The highlight of the races on July 4, 2015 was the return, after two and a half decades, of Duluth native Tommy Archer to the Brainerd International Raceway track.  At age 60, Archer is on a high after being diagnosed, and beating, cancer over the last few years.  Not only did Archer return to the track, he won the pole position in the qualifying races on the fourth and will look to defeat the 20 car field tomorrow (July 5) and win the TA2 title at Brainerd.

Check back for more photos and results from the finals tomorrow.
