Ryan Bard Memorial, Southern Challenge @ Abilene Speedway 10/17-19

By JM Hallas


Abilene, Tx.,(Oct. 18th, 2014) After a full Friday night of action, 25 drivers had their tickets punched to Sundays Ryan Bard Memorial Southern Challenges Big A-main. 25 others had spots secured in Sundays Big B-main, the rest were back in action for Saturday night on the 1/4 mile, high-banked, red clay oval. A few drivers opted to drop their finish to take a chance of improving their starting spots.


The procedures for the five classes were similar to Friday night, only this group of qualifier would start on the outside row. The Texas State Young Guns Jr. Mini Stock Championship would run a qualifying race.


Friday nights winners included, Ricky Alvarado, IMCA Modified, Robby Crabtree, IMCA Southern Sportmod, Jason Batt, IMCA Stock Car, Andy Roller, IMCA Hobby Stock and Joe Colyer, ASW Street Stock and Factory Stock.


Sustaire Shows the Way....Again

After having tech issues Friday night with valve spring retainers taking away his win, Kevin Sustaire(Emory) stepped up and found his way back to the Winners Circle. Sustaire out ran David Davis for the lead as the 20-lap, 20-car IMCA Modified feature fired off. Jimmy Tidwell, John Gober and Dean Demming trailed the lead duo.


In a race that ran green to checkers after an initial restart, Sustaire led the way until slower traffic allowed Davis to reel him in. Davis gave it the "ol' college try" at the end but it was Sustaire in his Sustaire Plumbing, Darby Diesel Repair, Smileys, FIT, Bryan Mize Chassis Tuning, Machine Works, Wehrs Machine, AFCO Shocks, Fisher Race Engines, CAM Chassis taking the honors.

Hayes Hauls to Sportmod Sweep

Steve Hayes(Eastland) went wire to wire in the 20-lap, 21-car IMCA Southern Sportmod feature. In a race I'd describe as brutal at best with one third of the field out before a lap was completed, it took a single file start to finally get underway. Hayes, from the pole, quickly jumped out front with Brian Heard, Raymond King, Danny Patterson and Shane Priddy in pursuit.


Doug Easterling, who gave up a guaranteed spot on Sunday tried to better his position, but got caught up in several mishaps ending his night without transferring. Up front Hayes would easily pull away into his own zip code going unchallenged in his Braka Operating, KSG Motorsports, Buckeye Supply, Stephenville Starter, Triple T Trucking, KSE Powered, Express Chassis.

Edwards Ekes out I-Stock Win

Eastland's Robby Edwards snagged the IMCA Stock Car win with a late pass on Joe O'Bryan. It took four tries to get the 20-lap feature under way with O'Bryan jumping out front trailed by Damon Hammond, Kirk Martin, Edwards and Bud Ohliger. Edwards worked his way up to O'Bryan at halfway bringing Cody Kays along.


The veteran Edwards patiently stalked O'Bryan throughout the final half of the race waiting for a mistake. Coming to the white flag O'Bryan slipped in turn 4 giving Edwards the opening, which he jumped on. As O'Bryan spun to the infield, Edwards in his KSG Motorsports, E&E Collision, Triple T Trucking, KSE powered, Medieval Chassis, cruised on to the checkers.

Hutchison Hustles to Hobby Honors

With a short field of cars remaining the IMCA Hobby Stocks ran an A-qualifier to set the outside rows of the Big A-main and Big B-main. After a couple tries Gerald Spalding got the lead trailed by Barrett Hutchison, Kendall Rea, Damian Snyder and Wayne Chadwell. Spalding and Hutchison checked out on the field to settle things among themselves.


Shortly after a restart Hutchison got inside Spalding running door to door at the line. Hutchison(Stephenville) got the lead on the back stretch near halfway with Spalding trying to retake the spot.

Whitehead Wins with Traffic Pass

The 20-car Street Stock/Factory Stock feature saw William McNeely edge out Robert Kindle coming back to the line for the lead. W. McNeely gave way to Chase Neill on lap 4 with Michael Whitehead on his tail. The lead duo ran up on lapped traffic just past halfway changing the potential finish.


Neill got hung up and tried high to get by slower cars with Whitehead slipping past to get the point on lap 14. As the two continued in traffic Neill was able to get back by, but a poorly timed yellow put Whitehead back in the lead, with clear track. Once back to green, Whitehead)Levelland) was able to hold his advantage over Niell for the win.
