Allen Wins As Fans ‘JAM THE STANDS’ At Humboldt

It was literally ‘standing room only’ as the fans packed into Humboldt Speedway on this special night! Dayton Sutterby FinishLine Photography

by Scott Lee Stewart – As we all know, without the loyal support of racing fans, our sport could not exist.

With that in mind, Humboldt Speedway’s promoters, Ron, Rhenda, and Ryan Whitworth threw the spectator gates wide open Friday night, no charge for general admission, as a way of saying “Thanks!”

To say that the night was tremendous would be an understatement. More than 3600 people packed every available seat. When asked, a surprising number of them had
never been to the Speedway before. Fans were treated to a truly great night of
racing.

John Allen used all of his considerable driving skill in winning the USRA Modified
feature, passing and being passed numerous time before settling into a comfortable
groove that lead to victory, despite intense pressure from runner up Steven Bowers,
Jr., who was actually on Allen’s back bumper at the finish line. After announcing
his retirement earlier in the season, Whitey Folk saddled up brother Jess, Jr.’s
ride and blasted from near the back of the 21 car field to claim third. Both Jessy
Willard and Scott Daniels ran strong early, before finishing fourth and fifth
respectively.

USRA B-Mod action was dominated by Tim VanGotten, as the “Hammer” wired the field
for his second win in as many weeks. Jeremy Chambers was second in the event,
followed by Jimmie Davis, Curt Drake, and Blake Kisner.

And while Scott Stuart rolled on to another feature win in Factory Stock, it was
door to door combat for second place, which was eventually captured by Steve Stuart,
essentially on the last lap. David Matlock scored third, Tim Phillips and Dusty
Marvin rounded out the fab five.

Jeremy Willard, the defending Pure stock points champion, returned to the winners
circle this week, holding off Tyler Kidwell for the win. Levi Phillips tallied the
third spot, followed by Mike Aiello and Matthew Kay. Willard alos passed a post race
engine teardown performed by tech officials.

Next week, in addition to the regular show, will be Mechanic’s Races.
