Budget Pick-n-Pull Night Texas Thunder Speedway, 4/12/08

By J M Hallas

 

Killeen, Tx., (April 12th, 2008) Budget Pick-n-Pull sponsored the nights activities that included the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Southern Sportmods, IMCA Stock Cars, and Texas Twisters as part of Texas Thunder Speedway's regular program. Tonight's added attraction was the Southern States Midget Association.

 

A long time staple around tracks in the Midwest, the class now somewhat a dying breed, especially in Texas feature the horsepower of a dragster, combined with the weight of a feather. These mainly 4 cylinder dynamo's sail around the track at incredible speeds, thrilling the fans.

 

 

Pardo Posts First Ever SSMA Victory

 

Doug McCune used a good jump at the start of the 15-lap Southern States Midget Association feature race. Heat winer, Evan Pardo moved along and past Brandon Moellier for second and quickly caught McCune for the lead. Pardo got past McCune on the backstretch for the lead on lap 4, while Danny Burke got around Moellier for third.

 

 

Aaron Kirk took fourth from Moellier on lap on lap 5. At halfway it was Pardo, opening up his lead, McCune, Burke, Kirk and Moellier in the top five. Kirk closed in on Burke for third and began to look inside. Kirk and Burke then went three wide splitting a slower car, with Kirk getting the spot. Pardo had nearly a half track lead on McCune as the white as shown and easily ran to the checkers unchallenged to pick up his first ever SSMA feature win.

PJ Puts Another Win in Resume

 

Multi-time track champion, IMCA Modified Rookie f the Year and Regional Champion, P J Egbert added yet another win to his impressive totals. P J Egbert, who started outside row 5, worked his way through the field and got the top spot just before halfway. After a late race caution, P J Egbert had to hold off the challenge of class newcomer, Benji Kirkpatrick to core yet another win.

 

 

Jacob Dunn and Brain Killingsworth paced the full field of 24 cars to green for the 20-lap main event. Killingsworth was first into turn 1 to grab the lead, while Andrew Simmerman got by Ben Ketteman and Dunn for second. P J Egbert started his march to the front early taking spots from Allen Essenburg and Pat McGuire for fifth on lap 1. Simmerman caught Killingsworth on lap 2 and began his challenge. In he pack, McGuire, Kirkpatrick and Trevor Egbert worked their way past Dunn.

 

 

The yellow waved on lap 4 after Jason Batt and Cham Savage made heavy contact on the front stretch, putting Batt on the trailer and Savage to the hot pits for repairs. On the restart, P J Egbert blasted past Ketteman and Simmerman for second, with Kirkpatrick moving up to fourth. P J Egbert tried to duck inside Killingsworth on lap 5, while Kirkpatrick got by Simmerman for third. Killingsworth and P J Egbert were side by side on lap 6, as P J Egbert eased into the lead on lap 7.

 

 

Kirkpatrick, Simmerman and Ketteman followed as Killingsworth got out of the groove on the soft high side. P J Egbert then began to inch away, while Ketteman and Simmerman ran wheel to wheel for third. At the crossed flags it was P J Egbert, Kirkpatrick, Simmerman, Ketteman and Killingsworth running the top five. Kirkpatrick closed the gap on P J Egbert, and tried a move in turn 1 that didn't work causing him to loose ground and letting Ketteman close on him.

 

 

Defending track champ, McGuire spun with a low tire in turn 3 to bring out a caution and erase P J Egbert's big lead. On the restart, Killingsworth, T. Egbert and Jason Hoffman tangled in turn 4 to bring the yellow quickly back out. Once back to green, Kirkpatrick hung on to P J Egbert' rear bumper, while Arlen Essenburg got a huge jump moving up numerous spots. On the last lap Kirkpatrick tried on last “win it or wear it” move that came up short giving P J Egbert clear sailing to the checkers in the D&D Cabinetry, Phil's Motorsports, Pro Image Signs & Graphics, Greg May Honda, Connell Chevrolet, Lingo's Race Engines, Trevor's Escort Service, Hoffman Chassis.

 

“It's pretty much like the same routine every weekend” said Egbert. “ We probably need to rename the track after me. The car works real well here and I've probably got more laps around here than anyone, except maybe Ken Old. I just love going fast, and that's what I try to do every weekend.”

 

“We going to give it a shot at chasing the National and Regional points titles and see how it goes. However it ends up is how it ends up.”

 

“If the opportunity came about to move up or maybe go pavement racing I would do it. As far as our budget goes this is about it for us. We've never looked into anything else.”

Noticed a new name in the Midgets ranks; #18 Bud Carroll.

Bud was a long time ARTS truck racer.

 

That series has about 24 drivers registered this year, most are in Houston.
