Jeff Roberts Takes Wild One At The Sportsdrome As A Fill In Driver For A Night

 
The most entertaining race of the night was the Dromer Oval on Saturday at the Jeffersonville, Indiana Sportsdrome Speedway. Todd Hash took the lead from the front row with Nick Johnson taking over second place on lap 3 from Scott Bruner.The first of many cautions came on lap 5 when the 4 car of Joe Clapp spun and was hit by the 60 of Perry Whitsett II. One lap into the restart, Hash and Johnson hooked bumpers and spun each other out. Hash got himself back underway, but Johnson could not. The race was red flagged. This meant that Hash would get his spot back at the front of the pack while Johnson went to the pits for the remainder of the race. So when the race was restarted, it was Hash again in the lead with Mike Bivens now in second. Bobby Corbin III worked his way up and took the second place position on lap 11. The next race stoppage occurred on lap 14 when the 34 of Jeff Roberts, subbing for Ronnie Basham III, spun in turns 1 and 2. At the same time, Jeff Whobrey, a strong contender, blew up the motor and spilled oil all over the mainstretch. Lap 22 seen the next red flag when a bunch of cars got together on the main stretch with Dustin Wilkerson spinning and getting hit by Roberts. With only 3 laps remaining, Corbin was poised to possibly take the lead as he had been putting pressure on the leader. But on lap 23, Tony Dunn in the 3 car, lost a wheel causing a pileup in turn 3 and another red flag. Then during the caution, Corbin suddenly blew a tire and had to go to the pits for a change. This would automatically send him to the tail of the field when he returned for the restart. Todd Hash would then go on to capture the victory with Bivens getting second. Chad Deeley had a good run and finished third with Whitsett getting fourth and Doug Wicker fifth.

 
In the figure 8 feature for the Dromers, it was Jeff Roberts jumping into the early lead. He had Nick Johnson in second place and was keeping the pressure on. The race was marked by a hard intersection crash on lap 12 between Craig Wilder and Raemen Riley. Both drivers were all right but both cars suffered lots of damage. Roberts continued to hold off Johnson as he would go on to win the 25 lap feature and also take the overall combined award for both features. Johnson had to settle for second in the figure 8 with Scott Bruner third, Doug Wicker fourth, and BJ Cadle fifth.

 
The Oval Xtreme 30 lap feature had Marcus Elliott get out to the early lead and simply run away with it. Chris Anderson, in his first xtreme race, held onto second deep into the race but spun and went out with just a couple laps remaining. The real battle then was between James Wayne and Alan Williams Jr. as they fought for that second place spot as the laps wound down. In the end it was Elliott taking the win with Wayne winning the war for second. Williams settled for third with Troy Phillips fourth and Mark Whitaker fifth.

 
In the FWD divisions, it was Jake McFelea taking the oval A feature as he led wire to wire in the 20 lap event. Dillon Kaelin took second as he made a strong run from the back of the field. Billy Higgins Jr took third with Ricky Puckett fourth and John Kennybrook fifth.

 
The B feature for the FWD Oval would have David Sidebottom take the lead but with Colt Moore in hot pursuit. On lap 9 Moore would make the pass and take the victory in the 20 lapper. Sidebottom finished second with Nick Cooper third. David Ross in the 14 car got fourth and James Blanchard was fifth.

 
The FWD Figure 8 feature was dealt with a lot of scratches in the 20 lap event as several drivers could not make it after their oval features. Ricky Puckett took the lead as the battle for second got ugly as Scott Bruner and Colt Moore got together hard going into turn four. The red came out as things were sorted out with Moore able to continue but Bruner getting put on the hook. Puckett had to hold off a strong challenge from Zack Bube in the final laps, but was up to the task as took the win. Bube was second with Bubby Gedling third, Moore fourth, and Derek Bradshaw fifth.
