Topeka, KS – After Mother Nature unleashed her wrath on the racers and fans at Heartland Park Topeka's Dirt Track, she finally gave them a beautiful night last Saturday night. On an extremely cool night in July the only heat to be found came from the racing action on the track.

 

All four weekly classes put on a great show last weekend. The Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown only has 8 points races remaining for the 2013 season and that means the racing action is only going to get better as the season winds down. Saturday, August 3, 2013, at 7 p.m. Meals on Wheels Night will host race #13 in the series.

After 12 races this season, 26 different drivers have driven to victory lane. Fans in attendance get to see a different feature winner 54% of the time!

In the Washburn Tech Modified division it was another new driver picking up the win. Steven Bowers Jr., a former track champ at HPT, drove to his 1st win of the season and it couldn't have come at a better time. Bowers moved into 2nd place in the point standings and with only 8 races left to go, this might be the shot in the arm that he needs to win another championship.

Fireworks erupted last week when contact between the 1st and 2nd place cars took them out of the running. It was even more exciting when you find out the Kerry Davis and Darron Fuqua, who came into the night 1st and 2nd in the points, were the drivers involved. Davis, after the race, would find himself in 3rd in the points and Bowers would chip into Fuqua's 80 point advantage and move into 2nd trailing by just 52 points heading into this week.

Another driver working his way up the points ladder is last years track champion in the White Line CDL Training B Mods, Ethan Isaacs.

Last week Isaacs put a late race move on the leader, Heath Murry, to win his 3rd feature of the 2013 season.

Isaacs started slow this season, but has slowly put together 3 wins along with several top 5 finishes and it's allowed him to move from outside the top 10 to the 2nd place in points with 8 races left. Jake Richards, who has been the leader from opening night, is on top still but his lead has been trimmed to just 30 points. Richards run this season has been impressive in it's own right considering he is the leader and has yet to win a feature. It shows you how tough this B Mod division really is.

Byron Glotzbach held off Tyler Hinrichs to win his 4th Casey's General Store Pure Stock Feature of the season.

In the absence of Tyler Garst, Glotzbach took over sole possession of the points lead and AJ Christian moved into 2nd.

The racing action in this division is 2nd to none! Several cars are always in the hunt for the win, door to door action in the norm and every race seems to come down to the wire. Pure Stock racing has made it's mark at Heartland Park during the 2013 season.

Zach Henery has won a championship before at HPT in the Pure Stock division and he is currently looking for a championship in the Ferrellgas Stock Car class. He helped his own cause out last Saturday night by rolling to his 3rd win of the season, but he has some work to do.

Steve Herrick is the current points leader and he has been in this position before. It was just a few years ago he had a lead with a few races left and lost the championship to Dave Samuels. This season he is intent on keeping the advantage he has. Henery is going to make it tough on him, especially if he keeps winning.

All the divisions are looking to provide excitement down the stretch. Make sure you don't miss any of the action at Heartland Park Topeka over the final 8 races, every lap is going to be an important one!
