HUSON, HARKNESS, CARPENTER AND LLOYD VICTORIOUS AT SKAGIT SPEEDWAY
Just a few weeks before the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup the Foley RV 410 Sprint cars are starting to shine at Skagit Speedway. Marc Huson led the final 8 laps to take the 25 lap feature win Saturday night. The Budweiser 360 main went to Brandon Harkness with Kelsey Carpenter finding victory lane for the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Brett Lloyd won his second Pioneer Ford Outlaw Hornets.
For Huson, his second win of the season in the Foley RV 410's came at the last points race before Dirt Cup gaining 16 points on points leader Barry Martinez. Huson chased early race leader Brad Pritchard through heavy traffic before finally passing on lap 17. Huson pulled away for his second win of the season. Huson also won the second heat race, after Danny Bullock pulled off an impressive first heat win. Travis Rutz was the Hard Charger with 11 positions gained on the evening.
In the Budweiser 360's points leader Brandon Harkness extended his points lead by winning his heat and the 25-lap Main event. Harkness followed Barry Martinez closely through traffic before making a brilliant move in traffic to take the lead 17 laps into the event. The A main went all 25 laps under green without a caution with race fans coming to their feet many times as action was spread out all over the 3/10th mile clay oval. Martinez would finish second with Alan Munn third. Dan Pierson and Josh DeWitt picked up the other heat race wins.
It took awhile for Kelsey Carpenter to find winner's circle this season, but he did with a masterful 20 lap feature win leading all laps of the Cook Road Shell Sportsman feature. Carpenter also won his heat race. Points leader Steve Parker opened up a 10 point advantage on Jimmy Deitz with a huge night of passing points and by finishing fourth in the main just two places ahead of Deitz. Rookie Robby Vaughn finished second slipping underneath Chris Pattenaude late in the race for the position with Pattenaude running the his best race of the year finishing third. Glen Reinstra won his first heat race of the year and Vaughn captured the other heat.
For the second week in a row racing fans saw 20 Pioneer Ford Outlaw Hornets take to the Skagit clay. Brett Lloyd captured his second main event win of the year over Monaco Garza and Rich Eldridge. Lloyd and Rick Clark won the heat races.
