For Immediate Release – May 5th Race Results from I-37 Speedway

 

Race Track Action finishes ahead of the Rain Showers

 

by Bill Morris

 

After a week away from the track, drivers and race fans ignored the threat of possible rain showers on Friday and arrived at the track ready to race. The complete racing program was completed prior to the rains that came to the area overnight.

 

Top on the excitement meter was the Pure Stock Feature event. Starting in the fourth row, Devine’s “Dubba” Hawkins moved quickly to the front, but was soon challenged by Poteet’s Abe Mares IV, who moved up from his starting position in the fifth row. It appeared that a wheel to wheel battle was shaping up when Lytle’s Nathan Lorenz called for help from the Poteet Fire Department that stands by during the racing program. With the fire out it was time to return to racing action, but Hawkins, suffering mechanical problems, took his entry to the pits. This left Mares unchallenged on his way to the checkered flag. Following Mares to the finish line was Elmendorf’s Richard Hearns, and Three Rivers driver Sean Terry. The top two finishers in the Pure Stock Feature were both newcomers to the 2006 racing season.

 

In the popular IMCA modified feature event, the front row set sail from the start and while the rest of the field was busy racing they ran all but unchallenged to the winners circle. Adkins’ Jamie Campbell lead Shawn O’Banon for 20 laps. Rounding out the top three was Corpus Christi’s Chuck Perry, who moved up from his starting spot, outside the third row.

 

The Texas Outlaw Modifieds provided a crash-filled 20 lap feature event with only 2 cars finishing on the lead lap. Top honors went to San Antonio’s Chris Snocker, followed by SA neighbor John Nicks. In third place, one lap down, was Elmendorf’s Brian Shaw. The Sports Modified feature was won by Ingram’s Claude Jordan, ahead of Gonzales’ David Meridith who finished in the runner-up spot.

 

In the feature event for the Super Stocks, Seguin’s Patrick Kelly visited the winner’s circle for the second time in as many weeks. Kelly moved from his starting spot, outside the second row, to take the lead on lap three. From there to the checkered flag he put a “whuppin’” on his fellow competitors. Crossing the finish line in second was Somerset’s Howie Marx, with Elmendorf’s Gary Hunter taking third place honors.

 

Drivers and fans will gather again next Friday at the I-37 Speedway for another evening of exciting Dirt Track Auto Racing. The track is located on I-37 at the 101 mile marker. Races start at 8:00pm.

Beez Power 5.........How does July the 12th sound to you.

 

I know your cars are always front runner *!

 

THE AGE THING was only thrown out there because of the injustice of not letting your son race his car. He looks like he will become a good driver, maybe as good as the rest of the MARES CLAN.

 

By the way where was your father-in-law, we missed him at the track

 

Brightlight

 

(*Build it right the first time, it only cost 10% more to go first class) YOU CALL ME !
