Stapp Strikes Again in Super Stocks

Two-time, defending track champion Cary Stapp easily set fast time, tying the current track record with a lap of 16.367. Stapp drew the fourth starting spot putting Keith Garrett and David Webster on the front row. Garrett jumped into the lead on green with Doug Ayers getting second, leaving Webster and Chad Menard side by side for third. Ayers had the hood fly open and was forced to pit, moving Menard into second.


Stapp began his charge on lap 4 once the field sorted out when he got by Clint Lafont for fourth. Up front, Garrett’s chance to grab a win went sour when he broke, handing over the lead to Menard on lap 5. Menard and Webster were door to door for lead on lap 6 , but yellow waved for debris. The top four stayed hooked up noise to tail on the restart until Menard got loose in turn 4 giving Webster the shot to snare the top spot as Staap grabbed second.


Menard and Mark Mathias made contact as they fought for third sending Menard around to bring out the yellow. Webster and Stapp broke away from the pack when green waved again. Stapp then began his look for the lead, taking looks inside, while Terry Tschoerner and Gary Birmingham battled for fourth. Webster and Stapp were able to put some distance on the third place scrap between Lafont and Duane Toyne who took the spot on lap 16.


Te. Tschoerner brought out the yellow after getting turned around by Birmingham who found his way to the back of the pack. As Webster, Stapp and Toyne got away once back to green, Birmingham jumped the restart, for which he’d be penalized for in the final results(or next caution, which never came). At halfway it was still Webster holding off Stapp, Toyne Lafont and Te. Tschoerner.


Stapp was continuing to duck inside and on lap 31 was able to get along side Webster and take the point on lap 32. Once clear, Stapp was able to put some distance on Webster and Toyne who had built a margin over Lafont and Te. Tschoerner. Webster and Toyne had a brief side by side battle with Toyne securing second on lap 41. Up front Stapp increased his lead as the two fought for second. At the checkers it was Stapp in the back to back wins, by nearly two seconds over Toyne.

Hobby Stocks

Kevin Bowen jumped got the early lead in the 20 lap Hobby Stock feature. James Huff put pressure on Bowen until he grabbed the top spot on lap 4 bringing Joey Tschoerner along to second. The top three then eased away from a four car scramble for fourth between, Gary Chancellor, Rick Latimer, Aaron Brungot and Steve Osborne. That battle came to a head on lap 11 when Chancellor, Latimer and Osborne went three wide for position. As the trio came out of turn 2, Osborne ran out of room, ending up in the grass off the back stretch. Chancellor and Latimer made contact sending Latimer to the infield bringing out the yellow and Chancellor to the tail.


Huff got a slight edge on green after Tschoerner got loose in turn 4. Tschoerner didn’t waste any time getting back to Huff. Huff appeared to move over on lap 16 and let THR regulars Tschoerner, Bowen and Latimer by to settle it among the points chasers. The top three caught lapped traffic in the finals laps with Tschoerner getting by. Bowen and Latimer got stacked behind the slower car and making contact. As Tschoerner was driving off for the win, Latimer broke and had to coast across the line, losing several spots.

Fitch caught B. Reed, with Rahn challenging Art Ganss for third. On lap 8 B. Reed and Fitch were side by side for the lead as Floyd Reed and Jason Kelly joined Rahn and Ganss in the scramble for third. B. Reed was able to hold of Fitch, but the fight for third saw positions change nearly every corner. That battle boiled over when Rahn, Ganss and F. Reed tried to go three wide causing Ganss to spin. B. Reed was able to put some distance on Fitch after the restart, while Fitch tried to fend off F. Reed. At the checkers it was B. Reed taking the victory by a comfortable margin.
