This past Friday night at Mohawk the Go Nuclear Late Models highlighted the nights action along with the 358 Modifieds, Sportsman and Bandits. With the presence of the World of Outlaw Late Models in the area, the field for the Go Nuclear Series was the toughest ever.

The Go Nuclear Late Models were set to go for their 2nd event of the Northern tour. World of Outlaw Late Models Star Chub Frank drew the pole and quickly raced out to the early lead with AJ Kingsley, James Jameson, Adam Turner and Clint Smith Making up the top 5. Alan Chapman brought out the first and only caution of the night as he spun in turn 4.

On the restart Chub Frank continued his great run as many of the top series regulars had spirited battles with World of Outlaw Late Model Series regulars. Adam Turner and Clint Smith put on a great show for the 4th spot as they battled side by side for the next 5 laps until Smith took the position away for good on lap 10. Frank had built up over a straightaway advantage by halfway with Smith, Kingsley, Dale Caswell and Turner rounding out the top 5.

By lap 17 Chub Frank entered into heavy lapped traffic but was able to move his way through and hold a comfortable advantage over a fast closing Clint Smith. Back in the top 5 Billy Eisle, the North Tour opening winner at Can-Am, charged from 11th on the grid to break into the top 5 on lap 22. However nobody had anything left for "Chubzilla" as he scored his first ever Go Nuclear Late Model Series win over fellow WOO Late Model regular Clint Smith. AJ Kingsley had a solid drive all night finishing 3rd with Caswell and Billy Eisle rounding out the top 5.
