Topeka, KS – Finally, Mother Nature decided to give the racers, fans and staff a break at Heartland Park.

 

Saturday night was a full night of racing for all in attendance. Makeup features were completed for the B Mods, Stock Cars and Modifieds and then an entire complete show raced afterwards.

In the White Line CDL Training B Mod makeup feature Dustin Thulin used some late race heroics to get the first win of the night. Lucas Isaacs, a multiple feature winner at HPT, lead most of the way in the early feature. A late race yellow would set up a green white checkered. As the green came out and the racing resumed, Thulin was able to dive to the bottom and slide past Isaacs for the win. Isaacs would hold on for 2nd, last years champ, Ethan Isaac, finished 3rd, 4th went to Brian Murphy and Dave Samuels rounded out the top 5.

The 2nd feature of the night didn’t have the last lap action that the 1st feature did. Ethan Isaacs made sure that there wouldn’t be any doubt who the winner would be as he roared to his 2nd win of the season. Isaacs had engine problems during the feature. A plug wire came off his engine and he was only running on 7 cylinders, but it was more than enough for Isaacs as he gained another big win. Jason Billups finished in the runner-up spot, celebrating his best run of the season in 3rd was John Grist, 4th went to Bryan Hey and Lucas Isaacs came home in 5th.

 

Darron Fuqua’s streak of consecutive wins came to an end during the Washburn Tech Modified makeup feature. Fuqua started in the 19th position and could only make it to the 7th spot after being involved in an early yellow. A career 1st was celebrated as Jay Bailey garnered his 1st win in a Modified in the makeup feature. Bailey, who started on the front row, jumped to the front of the field and held on for 25 laps to gain his milestone memory. Luke Driskell finished in 2nd, 3rd was Kyle Covert, Josh Henery had a great run finishing in 4th and Kerry Davis finished in the 5th position.

A new streak emerged in the 2nd Modified feature of the night. Darron Fuqua won his heat earlier in the night and on the redraw came away with the pole position. As the green flag dropped Fuqua began his domination of the feature. He would lead all 25 laps of the feature and would storm to his 6th win in 8 races. It was a great battle for 2nd as Tyler Schmidt out ran Tad Davis for the runner-up spot, Robert Shepard finished 4th and Kerry Davis would land in 5th for the 2nd straight race after starting in the 10th position.

 

It was a strong duel in the makeup feature for the Ferrellgas Stock Cars. Steve Herrick, a multiple feature winner in 2013, decided to add another victory to his resume. Herrick held off some stout competition on the way to the win. Clint Hedge finished 2nd, Tyson Young celebrated a 3rd place finish, 4th went to Zach Henery and 5th was James King.

Last year’s champ, Terry Schmidt, looked strong in the early going of the 2nd feature for the Stock Cars. Schmidt jumped to the lead, but Zach Henery was quick to move in the 2nd spot. As Schmidt had a big lead, Henery would chip away and pull up to the back bumper of Schmidt. As the two drivers but on a show for the fans, Henery made his move underneath Schmidt and took the top spot. Henery, who has already won in 2013, would hold on as a late charging, Clint Hedge, would finish in the 2nd spot. Dustin Sievers had a strong run finishing in 3rd, James King continued with his 2nd top 5 of the night in 4th and Steve Herrick followed up a win by coming home in 5th.

The only class that didn’t get to have double features were the Casey’s General Store Pure Stocks. They wouldn’t disappoint the fans as their feature was one of the most exciting of the night. AJ Christian would forge his way to the early lead, but a large pack of 11 cars were ready to pounce on the leader at any moment. As Christian held the top spot, Byron Glotzbach and Tyler Hinrichs would give him fits as they hounded him for the entire race. Great racing action could be seen all over the track as drivers were battling for position. In the end Hinrichs would go by Christian for the top spot and his 1st win of the season. Glotzbach was also able to get by Christian and finish 2nd, 3rd went to Christian, 4th was Darren Davenport and the previous feature winner, David McDonald, finished 5th.

 

Racing action for the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown will continue next week, June 29. For more information on Heartland Park Topeka, visit the on the World Wide Web at www.hpt.com.
