Kicking off the night of fun filled exciting racing action were the always fast E-Modifieds. Young Nicholas Carpenter #33 would jump to the early lead and set the pace for the rest to follow as he and heat race winner Matthew Lance #12x would battle for the front. Lance would try high and low but could not find a way around until a late race caution would bunch the field. On the restart the racing was hot and heavy as Chris Dishong #41 would charge past the two front runners and never look back, claiming victory number eight on the 2015 racing season. Carpenter would challenge Dishong every lap to the finish coming up a little short and placing second on the night. Lance would race his way to third with Justin Asher #74 fourth. Back to the track, last year’s E-Mod Track Champion Kit Bailey #77 would round out the nights top five. Other heat race winners were Kyle Henning #1 and Matt Dorssom #3d.

Hobby Stock was in fine form taking to the cage next and putting on a great show for the fans. Wayne Brooke #18 would lead early holding off the challenges of Lonnie Myers #62 as the two would race side by side lap after lap. As these two battled for the lead another contender would emerge and make his move at the right time and charge to the lead with one lap left in the feature. Josh Munsen #19 would again work his magic late in the race and pick up the feature win. Brooke would slip to second with the very fast Myers third. Heat race winner Tobin Bartlett #28 would hold off the challenge of Chris Kiehl #28k to finish fourth with Kiehl fifth.

Great racing action continued as the Street Stocks would enter the Cage and do battle. Anthony Robertson #82m would use an outside row one starting position to his advantage and never look back leading every lap of the feature as the race would go caution free. Robertson would stand tall in victory lane with his family and celebrate the win. Current point leader Brandon Crockett #98 would race his way to finish second holding Daniel King #24k to place third. Heat race winner Alvie Christofferson #22a would finish fourth holding off the hard charge of Brad Whitney #X9 whom would finish fifth on the night.

B-Modifieds would take the cage by storm as we would witness two and three wide racing on the fast and smooth high banked surface. Rodney Schweizer #74 and Austin Charles #81 would swap the lead in the early stages of the race with Charles taking over the lead. A mid race caution would bunch the field with contact made on the restart among the front runners with Schweizer taking the point. Schweizer’s lead was short lived as Truman Asher #73 would use the extreme low line to take over the top spot and on to victory. Heat race winner Cody Brill #96 would recover from an early race spin cycle to charge back to a solid second place showing. One time leader Schweizer would fade to third with Aaron Myers #14 finishing in the fourth spot. Tyson Lanfermann #47 would race a borrowed car to a solid fifth place finish. Other heat race winner was Matt Dorssom #3d who would develop mechanical issues taking him for contention.

Kids Mod would see the familiar face of Nicholas Carpenter #33 sweep the night winning both heat race and feature event. Hayden Hinton #36h would finish in the second spot with Dakota Earls #15e third and Cade Richards #1R fourth.

Sport Compact would prove to be the Best in Show on this night at Atchison County Raceway as they would see only one caution. David Miller III #55 would get the early lead and hold off all challengers until the caution flag would fly. On the restart heat race winner John Willard #1/2cr would use the high side and take the lead and the checkers picking up the feature win. James Lemke #17 would also move past Miller and place second with William Wells #90 third. Josh Conrad #08 would hold off other heat race winner Will Guthrie #78 at the line claiming fourth leaving Guthrie to fifth. Being hailed as Best of Show, the 9th finishing position was drawn with Chuck Warman #45c picking up the bonus money.

Cageman Series Obstacle Course racing would complete the night of racing action. With a rolling green flag start the racers charge around the track with Brandon Leach #06 in the F150 pickup truck taking the early lead. When it appeared Leach would be the truck to beat, both front wheels came off the truck ending his night and dreams of victory. Pete Koch #4 would inherit the lead and battle Brad Simpson #30 as the two would go wheel to wheel. Koch would fade with Simpson taking the point. Cameron Seager #62 would spin early in the feature but charge back to the front and have contact with Simpson taking the lead and victory in the Cageman Series Race. Koch would battle back and get by Simpson to place second moving Simpson to third. Current point leader Ryan Chalfant #41 would race his Gran Torino to fourth with Leach fifth.

Atchison County Raceway would like to thank all the fans and drivers for their support and will see everyone next Friday night for more great acing action!
