In Pure Stock action feature one 01 Travis Farrow from Dromore took full advantage of his pole starting position. He was able to hold off all attempts from 43 Joey Schouten from Mount Forest during the first half of the race, and in the dying laps of the race it was 17 Nick Clarke from Mount Forest in his rear view mirror. At the checker it was Farrow, Clarke, Schouten with fourth going to 14 Luke Bos from Conn and rounding out the top five was 29 Rob Fountain from Edmonton Alberta.

Fans got to see some outstanding Mini Stock action, with 3 out of the top 10 ranked drivers in the province in the line up you know it is going to be great racing action! In feature one the fans weren’t disappointed. Even though any driver in this field could take their car to victory lane the main contenders would find themselves starting mid pack. From the drop of the green 68 Brandon Crumbie from Cookstown would improve on his fifth place starting position bring along 36 Corry Young out of Owen Sound with him. Then a lap thirteen caution would set the
front row for the run to the finish with 68 Brandon Crumbie on the inside and 36 Corry Young on the outside, all the rest of the field could do was watch as these two took off with Young gaining the advantage on the high side. At the finish it would be Young, Crumbie followed by 7 Paul Boyd from Harriston, fourth would go to 64 Dave Crumbie from Cookstown and rounding out the top five would be 06 Ryan Hardy from Markdale. Feature two started with a first lap stack up of cars in corner four as the third place running car 06 Ryan Hardy got into the second place car 73 Kyle Woods collecting almost the entire field. Luckily everyone only suffered cosmetic damage with the exception of 9 Tessa Cremasco from Mount Forest who had her car
almost stand on it’s nose after being hit by 35 Tim Tolton. Check out the video here On the restart 51 Clark Hartman from Waterloo jumped out in front of the field and use lap traffic to his advantage as he and 36 Corry Young would drive their way through the field with 7 Paul Boyd in hot pursuit. As the white flag came out Hartman would have to use every trick in his book to hold off 36 Young as he made one last dive inside coming to the checker but it was not enough. It would be Hartman, Young, Boyd then 68 Brandon Crumbie for fourth and rounding out the top five 35 Tim Tolton from Guelph.

V8 Thunder Stock action also saw some new cars this week as they would test driver and machine running three twenty lap features. In feature one 27 Mark Fenton from Tiverton would take advantage of his pole starting position and build a good lead on the rest of the field. The main battle in this race was for the second position between 17 Tristan Gill of Waterloo and 18 Terry Pardy of Mount Forest along with 277 Ray Flynn from Clinton. In the end it would be Gill for second, Pardy for third, Flynn for fourth and rounding out the top five was 05 Steve Brook from Hillsburgh.

This race was again all about starting position as pole sitter 17 Tristan Gill would take this race flag to flag in another great run. Close behind was 55 Scott Field from Hepworth who was busy working bugs out of his car which caused him an early exit from feature one. Third this time would go to 277 Ray Flynn, fourth 18 Terry Pardy with fifth going to 05 Steve Brook. In the third and final feature pole advantage did not work out for 05 Steve Brook and with a lap eight caution for a spin the field would reset with 55 Scott Field and 17 Tristan Gill on the front row and these two would battle inside and outside for the remainder of the race working through lap traffic. In the end the young gun from Waterloo just came up short to the veteran from Hepworth as it was Field, Gill followed by 18 Terry Pardy, fourth went to 277 Ray Flynn and fifth 5 Dave Grey Jr out of Hanover. Train action this week had a first never witnessed before a tie at the finish. With it being to close to call both teams decided to have the winner decided in train stay, best burn out wins.

Late Season Schedule Amendments

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Wheatland, MO – Lucas Oil MLRA officials recently made some schedule changes to the remaining dates on the 2014 schedule. Series and track officials from both Thunder Hill Speedway in Mayetta, Kansas and Outlaw Motorsports Park in Muskogee, Oklahoma have mutually agreed to forgo their scheduled dates.

Thunder Hill Speedway was scheduled for Saturday, August 23. The series worked to find a companion race for that date on Friday, August 22 and nothing emerged. Outlaw Motorsports Park had a two day race booked for October 19 and 20.

“We really take a hard look at putting two dates together for every race weekend,” commented Race Director Ernie Leftwich. “We aren’t always able to do that, but for some of our dates it’s a must. We hate to lose our second date at Thunder Hill, but it’s really in the best interest of all involved. Outlaw is a new ownership group for us to work with, and we had a couple of outstanding races there back in May. They have had a lot of big events this season, and it just wasn’t in the cards for us to race there again this year.”

The Lucas Oil MLRA is very much looking forward to returning to Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska, August 8 and 9. The annual King of the Hill Late Model Shootout is always a fan favorite, and draws the top competitors across the Midwest to the Friesen family’s beautiful facility.

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
