Sat Aug 1 - Limited Sportsman & Weekly Divisions
Sun Aug 9 - Brian Kuykendall Benefit Race
After a couple of rain showers moved through as "hot laps" approached, the track was rolled in again, and Harris Speedway managed to get in another full night of racing! Over 100 entries were on hand, as everyone witnessed some great competition in nine divisions!
"SECA" Late Models headlined the evening, with "hot lap" qualifying, heats & a twenty lap feature! Thomas Robinson led from the start & held off John Ruggiero to pick up his first "SECA" Late Model victory! After many second & third place finishes throughout the season, Robinson broke through in commanding fashion! Ruggiero, Brian Carswell, Furman Parton & Greg Pilgrim finished second through fifth.
Donnie Barner joined in, winning his first Thunder Bomber feature over a sixteen car field!
Andy Mattison reeled off his second Crate Sportsman win in a row!
Nathan Pierce battled from the third row of the Pure Stock feature to make the pass on Michael Nelon on the last lap, to pick up another victory!
Cody Ussery held off Stacy Brock, picking up another Stock Four victory!
Chris Jackson eased away from Greg Dimsdale, in winning another Limited Sportsman feature!
Dwight Smith won a wild Renegade main event, that had plenty of action taking out a lot of contenders! Smith held off Tony Pierce & collected his first win of the season!
John Price collected his third win in a row in the Young Guns division!
J.J. Williams gained another Front Wheel Drive win, but it did not come easy as he worked his way through the field! Josh Ayers & Mitchell Coggins led early before exiting with issues ending their evenings.
