Fultz Continues Black Rock Hot Streak
Winslow started from the outside pole and led all 20 laps of the street stock feature for his second win of the month. Winslow’s No. 88 was fast from the onset of the event but he would develop a push in the car in the later stages of the event, which allowed Daryl Krebs to reel him in and make a worthy bid for the win on the final lap. Krebs would have to settle for second though, with Rich Sharpsteen II completing the podium.
The IMCA Modified Feature was not at all short on excitement. Todd Stone paced the field from the drop of the green flag until lap 11 when the caution flag appeared for the first time for an incident involving Rich Karlnoski. Stone drove away once again on the restart while point leader Phil Yaw drove up to second. It appeared to be a solid point night for Yaw until a mechanical failure appeared on the No. 98 two laps shy from the finish. Then things really got interesting.
Yaw dropping out moved up Jake Maynard in to second, and he went after Stone for the win. As the lead duo entered turn three for the final time, Maynard made a desperate bid for the lead by diving to the inside of Stone’s No. 28, which was unsuccessful as Maynard’s No. 69 made hard contact with the leader and spun Stone around, ending the leader’s great opportunity for his first BRS win.
After Maynard was penalized, Tyler Yeagle would inherit the lead and hold off Rich Karlnoski in the final one lap dash for the shocking win in his first start in an IMCA Modified. Jared Spalding would place behind Karlnoski for third.
The 4-cylinder divisions were working hard on the night, with the adult classes running double features due to a rain-delayed show back in June. Both the FWD and RWD divisions ran their make-up event at the beginning of the night.
In the RWD 4-cylinder make-up feature, Rick Horton moved by Brad Rathbun for the lead on lap seven, but just as he was getting himself into the lead, point leader James Kreidler III was charging hard and slotting into second place. Kreidler gave chase for 10 laps and was finally able to move by on lap 18 to score his sixth feature win of the season. Horton would hang on for second, just ahead of Del Cummings.
The regular event looked very similar as Kreidler kept doing what has been working for him. By lap two the No. 79k was back in the lead and he drove away to win by a half-track, with Rick Horton once again finishing second. Chris Mashewske was third.
The make-up feature for the FWD 4-cylinders ran caution free, which was good news for Trevor Dudley, who dominated the 12-lap event, winning by nearly a half-track over Jeremy Trank and Craig Mahrt.
Dudley could do no wrong later on either as he won the FWD qualifying heat and then made a three-wide pass on Craig Mahrt and Jimmy Neff to claim the sweep of the night, winning another caution-free 12-lap feature event.
The bandits were not the first feature of the night this week, but that didn’t diminish the amount of bite the track had, which worked just fine for Allison Teed, who jumped in front on a lap five restart of the bandit feature to score her third win of the year and pad her point lead. Matt Mashewske scrambled hard but finished second, holding off Brandon Mathews.
