Davis Tops Mods, 3rd Win For Wahwahsuck, Whitehead Reaches A Career First & Henery Continues Domination of Pure Stocks at HPT.Com Speedway

 


Topeka, KS - Ninety-seven cars pulled in to HPT.Com Speedway on Saturday night. By the end of the night all the drivers that were in competition put on yet another great show for the fans.

In the Modified division Kerry Davis scored his 2nd win of the season.

The early portion of the feature event was dominated by the yellow flag, but once the Modifieds got going it was one of the better races of the season.

Davis jumped out to the early lead running the bottom of the race surface. The 2nd place car of Grant Junghans moved to the top side of the track. As the two cars went back and forth, Junghans would take the lead from Davis.

As Junghans moved to the top spot, he also moved his line on the speedway. Instead of running the extreme high line, he moved down on the bottom of the track. He was hoping to that Davis would stay on the bottom as well. Unfortunately for Junghans, Davis didn't stay on the bottom.

Just as Junghans had done earlier in the night, Davis went up to the high side of the race track and found some bite. All night long the surface at HPT.Com Speedway was in great shape. Late in the race the high side had some moisture for any driver that wanted to test their will and driving ability on the very edge. Davis was up to the task.

Davis would go door-to-door with the leader, Junghans, and eventually make the pass. He would hold the lead to the finish of the race. Davis would hold off the final challenge of the night and come to the checkered flag for his 2nd win of the 2011 season.

Finishing in 3rd was Tom Grist, Jay Bailey turned in his best effort of the season in 4th and Justin Johnson struggled through the night and managed to sneak out a top 5 finish in 5th.

The storyline coming into the Factory Stock feature event had to do with the points battle between Steve Herrick and Dave Samuels. In the end it was Gerald Wahwahsuck stealing the show.

At the drop of the green flag Lucas Conley sprinted out to the early lead. The lead would be short lived as Wahwahsuck put a power move on Conley to take over the lead.

It was all Wahwahsuck from there as he would lead every lap once he pulled into the top spot. Several yellow flags couldn't dethrone Wahwahsuck. Each time his lead would be wiped out, he would gain it right back after the restart. The win was his 3rd on the season.

The points battle in the Factory Stock division added an additional advantage to the leader Dave Samuels. Samuels came into the night with an 18 point advantage over Herrick. Samuels would finish 2nd in the feature, while Herrick came home in the 3rd position. The finish would add a couple more points to the lead of Samuels.

Jim Powell Jr. put together a good performance finishing in the 4th position and Lucas Conley, the early leader, held on to finish in the 5th position.

Dylan Whitehead has had a strong run in his rookie season at HPT.Com Speedway in the B Mod division. Coming into Saturday night, he has been very competitive and finished in the top 5 numerous times. The only thing missing on the season was a trip to victory lane. He can now mark that off of his list.

It was another yellow filled night in the B Mods. Whitehead would have to outlast everyone to take the win. Late in the race Brian Murphy, last year's track champion, had taken the lead, but while under yellow it was discovered that Murphy had a left rear flat and was sent in to change it. This would hand the lead back to Whitehead.

When the green flag flew on the restart, so did Whitehead. He stayed out in front of the field on the way to his 1st win in the B Mod division.

Steven Goodman drove from the 21st starting spot to finish 2nd, Marty Grist was another big mover going from 13th to 3rd, finishing 4th was Rich Boyden and rounding out the top 5 was a hard charging Brandon Jones.

Zach Henery continued his domination of the Pure Stock class. Saturday night was Henery's 5th consecutive win and 15th victory on the season. Every time the Pure Stocks come out for a feature event, Henery wins 75% of the time.

Saturday night was no different than most. AJ Christian pulled out to the early lead. Henery would have to work his way through the traffic before getting to Christian.

As the two met at the front of the field. Henery would work his way by the leader, Christian. Once at the top spot it was check out time for Henery.

Henery would speed away from the field and take the win. The victory also padded his points lead in the class and with only two races to go on the season it looks as if his goal of a championship is firmly in hand.

Randy Kohn rebounded from some sub par performances to finish 2nd, 3rd was Tyler Hinrichs, Mitch Schroer turned in a fine performance in 4th and Darren Davenport rounded out the top 5.

The 20th race in the schedule for the BriggsAuto.Com Super Saturday Showdown Series will be next Saturday night, Sept. 17. Only two races remain for points to be gained.

Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m., hot laps are at 6:15 p.m. and the races go green at 7:00 p.m.
