  • Doug Keller takes second at Springfield ARCA

    Always fun to watch guys you used to race with do well on TV - at least on Speed News. That wiggling, aggressive move he made to take the lead looked VERY familiar to me...

    Very impressive. Now I wish him some good luck in the truck series.

    And I hope Re/Max puts the clip on their website soon, I really want to see them on the dirt

      It just goes to show ya-

      Dirt is the great equalizer. It can make a good driver bad, but it won't make a bad driver good. Same with equipment.

      Not a bad run at all for a guy who is competing against a team with all Winston Cup equipment, while Doug has nothing near that.

      Doug ought to win one of these things one day, he's come so close. And I think had he won Sunday, it would have been more popular than Kimmel's win.

      There were several boos, which I guess comes with winning all the time.

        Had to be from winning all the time, because, from all indications, Frank Kimmel is one nice guy.

          He's a super guy.

          And Keller is constant comedy to be around.

          Incidentally, his cars are ex-Gibbs stuff from a couple of years ago. Not great, but not bad. The cars are actually good enough to be top-10 or top-5 ARCA superspeedway (non-plate) cars, but Doug doesn't have the bucks to run the superspeedway.

            Frank is a super guy-none better.

            However, had Bob Strait won that race, the house would have been up for grabs.

            That's what makes these races so special-local guys can get some decent equipment, and run up at the front. It brings people in the stands.

            Shame the IRL hasn't figured that part of the equation out.
