Fuqua, Wood, Royalty, Raffurty, and Harper Take Central Missouri Speedway Wins!

Unsanctioned: Modifieds, Street Stocks, B-Mods, Mod-Lites, and Pure Stocks
Central Missouri Speedway
Event #2 – April 27, 2019

(Warrensburg, MO) On a clear and cool early spring night at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS), 93 race teams checked in to Pepsi Night at the races! The field included 8 Pure Stocks, 27 Mod-Lites, 27 B-Mods, 15 Street Stocks, and 16 A-Mods.

Pure Stock Recap: Pure Stock drivers started the night with a pair of heat races as Joey Harper led Darrin Christy to the finish of heat one, heat two went to Logan Headley ahead of Jonathan Evans. Joey Harper and Logan Headley began the 12-lap main event from row one. Four caution periods slowed the main event in an otherwise super-competitive event right to the finish. In the closing laps, Harper, Christy, and Headley raced very hard to capture the glory but, in the end, Joey Harper prevailed despite extreme pressure. On the final circuit it was Harper who came off turn two with the lead as the pair were three-wide shortly before that entering turn one. That was all Harper needed as he was able to secure the win, his second career win at CMS. Headley finished second with Christy settling for third. Don Johnson was fourth and Jonathan Evans fifth.

Mod-Lites Recap: There was another large field of Mod-Lites on hand for four preliminary heats with David Raffurty running strong to collect heat one. Ed Griggs led the charge in heat two with last week’s a-main winner Dillon Raffurty claiming heat three. Mike Kennedy claimed the final six-lap heat race. David Raffurty and Ed Griggs began the 20-lap main event at the front of the field. Unfortunately, the race was caution plagued from the onset and the race had to be shortened due to the allotted 20 minutes for a main event expiring. Dillon Raffurty prevailed with his second-consecutive win and 24th overall at the speedway since Mod-Lites became a weekly race class. Ed Griggs was strong in second followed by David Raffurty, Michael Raffurty, and Cody Miller to round out the top five.

B-Mod Recap: The field of 27 B-Mods started their night of competition with four eight-lap heat races. Tim Galvan was strong to lead the way in the opening heat. For heat two, it was Jacob Ebert who led the way. Heat three was claimed by Kameron Grindstaff with the final prelim going to a dominant Jim Moody. Dakota Foster and Jake Richards led the charge for the 20-lap feature event. The B-Mods were also plagued with cautions early in their event, but once the drivers settled in, racing was good. The race was stopped by a scary incident involving Tyler Wood on lap six in which his car flipped coming off turn two in the back-straightaway area. Wood was able to emerge from the car okay to the delight of the fans. When racing resumed, Patrick Royalty was in command by the halfway marker with a solid run at the front with Jim Moody and Dakota Foster racing hard inside the top three. Royalty was too strong for the rest of the field and went on to collect the victory with Moody coming away second, Foster third, Jacob Ebert fourth, and Cody Brill fifth.

Street Stock Recap: A pair of heat races sorted out the passing points earned and lineup for the 5-lap main event as Eric Hammons led the way over Jason Parks. Clayton Campbell collected the heat two win by outpacing Brett Wood. Eric Hammons and Clayton Campbell opened the 15-lap a-main from row one. Street Stock drivers had a super-competitive a-main with Hammons, Campbell, and Wood racing hard in the early stages. By lap five, Campbell led Wooed, Larry Ferris and Nathan Vaughn. In the races closing stages it appeared Campbell might claim his second win in a row, but Brett Wood put the pressure on and brought Vaughn with him to overtake Campbell for the victory, his 33rd CMS win, good for eighth on the all-times win list. Vaughn had a brilliant drive to second with Campbell third, Ferris fourth, and Chris Kircher fifth.

A-Mod Recap: Tim Karrick of Basehor, Kansas opened the Modified competition with a victory over Dalton Kirk and Mickey Burrell while Chad Lyle was unstoppable in heat two over Matt Johnson and Darron Fuqua. A pair of CMS veterans started the 25-lap main event on the front row. In the fiercest battle of the night, the A-Mods did not disappoint on a track with some unusual character, which displayed three distinct race surfaces at various points on the track as windy weather and sun proved interesting for late-evening track conditions as the cool weather also affected the surface. Tim Karrick appeared to be on his way to a victory and led comfortably for the first 18 laps of the race as Chad Lyle, Fuqua, and Gunner Martin near the front. Mechanical gremlins ended Dean Wille’s night on lap 19, as the lone caution of the night slowed the field for the restart. Fuqua then took to the high side on the ensuing restart and blasted to the front for the lead, never looking back and ultimately stretching out his lead over the final five laps to claim his sixth CMS victory. Karrick was a cool second with Martin third, Matt Johnson ran strong up to fourth with Lyle rounding out the top five.

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.
