Boggs serves up a win in the Leftover

 

 

With just one race left in the 2017 season it was a packed crowd with nearly 150 cars on hand to do battle one last time.
First of the five scheduled classes in action was the Crate Late Models. The green waved over the huge field and it was outside pole sitter Greg Martin who took the lead ahead of Logan Roberson, Rusty Ballenger, Jesse Lowe and Pierce McCarter your top five on the start. The caution waved pretty quickly as Ruben Mayfield went for a spin in turn four. Back to racing and Roberson lost the second spot as Ballenger slipped past on the restart. Ross White had a very successful 2017 winning the Crate Championship at Volunteer Speedway but ran into some trouble this night as he went for a spin slowing the pace. Roberson slipped back on the start but had found something in his #17 as he began moving back to the front taking the second position back from Ballenger. Jesse Lowe also had an incredible season in the Crates and it was another great night as he had a strong run moving up into the top three. Now being back up into the second spot, Roberson had reeled in the leader. On lap 15 the drive back to the front was complete as he moved past Greg Martin into the lead. A caution on lap 20 would slow the pace allowing Martin to put himself back on the bumper of the young leader. Roberson picked his way through slower traffic and pulled away in the second half of the race to pick up the win.

Next up was the Open Wheel Modified feature. A huge field of over 30 cars were on hand to do battle for the $1,200 paycheck. 2017 Steelhead Late Model Champion Chase King had his Open Wheel in the house and he set fast time in qualifying earning the pole for the A main. King would take control on the start ahead of Don Adam, Tommy Bailey, Nathan Vance and Blake Brown. Wayne James and Jeff Hamby had a great battle the majority of the race as they duked it out for a spot just outside the top five. James had some smoke start to flow the rear of his #4 machine as the laps ticked on. The top two had put some distance on Bailey who still held down the third spot. Lap traffic would come into play as Adams chewed into the lead King had built up. After studying the leader over for several laps Adams made his move and took the top spot away. The night would go from a potential victory for king to disaster as spun while running in the second spot later in the race. Adams would hold on to pick up the big win.

Jackie Boggs would earn the pole for the 50 lap $5,000 to win Super Late Model feature. Boggs took the lead on the start ahead of Casey Roberts in his new Blunt Motorsports ride, Shannon Buckingham, Steve Smith and Devan Moran. A spin by Bobby Giffin would slow the pace in the early laps. Moran and Smith had a great battle for the fourth spot with Smith riding the high line off both turns. Boggs quickly began to run away from the field as the early laps ticked away. Buckingham had the pressure turned up on Roberts for the second spot but caught the berm on the inside going into turn one damaging the front end of the #50 ending his night. With Buckingham on the trailer that moved Smith up into the third spot. Back under green and Robert would dive low on the restart but Boggs was too strong as he rocketed down the back pulling away from the pack. 21 laps in and the top two again had pulled away from the great fight for third between Smith and Moran. Lap traffic once again came into play but Boggs picked his way through them like a pro keeping his lead over Roberts who was giving chase. At the end it was all Boggs as he cruised to the second annual Leftover win.

Street Stock Nationals Champion Eddie Stewart picked up where he left off by setting fast time in qualifying putting the #119 back on the pole for the nights feature. Jeffery Melton, Kurt Owens, David Clark and Josh Brock were your top five on the start of the 25 lap feature. Kurt Owens made a power move pretty early on getting past Melton and taking over the runner up spot. Shannon Emery spun in his qualifying lap but that didn’t stop him from working his way up into the top five even before the halfway mark. The caution waved as McKenlee Hall, Zach Dennis and Dalton King got together. All would continue but Dennis would slow a couple laps later and retire for the evening. The #119 of Stewart clearly had hit his setup just right as he pulled out to a big lead over Owens and Melton. The caution flew again as Josh Henry and Glen Hounshell got together sending the 20 spinning collecting the #3 of Bret Banks. Emery once again picked up another spot as he got himself into the top five. Up front it was all Eddie Stewart as he went on to pick up his second straight win.

The final event of the night and the 2017 season would be the Sportsman feature. Jed Emert would put his #98 on top of the scoreboard ahead of Brad Seagle, Rex Coffey, Brandon Miller and Travis Fultz your top five. A quick caution for the #15 of Michael Loyd slowed the pace on the second lap. Back under green and Coffey took a look inside Seagle trying to get the second spot away. Trouble for Zach Shannon as he slowed bringing out the caution ending his night early. A wild restart with Coffey, Seagle and Fultz going three wide down the back for the third spot with Seagle somehow hanging on to the position. A scary moment as the #71 of Clay Greenfield got into the turn one wall bringing out the caution. Greenfield would have an injured wrist as a result of the crash and we wish him a speedy recovery. Back under green it was all Jed Emert who had a rocket on the night pulling away from the pack and going on to pick up the win.
