Five races in five nights with the Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA) culminated with the New Mexico native registering a podium finish in Saturday night’s $10,555-to-win finale at 34 Raceway.

“We gained speed throughout the week, and then Saturday night at 34 Raceway we started on the pole. In the feature, we missed it just by a little bit. Just a little bit too tight to circle that bottom real nice,” Alberson said. “I wanted to get a little bit more. I wanted to try somewhere else on the track, but I knew we needed a good run to start the year. Hopefully we can keep what we had Saturday going in our upcoming events. That’s the best that both me and the car have been so far this year.”
