicing and dicing.Then to top it off, Jeremy VanNess' last-corner, last-lap pass coming to the checkered flag was about as thrilling as one could ask for.The final thing was the attention to detail and track preparation all three nights.It's one thing to have a racy track in Indiana one night a week, but to do it three straight nights with the sun beating down on the surface two of those nights is unthinkable. Reese O'Connor and "Rowdy" Phil Doud deserve pats on their backs and thank yous come Sunday night when the track hosts it final regular-season raceBefore the feature even pushed off Saturday, Goodman was talking about how the track was going to make Smackdown III even better yet. Now, thanks to Dean Mills of Mills Video Productions and Brandon Tooley with his YouTube posts, we can all watch what just transpired and count down the days until next year's version is here.
