Close Finishes At Humboldt Speedway

It was a photo finish for the Pure Stock A Main! Dayton Sutterby Finishline Photography

by Scott Lee Stewart – After raining out last weekend, beautiful weather and the promise of action packed both the stands and the pits at “The Hummer”. No one left disappointed.

Pure Stock led off the evenings feature action; Derek Michael looked strong early, then broke. So, Tyler Kidwell took the lead, and for all practical purposes appeared ready to take home yet another trophy. Levi Phillips, however, had other ideas. Waiting paitently behind Kidwell, maintaining pressure, Phillips made a daring last lap charge that netted him the feature win by mere inches at the flag. With Kidwell second, third place went to Mike Churning, while Jared Hayden and Timothy Beth rounded out the top five.

19 B-Mods started the feature, and even after a Talledaga style wreck on the back
straight away thinned the field, intense racing insued. Trevor “The Real Deal” Hunt
paced the field for the win. Tim VanGotten dueled with Scott Drake as they finished
second and third respectively. Riley Whitworth captured fourth, while Jimmie Davis
finished fifth.

As an added bounus for fans, the Midwest Outlaw Vintage Racers paid a visit as
well. That feature was won by Zac Simmons, driving a former late model chassis
draped with an awesome looking Studebaker body from somewhere in the 50’s.

In Factory Stock, Scott Stuart was, once again, the winner. Runner up spot changed
hands numerous times, before being claimed by David Matlock. From deep in the field,
Derrek Wilson finished third, Nick Fritch took fourth, and Clint Drake was fifth.

Finally, in USRA Modified action, Johnny Bone, Jr. continued his winning ways with
another feature win. The hotly contested runner up spot featured an epic battle hard
won by John Allen over Jess Folk, Jr. Starting 18th in the field, Al Purkey provided
a driving clinic second to none on his way to fourth. Travis Smith finished fifth.

Lots more ahead at “The Hummer”, including the return of USMTS in two weeks, A
$4000.00 to win powerhouse show.
