Jayhawk Classic Win To Dustin Boney For A 2nd Time!

Kansas City, KS – Everything is better the 2nd time around, or so they say. If you ask Dustin Boney he might say this too, since he just picked up his 2nd McCarthy Auto Group Jayhawk Modified Classic at Lakeside Speedway. A win that pocketed the driver a cool $5,000.

Last season when Boney announced his retirement, most fans figured it wouldn’t last that long. They were right.

To start out the 2012 season, Boney and his wife, Blythe, decided to start a parts business, Prime Racing Products and Custom Fabrication. The business has been successful from the start, but it did one thing. It kept Dustin around racing and racers. Fans knew that it wouldn’t be too long before Boney would be back behind the wheel of a Modified. It started out at Heartland Park Topeka where he would drive in a few weekly racers, his friend Darren Bennett would also get him behind the wheel and then TC Noel and his family would reunite with Boney for the Jayhawk.

Boney, thru the A Scramble on Friday night, drew the 3rd row outside starting spot for the feature event. He wasted little time trying to stay with Darron Fuqua and Brian Bolin, the 1st and 2nd place cars. Boney would slice past Cody Agler and then make his run on the leaders.

Fuqua would fend off Bolin for 12 laps at the front of the field before the only yellow of the night would come out for Ron Keith spinning in turn 1. The double file restart would set the stage for the battle at the front of the field.

Boney roared to the high side on the restart and would pressure Fuqua. At the end of the lap Boney would have the lead and would hold on to it to the finish.

Boney would build on his lead as the laps wore on. As no yellow flags came out the rest of the way his advantage would hold up to the finish.

Fuqua would duel with Bolin through the majority of the race for the 2nd and 3rd positions on the track. Fuqua would hang on for the 2nd spot and Bolin would finish in 3rd.

Johnny Bone Jr., who started in the 5th spot, fell back early in the race but was able to come back up through the field and finish in the 4th position.

Finishing 5th was John Allen after starting 13th in the feature. Allen had to start the day with a different car after having problems on night number 1.

Kerry Davis had a 4th place finish in his sites but on the last couple of laps Bone and Allen were able to get by him and push him to a 6th place finish and Aaron Marrant drove his way to a 7th place finish in the feature.

Other drivers in the top 10 were also able to rebound from problems on the first night. Chad Lyle, a former Jayhawk winner, had some handling issues that he got fixed before Saturday and finished 8th in the A Main after starting 17th, Nic Bidinger had to make an engine swap and finished 9th in the feature and Jordan Grabouski lost his brakes on the opening night and came back to qualify and finish 10th in the main event.

Forty seven cars checked back in to do battle on the 2nd night of racing. The heat races were tightly contested as were the qualifying features leading up to the A Scramble and Feature Even.

Weekly racing at Lakeside Speedway will go on hiatus this week before returning on Oct. 5th & 12th to finish out the Budweiser Season Championship.
