Robblee, Windis and Hawkins Take Wins

Ground Masters night at Delaware Speedway provided those in attendance with plenty to talk about until the next event. Three weekly divisions took to the track, as well as the popular King of the Hill Spectators race. In the Ground Masters Super Stocks it would be Matt Robblee (#51) winning the 40-lap feature race. In the Demar Aggregates Truck Series, Joe Windis (#65) captured the victory, and in the 40-lap Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stock race it would be Nathan Hawkins (#47) parking it in victory lane.
The Ground Master Super Stocks opened their night with a pair of 10-lap heat races. The opening heat, the B heat for drivers in the second half of points, was won by Darrell Lake (#77). Derek McCullough led the race early while the caution came out on lap 1 for Calvin Verhayen getting turned in turn 4. Darrell Lake took over the race lead on lap 3 and began to pull away. Derek McCullough would hold on for 2nd after battling with Devin Jarvis (#88). Jamie Klumper (#07) led the field to green for the A heat race with Trevor Collver (#1) to his side. Matt Robblee would take the lead early on as David McCullough charged forward from the rear. Robblee would open a sizable lead to win the heat race while Klumper finished 2nd and David McCullough 3rd.
The 40-lap main event for the Super Stocks was won by Matt Robblee (#51). The #8 of Calvin Verhayen started on the pole position with Andrew Ferreira (#9) starting 2nd. On lap 3 Branden Verhoeven (#7) took over the race lead and began to stretch his legs until lap 11 when the #16 of Katleen Hosang and Brittany Beatty (#14) tangled in turn 4, resulting in a caution. On lap 15 the #51 of Matt Robblee took over the race lead. During the mid part of the race the #9 of Ferreira and the #52 of Jake Sheridan battled very hard for the 7th position, but on lap 25 Sheridan would get the better of it and move into the spot. 33 laps into the race the leaders hit lapped traffic, allowing Branden Verhoeven to close back up onto Robblee for the top spot. Robblee would hold off the charge and go on to win his second straight feature race, albeit this one for points. Gary Adriansen (#55) finished 3rd with Darrell Lake (#77) 4th and David McCullough (#39) 5th.
The Demar Aggregates Truck Series ran a pair of full field heat races to start their night off. The opening race saw Joe Windis (#65) win after the #97 of Tyler Fortey led the field to green. The caution would come out on the opening lap for Ryan Agar (#64) stalled on the front straightaway. This would result in a complete restart of the race, with the exception of Brady Smith (#91) who made a pit stop. Mickey Brydges (#55) got to the race lead early until Joe Windis (#65) took the top spot on lap 8. The second heat race started with Brady Smith (#91) on the pole but Joe Windis (#65) would take the lead on the opening lap as Smith slowed. Windis would open up a sizable lead while Kevin Lay (#5) finished 2nd and Rick Verberne (#88) finished 3rd. Just before 5 to go Kevin Lay moved into the 4th spot as Brydges got loose off of turn 2. The caution would fly with just 5 laps to go for a spin off of turn 2 by the #17x of Brandon Ardis. This bunched the field up and allowed Smith one last shot at Windis for the win. Windis would get a good restart and clear Smith and go on to win the feature race as Kevin Lay moved into the 3rd spot.
The feature race for the Demar Aggregates Truck Series was won by Joe Windis (#65) after Lucas Manning (#66) led the field to green for the 25-lap event. Trouble struck early as the field stacked up off of turn 2 and Kevin Lay was spun, resulting in a debris caution for parts from Rick Verberne’s truck. Rick Verberne punctured a radiator in the affair and brought his #88 to the infield. Joe Windis took the lead on the restart and began to distance himself from the field. On lap 5 Brady Smith (#91) moved into the 2nd position, moving around Tom Zagorodny (#77). At the midpoint in the race the biggest battle was for 4th as Lucas Manning, Mickey Brdyges and Kevin Lay all fought fiercely.
The Fire and Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stocks returned to action, after a week off. They opened their evening with the B Heat race, which is for drivers in the second half of points. On the start of the heat race, the #36 of Brian Brooks jumped to the lead but was black flagged a lap later. Jody Mason (#02) would take the lead shortly after and go on to win while things got heated with several drivers behind, however the race would go caution free. The second 10-lap heat race started with a caution as Steve Lovie (#1) spun in turn 1. Don Yorke (#53) would resume from the race lead, but it was short lived as the #21 of Marshall Schrenk took the spot. The field would battle tightly for spots until lap 8 when Don Hamilton (#30) spun and made very hard contact with the turn 2 wall. Schrenk would hold on for his first career heat race win over the #9 of Jeremy Schindel.
The 40-lap feature race for the Bone Stocks was led to green by Kyle Neumeister (#92) and quickly got off to a wild 3 and 4 wide start. Derek Moesker took over the race lead on the opening lap and began to checkout on the field while Neumeister held off Schindel for 2nd. The race would begin fairly clean until lap 13 when the caution came out for a spin in turn 3 by the #36 of Brian Brooks. The caution would fly once again a few laps later as a tire came off of Silver Geiger (#33) on the front straightaway, bringing out the red flag. Under the caution, the leader Derek Moesker (#51) entered the pits and began working on his car which resulted in a penalty. A few other cars also made their way into the infield, resulting in a few more penalties. The restart saw Jeremy Schindel shoot to the top position, as Nathan Hawkins (#47) moved into 2nd. On lap 22 the caution flag flew again for a tailpipe coming off of a car. On the ensuing restart Nathan Hawkins took the lead and held on until contact on lap 30 with Schindel got him loose, resulting in a spin farther back in the field by the #33 of Silver Geiger. The restart saw Schindel get the jump but Hawkins would regain the spot and go on to win while Steve Lovie finished 3rd.
The King of the Hill Spectators race featured an assortment of vehicles from a cube van to a Corvette and everything in between as race fans took to the track for 1 vs 1 drag races around the half-mile. In the end it would be Ted and his Mustang versus Jaden Chapman and his SUV. Ted and his Mustang would win the King of the Hill in the best of 3, even with giving some length advantage to the SUV.
The next event at Delaware Speedway is Canada Day as the APC Series invades the facility for their 4th event on the 2016 season. The event has been circled on many calendars since the schedule was released, as fans will be treated to a show that is not to be missed. The series will qualify as drivers try to break the track record, which was set the last time they were at the speedway. Following qualifying the drivers will have a last chance race if it is needed, followed by a 100 lap main event that will showcase the best talent in the province. The V8 Stocks will also be on the card running a full format. Following the racing program fans will be treated to a fireworks show to end the evening.
