WEEKLY RACE SUMMARY
by Todd Cumming

Abbot, Long and Perry on Fire at Spartan Speedway

The Comcast Cablevision Super Late Model 50-lap feature had a 12-car invert putting Chris Place and John Dunivion on the front row. Place took the early lead as Dunivion and Jim Davis went side by side for 2nd. Lap 10 had Jeff Finley, driving brother's Doug car, taking 3rd from Dunivion and allowing Charlie Ryan and Phil Massuch to follow. The racing got heated for 2nd as Davis tried to hold off the strong running Jack Landis and Finley. A caution flew for Brent Jack and Jeff Hackworth coming together in turn 2, but the restart had Landis getting the jump on Davis and taking over 2nd. Landis quickly caught Place and the top 4 ran side by side as Finley was outside Davis for 3rd. The top 4 put on a show as Place ran the middle groove trying to hold off both Landis and Finley. Lap 26 had Landis trying the outside of Place for the lead but he couldn't hold it and allowed Finley to steal 2nd. Finley looked to have the quick car and on lap 30 took over the lead from Place. Place then got freight trained as he fell back to 5th as the tight running pack got by. Finley was able to stretch his lead as the race was for 2nd as Phil Massuch worked Landis for the remaining 10 laps. Finley (started 8th) took the win over Massuch (started 7th), Landis (started 6th) , Jim Davis (started 4th) and a great run by veteran Dave Stehouwer for 5th from his 12th starting spot. Finley also claimed the Pierce Race Engines Hard Charger Award.

Tim Ryan, Danny Graham and Jim Davis brought home heat wins. The large 12-car semi-feature was won by Jeff Hackworth. Dave Stehouwer (13.183) set quick time for the 28-car field.

Next out were the WIBM AM1450 Michigan Modifieds and their 35-lap feature. A 9-car invert had Mike Wells and Jimmy Allen on the front row. Wells took the early lead, but once again the current MMA points leader, Bud Perry was quickly moving to the front and took the lead on lap 9. The top 4 ran tight as Dan Logan was outside Justin Kazmar for 3rd. As Perry held the lead, Wells was busy trying to hold down 2nd as Logan and Kazmar ran side by side waiting for an open lane. Lap 21 had Logan deciding to make a move as he drove it in deep in turn 3, but couldn't hold it and fell back to 4th. Logan quickly recovered and took over 3rd on lap 24. Perry had smooth sailing, but the race was for 2nd as the pack entered heavy lapped traffic. Wells continued to hold 2nd as Larry Wallace made a nice move in the traffic to take 3rd from Logan. At the finish line it was Perry (started 3rd) over Wells, Wallace (started 8th), Logan (started 7th) and fast qualifier Bill Luckhurst (started 9th). Jim Butler was the 3-D Auto Racing Supplies Hard Charger finishing 7th from his 16th starting spot.

Ken Buchner, Jim Butler and Bud Perry were heat race winners. Chris Hall won the semi-feature event. Bill Luckherst (13.801) took home the RaceFan.com Fast Qualifier Award for the 25-car field.

The Performance NW Street Stocks had a deep 15-car invert putting Rob Marten and Rob Patrick on the front row. Marten took the lead and continued to hold the point as Dave Parker used a great slide job to take over 2nd from Patrick on lap 9, but it was short lived as Mike McEwan took the spot on the next lap. Fast timer, Ben Hidy was on the move and was up to 4th until lapped traffic ran him up the racetrack and allowed Dane Long and Landon Hidy to get by. Lap 19 had McEwan all over Marten for the lead until 2-laps from the finish when McEwan slowed on the frontstretch and headed to the pits. During the caution, Marten began to spark as lead broke free beneath his car. Officials then sent him to the pits giving the lead to the 3rd place, Long. Long (started 16th) took his 2nd consecuative win over Landon Hidy(started 14th), Parker(started 4th), Ben Hidy (started 15th) and Rich Kinch (started 5th). Long also took home the Lost Tiger Tattoo Hard Charger Award.

Dave Thorburn, Rob Marten and Doc Dutton won the Street Stock heats. Thorburn repeated again in the semi-feature. Ben Hidy set quick time at 14.554 for the 24-car field.

The Midwest Amusement Pony Stocks are quickly becoming the Julie Abbot show as she took home her 3rd feature event of the season. Abbot (started 13th) took the lead at the halfway point from Nate Hinderer and quickly stretched to a straight away lead as Missy Bishop (started 8th) took 2nd from Hinderer. The exciting race was for 4th through 7th and at the line it was Sarah Flotka (started 2nd) over Kyle Ballard (started 12th) as the two traded paint. Kenny Clark rounded out the top 5 with a great run from his 16th starting spot. Abbot cleaned house by winning the Mac's All Car Hard Charged Award (12 positions).

Robert Fletcher and Bruce Jones won the Pony's heats, while Julie Abbot (16.799) was the RaceFan.com Fast qualifier for the evenings 19-car field.
