NDRA: Peeples Wins "Triple Crown" Final at Princeton

Series media

PRINCETON, W.V. - May 30. After a long and stressful but exciting night at Wythe Raceway the previous evening, the Fastrak teams moved to West Virginia’s Princeton Speedway for Sunday’s finale of the 2011 Triple Crown, and Keeny Peeples was the best of the 39 race teams that turned out.  

 Local standout Mike Faykus captured the pole for the 40 lap feature, but Brandon Umberger vaulted into the lead from the outside pole, followed by Faykus and Aaron Barley.  The d-shaped West Virginia track provided fans with three-wide action at each end of the speedway.  Chris Meadows quickly made his presence felt as he joined the lead group making it a four-way battle for the lead.  Umberger and Meadows traded the lead on consecutive double file restarts, while Lee Cooper and Faykus continued to battle behind the lead trio. 

Near the midway point, Umberger and Barley battled into turn three and Umberger’s car broke loose.  That resulted in both he and Barley going around.  With two strong competitors restarting from the tail of the field, Peeples entered the battle for the lead.  Peeples vaulted around Meadows on the ensuing double file restart and held off the challenges from Meadows and Faykus for the duration of the event to take down the third leg of the FASTRAK 2011 Triple Crown.

Via his three top five finishes, Greer, South Carolina’s Lee Cooper edged out Inman, South Carolina’s David Smith by one point for the King’s Crown and 2011 Triple Crown Championship.
