Allen Soars To Victory At Humboldt

humboldt_speedway_logoBy Scott L. Stewart – Unique in the world of racing is “The Enduro”, a race where, basically, you take a running automobile, take out the glass and put in a roll cage, line up with a bunch of other similar cars, and go for it. It’s unique because if you crash, break down, whatever on the track, you become another challenge to other racers because you stay where you are at, unless your in real danger, and the track becomes an obstacle course. Speed is important, but driving skill and durability are king.

Before June 26th, Humboldt Speedway had never hosted an Enduro. It was a different experience for both fans and officials. Everyone lines up, comes to a dead stop, and goes from there. At the end of 50 laps, it was Derrek Wilson, ace Pure Stock driver, who will be forever in the record books as Humboldt Speedway’s first ever Enduro race winner. Runner up was Jeremy Wilson, Scott Stuart was third, Tim VanGotten fourth, and Rick Mueller fifth.

The Enduro capped a full night of racing action at The Hummer, a night which saw Mike Churning claim his fourth feature win of the season in Pure Stock . Wayne Johnson mounted a late race charge for the lead, but ended second, Trever Vann was third. Fourth went to Joey DeCoster, with Mitch Coulter fifth.

Long time USRA Modified ace John Allen would not be denied in this weeks feature, putting on a clinical display of speed and poise on his way to victory lane. Justin Johnson claimed runner up, Jim Body third. Chase Sigg came from deep in the 18 car field to claim fourth, edging fifth place Chase Domer at the line.

B-Mod phenom Jake Richards came from Kansas City to take the main event win on Friday night. After a several week hiatus, Lucas Issacs returned to a strong second, with Tyler Kidwell, Brian McGowen fourth and Dakota Foster fifth.

Tyler Davis remains the king of Sport Compact, racking up still another feature win. Ken Colston debuted in this division with a second, Kourtney Letterman was third, Aaron Farwell fourth, and Tevyn James fifth.

Stock Car Division had the night off..

Friday, July third at The Hummer will be hot: $2,000.00 to win in USRA Modified, $500.00 to win in B-Mod, plus Stock car and Pure Stock. Sport Compacts take a bye week. Best of all, a massive fireworks display after the races. $13 admission for adults, $5 for the kids.
