Eddie King Jr. picks up second win

After picking up a win a couple weeks ago, Wayne Rader set fast time in qualifying earning the pole for the 20 lap Modified Street feature. The green waved and it was outside pole sitter Chris Rickett who used the high line off turn two and put his #36 into the lead ahead of Rader, Dwayne Fox, Michael Weeks and Scott Spicer. Woods would make a move early on to move himself into the third position. Rader began working the low line under Rickett as the two put some distance on Woods who held down the third spot. Rader kept the pressure on Rickett but on lap 8 the #36 machine would slow with mechanical problems ending his night. The battle for the third spot seemed to be the battle of the night with Willie Busler making his way up through the pack setting his sights on Woods. Up front it was all Rader who pulled away to a huge lead and picked up another win.

Up next was the 20 lap Sportsman feature. John Lewellyn put his #2 on pole for the first time in 2017 with Brad Seagle keeping him company on the front row. The green waved and the field barreled into turn one with Lewellyn getting the run and taking the lead ahead of Seagle, Andy Ogle, Zach Sise and last years track Champion Clyde Stanton rounding out the top five. Zach Sise was on go early on as he moved past Ogle and into the third spot just behind the leaders. Ogle also had his hands full with Stanton who wanted his fourth spot. As seagle began to inch away out front the fight was still going on between Sise and Ogle for third. Adam Michell didn’t have a great qualifying effort but began moving his way up as he powered past Terry Poore and into the sixth spot. Halfway through tthe race and Seagle had built up a huge lead of nearly a half track over second. Seagle would pick his way through the slower traffic in the closing laps and cruise to the win.

Richie Overholser would take the lead on the start of the 20 lap Classic car feature with Eli Keck, Lee Merritt Chris Nix and Luke Ellis on his heels. The battles were intense as per usual in the Classic Cars division as Merritt and Nix battled it out for the third spot in the opening laps. Joe Keck started in the rear of the field but quickly began working his way up through the pack. The caution would wave for Chris Worsham who went for a spin in turn two. Back under green and Keck had made his way up into the top three just behind the leaders. Eli Keck looked to have found something as he put pressure on the leader but dumped a ton of fluid on the track ending his night early. After a lengthy cleanup it was back to racing with Joe Keck taking over the top spot completing his drive from the back to the front. However he seemed to be having some mechanical issues on his #78 as smoke began to trail from the back of his car. Just three laps left and Lee Merritt made his move and took over the top spot and went on to pick up the win in a great race. 
1: #9 Lee Merritt
2: #44 Chris Nix
3: #18 Richie Overholser
4: #17 Luke Ellis
5: #78 Joe Keck
6: #3 Chris Worsham
7: #8 Eli Keck
John Byers took control of the Mini Stock feature after earning the pole by winning the heat race earlier in the day. Tommy Newton had picked up the win in the last two straight races and was on the move again moving himself up into the third spot in the opening laps. It didn’t take him long to take over second and set his sights on Byers for the lead. Trouble for the #25 of Brandon Miller who pulled off with problems just a few laps into the feature. Another caution this time for Alex Holbert who went for a spin off turn two. Last years track Champion Thomas Clark wasn’t about to let Newton and Byers settle it alone as he put his name into the mix and got by Newton on the restart. Trouble for Stephen Russell and Alex Holbert as the two got together off turn four breaking the left front wheel off Russell’s machine ending his night early. Newton would get back around Clark late in the race but ran out of time to catch Byers who picked up the win.
1: #83 John Byers

Up next was the 30 lap Steelhead Late Model feature. After having some terrible luck all season long, point leader Jason Cardwell looked to get the monkey off his back after he set fast time in qualifying putting him on pole for the feature. After a false start at the beginning we were off to the races with Chase King taking the lead on the start with Cardwell in chase. Eddie King Jr started back in the third row but was putting on a driving clinic as he quickly moved up into the third spot after just six laps. With the blistering pace King was setting, he found himself in lap traffic pretty quickly allowing Cardwell to eat into the lead he had built up. Cardwell took a look under the leader going into turn three but the engine let go dumping a ton of fluid on the track. Back under green and King JR was on a role as he worked the low line under Chase King for the top spot. Just 10 laps left and King complete hid drive to the front and took over the lead. Greg Martin also had a great car as he was able to work himself up into the top three. Trevor Sise had a strong top five run going but spun his #73 in turn four with just a handful of laps remaining. Eddie King Jr would hold off Greg Martin in the final laps to pick up his second win of the season.

The final event of the night would be the 20 lap Open Wheel feature. Logan Hickey put his #16 on pole by setting fast time in qualifying earlier in the day. With the green waving and lightning flashes in the sky it was Shon Flanary who took control of the impressive field with Hickey, Amos Bunch, Keith Smith and point leader Jody Puckett rounding out the top five. Hickey set fast time but seemed to have missed the setup a bit for the feature as he had his hands full with Bunch for the third spot. Amos Bunch was strong on the start moving into the second spot setting his sights on Flanary who had pulled away to a big lead already. Hickey continued his slide as both Keith Smith and Jody Puckett got by him moving him back to the back of the top five. Shon Flanary was never really challenged and went on to cruise to the win.
