Sunday Night Thunder Returns to XX Speedway!!!
The Sunday Night Thunder has returned to XX Speedway for 2013. A large crowd of spectators and drivers opened the curtain on the 2013 racing season at Sunday night in California, MO. The cool weather was no deterrent to Jonathan Cornell of Sedalia, MO as he wired the field in the COOPER RACING 360 Winged Sprint division. Starting in the front row as a resut of having won his qualifying heat, Cornell hustled around the high side of the track and was not headed as the 25 lap feature went green to checkered. Lanny Carpenter settled into the second spot for 10 laps following Cornell around the high road. Fourth starting Tyler Blank moved passed Carpenter on lap 11 and set his sights on the #28 machine of Cornell. Blank would close in on Cornell but could not muster a pass and settled for a well deserved second place. Following Cornell and Blank under the checkered flag were Adam Jones, Carpenter, and Evan Martin in the top five. Bryan Grimes claimed sixth with Cody Baker, Taylor Walton, Tyler Elliott and Curtis Boyer rounding out the top ten. Carpenter and Cornell claimed the heat race victories in the winged sprint division. Top five in points are Cornell 95, Blank 91, Jones 85, Carpenter 85, and Martin 77.
The street stock division had a very competitive field of cars on hand to compete for opening night honors. Andrew Roark of Henley drove a masterful race using the low groove to hold off all challengers to claim the first feature race of the season. Knocking on his rear bumper was Centertown’s Joe Miller claiming second, Curt Turpin was third, Johnny Wyman fourth and 2012 Season Champion Derek Henson claimed fifth place. Dale Berry and Mark Davis completed the field as some drivers were unable to start the feature event. Berry and Wyman captured the heat race victories. The second street stock heat started off with excitement as Eldon’s Johnny Strange tumbled off the top of turn one, collecting Joe Miller in the process. Strange climbed out of his crumpled car under his own power. Point leaders are Roark 95, Miller 89, Turpin 85, Wyman 85, Henson 75.
The Hobby Stock class had a healthy turn out of drivers competing on opening night. Early race leader AJ Wirts of California held the point for five laps before being passed by eventual winner Seth Jacobs of Centertown. Jacobs secured the win with Wirts in second, Chuck Coffey third, Mike Schrader fourth and Racheal Olejniczak rounding out the top five. Larry Dickson of Bunceton was sixth, Laura Atkinson seventh, Will Register was eighth, Kevin Prall and Rodger Deatherage rounded out the top 10. The heat reaces were won by Register and Wirts. Top five in points are Jacobs 95, Wirts 93, Coffey 85, Shcrader 83, Detherage 73.
Rounding out the card were the 600cc Micro Sprints. Starting on the pole was Columbia’s Dean Hathman and he took the lead on lap one and claimed the victory over Cole Campbell, Corey Nelson, Ryan Marsch and Cole Melby in the top five. Kyle Schlotz, Nick Schafer and Scott Hathman completed the field. Dean Hathman claimed the heat race victory.
