Winston Mo.-I-35 Speedway has seen some great action the last few weeks. A week ago storm damage and non drying conditions forced track officials to cancel last Saturdays program, two days ago the USMTS put on a good show and tonight the regulars of I-35 put on a great show on an excellent racing surface. Trenton Coke night came to I-35 Speedway and the fans were treated to great racing action that only the drivers of I-35 Speedway can deliver.
Truman Asher from St. Joseph wired the field in the IMCA Sport Mods to pick win number one this season. Asher started racing at I-35 around midseason and has been fast since returning. Clint Baker had another good run as he came up through the field for a second place showing, points leader Mike Tanner came home third, Randy Ainsworth was fourth and JJ Baumli fifth. Caleb Dennis started 24th and finished 10th to win the hard charger.
“Flyin” Mike Ryun of Pleasent Valley picked up win number six in impressive fashion. Ryun used a great move in three and four to pass two cars coming to take the white flag. Mike Taylor Jr. had a good run leading most of the race but came up short finishing second, last weeks winner Buz Kaster was third, Tim Shields was fourth and Steven Dibben was fifth. Ryun also took home the hard charger.
Trenton Missouri’s Brad Whitney roared back to victory lane tonight, his second win since the Stock Cars returned to the IMCA sanction. Whitney battled Bennie Turner for a few laps before securing the top spot. Points leader Gene Stigall came home
second after starting ninth, a good run for Jon Boller III in third, Josh Steele was fourth and Thomas Roberts fifth. Stigall took home the hard charger.
After post race inspection in the IMCA Modifieds Kearney Missouri driver Darren Shaw was declared the winner. The win gives Shaw four on the year as he pulls into a tie with Shay Woods for most wins in the division. Dennis O’Neal had another good run
finishing second, Dean Wray was third, Bud Wilson driving Levi Trimbles car was fourth and Jim Hopkins finished fifth. O’Neal picked up the hard charger.
Bruce Fair of Trenton racked up win number five on the year holding off Alex Anderson who had his best run in second.
