Taylor’s last-turn heroics at Estevan yield Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour checkers

July 9th, 2015

ESTEVAN, Sask. – First he raced from 19th to second in his “B” feature to advance to the Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic main event at Estevan Motor Speedway.

Then Jeff Taylor started 13th and won Monday’s Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified headliner in dramatic fashion with a last-turn pass of Aaron Turnbull.

“It was awesome,” the defending tour champion said from victory lane. “I had a good car and was able to get a line nobody else was running.”

Turnbull, Spencer Wilson, new point leader Hunter Marriott and Ricky Thornton Jr. completed the top five. Thornton also came from the “B” features and advanced 10 spots.

New series track records were set with 83 Modified and 39 Stock Car entries. As was the case on opening night at Nodak Speedway, drivers from 10 states and Canada filled out the Modified fea­ture field.

The 2013 tour king, Turnbull drew the pole start while Taylor worked his way up from mid-pack. Taylor made the most of the higher line as the frontrunners contended with lapped traffic. He shot in­side Turnbull coming out of the final turn to take the $2,100 win by not much more than a car length.

Already on the ballot for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, Taylor had finished 19th Sunday at Minot while Wilson was 21st.

Elijah Zevenbergen, also a series champion two years ago, topped the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature ahead of opening night winner Brandon Czarapata to earn $800. They’re now tied atop the point stand­ings for that division.

The series is at Williston Basin Speedway on Tuesday for the third of its six installments.

Another record car count set as Taylor builds on Dakota Tour success at Estevan

July 11th, 2014

ESTEVAN, Sask.– Despite leading all 30 laps, Jeff Taylor got to enjoy Monday’s Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour main event at Estevan Motor Speedway from a couple perspec­tives.

Taylor won his second IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified tour event in as many nights while Steven Pfeifer was second and Shawn Anderson fourth in Taylor Chassis rides. “I’d have been happy with either one of them passing me and winning,” Taylor said. “I’d have been tickled to death.” The win was worth $2,000 and came in a contest slowed by caution just once, on lap 12. Curt Lund was third and Shawn Anderson fifth.

Seventy-six Modifieds from 14 states and Canada ran at Estevan. That’s the most ever entries for the division north of the border as the series has set new car count records in the first two events of 2014.

“I never thought about winning the first two races of this series. It’s the first time I’ve ever started a series like this,” said Taylor, who’d topped the Sunday show at Nodak Speedway. “There is some luck involved but we’ve got a good car.”

Dalton Flory topped the $800 to win tour feature for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, taking the check­ers ahead of defending champion and first-night winner Elijah Zevenbergen.

“It’s awesome to get a win on this tour because you’ve got all these heavy hittershere,” said Flory, who led every time around in a 25-lapper that went green to checkers. “I could run with them last year so it was good to be able to show what I can do in a race car.”

Flory encountered his first lapped cars just 10 circuits in and caught up with slower cars again with five to go. Zevenbergen peeked inside a couple times but couldn’t catch Flory. He’d won four straight tour starts dating back to lst July 9.

Brendon LaBatte, Kody Scholpp and Jake Nelson ended third through fifth, respectively. Primary sponsors for Flory’s ride are his parents Joe and Misti.

A new series record 36 Stock Cars saw action Monday, besting the previous mark set the night before at Minot by two.

The third of six series installments takes both divisions to Williston Basin Speedway for a Tues­day, July 8 program. Pit gates open at 2 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5 p.m., hot laps are at 6 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m.
