October 31 - November 1 - Monster Mash / V8 Ntls
Harris Speedway hosted the first part of the "big money showdown" for half of the divisions, this past weekend! Practice, qualifying & heat racing, led up to four 30 lap features, along with heats & mains in "Dwarfs" & a "Demolition Derby", to finish off the show Saturday night!
The "CRS" Renegade division "kicked off" the features with a "photo finish!" Early on, a bad crash in turn four ended the evening for Shane Harris & Dwight Smith! Michael Barbare & Scott Pulley were in contention through the first half of the feature, but mechanical issues ended their chance at victory. Lloyd Burgess led early & continued through the late stages of the event. Josh Burgess managed his way to second to set up an epic finish! With the two battling over the last few laps, Josh motored low off turn four, underneath Lloyd, to edge him by inches at the line, for the $2000 win! Donny Atkins, Trevor Dimsdale & James Hudson finished third through fifth.
The "Dwarf Cars" also had their version of a "close finish!" Brandon Lambert led early, but contact a couple of times with B.J. Cochcroft, would send both back in the field! Don Beard led until the last lap, before Cochcroft slipped by to pick up the win, with Beard, Lambert, Kevin Fulmer & Greg Morten finishing second through fifth.
The "Omni Source" Pure Stock division ran another "wild feature" to the finish! Mitch Sill led early, with Nathan Pierce beside for many laps! Robin Caldwell, Michael Nelon, Clyde Scott, Chris Jones, Alex Vance, Bobby Williams, Josh Ayers, Dustin Morris & Wayne Clayton battled behind them for every spot! Various problems sent many of these contenders to the pits or to the back of the field many times before the race would be decided! A flat tire took Sill out of contention for the win! Nathan Pierce held off Robin Caldwell, to win by a fender, in another "wild one!" Pierce secured the $2000 victory, while Caldwell, Chris Jones, Alex Vance & Mitch Sill rounded out the top five.
The Young Guns division had seventeen cars start their thirty lap feature! Coby Lambert led early before Jasper Brown took the lead. Brown led until very late, before shredding a right rear tire, sending him to the pits & the back of the field! A lot of strong contenders, such as Blake Harris, Coby Lambert, Bryan Belue, John Price & Hannah Wall would not make it to the finish, for various problems! Hunter Anthony led late & held off Austin Wiley & Jasper Brown to pick up the $1500 win! Blake Dill & Brittnye Evans finished fourth & fifth.
Wally Fowler led from "start to finish" in the "Bennett Supply " Limited Sportsman division feature! Danny Tessnier ran a strong second throughout, while Greg Dimsdale & Chris Jackson battled for third & fourth until the finish! Fowler picked up the $2000 win, while Tessnier, Dimsdale, Jackson & Brian Carswell finished second through fifth.
Brian Kiser won the "Ultimate Destruction Demolition Derby" at the end of the night!
