The Lucas Oil Pro Pulling league made their way to the Erie County Fair in Hamburg NY for a two night stand last weekend. 25 pullers from all across the country as well as some hometown stars took to the Hamburg dirt.
The Midnight Motorsports team took advantage of their multiple hooks in the class to help share information from the top of the class to the bottom. Bethany Nelson was fourth hook and jumped out to an early lead aboard her "Wild One Chevy. As the class went on her distance of 304.08 gave her a 12th place finish on the evening.
Jared Nelson would be next for team midnight and he drove his "Miles Beyond 300 Midnight Revenger". To a Solid 3rd place finish with his distance of 317.95
John Mumma continued to gain momentum as well in Hamburg as he hooked his "After Midnight Chevrolet". His distance of 326.74 would put him up in the number 4 position, just one spot below Jared.
Jeremy Nelson has been on a tear of late with his 1941 Dodge panel van known as the "Speedco Midnight Gambler" with recent wins on the tour in both Evansville, Indiana and Indianapolis, Indiana. Jeremy built on that momentum in the Empire State and came home with his 3rd win on the year. The winning distance was 325.21
Nelson moved himself into the number 3 position in Optima Batteries points with 3 hooks to go. Our own Bethany Nelson is still firmly atop the leaderboard in the points going into Wheatland Missouri.
The team has a 2 week break before being back on the road to Wheatland.
