The drivers’ standings at Pocono Downs have tightened up a bit the last couple weeks. But it’s still North America’s leading reinsman, Tim Tetrick, who leads the charge with 163 wins. Tetrick has been the most dominant driving figure at the Downs since the Walter Case era. Tim is currently winning at an unreal 31 percent clip. Second in the standings is Pittston native Mike Simons. Mike has had a solid year with 150 wins, but that’s in 1,139 starts as opposed to Tetrick’s 530 starts. Third in the standings, and catching fire the last few months of the season, is Eric Goodell. Eric has just been winning on all kinds of horses of late, and if he starting winning just a little bit sooner, he just might be closer to Tetrick. It still may be an interesting last few weeks as the season winds down to see who will be the new king of the Pocono driver colony at the conclusion of the 2007 racing season.
