Topeka, KS - It was another strong week of racing during the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown. Cool temps, lots of moisture and great racing action continued for yet another week of racing. This Saturday night, August 10, at 7 p.m. it will fire up one more time as only 7 races remain for the 2013 season. This means if you think last week was packed full of action and adventure, just wait as we head down the final stretch.

 

The 2013 season has seen its ups and downs. A total of 168 different drivers, in 4 divisions, have raced at HPT this season. Heartland Park's Dirt Track has changed it's characteristics over the past month, thanks to Mother Nature, and this has led to several drivers trying to make last minute adjustments. There were 3 new winners that drove to victory lane last Saturday night and that runs the total of different feature winners on the season to 29!

 

Byron Glotzbach has taken over as the hottest driver at Heartland Park Topeka's Dirt Track. The Casey's General Store Pure Stock hot shoe logged his 5th victory of the season last Saturday night. It was his 4th win in just the last 5 races. His winning record has a lot of racers in the class scratching their heads and wondering what they will have to do to just keep up! AJ Christian is 43 points behind Glotzbach in the standings. A few more wins and Glotzbach might just sew up his 1st track championship.

 

In the Washburn Tech Modified division Kerry Davis became the 6th different feature winner of the season. A great battle developed between Kerry Davis and Tad Davis (no relation). The two battled it out exchanging the top spot before Kerry Davis took control. The win helped Kerry Davis jump back into 2nd in the point standings, 62 markers behind the leader Darron Fuqua. Fuqua started out the season winning 8 of 9 races, but he has been kept out of the winner's circle for the last 3 consecutive races.

If this continues and Davis rolls up a few more wins, this battle is likely to heat up.

 

One of the closest point battles is in the Ferrellgas Stock Car class. As it stands Zach Henery trails Steve Herrick by just 20 points. Russ Moyer raced his way to his 1st, ever, career feature win, but the show was behind him as Henery made a daring dash to beat Herrick to the line. In doing so, Henery chipped away at the points lead. Herrick and Henery are veterans and they have been in points battles before. Vegas odds says that this battle might be even going to the home stretch. It's going to be a fun race to watch.

 

Jake Richards is the only leader that went into last Saturday night and drove away with a win. Richards has been the point leader all season long and had yet to get a victory. At least that was until last week. Richards took away the momentum that his closest competitor, Ethan Isaacs, had built up. Richards added 8 more points to his lead with the win. The White Line CDL Training B Mod division is still the class with the most competitors on a weekly basis. This fact, alone, leads most to believe that at any time this points race could change at any minute.

 

Fans this week will want to head to the concession stand before the races as HPT will have a $6 Chicken Tender Combo (3 Tenders, Fry, & Coke)! Each week the fine folks at HPT come up with great promotions and special concession items to go along with the great racing of the Super 8 at Forbes Landing Saturday Showdown.

 

Spectator gates will open at 5:00 p.m., hot laps will start at 6:15 p.m.

and the first race will go green at 7:00 p.m.
