In the June 23rd edition of Spencer Lewis’ Short Track Notebook, we ride along with Delaware Speedway Truck competitor Rick Verberne, chat with Mini Stock up-and-comer Scott Simmons and ask rising stars Branden Verhoeven and Shae Gemmell about their classic encounter in Round 1 of the APC Six Pack Super Stock Series at Delaware Speedway on June 20th.
Second-generation star Branden Verhoeven swept both ends of Friday’s Super Stock twin feature event, in Round 1 of the APC Six Pack Series, pitting Delaware Speedway regulars against their Flamboro counterparts. We caught up post-race with the 17-year old, and asked about his breakout performance, his frequent battles with fellow rising star Shae Gemmell and his plans for his sophomore campaign at Delaware.

Rising star Scott Simmons (above, by Thompson Photography) has had an impressive year thus far in Flamboro Speedway’s Mini Stock division.
