Fuqua Gest Win #6, Henery Gets Win #8, Herrick Gets Win #4 & Murphy Picks Off First Win of 2011 At HPT.Com Speedway


Topeka, KS - At times on Saturday night, it almost felt like there was a full moon. It was hard to say whether there was one or not, the cloud cover concealed it. The stuff that happened on the track made it feel like their was a full moon.

Heartland Park Topeka ushered in the holiday weekend with their own patriotic celebration and it was a fun night for all in attendance. Four drivers, in particular, had a great evening as they picked up wins in each of the 4 divisions.

Darron Fuqua has to be the hottest driver at HPT.Com Speedway. In the ultra-competitive modified field, Fuqa has raced his way to 5 wins on the season, that was until tonight. Fuqua rolled to the victory tonight and the win total climbed to 6 on the season.

The modified feature didn't get off to a very good start, but once they got going it turned into a good show. Fuqua battled his way to the front after starting in the 5th row. As he got to the lead, it seemed as if the race would never end. Fuqua stayed patient, working his way through all the yellow flag situations on Saturday night.

A total of 6 wins have come by the hands of Fuqua. The win also put Fuqua in a tie with Cody Agler in the Modified points standings.

Former feature winner, Josh Everhart finished in the 2nd position, Whitey Folk finished in the 3rd position, 4th went to Chris Morgan and rounding out the top 5 was Kyle Covert.

Each week the factory stock class turns in a spectacular race. This week they were no different than any of the other classes.

Last week's winner, Gerald Wahwahsuck, found himself at the point position. Lap after lap it looked as if, Wahwahsuck was going to put down another victory.

Unfortunately for Wahwahsuck, Steve Herrick had other plans. Herric worked his way to the front after starting mid pack. Once he got to the top spot, he rode it out until he found a place where he could pounce. He found it and Herrick motored right by Wahwahsuck.

A total of 5 cars were battling it out to the end. Dave Samuels wound up 2nd, 3rd went to Tyson Young, 4th was Zach Henery and rounding out the top 5 was, James King.

It was another full field of cars for the B Modified division. 31 cars checked in on the night and each was ready to take their turn at the head of the table. After the night was over, it was the former track champion, Brian Murphy, holding off all racers to the finish line.

Murphy, who has been consistent all year long, had yet to win a feature event prior to tonight. From the drop of the green flag it was all Murphy's night, as he went on to the win.

Dalton Kirk, the wonder boy from Gardner, finished 2nd, finishing in 3rd place was Mike Higley, Darren Robinson celebrated his best finish in 4th and finishing in the 5th position on the night was Richard Prochnow.

In the hobby stock feature, it was Zach Henery dominating on the night as he picked up win #8 on the season. It wasn't without a battle. Henery had to shake a few pure stocks in order to take home the win.

Jimmy Millard finished in the 2nd spot, Darren Davenport had a solid outing finishing in 3rd. 4th was the 2nd place in points, AJ Christian and rolling in another top 5 finish was the #17 of Randy Kohn.
