- For the second time in his career, Coleman Pressley wins the Fall Brawl at Hickory Motor Speedway (NC). The last time was back in 2009 when he was an up and coming driver at the historic North Carolina oval. Pressley then made it to the NASCAR Cup Series as a spotter for Joey Logano. The cool part about this story was that Logano spotted for Pressley, reversing the roles one week after they claimed the NASCAR Cup Series crown.

- Pressley won at Hickory for the 10th time in his career and became the 15th different winner this season at Hickory. Pressley beat out Charlie Watson for the win. Doug Barnes Jr. set fast time for the race, making the 21st different fast time winner this year. What a season at Hickory Motor Speedway.
- Anthony Nocella landed in Islip 300 victory Lane on Saturday night at Riverhead Raceway (NY). Nocella became the fifth different driver to win this race with Ryan Preece being the only guy to win it more then once. As we mentioned last week of the success of Matt Hirshman, this is one Modified race that he has not won.
- NASCAR Xfinity series regular Bayley Currey made the most of his trip to Houston Motorsports Park over the weekend. The Texas native won the 30-lap Modified feature, and was second in the 50-lap Pro Truck feature to John Heil. His two podium runs could not match that of John Heil who also won the Outlaw race as well.
- The battle for the SRL Southwest Tour Series at Irwindale Speedway (CA) came down to one spot as Jeremy Doss won the battle, but Jacob Gomes won the war by finishing third and winning the points title by the narrowest of margins. The two point margin was the narrowest margin since 2004. Gomes is only the third driver in the series to win more than one title.

- On the Pro Late Model side at Irwindale, Seth Wise came in as the point leader and won the 60-lap finale to win the title. It was only the second win of the year for Wise, but 10 overall top five runs was enough to land him the hardware at season's end.
- We think that the $52,052 winner's share was one of the largest purses paid out last year in Georgia at the Peach State Classic event at Senoia Raceway (GA). The Pollard family owned track one upped that this year by paying $53,053 to Ricky Thornton, Jr.
- Friday night is ok for Kyle Bronson who won last year’s Peach State Classic race worth $20,000. He had not won since that night and pulled into Senoia and won the Friday 'Peach Bowl' for another $20,000. Not a bad place to be two-for-two at.
- Looking ahead to 2023, we are already excited to see that the ACT Late Models will be back at Stafford Motor Speedway (CT) for the first time since 1985. What show it was on that day as Robbie Crouch came from 19th to win it with Chuck Bown coming from 16th for second and Randy LaJoie starting 20th before finishing third. 38 years later ACT will return to the Stafford track.
