Kansas City, KS – What a difference a week makes. On opening night Cody Agler, Modified driver from Emporia, looked to be heading to the feature win. Unfortunately, it would never happen. Agler would lose his motor late in the race while leading by a large margin. Certainly one of the lows in racing.
Fast forward 7 days later and it was a long week for Agler. The youngster and his team would have to pull a motor, deliver it back to his motor builder, Gary Stinnett and wait for the call to come another one when it was ready. It didn’t take long and Stinnett had their new bullet done. Agler and crew went back and put the motor in and got the car ready for night #2.
Hungry for the win, it didn’t take Agler long to find the front of the field. Once at the top spot, he would hold on (and his motor would hold on) for the victory.
This Friday night, April, 27, Agler will have a shot at winning race #2 as Lakeside Speedway hosts In The Pits.Net Night At The Races.
In The Pits.Net is a racing website that provides coverage of local, grass-roots racing in the area. Original content, stories, results, pictures and video can be seen on the site, which is 100% free! In honor of being a 100% free website, In The Pits will be giving a total of $100, in cash, for the hard chargers in each of the Modified, Grand National, Factory Stock & B Mod A Mains! The driver that passes the most cars in the feature will be given $25.00 cash at the end of the night!
Justin Seifert won a wild one in the Factory Stock class. Seifert trailed Cliff Hedges Jr. going into the last corner of the feature. Going into the final turn, Seifert gave Hedges the bump and run to take home the win.
The B Modified feature was dominated by last year’s Modified Track Champion at Lakeside Speedway, Aaron Marrant. Marrant put his hot rod on the top side of the track and flirted with the cushion all night long as he went on to the win.
Gary Donaldson has taken the Grand National class by storm during the first 2 races of the season. Last Friday night Donaldson followed up his opening night win, by promising his wife that he would get another one for her birthday, which was last week. His promise came true as he sprinted out to the lead and drove away from the rest of the field.
In The Pits.Net Night At The Races will see the spectator gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps are at 7:00 p.m. and the first heat goes green promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Adult admission is $12, kids 8 to 14 are just $6 and children 7 and under are always FREE at Lakeside Speedway!
