BriggsAuto.Com Speedway Has Weird Ending

Topeka, KS – Saturday night was Kids Night at BriggsAuto.Com Speedway. All week long the temps averaged in the triple digits. Saturday was no different than any other day before, triple digits and no relief in site. Unfortunately for the fans in attendance the relief they had been looking for showed up at the end of the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Factory Stock A Main.

Early in the night, officials keeping an eye on some possible inclement weather, noticed a storm around the Salina area. As the features rolled out fans and officials noticed dark clouds on the horizon and they were coming. At the white flag of the Factory Stock feature the wind picked up and came out of the north, dropping the temperature quickly. The wind and lightning continued but all the features were completed on the night.

In the Casey’s General Store Pure Stocks it was a battle between the top 2 drivers in the point standings, Randal Schiffelbein Jr. and Jesse Shotts.

At the beginning of the feature Schiffelbein grabbed the early advantage, but Shotts kept pace at the worked through the opening laps. Schiffelbein would hold the lead for a few laps until Shotts would work his way underneath coming out of turn 4.

Once at the front of the field Shotts would hold the lead all the way to the finish. It would be his 5th win of the season in the Casey’s General Store Pure Stocks and it allowed him to close the gap on Schiffelbein’s point lead. Currently Shotts trails the leader in points by 24 after tonight’s win.

Schiffelbein finished in 2nd, Darren Davenport went from 6th to 3rd in the feature, 4th went to Tyler Garst and Byron Glotzbach drove to a 5th place finish.

The White Line CDL Training B Mods put on another great feature event tonight as Dustin Thulin got the win.

Brian Murphy looked like the Brian Murphy of old as he took the lead early. He would hold on until a yellow around lap 7 came out. On the restart Thulin put together a march that would land him at the front of the pack.

Two and three wide racing was evident all across the speedway for position. Terry Bivins and Ethan Isaacs put some pressure on Thulin, but they could never mount that one charge that could put them in the point position. Thulin would take the top spot. It was his first win of the 2012 season and it could be a shot in the arm to his confidence level.

Bivins would finish in the runner-up spot, Ethan Isaacs took in another top 5 finishing in 3rd, Lucas Isaacs went from 11th to 4th in the main and hard-charger Heath Murry went from 14th to 5th in the feature!

It was all Terry Schmidt for the 8th time this season. Schmidt rolled to a season high 8th win in the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Factory Stocks on Saturday night.

The night started off in his favor when he drew the coveted number 1 pill at the beginning of the night, he scored the heat race win and the feature lineup was to be decided heads up and that put him on the pole for the feature event.

The green flag waved a Schmidt was off and running. His car handles well and tonight’s dry slick race track needed a smooth driver and a well handling car. Lucky for Schmidt he had both.

Zach Henery gave Schmidt the best challenge of the night. On a late race restart, Henery did everything he could to stay with the leader. A couple laps in to the restart he stayed on Schmidts back bumper, but as the laps continued he fell back into 2nd place.

Schmidt, with the win, maintains the points lead in the division for another week.

Eric Weyer put together one of his best runs of the year going from 7th to 3rd, 4th went to James King and rounding the top 5 was Frank Jaynes in 5th.

As the fans were running for cover from the wind, lightning and debris, the Washburn Tech Modified feature took to the track.

Cody Agler would start up front and finish up front in the A main. Agler’s win would be his 2nd on the season and it put him into good company with Darron Fuqua and Kerry Davis as the only drivers to win more than 1 feature on the season.

While Agler was running out in front. Tyler Schmidt, Jared Rogers and Fuqua were all having a good battle for 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Schimdt and Rogers went back and forth for several laps, before Schmidt took away the 2nd spot and tried to reel in Agler. Once in 3rd Rogers couldn’t fend off the former champ, Fuqua, as he would also slip by Rogers into 3rd. The top 4 spots would remain the same to the finish of the feature.

Due to the quick change in the weather, track officials decided to cut the laps short in the feature event, as a precautionary measure.

Roudning out the top 5 in the Modified A Main was Grant Junghans.

The 12th race of the Super Saturday Showdown Series continues next Saturday, July 7.

Spectator gates will open up at 5:30 p.m., hot laps are at 6:45 p.m. and the first racing green flag flies at 7:30 p.m.
