TEAM NPP SEASON WRAPUP
TUSCON, AZ
(November 20) - Darrell Midgley and Team NPP wrap up the 2017 race season this weekend at Tucson Speedway.  The Arizona track hosts its third annual Turkey Shoot 125 for Super Late Model race teams. In his two previous Turkey Shoot appearances (2015 & 16), Midgley drove the Northern Provincial Pipelines Ltd./Alien Race Cars #81 Dodge to 8th and 11th place finishes. "If we can keep tires on the car (this weekend) we'll be in a good position," admits the Sidney, British Columbia driver, "we're learning every time we visit this track."  Finishes for Midgley have been trending upwards at Tucson Speedway.  In his last appearance, Midgley recorded his best ever finish at the Arizona track.

"We finished sixth here in the new car (last month).  We're pretty excited about this car and are definitely headed in the right direction."  At the 2015 Turkey Shoot race Midgley led close to 50 laps in the decade old Team NPP #81 Dodge.  Midgley led a handful of laps at the 2016 race.  "Tire wear has bit us here several times.  On Wednesday we are going to get some extra laps to play with the set up."  Turkey Shoot practice sessions for Super Late Model teams officially start Friday.  "We're optimistic (about this weekend) but we still have a lot to learn about this new car."
