The next to last night of Sunday Night Thunder at Double-X Speedway for 2014 brought a new group of competitors to the track in the form of the “Battle of the Badges” law enforcement race. These drivers had many excited fans to watch them do battle at the California, MO track. Also on the card were the ever popular street stocks, hobby stock and winged sprint cars. Leading off the feature events was the street stock division. At the drop of the green, front row starters Cliff Champney and John Clancy tangled in turn one bringing out the yellow, both drivers were able to restart at the rear of the field. Andrew Roark led lap one but he too brought out a caution flag which put Harlan Dowell at the point. Dowell was challenged hard by young Cole Henson with Henson leading lap 5 and Dowell reclaiming the lead on lap 6 as a caution for lapped car Jake Dent brought the field to Dowell’s rear bumper. Dowell’s time at the front was short lived as sixth starting Steve Beach moved into the top spot on lap seven. Dowell would give chase until tire issues forced him pit side. Cole Henson and John Clancy would challenge each other while keeping the leader in sight. Beach would lead the remainder of the event with Clancy second, Henson third, Roark fourth and Dylan Bias in fifth. Heat races were claimed by Champney and Clancy. A special Dash for Cash in memory of Terry Turpin was ran by the top two finishers in each heat race inverted by their finishing position. Claiming the $150 cash was last starting John Clancy.
The Hobby Stock cars were next up for their feature event with heat race winners Gage Wineland and Kevin Prall leading the field to green. It was a familiar sight as Wineland moved in to the lead followed by Cole Canada and Will Register. Eddie Lavery III was making his presence known moving to the fourth position by lap two. This would be the running order until a caution by Katie Goodson on lap 7 would bunch the field behind the leaders. Cole Canada stopped on the track during the yellow relegating him to the tail of the field on the restart. Wineland was not to be denied as he claimed another feature victory at Double-X this season. Following him under the checkered flag were Lavery, Register, Mike Schrader and Chuck Coffey completing the top five.
The third feature on the track were the visiting members of the law enforcement community for the “Battle of the Badges”. With lights flashing and the crowd cheering on their favorites Travis Yeager and Mike Dierkes paced the field. Dierkes moved in to the lead for the first seven laps with Aaron Bolinger moving to the point four circuits before surrendering the lead to Jason Worthley who would hold off his challengers to claim the victory. Following Worthley across the stripe were Fred Stotler, Bolinger, Kyle McIntyre and Dan Schroeder. Law enforcement agencies from all across the state were represented in this event and they had a loyal legion of fans to cheer them on. Heat races were claimed by Yeager and Dierkes.
The winged sprint cars completed their feature event by running the entire 25 lap race without a caution flag. Jonathan Cornell outpaced fellow front row starter Kyle Bellm on lap one and that was all Cornell would need as he claimed yet another feature event at Double-X. Bellm would keep Cornell in his sights the entire race but was unable to mount a challenge and would settle for second. Tenth starting Taylor Walton would bring his yellow number 15 machine home in third followed by Evan Martin and Tyler Blank rounding out the top five. Three qualifying heat races set the feature line up, these heats were claimed by Bellm, Cornell and Brad Ryun.
The 25th season of racing will draw to a close next Sunday night at Double X with street stocks, hobby stocks, winged sprint cars and 600cc winged micro sprints on hand. After the races, the awards will be handed out and the top point earners in each division will be honored.  Powder puff and mechanic races will follow the award presentation.

The 12th annual Clyde Wood Memorial Race, presented by Xtreme Body and Paint, saw first time winners of the event visiting victory lane Sunday night at Double-X Speedway. The annual race honoring the memory of long time race track flagman Clyde Wood has been one that many drivers put on the calendar each and every year in hopes of joining the stellar list of winners. The ASCS Warrior Region Sprint Cars were the featured class one more time this season at Double-X and it looked like it could be a first time winner of the event parking their car in victory lane. With a large portion of the starting field seeking that first memorial trophy it was wide open as to who would capture the victory. Front row starters Zach Chappell and Josh Fisher bringing the field to green it was Fisher who would put his Curtis Boyer owned number 72X at the point. Fisher opened a small but comfortable lead in the early laps as the competition mounted a challenge behind him. Fisher led the first 12 laps as Jonathan Cornell would advance to second by lap four and begin to set his sights on the leaders machine.  Jason Johnson moved into third on lap 10 with Zach Chappell and Kyle Bellm trading the fourth and fifth places lap after lap. A spin by Casey Baker on the completion of lap 12 saw the leader Fisher get some damage to the front end of his machine as it ground to a halt on the front straightaway and this would mark the end of Fisher’s bid to claim the win as he retired to the pit area. On the restart it was Cornell in front with Johnson on his rear bumper. Kyle Bellm would slip past Johnson to take second on lap 15. While all of this dicing was going on at the front. Tyler Blank was moving up from his 19th starting position to move into the top ten.With three laps to go, Cornell continued leading while Jason Johnson moved around Bellm into second. At the checkered flag it was Cornell, Johnson, Bellm, Chappell and Brandon Hahn in the top five. Coming across and completing the top ten were Corey Nelson, Ricky Stangl from 16th, the Hard Charger winner was Tyler Blank in eighth, Randy Martin was ninth after starting 18th and Cody Baker made his return to racing coming home a solid tenth. In victory lane Cornell said this race is one they always circle on their racing calendar and after having some second place runs in the past was happy to add his name to the list of winners. This feature win was also Jonathan’s eighth victory in a row in sprint car action.
The qualifying heats were won by Fisher, Hahn, Nelson and Chappell. The B Feature was won by Chris Morgan. Also transferring from the ‘B’ were Randy Martin, Tyler Blank and Jay Russell.
Another first time winner of the event also claimed his first victory of the season at Double-X. In the 600cc Micro Sprint Feature, young Garett Williamson of COlumbia wired the field in picking up the victory in the 20 lap main event. Williamson looked like a seasoned veteran as he outran many multiple feature event winners. Following the leader under the double checkered flags were Chris Koch, Dean Hathman, Ryan Marsch and Scott Hathman in the top five. Miles Paulus, Jordan Howell, Jamie Kelz, Jimmy Dowell and Travis Arnold completed the top ten. Qualifying heat races were claimed by Williamson, Dean Hathman and Marsch. A lot of close racing throughout the field makes this class a fan favorite at Double-X.
The Street Stock division saw a very close feature event as well. Derek Henson continued the family success in the Clyde Wood race by picking up the feature event.  Derek’s dad Stan Henson Jr., was the winner of the first annual Clyde Wood memorial race. It was no cake walk this time as Henson had to hold off hard charging Steve Beach who came in a close second. John Clancy came from 12th to finish third with last week’s feature winner Jason Russell fourth and Andrew Roark fifth. Dale Berry, CUrt Turpin, Dylan Bias Cole Henson and Jake Dent would complete the top ten. Russell and Berry were the heat race winners for the evening.
It was a familiar face in victory lane as Syracuse, MO driver gage WIneland picked up another feature win. Wineland was able to hold off the early challenges of Will Register and Eddie Lavery III to claim the victory. Lavery would finish second and Register third with Kevin Prall fourth and Chuck Coffey rounding out the top five. Rudy Wirts, Bryan Alumbaugh and Katie Goodson would complete the cars running at the finish in 6th through 8th respectively.
Two more race night are on tap this season as Double-X completes it’s 25th year of Sunday Night Thunder. Next Sunday night is bringing the “Battle of the Badges” to the Speedway and the final night August 3rd will bring the curtain down for 2014.

Sunday Night Thunder was turned into the 2nd annual “Race for Riley” memorial race in honor of Riley Hudson, a very special young race fan that left us way too soon. As damp weather delayed the start of the evenings festivities slightly, the clouds parted and allowed us to complete a wonderful night of racing in Riley’s honor. Headlining the evening on this special night were the visiting drivers of the ULMA late model association, Riley’s favorite class to watch as a spectator. The 20 lap feature event saw the field led to the green flag, waved by Riley’s mom Tara, by heat race winners Justin Russell and Todd McCoin. Both drivers are no strangers to the tight confines of Double-X and they kept the fans on the edge of their seats for the main event. With the race halted before one lap was complete due to an incident on the front stretch which saw past winner Phil Edmondson rolling his car over and also collecting Chris Cox and Tommy Cordray, the field was reset with only Cordray able to restart. Justin Russell took the point with McCoin pressuring him lap after lap. A slight bobble by Russell in turns three and four allowed McCoin to move into the lead by running the low groove. Russell continued to give chase with Jon Binning and Jake Williams applying pressuring also. With McCoin in front on the white flag lap, Russell again slipped high in turns three and four allowing Binning to move by to claim second. Following the lead trio under the checkered flag were Williams in fourth and Cordray recovered to claim a hard earned fifth. Greg Clemons was sixth, Gage Wineland seventh, and Earl Roark finising the remaining running cars in eighth. There was close racing throughout the field on a fast, taky track.
The Quality Used Cars Street Stock division was next to take the track for their feature event with veterans competitors Derek Henson and Jason Russell starting on the front row. At the drop of the green Russell used the high side to move into the lead with Henson in pursuit. Russell would prove that he still remembers the way around the clay oval by leading the fifteen lap event. He was pressured by Henson and then by Dylan Bias who was running strong this evening as well. At the checkered it was Russell, Bias, Henson, Steve Beach recovering from as early skirmish to take fourth and Brandon Dunham posting a fifth place finish. Dale Berry nipped John Clancy at the line to claim sixth, Clancy seventh, Cole Henson was eight, Jake Dent ninth and newcomer Clifford Lear rounding out the top ten. Derek Henson and Jason Russell claimed the heat race victories.
In the B-W Graphics Hobby Stock division it was a familiar face gracing victory lane as Gage Wineland picked up the feature win. Posting his best finish this year was Eddie Lavery III in second, Mike Schrader claimed third, Kevin Prall was fourth and Will Register was fifth. Cole Canada, Chuck Coffey and Rudy Wirts came across in sixth, seventh and eighth to complete the running order at the finish. Wineland and Schrader were the heat race victors.
The lightning fast Midwest Speed Shop winged Sprint Cars took to the track to complete the cars of racing on this special night. Three qualifying heat races set the starting grid with young guns Ricky Stangl and Taylor Walton leading the field to green. Stangl, in only the ninth sprint car start of his career, would lead the first three laps before encountering lapped traffic in turns one and two which resulted in him spinning his car in the turns bringing out the yellow while at the same time Nathan Ryun made contact with a fellow racer in turn four and flipped his car bringing out the red. On the restart Stangl had to rejoin the field at the tail for bringing out the yellow which put Taylor Walton in the lead. Walton drove hard and would lead the next 18 circuits before a familiar sight would make his presence known, that being tenth starting Jonathan Cornell who would put his white #28 into the lead coming out of turn four on lap 22. Cornell would lead the remaining laps to claim the victory. Walton would finish second, Tyler Blank came from 11th to take third from Kyle Bellm at the stripe. Bellm would finish fourth and Brad Ryun claims fifth. Randy Martin advanced from 13th to sixth, Corey Nelson was seventh, Ricky Stangl recovered from his early mishap to claim eighth, TJ Muths was ninth and Mitchell Moore would claim tenth. On a side note in the sprint cars, Cody Baker was on hand to watch his sister compete. All of us at Double-X continue to wish Cody a complete recovery from his injuries sustained earlier this year.
A big thank you goes out to everyone that helped make this “Race for Riley” such a big success. Thanks to the drivers, crews and sponsors that donated items for the fundraising raffle and auction as well, with part of the proceeds going to the Childrens Hospital in Riley’s memory. Next week the ASCS Warrior Region Sprint Cars will be on hand for the annual “Clyde Wood” Memorial race presented by Xtreme Body and Paint. We look forward to a stellar field of competitors on hand in all divisions. Please plan to spend your evening with us for another edition of Sunday Night Thunder.

Cornell Captures the “Red, White and Blue Tour” Finale at Double-X Speedway!
The ASCS Warrior Region Sprint Car “Red, White and Blue Tour” came to a close Sunday night at Double-X Speedway in California, MO. Sedalia, MO sprint car ace Jonathan Cornell had captured the opening night on Thursday at Double X and followed that up with a victory Friday night at Callaway Raceway in Fulton, MO. Mother nature claimed the event at Randolph County Raceway on Saturday bringing the cars and stars and a legion of fans to Double-X Speedway to see who would claim the title of Red, White and Blue Champion. With 31 ASCS driver on hand, it could be anyone’s race. With Topeka, KS wheelman Chris Morgan on the pole of the feature and reigning ASCS National Champion Jason Johnson alongside the stands there was an electric feel in the air as the 25 lap main event took the green. Using the high line to his advantage, Jason Johnson would lead from the outset with the fleet #28 of Cornell quickly moving into second. Cornell patiently stalked the #41 around the tight quarter mile oval as the duo started encountering lapped traffic on lap 10. As the laps clicked by Johnson would continue to lead until a lapped car held up the driver from Rocky Mount, MO in turns 1 & 2 on lap 22 allowing Cornell to slip by and lead the remaining three laps to claim his third main event of the weekend and to be proclaimed point champion of the ‘Red, White and Blue Tour’. Chris Morgan was able to run a very consistent race claiming third at the checker, with local shoe Corey Nelson of Eugene running an impressive fourth. Second generation driver Evan Martin of California claimed fifth, one spot ahead of his dad, Randy Martin who brought his #14 home in sixth. Kyle Bellm of Nixa, was seventh, past ASCS National Champion Zach Chappell claimed eighth after starting 16th, Jay Russell was ninth and Josh Fisher completed the top ten.
Four qualifying heat races in the ASCS Sprint Car division helped to set the field. Victories were claimed by Jason Johnson, Randy Hibbs, Chris Morgan and Corey Nelson. The B Feature event saw a lot of close racing action as well with California driver Tyler Blank bringing home the victory. Joining Blank in transferring to the main event were Ricky Stangl, tenth starting Lanny Carpenter and Nathan Ryun. The ASCS Warrior region will be making one more trip to Double-X on July 20th for the annual Clyde Wood Memorial race.
The Street Stock division saw some close racing in the field which provided excitement for the fans of fendered racing at Double-X. California driver John Clancy withstood challenges from Steve Beach, Cole Henson and Dale Berry before claiming the well earned victory. Beach would use a late race pass on the high side of the track to claim second over a strong third place run by Cole Henson, older brother Derek Henson followed in fourth with Berry coming home in fifth. Steve Dieckman was sixth, Chris Dunham seventh, Curt Turpin was eighth, Jake Dent finished in ninth and Blake Davidson rounded out the top ten. Heat races were won by Beach and Clancy.
Another large field of 600cc Micro Sprints were on hand to do battle atop the clay track to close out the weekend of racing. Marshall, MO driver Brian Lunsford showed the way by claiming the victory over the large field of competitors. Surviving restarts he led the duration of the 20 lap event with a lot of racing going on behind him. Travis Arnold of Pilot Grove had another good run finishing second, Ayrton Gennetten gave Arnold a strong run but came up third, fourth was Kameron Key of Warrensburg and Garret Williamson claimed fifth after starting 21st. Ryan Marsch was sixth, Scott Hathman was seventh, Mile Palus finished eighth, Stanley Kreisl started 22nd and finished ninth and Clayton Hisle came from 25th to finish tenth. Heat race checkered flags were taken by Quinton Benson, Lunsford and Key. The 600cc Micro Sprint will take a week off before returning to Double-X.
The Hobby Stock feature event was all Gage Wineland as he claimed another resounding victory in the feature event. Close racing behind the winner saw Mile Schrader prevail with a second place finish, Cole Canada ran third in his second visit to the track, Eddie Lavery III was fourth and Thursday night victor Will Register was fifth. Completing the sixth through tenth spots were Kevin Prall, Rodger Deatherage, Chuck Coffey, AJ Wirts and Laura Atkinson. Heat races were won by Prall and WIneland.
Next Sunday night is the “Race for Riley”, Riley Hudson Memorial Race. The Winged Sprint Cars, Street Stocks and Hobby Stocks will be joined by the ULMA Late Models for their second visit of the season. Riley’s favorite class was the Late Models and we hope to see a good field of the visiting stars on hand. There will also be a live auction at intermission and a portion of the proceeds are earmarked to go the Children’s Hospital in Columbia in Riley Hudson’s memory. Gates open at 5, Hot laps at 7, Racing at 7:30. For more info, follow Double-X on Facebook or call the track information line at (573) 796-4694.

For Immediate Release–
The Independence Day Weekend of racing kicked off at Double X Speedway Thursday night with the opening round of the ASCS Warrior Region Red, White and Blue Tour. If the racing on opening night is any indication, Missouri Sprint Car Fans are in for a great weekend of racing. With 31 of the regions top stars on tap things shaped up to be quite interesting. The four qualifying heat races gave fans a chance to pick their favorites in some exciting preliminary racing. The first heat was brought to the green by Northwest Missouri veterans JR Topper and Randy Hibbs. After the initial start was waved off, Hibbs took to the high line and earned the victory over Topper, Harli White and Corey Nelson. The second heat saw a battle between Jonathan Cornell and Brandon Hanks with Cornell taking the lead as the white flag was waved only to have Hanks pull a slide job in turn 3 making contact with Cornell but Hanks held on for the victory. Cornell was able to gather his machine and claim second with Randy Martin and Tyler Blank third and fourth.The third heat was all Kyle Bellm, claiming the victory with Josh Fisher second, Chris Morgan third and Sean McClelland fourth. The final heat race was taken by local veteran Lanny Carpenter with Paul Solomon second, Curtis Boyer third and Matt Close fourth. The top eight driver in passing points would redraw for their starting position in the main event. After the redraw Josh Fisher and Randy Hibbs would make up the front row.
For the 30 lap main event Fisher and Hibbs led the field to green and after two failed starts, the first yellow would see Chris Morgan and Randy Martin getting together in turn one and Martin would retire to the pit area. A second yellow for Harli White would regroup the field once more. Randy Hibbs would lead lap one with Fisher moving by to take the top spot on lap two. Fisher’s turn at the point would last until lap six when Jonathan Cornell would use the top shelf in turns three and four to take Jove rthe lead. Cornell would do battle with lapped traffic with Fisher closing and challenging until lap 22 when Kyle Bellm moved into second and began to reel in the fleet Cornell. At the checkered it was Cornell, Bellm, Fisher, Sean McClelland  and Evan Martin rounding out the top five. Zach Chappell, Jay Russell, Harli White, Brandon Hanks and Lanny Carpenter would finish sixth through tenth. Martin, Chappell and Russell made impressive runs from the back of the starting grid as the qualified through the B Main event. Russell was the winner of the B with Martin, Chappell and Corey Nelson also transferring.
The largest field of 600cc Micro Sprints ever at Double X was on hand with 27 cars starting the main event. Scott Hathman of Columbia led the event from the drop of the green to take the victory but was pressured by several drivers through out the duration. Ryan Marsch was pressuring Hathman until a restart after a red flag on lap 15. At the checkered Hathman was followed by Dwayne Benson, Quinton Benson, Jordan Howell, and Marsch completing the top five. Sixth was Nick Schaefer, seventh went to Brian Lunsford, Dean Hathman was eighth, Ayrton Gennetten ninth and Kyle Schlotz was tenth. Heat races were won by Schlotz, Scott Hathman, Dwayne Benson and Marsch.
The Street Stock class put on an entertaining race with Derek Henson only leading one lap but it was the one that counted the most as he led the field under the checkered. Following Henson to the stripe was Dale Berry, John Clancy, Curt Turpin and Harlan Dowell. Heat races were won by D. Henson and Chris Dunham.

Sunday Night Thunder roared again Sunday night with exciting racing action in all four classes that were on the card. All in attendance were “Racing for a Reason” as the night was celebrating the fight against Autism. Special events were planned and hosted by sprint car driver TJ Muths and his family to raise money for this worthy cause. The fundraising for this was not over shadowed by the action on the track though as the driver in attendance were definitely “Racing for a Reason”. The Street Stock class rolled off first on the night with rookie Cole Henson and veteran Steve Beach leading the field to the green flag. Beach would lead lap one and not look back as he claimed his second feature event in a row. It was no walk in the park with his challenges coming from first Henson, then Dale Berry and John Clancy both pressuring the leader. At the checkered Beach claimed a victory margin of about 3 car lengths with Berry nipping a strong running Clancy at the wire for second. Harlan Dowell came from shotgun on the field to claim fourth and Johnny Wyman finished fifth. Completing the top ten were Henson, Chris Dunham in seventh, Keeth Strange in eighth, Cliff Champney ninth and James Keeran tenth. Heat races were claimed by Cole Henson and Steve Beach.
 
The Hobby Stock division saw Gage Wineland continue his wining ways in claiming the feature event. Kevin Prall finished a strong second, Will Register was third, Mike Schrader finished fourth and AJ Wirts completed the top five. Rodger Deatherage ran sixth, Chuck Coffey was seventh, Larry Dickson came in eighth, Eddie Lavery was ninth and Jacob Hardy rounded out the top ten. Heat races were won by Schrader and Wineland.
 
A large field of competitors was on hand in the 600cc Micro Sprint division which saw Sweet Springs, MO wheelman Quinton Benson claim the victory over the field. Ryan Marsch had one of his better runs this season to take second, Nick Schaefer claimed third after starting 14th, then it was Scott and Dean Hathman rounding out the top five. Placing sixth was Chris Koch advancing from 20th, Jordan Howell was seventh, Travis Arnold finished eighth, Garret Williamson placed ninth and Ayron Gennetten rounded out the top ten after starting 23rd. A lot of racing took place in this event. Qualifying heats were won by Scott Hathman, Quinton Benson and Kyle Spry.
 
Twenty winged sprint cars took to the track to “Race for a Reason” with Kyle Bellm and Brad Ryun leading the field to the green. Bellm would put the JHR 77 on the cushion and lead the first thirteen laps until making contact with the wall coming out of turn two while attempting to hold off a charge by second place running Jonathan Cornell. Bellm would flip after the incident also collecting Casey Baker as she tried to avoid Bellm’s machine. After the track was cleared for the red flag, Cornell would assume the lead and hold off a strong running Evan Martin. As the checkered waved after 25 laps, Cornell claimed the victory, Martin was second, Tyler Blank claimed a solid third, TJ Muths ran fourth and Taylor Walton brought home his machine in fifth. Ricky Stangl was sixth, Lanny Carpenter seventh, Matt Close eighth, Broc Elliott was ninth and first night driver Bobby Duncan was tenth. Heat races were won by Bellm, Brad Ryun and Walton.

After two weeks of mother nature watering down the racing at Double X Speedway in California, MO, she tried to make her presence known a third time but it was not to be as the racing action was completed before the rain arrived. The talk of the night was the arrival of some out of town invaders into the winged sprint car ranks, ready to tackle the weekly cars and stars of the Double-X ranks. With nationally known Casey Shuman on hand along with regional stars Harli White and Aaron Reutzel also signed in, fans were dealt some quality racing action. As the qualifying heats for the Midwest Speed Shop winged sprint cars rolled off it was local driver Tyler Blank claiming heat #1 in his familiar 75 machine. The second heat saw another familiar face claiming the checkered flag as Jonathan Cornell out ran Aaron Reutzel to claim the victory. The third heat race saw invader Harli White claim a solid victory over the field. These three would start in the first three spots for the feature event. With Blank, Cornell and White leading the field to the green, the first start was called back for the car of TJ Muths bringing out the yellow. A second start saw Cornell take the lead over Blank and third running White. However on lap two White would spin out, relegating her to restart at the tail of the 22 car field. Cornell was masterful in his attack on the high side of the quarter mile oval, threading the needle around and through lapped traffic to hold the lead for the entire 25 laps. Withstanding restarts including a lap nine red for the #77 of Kyle Bellm, who made contact with the wall coming out of turn two and tipped over at the head of the back stretch. Bellm was able to walk away, however his JHR machine was finished for the night. On lap ten, third running Aaron Reutzel take second from Blank but Blank fought back two laps later with a crossover move in turns three and four to reclaim second position. As the leaders encountered lapped traffic they would remain in the running order until the checkered flag was waved. Following the cars of Cornell, Blank and Reutzel were, Randy Martin in fourth, Bryan Grimes in fifth, Lanny Carpenter in sixth, Tyler Elliott placed a strong seventh, Corey Nelson was eighth, TJ Muths recovered from the opening lap mishap to claim ninth and Taylor Walton rounded out the top ten.
The ULMA Late Models made their first of two visits to Double-X with Phil Edmondson making the long tow from Marionville, MO to pick up his second ULMA victory of the weekend. Edmondson picked up the win on Friday night at Callway Raceways in Fulton and put a bookend on the weekend Sunday night in victory lane at Double-X. Justin Russell overcame mechanical issues earlier in the evening to claim second by the slimmest of margins over hard charging Gage Wineland who came in third. Chris Cox was fourth, Bob Cummings was fifth, Danny Lorton claimed sixth and Jared Schales rounded out the field. Chris Cox claimed the qualifying heat. The ULMA Late Models will return July 13th for the second visit of the season.
Quality Used Cars Street Stock class had fifteen drivers make the call for the feature event, which had to be shortened due to the time limit expiring. This is the first time in many season that the drivers could not complete the fiftenn laps in the twenty minutes allowed for the event. The driver in the righyt spot at the right time was Eldon, MO veteran Steve Beach who debuted a new car and claimed the victory. Ted Welschmeyer was second, John Clancy Jr. was third, Derek Henson made his return to Double X and ran fourth, Dale Berry was fifth, Curt Turpin was sixth and Cole Henson was seventh. Harlan Dowell Jr. and Tim Cressly claimed the heat race victories.
In the the B-W Graphics Hobby Stock class, Gage Wineland claimed another feature win in decisive fashion over the rest of the field. Will Register was second, Eddie Lavery III was third, Kevin Prall came in fourth and Cole Canada claimed fifth in his first appearance at Double-X. Fininshing sixth was Chuck Coffey, seventh A.J.

A “regular” night of racing was on tap Sunday at Double X Speedway, but some late race action in most of the feature events proved that the June 1 edition of Sunday Night Thunder was anything but “regular”. The Street Stock class took to the track first for their main event and little did those in attendance know what was about to unfold over the fifteen lap event. Pole sitter John Clancy Jr. took the top spot at the drop of the green flag and seemed set to pick up the victory. While Clancy was running the low line masterfully, there was a lot of action behind him as Dale Berry, Harlan Dowell and the rest of the field were racing bumper to bumper and door to door.  A lap 10 caution saw Dowell and Chris Dunham move past Berry into the second and third spots but it was short lived as Dunham faded to sixth on lap twelve. A caution on lap thirteen bunched the field behind Clancy for a green, white checkered finish. Coming out of turn two on the last lap, Berry made a bid on the high side and out ran Clancy down the back straight away, through turn three and four and claimed the victory at the checkered flag. Following Berry and Clancy were Dowell in third, Dunham recovered to claim fourth, Cole Hanson finished fifth, Destiny Dowell finished sixth, with Tim Cressley and Keeth Strange completing the field. Heat race victories were claimed by Clancy and Berry.
Gage Winealnd picked up another victory in the Hobby Stock class. Wineland who took the lead from Eddie Lavery III on lap three, went on to take home the checkered flag in the feature event. Lavery claimed second, Will Register was third, Kevin Prall climbed from twelfth to finish fourth and Chuck Coffey rounded out the top five. The heat races were claimed by Lavery and Mike Schrader.
The 600cc Micro Sprints were also on the card for Sunday night. Jefferson City shoe Kyle Schlotz looked to have the race in the bag but Sweet Springs driver Quinton Benson forgot to make his plans known early in the race. After starting fourth Benson ran in the top four during the first half of the event. A yellow on lap 9 allowed Benson to move into second behind leader Shlotz on the restart and the pair were dead even at the white flag. Benson proved to be the stronger of the two and claimed the victor’s trophy. Schlotz was second, Ryan Marsch ran a good race and claimed third, Dwayne Benson was fourth and Scott Hathman placed fifth. The lone qualifying heat race was won by Schlotz.
The Winged Sprint Cars were on the card and provided another night of outstanding racing action. Mitchell Moore and TJ Muths led the field to the green flag and Moore took the early lead as first Muths and then Jonathan Cornell gave chase. Moore would lead the first sixteen laps before Cornell would gain the top spot on lap seventeen. Cornell would survive two more yellow flags, the last of which set up a green, white, checkerd finish. Randy Martin would advance from tenth to claim second over Moore in third, Cody Baker inn fourth and Kyle Bellm who recovered from a yellow flag event to claim fifth. Qualifying heats were claimed by Moore, Muths and Cody Baker.
“Sunday Night Thunder” continues it’s 25th season next week at the speedway located west of California, MO on Highway 50.

This past Sunday night’s edition of Sunday Night Thunder at Double X Speedway was the “Tribute to Jesse and Daniel”, the annual race remembering the late Jesse Hockett and Daniel McMillan, two members of the racing family that called the California, MO track home. This year it was also a night to remember a young man who was a part of the local racing community Cory Weirman, a friend and relative of many racers, officials and fans at Double X. A bond between the families and friends of these young racers was formed Sunday night as memorials were conducted for them and the Hockett family reached out to Cory’s family in a most generous and touching way. As one member of the Hockett family said, “We are all family in racing.”
The racing action would have made all proud and we know they were watching over as some of the best  in the ASCS Warrior Sprint Car ranks were on hand. After the top sixteen in passing points were set by the heat race action, eight young race fans were paired up with the top eight drivers to draw for their starting position in the feature event. Jonathan Cornell’s partner drew #1 setting him on the pole for the start of the feature event. Adding to the excitement was the opportunity for a driver to make some extra money by accepting the “Hockett Style” Challenge. Racers and fans contributed $950 to the driver who would accept the challenge of starting at the tail of the field and racing their way to the front the way Jesse Hockett did in his final race which happened at Double-X. Jonathan Cornell respectfully declined the opportunity so the chance went to fellow front row starter Josh Fisher who accepted the challenge and the cash. After this the lineup changed to put hard charging Jason Johnson alongside Cornell on the front row. At the drop of the green, Johnson took the point with Cornell and the remaining field racing hard behind him. While JJ kept the Ricky Stenhouse Racing #41 on the cushion and opened his lead, several drivers were making moves and racing through the field. After a lap six restart the running order was Johnson, Cornell and Kyle Bellm in the JHR #77. Cornell would retire to the pits on lap 8, and by lap ten Johnson was being trailed by twelfth starting Randy Martin, Bellm, Evan Martin and Cody Baker. The leaders set a quick pace for the next few laps until the red was displayed for the car of Corey Nelson who overturned in turn one. On the restart Johnson continued the lead with Randy Martin, Bellm, Evan Martin and Jay Russell completing the top five. After a lap 20 caution for the “Hockett Challenge” starter Josh Fisher who had advanced to eighth from shotgun on the field, Bellm used a power move on the high side in turns one and two to take second from Randy Martin. Over the remaining ten laps positions in the field would juggle but “The Ragin’ Cajun” Jason Johnson would take the victory. Following the fleet #41 under the checkered flag were Kylke Bellm in the JHR #77, Randy Martin in John Thoenen’s #0, The #76 of Jay Russell and Bryan Grimes completed the top five in the McGarry #31. Taking the sixth through tenth positions respectively were Evan Martin, Cody Baker, Lanny Carpenter, TJ Muths and JR Topper. Heat Races for the ASCS Warriors were claimed by Cornell, Randy Hibbs, Bellm and Muths. Lanny Carpenter claimed a well earned victory in the B Feature and transferred to the A Main along with the following hard chargers Tyler Blank, Tyler Elliott and Brad Ryun.
Also in competition on this special race night were the always popular Street Stock cars. Harlan Dowell Jr. claimed the feature win but it was no cake walk for the Tipton, MO driver. He survived race long challenges, first from veteran Dale Berry and then from Chris Dunham. At the finish Dowell persevered over Dunham, Tim Cressley, Berry and Johnny Wyman. There was racing from front to back in this event with drivers swapping positions throughout the race. Heat race victories were claimed by Cressley and Dowell.
In the Hobby Stock division Gage Wineland claimed his second victory of the weekend in two different cars. Wineland, who picked up his first career ULMA Late Model victory on Friday, put a bookend on the weekend by picking up the Hobby Stock feature at Double-X over Will Register. Following this lead duo under the flag were Kevin Prall, Eddie Lavery III, and Mike Schrader in the top five. Heat race wins were taken by Wineland and Register.
The visiting support class for the evening were the Mid America Lightning Sprints. A familiar face in victory lane at Double-X, Phil Heavelow of Buckner, claimed the fifteen lap feature event being challenged by Mark Billings for the duration. Dusty Murry was third, Zach Morehead claimed fourth and Ryan Kent came home in fifth. Heat races were claimed by Billings and Heavelow.
The 25th season of Sunday Night Thunder at Double-X Speedway continues next Sunday evening. Be sure to join us for a family friendly evening of dirt track racing in the Heart of Missouri.

Jason Johnson Claims Victory at Double-X Speedway
May 18, 2014
JJohnson0472
Sunday Night Thunder at Double X Speedway continues to impress those in attendance as each week fans can leave the track in wonder at what they see take place on the clay oval. The May 18, edition did not disappoint as a very large turnout of competitors swelled the pit area. Leading off the feature line up were the Street Stock cars and stars. Long time competitors Dale Berry and Ted Welschmeyer led the field to the start and after one lap the running order of the top three was Berry, Harlan Dowell and Welschmeyer. The trio would set a rapid pace over the next handful of laps until the 21W of Welschmeyer would slow due to a malfunction and retire to the pit area as the yellow flag was displayed for the stalled car of Curt Turpin in turn one. On the restart Berry again opened a lead on the field and would hold the advantage until the checkered flag. Following Berry at the flag were Dowell, John Clancy, Jr., Johnny Wyman and Steve Beach. Finishing in the sixth through tenth spots were Cole Henson, Chris Dunham, Curt Turpin, Mark Davis and Welschmeyer. Qualifying heat races were won by Berry and Welschmeyer.
The Hobby Stock class saw the Gage Wineland pick up his second win of the season. Wineland was pressured throughout the feature event by runner up Will Register. Kevin Prall picked up the show placing in third, last week’s feature winner Mike Schrader was fourth and Chuck Coffey was fifth. Sixth through tenth were claimed by Larry Dickson, Joe Reed, Jacob Hardy, Katie Goodson and Jeremiah Wallingford. Heat race victories were claimed by Reed and Wineland. The car count continues to grow in this class providing racing all through the pack for the fans.
In the 600cc Micro Sprint feature event, Sweet Springs driver Quinton Benson was not to be denied as he claimed the top spot in convincing fashion. Benson was followed to the checkered by third generation driver Ayrton Gennetten, Kyle Spry, Dean Hathman and last week’s non wing winner Brian Lunsford came home fifth with the sail back on the car. Rounding out the top ten were Scott Hathman, Kyle Schlotz, Arron Smith, Nick Schaefer and Jimmy Dowell. Heat race victories were recorded by Gennetten and Benson.
The winged sprint cars saw 20 drivers check in through the pit gate Sunday evening with buzzing in anticipation to see in Kyle Bellm would be able to continue his winning streak or would someone new grace victory lane. After a well earned heat race victory over Jason Johnson, Bellm started the feature on the pole in the JHR #77. After an opening lap caution which claimed fellow front row starter TJ Muths and Danny Thoman, the field was reset two by two with Bellm and Johnson making up the front row. This was what JJ needed as he took the lead on lap one and held the advantage over the entire 25 lap main event. Bellm gave chase for much of the race closing on Johnson in lapped traffic but ultimately settled for third as a hard driving Jonathan Cornell would slip by on lap 23 to claim second. Cody Baker ran a consistent race to claim fourth and Taylor Walton was rewarded for his time spent in the shop this week as he claimed the fifth position. Josh Fisher was sixth, Randy Martin seventh, Brad Ryun eighth, Tyler Blank battled engine woes and claimed ninth and Ricky Stangl was tenth. Qualifying heats were won by Bellm, Muths and Cody Baker.
Next Sunday night, May 25th is the annual Double-X Speedway “Salute to Jesse” as we remember Jesse “The Rocket” Hockett with the first appearance of the ASCS Warrior Region Sprint Cars along with the weekly support classes. Be sure to join us for this yearly event.

Mothers Day version of Sunday Night Thunder at Double X Speedway left fans talking about what they had just seen. Kyle “The Kid” Bellm might want to change his nickname to “Top Shelf” as he put on a masterful display of running the high line to his second victory in a row in the winged Sprint Cars at XX. Starting outside row one Bellm put the JHR #77 DRC on the top of the track and never looked back as he led the entire 25 laps of the feature event. After a skirmish at the start of lap two involving several cars, Bellm set sail with fellow front row starter Josh Fisher holding the number two spot. As the leaders began encountering lapped traffic on lap 6, Fisher slipped to third place, behind Bellm and a hard charging Jonathan Cornell. As the leaders were moving through lapped traffic all was well until a lap 22 yellow for a stalled car on the backstretch reset the field behind Bellm with Cornell, Tyler Blank, Brad Ryun and Randy Martin in the top- five. Bellm was able to hold off Cornell over the final three laps to record his second win in a row for the JHR team. Following Bellm across the stripe were Cornell, Blank, Martin claimed fourth after starting 16th and TJ Muths slipped into the fifth spot at the checkered. Ryun, Fisher, Corey Nelson, Tyler Elliott and Cody Baker completed the top ten. Qualifying heats were won by Fisher, Bellm, and Ryun.
A special event on tap Sunday night were the non wing 600cc micro sprints. 16 drivers took the green in the feature event with Brian Lunsford claiming the victory. Lunsford held off the hard charging duo of Dean and Scott Hathman to take the checkered. Quinton Benson and Ayrton Gennetten rounded out the top five. Kyle Schlotz, Austin Crane, Jim Dowell, Nick Schaefer and Ethan Green made up the six through ten spots. Lunsford led all 15 laps which was slowed by a caution and red on lap two for two separate incidents. Heat race victories were taken by Lunsford and Dean Hathman.
The Hobby Stock main event looked like it was going to be a repeat for Gage Wineland, however it was not to be as a lap seven altercation with a lapped car relegated Wineland to the rear of the field. Pole sitter Mike Schrader was the lucky recipient and held off former track champion Will Register over the remaining five laps to seal the victory. Kevin Prall was third, Wineland recovered from the restart to finish fourth and Joe Reed was fifth. Completing the top ten were Chuck Coffey, Larry Dickson, Laura Atkinson, Rudy Wirts and Doug Coffey. Heat races were claimed by Schrader and Wineland.
Also on tap were the popular Street Stocks with John Clancy Jr., claiming the victory. Clancy started on the pole due to mechanical misfortunes befalling Dale Berry and at the drop of the green Clancy won the drag race into turn one, besting fellow front row starter Harlan Dowell, Jr. The lead duo ran nose to tail for the 15 lap event with Steve Beach third, Cole Henson fourth and Tim Cressley claiming fifth. Heat were won by Berry and Dowell.
The 25th season of Sunday Night Thunder continues at Double-X next week, be sure to join us. Gates open at 5, races start at 7:30.
BELLM Claims Top Honors at Season Opener
bellm
Sunday Night Thunder on May 4, 2014 marked the 25th season of racing at the California, MO speed plant and a large field of drivers and the faithful contingent of fans were on hand to start the year off. The track hosted four classes of cars in competition with several new faces in attendance to challenge the old guard atop the 1/4 mile clay oval. The headline class since the beginning has been the Winged Sprint Cars and Sunday night continued the tradition. Nixa Missouri driver Kyle Bellm had a stellar run in his new ride the JHR #77 as he took the lead at the drop of the green and was not to relinquish the point for the entire 25 lap main event. Bellm maintained a comfortable lead for 16 laps before the events only caution came out for a car stopped against the inside guardrail on the back stretch. This caution allowed the field to close up on the rear of the pink #77, which allowed Jonathan Cornell to pressure Bellm for the remainder of the event. Cornell made it close as he made a strong run on the white flag lap but came up short at the checkered allowing Bellm to claim opening night honors at XX. Following the lead duo across the stripe were Tyler Blank in third, Cody Baker in fourth and TJ Muths claiming fifth. Completing the top ten were Bryan Grimes, Brad Ryun, Josh Baughman, Taylor Walton and Corey Nelson. Cody Baker, Bellm and Ryun claimed the qualifying heat races.
 
The Street Stock class had the opening feature event of the night with a familiar face returning to victory lane. John Clancy,Jr. of California claimed the feature event over Johnny Wyman of Fulton, Curt Turpin claimed third Harlan Dowell was fourth and rookie Cole Henson took fifth. Rounding out the field were Chris Dunham, Steve Beach and Jake Dent. Heat races were won by Beach and Clancy.
 
The 600cc Micro Sprints with wings were on tap also Sunday night. Dean Hathman and Ayrton Gennetten led the field to the green flag. Hathman put his yellow #56H on the point and never looked back claiming his first feature win of 2014 at XX. Gennetten ran a strong second with Jordan Howell claiming third, Scott Hathman fourth and Chris Koch placing fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Garrett Williamson, Kyle Spry, Nick Schaefer, Jim Dowell and Ryan Marsch. The heat races were claimed by Dean Hathman and Ayrton Gennetten.

The curtain has drawn on another season of racing at Double-X Speedway but the performers on the dirt stage will leave fans with much to talk about over the off season. With an excess of rain on Friday in the area the traditional Saturday finale had to be run on Sunday night. The pits were full as drivers checked in for their last time to do battle at the Speedway in 2013.

 

Fans will be talking about the feature event in the Winged Sprint Car division for days to come. Wright City, Missouri shoe Adam Jones took the lead at the drop of the green over fellow front row starter Bryan Grimes and third starting Tyler Blank. Jones kept his number 1A sprinter on the top shelf and opened a small lead over the field in the opening laps but the battle was shaping up behind him. Fifth starting Cody Baker was biding his time and a lap 6 restart saw Baker put the Ted Hall #38 into second place and set his sights on the fleet car of Jones. While the leader began to encounter lapped traffic, Josh Fisher moved into second on lap seven but Baker was not to be denied as he reigned the number two spot three laps later. With the leader Jones working the high groove Baker used the low line to begin to challenge for the lead and moved into the number one spot on lap 21 by a slim margin but Jones continued attacking the cushion and regained the lead and held Baker off by a very slim margin at the checkered flag. Following the fleet leaders across the finish line were Tyler Blank, Bryan Grimes and Corey Nelson respectively in the top five. Josh Fisher would settle for sixth in the Curtis Boyer team car, Curtis Evans was seventh, TJ Muths slipped by at the finish to claim eighth over ninth place finisher Lanny Carpenter and Frank Brown rounded out the top ten. Qualifying heat races were won by Grimes and Jones. After taking the checkered Jones performed some celebratory victory donuts in turns 3 & 4 reminiscent of his friend Jesse Hockett.

 

The Street Stock division saw a high level of attrition in their feature event but that did not dampen the quality racing which occurred in the event. Derek Henson survived five failed attempts to start the feature and took the lead on the opening lap. Early challenges from Jerry Unger and then from hard charging John Clancy Jr. would ultimately see Clancy taking the lead on lap eleven and with victory in his grasp a yellow flag for the stalled car of Dylan Bias crossways in turn one would cause the yellow flag to be displayed on the final lap. As the field was shaping up for the restart Clancy’s engine would expire on the front straight which placed Henson back in first place. Henson would claim the victory on the green, white, checkered restart. Curt Turpin had a very strong run to take second, Jim Kimbell came home third, Mark Davis recovered from an early spin to take fourth and Jerry Unger was fifth. Dylan Bias crossed the stripe sixth. Heat race victories were taken by Ted Welschmeyer and Henson.

 

Fourteen Hobby Stock drivers answered the call for their feature event with Gage Wineland claiming another feature victory. Wineland was chased to the checkers by Will Register’s #77 machine. Kevin Prall claimed a solid third, Chuck Coffey was fourth and Mike Schrader claimed fifth. AJ Wirts was sixth, Larry Dickson finished seventh, Jeremiah Wallingford was crossed under the checkered flag eighth. Register and Wineland claimed the heat races.

 

It was once again the Dean Hathman show in the 600cc Micro Sprints as he claimed a comfortable victory. Behind the leader the action was quite intense as Dwayne Benson, Scott Hathman and Cole Campbell waged a torrid battle for second through fourth. At the checkered flag it was Benson who would claim the runner up position, Campbell was third, Scott Hathman fourth and Kyle Schlotz finished fifth,

 

After the evenings racing card was complete the season awards were presented.  Complete award results will be reported in next week’s edition of The California Democrat.

 

Track owners Kyle and Carol Wirts wish to thank all of the fans and drivers that helped to make the 2013 season at Double X Speedway a successful and memorable one. Enjoy the off season and we hope to see you all return for “Sunday Night Thunder” in 2014.

Sunday night thunder took center stage one more time at Double-X Speedway for ‘Sonic Night 2013′. The overcast skies made for a tacky, fast track that drivers took advantage of in every class. The COOOPER RACING Winged Sprint Cars took center stage with an exciting feature event for 25 laps around the venerable speedway. After a missed opportunity on the first attempt at starting the feature, outside front row starter Josh Fisher suffered mechanical problems which moved Adam Jones to the outside of row one beside pole sitter Bryan Grimes. Jones used the top of the track to his advantage by taking the lead into turn one and never looked back. Had he looked back he would have seen Cody Baker charging into the second position and gain on the leader as the field encountered lapped traffic and Baker put himself in position to make a last lap pass on the leader but came up short as Jones claimed the victory. Baker crossed the line in second with Corey Nelson running a very smooth race to claim third. Tyler Blank would take home fourth position and Grimes would finish fifth. Lanny Carpenter was sixth, Casey Baker claimed seventh, PJ Grimes came home eighth, David “Farmer” Brown returned to the driver’s seat to finish ninth, TJ Muths was tenth and Fisher rounded out the feature event starters. Curtis Boyer was unable to start the feature event after tumbling down the back stretch in his heat race after contact with another car. Qualifying heats were claimed by Grimes and Fisher.

 

The Hobby Stock division had three of the fastest cars in the class starting at the head of the field. Seth Jacobs and Will Register led the field to the green with third starting Gage Wineland hot on their rear bumpers. As long time announcer Dave Van Patten used to say “There’s not enough mustard to cover these hot dogs!” the trio opened up daylight between themselves and the rest of the field. Jacobs would lead the opening lap with Register moving to the point on lap two with Wineland in the second position. On lap six Wineland would take over the lead and claim the victory with Register ringing up second, Jacobs third, Chuck Coffey claims fourth and AJ Wirts crossed the line in fifth. Mike Schrader was sixth, Larry Dickinson finished seventh, Jeremiah Wallingford was eighth, Jacob Harty was ninth and Laura Atkinson rounded out the top ten. Heat races were claimed by Jacobs and Register.

 

The 600cc Micro Sprint field was led to the green by heat race winners Scott and Dean Hathmann. At the outset Dean Hathmann showed his muscle and rapidly opened up a straightaway lead over the field. Sixth starting Jordan Howell finished a strong second, Scott Hathmann was third, Brian Lunsford claimed fourth and Cole Campbell claimed fifth. Garet Williamson crossed the line sixth followed by Ben Brown in seventh, Arron Smith in eighth, Tom Sydnor in ninth and Lexi Neeley in tenth.

 

Dale Berry took the lead on the opening lap of the Street Stock feature event and held off the field to claim the victory. John Clancy, Jr. drove to second from the fifth starting spot, Derek Henson claimed third with Keeth Strange fourth and James Keeran finished fifth. Jim Kimbell and Johnnie Strange completed the field. Berry claimed the sole heat race in the division.

Sunday Night Thunder at Double X Speedway completed the bookend of racing for the Holiday weekend and the drivers in attendance did not disappoint. With the Cooper Racing Winged Sprint Cars racing for an increased purse 20 drivers checked in to try their hand at collecting the top prize. The stands were buzzing with excitement as the feature line up was led by the father/son duo of Randy and Evan Martin. On the opening lap it was Evan Martin who would take the point and lead the first few laps with his father Randy following. Fans eyes, however, were also watching tenth starting Tyler Blank and twentieth starting Jonathan Cornell who were advancing through the field. A lap five restart saw Randy Martin move to the front with a pass in turns three and four. Randy would lead until lap nine when Blank would complete his charge to the front of the field and take the lead. From that point forward Blank would maintain a comfortable lead over the competition.  Randy Martin would claim the second position with Evan Martin coming home third, Lanny Carpenter claimed fourth and Jonathan Cornell would advance 15 spots to claim fifth.  Curtis Evans drove a steady race to claim sixth, Bryan Grimes finished seventh, TJ Muths advanced from eighteenth to eighth at the stripe with Kyle Bellm finishing ninth and Chad Ely claimed tenth.
Three qualifying heat races were run with Randy Martin, Evan Martin and Bryan Grimes claiming the three respectively.
The 600 cc Micro Sprints were on hand with Quinton Benson of Sweet Springs claim his first victory of the season at Double X. Benson took the lead on lap one and survived challenges first from Cole Campbell and then from Ayrton Gennetten to claim the fifteen lap feature event. Following the lead duo of Benson and Gennetten under the checkered flag were Dean Hathmann in third, Cole Campbell in fourth and Scott Hathmann in fifth. Completing the top ten were Corey Nelson, Kyle Schlotz, Tyler Key in eighth, Jordan Howell ninth and Clayton Hisle in tenth. Qualifying heats were won by Benson and Campbell
The Street Stock Division was also in competition Sunday evening with Derek Henson returning to victory lane.  Henson had the field covered for the entire fifteen lap main event.  Early challenger Dale Berry would claim the second position, Johnny Wyman placed third, Andrew Roark earned fourth after a race long battle with fifth place finisher Jerry Unger. John Clancy Jr., Kevin Perkins, James Keeran and Curt Turpin rounded out the field. Henson and Berry claimed the heat races.
The Hobby Stock division completed the card in Sunday evening. Former track champion Will Register again put the Kelly Bullock Racing #77 into the victory circle.

Third place was earned by AJ Wirts, fourth went to Mike Schrader and fifth was claimed by Rudy Wirts. Kevin Prall ran sixth, Larry Dickson claimed seventh, Jeremiah Wallingford was eighth, Laura Atkinson ninth and Ethan Green completed the top ten. Heat races were claimed by AJ Wirts and Register.

The Friday night Open Wheel Extravaganza at Double X Speedway treated the capacity crowd to some exciting all open wheel racing in three classes. Stealing the show were the cars and stars of the ASCS Warrior region.  27 drivers signed in for the special event and put on a show that had fans on their feet. Four heat races helped to set the stage for the A main event. In heat one, California native Randy Martin claimed the victory in his familiar #14. Following Martin across the line were Bryan Grimes, Dustin Barks and Lanny Carpenter. The second heat saw sixth starting Mitchell Moore put the Hockett Racing #77 into the winner’s column. Curtis Boyer, Chad Ely and Mike Peters followed Moore under the checkered flag. Heat three saw a familiar face taking the victory and Adam Jones claimed the victory in his #1A. Evan Martin, Tyler Blank and Josh Fisher completed the top four. Another frequent XX winner Jonathan Cornell claimed the fourth and final heat. Kyle Bellm was second followed by TJ Muths and Jay Russell. The top sixteen drivers in passing points would make up the first eight rows of the Feature event. A “B” Feature saw the top four finishers fill the remainder of the 20 car field. Matt Close and JR Topper led the B Feature field to the green flag but after the 12 lap event, J. Kinder claimed the victory. Cody Baker finished second after a mishap in his qualifying heat. Mike Trent rand third and Tyler Elliott claimed the final transfer spot. Elliott was also the victim of a heat race mishap, turning over in his heat race. Thanks to the hard work by members of his team and the help of Tyler Blank and crew, Elliott was able qualify for the main event.

 

After the top eight drivers in passing points drew for their starting positions, Adam Jones and Jonathan Cornell led the field to the green. Cornell quickly established himself at the head of the field with Jones, Evan Martin and Chad Ely in tow.  Tyler Blank and Randy Martin were quickly moving up through to the front of the field and a lap 4 restart saw Cornell again taking the point with Blank moving into the second spot on lap 5 with Jones and Evan Martin in the top four. The running order remained the same until lap ten when Evan Martin and Randy Martin both established themselves in the top four with Jones slipping to fifth. By lap sixteen the leader began encountering lapped traffic which allowed Blank to close ground on the fleet #28 of Cornell. The race remained under green for the duration with Cornell claiming the victory. Evan Martin claimed second with a last lap pass of Blank who settled for the third spot. Kyle Bellm claimed fourth, Randy Martin was fifth. Completing the top ten were Mitchell Moore, Adam Jones in seventh, Bryan Grimes eigth, Josh Fisher ninth and Jay Russell coming home tenth.

 

The Mid America Lightning Sprints made their second appearance of the season at Double X with 12 cars making the call. Buckner, MO driver Phil Heavelow, a multi time winner at XX found himself in victory lane once again, leading the entire 20 lap event. Second place went to Beau Heavelow after having a good race with Brent Burrows. Mike Trent, pulling double duty would claim third, Burrows fourth and Zach Morehead would cross the line in fifth. Completing the field for the event were MK Billings in sixth, Tony Hudlin in seventh, Greg Black officially in eighth, Rick Murcko in ninth and Bird Schofield in tenth, Ken Billings completed the feature finishers. Heat races were claimed by Phil and Beau Haevelow.

 

The 600cc Micro Sprints ran their event without wings for the first time at XX with some close racing in the field. Eighteen drivers started the main event which was shortened from the original 20 laps due to time constraints. Leading the charge under the green flag were Kyle Houston and Cole Campbell by virtue of winning the first two qualifying heat races. Before one lap was in the books the red flag was thrown for a skirmish in turn one involving three cars. On the restart, Nick Schafer claimed the lead with several driver moving quickly up through the field. A lap three restart saw Kyle Houston move to the point and open up a comfortable lead over the field. Surviving four more restarts, Houston was not fazed as he continued running a smooth consistent race to claim the victory. Following Houston under the checkered flag were Blake Bennett, Ayrton Gennetten, Dean Hathmann, and Austin Crane in the top five. Nick Schaefer, Drew Shively, Chris Koch, Quinton Benson and Brian Lunsford rounded out the top ten. Dean Hathmann claimed the third qualifying heat.

Sunday night racing at Double X Speedway in California has provided excitement for racing fans for over 20 years and last Sunday night proved why. Fans were treated to exciting feature events in all four divisions that were in competition.
Headlining the night were the visiting cars and drivers of the United Late Model Racing Association (ULMA). The heat races showed fans and drivers how quick these cars can get around the ¼ mile track. In the first heat, Todd McCoin of Barnett claimed the victory over Vance Wilson, Earl Roark, Justin Russell, Chris Cox and Kevin Coyne. The second heat race saw top ULMA rookie contender Bobby Penney claim the victory over Brandon Imhoff, Matt Sosebee, Greg Clemons and James Rutledge. This set the stage for an exciting and eventful 20 lap feature event.
The ULMA main was led to the green flag by McCoin and Penney. Todd McCoin jumped in to the lead and opened a comfortable lead over the field with Penney and Vance Wilson in tow. Wilson moved past Penney for second on lap 6 and began trying low and high lines to gain ground on McCoin’s fleet #7X machine. McCoin seemed to be in great form and he held his advantage over Wilson and the remainder of the field. As Wilson moved to the high line to close the gap on McCoin, the leader began to encounter lapped traffic and on lap 16, the Quincy, IL shoe, Wilson moved his #B1 machine past McCoin to claim the victory. McCoin claimed his best ULMA feature finish of 2013 in second. Bobby Penney ran a strong and consistent third, Brandon Imhoff returned to Double X to claim fourth and Justin Russell claimed fifth. Kevin Coyne raced his way to a sixth place finish, James Rutledge returning to racing after a few years absence overcame an opening lap tangle to finish seventh, Chris Cox was eighth, Greg Clemons finished ninth, Matt Sosebee was tenth and Earl Roark was eleventh after being involved in the opening lap skirmish also.
In the winged Sprint Cars, the experienced combination of driver Randy Martin and veteran driver/car owner David Brown joined forces to claim the feature victory.  Martin started the feature event on the front row outside next to pole sitter Tyler Blank. At the drop of the green Blank charged into the lead and looked very comfortable and consistent leading the opening fifteen laps. The lead he had opened disappeared as a yellow flag was displayed for the disabled machine of Taylor Walton. The ensuing restart brought fans to their feet at it placed Martin right on the rear bumper of Blank. As the field charged into turn one on the restart, Blank entered the turn on the high line as Martin dove to the bottom and executed a classic slide job to take the lead as the duo went through turn two. Martin was able to maintain the lead as Blank charged up to the rear of the #48 machine but was unable to complete the pass as they raced under the checkered flag. Following Martin and Blank across the stripe were Jonathan Cornell, Jason Johnson, and Chad Ely in the top five. Bryan Grimes, Cody Baker, Tyler Elliott, Taylor Walton and AJ Wirts rounded out the top ten. Blank and Martin each claimed heat race victories respectively.
The close racing was not limited to the two feature divisions though as the Hobby Stock Feature event saw close racing for the top spot as well. Mike Schrader led the first five laps before being passed by AJ Wirts on lap 6. Wirts would lead for three laps before defending track champion Will Register would make a pass into the top spot on lap 9 and would pilot the Kelly Bullock owned #77 to claim the victory. AJ Wirts finished second, Schrader earned third, Chuck Coffey was fourth and Kevin Prall was fifth. Finishing in the top ten were Larry Dickson in sixth, Jeremiah Wallingford in seventh, Philip Dietz in eighth, Rudy Wirts ninth and Gage Wineland in tenth, Heat races were won by Wineland and AJ Wirts.
The Street Stock feature also features close racing at the top of the finishing order. Heat race winners Andrew Roark and Harlan Dowell, Jr. led the field and it was Dowell taking the lead and not relinquishing it for the duration of the 15 lap feature event. Roark pressured Dowell and looked comfortable in second but was edged at the finish by sixth starting John Clancy Jr. at the checkered flag. Following the lead trio, Johnny Wyman was fourth, Jay Lyle claimed fifth, point leader Derek Henson was sixth, Dale Berry was seventh, Jerry Unger eighth, Curt Turpin ninth and James Keeran completing the top ten.
Double X Speedway will be coming alive this Friday night for a special open wheel event with the ASCS Warrior Region making another appearance at the track. Joining the ASCS Sprint Cars will be the Mid America Lightning Sprints and the 600cc Micro Sprints running without their customary wings. The following Sunday night the Winged Sprints will be running for increased purse monies, along with the Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks and winged 600cc Micro Sprints. Race fans are also reminded to mark down Sunday July 14th as the first “Race for Riley”; Riley Hudson memorial race will be run featuring the return of the ULMA along with the three weekly core classes.

Sunday Night Thunder rolled again at Double X Speedway in California, Mo this past Sunday, both in the sky and on the track. A brief late afternoon thunderstorm brought just a touch of rain but the racing prevailed and the latest edition of racing rolled onto the track with anticipation in the air.
The COOPER RACING winged sprint cars put on a race to remember with several top drivers visiting to challenge the Sunday night regulars.  In the feature event Kyle “The Kid” Bellm put on an impressive show in the feature event. Piloting the Jerry and Jeff Smith 86, Bellm use his front row starting position to his advantage, running the cushion for the entire 25 laps to claim the victory. The race was not without challenges as Jason Johnson hounded Bellm for the entire race, closing to the rear of the Smith machine but was unable to mount a pass. Johnson was piloting the Jack Hockett Racing 77 on Sunday night. With
Bellm and Johnson claiming the first two positions Tyler Blank finished a well-deserved third in his #75 sprinter. Blank overcame a flat left
front tire on a lap 10 caution, which his crew changed, allowing Blank
to rejoin the chase at the rear of the field. Using high and low lines
Blank joined the top three at lap 20 but was unable to mount a challenge for the lead duo. Cody Baker ran a steady fourth and Josh Fisher completed the top five.  Bryan Grimes finished sixth, Tyler Elliott was seventh, Taylor Walton was eighth, Lanny Carpenter ninth and AJ Wirts completed the top ten, Kelly Newcomb and pole sitter TJ Muths, the victim of an encounter with the turn three wall completed the field.  Evan Martin was unable to start the main event. Winged sprint heat races were won by Muths and Bellm.
The Hobby Stock division had a good field of cars again this week and Gage Wineland found himself in victory lane once again. Wineland paced
the field in his #12 machine as the race went green to checker. Chasing
Wineland the entire way was former track champion Will Register. Despite challenging Wineland repeatedly, Register was not able to make the pass and claimed the second position. Chuck Coffey finished third, AJ Wirts was fourth and Rudy Wirts rounded out the top five. Completing the finishing order were Kevin Prall in sixth, Jeremiah Wallingford in seventh, eighth went to Larry Dickson, with Laura Atkinson and Mike Schrader rounding out the top ten. Heat races were claimed by Wineland and Coffey.
Derek Henson continued his winning ways, claiming victory #4 this season holding off the veteran Dale Berry to take the checkered flag. Curt Turpin claimed third, Andrew Roark was fourth and James Keeran made his first visit to the track coming home in the fifth position. John Clancy, Jr., Troy Turley and Jay Lyle completed the finishing order of starters in the feature event. Heat race winners were Henson and Berry.
Finishing the card for Sunday night were the 600cc Micro Sprints. Corey Nelson and Cole Campbell led the field to the green flag with Campbell gaining the advantage and not looking back. Dean Hathman came across the finish line in second, Kyle Schlotz was third, Scott Hathman finished fourth, and Corey Nelson was fifth with Tom Sydnon and Mitch Workmann completing the finishing order. The lone heat race in the division was claimed by Nelson.
Next Sunday night the ULMA Late Model visits Double-X along with the
COOPER RACING 360 Winged Sprint Cars, Street Stocks and Hobby Stocks.

Double X Speedway

Mother nature tried her best to put a damper on racing at Double X Speedway on Sunday morning, but finally she relented and provided some much needed sun to help Kyle Wirts and his track preparation crew get the venerable speedplant ready for the latest edition of “Sunday Night Thunder”. The three weekly classes were joined by the cars and stars of the Wingless Auto Racing (WAR) series to put on a great night of racing for the many fans in attendance. The evening began with the WAR drivers taking to the track for their time trial qualifications. First on the track was Edgerton, Kansas shoe Mitchell Moore. Piloting his yellow #51, Moore toured the quarter mile clay oval in 14.000 seconds to claim quick time for the 19 cars signed in for the event. Second quick was young Taylor Walton, a weekly competitor in winged sprints at Double X.
After the WAR cars completed time trials it was back to business as usual for the street stock drivers at Double X. Derek Henson continued his winning ways by claiming the heat race over Dale Berry, Ted Welschmeyer and Curt Turpin. This set the stage for the feature event with Henson and Berry on the front row. Henson took the lead at the drop of the green and opened a comfortable lead over the field only to see it erased as the caution flew on lap 7 as Berry spun in turn 1. On the restart Ted Welschmeyer pressured Henson on the low side until a flat tire brought the 21W to a stop  and he retired to the pit area. The restart on lap 12 found Henson leading to the checkered followed by Berry who recovered from his earlier trouble to claim second, Curt Turpin ran a strong third followed by Jerry Unger, Andrew Roark and Keeth Strange.
A strong field of Hobby Stocks took the track for their events with the first heat claimed by Seth Jacobs in the black #25. The second qualifying heat was claimed by Chuck Coffey’s #171. For the feature event, Jacobs and Coffey would pace the field to the green. Jacobs would take the lead on the start and be pressured the entire race by Gage Wineland. Wineland would follow Jacobs the entire 12 lap feature never able to make the pass. Following the top two under the checkered flag were Will Register in third, AJ Wirts in fourth and Chuck Coffey rounded out the top five. Kevin Prall, Mike Schrader, Larry Dickson, Laura Atkinson and Rudy Wirts made up sixth through tenth. Jeremiah Wallingford and Joe Reed completed the field.
Third on the card were the WAR Sprint Cars. Two qualifying heats would help to set the field for their feature event. In the first heat, Adam Jones took a comfortable lead in his #1A machine. Jones continued the lead until mechanical misfortune befell him on lap 9. Cody Baker, filling in for his sister Casey in her #9 machine inherited the lead but the victory went to fast qualifier Mitchell Moore who started sixth in the heat. Following Moore and Baker under the checkers were Chad Goff, Chris Parkinson, and Chad Shields in the top five. The second heat saw rookie PJ Grimes and seasoned veteran John Helm leading the field to the green. Helm would lead early but contact with he and Austin Alumbaugh in turn one, which resulted in Alumbaugh turning over would relegate Helm to the rear of the field on the restart. Chris Morgan, returning to the drivers seat for the first time since a season ending crash in 2012, would inherit the lead and claim a strong victory in the event. Following Morgan were Brad Ryun, Taylor Walton, Chad Tye and Helm in fifth.
Feature time for the WAR field saw Brad Ryun and Chad Goff on the front row. Ryun led the opening laps but Goff would move to the lead with Walton in tow on lap 3. Goff continued at the point but Chad Shields was methodically sizing up Walton and took second on lap 10 and then passes Goff for the lead on the next lap. A lap 12 caution bunched the field and would see Shields continuing to lead until lap 17 when Taylor Walton made the pass and took the top spot until lap 23 when Chris Parkinson made the pass and led the remainder of the 25 laps to claim the victory. Following Parkinson under the checkers were Walton, Shields, Brad Ryun and CHris Morgan in the top 5. Rounding out the top ten were John Helm, Mitchell Moore, Chad Tye, Nathan Ryun and PJ Grimes.
The feature class at Double X since it’s beginning has always been the Winged Sprint Cars. The first heat saw California, MO shoe Tyler Blank claim the victory over Adam Jones, Bryan Grimes, Evan Martin and Randy Martin. The second heat rolled onto the track with Taylor Walton claiming the win followed by Cody Baker, Mitchell Moore, Curtis Evans and Andrew Turley. With the heat races in the books, the 25 lap feature event hit the track with Blank and Walton on the front row. Blank led from the outset and almost appeared on cruise control. After a lap 11 restart Blank slowed entering turn three, the victim of engine woes. This put Walton at the front with Randy Martin, in the David Brown #48, in second, Cody Baker in third, Evan Martin in fourth and Tyler Elliott in fifth. Walton was able to run the low groove consistently and led the remaining laps to claim the victory over Randy Martin, Adam Jones, Cody Baker and Evan Martin. Tyler Elliott, Bryan Grimes and Andrew Turley completed the field at the checkered.
“Sunday Night Thunder” continues next Sunday with the ULMA Late Models joining the three weekly classes. Be sure to come out and join us for a father’s day evening at the races. Keep up to date with Double X on Facebook.

Double X Speedway
California, MO

Double-X Speedway, drivers and fans celebrated the Memorial Day Weekend by offering a tribute to a favorite racer Jesse “The Rocket” Hockett, with the annual “Tribute to Jesse” Race. Headlining the evening was the ASCS Warrior Regions cars and stars, who came from near and far to do battle on the tight confines of the 1/4 mile clay oval in California, MO. Also on the card were the Mid America Lightning Sprints, street stocks and hobby stocks. The large crowd of racing fans were abuzz with excitement as some of the nation and regions ASCS stars gathered to remember one of their own.
The headlining class of the evening, the ASCS Warrior Sprint Cars put on a great show. With region point leader Jonathan Cornell, hometown stars Randy Martin and Tyler Blank, and visiting stars Jason Johnson and Russ Hall leading the charge the fans were sure to see some great racing. The feature line up was paced by Rob Hockett in the Massey Racing #2AZ sprinter that Jess had driven on his West Coast racing trips and it was joined by Bob Hiller’s DARE late model, the only car of this type that Jesse ever drove.The feature event was begun with the drivers doing the “Missing Man” parade lap in Jesse’s memory.
When the field came to the green the front row of Russ Hall and Jonathan Cornell led the charge into turn one. Cornell, the master of the high side led lap one with Hall, Randy Martin, Tyler Blank and Jason Johnson in tow. Consistently hitting his marks Cornell opened up a lead over the field and started encountering lap traffic by the sixth circuit. A lap 10 caution slowed the field but Cornell was able to have the benefit of lapped traffic between himself and second Randy Martin. Another caution for Casey Baker on lap 13 brought Martin to Cornell’s rear bumper on the ensuing restart. Cornell was able to continue his high line as the caution flew once more on lap 18 for debris. On the restart Cornell led and was pressured by Martin who was holding off challenges by Blank and Evan Martin who had also been consistently gaining on the leaders. Running from the restart until the checkered flag flew on lap 30, Cornell was virtually flawless as the laps ticked by. At the checkered Cornell was followed by Randy Martin, Evan Martin, Tyler Blank and Russ Hall in the top five. Cody Baker was sixth, Jason Johnson seventh, Bryan Grimes eighth, Adam Jones ninth and Kevin Whitworth brought the Jesse Hockett #77 home in tenth. Cornell and his crew were congratulated in victory lane by Jesse’s father Jack Hockett.
ASCS qualifying heats were won by Russ Hall, Evan Martin and Jonathan Cornell
The Mid America Lightning Sprints made a visit to Double-X with Phil Heavelow, no stranger to Double-X victory lane claiming the feature event. Chasing Heavelow to the checkered was another multi time winner at the speedway Gabe Maycock, finishing third was Beau Heavelow, Mark Billings fourth and Zach Morehead rounding out the top five. Iola, KS driver Rick Murcko climbed out of his machine after tumbling off of turns 3 & 4 during the feature event. Heat races were claimed by Maycock and Phil Heavelow.
The street stock division continues to put on some exciting racing. With the front row made up of contenders Derek Henson and visiting ULMA driver Jason Russell this shaped up to be an exciting feature event. Russell, a former weekly competitor at Double-X took the early lead on lap one but Henson was not to be denied as he put his machine on the low side in turns three and four and made the pass on Russell to take the lead on the second circuit. Henson opened a slight lead but was to soon feel the presence of Ted Welschmeyer who slipped by Russell to take second on lap three. Welschmeyer continued to pressure Henson as the laps went by but at the checkered Henson claimed victory by half of a car length. Following this duo across the stripe were Russell, Andrew Roark and Johnny Wyman in the top five. Curt Turpin came home sixth, Jerry Unger was seventh, Keeth Strange finished eighth, Dale Berry ninth and Jake Dent rounded out the field in tenth.
Henson and Russell claimed the heat races in the division.
A large field of Hobby Stocks were on hand to do battle as well. Gage Nicholson made his first visit to the track this year pay off as he claimed the victory ahead of Will Register. Brandon Lambert was third, AJ Wirts finished fourth and Mike Schrader came home fifth. Completing the top ten were Craig Bangert in sixth, Kevin Prall seventh, Rudy Wirts eighth, Racheal Olejniczak in ninth and Larry Dickson finishing tenth.
A regular weekly program is on tap next week at Double-X. Mark your calendars for June 9th when the stars of WAR will make their only scheduled appearance at Double-X this season. Upcoming events will also include the ULMA late Models and ASCS Warrior region will be returning for two more events.

SCROLL DOWN FOR COMPLETE 2013 SCHEDULE

May 19, 2013
Double-X Speedway
California, MO
Submitted by: Dean Reichel
Night number two at Double-X Speedway was fast paced and full of excitement. With lightning in the western sky, Sunday Night Thunder saw close racing and exciting finishes. The Street Stock feature event provided fans with a finish that had them on their feet. Defending point champion Derek Henson looked to have things figured out running the low line consistently hitting his marks. However things were shaping up to be exciting as another former track champion Harlan “Boy” Dowell was running the high line and came up to take the lead at the line on lap 11. Henson edged back in front for lap 12 before Dowell would lead laps 13 and 14. With Henson on the low side and Dowell on the top the pair entered turn 3 side by side. Dowell’s car pushed a little in the middle of 3 and 4 allowing Henson to edge him at the finish line for his first victory of 2013 at Double-X. Dowell earned a hard fought second, sliding across the finish line, Curt Turpin finished a solid third, Dylan Bias claimed fourth. Last week’s feature winner Andrew Roark was fifth and Keeth Strange completed the field. The heat race victory was claimed by Henson. Point leaders are Roark 174, Henson 172, Turpin 164, K. Strange 92, Joe Miller 91.
When the COOPER RACING 360 Winged Sprint Cars took to the track, the field was led to the green by heat race winners Taylor Walton and Tyler Blank. Both had very convincing wins in their respective heat races and Walton was still riding high for the weekend having claimed a non wing feature win on Saturday night. Blank put his #75 GF-1 Chassis machine on the cushion and moved out to a comfortable lead with Walton and Cody Baker in tow. As Blank continued to lead the field the action was heating up back in the field. Bryan Grimes and Kevin Whitworth were having a good battle for 5th place and Evan Martin joined in the fray with the trio battling hard for several laps. A lap 18 caution for Cody Baker bunched the field back up. Blank led Walton and Grimes to the restart, with Blank still on the cushion, Grimes worked the bottom groove to get by Walton for second on lap 19 and moved by Blank to take the lead on lap 23. Grimes led the remaining two laps to capture the feature victory. Blank would claim second, Evan Martin was third, TJ Muths came home fourth and Kevin Whitworth brought the Jack Hockett Racing #77 home in fifth spot. Rounding out the top ten were Tyler Elliott, Cody Baker, Taylor Walton, Casey Baker and Lanny Carpenter. Top five in points are Blank 184, Grimes 166, Martin 160, Carpenter 138, Baker 136.
The 600cc Micro Sprints were again on the card and Columbia’s Dean Hathman claimed his second feature win of 2013 at Double-X. Hathman was chased for the entire 15 laps by Cole Campbell who took the checkered in second, holding off a strong run by Corey Nelson who came home third, Kyle Schlotz was fourth, Ryan Marsch was fifth. Scott Hathman finished sixth and Nick Schaefer finished seventh. The heat race was claimed by Dean Hathman. The speedway does not keep points for this division.
Not be outdone by the other classes, The Hobby Stock feature had some very close racing as well. Last weeks feature winner Seth Jacobs took the lead from his outside front row starting position with Chuck Coffey and Will Register right on his bumper. Jacobs would continue to lead until lap 10 when Register moved to the point and would not be headed. Jacobs settled for second, Coffey was third, AJ Wirts was fourth, Kurtis Pace came home fifth, Mike Schrader sixth and Laura Atkinson in seventh. Point leaders are Jacobs 186, Wirts and Coffey are tied in second place with 174 points each, Register 160, Schrader 152.
