I-37 Season Opener Resuls, 4/7/06


Recommended Posts

For Immediate Release: April 7th – by Bill Morris (contact 512 914-5551)

 

Dirt Track Fans and Drivers Race Into the 2006 Season at the I-37 Speedway.

 

When the pit area at the I-37 Speedway opened, over 60 drivers, in five different divisions, were lined up to enter their cars to compete in the 2006 season. Last Saturday night the “green flag” waved over the season’s first racing program. The exciting competition of side-by-side racing again provided the fans with an evening of enjoyable and affordable family style entertainment.

 

Highlighting the evening’s action was the feature event for the IMCA Modifieds. Corpus Christi’s Steve Whiteaker Jr. was the event winner, but had to do it the “hard way”. Whiteaker was involved in an early race fender-bender that forced him to the pit area to inspect the damage. A trip to the pits placed him at the rear of the field when he returned to the track. From the “back of the pack” he was able to move around all the competitors, passing runner-up Chris Swenson, of Comfort, with just two laps remaining.

 

In other Modified action the Southern Sport Modified feature was won by David Boggs, ahead of Shiner’s Vince Loudon and Gonzales’ David Meredith. In the feature event for the Texas Outlaw Modifieds top honors went to Herb Shaw of Elmendorf followed by Gary Gyolia racing out of San Antonio.

 

In the Super Stock competition, Sheridan’s Scott Turner captured the checkered flag in the feature event with Howie Marx, of Summerset, taking second place. Feature winner in the Pure Stock division was Rusty Henley, of San Antonio, followed by Devine’s Royce Hawkins and Atkins’ Danny Schroat.

 

Action at the I-37 Speedway is scheduled for every Friday night, with racing starting at 8:00pm. The track is located on I-37 at the 101 mile marker.
