FAIRBANKS-Last night on the farthest north racetrack in North Pole was Military Appreciation night. The North Pole Speedway teamed up with Stanley Nissan in their salute to America.

Thursday night's racing featured dual main events. One of the main events was a makeup race from a previously rained out Thursday night.

Jody Littell channeled his inner Jeff Gordon as Littell in the 24 Dupont Bandolero won both main events last night for the sweep.

The legends class is close in the point standings and Al Trettel increased his 29 point lead by winning the first of two main events in the legends class.

Ryan Cote returned to the winner's circle after not racing last week and captured the checkered flag in the last main event of the night in the legends class. He was driving a new car as well.

"This is a car I just bought this Saturday. The car that I normally drive, the engine went bad a few weeks ago and I haven't been racing for a few weeks," Cote said.

"I just bought this one I've been working hard on it every day for the last few days. This is the first time I've drove this car tonight. It's running pretty good."

The North Pole Speedway Bandos and Legends class drivers will gear up for the second half of the summer racing season next Thursday night. There are seven weeks remaining.
