After event number 3 - The Milwaukee Mile
1. Cayden Lapcevich (Last week - #1) - Lapcevich saw his win streak snapped at two last Thursday night, but he still had a tremendous event, and APC eSeries invaded the badger state. After staring third, he got caught up in an incident and was forced to work his way through traffic. He fought his way back through the field to post a solid fourth-place finish, and retain his spot atop the power rankings.
#2 Treyten Lapcevich - (Last week - #2) - The younger brother of the Grimsby duo has the third-highest finishing average of the field and came less than a mile away from his first series win last Thursday at Milwaukee. Lapcevich qualified on the pole, ran the second-fastest lap, and paced the field for a race high 109 of the 125 laps. Dale Shaw reeled him in, and the pair made contact heading into turn one on the final lap. Treyten lost the race, but saved the car, a sixth-place result, and his spot in the power rankings.
#3 Ryan Dyson (Last week #3) - Ryan Dyson qualified second and ran with the leaders all night at the Milwaukee Mile. Ryan took advantage of the dust-up at the head of the pack to score his second consecutive runner-up finish, last Thursday night. At the end of the night, he turned the third-fastest lap, had the third best performance, and comes out third again in the power rankings, but a little closer to the Lapcevich brothers.
#4 Dale Shaw (Last week #6) - The inaugural APC Late Model Series champion ran up front during the first two races of the APC eSeries, but disaster struck late in both races, leaving him with a pair of 'could've been' finishes. Shaw did a masterful job of saving his equipment before running down Treyten Lapcevich late in the event at Milwaukee, turning the fastest lap of the day. The pair made contact in turn one on the final lap, and Shaw was able to capture his first victory of the series and moved him up the Power Rankings.
#5 Rick Spencer-Walt (Last week #5) - Coming off a fifth-place finish in race number two at Richmond Raceway, Spencer-Walt didn't help himself in qualifying at the Milwaukee Mile as he was only able to turn the 19th-fastest time against the clock. Spencer-Walt kept his chariot together all evening, and brought it home with a solid seventh-place, good enough to lower his average finish mark to 8.0 to edge ahead of Jamie Dyson. Spencer-Walt get the slight nod ahead of Dyson because of average finish, call the pair even money heading to Five Flags Speedway on Thursday night though.
#6 Jamie Dyson (Last week #8) - Jamie Dyson was able to use a solid fifth-place start to get track position early before having to come from the back in the mid-race. After three races Jamie sits sixth in average finishes at 9.0. The eight place finish at The Milwaukee Mile goes with a 12th last weekend at Richmond and a seventh at USA International Speedway.
#7 Jo Lawrence (Last week #10) - Lawrence had his dud with a 25th-place finish at Richmond, but he was still fast at the 3/4-mile track, racing his way to a third-place finish in the B-Main, and running in the top-ten before crashing out. A second at USA International Speedway showed that the Richmond result was an outlier, as Lawrence won the B-Main at Milwaukee, and raced his way to the fifth fastest lap of the night, and a third-place finish on the most famous mile of asphalt in Wisconsin, and moved up the Power Rankings.
#8 Josh Stade (Last week #7) - The former Sauble Speedway champ has been a model of consistency on the APC eSeries tour, and after an 11th-place result in the opener, turned up the wick a bit. Stade posted a ninth-place finish at Richmond Raceway, and then qualified 18th as the APC eSeries took to the Badger state mile last Thursday. Stade raced his way to another ninth-place finish, but it wasn't enough to keep him at #7 in the rankings. To climb, 'Prime Time' has to find the top-five next.
#9 Jade Franklin (Last week Unranked) - Franklin ran a pedestrian 17th in the season opener at USA International Speedway before starting to find his grove at Richmond Raceway. At the 3/4-mile oval he qualified ninth and finished 11th. At Milwaukee, he stepped it up again, qualifying fifth, leading a lap, and coming home with a fifth-place finish to put him on the Power Rankings list heading to Five Flags Speedway this Thursday.
#10 Ray Morneau (Last week #4) - The Richmond Raceway third-place finish put Morneau fourth in the Power Rankings last week, but this list is fickle, and very 'what have you done for me lately'. With both of Morneau's finishes outside the top-ten, the Windsor driver has some work to do to start climbing the list again next week in Pensacola.
