Marty O'Neal Takes Late Model Feature,
By: Chris Nunn
Marty O'Neal and Dillan White made up the front row of the Late Model main event, with O'Neal leading lap one. Jeremy Hines moved to the second spot just before the caution flew for the cars of J.P. Hume and Joe Godsey. Scoring reverted to the last scored lap, with Mark Barber in second behind O'Neal as they took the green on the restart. Hines moved in to challege Barber for the second spot on lap three, with Barber nipping him at the line on lap four. Hines was able to make the pass stick on lap five, taking second from Barber. Behind them, Chad Stapleton and Joe Janowski battled for the fifth position on lap seven, with Janowski holding an edge on Stapleton. By lap ten, O'Neal held a full straight advantage over Hines. Behind Hines, Barber and White dueled for the second position, with White on the top, and Barber on the bottom. At the halfway point, the top five was O'Neal, Hines, White, Barber, and Janowski. Up front, O'Neal had checked out on the field, putting over a full straight advantage over Hines who was running second. With five to go, White took the second spot away from Hines while running the topside of the speedway. Hines fought back, however, and used the bottom groove to his advantage. With two to go, O'Neal was on cruise control as he took the white flag well over a full straight ahead of Hines. O'Neal easily took the checkers to claim his first win of the season over Hines, White, Barber, and Joe Godsey.
The 20 Lap UMP Modified feature event saw Richie Lex and Brad Barrow make up the front row, with the original start being brought back due to a spin involving Tony McVey and Jared Bailey. On the restart, Lex led the first lap, with Amick in tow. Lex got sideways coming out of turn two on lap two, allowing Greg Amick and Barrow around him. Lex then battled with Jacoby Hines and Matt Boknecht in a three way battle for third. Hines took the position, putting Boknecht to fourth, and Lex fifth. Up front, Amick had built a half straight lead over Barrow as the field completed lap number seven. At halfway, Amick led Barrow, Hines, Boknecht, and Ryan Thomas at the line completing the top five. Thomas had passed both Matt Bex and Richie Lex for the spot just before halfway. A battle for third started to shape up on lap 13 between Boknecht and Hines, with Boknecht taking the spot. With five to go, Barrow and Amick ran side by side for the lead, with Barrow on the bottom, and Amick running the middle of the track. With three to go, Amick opened up his advantage on Barrow to three car lengths as they came around to get two to go. The caution flag flew with one lap to go, as Cary Morris spun in turn two. A green, white, checkered finish was now set up, with Amick out front. Amick was able to hold off Barrow, and a hard charging Boknecht to pick up his second career win at Brownstown.
Brian Ballard and Cody Vanosdol led the field to the green in the UMP Pure Stock feature event with Vanosdol leading lap one ahead of Ballard. The caution flew on lap three, as Nick Adams looped his mount in turn two. On the restart, Ballard worked under Vanosdol for the lead but couldnt get around him. Ballard, Mickey Hines, and Curt Bennett ran three wide for second on lap five, with Hines taking second. Hines then ran door to door with Vanosdol for the lead on lap eight, with Hines taking the point. At halfway, Hines led Vanosdol, Ballard, Hupp, and Bennett to the line. Vanosdol shot under Hines on lap 11 to grab the lead back, using the low groove in turns one and two. Behind them, Danny Hupp moved to the fourth spot, getting around Bennett. Bennett then moved back up and made it a three way battle for third with Ballard. Ballard held on to the third position, with Bennett fourth, and Hupp fifth. With two laps to go, Vanosdol and Hines moved through lapped traffic, with Hines getting bottled up behind a lapped car. That gave Vanosdol the edge he needed to take the win ahead of Hines.
Lucas Jackson and Brad Ray led the Hornet field to the green in their main event, with Jackson leading lap one ahead of Ray. Ryan Scott moved into battle for second with Ray on lap three, with Ray holding the position. Scott moved around Ray for second on lap five, and set his sights on Jackson in the lead. The caution flew on lap six, as Dustin Foster spun off the backstretch. On the restart, Jackson led the field to the green, with Scott taking the lead from him on lap six. Jackson fought back to the outside on lap seven and retook the position. The duo raced back and forth for the lead with Scott using the bottom of the track, and Jackson up high. Behind them, Donnie Modesty had moved to the third position, getting around Ray on lap ten. On lap 13, Jackson moved to the bottomside of Scott for the lead just before the caution flew for a safety issue on the Shane Spears machine. On the restart, Jackson moved to the outside of Scott to take the lead on lap 14. Scott's night ended in a hurry on lap 16 as he suffered a flat tire, putting him out of the event. This allowed Jackson to motor on to the victory over Modesty, Ray, Cody Perry, and R.J. Perry.
Roger Snell took the lead on lap four of the PTRA Pro Truck feature event, and picked up his first win at Brownstown Speedway.
