Local Drivers Won 11 of 13 Races at Fall Nationals

Home track, home field advantage, or just plain ole home cooking, call it what you will, no matter how you slice it, the NCQMA drivers took care of business on Saturday in the final day of the 10th Annual Carolina Fall Nationals in Salisbury. I guess the NCQMA member drivers can really call it “our house” and back those words up after taking 11 of 13 “A” Mains on Saturday.

Alex Reling got things started for the locals when he won the first race of the day, the 20-lap Red Rookie feature. Reling pulled away at the drop of the green and was able to fend off Harrison Moffitt for the victory. Moffitt challenged Reling midway through the race and made the pass, only to have Reling make the crossover move to regain the lead. Reling actually started lapping cars after eights circuits, and again encountered slower cars with just four laps remaining, but he handled the traffic like a veteran and never missed a beat on the way to the checkers. Moffitt crossed the stripe in second and Colton Barsness came home third.
