For Immediate Release: Tri-City Speedway Race Recap for 4/27/07


Five Area Cities Represented in the Winner’s Circle.


The Tri-City Speedway has without a doubt become the address for Auto Racing in the San Antonio area. Last Friday night, drivers from 13 different cities finished in the top three positions in the various racing divisions.


The Pure Stocks, a division designed to provide low cost racing to anyone who would like to enjoy the fun and excitement of dirt track racing, provided fans with the largest number of entries. Leading the field to the winner’s circle from his starting position on the rear of the line-up was San Antonio’s Adam Torres. Following Torres to the finish line was Mikey Faulkner, of Canyon Lake. Rounding out the top three in the Pure Stock feature event was 17-year-old Trevor Hilla, of Jourdanton.


Winner of the 15 lap Street Stock feature event was Barry Majors, racing out of Orange Grove. Taking home second place honors was Boerne’s Eric Knudtson, with San Antonio’s Joe Horne rounding out the top three finishers.


Pat Kelly, of Sequin, inherited the top spot and the win in the Super Stock division when Poteet’s Abe Mares expired an engine with just a few laps to go. Gary Hunter, of Elmendorf, was the event’s runner-up ahead of New Braunfel’s Trey Votion. The feature was a slam-bang door handle to door handle affair that had fans on their feet for most of the event.


In the IMCA Sport Mod feature event Mickey Helms, of Victoria captured top honors, ahead of Andy VanBlarcum of Robstown. Third place went to Shiner’s Vince Loudon.


In the IMCA Modifieds the winner was Shawn O’Banon, of Johnson City, who lead the complete race from his starting spot on the front row. He was pressured for most of the 20 laps by Kerrville’s Greg Dinsmore, but Dinsmore’s late race problems gave the second place money to San Antonio’s Curt Clegg. Following Clegg to the finish line was Corpus Christi driver Bobby Grobe.


Another night of exciting dirt track racing is scheduled for next Friday evening, with the first green flag waving at 8:00pm. Added to the program will be the fun and excitement of a Powder Puff event featuring the ladies. The Tri-City Speedway is located on the frontage road of I-37 at the 101 mile post
