If we just jump in a car not knowing much about racing and try to turn laps we are not going to get far. Pretty soon the wall is going to get up close and personal with you. You can be a long time fan and attend hundreds of races. Maybe you have even been in the pits and sat in a car but it is a huge difference to drive one. Even one of the guys I talked to this week at Rockford said it was not bad out on the track alone but knew it was going to be much more challenging once they were side by side racing. I have heard plenty of fans talk about how the driver could have or they could have but that is funny when you get them behind the wheel then things are not quite the same.

I say this because I was thinking about this all week. A fan can be blind to a lot of things in a race car and/ or a race.

No matter what, Jeff Holtz was in the right place at the right time Sunday afternoon.

The Franksville Wisconsin driver used a front row starting spot to help propel himself to the lead, then found himself at the head of the pack as rain showers stalled the 50 lap Spring Classic at Rockford Holtz is Big Fish at RockfodHoltz is Big Fish at RockfodSpeedway on lap 29. When the showers did not subside, the race was called complete, awarding Holtz his first-ever Mid-American Series triumph.

Multi-time Rockford winner and former Mid-American Series champion Jeremy Spoonmore started the race from the pole and he, along with second place starting Holtz, led the field to the green flag. The two drivers went toe-to-toe in the race’s opening paces, with Holtz finally slipping ahead of Spoonmore for the lead. Spoomore settled into second, pursued by fellow Mid-American champion Lyle Nowak and former Rockford winner Kenny Joosten.

When the Mid-American Stock Car Series rolls into Rockford Speedway this Sunday afternoon for the 37th Annual Spring Classic, the list of challengers will be as deep as it has been in recent memory, with at least five former series champions planning on running the opening race of the 2014 season!
Leading the charge is defending Mid-American Series champion Brad Keith. The West Bend Wisconsin resident collected his first-ever series championship last year, beating 2012 Series champion Jeremy Spoonmore by 74 markers. Keith was a multi-time winner during last year’s championship campaign, racing to victory lane at Hawkeye Downs in May and Jefferson in June.

Speaking of Spoonmore, the 2012 Mid-American Stock Car Series champion has also entered for Rockford, a track where he has found much success. Spoonmore, a native of Somonauk Illinois, is a multi-time winner of the Mid-Am National Short Track Championship race in the fall at Rockford, and finished runner-up in the event last September.
