Friday night at the Indianapolis Speedrome was one for the history books as a rare grandfather/grandson match-up took to the track for the 35-Lap feature in the Carmel Sod Thundering Modifieds main event. 40-year racing veteran Billy George topped a field of 17 racers that included 2-time champion Jim Begley and 2000 runner-up and former Stock and Legend Champ Doug Greig and George's grandson Timothy George making his racing debut. Begley led most of the race from the pole with George working the traffic to take the checkered followed by Begley, hard-charging Johnny Hargraves, fast qualifier Chad Warweg, trophy dash winner Mike Stone and Greig. Heats were won by Cynthia Sizemore and Bob Higgins.
The Race City Auto Sales Legends Cars saw Jeep Pflum back atop the winner's podium over series sponsor David Sutton, Greig, 2000 top rookie T. J. Sneva and 2000 Speedrome Stock Champ Jimmy Kirby. Pflum set fast time and claimed the fast heat for the sweep. Bill Coughlin and Ed Black picked up the other two preliminaries.
The Sunshine Cafe Roadrunners points swapped hands again with Jeff Smith taking the "B" Main and the lead back from Charles Graham. Jason McDonough snagged his first feature win in the "A" main. Kenny Turnipseed shouldered his way to the Bomber Figure-8 capper.
In a special Race City Auto Sales Bandoleros Challenge Tony Sanders beat out James Robertson.
Racing is back under the lights tomorrow night with the Bryant's 76 Late Models, Chuck's Race Car Parts Stocks and the continuing saga that is the Sunshine Cafe Roadrunners.
