Delaware Speedway’s monster triple header weekend featuring the Monster Truck Showdown kicked off on Friday night with weekly racing featuring the Ground Masters Super Stocks, Demar Aggregates Trucks, and Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stocks.
The Ground Masters Super Stocks started the rounds of group qualifying with their 3 minute session. Matt Robblee set the quick time over Jamie Klumper and Gary Adriaensen with a 20.915. The Demar Aggregates Trucks were next in line as Rick Verberne topped the session 21.658 over Tom Zagorodny and Lucas Manning. Ben Davey earned the top position in Bone Stock qualifying over Bill Brekelmans and Derek Moesker.
The Ground Masters Super Stocks were up first for their opening 25-lap feature race with Gary Adriaensen on pole alongside Jake Sheridan. Sheridan took the lead and paced the field for the opening circuits before Matt Robblee got to his back bumper and began to pressure. The first caution came out on lap 7 as Jamie Klumper went around in turn 3, he was able to continue as there was no damage to his #07. Robblee would take the race lead on lap 10 and work to distance himself from the field. The battle for 3rd heated up with 10 to go as Adriaensen worked the back bumper of Andrew Ferreira with Jake Sheridan up ahead. Robblee would score the win over Sheridan and Ferreira in the race that went green-checkers.
Tom Zagorodny started the Demar Aggregates Trucks opening feature race on the pole beside Rick Verberne. Verberne led the opening segment before he slowed on lap 10 and entered the infield, handing the top spot to Tom Zagorodny as Lucas Manning trailed from behind. Just 3 laps before the event finished Lucas Manning slowed and entered the infield ending his great run. Tom Zagorodny would go on to win the race over Mickey Brydges and Kevin Lay.
Jeremiah Rabideau led the field to the green flag beside David Rockwood for the first Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stock feature, a 25-lap event. On the opening lap Kassy Howard made significant contact with the outside wall in turn 2 and the caution flag would be displayed. The restart would be trouble again as several cars made contact throughout the field and the caution was displayed once again before a lap was completed. David Rockwood took the race lead once it got going before the caution for Nathan Hawkins and Ben Davey getting together on the front straightaway on lap 9. Under the caution, Hawkins charged Ben Davey as he drove past down pit road and jumped into the window of the #07 car showing his displeasure. The restart allowed Moesker to gain the lead as Bill Brekelmans and David Rockwood battled hard behind for 2nd and 3rd. With just under 10 laps to go Brekelmans gained the race lead but it was short lived as Rockwood moved to the inside and into the top position. Rockwood would work the lapped traffic perfectly and go on to win the race as Brekelmans settled for 2nd and Derek Moesker came home in 3rd.
The second Ground Masters Super Stock feature started with Devin Jarvis on the pole alongside Kathleen Green. The field roared to life off of turn 4 after an invert from the qualifying order. David McCullough jumped to the race lead right away but Matt Robblee would follow through behind and not let him get away. Gary Adriaensen worked his way through the field and made a run for 4th on Jake Sheridan on lap 10 and would then begin to reel in Andrew Ferreira, who ran 3rd. As 10 laps to go came and went the battle for the lead stretched out as Robblee lost a few car lengths on McCullough’s #39. Robblee closed the gap once again by 5 to go but would come up short as David McCullough scored the victory. The two finished ahead of Andrew Ferreira and Gary Adriaensen.
Kevin Lay and Mickey Brydges started up front for the final Demar Aggregates Truck Series feature and led the field to the green silk. Lay led the opening circuit as those behind ran side by side. On lap 2 Lucas Manning took the race lead before the caution came out as Kevin Lay was sent hard into the outside wall. The battle upfront got heated as Manning was being pressured by Rick Verberne and Tom Zagorodny. On lap 9 Verberne would make the move to the high side and take over the lead, leaving Manning to 2nd. As the laps ticked away Verberne would get further away from the field and go on to win the race as Manning would bring his #66 to a 2nd place result ahead of Tom Zagorodny.
Joe Kicks started on pole for the final race of the evening with Jordan Willms to his high side. The field would get wild right away as they started inverted from qualifying meaning the faster times were in the back. Similar to the start of the first feature the caution flag was displayed for a crash before a lap was put on the board. Brian Rockwood led the opening 6 circuits before Bill Brekelmans took the top position away with a high side pass. As halfway came the battles in the top 10 got heated and Jordan Morris almost got turned, making a wild save on the front straightaway. The caution came out on lap 13 as the 93 of Shane Saker went for a spin in turn 3. The caution came out again on lap 16 as Chris Radder was turned off of turn 4. This came just after Derek Moesker took over the race lead, however Brekelmans had beat him to the line the lap before, handing him the top position back for the restart. The lead would change hand several times after the restart as Moesker and Brekelmans raced hard, with Rockwood challenging the battle as well. The caution came out again on lap 22 when Shane Saker came to a stop off of turn 4, setting up a frantic dash to the end. The restart would allow Derek Moesker to steal the win as Brekelmans was forced to settle for 2nd over David Rockwood in 3rd.
