Derek Brown wins Street Stocks headliner as Lucas Oil Speedway opens season; Reed, Jackson and Cornell also prevail
Derek Brown wins Street Stocks headliner as Lucas Oil Speedway opens season; Reed, Jackson and Cornell also prevail dirt track racing news
WHEATLAND, Missouri (May 17, 2020) - Racing returned to Lucas Oil Speedway on Sunday night after a delayed start of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Derek Brown celebrated the night by capturing the O'Reilly Auto Stocks Street Stocks main event, the spotlight class of the night. Other feature winners on Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Night at the Races Presented by OzarksFIRST.com included Robbie Reed (Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds), Kris Jackson (Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods) and Kaeden Cornell (Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models). Brown, of Stoutland, led all 25 laps of the Street Stocks feature to earn the $750 prize. Brown said he knew it was going to be a good night from hot laps on. "It was pretty good all night," said Brown, who also rolled to a win in his heat race in a new car he spent the winter preparing. "I didn't have to work on it and just mainly drove it." Brown, a former track champion, said Street Stock drivers always have an eye on October's Big Buck 50 Presented by Whitetail Trophy Hunt. He certainly has that race circled on his calendar and plans to be ready for it with more track time at Lucas Oil Speedway that he's had the last couple of years. "I'm actually planning on running a full season here," Brown said. "I'm not gonna miss a race and hopefully I'm better prepared for the Big Buck because of that." Brown was fast from the time he unloaded, clearly hitting on the right set-up in the long-anticipated first race of the season. He said the track condition was to his liking, despite lots of rain over the last week. "It wasn't bad," Brown said of the track surface. "There were a few ruts, but that's to be expected. For the most part it was really good." Brown started outside of pole-starter Ted Welschmeyer and quickly grabbed the lead at the start with Poe, who started fourth, climbing into second in just three laps. The only thing the kept it close for a while were numerous caution flags, but Brown used a series of green-flag laps to open a 2.3-second led by lap 14. Two more cautions soon thereafter bunched things again before Brown cruised as the race went green the final seven laps to win by 2.088 seconds over Zach Zeugin. Zeugin, of Fair Play, passed Poe on the final lap for the runner-up spot. Defending track champion Toby Ott was fourth with Tyler Worley finishing fifth. Reed uses late pass for Modified win: Robbie Reed of Mexico, Missouri, started defense of his Pitts Homes USRA Modified track championship in a big way, making a pass with one lap to go and then holding off Terry Schultz for the feature win. Schultz, from Sedalia, started on the pole and led the first 18 laps before Reed slipped past coming to the white flag. A caution before the final circuit could be completed led to a one-lap shootout for the win and Reed was up to the challenge, holding off Schultz by 1.125 seconds at the finish. Reed started fifth and advanced into the top-three by lap 11 of the 20-lap race, behind Schultz and Duvall. Reed - who matched his feature win total at Lucas Oil Speedway form a year ago - moved past Duvall into the second spot by lap 17 and set his sights on the leader. Duvall finished third with Dustin Hodges fourth and Lucas Gibbs in fifth. Jackson begins title defense with B-Mod win: Kris Jackson of Lebanon started the new season like he finished the old one. The reigning Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod track champ and USRA B-Mod national champion captured the feature with a 2.4-second triumph over runner-up Ryan Gillmore of Springfield. Jackson, starting fourth, passed front-row starting Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kansas, on the fourth lap to take the lead and he never gave it back. He earned eight feature wins in 2019 at Lucas Oil Speedway. Bryant slipped back to fourth a lap later before passing Gillmore and Turner and rallying back into second by lap 12 when a caution flew. As Jackson opened up a comfortable lead once the race resumed, eighth-starting Gillmore regained second and Dillon McCowan of Urbana went around Bryant for third with two laps remaining and held that position to the finish. Eric Turner rounded out the top five. Cornell grabs ULMA Late Model victory: Kaeden Cornell scored a flag-to-flag victory in the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Model feature, leading all 20 laps and holding off Cole Henson. Cornell, of Willard, got the jump on fellow front-row starter Henson and he set a blistering pace through 12 green-flag laps, opening a 3.1-second lead over Johnny Fennewald and Henson. Fennewald, the three-time reigning track champion from Appleton City, had just passed Henson when his car ignited into flames on lap 12. He rolled to a stop in turn two and climbed out before safety crews quickly put out the fire. As the race went back to green, Cornell led the rest of the way but it wasn't easy. Henson, of Russellville, pulled alongside a couple of times with four laps to go, but Cornell was able to regain command and wound up about three car lengths in front at the finish. Larry Ferris finished third with Shawn Strong fourth and Aaron Marrant fifth.

I-35 Speedway Race Recap Weekend 2
I-35 Speedway Race Recap Weekend 2 dirt track racing news
Great racing at I-35 Speedway on Seeburg Muffler Nights at the Races on Friday, May 15 and Saturday May 16 as race weekend 2 of compliance with the Missouri Show Me Strong Recovery Plan occurred. The weekend of racing included 20 heat races and 13 feature events, racing for everyone to enjoy. Four classes raced on Friday and four classes raced on Saturday and double features for the USRA classes. What a great weekend to race, weather wise. The track received moisture overnight on Thursday, but the hard-working staff and great drying weather provided the opportunity to race on Friday and then the forecast weather never materialized until the races were complete on Saturday. On Friday, the Show Me Vintage, the Sport Compacts, the Pure Stocks, and the E Mods, provided a super competitive race night. Damon Clevenger, for the second weekend in a row, was the first Show Me Vintage racer to the Checkered Flag. John Willard also was a repeat winner in the Sport Compact class, but second place Jason McCaulley and third place David Miller were on at his back bumper as they crossed the finish line. The top 4 in the Pure Stock class on several occasions were racing so close the old saying of you could put a blanket over them applied. At the finish it was Nate Barnes claiming the win. The E Mods were the final race of the night and what a display of driving skill by Shaunie Lanning. Trouble in the heat race relegated her to the 20th and last starting position on field. While the race up front was initially a battle between last week's winner Kameron Hanes, Justin Asher, Casey Burnett, and Blake Bland, Lanning was working her way into the battle. With three laps to go she took the lead from Asher but a spinning car in turn 2 negated that pass. On the single file restart Asher took off to lead the E Mods to checkered with Lanning second, followed by Burnett, Hanes, and Bland. Saturday Racing, what a way to start the night! Make up features from May 9 for the USRA B Mods, USRA Stock Cars, and USRA A Mods. The B Mod features were a who's who of USRA B Mod competitors. Kris Jackson, made his way to the legendary I-35 Speedway after his home track postponed, and from his front row starting spot led the way from start to finish in the USRA B Mod makeup feature. The USRA Stock Car make up feature was battle between Gary Donaldson, Doug Keller, last year track champion Jeff Dixon, and Tim Shields. At the checkered it was Donaldson with the win. The USRA A Modified makeup feature saw Darron Fuqua from his pole position start and lead the way to the win. The battle behind Fuqua and closing late was CJ Lyle, claiming second, and then followed by Dean Wille, Gunner Martin, and I-35 Speedway Track Champion Dennis Elliott. After the USRA make up features, a full night of racing was still in store with 11 heat races for the three USRA classes and the Limited Late Models, two B features for the B Mods, and four feature events. The super smooth racing surface provided super thrilling door to door racing action. Kerry Davis and Mike Taylor were the Limited Late Model heat race winners and finished one/two in the feature, making Davis two for two on the year. The second B Mod feature of the night provided amazing racing as the qualifying races shuffled the starting field. Veteran 41-year-old Jake Richards, from his third row starting position made his way to the front of the field to claim his first USRA B Mod feature of the year. Closing on Richards at the end was make up feature winner Kris Jackson, who started eighth on the field. The second USRA Stock Car feature of the night saw a shuffling of the results from the first feature. Old Pro Doug Keller improved one position from the first feature to claim the trophy and young Austin Bouzek moved up from starting position nine to finish in second place. Darron Fuqua made it a sweep of the USRA A Mods advancing from the seventh starting position to take his second checkered flag of the night.
