SALINA, Kan. — Temperatures soared to around 100 degrees on Friday June 14, 2013 as the Salina Speedway continued it’s regular season program. The action on the track was just as hot, with the night ending with a first time accomplishment for a former champion.

Last year’s IMCA Stock Car champion, Austin Carter, moved into the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Northern SportMod division at season’s end. That move culminated on Friday night as Carter picked up his first career win in the division after a spirited duel with fellow competitors. Fred Traskowsky made a daring charge into turn one to take the lead briefly before Carter took over and out paced Traskowsky, Matthew Crowell, and Tyler Frye to the checkered flag. Seth Schroer, Crowell, and Jeremy Sigler won the heat races.

The night’s “return to victory lane” theme kicked off with the Auto House Mod Lite feature, the first on to the track. Justin Kinderknecht set out on a torrid pace to take his first win of the season and closing the gap on points leader Corbin Pickerill. Chris Unruh turned in a solid performance to finish second, with Danny Morrison Jr. third, and Pickerill fourth. Brandon Gray and Morrison won the heat races.

Two races later another driver notched his first win of the season in the Belleville Motorsports IMCA Modified division. Danny Morrison Jr., who already had a podium finish on the evening in the Mod Lite, held off an always strong Joe Cleveland to land in Victory Lane. Cleveland settled for second with Corey Lagroon third and Brandon Blochlinger fourth. Blochlinger and Brian Knoell won the heat races.

Mike Traskowsky made a return visit to victory lane in the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks. Traskowsky methodically picked off the rest of the top five en route to the win. Pete Beaumont finished second, with Aaron McBride third, and GW Fuller fourth. Beaumont, Fuller, and Tommy Fose were the heat winners.

The Friesen Chevrolet Late Models presented by M&H Motors featured the same winner for the second week in a row. Delbert Smith caught and passed Justin Kinderknecht to take home the win with Kinderknecht second, Chris Kratzer third, and Jimmy Segraves fourth. Segraves and Daniel Smith won the heat races.

This upcoming Friday night June 21 features Merchant’s Night at the Salina Speedway with area businesses giving away tickets to their customers. In action will be the return of the Coors Light Street Stocks, along with the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks, T&R Dirt Construction Mini Stocks, Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Northern SportMods, and Belleville Motorsports IMCA Modifieds. Race is set for 8:00PM.
