Central Missouri Speedway
Event #23 – May 4, 2019
(Warrensburg, MO) After a long week’s work on the surface for the track crew and a week to ready the cars, racing resumed on Saturday evening for Warrensburg, Holden, and Knob Noster Chamber of Commerce night at Central Missouri Speedway!
A total of 105 race teams were on hand for competition, among them being 25 A-Mods, 16 Street Stocks, 26 B-Mods, 28 Mod-Lites, and 10 Pure Stocks. Through the night, 15 preliminary heat races were completed along with one b-main and five main events for the fans on hand.
Pure Stock Recap: To start the night, Pure Stock drivers contested a pair of heat races with Steve Evans taking charge of the first over J.R. Billings. For the second heat it was all Kyle Rowland over Logan Headley. Steve Evans and Kyle Rowland began the night’s 12-lap Pure Stock feature from row one. Evans led the opening circuit with Rowland and Billings in tow. by the halfway distance, Evans pulled out to a six-car length lead over Billings. After a late-race yellow flag, Evans held strong at the front and went on to collect his first main event of the year just as his car’s left front experienced mechanical issues crossing the line just in front of Rowland in second. Billings was third, Logan Headley fourth, and David Doelz fifth.
Mod-Lites Recap: A large field of Mod-Lite drivers ran in four heat races to set the stage for the night’s a- and b-main events later in the evening. David Raffurty blasted to the front at the start of heat one and went the distance for the victory as Ed Griggs rocketed from inside of row three to claim heat two. Heat three went to Jeff Raffurty from his row two start position. In the final Mod-Lite heat, Travis Alexander took the win. Cody Vail took the Mod-Lite b-main win. The 20-lap main event began with a trio of false starts before drivers settled in to their race rhythm. Griggs held point in the early stages with Dillon and David Raffurty second and third. Caution slowed the field at lap eight and again on lap ten but the cautions were not enough to slow down Dillon Raffurty who collected the win in the lap-shortened distance of 15 over Griggs, David Raffurty, Justin Raffurty, and Michael Raffurty.
B-Mod Recap: It took four heat races for B-Mod drivers to establish their main event lineup with Jake Richards taking the first heat victory. Rod Cordon dominated for the win in heat two with Mark Schafman making a triumphant return with the third heat victory. J. C. Morton made a rare visit to CMS pay off with the win in the fourth and final heat. J.C. Morton and Kameron Grindstaff led the field to green in the 20-lap main event. Morton checked out at the start leaving Grindstaff and Jeremy Lile to battle for second. A four-car caution slowed the field on lap 14 followed by two more cautions. On the restart on lap 15, Morton felt pressure from Gunner Martin in second but at the white flag marker, Morton again opened his advantage in the lead and went on to collect the victory over Martin, Jeremy Lile, Kameron Grindstaff, and Jake Richards.
Street Stock Recap: A pair of heat races started off the night’s Street Stock competition as Clayton Campbell making a furious charge to the front as he bested Devin Irvin. Marc Carter led Aaron Poe to the checkers in the second and final Street Stock heat to setup the a-main lineup. A pair of former champions led the way in the Street Stocks with Clayton Campbell and Marc Carter on row one. Campbell was strong at the start as he raced closely with Marc Carter. After a lap three caution, Aaron Poe moved forward to battle with Carter for second. Just passed halfway, Campbell continued to lead Carter, Poe, and Nathan Vaughn inside the top four. Carter and Poe put heavy pressure on Campbell by lap 11 as Carter crossed in the lead. A late-race caution slowed the field again on lap 11 with Carter and Poe fighting for the win. However, at the end of the race it was the 45 car of Aaron Poe who came away with the victory in a close battle to the finish over Marc Carter, Clayton Campbell, Nathan Vaughn, and Jason Park.
A-Mod Recap: Modifieds were 25 cars strong for the night and competed in three heat races with Matt Johnson claiming heat one ahead of Tim Karrick. Mickey Burrell took the win in heat two over Chad Lyle while Dean Wille held on for the win over Darron Fuqua in the third and final heat. The 25-lap a-main started with Chad Lyle and Darron Fuqua on row one. Fuqua’s night ended quickly as he was unable to complete a lap. Several early race cautions slowed the beginning of the race as Lyle and Mickey Burrell ran near the front. By lap five, Karrick took command over Lyle with Johnson third and Burrell fourth. Caution flew again on lap nine as the drivers worked hard to figure out the fastest line. By lap 10 caution flew once again as Karrick retained his lead on the front stretch. Drivers settled into their race rhythm for the next several laps as Karrick held point with Lyle second. In heavy traffic, Karrick did not look back and collected the $1,200 victory as there were more than 24 drivers competing with the bonus in effect. It was Karrick’s first CMS win since August of 2015. Lyle was second at the finish with 15th starting Terry Schultz in third. Rounding out the top five were Dalton Kirk and Matt Johnson.

US Hwy 13 north of Warrensburg is now under construction. According to the Johnson County EDC,” The City of Warrensburg is beginning construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Business Route MO-13 and Hawthorne Blvd. This is just north of Walmart, Applebee’s and Aldi’s. There will be some temporary detours from time to time.” CMS suggests using the Hwy 13 north bypass east of Warrensburg from US Hwy 50 as an alternate route if coming to CMS from the south.
