Adams Leads Eagle Valley Winners List
JIM FALLS, Wis. – Kevin Adams led the list of feature winners Sunday evening at Eagle Valley Speedway.
Although the Modified feature only had seven cars, the quality was second to none with several multi Modified feature winners and Grant Southworth, a Midwest Modified hot shoe jumping into Bryan Nayes’ Quality Propane car. Entering the week, Kevin Adams was leading and Mike Anderson was fifth in National Points and both had posted clean sweeps already on the weekend at the Red Cedar and Rice Lake Speedways.
Jesse Glenz, flanked by Neil Balduc led the field to green with Balduc taking the point early. The racing action behind the leader was intense as cars jockeyed for position. The lone caution flag flew when Southworth spun, nearly collecting Anderson. The race changed on the restart as second place Jake Hartung chose the outside of Adams.
As the cars took the green flag and entered into turn one, Adams drove in extremely deep and was able to complete a successful slide up in front of the leader in turn two. From there, he checked out on the rest of the field winning his 15 th feature of the 2014 season. Behind him, a terrific four car battle ensued finishing with Hartung in second followed by Balduc, Anderson, and Glenz.
The Super Stock feature had much less suspense as Jeff Brauer and Chad Jonson set the pace. Brauer lead lap one, but fifth starting Curt Myers charged to the lead on lap two. The only caution of the race flew for a spinning Curt Hazelton and the restart had Myers in the lead as Brauer chose to start outside of Tommy Richards. Myers made quick work at stretching his lead and drove home for his 18 th feature win on the season as he makes a strong bid for a National Championship, entering the week third in points. Brauer finished second, followed home by Richards, Wayne Harris and Johnson.
