Teen Driver Tops Field of Pure Stocks


by Bill Morris


Moving quickly from his starting position outside the second row, Pleasanton's Devine Adler moved to the lead on lap two. The 15 year old then spent the next 18 laps holding off the field to take the checkered flag ahead of Boerne’s Robert Danielson and Sean Terry of Three Rivers. Action behind the leaders kept the fans excited as JD Reynolds collected a yellow flag when he lost his drive shaft on lap nine. The yellow waved again on lap 11 for Jourdanton’s Janell Hilla when her Chevy shed a rear wheel and axel, sending her to the pit.


In other Stock Car action the Super Stock competitors kept race fans on the edge of their seats, swapping the lead a number of times during the 20 lap feature event. When the checkered flag waved it was New Braunfels’ Driver Trey Votion taking home top honors. Votion started on the pole, but a spin caused him to fall to fourth place, but when the leaders slowed for lapped traffic Votion was able to move back to the front. Following Votion to the winners circle was Patrick Kelly of Seguin and Jed Rollins of Corpus Christi.


Eight entries took the green flag for the 20 lap Texas Outlaw Modifieds feature event. John Nicks of San Antonio lead the first half of the event, but on lap 10 spun into the infield turning the top spot over to Herb Shaw of Elmendorf. Shaw stayed at the front for the final 10 laps to capture the win ahead of Nicks, who had worked his way back to the runner-up spot ahead of Pleasanton’s Jim Kennet.


In the IMCA Sports Mods, it took Victoria’s Phillip Cantu just four laps to come from last place on the start to lead the field by lap four. Cantu inherited the lead when Pleasanton’s David Boggs caught fire and had to visit the infield fire crew. The fire was extinguished, and Boggs made a quick pit stop, returning to finish second in front of Converse’s MK Wallace.


Again this week the IMCA Sunoco Modifieds provided fans with all the excitement of traditional dirt track racing. It took 19 laps of the 20 lap feature event for Corpus Christi’s Dan Brown to work his way from his 11th place starting spot to the lead with a last lap pass on Shawn O’Banon. O’Banon who started at the front and was the leader until the final lap had to settle for second ahead of San Antonio’s Chip Godfredson, who worked his way from the back to finish in third spot.


Drivers and fans will gather for another evening of exciting dirt track racing action on Friday, June 23rd. The green flag is scheduled to fly at 8:00pm at the facility located on I-37,just south of Pleasanton at marker 101.
