(Warrensburg, MO) The Memorial Day weekend make-up features for Pure Stocks and Street Stocks drivers took place at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) in front of an enthusiastic crowd of dedicated race fans. On a rare perfect weather night for this season, Jason Ryun from Kansas City drove into victory lane for the $500 to-win Pure Stock special event. Brett Wood of Warrensburg claimed the make-up Street Stock feature and the weekly feature for his fourth and fifth victory lane celebrations of the year.
Street Stocks began the night with their makeup feature event from the postponed Memorial Day weekend. Jay Prevete, Brett Wood, and Dean Wille were the heat race winners on May 23. All of the drivers that qualified that night were eligible to run this feature event and most of them made the call for the make-up race. At the start of the feature, Troy Turley looked like the driver to beat as he drove hard out of turn two with the early lead. However a four-man battle ensued for lead with Dean WIlle, Brett Wood, and Clayton Campbell took place with furious on-track action.
Prevete ran in the top-five early on and then Wille grabbed the lead only to depart later with mechanical problems on lap 6. Campbell then took over the lead only to see his lead be short lived as Wood passed him and never looked back. Wood gained his fourth feature win of the year with Turley settling for second followed by Prevete and Tim Cressley.
Pure Stocks started off the evening heat races to determine the feature starting spot for their special $500-to-win feature event. Jason Ryun grabbed the first heat with Jeremiah Wilson and Jason Cochran close behind. In heat two, Dylan McDonald passed under the checkers first ahead of Don Johnson and Leroy Morrison.
For the main event, Pure Stocks lined up for the 12- lap special feature with Ryun quickly asserting himself as the man to beat as McDonald and Johnson worked hard inside the top-three. Darrin Christy then later started his move up to the top three after a lap-4 mishap for Leroy Morrison on the back stretch. Morrison eventually was able to control his car and finish the race with the left front flat.
McDonald applied pressure throughout the race looking for a way around Ryun but Ryun hung on with his third feature win this year. He thanked the Christie’s for preparing the car for his racing this season. McDonald, who was making his first CMS appearance this season, had a solid second place finish. Christy moved up late into third with Jeremiah Wilson and Roger Detherage completing the top-five.
A field of 21 B-Mods checked in and competed in three heat races to set the field for their weekly feature. Cody Frazon claimed heat one over Troy Carlyle and Jason Billups. Heat two had Dean Wille claiming the win over Chris Cain and Cody Brill. The final heat race saw Jacob Ebert advance to take the checkers in front of Richard Brainard and Dean Truelove.
B-Mods lined up for their 15-lap event to see if they could keep pace with early season point’s leader Jacob Ebert. Out of the gate Ebert grabbed the early lead as he rolled out of turn two ahead of Frazon and Carlyle. Ebert and the other drivers endured multiple cautions throughout the race, but Ebert felt some pressure behind him from Carlyle who stuck his nose in down low several times in turn four but still unable to topple Ebert, who hung on for his fifth feature win of the year.
Carlyle saw his bid for another win go out of sight as he spun late in the race fighting for the lead. Cain, who passed Wille in third late in the race after a restart, finished third with Brainard recording his best finish of the year in fourth while Don Marrs rounded out the top-five.
Street Stock drivers had their second chance to win a feature during their weekly racing events with 19 drivers on hand competing in three heat races. Clayton Campbell grabbed the opening heat race over Russ Moyer and Ronnie Livingood. First year driver Casey Meads drove to victory in heat two for his first-ever win ahead of Troy Turley and Zack Smith while Brett Wood bested Brian Inlow and Allen Perryman in the final heat race.
At CMS, the Street Stock competition has always been a fan favorite event and the drivers didn’t disappoint them again this night. Early leader Campbell was pursued by Wood, Turley and Moyer early on in the race as Wood used lapped traffic to his advantage to take the lead from Campbell.
Wood used the high line to get by and then was on cruise control the rest of the way with Campbell in second as Wood celebrated his second feature win of the night and his fifth of the year. Campbell ran very strong in second, Turley was third, Meads had his best finish of the year in fourth, while Moyer completed the top-five.
USRA Modifieds had their final weekend to prepare for the Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl over the Fourth of July weekend. Tim Karrick claimed heat one with Robbie Reed and Danny Scrogham in close pursuit. Terry Schultz won in convincing fashion in heat two ahead of Luke Feeback and Earl Roark. The third heat of the night went to Matt Dotson ahead of Aaron Marrant and Kevin Blackburn. The final heat of the night had Robbie Test finishing ahead of Brian Johnson and Nick Pence.
The USRA Modifieds then completed the night’s racing events with their 25-lap main event. Karrick looked to be the early favorite in the one-caution event. Feeback looked strong in his first appearance in a few years. Robbie Test also stayed up in the top-five all night with a solid run. Brain Johsnon also had a solid performance.
Lapped traffic plagued Karrick as he tried to maintain the lead as Dotson went around him for the lead using the high line. Meanwhile, Schultz tried to move up some on the track but didn’t find it to his liking and slide back down low, eventually settling for third.
As the final double checkers of the night flew for the modified feature Matt Dotson claimed the victory for his first CMS win of the year. In victory lane, Dotson felt elated to come away with the win against a tough field of cars. Karrick hung on for second, Schultz was third, Test had his best CMS finish in fourth, while Aaron Marrant advanced to round out the top five.
Next weekend marks the Tenth Annual Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl with two nights of heart pounding USRA Modified events as well as a full night of action for both programs. Night one on Friday, July 3 features a $1,500-to-win Street Stock special and extra start money on the line for USRA B-Mods, who will be competing for track and national USRA points.
ULMA Late Models return for the second stop of their annual Triple Crown Shootout. An anonymous donor has added $50 for the winner, making the late model victory worth $650. The Allstar Midget Series is set to return for the first time this year after being rained out over the Memorial Day weekend.
USRA Modifieds have the featured race of the weekend when they compete in the 50-lap, $5,000-to-win and $1,000-to-start main event on Saturday evening. USRA Modifieds have two chances to make it on to the 24-car starting grid for the main event as drivers will complete in two rounds of heat races, and C and B features as needed to ultimately determine the inside row starts, 12 cars, on night one, and then coming back on night two to determine the outside row starting positions, eventually filling the field for the main event of the night. Saturday night will also feature a complete fireworks show for everyone to enjoy. On Friday night, join us for an after-race tech barn party with Char karaoke, which starts after the final checkered flag of the evening. Those attending the party are encouraged to bring their own chairs and beverages.
Effective immediately the Lightning Sprints will no longer be weekly racing class at Central Missouri Speedway. A spokesperson for the Lightning Sprints approached promoter Earl Walls Saturday evening and apologized for the car counts not being up to par with what was anticipated this season. Walls understood and the parties agreed that in the best interest of the division that they would no longer be a weekly racing division at CMS.
Track points and USRA points will be awarded to both the USRA Modified and B-Mod divisions as well as Street Stocks on both nights. With the absence of the Lightning Sprints, Street Stocks have been added to the Saturday program, when they will also compete for track points. The Friday special for Street Stocks is not a track point’s night for the class. Pure Stocks will compete for track points on Saturday evening.
