Jeremy Hines Takes ILMS Opener
By Chris Nunn
Jeremy Hines and Marty O'Neal led the field to the green in the ILMS feature event, with the caution flying before a lap was complete as Alan Magner spun in turn three. On the restart, Hines took the lead down the backchute and led lap one ahead of O'Neal and Steve Godsey. With four laps in the books, Hines had stretched his lead to a half straightaway over O'Neal before the caution flew for Mason Covey who had spun in turn two. Hines led the field to the restart, as Godsey moved around O'Neal for second. Behind them, Shannon Reed and Mark Barber dueled for the fourth position on lap seven, with Barber grabbing the spot. Hines began the lapping process on lap ten, putting the lapped car of Rick Robinson between he and Godsey. O'Neal took the second spot from Godsey on lap 11 while maneuvering through the lapped traffic. At the halfway point, it was Hines, O'Neal, Godsey, Barber, and Reed completing the top five. By lap 17, Hines held a straightaway lead over O'Neal. With five laps to go, there were two lapped cars between Hines and O'Neal. With two laps remaining, it was all Hines as he held his full straightaway advantage over O'Neal to the checkers. O'Neal, Godsey, Barber, and Reed completed the top five.
Devin Gilpin and John Demoss made up the front row for the 25 lap UMP Modified feature with Gilpin leading lap one over Earl Plessinger. Plessinger moved to the high side to challenge Gilpin for the lead on lap three, before the caution flew in turn four for Larry Booher. On the restart, Demos took second away from Plessinger and moved to the outside of Gilpin to challenge for the lead. Demoss took the lead on lap four by a half car length. Derek Groomer nabbed the second spot on lap seven, and then worked to the lowside to challenge Demoss for the lead on lap eight. Groomer took the lead by a nose on lap nine, as Clint Demoss moved around Gilpin for third. At the halfway point it was Groomer, John Demoss, Clint Demoss, Plessinger, and Gilpin completing the top five. With ten laps to go, Groomer held almost a half straight lead over John Demoss, who himself had a half straight advantage over Clint Demoss in third. As the laps clicked down, Groomer continued to hold a half straight lead over John Demoss and Clint Demoss. Nothing would be able to stop Groomer as he picked up his second win of the season at Brownstown over John Demoss, Clint Demoss, Earl Plessinger, and Matt Boknecht.
Tom Ault and Rick Gumm led the field to the green in the Super Stock feature with Ault leading lap one over Gumm and Jason Combs. Ault held a three car advantage over Gumm as the field completed lap five. Behind them, Jason Thomas and Troy Clark battled for the fourth position. Troy Clark moved past both cars and took the third spot from Combs. Clark then moved into battle Gumm for the second spot on lap ten. Clark took the second spot officially from Gumm and then set his sights on Ault in front. At the halfway point it was Ault, Clark, Gumm, Jason Hehman, and Combs completing the top ten. Hehman moved past Gumm for the third spot, bringing Combs with him to fourth. Clark closed in on Ault with seven laps to go, and moved within a car length of Ault for the lead. As the laps clicked off, Ault held steady and was able to actually pull away from Clark at the checkers. Rounding out the top five were Clark, Hehman, Combs, and Hines.
CJ Leary won the UMRA Tq feature event. Leary and Jason Goff were the heat race winners.
