    Default Austin Kirkpatrick

    Takes the win at Cherokee Speedway in the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series.

    The talk of the track though after the race, was the homemade built car that Kirkpatrick won with. Nobody had anything for him!

    He probably had the best car at Smoky Mtn the night before too.

    A big congrads to Austin (dumbass - inside joke)

    The racing world needs more of this, where a guy uses his brain, ingenuity, and talent to show you don't have to buy your speed and that "the little guy" can compete if he has the drive and determination to chase what he desires.

    I saw that Austin drove for snow brothers racing a little bit.....didn't realize that.

    Any chance you've got any epj/snow brothers car pics laying around? Wouldn't mind checking them out if available.
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    It's cool to see someone small time win, but man is that car ugly.

    I think I recall him saying he recently put a Clements in it, in his victory lane interview.

    I believe he has an engineering degree. Got to be a smart guy with practical knowledge. He had the car at Cherokee during the short track super series northeast modified race and the track allowed him to run practice laps during the evening, so he has been working on it and making it faster.

    Everytime we are at the same track, he'll ask to see photos of his car from hotlaps after the session if he sees me. He's pretty smart and a pretty good dude to boot.

    He should be the talk of the town. That car was bad fast, and the driver did a great job, even though he was humble enough to not take credit for the driving part. He never lost his cool or his rhythm, and job got the job done against one of the best in the business. He deserves a lot of praise for this performance. Are the T-shirts out yet?

    Honestly this is one of the biggest stories of the year in late model racing in my opinion. An underfunded guy who designs his own chassis in his garage comes to Cherokee and dominates some stout drivers, including one of the top three drivers of the year in Brandon Overton. I wish we would see him run more. I asked him when his next race is and he said Magnolia in a couple weeks for their big race.

    Yeah, I think if he hadn't started as far back as he did, he would have won that race too.
