By Scott Stewart – The need for speed runs deep in Dylan Allen’s family, at Humboldt Speedway his grandfather Wendell, and his father, John, are already legends and household names to most fans. Now, Dylan is on his way to fame, winning his first anywhere USRA B-Mod feature Friday at “The Hummer”.

This was an interesting race to watch. By winning his heat, Allen was awarded outside pole for the feature start, from where he set a smooth and agile pace, driving away from the snarling pack behind. Meanwhile, there were times where the entire rest of the field was in contention for second and third. Starting dead last in the fourteen car field after a disastrous heat finish, Andy Bryant drove like a man possessed to move into the second slot, battling with Tim VanGotten all the way, as Allen drove away. Then, with four laps left, a yellow flag. All bets are off now, the field is nose to tail, and Bryant and VanGotten are coming on like a hurricane. Showing remarkable poise, Allen held off all comers in the final four to secure the victory. Bryant was runner up, VanGotten third, Ethan Issacs fourth, and Riley Whitworth fifth.

Out of retirement and in to Victory Lane, Whitey Folk thrilled fans with his feature win in USRA Modifieds. Travis Smith was the leader early, with Folk battling with other top five drivers for position. After wrestling his way into second, Folk set his sights squarely on the leader, bent on overcoming most of a straightaway deficit. It is hard to get close to Travis Smith when he is out in the open, yet lap after lap, Folk closed the gap, finally making a clean pass for the win. Smith claimed second, Gene Hogan was third, Jeremy Chambers fourth, and Ryan McAninch fifth.

Full size winged Sprint cars are something of a novelty at “The Hummer” so the arrival of the Oil Capital Racing Series with a field of nineteen “360” Sprints brought an added level of excitement to Friday’s event. After a few tense moment early in the race, the fans got what they came to see, as Coweta, OK driver Kade Morton set a blazing pace on his way to victory. Second went to Johnny Kent of Tulsa, Ok, while Sapulpa, Ok driver Danny Smith finished third. The lady of the event, Shayla Waddell of Oklahoma City, OK took fourth, Michael Bookout of Tulsa, OK was fifth.

After two straight weeks of unaccustomed runner up’s, Derrek Wilson was back in the winners circle of this weeks Pure Stock event. In a rare appearance, Todd Kidwell was runner up. Wayne Johnson, Sean Felkins, and Zac Simmons rounded out the “Fab Five”.

For the second week in a row, Tyler James topped the USRA Stock Car division, with David Matlock second, Patrick Kay third, Jeremy Wilson fourth, and Ken Colston fifth.

Humboldt Speedway will be closed Friday, July 25th, but will re-open the following Friday with Kids Night.
