Comer takes ST-Shootout; Lowe pounces on Cardwell trouble

Another great Saturday night of racing action is in the books, despite the heavy rains and storms that passed through on Saturday. Track workers deserve an extra pat on the back this week after getting the speedway ready after the rain finally stopped for good around 3:30p. Robbie Comer set fast time and increased his win-streak to 9 races-yes, NINE-by winning the Super Truck Shootout. Chuck McMahan claimed the win in Mod-Mini, while Logan Dukes claimed the win in Classic. Keith Gregory returned to victory lane, snapping Mike Lewis’ victory lane-stranglehold, while Jason Ogle broke the string of bad luck by taking the win in Street Stock after Bradly Lewelling cut a tire mid-way in the feature.

Shawn Henry claimed the win in Mini-Stock!

Metler gets win in MS; Collins powers to LM win

Another great Saturday Night is in the books at 411, and the action was great all night long. Jimmy Elliott won in Mod-Mini, but was DQed at the scales, handing the win to Terry Poore. Phil Blackford wins in Classic, Mike Lewis takes the win in Topless Modified, Brad Lowe — yes, that Brad Lowe, won in Street Stock, while Robbie Comer and Josh Collins got wins in both Super Truck and Late Model, while Shawn Henry lapped the field in Mini-Stock before refusing to pull his valve cover in post-race tech, handing the win over to Tommy Metler. The birthday boy, Cody Courtney, took the win in Mini-Late Model. The night wasn’t controversy free though, as Brad Lowe set the Late Model fast time in his new ride, before being deemed too light at the scales, handing over the fast time to Adam Beeler. He spun a 4, and Ryan King won the Hoosier Dash. He would last through 3 initial start attempts before his left-rear tire flew off his machine, ending his and Mark Leach’s night.
