All of the action at the Chilly Willy is building up to Sunday’s main event, the Super Late Models Chilly Willy 150.

Below are the takeaways from Friday’s action.

  • Preston Peltier of Brighton, Colorado, proved to be the Super Late Model driver to beat Friday night at Tucson. He topped the division’s qualifying run by 0.2 seconds over second-place Tyler Tanner, putting Peltier on the pole for the A Feature 1. Peltier won that feature from the pole.
  • Blaine Rocha, Edward Vecchiarelli, Kody Vanderwal and Rudy Vanderwal rounded out the top five of the Super Late Models A Feature 1. Vecchiarelli was able to pass Kody Vanderwal after starting fourth.
