Race Notes:

· Mike Lack leads the Husarsbilt Cup championship by eight points over Bill Black coming into the Tukey Trot where he is the defending race and pole winner.

· Ev Kamikawa has taken home the most turkeys with six wins, but he also has been the runner-up seven times in his 24 starts in this event. Multi-time winners outscore one-time winners at the Turkey Trot 24-5. Only Dave Austin, John Shea, Jim Kaehny, Larry Rotter and Matt Hayek have won the race a single time.

· There have been five different winners in the first five events of this season, this last happened in 2020, when Dan Margetta became the first repeat winner of that season winning at his home track to take the turkey.

· STATS WATCH: Steve Rist joined Joe Heitz, Tom Spehert and John Baas in the three careers wins department, that’s a tie for 21st on the all-time list. Brad Core’s repeat pole position at the Black Track equals Pete Dorn and Phil Marich, all with two poles, tied for 23rd all-time. Core also scored his second heat win and final four appearance moving to 28th and 31st on those respective lists. First time racer Andy Black won a heat, the first time any driver has done that in the 30 year history of the series, only Dave Rosno made a final four appearance in his debut, at the Shrine Cup 9/8/1994. Mike Kristof moves past series founder and HOFer Phil Cianciola on the all-time laps list to fifth and Matt Hayek passes Larry Rotter to move to seventh with just over 40,000 turned.
