The GAM’s would be the first trophy dash out, and Justin Fornstrom would
take the win beating Shawn Trackwell and Tommy Evans. Next were the Mini Sprints with Larry Pachello winning over Dwight Hoelscher and Brent Rees. Brent had a scary moment in hot laps when his right rear wheel came off in turn four and caused the car to spin hitting the wall. Brent had a bit of a limp when he climbed out of the car, but was otherwise unhurt. Good thing tracks have catch fencing, otherwise his wheel would have been in the grandstands.
Alex Amen continues to dominate the Modlites as he won the dash over Roger
Hornby and Bill McClintock. The Warriors dash had a first lap crash that sent
me running for my life. Cory Mallo was trying the high groove to pass the
field. Coming into turn three, three wide, Cory got tagged by Ben Hendricks.
Cory almost had the car saved, but it veered hard left and slammed the wall at turn four by the track entrance. I thought the car was coming through the
entrance where I was standing, so I gave the knee a good test and ran like hell. Luckily, neither Cory or I were hurt. Cory’s night was done as there was heavy damage to the front of his car. Jay Brown went on to win his first dash. Jay is paralized form the waist down and uses hand controls to race. he has been getting better every week and this time he finally did it. Way to Go Jay!
Brian Ott held off Raymond Hanson and Mark Kelly to win the Pure Stock
trophy dash. Don Morrison won over Mark Asbill and Mark Ramey to take the Dwarf Cars dash. The Micro Sprints had a hard time keeping cars running before the green flag dropped. Three cars had to head for the pits and not make the dash. Jacob Wolfe won over Jon James and Johnny Powers. In the Super ProTrucks, Larry Stibitz from Laramie held on to win besting Chris Titus and Kevin Snow.
Justin Fornstrom would win his second GAM race of the night as he beat
Dwayne Winkels ( and yes Joe Starr, it is Dodge powered ) and Shawn Trackwell in the heat. Tom Evans Sr and Sam calvetti had some issues on the track and both were DQ’d for their actions. Stan Allen won the first heat for the Mini
Sprints over Tim Weland and Justin Mallo. Heat two found Larry Pachello in the winner circle again as he won over Larry Kassel and Paul Babich. Once again, Alex Amen won in the Modlites besting Roger Hornby and Bill McClintock. Kecia Doll and Johnny Powers had contact on the first lap of the Warriors heat, back to an original restart. From there it would be David Swanson working his way through the field to take the 12 lap race. Second went to Kecia Doll, third to Jessica Pandullo.
Mark Sopr found a line and managed to get his car to the front in the Pure
Stock heat. Sandy Thompson and Brian Ott gave chase but could not catch Sopr
as he won with Thompson second, Ott third. Two heats for the Dwarf Cars. First heat had Jacob Muehlbauer winning over Scott Weaver and Andy Rogers. Heat two found Don Morrison winning, Mark Asbill second and Barb Drager third. Two heats also for the Micro Sprints. Cory Rice has something break on his car on lap six, he would not finish. Robert DeRouchey held off Johnny Powers and Jacob Wolfe to take the win. In heat two, Cory Mallo won over Nick Rigali and Andy Farley. Kevin Snow and Larry Stibitz got together on the front chute during the third lap. Both to the back. Tim Adkins went had a good run as he beat Chris Titus to take the heat.
On to the Main Events. On the GAM main, it would be a tough race for Tom
Evans Sr. On lap eight in turn two, Shawn Trackwell spun and got hit by Sam
Calvetti. Evans tried to take the high groove and miss the wreck, but ended up in the tires and the track exit. No one was hurt, but Evans car had heavy
ritght front damage and would not continue. Calvetti also left the track with
unknown damage. Rodger Jessel driving a very good race, managed his way to the front and took the win beating Tommy Evans and Justin Fornstrom. Rodger said that this win was for his son Bill, who is still recovering in the hospital following as accident at work.
It was a very clean and caution free main for the Mini Sprints. Brent Rees
took an early lead and was gone. Dwight Hoelscher who would finish second and
Paul Babcih who finished third couls not keep up with Rees’ speeding car.
Nice recovery for Brent after hit practice incident.
Alex Amen completed the sweep by winning the main again beating Roger Hornby
and Bill McClintock. Alex had a super day by having quick time, winning the
dash, heat and main. Nice Job Alex!
David Swanson took his time, and made careful moves to advance his way to
the front. Starting in the back, this was the best way to get to the front.
Once the checkers dropped, Swanson had won the main beating Jessica Pandullo and Kecia Doll.
What a race in the Pure Stock Main. John Humphrey, Sandy Thompson and Mark
Sopr put on a clinic of how to run side by side. Humphrey lead most of the
race until on lap 23, Sopr managed to get to the inside and passed Humphrey for the lead. Humphrey then had to contend with Thompson who looked like she
would follow Sopr through the opening. Not to be as Humphrey closed the door.
Sopr went on to win with Humphrey coming in second and Thompson third.
On to the Dwarf Cars main event. Jacob Muehlbauer is always tough at BCS,
and tonight was no exception. Jacob worked his way to the front quickly, then
proceeded to lap the field. If he had just a few more laps, he probably would
have. Jacob took the main beating Stu Carlson and Andy Rogers.
Austin Farley is just super fast when in comes to the Micro Sprints. He
again showed just how quick he is as he took the main event winning over brother Andy and Nick Rigali.
The Super ProTrucks had their Mania main event, and with just four trucks,
it would be 35 laps. Larry Stibitz took the win besting Chris Titus, Tim
Adkins and Kevin Snow. However, in post race tech, Stibitz truck was found to have an illegal part in the engine, and he was DQ’d for the infraction. That moved everyone up giving the win to Chris Titus.
Recap notes provided by Charlotte Hughes.
Next Saturday will be a very busy and full night. If variety is the spice of
life, then you’ll want to be at BCS as nine divisions are scheduled to race.
The I-25 speedway GAM’s will be back and they put on a great show last year.
Along with the GAM’s, I’ve heard some of the Mini Stocks from I-25 may also
show up. And The Legneds will be back for last time this season. You don’t
want to miss this show.
