I-35 Speedway Week 5 Recap

Smokin Hot racing was the best way to describe racing at I-35 Speedway on Saturday June 6, 2020.  Eight classes of exciting racing amongst a great field of competitors.  The talent in all these classes is among the best in the Midwest.  Congratulations to all our competitors.

Starting off the night was the always exciting E Mods.  Heat race wins went to Chris Dishong and Blake Bland.  They were among the front runners during the feature which was claimed by Shaunie Lanning.

The second class on the night was the super-fast Pure Stocks.  Brandon Dixon and DJ Barnes claimed the wins in the heat races.  This set up an exciting A feature.  It was a five-car battle for the win, Dixon claiming his third win of the season in five races. Second was Rieli Yonts, third Conrad Kaufman, fourth Chester Kaufman, and DJ Barnes rounding out the top five.

Sport Compacts were next on the event order and their heat and feature event finishes were the same.  John Willard claimed win number four on the year, followed by the other driver with a win David Miller, Cody Munkers took third, Christian Pease earned fourth, and Alexander Foote rounded out the top 5

The Midwest Lightning Sprints were full of speed on this night.  A scary moment occurred in heat race number one when Emma Martin’s machine hit the turn four wall sideways and caught fire.  She walked away unscathed but upset with the damage to her racing machine.  Ken Billings and Mark Billings claimed the heat race wins.  Come feature time it was Chase Fischer from the pole leading Ken Billings, Brandon Smith, and Bobby Layne to the checkered flag.

The power pounding Midwest Late Models were next on the 3/8s mile track.  Heat race winners Kerry Davis and Darek Wiss led the field to green.  The first lap was side by side between the two when Davis grabbed the lead for good coming out of turn two on lap two. Davis led everyone to the 20-lap feature finish with Gregg Truelove racing past Wiss for second, Tommy Cordray finished fourth, and Paul Glendenning rounded out the top five.

The competition was mighty in the USRA B Mod class.  On any given night there are a dozen competitors who might bring home the trophy.  Heat race number one was claimed by Shadren Turner.  Heat race two was a battle from the drop of the green with Daniel Harris and Tyler Cadwallader battling out front and lurking immediately at their bumper was Jake Richards and Ethan Isaacs.  Richards got the win which set up a dandy of a feature.  The heat ,race winners led the field to the green and when the checkered fell it was Jake Richards with his third win.  Second was Shadren Turner, followed closely by Ethan Isaacs, Tyler Cadwallader, Corey Myers, Nic Hanes, and Daniel Harris.  We list the top seven because that is how close they were at the finish, thank you for transponders.

The man to beat in the USRA Stock Cars, Doug Keller, did it again.  Won the heat and won the feature.  In a race for second it was Tony Manley edging Jeff Dixon and a fast closing Austin Bouzek.  Fifth went to the other heat winner, Greg Keuhn.

The USRA A Modifieds put on a dazzling race show.  Heat race winners were Chad Lyle and Darren Shaw.  This twosome made up the front row coming to the green.  Shaw jumped out to the lead and never relinquished it, at the same time he had numerous challenges from Lyle, Mark Dotson, Lee Hibner, and Tyler Hibner.  When all was said and done it was Shaw, grabbing his first win of the season then Lyle, L. Hibner, Dotson, and T. Hibner.

Week 5 is now history to the 2020 racing season.  Week 6 brings the wingless sprint cars along with the weekly classes on June 13.  Looking forward to more great racing as we continue the 2020 season
