IMG_9606.jpg (283678 bytes) Chad Valone held on to his Budweiser Super Late Model King of the Hill title after Doug Eck retired before the first lap was completed. Glenn Slaney won his fifth feature in the Spectator feature from his sixteenth starting spot. Doug Eck used the high groove to win his third of the season in the Super Late Models passing race leader Darrell Bossard with two laps remaining. Nathan Short led from the second lap of the caution strewn Outlaw Cadet feature for his fourth win of the season. Quincy Turner ended Justin Carlson’s win streak for his second of the season in the E-Mods. Stephanie Hilyer led every lap of the Lady Challenger feature for her first win of the season. Alex Froman won his first of the season in the first Super Challenger feature and Cale Crocker won his second in the second Super Challenger feature.

Darrell Bossard and Mike Knight were in the first row of the Super Late feature with Andy Kania and point leader Dick Barton in row two. Bossard led Knight to the stripe to lead lap one. Lap two saw both Kania and Barton pass Knight with Scott Gurdak and Doug Eck fighting for the fifth spot. Eck controlled fourth then passed Barton for third using the outside groove. Barton moved up the track after getting passed by Eck. Lap traffic became a factor on lap thirteen bunching the leaders and Eck got into the back of Kania just before the yellow flew for Wayne Mohawk in turn one. Kania retired during the yellow. Bossard, Eck, Barton, Boozel and Gurdak were the restart leaders. Bossard stayed in the middle groove with Eck up high for the next three laps then Merle Terry brought out yellow number two. Barton temporarily regained second for Eck on the restart then Eck came back one lap later. Dave Lyon spun forcing John Volpe to stop for caution three with eighteen of the twenty-five laps complete. Three more laps were completed then the yellow flew again for Lyon. Bossard and Eck continued to fight for the lead until lap twenty-three when Eck made the pass that won him the race. Bossard finished just ahead of Barton for second.
    
Scooter Pangrazio and Justin Carlson were the front row for the E-Mod makeup feature and Carlson quickly took control of the event with Pangrazio second, Dennis Lunger third, Nathan Short fourth and Greg Johnson fifth. Carlson was into lap traffic by lap five allowing Pangrazio to close. A lap nine spin by Quincy Turner brought out the first caution of the event. With a clear track after the restart Carlson set sail again as he and Pangrazio pulled way from the rest of the field. Turner and Troy Carr tangled with fifteen of the twenty laps complete for the second caution. Johnson was third after the restart with Lunger back to fourth and Short still fifth. Carlson took the two to go with a clear track in front of him and cruised through the final two laps for his seventh win and his sixth in a row.

Dascomb, Watson, Genco, Slaney and Dickerson were the restart leaders. One lap after the restart it was three wide for second with Slaney and Genco on either side of Watson. On lap twelve Dascomb lost the handle in four losing the top spot and causing the third caution. Slaney came out on top after Dascomb’s spin with Watson second followed by Genco, Dickerson and Dave Johnson. Genco took second away from Watson on the restart then the yellow flew for Reeves, Dascomb and Thompson in turn two. Johnson passed Watson for third on the last lap as Slaney won his fifth feature.

Norman, Nathan Short, Eugene Bevil, Troy Dorman and Mike Moore were the restart leaders. Short passed Norman on the restart then one lap later so did Moore. Steve Moynihan slowed for the second caution with three laps in. Short continued to lead the parade for one more lap then Norman had problems in turn two for the third caution. After the restart the race stayed green until lap ten when a spin by Bevil caused caution number four. Short, Moore, Phil Knight, Brian Crandall and Dorman were the top five. The yellow flew again with eleven laps complete for Rohrer then for debris one lap later. Short cruised through the final laps for his fourth win of the season.

IMG_9729.jpg (284459 bytes)A near spin by Brian Fardink on the first lap of the E-Mod feature nearly stopped the event but Fardink was able to recover as Nathan Short led the lap. With five laps complete Short was out in front by several car lengths with Quincy Turner second. Spins by Dana Wellington and Brett Van Guilder caused the first caution on lap six. Turner moved under Short on lap eight to take the top spot then one lap later Wellington brought out the second yellow. Turner, Short, Scooter Pangrazio, Justin Carlson and Ron Seeley were the restart leaders. Carlson passed Pangrazio for third on lap eleven then one lap later started to pressure Short for the second spot. Short was able to fend off Carlson but Turner remained several car lengths ahead. Carlson came back with one to go to grab the second spot as Turner won his second of the season.

IMG_9744.jpg (284324 bytes)Mark Crandall led the first lap of the first Super Challenger feature giving way to Alex Froman on lap two. A spin by Greg Rockwell slowed the race with three complete. Froman ran the rest of the race unchallenged for his first of the season.
