Do you enjoy the highs or are you haunted by the pursuit of perfection? Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown, and all that stuff. Mark Barnhill seems unbothered by all of it. The Theodore, Ala., Sportsmen driver is a perfect three-for-three at Five Flags Speedway this season. He stacks wins like chips at a card table and his even-keeled demeanor is a true poker face despite facing a $250 bounty. Barnhill freely admits to needing to work on his No. 3 machine “a little more.” “It gets it done, I guess,” he added. Barnhill hope it gets it done come Friday at Five Flags when The Dock on Pensacola Beach Sportsmen race for 35 laps. The “Sportsmen Spectacular” will be the longest feature the class will run until the 52nd annual Snowball Derby [...]

That comes at the same time a larger pay check is ready for the winner of the feature extended to 35 laps.

Winslow Gives Fans Reasons to Roar With Outlaws Win on Meet the Drivers Night By Chuck Corder There were only four drivers who got to hoist checkered flags Friday night at Five Flags Speedway. But the number of champions around the half-mile asphalt oval ranged in the thousands. Before the night of racing got underway, throngs of fans spilled onto Five Flags’ abrasive asphalt for the track’s annual Meet the Drivers Night. Like ants filing across a checkerboard picnic blanket, the crowd made its way through the narrow gate under the flag stand. Once feet hit pavement, their heads twisted every which way, hunting what Friday night warrior they wanted to meet first. Once the green flag dropped on the night of racing, Faith Chapel Outlaws driver Bubba Winslow wasted no time thrilling those who he had just signed autographs and handed out hero cards.
