Street Stock Heat 1:
At the start Ewing and Maisel take off, two laps in there is a caution when the a car spins in 4. At the restart it is 95 41 24 0 97 49 28 227. The 95 and 41 take off a again and the 95 and 41 have a sizable lead over the 24. Then the scary event of the night happens when the leaders take the white flag on the front stretch while the 22 car spins on the back stretch. One car had no where to go and crashed hard in the 22Ecar. Ricky Hoffman was assisted from the 22 car and able to walk to the ambulance with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The ambulance did leave the track, I'm praying for a speedy recovery for Ricky and I hope the injury is not serious. A total of three cars left the track after this incident. The race restarts with one lap to go and Steve Ewing went onto win followed by the 41 of Steve Maisel, 24 Hall, 0 Tackett, 49 Buyno, and 25 Osman.
SS heat 2
Race Starts and 9 Miller and 8 Hurst take off for the lead. 8 Hurst leads the first lap and every lap there after to cross the finish line first in this caution free race. He was followed by Terry Miller, Jim Quinn, Greg Rubenacker, Greg Brewer, Troy Dodson, Hugh Johson, Scott Thraser and Doug Burbaum.
Street Stock Feature.
The Quinn's Towing $300 to win Street Stock Feature really was the best race of the night it was awesome to watch.There were cars racing up high, down low, and in the middle and the race ran caution free! Steve Ewing took off in the lead and he and Steve Maisel battled for the lead while Jim Quinn and Terry Miller had their own battle going for 3rd. It got really exciting when they got into lap traffic. Maisel eventually passed Ewing and then was nearly taken out by a lapped car on the last lap! However, he raced onto victory and took home the Quinn's Towing $300! Steve Ewing finished 2nd, followed by Jim Quinn 3rd, Terry Miller 4th. David Hurst 5th, Chris Tackett 6th, Lee Hall, Johna Buyno, Greg Rubanacker, Hugh Johnson, and Greg Brewer 10th. Let me repeat, this was a great race to watch.
