July 23, 2011 Highlights

Written by Trevor Hollis.

 Crystal, MI - On a beautiful night filled with memories of loved ones lost, Bob Griffin picked up what can only be described as one of, if not the most emotional wins of his career as he was able to bring the checkered flag home on the anniversary of the death of his daughter, Kesha Lee.

Griffin was able to hold off an early challenge from second year Truck racer Ashlee Scott to take the victory over Scott, Dave Verhaar, Tim Wood, and rounding out the top five Kevin Deal.

With the absence of Carl Thayer the points for the Engine Pro Pro Trucks were shook up quite a bit at the end of the night with Scott Nieman taking over the points lead over former truck champion Tm Wood and Dave Peters. Heat race winners were Ashlee Scott and Bob Griffin.

Fresh off his win at the Wood Tic race the weekend before, Shepard’s own Justin Robinson carried that momentum to victory lane on Saturday night. Tight racing from second on back help up a lot of the heavy hitters and allowed Robinson to build a very large lead over the field. Kyle Borgman, Roger Wing, and Ryan VanderVeen battled it out for about 15 of the 30 laps but would ultimately finish in that order. Wing continues to hold on to the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Model points lead over Matt Pickard, Kyle Borgman, Mark Anderson, and Tom Dusen. Heats went to Roger Wing and Dean Huizenga.

Former modified track champion Myron DeYoung was able to make his way to the winners circle in the Engine Pro IMCA modified 20 lap feature event. DeYoung who started outside the top ten was able to use a couple of cautions and early restarts to make his way to the front. The winner on Friday night at the Ionia Free Fair, Chad Wernette, gave it everything he had but was forced to settle for a second place finish, third went to Dan Minikey Jr, fourth was Jerry Hunt, and rounding out the top five was Jason Borton. The three heat race winners were Myron DeYoung, Jason Borton, and Jerry Hunt.

The Smokers club Street stocks were up next and racing action was fast and furious. Will Stanley had to work hard to pick up his checkered flag over Dave Grega, J.R. Schmid, Shane Spencer, and Mike VanderMark Jr. Stanley took over the points from VanderMark jr. by only one point, third is J.R. Schmid, fourth to Prochazka, and rounding out the top five is George Wease. Heat one went to Joel Field and the heat two winner was Doug Helsel.

An action packed Flinn stock 15 lap feature saw a lot of good racing and a couple of bad choices. Charles Peterson was able to get out to an early lead and was easily the one to beat in the feature. Peterson had opened up a huge lead but as the laps wound down and the white flag flew, Peterson encountered lap traffic and tried to take evasive action. Peterson went high and so did some lap traffic forcing the 12 machine off the track in turn three and handing over the lead and the win over to Jason Playter. Playter was able to hold on for the final two corners and picked up the win over Alex Richards, Garrett Wiles, Zach Rummer, and Andy Chilcote. Zach Rummer continues to hold on to a lead in the points, Garrett Wiles is second, third is Chris Decamp, Taylor Daniels is fourth and rounding out the top five is Neil Ziegler. Charles Peterson and Garrett Wiles were victorious in their heats.

The final event of the night was the Port City Pro Stocks for their 25 lap feature event. Derek Schestag was looking to pick up his second feature win in as many weeks and things looked to good for the first group of laps until the handling started to go on the 17 machine and he was over taken by Gary Buskirk. Buskirk didn’t look back and rolled to a feature win over Chaney Newland, Schestag, Ryan Kent, and Chad Raby. With his second place finish Newland was able to continue his strangle hold of the points lead over Mike Husted, Vern Buskirk, Kent, and Jacob Headley. Heats went to Blake Hollenbeck and Ryan Kent.
