Texas Thunder Speedway, 4/14/07

By J M Hallas

 

Killeen, Tx.(April 14, 2007) Cold, blustery conditions didn’t deter over 100 race teams from signing in to the pits as Texas Thunder Speedway resumed it’s racing after losing night to snow the previous week. Diehard fans huddled together to watch their favorites in action, along with the Southern States Midget Association as they competed on the high-banked 1/4 dirt track. The winds made for tricky track conditions with the turns 3-4 going dry slick and dusty early, while the leeward end retained it’s moisture.

 

Burke Bags Southern States Midget Main

Ronnie Burke jr found the fast groove early and used it to his advantage as he ran away from the rest of the field in the Southern States Midgets 15 lap feature. Burke, who run high into turn 1 then drop low in turn 2 letting the banking propel him down the back stretch, jumped into the lead as the green waved.

 

Roland Ayo and Aaron Kirk battled for second as Burke motored ahead. Kirk and Ayo would make contact in turn 4 stacking up the pack causing Evan Pardo to spin and bring out a yellow on lap 2. During the caution, Brandon Mollier pulled to the infield with problems. On the restart, Kirk challenged Burke looking inside, but Burke’s momentum off the top would be enough to hold Kirk off.

 

At midway, Burke was again pulling away from Kirk who was now being hounded by Doug McCune for second. Kirk and McCune were wheel to wheel on lap 10 and had to go three wide around a slower car on lap 11. McCune got the spot as that duo sliced and diced through traffic, while Burke was holding a commanding lead. At the checkers it was Burke in the Amerigas, Peak Antifreeze, Ventum Energy, Hawk Chevy, Beast Chassis gabbing the victory.

Egbert Eases Away in Modified Main

Defending IMCA Modified Regional Champion, PJ Egbert worked his way up from mid-pack and passed early leader Jason Hoffman near halfway. From there Egbert eased away from the field to add yet another Texas Thunder Speedway victory to his impressive total.

 

Hoffman got the top spot when polesitter Jason Hubert got sideways at the drop of green and backed up the inside row. Egbert, who started outside row 5, was battling for fourth with Scotty Heintzman by the end of lap 1. Egbert took the position on lap 3, while Keith Green and Keith White ran side by side for fifth. Heintzman’s top five run ended when he bicycled his modified going into turn 3.

 

Egbert was still on the charge getting around Allen Waltermire and Andrew Simmerman to move into second. Simmerman fought back retaking his spot, while current points leader Pat McGuire moved into fifth. Egbert snagged second for good on lap 6 and went in search of leader, Hoffman. Egbert found Hoffman when yellow for Wesley Hamilton’s stalled car re-racked the pack.

 

As green waved for the restart, Egbert jumped around Hoffman leaving him wheel to wheel with McGuire for second. At halfway the top five were Egbert, McGuire, Hoffman, Simmerman and Green. Green took fourth from Simmerman on lap 14 with White following through for fifth. Yellow waved again on lap 15 when Waltermire expired a motor.

 

Egbert got away clean on green, with Hoffman retaking second from McGuire. As Egbert eased away, White and Green battled for fourth. As the white was shown, Egbert had built a nice margin over Hoffman and McGuire while Simmerman and Ken Old were fighting for sixth. At the checkers it was Egbert driving the Phils Motorsports, Connell Chevrolet, D & D Cabinets, Wel Ran Construction, Pflugerville Engine & Machine, Donnie Moore Race Cars taking the victory.

“We finally got the car dialed in,” replied Egbert.”I just maneuvered around everybody and tried to stay out of the ruts. Starting back that far you just see what everyone else does and try to get the front as fast as possible.”

“You kind of worry about things on track like this. I’ve lost races at Texas Thunder from breaking stuff while leading a race. I try to stay out of them(ruts) the best I can. Running two cars gives you a heads up over people that aren’t. I can get feel for what the track is actually doing.”

Stevens Steady in SportMod Scramble

Shad Stevens would lead flag to flag in the IMCA Southern SportMod main, but it wouldn’t be an easy win. Stevens got out front going into turn 1, while Robert Williams and Brandon Stewart battled side by side for second. PJ Egbert got by Kenny Ware on lap 1 for fourth then got loose in turn in turn 3 backing up the field. Two-time defending IMCA Southern SportMod champ, Keith White got around Kevin Green and Ware to take fifth on lap 2.

 

White then tried a slide job on Egbert going into turn 1 that came up a little short with the two making contact and White falling to eighth. By lap 5 Stevens had built a big lead over Williams, Stewart, Egbert and K. Green. White then began moving back up, getting a good battle with Ware for sixth. Yellow waved on lap 8 when TJ Green got into Ware sending him around in turns 3-4. Under Yellow Stewart pulled off from the third spot..

 

On the restart, Egbert got past Williams for second as Stevens held the point. White then got by Williams for third and was back on Egbert’s bumper. White again tried the slide job on Egbert, but backed off when contact was eminent. Williams slipped up on lap 11 with K. Green getting the fourth spot. In the final laps Egbert closed in on Stevens and twice got a run on him trying to dive low out of turn 4. Stevens held steady and was able fend off the challenges to take the checkers in the Anderson Auto Salvage, Cen-Tex Motorsports, All Sports Trophy, Vinyl & Graphics by White, Bobs Paint and Body, Smileys Chassis, powered by a motor built by his father.

“It went pretty good ,” said Stevens. “We’ve had DNF’s all year long and we finally finished a race. We just happened to be in front. We’ve done some work on the car trying to get it turn and work good. BJ Dulock at Cen-Tex Motorsports has given me a lot of help.”

“There’s really only one game I’ve got and that’s just what I bring to the track”added Stevens about having to step up with drivers like PJ Egbert and Keith White in his class. “I don’t have the pocketbook some of the guys have and just do the best I can.”
