Thornton Sizzles at CSP

 

by Lonnie Wheatley

 

PEORIA, Ariz. (June 6, 2015) – The “Summer Sizzle” lived up to its moniker Saturday night at Canyon Speedway Park with Ricky Thornton, Jr., coming away with a hard-fought win in IMCA Modified action.

While Thornton, Jr., came away with his second consecutive 9th World Vapor IMCA Modified score at CSP, Matt Martinez topped a hotly-contested Arizona Differential Pure Stock feature, Chris McCurdy, Jr., was best in the Scottsdale Automotive & Muffler ranks, Ryan Walter bested the Micro Sprints, Tim Cotherman covered the Dwarf Cars and Kent Ewart, Jr., led the way in Mini Stocks.

 

In IMCA Modified action, Thornton, Jr., rallied from the 11th starting position as pole starter Joey Moriarty led the way. Moriarty fought off Thornton, Jr., for more than half the race before surrendering the point.

 

Thornton, Jr., went on to the checkered flag ahead of Moriarty with Garrett Funk, George Fronsman and John Parmeley rounding out the top five.

 

Matt Martinez, Chris McCurdy, Jr., and Bo Partain dueled for the lead much of the way in Pure Stock action before Martinez finally emerged with his sixth CSP score of 2015 ahead of McCurdy, Jr., and Partain with Madrids of Zack and Speedy also among a tightly-bunched top five.

 

Chris McCurdy, Sr., topped the Renegades from fourth, crossing the stripe ahead of Richard Bennett, Daniel Romero, Mark Kilian and Troy Barnes.

 

Ryan Walter beat Kyle Huttenhow and 11th-starter Mason Keefer to the line for his first CSP Micro Sprint win of the year, Tim Cotherman rallied from ninth to take Dwarf Car honors ahead of Steve Kapaun 15th-starter Chris Cramer and Kent Ewart, Jr., picked off his second Mini Stock win in as many tries.

 

Action resumes at Canyon Speedway Park with the Fifth Annual Father’s Day Classic on Saturday, June 20, featuring the USAC Southwest Sprint Cars along with 9th World Vapor IMCA Modifieds, Arizona Differential Pure Stocks, Scottsdale Muffler & Automotive Renegades and Micro Sprints.
