The Spartan Speedway "Race Recap" for July 23th, 2006

Race Report

Slugfest Draws Streets to Spartan Speedway
By: Michelle Sprague

The Sunday Street Stock Slugfest saw 24 cars time in for their 40-lap Slugfest feature. Dane Long once again topped the qualifying chart which earned him the opportunity to start shotgun on the field, by virtue of a total invert. Steve Oberst started on the pole, alongside Rolly Olney. At the drop of the green, the race was on to lead lap one, with Oberst capturing the spot. Scott Sigman set sail for the front and jumped into the lead, with Ed Newman Jr. in tow, on lap seven. Caution closed up the field behind Sigman and Newman, with Long and Corey Davis setting their sights on first and second. Sigman held off Long until lap 12, and once Long cleared Sigman, it was smooth sailing. Jack Koone Jr. challenged Davis for fifth, as Sigman faded a bit. Koone worked his way into third by lap 21 and went to work on Newman. Long had begun working his way through the back of the field, putting cars a lap down, as Koone tried to find a way around Newman. Sigman had his hands full with Davis, Nate Moon, and Mike Walther. Mike Ammerman jumped into the mix, and the four-some swapped positions a number of times in the closing laps. With very few cars remaining on the lead lap, Long crossed the line, with Newman, Koone, Sigman, and Davis rounding out the top five. Chuck Ammerman, Rolly Olney, and Lou Stremme scored heat wins.
Sixteen Holiday Powersports Pony Stocks wanted their share of the pie, and they put on a whale of a show. Robert Fletcher led the first lap as everyone else was three- and four-wide back through the field. Fletcher continued to lead as Bryan Passick Jr., Brent McCort, and Bo Smith all worked their way to the front. Passick Jr. took over the lead on lap four, leaving McCort and John Ward to duke it out amongst themselves. Wayne Beckner Jr. marched into the top five, by lap six, ahead of Jimmy Scavarda. They continued to run in that order, until McCort was black-flagged for a fuel leak on lap 18. Scavarda got around Beckner to grab the third position with two laps to go. At the stripe, it was Passick Jr., Ward, Scavarda, Beckner, and Tina Anderson. Fletcher and Passick Jr. won their heats.
The 75-lap Super Pro feature saw Modified veteran, Justin Kazmar, take the top spot to lead lap one, after the green flag flew. Jim Davis held down the second position ahead of Rick Everidge. Rob Buckley and Mark Kortz had already begun their move to the front to sit sixth and seventh by lap 15. Tommy Cook jumped into the mix when caution flew on lap 18. Kazmar had Buckley coming fast as he picked off Mike Kugler, and then Jim Davis for third. Buckley pulled up alongside Everidge on lap 25 and took the second spot away. Kortz went to work on Everidge, moving into third on lap 32. Kortz tried to find a way around Kazmar for second, and the two spun on lap 43. Everidge regained the second position ahead of Cook, followed by Shawn Whitney and
Davis. As laps wound down, Cook continued to work on Everidge?s rear bumper, as Kugler closed in on Whitney for fourth by lap 60. Caution flew on lap 63, diminishing Buckley?s lead, with Everidge and Cook trying to get a run on the restart. Buckley, once again, pulled away from the field, as Kortz made his way back into the top five. Cook got around Everidge for second, while Kortz grabbed fourth from Kugler. Buckley captured the win, followed by Cook, Everidge, Kortz, and Kugler.
Twelve Pony Stock drivers entered the Figure 8 competition to try to un-seat the reigning Pony Figure 8 point leader, John Ward. Terry Winstead made a valiant effort, but was only able to hold off Ward until lap five. Ward took over the lead, but by lap 10, had Brian Beckner all over his bumper. Beckner and Ward swapped the lead a number of times over the next four laps, and on lap 14, Ward shoved Beckner out of the way, allowing Bo Smith to slip into the second spot. At the line, it was Ward, Smith, Beckner, Trent Jensen, and Steve Utley.
Then it was the big boy?s turn. The Capital City Crazies hit the track for their 25-lap Figure-8 feature, with some of the Performance Automotive Street Stocks and one Pure Stock, helping to fill the field. It was destined to be a fight to the finish, with three of the specialists grabbing the top three spots, only six laps into the feature. Rolly Olney, ?Stick Boy?, and Dave Thorburn were all running nose to tail until lap 14. ?Stick Boy? slowed for the intersection as Thorburn made a move to pass him. The leader, Jeff Cummings, was on his way through the intersection, and Thorburn clipped Cummings in the right rear. Both cars coasted to the frontstretch, with Cummings able to drive away, minus a wheel, while Thorburn went out on the hook. Jim Gokee assumed the lead, followed by Jerry Atwell, Rolly Olney, ?Stick Boy?, and Ray Derminer. At the close, it was Gokee with another win.
Please join us Friday, August 4th for a ?special show? featuring School Bus Figure-8?s, Super Late Models, Street Stocks, Midgets, Pony Stock, and Pony Stock Figure 8?s. The evening will be sponsored by WMMQ Classic Rock 94.9 and Kitsmiller RV.
