Six Winers at Shady Bowl

DeGraff OH; Shady Bowl Speedway played host to six different classes of stock cars on “Military Night” at the races. It marked the last night of points racing, with the champions named. The championships will be confirmed with a complete review before the final tabulations are official later this week.

The late model main saw a great battle for the lead with Russ Bobb and Landon Sciacca going at it side by side for the first fourteen laps before last weeks winner Mark Parker snuck by. Parker cruised out front until lap seventeen when Quincy’s Josh Smith powered by. Smith put his familiar #44 out front the rest of the way in his Smith Motorsports to claim still another win. Nathan Herron, Parker, Sciacca and Sam Heckman rounded out the top five

In modified racing, Columbus driver Buddy Townsend jumped out front at the drop of the green flag. Townsend had his Eakin Road Auto Sales ride set up to perfection, as he led all 30 laps to carry the checker. Brad Williams, Shane Shirk and Brad Yelton battled for the next three spots before finishing in that order . Rob Yelton finished fifth. Joe Pequignot won the dash, with Chris Parker and Buck Purtee winning heat races.

The street stock main saw 24 cars take the green. The race got off to a rough start, as two mishaps forced officials to abandon the double wide start and go with a single file restart. Defending track champion Rodney Roush led the field into the first turn on lap 1 and led every lap in his MGN Auto Sales Chevelle to take home the win. Fast qualifier Jason Burnside was second, followed by James Harding, Josh Sage and Chad Brandyberry. Sage was the dash winner, with heat honors going to Dan Reeser and Josh Longstreth.

Dylan Troyer led the first 12 circuits in the tuner main before giving way to Terry Eaton. Eaton went on to lead the final laps to pick up the win in his Even Six Drive Thru Honda. Troyer was a strong second, followed by Ron Masters, Holli Eaton and Gary Eaton. Gary Eaton was the dash winner, with Troyer winning the heat.

New Carlisle’s Kenny George passed Matt Jackson on lap nine and opened up a comfortable lead to take the checker in his Quick Parts backed four cylinder. Chris Prater. Jackson, David Callahan and Nicholas Meade finished second thru fifth.

The dwarf car main saw Jason Hitchcock all smiles in victory lane as he won his second feature of the season. Fast qualifier Jesse Gade was second, with Brandon Bayse third, Greg Sparks fourth and Chris Hull fifth. Gade carried the dash checker, with Bayse taking the heat race.

Pending a final points review the 2013 track champions are Nathan Herron (late models), Brad Yelton (modifieds), James Harding (street stocks), Gary Eaton Jr. (tuners), Chris Prater (compacts) and David Gerstner (pro-4). The points will be certifed by mid week

This Saturday (9/21) will see the Vores Compact Series try once again to make their Bowl debut for the season, as they have been rained out twice. The late models, modifieds, street stocks, compacts and pro-4’s will also be on the program. Racing is set to start at 7.
