by Brian Walker


Tulsa, OK (May 18, 2014) - It was the 12th event and sixth points race of the year as 140 entries piled into the pits of Port City Raceway last night. While recording the fifth highest count of the season, Port City would boast 20 heat races, six B-Mains, and six features on the warm May night.

For the first time all year long we saw the Outlaw division reel in the highest car count with 29 cars battling for the Outlaw victory. This week would only see five out of a possible six claim victory, while two drivers earned their first win of 2014 atop the high-banked 1/8th mile.

While only halfway through the month of May and with only 12 out of the slated 38 race nights completed, it has been quite the diverse year for Port City. A total of 28 drivers have already put their machine into victory lane, while multiple have been claimed victorious on multiple occasions through the slim 12 races.

This weekend will see the Memorial Day Special return to action as Port City and drivers alike hit the track to honor our veterans. All six divisions will be in action as racing will take place on both Friday and Saturday night of this two-day special event.

A full breakdown of last nights action can be found below along with results. A full statistical report of the 2014 season at Port City Raceway will also be released in the next week



A field of 17 youngsters made their way to Port City last night to fill up the Jr. Sprints division. Three heat races claimed by Kale Drake, J Brady Hilton, and Shawn Mahaffey would lineup the 20-lap feature event. The front row of Broken Arrow native Emilio Hoover and Sand Springs native Hayden Mabe would pace the field to green.

Drake would rocket from his fourth place starting position and lead lap one aboard his #77 machine. The lead would be short-lived however, as Muskogee native of Gunner Bowden would drive his Bowden Buildings #8 around the outside of Drake and storm into the race lead on lap two. Just as Bowden would start walking away from the field, a pack of yellows would halt the racing action and demolish the young racers lead.

After contact between Joey Gray and Kale Drake brought out the first and only red flag of the event, the race would go all green from there on out. Hank Davis would slide into second on the restart as Holley Hollan moved into third, but the two youngsters would have a tough time reeling in Bowden for the lead.

As the laps ticked off and race winded down, the #8 would find itself in the middle of a heated battle with lap traffic, but the lap cars nor the yellows flags could slow him down as Gunner Bowden held on to claim his first victory of 2014! Hank Davis completed his charge from 17th to finish second, Holley Hollan grabbed third, Noah Gass claimed fourth, and Shawn Mahaffey rounded out the top five.

A-Main (20 laps): 1. Gunner Bowden (7), 2. Hank Davis (17), 3. Holly Hollan (11), 4. Noah Gass (16), 5. Shawn Mahaffey (12), 6. Rees Moran (9), 7. Grayson Gaddy (5), 8. Emilio Hoover (1), 9.

The A-Class division would see 28 cars in action last night as four heat races and a B-Main would commence on the action packed 1/8th mile. Wes Little, Lenny McCall, Dean Drake Jr., and Bailey Hughes claimed heat race action as Joey Baker earned the B-Main win while Steven Curbow, Jason McDougal, and Scott Sawyer transferred along.

The #11m of Lenny McCall and Collinsville native Dean Drake Jr. would lead the 16-car field to the green. Drake would immediately shoot to the race lead and take command of the field. Multiple yellows early on allowed the drivers charging from the back to gain great track position, as Frank Flud and Karley Kay Dobson were charging into the top five just a short seven laps in.

As a three car battle for the lead would break out at halfway, Flud would come out on top in his Outlaw Wings #81 and storm into the lead on the 13th circuit as the cross flags waved. Shortly after Flud took command, Dobson would shoot her Harley Hollan Companies #28 machine into second and begin the hunt on the already seven-time winner in 2014.

One final yellow with five to go would setup a final shootout, but nobody could prove to be a challenge to the rocket fast #81 machine as Frank Flud walked away to earn his eighth feature win of the season! Karley Kay Dobson would settle for second, Dean Drake Jr. claimed third, Scott Sawyer charged from 16th to finish fourth, and Austin Helt closed out the top five.

Twenty-three Restricted drivers were set to do battle last evening as three heat races and a B-Main would be run. A division that has now seen eight out of a possible ten winners has turned into anyones game and almost all drivers are a threat to claim victory on any given night. Last night would see Cole Roberts, Stephen Smith, and Haley Hollan win heat races while Jase Randolph earned the B-Main win.

Tuttle native of Stephen Smith in his #3$ machine would pace the field to green alongside the #14 of Haley Hollan. Smith would jump out to the early lead, but Hollan would rocket her Harley Hollan Companies #14 around the outside and take the lead on lap six. While the spotlight was on the battle for the lead, Grady Widener in his #2 machine had quietly been working his way through the field.

After a yellow bunched the field up, Widener took advantage of the restart and dove under Hollan to lead lap 11, but the pass wasnt as simple as that. Hollan drove right back around Widener to lead the next lap as the two duked it out for the lead while running side by side. Widener finally took full control on the lead on lap 13 as he started to walk away from Hollan and the rest of the field.

Just after the halfway point as Widener was stretching his lead more and more, the yellow would fly as Hollan would be spun around and be forced to relegate her great run to the tail of the field. The race would go all green after that as Grady Widener would receive no further challenges and walk away to win his first race of the year! Noah Harris charged from 12th to finish second, Quinton Standlee grabbed third, Kaylee Bryson claimed fourth, and Kelsey Gray rounded out the top five.
