Airport Speedway July
25, 2015 Point Race 11 Results
by Track Reporter Reese A. Long
the fans file in on this comfortable weather night little did they know of
the excitement, the action, the battles, and the first’s they were in
stall for tonight. With just five more point races left things begin to get
more serious now. I will tell you this; these shows are getting better every
week. The track is holding moisture more than it has in a while. As I have
stated in other weeks the level of competition at this track has gotten so
much better. The 125cc kids are making moves like season veterans. Drivers
playing the waiting game to get the position they want and of course those
who can’t wait and just go all out for it. It all adds up to fans sitting
on the edge of their seats enjoying the racing action. So read on see who
won, who loss, who took the chances and did anyone keep streaks going win
for the first time or what else went on this night.
week August 1st Summer Slam II Non-Points Race if you like the
excitement of our point races come join us for our Open Competition Race
when the visitor come into town. So come see who will win the big race. See
feature of the night is our 250cc Stock Class. Our point leader is 22 Lee
Reinhardt has dominated this class this year winning 8 out of 10 point races
this year and 8 out of 11 races total for the year. The only other to win a
point race this year is his brother Tyler. Though he is running away with
the points lead all the other position are close and should be interesting
with five point races left. Other happenings today 80 Madison Savaren won
her first race by taking first in her heat race. So who will win the feature
tonight? Our point leader 22 has a good starting spot coming from the second
start? Bringing the field down for the green on the pole is the 44 Robert
Miles. As the green falls the 44 would get the jump on the 22 only to have a
car spin out and cause a restart. This time on the restart the 22 will get
the jump on the 44 and take the lead leaving the rest of the field battling
for position behind them. They will be bunched up once more as the yellow
would fly again. The 49 Donald Bouchelle would get a different view of the
track as he would take a light tumble as most of the field would manage to
avoid him. This would end his night as there was damage to his car. The 22
will keep the lead but the 89s Brad Stansell will take over second. The 44
would end up spinning sending him to the back of the pack. As the 99 Joe
Bednarek and 89s battle for second on the restart switching back and forth
the 13 Dashawn Anderson and 44 would get together bringing the yellow out
once more. On the restart the 22 would retain the lead but there would be a
three way battle for fourth between the 28 Alan Durham, the 7 Trey Jeffords,
and the 77h Adam Harnish. The 77h would win the battle taking over fourth
for now. They would bunch up once more as the yellow would fly once more
giving everyone another shot at the 22. The 22 gets the jump and begins to
pull away. The 80 would take over fourth and set her eyes on third. The
commanding leads of the 22 would be taken away with five laps to go giving
the 99 another chance at the 22. The 77h would take third from the 28 Alan
Durham now the 80 would take over fourth
from the 28 as he slid backwards on the restart. The 80 would take
over third as she continued to move her way to the front. As the checkered
fell and after holding off all the challenge during the restarts the 22
would win his 9th race of the season.
feature of the night would be the 600cc Winged Class. The 42 Kyle Melvin is
our point leader as two weeks ago he issued a challenge for people to come
out and try to beat him. We still would like to see people come our next
points night to continue to answer this challenge. He would be leading our
field down to the green from the pole position. As the green fell the 42
would jump out to the lead. The 12a Jerry Allen would come up catch him run
side by side and would pass him for the lead. The 13 Nathan Smith was having
trouble handling as he had turned the car over earlier in the night. The 13
didn’t give trouble as they would lap him. The 12a and 42 would continue
to battle for first place. As the checkered would fall the 12a would win his
first win of the season followed by the 42 and 13.
feature of the night would be our 125cc Class. Our points leader is the 18
Ryan Heim followed by the 02 Brandon Shipley. The 18 will be starting from
the second position tonight. The 17 Johnny Trendler will be bringing the
field down to the green. So as the green falls 17 jumps out to the lead. The
34 Lavar Scott and the 35 Buddy Schweibinz would battle for fourth. The 34
would get by looking for third now with the 35 in tow. The 18 would
challenge for the lead they would trade position a couple time with the 17
keeping the lead. The 35 would take over third from the 02 and the 34 would
take over fourth as the 02 would slide backwards. With 10 laps to go it
seemed the 17 had the race but the 18 had other ideas as he would caught up
to the 17 pass the him but the 17 would fight back hitting the rear tire of
the 18 slowing his chances of passing him again with just 4 laps to go. As
the green flag fell the 18 would win and the 17 would get second. Stretching
his point led a little further.
feature of the night would be the 270cc Open Class. Point leader is the 7c
Kenny Andreas followed by the 35 Adam Giovanetti. The 7c will be starting
from the second position as the 31 Bill Gunning will be bringing the field
down to the green. Earlier in the heat race tonight the 1s Alex Swift would
try to go high on the front straight away only to have the whole close and
he would end up in the catch fence ending his night glad to report he was
ok. On the start as everyone was battling the 76x Tyler Reinhardt would go
under everyone and take over the lead. The 7c and the 31 racing side by
side, the 31 would get lose and spin bringing out the yellow. On the restart
the 7c would get the jump on the 76x this time as he would take the lead
over and not look back. The 31 would go over another cars tire but manages
to keep his car to just a spinout bringing out the yellow. The 7c would stay
in the lead leaving the 76x and the 71m James Cubbage to fight it out for
second. The field would bunch up once more on lap five. The 7c will retain
the lead the 76x will follow leaving the rest of the field to battle behind
them. The 05 Donald Bouchelle and the x11Mike Kelly would battle it out for
fifth. After a tough battle the 05 night would come to an end. The 76x would
try to challenge for the lead but the 7c would close the door a start to
pull away. The 59 George Summers would bring out the yellow bunching the
field up giving the 76x one more chance to win as it would be a green,
white, checkered finish. The 7c would hold on to the lead and win
tonight’s race over the 76x and extend his point lead.
and final feature of the night the 600cc Wingless Class. Point’s leader is
the 81 Drew Richmond which has had a bad streak lately. Tonight he will be
starting from the fourth position with the 97g Gary Bozowski bringing us
down to the green tonight. Hold on to your seats this will be an exciting
race. The green is thrown the 97g jumps out to the lead the 11x Kyle Rohner
will take over second try for first but can’t get it done. The 25k last
weeks winner P J Williams is making his way through the field wanting to win
two in a row. The 81 running third wanting to change his racing luck. The
yellow would fly as three cars get together bunching the field back up. The
41Mark Landwher night would end early. The red flag would be thrown so they
could separate two of the three cars that were tangled up. The 97g will hold
on to the lead as the 11x will challenge one more time. The yellow would
bunch them up once more. The 97g and 11x battle for first the 97g will hold
him off and regain the lead the 17 Carl Locuson and the 81 would battle for
fourth. A lot of the field would get together on the front straight away
that would claim five cars. The 97g would take the lead on the restart as it
showed he had a strong car tonight followed by the 22c Josh Conover. The
field battling all over 56b Bobby Scherff and the 14 Scotty Smith and many
more as the field is close together. The yellow would bunch them up again
leaving the 97g to battle once more for his lead and what could be his first
win in a mini-sprint. The 97g jumped out pulling away followed by the 22c.
The 56b and 14 still battling it out for position. The 42 Kyle Melvin which
took off his wing to run double duty tonight and the 56b now battle it out.
The yellow would fly again with 9 laps to go. The 11x hits the front
straight away wall keeps under his own power. The second place car 22c would
bring out the yellow and ending his night. The 97g would have to defend his
position again and will continue to lead they will battle it out behind him.
The 14 would get pushed to the infield losing three positions. The yellow
will bunch them up with the 97g in the lead followed by last week winner
25k. I think by now just about all the cars have had a chance at the 97g
tonight but he has taken on all challengers. The 97g will take the lead
again on the restart with 5 laps to go as the battle goes on behind him. As
the checkered falls the crowd would go wild as after several yellow flags a
red flag and lots of challenges the 97g will come to victory lane with his
first micro sprint win in the 600 cc wingless class.
