“Just let me get out front and I’ll be alright.”
That’s what Michael Page told FNN Motorsports prior to the start of the 26th Annual Ice Bowl at Talladega Short Track Sunday evening.
Page had enjoyed a flawless weekend, earning fast time honors Saturday (13.589) in his Sweet-Bloomquist car, then going on to earn the feature pole by winning his heat race later in the day.
“Just stay calm,” said Page.
“I knew getting out front and running a straight line as much as possible was going to be key. You didn’t want to burn the tires up working around lap traffic and we were able to do that tonight.”
Donald McIntosh came home second followed closely in 3rd by hometown favorite Jason Hiett. Brian Smith (outside pole) finished 4th and Jason Welshan 5th.
The 50 lap event was slowed by five caution periods. The defending champion, David Brannon was an early retiree along with 2015 Ice Bowl winner and defending TST SLM champion Tim Roszell.
In other Ice Bowl features, Reuben Mayfield took honors in the Limited Late Model while Brandon Williams held off Riley Hickman and Ronnie Johnson in the Crate Late Model race.
Talladega Short Track enjoyed a record crowd for the weekend, which was postponed a week from the original scheduled dates of 1/5-1/8 due to ice and snow in the region.
FNN Motorsports originated 35 hours of live coverage over the two weekends, which will soon be made available to fans in a Video-On-Demand format. DVDs of the seven classes feature races or by class to include both heats and the feature can also be purchased. Look for details on both these opportunities for race fans soon here at fnnnetwork.com.
