Central Missouri Speedway
June 18, 2020
For Immediate Release
(Warrensburg, Missouri) The sixth event of the 2020 season takes place this Saturday at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) under the lights as Pepsi Race night awaits drivers and fans. Throughout the program, drivers will compete in heat races and main events for A-Mods, Street Stocks, B-Mods, Mod-Lites, and Pure Stocks.
Repeat wins are the theme of the year so far in the new season as several drivers continued to rack up continuous and numerous wins last weekend. Gunner Martin won a thrilling A-Mod race after Matt Johnson nearly took the win off the final turn with Martin holding on for the victory. Martin, Tim Karrick, Terry Schultz, and Dean Wille, who is having one of his most consistent starts of a championship season are all capable of capturing A-Mod glory.
At CMS, if the A-Mod car count exceeds 24 or more by pill draw cutoff time, the class has a pay bonus on the line courtesy of a random draw. Already the area’s leading payout in this division with a $1,000 on the line in weekly action that decreases 900, 800, 700, 600, 500, 400 and on down the line to the $160 start money. This is not “special” pay, this is weekly payout! The bonus payout options include $1,200 to win and $180 to start and $1,500 to win and $200 to start, better than most super late model payouts!
Aaron Poe seems to be the new king of the ring in the Street Stocks as he continued his winning ways last week, upping his career CMS wins total to eight. Nathan Vaughn has been close on several occasions and multiple-time champion and the track’s all-time winningest driver with 95 victories, John Brooks, keeps improving his runs each week and appears to be poised for a victory sooner rather than later.
Patrick Royalty has been nothing but Royal in B-Mod action as he took his fourth win of the year last week at CMS. The areas winningest B-Mod driver has felt pressure in recent weeks as drivers continue to work hard to find their way to the front. Jacob Ebert, a multiple-time champion at CMS seems to be close with his familiar #94 staged for a win and although Jeremy Lile and Sturgis Streeter have experienced some bad luck recently, when they are on, it is apparent they are a threat for the win.
Total domination is the only phrase that comes to mind when referring to the Mod-Lite field as Dillon Raffurty claimed his fifth-consecutive victory of the season last week. In recent weeks, Dillon’s Father, David Raffurty, has shown increased speed along with Holden, Missouri’s Donnie Dannar, who feels like he is getting closer and closer to challenging Dillon Raffurty at the front of the pack.
The Pure Stock world has a new face atop the victory board after last week’s exciting feature win for Kansas City’s Spencer Reiff. Several drivers in this division are poised to challenge Reiff at the top, including last week’s runner-up finisher James Mirts, Jeff Hardy, Brian Cox, and Jerett Evans. Mallory Stiffler and David Doelz have also shown an increase in speed and consistency in recent weeks and Gale Harper and Scott Martin continue to search for speed as do Sandy Tanner and Jimmie Workman. Darrin Christy had mechanical gremlins last week but can never be counted out when his #3b takes to the speedway.
