DAVE BLANEY BEATS TEAMMATE & BROTHER DALE BLANEY TO WIN HIS 1ST "LOU BLANEY MEMORIAL" IN THE SPRINTS WHILE REX KING JR CONTINUES STELLAR SEASON WITH BRP MOD TOUR WIN AT SHARON
By Mike Leone
Hartford, OH July 30, 2014 Sharon Speedway hosted the sixth annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" on Wednesday night. Despite thunderstorms scattered throughout the region during the day and night, only two brief showers hit the speedway in the late afternoon. A large crowd turned out along with 23 "410" Sprint Cars and 31 Big-Block Modifieds in the Ollie's Bargain Outlet Alzheimer's Association Benefit Event. Celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane were Dave Blaney-"410" Sprint Cars and Rex King, Jr.-BRP Tour Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds. And there has still yet to be a repeat winner in either division after six years!
Dave Blaney has won a lot of big races and championships throughout his stellar career. He's won USAC and World of Outlaw Sprint championships, the Knoxville Nationals, the Kings Royal and Historical Big One at Eldora Speedway, and even a victory in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, but none may have been as special as Wednesday night's victory at his home track. The elder son of the late Lou Blaney took charge on lap six from Caleb Helms and set a torrid pace in the 30-lap Sprint Car feature to beat his brother Dale at the finish for the $5,000 victory- his first in six tries in the Memorial event.
"I guess it took me bringing a second car for Dale to finally win this," joked the 51-year-old High Point, North Carolina resident. "This feels pretty good to win this race. I have to thank everyone for the support all of these years- it's been a lot of fun! Nights like this make Sprint Car racing worthwhile. It gets frustrating sometimes as I've been doing this part-time, and can't seem to be able to do what I used to be able to do. I'm glad Dale was here in my car- that was really fun!"
From the outside pole, Helms took charge of the event from Caleb Griffith with Dave Blaney in third on the opening lap. Dale Blaney started sixth and was fifth after one lap then passed Cole Duncan for fourth on lap three. Helms caught lapped traffic on lap five, while Dave Blaney began to challenge Griffith for second. Dave made the pass with an inside move in turn four on lap five then quickly caught leader Helms and made the winning move racing off the bottom of turn four one lap later.
Griffith began to challenge Helms for second on lap seven and finally worked his way by two laps later in traffic with the help of the lapped car of Dennis Wagner. Dale Blaney meanwhile continued his way forward as he caught Helms and made the pass on lap 11 to grab third. Dale looked strong as he ran down Griffith and appeared ready to make the pass when the first caution was displayed for C.J. Jones with 15 laps scored. The caution erased a 4.208 second lead by Dave Blaney!
Back under green, Dale Blaney put a slider on Griffith in turn two to steal the runner-up spot. A caution for a slowing Jason Dolick brought action to a halt with 18 laps recorded. Fast qualifier Lee Jacobs was quiet for most of the first half of the event, but worked his way back into the top five on lap 20 taking the spot from Duncan. Three laps later, the two-time Lernerville Speedway winner this season passed Helms for fourth.
Dave Blaney was back in lapped traffic on lap 23 before the final caution was displayed for the fifth place running Helms, who was unable to make it off the speedway. When racing resumed for the final time, Rod George made his way into the top five passing Duncan for the spot, but that would be the final passing in the top five.
Dave Blaney would go pretty much unchallenged by his brother in the final three laps to win by a margin of 1.286 seconds. The victory was Blaney's third overall of the season in his Mohawk Northeast/Global Oil & Gas Services/Tom's Sewer & Septic Service/Lelands.com/Bill Davis Trucking-sponsored #98H, and 28th of his career at Sharon in Sprint Cars to go along with two Big-Block Modified wins.
Dale Blaney, the current All Star point leader and winner of 13 features this season in Tony Kennedy's #14K, was runner-up in an identical #98 car to his brother Dave as he came up just shy in his bid for his first "Lou Blaney Memorial" victory. Griffith edged out a hard charging and fast closing Jacobs for third. George was fifth in Jim Chappel's #8- the same ride that won the 2010 event driven by Mike Lutz.
Completing the top 10 were Duncan, 13th starting Andy McKisson, Brandon Matus, Eric Williams, and 15th starting Adam Kekich. Heat winners were Jacobs, Matus, and Kekich. Jacobs set fast time in qualifying with a lap of 13.186- just four tenths off the track record.
When you're having a career year, things just seem to fall in place. Rex King, Jr. drew the outside pole starting spot for the 35-lap BRP Tour Big-Block Modified feature and got a much needed caution just as it appeared Dave Murdick was about to take the lead. King, Jr. then held off Murdick in the closing laps for his season's fifth win at Sharon and eighth overall on the circuit. Like Dave Blaney, it was King, Jr's first ever "Lou Blaney Memorial" victory, worth $2,000, for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply point leader.
"I never raced with Lou, but he was always as nice as can be to me in the pits and grandstands," explained the 23-year-old Bristolville, Ohio racer. "To be honest, my brother and I didn't like him at first because he'd kick everyone around- you couldn't beat the guy! It's a real honor to win this race. He was great for the community. Look at all of the people that came out for this night and that just tells you what kind of guy he really was. The track was great tonight and I want to thank everyone for coming out and supporting Lou and his race."
King, Jr. powered around pole-sitter Lonny Riggs on the start and began to pull away. Riggs' "358" small-block had his hands full trying to fend off Murdick and Jimmy Weller III in the battle for second on lap four. Murdick made the pass of Riggs for runner-up on lap five, while Weller III followed in third two laps later.
King, Jr. caught the back of the pack on lap eight. Weller III ran down Murdick and the duo raced side-by-side on laps 11 and 12 with Murdick holding on to the runner-up spot. After 14 non-stop laps, a caution for Jeremiah Shingledecker bunched up the field. Back under green, King, Jr. sped away from the pack while the battle raged for second between Murdick and the two Wellers.
On lap 22, King, Jr. was back in traffic and this time struggled to clear some of the slower cars as Murdick closed in on lap 23. The father-son Weller duo battled for third with Weller, Jr. getting the spot on lap 25; meanwhile, back up front the race was on for the lead as Murdick pulled even on laps 27 and 28 before a caution for Shayne Pierce. The caution reverted scoring back to lap 27 when King, Jr. had just a 0.004 of a second lead!
The final eight laps saw King, Jr. keep Murdick at bay by just 0.689 of a second for his 13th career Sharon win in the KMB Inc.-owned, Jim Brown Seed Sales/Bristol Disposal/Reese Services/Professional Heating Systems/Jet Inc/Cedar Steel/Mahan Welding & Fab/Schaeffer Oil/Cintas Uniform/Cleer Excavation-sponsored #165.
"It's always entertaining with lapped traffic," expressed the winner. "The top was good at the start of the race then it started to go away. We started getting some traction in the middle of the track in one and two then turn three and four started 'rubbering' so we had to make our way down there."
It was a solid effort for Murdick, the 2008 and 2012 Sharon Champion, who was making his first start at the Hartford, Ohio oval in the 85th anniversary season. Weller, Jr. beat out his son Weller III for the third spot. Brian Swartzlander came from 11th to place fifth. Completing the top 10 were Brad Rapp, 15th starting Rex King, Ricky Richner, 16th starting Jim Rasey, and Kevin Hoffman. Heat winners over the season high 31-car field were Murdick, Weller, Jr., and Swartzlander. Kyle Fink won the last chance B main.

Sprint Car Drivers and Teams Band Together to Create the Renegade Sprints
FINDLAY, Ohio (July 30, 2014) - Sprint car drivers and teams have come together to establish the Renegade Sprints, which will make its debut later this season.
The 410ci series will compete in approximately 50 races each year throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Michigan. Details on a points fund and race payout are in the works, but Renegade Sprints President Shane Helms expects each race to pay at least $5,000 to win.
"The most important thing is that a group of drivers in this area have decided to band together to form a new series," Helms said. "Our desire is to do this for the fans and for the racers. We want to be able to control our own destiny, take care of the fans and grow the sport."
Approximately a dozen drivers have committed to running the series, including former All Star Circuit of Champions title winners Tim Shaffer, Greg Wilson and Chad Kemenah.
The officers for the series are Helms, Rob Hunter and Larry Helms, who will also serve as the competition director.
"My dad has been racing his whole life," Shane Helms said. "He'll be the main honcho on race day to make sure everything is flowing right."
In addition to the officers, drivers will be elected to a board that will set up and enforce rules, work on the schedule and deal with the everyday circumstances of operating a sprint car series.
Stay tuned for additional details about the committed drivers, schedule, purse and more.

Final Full F.A.S.T. Weekend Ahead at Attica and Fremont!
Chris Andrews and John Ivy Lead the Pack Down the Homestretch
Fremont, OH (July 28th, 2014) - F.A.S.T. action is quickly coming to a close for the 2014 season; in fact, only three (3) events remain for the Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title Championship Series presented by KS Sales & Service; including two (2) during the upcoming weekend. The JLH General Contractors Fremont/Attica Sprint Title ‘305’ Championship Series presented by Engine Pro only has two (2) events remaining on its 2014 racing schedule; with one (1) being featured during the upcoming weekend. Both F.A.S.T. championships will come to a close on Saturday evening, September 6th at the Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. F.A.S.T. promoter Rich Farmer will crown two (2) champions on that night; as well as hand out two (2) championship checks. The F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship Series champion will earn a $10,000 pay day; with this year’s F.A.S.T. ‘305’ Championship Series champion earning $2,000.
“Its been a pretty successful season so far...it wouldn’t be possible without the continuing support from our sponsors and the teams that participate” explained Rich Farmer, “Its been really competitive this year...and with the weather only interfering with two shows so far, I’d say that makes us pretty lucky...the next few races should be exciting…the point standings are close; that makes it even better!”
The F.A.S.T. organization will host three (3) events during the upcoming weekend; making its usual visits to the Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway. Attica Raceway Park will host the F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship Series and F.A.S.T. ‘305’ Championship Series for the final time in 2014 this Friday evening, August 1st. It will be the only event of the weekend for the JLH General Contractors Fremont/Attica Sprint Title ‘305’ Championship Series presented by Engine Pro. F.A.S.T. ‘305’ competitors will conclude their 2014 campaign on Saturday evening, September 6th at the Fremont Speedway.
Although the F.A.S.T. ‘305’ Championship Series will only be featured once during the upcoming weekend, the stars and cars of the Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title Championship Series presented by KS Sales & Service will be featured twice; returning to action on Saturday, August 2nd at the Fremont Speedway for the final time before their season finale at Fremont on September 6th. The final ‘full’ weekend of F.A.S.T. competition should prove to be than thrilling; as the championship standings continue to be ‘too close to call.’
Two-time feature winner with the series in 2014, Chris Andrews, currently finds himself on top of the F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship Series point standings with 1697 points heading into this weekend’s pair of events; holding a thirty-four (34) point advantage over former series champion, Byron Reed. Reed, who still remains winless in 2014 during F.A.S.T. competition, sits second in the standings with 1663 points. Caleb Griffith, Brian Lay and Travis Philo find themselves third through fifth in the updated championship rankings; with Griffith and Lay each earning two (2) F.A.S.T. victories along the way. Defending series champion, Craig Mintz, is another two-time winner during F.A.S.T. action in 2014, but a streak of absences due to injury has kept Mintz out of championship reach. Besides ‘Mother Nature’ on July 26th, Caleb Griffith is the most recent series winner; stealing the show from Greg Wilson on Friday, July 25th at Attica Raceway Park.
John Ivy’s top-ten performance at Attica Raceway Park last Friday evening, July 25th allowed the veteran to take back the top spot in the current F.A.S.T. ‘305’ Championship Series standings; holding a three (3) point advantage over Steve Rando heading into the August 1st program. Nate Dussel, Jordan Ryan and Dustin Dinan sit third through fifth in the standings; with Dussel and Ivy being the only drivers inside the top-five with F.A.S.T. ‘305’ wins on the year. Nate Dussel is the most recent series winner; earning his first F.A.S.T. victory of 2014 at Attica Raceway Park on Friday, July 25th.

Ian Madsen Holds Off Field in Marathon at Knoxville
by Bill Wright
KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 26, 2014 – Ian Madsen was victorious for the second time this season and the fourth time in his career at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night in the 410 feature. A roller coaster A main saw just fifteen competitors cross the checkers at the finish. In the 360 class, Justin Henderson won for the second time this season, padding the BDS Motorsports #1 owner’s point lead in that class.
Before a lap could be completed in the 410 A main, Austen Wheatley flipped after contact from another car. Danny Lasoski spun to avoid the incident. Wheatley was o.k., and Lasoski restarted at the tail.
On the complete restart of the 20-lapper, Dusty Zomer took command from the pole, with Madsen and Mark Dobmeier in tow. With just a lap in the books, Cole Wood flipped hard in turn one. He was also uninjured. After the race went green again, Madsen found his way by Zomer on lap three to take the point.
Brian Brown was on the move as well, going from eighth to fifth on lap one, and taking fourth from Dobmeier on lap five. Madsen and Zomer traded the lead briefly at the halfway point, with Madsen pulling away. On lap fourteen, Brown passed Dobmeier for third and set his sights on the leaders.
Point leader, Terry McCarl, who had to work his way through the B, stalled with motor problems with fifteen laps in the books. Clint Garner, who was running seventh, spun to avoid him and had to restart at the tail. Madsen led Zomer, Brown, Dobmeier and Bronson Maeschen back to green flag racing. Brown made quick work of Zomer to move into second.
Two laps later, a vicious three-car crash ensued involving Lynton Jeffrey, Jon Agan and Dakota Hendrickson. All three climbed from their machines. Brown slid in front of Madsen when the green replaced the red, but surrendered the lead down the backstretch. When he tried to enter under Madsen in turn three, he caught the berm, made contact with the leader and launched straight into the fence. He too, walked away.
That would prove to be the final stoppage of the event. Zomer shot in front of Madsen in turns one and two when the green flew, but Madsen ducked back under to pull away for a win worth $3,000 to the Nehring #18 team. Zomer followed in second, ahead of Craig Dollansky, Dobmeier and Lasoski, from the tail. Maeschen, Davey Heskin, Justin Henderson, Don Droud Jr. and Sam Hafertepe Jr. rounded out the top ten.
Brown posted quick time on the night as well as winning his heat from the sixth starting spot. Other heat winners included Garner, Hafertepe and Heskin. Lasoski won the B. Bryan Clauson lost a left rear wheel in qualifying and flipped in turn one. He was also uninjured, but done for the night.
With two point shows remaining, there are just 137 points separating first from fifth in the standings.
“I gave everything I had,” said Madsen in Victory Lane. “I didn’t want to give another one up. When I get around Brian, we start racing pretty hard. I hope he’s not too angry at him. I did chop him. I can’t thank my team enough. It’s definitely, I think, the best team in the Midwest and one of the best in the country. I’m just lucky to drive it.”
The 360 feature went almost without a hitch. Young Josh Baughman shot from the pole to lead Matt Covington and Henderson early on in the 18-lapper. The only caution came on lap five when Alan Ambers slowed to a stop in turn one.
Baughman led Covington, Henderson, Calvin Landis and Nate Van Haaften back to green flag racing. Henderson made quick work of Covington for second at that point, while Landis followed him into third on lap eight.
Baughman continued to lead until lap twelve, when Henderson found his way by for 360 career win number three here. Baughman ran a strong second, ahead of Landis, Van Haaften and Jamie Ball. Joe Beaver, Sheldon Haudenschild, Covington, Jon Agan and Dusty Zomer rounded out the top ten.
Joe Beaver registered quick time on the night over the 40-car field, while Sawyer Phillips, Henderson, Jarrod Schneiderman and Brooke Tatnell won heat races. Tony Bruce Jr. won the B.
“This was a great win,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “I’m super-happy for this team. I’m just happy to be a part of it. Baughman was running a great race. He was doing a great job. I just enjoy the heck out of running with these guys.”
Join us Thursday night as the 24th Annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals gets underway. The 360 Nationals will run Thursday, July 31 through August 2. The 3rd Annual Capitani Classic will be Sunday, August 3! For more information, log on to www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Lucrative & prestigious $5,000-to-win/ $700-to-start Peter Murphy Classic at Thunderbowl Raceway represents King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series round 13 this Saturday night
By Gary Thomas
Tulare, CA – July 21, 2014…The anticipation has been mounting ever so slightly since the announcement of the Peter Murphy Classic and this Saturday night July 26 the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series is set to finally invade the Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway for the big $5,000-to-win/ $700-to-start showcase.
Saturday’s event not only has a large amount of money on the line, but we’ll of course also be paying honor to popular Sprint Car driver Peter Murphy. Last season the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series had one of its toughest nights in recent memory when Murphy suffered injuries during a main event crash at the Antioch Speedway on July 20.
The result of the accident has ultimately forced Murphy to retire from Sprint Car racing as a driver, having suffered a traumatic brain injury, ligament damage in his neck, shoulder and knees, along with a compressed T-3 vertebra. The Sydney, Australia native continues to recover from the accident and has gathered a large amount of money that’s going towards this Saturday’s event at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway.
“Originally I wanted to do something at Antioch to help make the night a special one for everybody that was there last year,” said Murphy, who resides in Clovis, California. “The last time we were there it wasn’t a very good ending, so I had planned to change that around this season and make it a memorable one for another reason. With the Antioch event being canceled I’m really glad Steve Faria & Thunderbowl Raceway has picked up the date. I definitely hope all the fans that were in Antioch last season will come down to Tulare for what will be a great night of racing.”
The Peter Murphy Classic this Saturday features the biggest purse of the season for the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series with the $5,000-to-win & $700-to-start A-main! In addition to the beefed up purse there will also be $500 on the line for fast time, $500 to hard charger and $500 to the longest tow! A 360 Sprint Car bonus of $300, $200 and $100 will also be awarded to the three highest finishing drivers utilizing a 360 engine during the night.
The Dash during the night will also have a special twist thrown in. Rather than doing the standard eight car dash where all drivers compete for six laps, the night will see an Australian & New Zealand style Pole Shuffle thrown into the mix.
The eight dash cars will still be determined the same way as always, but drivers will race each other two by two for two laps, until the final pair go at it for a couple laps to determine the pole sitter. The drivers that draw 8 & 7 will race each other first, with the winner going against the driver that draws number 6. The process will go on until there are two drivers left standing.
“I really want this night to be a big one for all the fans and teams,” Murphy said. “The King of the West Sprint Car Series is one of the best Sprint Car tours you’ll find anywhere and Tulare will be great place to host an event like this. I still can’t thank everyone enough for all that they have done for me the last year. It’s been so humbling to have the support from people all over the world. This is kind of a way for me to give back and show how much I appreciate this sport we all love.”
Going into the night Chico’s Kyle Hirst will be looking to rebound after a couple of rough weeks, which has cut his King of the West point lead down to 79-markers. The defending KWS champ picked up victory during the most recent series event at the Thunderbowl Raceway and will trying hard for another on Saturday aboard the Roth Motorsports machine. Hirst is tied with Rico Abreu for the most King of the West wins this season, having scored three so far.
Once down by 126-points just a couple weeks back, Campbell’s Bud Kaeding will look for a strong night to cut even further into Hirst’s lead in the King of the West standings. The driver of the Williams Motorsports No. 0 Sprinter earned his first KWS win of the year on July 12 and will be gunning for number two on Saturday. When Peter Murphy first came to the US to drive, his initial full-time ride was in the Morrie Williams owned ZERO from late 1997-2001.
Coming off a heartbreaking finish last Saturday, Campbell’s Brent Kaeding goes into the Peter Murphy Classic continuing to maintain the third spot in the KWS points. The National Sprint Car Hall of Famer looked to be on way to victory in Placerville until a final corner spin relegated him to a second place finish. Kaeding charged from 17th to seventh during the most recent series event in Tulare aboard the famed Al’s Roofing Supply No. 69 machine.
Sitting just 18-markers behind Kaeding now is last Saturday night’s main event winner Sean Becker of Roseville, who holds down fourth in the standings. The 2005 King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series champion earned a thrilling victory this past weekend and will look to continue the momentum at the Peter Murphy Classic in the Main Motorsports No. 35 mount.
Rounding out the top-five in the King of the West standings is three-time series champion Jonathan Allard of Chico, who had a strong run going in May at Tulare, until a flat tire sent him spinning late in the race. The driver of the Tri-C Manufacturing No. 3c has one KWS victory so far in 2014 and certainly wants number two at the Peter Murphy Classic on Saturday.
A very close & heated battle is still seen between the drivers ranking sixth through ninth in the KWS points, as just 10-markers separate the four drivers.
Grass Valley’s Jason Statler, fresh off his first podium finish of the season, holds onto the sixth position in the standings. The 2004 series champ in fact, is only 16-points back of Allard for fifth after charging from 13th to third last week. Fremont’s Shane Golobic had a tough end to the feature last weekend, but sits just five-digits behind Statler for sixth in the points. The current Civil War & Ocean Sprints point leader ran second at Tulare in May with KWS.
Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi has gained momentum with the season going on and is just two-markers back of Golobic in the points. The 17-year-old last Saturday charged from 17th to fourth in the main event. Only three-markers behind Scelzi is Elk Grove’s Bobby McMahan, who finished third at Tulare in May and will look for a solid night Saturday to help move up the ladder. Completing the top-10 in the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series standings is Hanford’s DJ Netto, who has also picked up strength as the season has gone on.
More drivers set to invade the Tulare Thunderbowl on Saturday will include Easton’s Tommy Tarlton, who captured victory in the KWS season-opener at the one-third mile oval, along with Sacramento’s Willie Croft, Fresno’s Craig Stidham, Hanford’s DJ Netto, Lemoore’s Carson Macedo, Fresno’s Cory Eliason, Scott’s Valley’s Evan Suggs, Hanford’s Mitchell Faccinto, Princeton’s Mason Moore, Gilroy’s Jarrett Soares, Grass Valley’s Pat Harvey, Fair Oak’s Chad Compton, Auburn’s Richard Brace Jr., Coarsegold’s Scott Parker, Tipton’s Mike Faria, Winton’s Gordon Rodgers and others.
Reserved grandstand seats for the Peter Murphy Classic on Saturday July 26 will cost $25 with general admission bleacher tickets $20. To reserve your seat contact (559) 688-0909. The front gate will open at 4pm with racing expected to get underway around 7pm. Also in action during the night will be Wingless 360 Sprint Cars to make for a great card of racing.

From the junction of SR 99 and SR 137, go west on SR 137. At South K go south one-half mile to the Fairgrounds. More info can be found at http://www.thunderbowlraceway.com
Henderson Wins Thriller at Knoxville
by Bill Wright
KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, July 19, 2014 – Justin Henderson shot by Ian Madsen coming for the white flag to grab the $3,000 win in the 410 sprint car feature on 3M Night at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday. The win was Henderson’s sixth in his career at the famous half-mile. Dusty Zomer picked up a convincing win in the 360 main event, and rookie Devin Kline picked up his first career win in the 305 feature.
Wayne Johnson shot out from his starting spot on the pole to lead the first two laps of the 410 main event, ahead of Madsen and Henderson. Madsen took the point on the third go-around, while Henderson followed him by Johnson two laps later.
The only caution of the event flew with seven laps completed. Brad Loyet came to a rest in turn two. Under caution, contact from another car collapsed the front end of the tenth place car of Mark Dobmeier. He retired with Loyet.
Madsen led Henderson, Johnson, Clint Garner and Dusty Zomer back to green on the restart. Zomer took over the fourth spot, with Garner in fifth. Behind them, Sammy Swindell, Terry McCarl and Brian Brown were slicing and dicing for position.
Meanwhile, Madsen continued to lead, increasing his margin on Henderson. With five laps to go, Henderson brought the BDS Motorsports #1 closer to the leader. In heavy lapped traffic coming for the white flag, he made his winning move. Madsen finished second ahead of Johnson, Zomer and Brown. Swindell, Garner, McCarl, Davey Heskin and Craig Dollansky rounded out the top ten.
Swindell set quick time on the night, while Garner, Brown, Jason Johnson and Don Droud Jr. claimed heat races. Danny Lasoski won the B main.
“I was doing nothing but screwing up,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “I was ramping the inside berm and hitting the wall. It was a lot of fun though. I like a lot of things that are going on. It makes it a lot of fun. Bryan (Sunby) always gives us a really good car. If I wouldn’t have screwed up earlier, maybe I could have driven by him (sooner). It was a great racecar as always.”
Calvin Landis led the first two laps of the 360 feature, but it was all Dusty Zomer after that. The Sioux Falls native took the point on lap three. On the fourth go-around, Henderson moved into third, passing Sawyer Phillips.
On lap six the only stoppage of the 18-lapper came for debris in turn two. Zomer led Landis, Henderson, Jamie Ball and Lee Grosz back to green flag racing. Zomer pulled away from the field, while Henderson slowly reeled in Landis for the runner-up position. He would make his move for the spot on the last lap. Ball and Jeff Swindell trailed the lead trio. Joe Beaver, Grosz, hard-charger Russ Hall, Jarrod Schneiderman and Jason Johnson rounded out the top ten.
Henderson posted quick time in the 360 class, while Wayne Johnson, Dylan Peterson, Josh Baughman and Russ Hall claimed heat races. Billy Alley topped the B main.
“It was a fast race track,” said Zomer of his third career 360 feature aboard the Derek Ingalls’ #91. “There was a good bottom and a good top. We started everything simple. We always have some things to change, but we were fast and we were good. I think we’ll have some good notes for a couple of weeks (360 Nationals).”
Devin Kline put the L&J Enterprise #5J in the lead right away in the 15-lap 305 feature from his starting position on the pole with Steve Breazeale and Kade Higday in tow. Keoni Texeira took third briefly, but J Kinder was on the move, grabbing third on lap five, and then second from Breazeale on lap nine in the non-stop event.
Kinder was on a rail and shot by Kline in traffic for the lead on lap ten. He drifted up a bit behind a lapped car on the next circuit, however, and Kline shot back by, never giving up the point again. It was his first ever feature win here. Kinder followed, ahead of Breazeale, Texeira and Kevin Hetrick. Hard-charger Stacey Alexander, Jeff Wilke, Mitchell Alexander, Higday and Mike Philben rounded out the top ten.
Matthew Stelzer set quick time in the 305 class, but suffered motor problems in his heat and retired for the night. Stacey Alexander, Mitchell Alexander and Dustin Clark won heat races, while Corey Kautz won the B.
“I felt like I set a good pace until I got to lapped traffic,” said Kline in Victory Lane. “I got into the middle and didn’t know where to go. I ran the top and slowed down a lot. Once (Kinder) slid me, and slid back up, I knew I had a good enough car to get back on the bottom and set sail.”
