Can Austin Carter Go Three for Three at Salina Speedway?

by Larry Lowrey Jr.

SALINA, Kan. -- For the first 2 weeks of the season everything has been going great at Salina Speedway. Good crowds, a lot of competitors and great racing have highlighted the beginning of the season. The big question on everyone's mind is can Austin Carter keep up his winning ways this Saturday night, May 9, in the M&H Motors IMCA Northern Sport Mod division?

Carter has been on a roll since taking the win on opening night. A feat that is impressive considering all the talent and competition that he has to face on a nightly basis. This week's race could determine whether this youngster is quickly becoming the next big thing or if one of the other hot-shoes in the class is ready to knock him off. The Northern Sport Mod division isn't the only big race to watch this Friday night.

Last Friday night's races displayed a little bit of everyting in the world of racing. Late lap victories, lots of wheel to wheel action and even domination.

The Belleville Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds saw the domination characteristic in the feature event. Brian Knoell, a longtime veteran modified racer, took the lead from the pole position and never looked back. It also marked the 2nd straight week where there was a new winner in victory lane.

Delbert Smith, the winner from night 1 in the BSB Manufacturing Late Models, looked as if he would take home a win on night 2, but it was Darrick Klima who would come up with the victory at the checkers. In the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stock Feature Mike Traskowsky became the 2nd different feature winner in the division by outdueling Aaron McBride, Goeff Jermark was the king of the Coors Light Street Stock class and Stacey Huffman charged to the front of the field for the win in the Chamucos Night Club Mini Stock feature event.

This week's lineup will feature the BSB Manufacturing Late Models, Belleville Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, M&H Motors IMCA Northern Sport Mods, Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks and the AutoHouse Towing Mod Lites.

Racing action gets started Friday night with hot laps at 7:15 p.m. and the racing action goes green shortly after the completion of hot laps.
