Wild Night Producers Excitement On And Off The Track!

Topeka, KS - Nothing lasts forever. That is a statement that can be said from time to time. In the Washburn Tech Modified division, Darron Fuqua had not lost a race since June 25, 2011.

Saturday night that streak came to a close. Steven Bowers Jr. scored an upset, as he drove to victory lane.

The feature event started out with Kerry Davis taking the top spot. After a couple of yellows, Davis, maintained the lead. At the front of the pack he would hold on until his engine would expire heading into turn 1.

Fuqua would take the point from this position and it looked as if win #11 was on the way, but somebody forgot to tell Bowers this tidbit of information.

Bowers was a man on a mission Saturday night. Following Fuqua to the front of the field he saw his chance to take over the lead. Working the high line on the track he would overtake Fuqua. Once at the front of the field, Bowers, a 3x feature winner in 2011, would race his way to win #4 on the season.

Josh Everhart had a solid run. He battled in the top 3 most of the night and wound up with a runner-up finish.

Fuqua would slip to 3rd by the end of the feature.

Ryan Phillips and Chris Morgan duked it out with one another late in the race. Phillips, the former Modified Track Champion, finished 4th and Morgan would round out the top 5 in 5th.

The Casey's General Store Pure Stock Feature displayed the talent of driver, who is having arguably one of the best individual seasons ever at HPT.Com Speedway, Zach Henery.

Saturday night, Henery drove his way to win #12 on the season. A lot of drivers would be happy just to reach victory lane once in a season, let alone 12 times!

At the drop of the green flag, Henery had to work his way through the field. Due to the inversion for the feature event he started inside the 4th row.

Sandy Tanner would prevail at the front while Henery was working his way around traffic. In a matter of a few laps, Henery found his way to Tanner's back bumper. A pass would put him at the front of the field and from there he extended his lead after each lap.

The lead would get larger and larger until a late race yellow bunched up the competitors. On the restart Henery received pressure from Darron Davenport. The two would stay close on the speedway, but Henery would prevail for win #12.

Davenport had one of his best finishes of the season in 2nd, coming in 3rd was Tyler Hinrichs, 4th went to the early leader Sandy Tanner and AJ Christian finished with a top 5 in 5th.

In the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Factory Stock A Feature the motto might have been; "If at first you don't succeed, try ,try again!"

Dave Samuels has been on a roll lately in the Factory Stock division. In 2011 he has the most wins in the class with 7, but he isn't the points leader, he is still chasing Steve Herrick for that title. After Saturday night he can add another win to his total to make it 8 on the year and he chipped away ever so slightly at that points lead.

Fans might have been surprised to see Samuels back in victory lane. Early in the night, the two time consecutive feature winner, got caught up in an early yellow that would put him in the back of the field.

Twenty-two cars would start the main event and being at the end of that long long could have been the kiss of death for Samuels, but he would use it as motivation.

Yellow flags and moving past the competition would allow Samuels to move to the front of the field. Jeff MIller and Steve Herrick were at the front of the field for most of the night. The two would battle it out, but it was Samuels that kept coming to the front.

Riding the high line on the speedway, Samuels would go around both Herrick and Miller on his way to win #8 on the season.

Herrick would help his own cause for the points championship by finishing 2nd, Miller finished 3rd, 4th went to a consistent James King and the Pure Stock feature winner, Zach Henery, gathered a top 5 in 5th.

Many fans were confused with the White Line CDL Training B Mod main event.

The night started out with a great 6 lap run to open the feature event, but things got a little hairy after that. Several yellows flag laps surrounded the next couple of green flag laps.

This prompted Race Director, Rick Reaves to put a stop to the feature. He did this by pulling all the B Mods to the infield. The intent was to finish the race after the conclusion of two other features.

Due to a driver revolt, while sitting in the infield, the race would never restart. Mike HIgley would be declared the winner, as he was leading the last completed green flag lap on the race track.

Jeremy Chambers finished 2nd, 3rd went to the points leader, Dalton Kirk, 4th was Brian Murphy and rounding out the top 5 was John Grist.

The BriggsAuto.Com Super Saturday Showdown Series will continue next Saturday night with race #18 on the season. Class points championships are coming down to the wire and fans won't want to miss a minute of the racing action!

Saturday night the spectator gates open up at 6 p.m., hot laps will start at 6:45 p.m. and the racing goes green at 7:30 p.m.

Adult ticket prices are $10 and children 12 and under are just $5.00.
