Carr Shines At Early Thaw Opener

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. — Over 20 years ago, promoter Ernie Mincy started the Early Thaw series in an attempt to get Midwest drivers to race in January in Arizona. Late models had some difficulty getting their main started with tangles into turn one on the first try and again in turn four. Once underway, Dustin Bluhm led with Ricky Weiss closing, eventually using an outside pass in turn two to lead the last 17 laps of 30 for the win. Anthony Madrid then made a similar error in turn four a few laps later when he and a lapped car bumped. When Carr used the top of turn four, he was able to gain the lead and pulled away to claim the win over Fouquette and 10th starting Lucas Rodin. Ninth starting Clay Erickson used a turn four pass to win over Joe Docekal and Matt Sanders.
