In night one Mod-Lite action Dillon Raffurty, Tim Sterner, and Ed Griggs collected heat-race victories while 2018 Track Champion Dillon Raffurty continued his domination by overtaking Griggs late in the main event through lapped traffic to claim the feature win. Griggs was second at the finish with David Raffurty, Travis Alexander, and Michael Raffurty rounding out the top five.
B-Mods competed in three heat races to set the stage for their night-one feature as Brian Webster, Jake Richards, and Cody Brill collected wins. Drivers later returned for their 20-lap main event with Richards taking command early on from outside pole and eventually going on to capture the victory with Jacob Ebert moving from sixth at the start to finish second. Rounding out the top five were Jeremy Lile from eighth, Steve Clancy, and Kameron Grindstaff.
Saturday action included another full program for B-Mods and Mod-Lites with heat races and main events. Street Stocks returned for three b-mains, a non-qualifiers race, and the Second-Annual 50-lap, $5,000-to-Win Street Stock Showdown.
For B-Mods, drivers contested three heat races with Jacob Ebert advancing from the back of the pack to claim the opening race with Jake Richards claiming heat race two. Jeremy Lile advanced from third on the grid to claim the final heat race.
The main event featured some close action with Ebert and Lile starting from the front row. By the halfway point, 2018 Track Champion Seven Clancy found himself out front but just as it appeared he would end up in victory lane his night ended as he retired from the race. This left Richards and Ebert to battle for the win with Ebert close until lap 13 when Richards pulled away. Meanwhile, Kansas City’s Brent Fielder made a strong impression by making his way towards the front as he eventually moved in front of Ebert for second. In the end, Richards collected his second-consecutive victory of the weekend with Fielder claiming second. Ebert was third followed by Jeremy Lile and Kameron Grindstaff, who each claimed their second top-five finishes of the weekend.
Mod-Lites worked to figure out a way to beat Dillon Raffurty, who dominated the 2018 season. Michael Raffurty was the first to claim a preliminary win on the night. Other heat-race winners included Donnie Dannar from deep in the field and Ed Griggs.
For the 20-lap main event, Dannar and Dillon Raffurty led the field to the initial green flag. Raffurty quickly bolted out in front of the field to set a torrid pace in the lead. Dannar and third-starting Michael Raffurty rand close throughout the entire event working their way through lapped traffic to keep pace with the leader. After 17 straight laps of green-flag racing, a late-race caution closed the field for one final restart. With Dillon Raffurty in search of another victory in honor of his Grandfather, Dannar and Michael Raffurty gave it one last shot to catch the leader in the final three circuits; however, Dillon Raffurty pulled away from the two challengers to claim his second-consecutive victory of the weekend. Dannar finished second with Michael Raffurty third, Justin Raffurty fourth, and David Raffurty fifth as the family honored their late patriarch with a strong family showing inside the top five.
In Street Stock b-main action, six additional drivers from each of the three b-main advanced to the a-main starting grid with David Hendrix Dalton Imhoff, Larry Ferris, Ethan Lamons, Clayton Campbell, and Jay Lamons moving on from the first event. Johnny Coats took the win in b-main two with Kris Lloyd, Marc Carter, Jason Parks, Zach Zeugin and Ted Welschmeyer advancing. The final race went to James Flood over Brian Schutt, Jimmy Myers, Dean Wille, Joe Miller, and Brett Wood. In the non-qualifier’s race, Jimmy Ngo survived an outstanding battle with John Brooks to claim the victory over Brooks, Jerry Schmidt, Cody Vail and Devin Irvin.
The night came to a close with Derek Brown and Toby Ott leading the 24-car field to the initial green flag for the $5,000-to-win, 50-lap, Street Stock Showdown. After a quick restart, the outstanding field of drivers began their quest for the win in a phenomenal 30-lap green-flag racing period that featured clean and close side-by-side racing throughout the field.
Brown and Ott ran closely through the initial stages of the event as the pair worked to gain an edge. Behind them, racing was just as fierce with Daniel Deason, Jim Moody and Burl Woods inside the top five. Brown eventually emerged with the lead but Ott stayed within reach as he and Deason ran close until Deason’s night ended in heartbreak as he retired from the race by lap 12. By the lap 20 marker, Brown led Hendrix, who advanced from seventh row on the grid to contend for the victory. Burl Woods, Ott, and James Flood also occupied spots within the top five.
At the halfway mark, things began to heat up at the front once again with Brown in front of Woods and Hendrix in a close run for second. Behind the top three, Moody, Ott, Flood, Kris Lloyd and Marc Carter ran for a spot among the top five.
At lap 31, the race dynamics changed dramatically as leader Brown pulled to the infield on a caution to change a flat right-rear tire. With the leader returning to the field deep in the ranks with Hendrix assuming command of the event over Woods and hard-charging Brian Schutt of Lebanon, Missouri.
Another yellow flag flew on lap 32 for Jay Lamons as he encountered problems on the front stretch with a lost drive shaft and spring. The field eventually returned to green-flag action with Hendrix on the high side as Woods began his charge to the front down low. On lap 35, Schutt was second with James Flood throwing his name into the front-runner mix. Lloyd moved to fifth by this point in the race with Marc Carter also moving forward by lap 37.
Brown worked to move back through the ranks but misfortune struck for a second time as he retired late in the race as did Moody. A late race restart on lap 38 bunched the field once again for a final 12-lap shootout with Woods now in command as he turned his fastest lap of the race to show the way. Schutt, Hendrix, Flood, and Carter were among the top five.
Woods began the final stretch with Schutt and Hendrix close within the final ten laps of the event. On lap 44 Hendrix moved back to second with his outstanding battle with Schutt while Woods began to put distance between the himself and the perennial runner-up contenders. In the end, and outstanding weekend of Street Stock racing concluded as Woods claimed the big-money victory over Schutt with an amazing drive from twelfth to third by race end. Flood advanced from ninth to take fourth at the checkers with Carter advancing from 14th to fifth to complete the top five.
