Heart O Texas Speedway, local class reports 7/21/06

By J M Hallas


In the IMCA classes features were started straight up by points with no heat races run as part of mid-season championship night.


Warren holds off Egbert for hard earned win

In the IMCA Modifieds, points leader Ronnie Warren and Justin Radcliff led the 15-car field to green for the 20 lap A-main. Warren jumped out front as the green waved with current IMCA Regional points leader, P J Egbert taking second. Defending champion Keith Green and Kenny Stone battled side by side for fourth. Green then got by Radcliff for third, while Pat McGuire was passing Stone for fifth.


Egbert hung on the rear bumper of Warren, while McGuire on the high side worked beside Radcliff for fourth. J P Dowell was quickly up to sixth on lap 4 after starting at the back of the field. Warren and Egbert then increased their advantage on Green and McGuire with a five fight raging between Radcliff, Stone, Steven Carter, Dowell and Chad Estes for fifth.


As the crossed flags were shown the top five of Warren, Egbert, Green, McGuire and Stone remained the same. Egbert was still hot on Warren’s heels when yellow waved on lap 14 when Tanner Whitmire and Cody Daniels tangled in turn 4. Once back to green, Egbert tried the high groove on Warren for the lead. The two were wheel to wheel on lap15 with Egbert leading by a bumper at the line.


Warren fought back to retake the point on lap 16 before caution waved for debris of Radcliff’s car in turn 1. On the restart, Egbert once again took a peek up top, but fell back in line. Egbert continued to pressure Warren in the final laps and took one last attempt as the white waved. At the checkers it was Warren in the Affiliated Auto Glass, BG Products, Qwik Chassis taking the win.

White goes Wire to Wire

The IMCA Southern SportMod main saw 24 of the 25 cars take the green with defending Southern SportMod National Champion, Keith White beating Robert Black into turn 1.

With everyone hugging the bottom, White increased his lead while an eight car battle raged in the middle of the pack for position.


At halfway it was White, Black, Chris Cogburn, Dillon Smith and Shannon Dulock in the top five. White caught lap traffic on lap 12 but got a break when K. Green and Chase Jupe spun in turn 3. With clear track ahead, White eased away from Black, while Brandon Stewart did a 360 and kept going. Yellow waved again on lap 13 when T J Green spun and collected Donald Price and Chris Wills. Under yellow, Cogburn was sent to the pits from third because of a loose bumper.


White got away as green waved again, while Black was battling side by side with Smith for second. With five to go, White had a five car gap to Black who was still being chased closely by Smith. Jupe took a short flight when he jumped the rear wheel of Jimmie Thomas, spun but was able to continue on lap 16 with no caution. White held his margin of four car lengths as the checkers waved another time for the veteran hotshoe in the Tracy’s Auto Sales, Pflugerville Machine, Central Texas Pest Control, Stewarts Painting, Manhiem Auto Auction, CRC Racing, Smileys Chassis.
