-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This past weekend we had excitement in every class, from seeing new faces in victory lane, to a driver collecting his 100th feature win in his career!
In the Mini Stock division, Kyler Girard picked up his first feature victory over his brother, Dakota, and his father, Richard. Kyler makes the third different winner to victory lane in the Mini Stock class this year.

In the Pure Stocks, Shawn Hendren would add his third victory in that class for the year. Jerry Wheeler would finish second, collecting his seventh top five finish of the season. Norman Mackley, Corey Cagle, and Tommy Joles rounded out the top five finishers.
In the Street Stocks, Shawn Hendren would double up with another feature win, this being his third win in the Street Stock thus far. Billy Shadden would take home second place, this being this third top five finish of the year, as the previous weeks winner Jeremy Willard took third.

In the Midwest Mods, Matthew Hendren would visit victory lane for the first time in a Midwest Mod. Broc Rose, who had fire under the hood in the heat race, would start tail back in the feature and finish in the second spot, collecting his third top five of the year. His first time visiting the track this season, Fort Scott's Eric Atwood would take home third place over Carter Brownsberger, who collected his first feature win earlier this season. Cody Myrtle, climbing into a race car for the first time this season, would take home fifth place, making this his third top five of the year.

In the B-Mod division, Jerry Morgan would go back-to-back after collecting the win the previous week. Morgan continues his hot streak, collecting his third overall victory of the year. Brayton Skaggs would finish second in the feature, making this his fifth top five of the year, who also has one feature win this season. Matt Rose would finish third, who also chalked off his fifth top five finish of the year and has two feature wins. Justin Amick continued his good finishes with a fourth place finish and taking home his third top five finish. Darren Roberts would finish fifth in the feature event.

The fans that stuck around for the Late Model feature got to see an excellent show between the top three competitors! Shannon Phillips would end up earning the feature win, with Jerry Morgan racing beside him for many laps. There were a couple of times during the race it was too close to tell at the flag stand who the leader was! Phillips collected his 100th feature win in his career, a huge mile stone for any driver. Jerry Morgan would finish second, this making his fifth top five of the year. Rusty Skaggs, who drives the Timmerman owned Late Model, would finish third, claiming his sixth top five finish. Skaggs and Phillips are tied with three feature wins this season!
