Pablo, MT (May 5, 2001) - Defending Hobby Stock champion, Wade Shepard, car 4 came away with the first 2001 MGD Light Hobby Stock Main Event win during Mission Valley Speedway's third annual stock car Jamboree Saturday night. Shepard dominated the 25 lap race having taken the lead on lap four and holding it through the checkered flag.

A&R Trophies of Polson was the trophy sponsor of the evening with presentations being made by trophy girl Jessica Lozeau, a Ronan High School Sophomore. Ms. Lozeau is the daughter of Ken and Kris Lozeau. Royce Van Ness provided his restored 1976 Ford Truck as trophy vehicle for the evening.

Several drivers won their first ever races at Mission Valley Speedway during the Jamboree.  Rookie driver Billy Flesch Jr. in the new Bomber 4 division came right out in the trophy dash and took home his first ever trophy.  While Missoula driver, Doug Moeller who runs Bomber 74 won the Bomber trophy dash as well as the Bomber Heat race.  Mike Mikesell, car
33, was the next rookie driver to take home his first ever win.  Mikesell passed Leslie Olsen in the Bomber 4 Heat race holding his lead through the checkered.

The MVS crowd was thrilled with plenty of spinouts, bumper to bumper racing as well as an awesome wreck or two. The wild wreck of the night came in the Hobby Stock heat race when on lap 5, Chuck Morigeau, driving Car 8, tried to nose under, Justin Drake, driving Car 29. This caused a wreck on turns 1 and 2 that included Carl Nordberg's Car 6 that was caught up in the collision.

On tap next weekend, the 12th of May, is the Mission Valley Speedway 2001 Season Opener.  Double points will be awarded in all classes.  The Pepsi/Pizza Hut Super Stocks, the MGD/Light Hobby Stocks, Budweiser Compacts, Alamon Telco Formula Indy's, Bombers, Bomber 4's and Krusers will make the show.  Time trials begin at 6:00 pm with racing at
7:00.  Check our website for further details:  www.missionvalleyspeedway.com or our 24 hr information hotline at 675-RACE.
