TQ midget racing always seems to be exciting at Three Palms Speedway. Saturday night’s racing went right along with that idea again.

Mike Belusar from nearby Port Charlotte came to almost a complete stop in turn three with four laps to go. The flagman threw the caution flag. That sent Belusar to end of the lead lap cars. He made a hard fought battle with Mike Nelson in his Ward Seaford Attorney At Law sponsored TQ Midget. They swapped the lead several times in the waning stages. Belusar took the lead for good coming out of turn two on the final lap but Nelson charged back in turn three and hooked Belusar’s back bumper almost spinning him. Mike Belusar held on for the win of Mike Nelson.

“They made me work for that win,” Belusar said.  “He hooked me down in the corner and I thought I was going to lose it but I held on.”

Pro Trucks were also on the card Saturday night at Three Palms Speedway in Punta Gorda, Florida. Stuart Vandevender from Fort Myers set fast time and went on to wire the field in the 25 lap feature event. Cody Martell was second. Sebring’s Ronnie Brought Jr brought home third place.

“I have been coming here a long time,” Vandevender said in victory lane.  “This is my home track. I am glad it is back open.”

Kristen Milthaler, who hails from North Port Florida, in her Dean’s Tree Service sponsored car with Twins Racing, drove her brothers Chris’s car to victory in the Outlaw 4’s. She was very excited in victory lane as the last time here racing she crashed and was taken to the hospital for a checkup.

Defending Outlaw Modified Champion Mike Endee took home both features at Three Palms Speedway. He led wire to wire in the first feature. In the second feature he had to come from behind to take the checkers. Billy Campbell finished second in both features. All the way from Wilmington North Carolina Cliff Willman came home third in both features.

Three Palms Speedway will be back in action on Saturday night at 5pm.
