Phillips, Londeree, Burton Win Features in Memory of Denny Bailey.
Last Saturday night's racing action was dedicated to the memory of the late Denny Bailey. Dan Sturgeon was kind enough to have the #24 on his car for the evening's event with Denny's name in the numbers. Dan also went on to win a special dash for cash for drivers who were picked by the Bailey family of drivers that were related to or friends of Denny.
Borrowing a phrase heard from one of Dick Phillips' pit members in victory lane, "Dick finally got it done" last night and put the #11 car in victory lane for the Late Model division. Phillips and Mark Barber started on the front row together, but on the green, Phillips pulled out ahead of Barber. Barber then pulled up and got his nose ahead, but Phillips wouldn't let up and he took the lead back. Steve Barnett, who was driving the #20 Saturday night at Brownstown, instead of his regular #89, poked his nose into the mix a couple of times and made it a three way battle. The feature had three cautions, which made for a heated battle everytime the pack would tighten up.
Brent Londeree was the man standing in victory lane after the checkered flag for the UMP Modified division. Broc Burton also put on a great show, just like he did two weeks ago. After a battle up front, a mishap on the track put Burton in a fifth place finishing spot for the night. Winner of the Bailey family sponsored dash for cash for the Modifieds was Bubba Woods.
Every week, the Bomber division goes on the track and races their hearts out and gives the fans some very exciting racing. This week was no different than any other. The beginning of the feature was a toss up between five drivers, and they fought it out all the way to the end. Darrell Burton got his 10B car out front and held on for the win. Winner of the Bailey family sponsored dash for cash for the Bomber division was Steven Godsey.
The dash for cash winners received a cash prize, along with a plaque, engraved, "In Memory of Denny Bailey" and the date of the race.
