TUCSON, AZ   – Darrel Midgley finished fourth Saturday night in the Super Late Model Feature at Tucson Speedway.  “It was really an odd race,” says Midgley, “I could not run the bottom (of the track) to save my life.  The car just wouldn’t turn.  It was so weird.”  Midgley kicked off the night by qualifying third in the Northern Provincial Pipelines Ltd #81 Dodge.  “We used the exact same setup as the Chilly Willy race (in January).”  Midgley figures that the time of the day that the race was competed played a role.  “The Chilly Willy race was in the late afternoon.  This race was run at night.”  Drivers in Saturday nights Super Late Model Feature saw the green flag drop just before 11PM.  “There was a huge temperature swing.  It affected the race track and we unfortunately didn’t keep up with it.”


There was a session of Super Late Model Heat races that were run earlier in the evening.  “It’s been years since I ran a Heat race on pavement.”  The only Canadian in the field finished 6th in his Heat race.  “I didn’t want to tear anything up.  Cars were running three wide early and I didn’t want any of it.”  Midgleys fourth place finish in the Saturday night Feature was his third top-10 finish of 2020 at Tucson Speedway.  Sadly the winter race season has come to an end.  “Car is on the way home now.”  At this point in time Midgley does not know when he’ll be racing next.  The Sidney, British Columbia driver won’t be competing at Wenatchee Speedway the end of April.  “The way the Canadian dollar is right now its brutally expensive to race in the States.”
