Cardwell steals ’13 regular season opener while Engel’s hopes crashed

It was a very exciting night at Tennessee’s Action Track, as track officials raced the program along in order to beat the incoming weather. Despite their best efforts, the program was cut short, but only the final feature of the night was affected. Kicking off the night was the Mini Stock division, with David Singleton taking the win. The 2nd feature of the night would have been the Junior Hornet division, however only 1 driver made it to the track. The next feature was the Topless Modified, where Eric Hux took the win. Next was Classic, where the unofficial spokesman of the division came home with the win. Thunder & Lightning was up next, with reigning champion Robbie Comer showing the way when his engine would expire on lap 6, handing the win over to David Miley. Next was the Street Stock, where Adam Engel, in only his 2nd Street Stock feature, showed the way on lap 17 until contact into turn 3 from 2nd-place Jon Cook dashed both driver’s chances, handing the win over to Chuck Johnson. The final feature of the night was the Limited Late Model division. They would have some trouble settling down and getting going, but once they did, the action was fast & furious. In qualifying, Adam Beeler set the fast time at 13.559, which just happened to be a shade quicker than the previous Limited Late Model divisional record he set on September 29th, 2012, when he lowered the time to 16.625. Beeler would show the way, early, but on lap 16, off turn 2, the engine in his machine would grenade. Jason Cardwell was in the 2nd spot. With rain on the way, track officials quickly worked to throw dirt on the oil to attempt to get the program back underway, when the skies opened up under the caution, ending the program for the night.

Join us next Saturday night for another great night of racing excitement as we kick off the 2013 points racing season! You’ll see action in all 7 classes!

Later in the night during the feature for Street Stock, Shannon Emery would go for a wild ride in the #69 machine as he would barrel roll at least 5 times. He would be ok. In Mini Stock, Rocky McNabb would be the winner. In Topless Modified, it was all Eric Hux. Next was Classic where it was anybody’s race as Bobby Pressley prevailed. In Thunder & Lightning, Apaches Quinton held off a hard charge from Landon Williamson.

Closing the night out was the Sweetheart 52 where Ryan King and Adam Beeler raced tooth-and-nail to the checkers, by Ryan King would take the victory.
