FREDERICKTOWN, Mo. -- Kevin Mosier of Stoney Point had never won a feature race during his three-year racing career -- until Friday and Sunday night at the Fredericktown Raceway.
Mosier drove his #23 Hobby Stock car to his first feature win on Friday and then added a triple crown night (winning his heat, the trophy dash and the feature) on Sunday night. The win set off a huge celebration on the front straight featuring Kevin's family, pit crew and friends. Mosier's win on Sunday night highlighted a huge day of racing that featured eight feature races, some dramatic finishes and some wild crashes.
Here's a recap of the entire weekend of racing at the Fredericktown raceway.
There were five classes of cars taking part in the races at "The Rock" on Sunday with the 600cc Multis being a major part of the festivities with not one, but two feature races being held. During the first feature (which was a make-up from the rained-out Saturday, Aug. 2nd show) Kent Buckley of Farmington was basically untouchable as he outraced the field to pick up the checkered flag. Casey Barnhouse settled for second place with Tyler Thompson third, Joey Boyd fourth and Junior Ferguson fifth. They were followed by Jimmy Bridgeman, Tommy Boyd, David Frohman, Ray Statler and Dustin Barks.
Then in the second Multi feature, Casey Barnhouse made an early pass of Buckley stand-up and he sailed to victory in the 20-lap regular feature. Brad Loyet captured second place with Buckley third, Ferguson fourth and Lance McKinney fifth. They were followed by Joey Boyd, Rodney Williams, Kevin Staley, Tommy Boyd and Frohman. Heat race winners were Buckley, Barnhouse and Joey Boyd. Buckley also won the trophy dash.
In the RAMS Mini Stock class, a pair of wild accidents in the second feature and one in the first marred an otherwise nice night of racing in the class. In the first feature, J.J. "Smurf" Johnson's #66 Ford Pinto had a mechancial failure in the front end and his car smashed head-first into the wall. Johnson was uninjured, the car was not.
