Carnes & Northem Headline Holland Events
Vernon and Tommy Catalano went side by side for several laps and Catalano used the bottom groove to take over fourth with six laps remaining. Kirk Totten’s great race would come to an end with two laps remaining as he spun trying to reel in Skora.

JD Roberts and Josh Hathaway were on the front row for the McClurg Auto Group Late Model feature event and it was Roberts showing the way. Brandon Glover started third on the grid and quickly took second away from Hathaway. Glover and Roberts went side by side for most of the race. Both young drivers swapped the race lead several times throughout the 20 lap feature distance.
Roberts and Glover continued their dual and Roberts got loose going down the back straightaway on the last lap and then again got loose on the front stretch and made contact with the wall as Glover picked up his first feature win of the season. Roberts crossed the line in second and was followed by veteran driver Mike Ticco with Eldon King III finishing fourth and Josh Hathaway completing the top five.
Nelson Rung and third generation driver Camden Barber led the field of TQ Midgets to the green flag for their 20 lap feature event with Barber getting the race lead. Dave Wollaber was on the move quickly as the Opening Day feature winner started 12th on the grid and was up to second in only six laps.
Wollaber quickly challenged Barber for the race lead and completed the pass with just five laps remaining. Barber spun in turn four as he tried to retake the lead away from Wollaber. On the restart, Wollaber pulled away from Kyle Hutchinson and the Nye Brothers Shawn and Andy. The caution would come back out as Gordie Steffan and Kylie McElver spun in turn three. Wollaber would pull away on the restart to grab the win.
Donald “Butcher” Palmer and Josh Hill led the field of 4 Cylinder Hornets to the green flag for their 30 lap feature event with Palmer getting the early race advantage. Veteran racer Brian Richael moved up from his fourth starting position to lead the initial lap. Defending divisional champion Jeff Szafraniec went three wide with Richael and Louis Carbone to take over the race lead on lap five. Dice Racing teammate Ben Russo who started 16th on the gird took over third place with just seven laps completed.
Szafraniec continued to pull away from the field but heavy lap traffic was able to be the “great equalizer” as Opening Night feature winner Chris Powers and Ben Russo was able to reel in the race leader. Russo used a lap car as a “pick” to take second away from Powers with just three laps remaining. Jeff Szafraniec would hold off Russo to pick up the win. Powers would finish in third and he was followed by his cousins, Tony and Louis Carbone.
Robert Palmer and Shane Toms led the field of M&M U Pull-It Figure 8’s to the green flag and it was Jason Eck getting the lead when the field got onto the Figure 8 course. Eck would hold off Kyle Skoney and Shane Toms to claim his second win of the season.
