Race results:   August 11, 2013

By: Dean Reichel

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. Register rang up the victory over second place Gage Wineland who drove an impressive race by voluntarily starting shotgun on the field.

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. Stay up to date with Double X Speedway on Facebook or at www.xxspeedway.com. You may also call (573) 796-4694 for more information.

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.

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
By: Dean Reichel
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.

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.
