Sturgeon, Bland, Barron Take Saturday Features

By: Chris Nunn

With his back in severe pain, Dan Sturgeon was lifted into his car before the start of the 25 lap A main, with one thought on his mind...win. And that he did. The feature event saw Jeff Wilson lead the field to the green flag, with Sturgeon right next to him on the front row. Wilson would lead the first circuit, as Sturgeon fought to the outside coming down the backstretch. Sturgeon would take the point as the field completed lap number two, putting Wilson to second. Behind the leaders, a battle for the fourth position began to take shape between Frankie Coomer and Mark Barber. Barber would take the position, leaving Coomer to settle for fifth. Barber was not done with his assault towards the front, as just one lap later he would glide by Steve Barnett for the third position on lap seven. Up next on the Barber brigade was Wilson, who was running in the second position. On the ninth circuit, Barber would get around Wilson for the runner up spot. Wilson would then have to fend for his third spot, as Barnett tr

Jeff Bland Jr. of Bloomington, Indiana will admit to never running very good at Brownstown Speedway. But now he has a new case to present, as he took home his first career feature win at the 1/4 dirt oval. A stellar field of 54 cars would sign in for the Modified activities with the action as follows. After a botched start, the field would take the green flag with Alan Magner leading the field through lap number one. Magner would then have to contend with the rim riding Brent Londeree, in his brand new Pierce Chassis, for the point. The racing would come to a slowdown as the yellow waved for Al Flick, Adam Sasser, Gary Trammell, and Ralph Groomer all in turn two. When the green flag waved, Magner would hold the lead to hisself, as Londeree and Lee Hobbs would battle it out for the second position. As the front three made their way out of turn two on lap five, Magner seemed to slip a little, allowing Londeree and Hobbs to get by. With Londeree now at the point, Hobbs would have to contend with Bland, as Bland

Clifton Barron found himself in victory lane after a mid race mishap took out the top three cars in the Bomber Feature at the Brownstown Speedway. The 15 lap main event started with a yellow as JJ Pfeiffer looped his mount on the start. On the complete restart, Jason Combs led the field around to complete lap number one with Matt Cummings in tow. Behind them, a battle for the third position would commence between Mike Seal and Darrell Burton. Burton would take control of the third position, moving Seal back to fourth. Seal was not done, however, as he would battle back to the outside of Burton, and take the position back. Back up front, Cummings would make a move on lap six for the lead on Combs. The front two cars would battle for the lead until lap nine, when contact was made between the two cars sending them both around in turn one. The third place running car of Burton was also involved as he got collected in the mayhem. So with Combs, Cummings, and Burton all at the tail end of the field, the lead would
