Keepin’ it Short – A family affair at Charlotte Motor Speedway

The Big Money 100 is in the books with Tyler Green taking the win over most of the best Legend drivers in the country Tuesday night. Tyler is the son of Mark Green and nephew of Jeff and David. Green has been in the top 10 the last two years of the big money races at Charlotte but has not been able to make it to victory lane before this year. Green is one of four members of the Green clan who is competing at Charlotte this Summer but, at least for now, has the bragging rights among all of them.

Jeff Green, the 2000 Nationwide Series champion, competes in the Masters division at the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout with his brother Mark. Jeff was the Masters division champion in 2011 but this season is not running the full series so he will not repeat as the title holder. Mark has missed a week of the Shootout already so it will be tough for him to make it to the top of the standings.

Along with Tyler, Austin Green, Tyler’s cousin and David Green’s son is working his way into racing in the Bandolero divisions. Austin has been running in Bandoleros three years and is currently leading the Bandits division with two wins during the 2012 Jack in the Box Summer Shootout.

While Austin is leading the point standings in Bandoleros, it is big cousin Tyler who just notched the family’s biggest INEX racing victory. Tyler brought home a $25,000 check for the win in the Big Money 100 that may help continue his driving career or may be used as a distraction to racing. Asked after the Victory Lane celebration on Tuesday night, Green told Frontstretch.com “We’ve been putting everything into racing for years. Maybe we’ll take this money and buy a boat.”

The Greens run their INEX racing out of TyMark racing, which is a combination of Tyler and Mark Greens’ names. TyMark also helps out other race teams who are competing in INEX racing. Dylan Smith, who is a Rev Racing employee and is trying to make a name for himself in racing has used the Greens’ help to get his Legend car program off of the ground this year and is improving weekly in the Semi-Pro division.

Racing is in the blood, either of people or entire families. There is no question that it runs deep in the veins of the Greens. While the professional driving careers of Jeff, Mark and David have come to an end, they’re still spending time at the race track and passing along their knowledge to their kids and others. Austin and Tyler are in the process of developing their careers and, if the right break comes their way, just might be able to follow in their parents footsteps to compete on the national stage. If not, they’re going to keep getting after it in the INEX ranks at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout.

Whelen All-American Points Battle

After leading the points since the very first standings were posted in May, Anthony Anders has finally lost his hold on the top spot. Anders’ lack of wins caught up with him and he slid to fourth in the standings with 565 points. Replacing Anders at the top of the list is Ted Christopher, the 2001 Whelen All-American Champion who has clawed his way out front with 604 total points. Christopher has already maxed out on races and in fact has the maximum number of top 5s so gaining points from here is going to be difficult. Nate Monteith continues to ride the resurgence of Kingsport Speedway to second in points with six wins and 586 points.

One driver you don’t see in the top 10 is Lee Pulliam. Motor Mile called off their racing program last weekend when the heavy weather moved through the area so Pulliam did not get a race in. He’s already made up for it this week with wins at South Boston and Caraway. He’s also heading to Deac McCaskill’s home track of Southern National on Saturday to try and notch three wins in one week. McCaskill will not make it easy on him but Pulliam very well could make a jump from 11th to the top 5 depending on his luck Saturday.

ASA National Points Race

Shelby Stroebel continues to dominate at Meridian Speedway in the Modifieds. Stroebel has yet to lose a race in a Modified at his home track. At I-44 Lebanon Speedway Mike Slone is maintaining a slim lead over Matt Walace. Unfortunately for the I-44 gang this week their schedule has been postponed due to the excessive heat that is gripping the Midwest. In the Eastern Region Barry Beggarly, the defending National Champion, scored his second win of the season at Ace Speedway which gives him an average of 2.3163, which puts him third overall in the National Championship Points race.

East Region Top Five

1. Barry Beggarly 2.3163
2. Dustin Rumley 2.2663
3. Speedy Faucette 2.1499
