Topeka, KS – As the end of June set in on the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown, racers and fans were greeted with cooler than normal temperatures. The racers replied with hot racing action all night long at Heartland Park Topeka’s Dirt Track during Casey’s General Store Night at the races.


In the Washburn Tech Modified division Darron Fuqua kept up his torrid 2013 pace with his 7th win of the season.

After a runner-up finish in his heat race, Fuqua started in the 2nd row for the A Main. It didn’t take long for the Mayetta driver to get to the front of the field and hold on for the victory. The race would go without a caution and it would dash any hopes of the competition catching the hottest driver at HPT.

The win would help extend Fuqua’s point lead in the class and with 12 races left on the schedule his record of 11 wins in a single season could be in jeopardy!

Josh Everhart had a strong run on the night finishing in the 2nd spot, Jared Rogers celebrated his best finish of the season in 3rd, 4th was Steven Bowers Jr. who started 7th and rounding out the top 5 was the opening night winner, Dalton Kirk.

In 2010 Brian Murphy had the White Line CDL Training B Mods by the tail. He won multiple features that season and went on to the track championship.


Fast forward to 2013, Murphy is still racing in the division, but this year, due to spending some family time, he got a late start on the season. The late start might have given him a boost of energy. Over the last few races Murphy has been in contention for a win, but watched as mechanical problems or bad timing got in the way.

Saturday night at Heartland Park it was Murphy’s night once again as he picked up the feature win.

The night started off well for Murphy he started 4th in his heat and won it and he would start 4th in the feature on his way to win #1. Murphy worked his way to the top spot and then held on as a field of heavy hitters would push him for the 15 laps of the A Main.

Lance Lincoln, another former champ, finished in 2nd, Chase Austin had his highest finish of the season in 3rd, 4th went to a hard charging Jake Richards, who started 13th in the feature and Dustin Thulin would follow Richards through the field to finish 5th after starting 12th.

The first main event of the night was the Casey’s General Store Pure Stocks. Extra incentive was placed on this feature in the form of Casey’s Gift Cards to the top 3 finishers.


Pure Stocks have been steadily building their reputation at HPT. Each and every week they fill their field with 20 or more cars and they put on some of the closest racing action you will see in the Midwest. This week was no exception.

Byron Glotzbach raced his way to a win about 3 weeks ago and after Saturday night he can now boast that he is a multiple feature winner in 2013!

Glotzbach started 7th in the main event, but one by one he worked his way up through the field he was set on staying at the front. He would battle with Robert Garst for the top spot. The win wasn’t the biggest reward of the night for Glotzbach. With the win, Glotzbach has closed the points gap between he and Tyler Garst. Garst, who won the 1st 3 races of the season only leads the points by 12 over Glotzbach. The Pure Stocks are proving to be the most exciting class at HPT.

Finishing in the runner-up spot was Robert Garst, 3rd went to AJ Christian and it was the ‘son and father’ tandem of Randy and Ron Kohn rounding out the top 5 in 4th and 5th.

It was just a week ago that Zach Henery drove to victory lane for the 1st time in 2013 in the Ferrellgas Stock Car division. This week Henery did it once again as he picked up his 2nd feature win of the season in consecutive weeks, but not after some controversy.


Clint Hedge would take the checkered flag first, but in post-race tech inspection he would be deemed illegal and disqualified for the evenings event.

Henery started off the evening with a heat race win, but a youngster in the crowd pulled a 3 row invert ball for the feature lineup and this meant that Henery would start outside of row number 3 in the big race.

As he has his car firing on all cylinders right now, it took little time for Henery to drive to the front of the field. Henery, who has moved into 2nd place in the point standings, would go on to the win.

Russ Moyer finished in the runner-up position, an ever improving Dustin Sievers finished 3rd, James King started in 4th and finished in 4th and Tyson Young was a hard charger going from 9th to 5th in the A Main.

The Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown hosts it’s 1st special event of the 2013 season next Saturday night. The Steve Bowers Sr. Memorial will offer the drivers of HPT a chance at extra cash and bragging rights.
