Ten cars showed for the fifteen lap feature race. When the green flag dropped the field went three wide into turn one. Exiting turn two in the lead would be the current points leader, Allen Torres, in the lead. On lap six, Tom Williams and Sean Terry were fighting for second. The fight would be cut short, as Williams pulled his machine off the track the next lap. Devin Adler would take advantage of the situation and take over second for himself.


On lap eleven, “Krusty Rusty” Roy Fraser would spin out from fourth place with a flat left rear tire. Torres would see his sixth checkered flag of the year.

Street Stocks


Heat Race (top 3)


1.11 David Boggs

2.26 Darin Leonard

3.51 John Nealson


Five Street Stocks were all that were left after the heat races, but they ran twelve laps. The start of the race saw David Boggs and Darin Leonard, who is the 2004 Pure Stock Champion, go side by side into turn one for the lead. Leonard would just get his nose ahead of Boggs and lead the first lap. Boggs stayed door handle to door handle with Leonard for another lap, until finally getting by on the low side in turn two on the third lap. That opened the door for John Nealson to get by Leonard and take over the second place. Two laps later, Nealson would start challenging Boggs for the lead, with the two swapping the lead back and fourth the entire lap.


Lap five would see Bryan Lorenz bring out a caution flag. The restart order was Boggs, Nealson, Leonard, Johnny Torres, and Lorenz. On the resumption of racing, Nealson would continue to hound Boggs for the lead. Persistance paid off, and Nealson would get by Boggs on lap seven as the two would go side by side for the lead again.


Lap eight wasn't kind to Leonard, as his engine went up in a huge ball of fire in turn three. He was able to steer the car through the smoke and flames and into the infield, where the safety crew helped put out what was left of his engine. Nealson would cruise to the victory.


Unfortunately, during post race tech, Nealson's car would be disqualified. It was determined that the engine used pop-up pistons. That would be ok, if the car was a completely legal I.M.C.A. Stock Car. But the engine was breathing trough a four barrel, instead of the two barrel 350 cfm I.M.C.A. requires. I-37 Speedway rules state that I-Stocks are legal as long as they are legal I-Stocks. You can not mix and match rules. So Boggs was declared the winner.


David Boggs drives a Chevy Monty Carlo with a 350 for power. The 42 year old, 1991 Mini Mod Champion at Abilene Speedway, races out of Pleasanton. He is sponsored by PCI Transportation, Mission Auto Parts and Denis Hillia Auto Service. The car is crewed by Kiki, Jason, Brian, Denis and John, while his wife Shelly and three daughters, Breley, chaslin, and Katlin cheer from the stands. This was his second feature win of the year.

Texas Outlaw Modifieds


Heat Races (top 3)


Heat One


1.3 Trey Votion

2.8 Uncle Bob Henderson

3.2 Rudy Garza


Heat Two


1.84 Patrick Kelly

2. 1 Herb Shaw

3.15 Brian Shaw


Seven of the loud, winged Texas Outlaw Modifieds were on hand for their twelve lap feature race. On the start, Patrick Kelly would leap into the lead, with Trey Votion, Chris Snocker, and Uncle Bob Henderson, in tow. Lap two would see Snocker get into second, just before he spun out in turn two. No caution came out and we continued to race.


Lap three would be an exciting one, as Herb Shaw would get around Kelly for the lead. It was short lived however, as yellow would wave because the Votion and Henderson cars spun in turn two the same lap. That put Kelly back into the lead, as he lead the last completed green fag lap. The line up for the restart was, Kelly, H. Shaw, Brian Shaw, Votion and Snocker.


On the restart Votion's car broke, and another yellow came out, due to the cars not being lined up properly to restart. The second restart would be smoother, and H. Shaw would race his son, B. Shaw side by side for the second place. Youth and enthusiasm trumped old age and trickery, and B. Shaw was now in second. Two laps later, B. Shaw would be beside Kelly for the lead in turn three. The two would trade some paint and B. Shaw would complete his march up from the back of the pack.


The crossed flags would see B. Shaw in the lead, and Snocker, moving into the third spot, as H. Shaw had problems in turn two. No one could catch B. Shaw as he powered his way to his third victory of the year.


Brian Shaw drives a White Lighting chassis. It is sponsored by S&L Liftmasters and Long's Racing Engines. The twenty-five year old from Elmendorf is married to the lovely Courteny.

Heat 3


1.89 Steve Whiteaker Jr

2.125 Jason Borlace

3.55 Danny Brown


Eighteen cars made it out for their twenty lap feature race. The first try to get it started went badly, and would have to be tried again. Unfortunately, the second wasn't much better, as Shawn O'banon and Jeremy Davenport crashed in turn four. Third time was the charm and the race finally got under way.


It was Jason Borlace who lead the first four laps, but Nickey Hardcastle was right beside him the whole time. Danny Brown and Dale Flanagan were third and fourth. On lap four Brown and Flanagan would go side by side for third. A lap later, Hardcastle would finally get by Borlace and lead the race. Both Brown and Flanagan would get by Borlace, pushing him back to fourth.


Yellow would be the color on lap six. O'banon spun and stalled his car in turn two. The top five on the restart was Hardcastle, Brown, Flanagan, Borlace and Brandon Blaylock. on the restart, Hardcastle, Brown and Flanagan would race three wide into turn one, with Flanagan splitting the two leaders and emerging from turn two with the lead. Unfortunately, that awesome move by Flanagan would be negated, as yellow flew for a schnozzle on the front straight. Steve Whiteaker Sr got the worse of it, and would retire. Brown would also have problems with his car and took it to the pits. He would come back out, but had to tack onto the back of the pack.


Top five coming to green was Hardcastle, Flanagan, Borlace, Blaylock and Steve Majek. Hardcastle had to deal with Flanagan as the two raced into turn one side by side. Flanagan would make the high groove work and take the lead on lap seven. A lap later, Majek would get by Blaylock for third. As the field was shown the crossed flags, the top five were Flanagan, Hardcastle, Majek, Blaylock and Borlace. Lap twelve would see O'banon spin in turn two again, bringing out the final caution of the race. The top five remained the same.


The top five would be nose to tail as they got the two to go sign. On the white flag lap Blaylock would get by Majek for thrid. Hardcastle threw everything but the kitchen sink at Flanagan but could not get the lead.


Dale Flanagan is Forty-one from Corpus Christi. He drives a homemade chassis. It is sponsored by Flanagan's Muffler Shop and L&L Carburetor.
