Tyler Garst Becoming A Winning Machine at BriggsAuto.com Speedway

Tyler Garst Becoming A Winning Machine At BriggsAuto.Com Speedway, More 

Track Champions Crowned 

By: Larry Lowrey

Topeka, KS – It was a special night at BriggsAuto.Com Speedway Saturday 
night. Ronald McDonald House Kids Night at the races ushered everyone in 
for a good cause. 

It was also another night of action packed races and it was also a night 
where two more champions were crowned. 

The Casey’s General Store Pure Stock division worked hard over the past 
month promoting the Ronald McDonald House Kids Night event. This group 
should be commended on the work they did Saturday night, as well their 
efforts leading up to the big event. 

Tyler Garst was the talk of the division when it came to the racing on the 
track. 

For the 2nd straight race it was the youngster from Topeka getting the job 
done. On the 2012 season, Garst has been smooth and fast. Several weeks he 
had to start deep in the field and made it up into the top 5. The question 
always remained that if he got to start up front could he finish there? 
Yes. 

Garst started outside the front row and proved that he could win from up 
front. He would have to hold off a hard charging AJ Christian, who started 
6th on the grid and finished 2nd. 

Saturday night was the first time back at the track for Randal 
Schiffelbein Jr., who secured his 2012 Casey’s General Store Pure Stock 
Track Championship 3 weeks ago. He didn’t get the outcome what he wanted, 
but he came home with a respectable 3rd place finish. Bryron Glotzbach had 
a good race going from 9th to 4th and coming home in 5th was Tyler 
Hinrichs. 


Steve Herrick has found his groove in the Super 8 at Forbes Landing 
Factory Stock class. Herrick has had his ups and downs this season and 
Saturday night was no exception. 

Herrick got caught up in an early altercation in the feature and had to go 
to the back of the pack. Not usually the place you want to be. It didn’t 
bother Herrick as he knew that he could drive back up through the field 
and get the win. Earlier in the season, it probably would have been a 
tough task for Herrick. Herrick was up for the task on Saturday night. He 
worked his way past the competition until he worked his way to win #3 on 
the 2012 season. 

Frank Jaynes continued his remarkable turnaround in 2012 with another 
runner-up finish, 3rd went to Eric Weyer, 4th was James King and rounding 
out the top 5 was Ron Ohrenbers. 

In the White Line CDL Training B Mods Lucas Isaacs stormed his way past 
Jeff Miller to take his 4th B Mod win of the season. 

The B Mods, once again, packed the house with competitors. 37 racers 
checked in to do battle on Saturday night. Lucas Isaacs was ready. 

Jeff Miller and Isaacs brought the field to the green flag for the feature. 

As the feature got underway it saw a few different leaders during the 
race. Brian Murhpy, a former feature winner, would spend some time up 
front before getting into the wall and moving him out of contention for 
the win. Jeff Miller also led some laps before giving way to Isaacs. As 
Isaacs got the win it solidified his spot for 2nd place in the points over 
Terry Bivins for the time being. Miller would finish the feature in 2nd. 

Ethan Isaacs has had a solid year and with his 3rd place finish on 
Saturday night, it gave him the 2012 White Line CDL Training B Mod Track 
Championship. Isaacs becomes the 2nd winner to win the championship in 
their first full season of competition. 

Jeremy Chambers roared from 17th in the A to finish 4th and finishing 5th 
was David Samuels. 


For the 3rd time this season in the Washburn Tech Modified division it was 
Josh Everhart getting the victory. Everhart last got a win about a month 
ago. On that night he proclaimed that another driver won that race, but 
Saturday night belonged to nobody but Everhart as he won going away from 
the competition. 

Bill Robison, the timeless wonder, had his best finish of the season in 
2nd, another driver, Mike Eisenhut, also celebrated his best finish of the 
season in 3rd, former track champion, Ryan Phillips, finished in the 4th 
position and Danny Barker finished in the 5th position. 

Even though he wasn’t there Darron Fuqua amassed enough points during the 
season that he also clinched his 2nd straight Washburn Tech Modified Track 
Championship at BriggsAuto.Com Speedway. Fuqua holds 131 point lead over 
2nd place Steven Bowers Jr., it’s mathematically impoossible for him to 
lose the championship with 2 races to go. Fuqua is the only driver to 
repeat as champion from 2011. 

Next week the season comes to a close as BriggsAuto.Com Speedway will host 
two races on the weekend. The regularly scheduled race for Sept. 29 is on 
the docket, but on Sunday, Sept. 30, the crew will make up a race that 
stormed out early in the season.
