After a wild and exciting Friday the 13th, Delaware Speedway’s local stars returned for action once again for a regular night of racing. The Ground Masters Super Stocks once again took to the track, continuing their stretch of consecutive events. The V8 Stocks also were on track, continuing their stretch. The Demar Aggregates Truck Series returned to competition after sitting out last week, and were ready to start their championship battle under the lights.
The 40-lap Ground Masters Super Stock feature event was won by David McCullough (#39), the 35-lap V8 Stock feature race was won by Barry Watson (#45), and Joe Windis (#65) captured the checkered flag in the Demar Aggregates Truck Series 30-lap feature event.
In Super Stock heat race competition the B heat was won by Darrell Lake (#77) who found himself in this heat after troubles while battling for the lead last week. Trouble struck Derek McCullough (#38) yet again as DJ Christie got loose off of turn 2 and came back up while three wide, pinching McCullough into the wall as Jamie Klumper (#07) was stuck in the middle. Rookie driver Jake Sheridan (#52) finished behind Lake while Christie finished 3rd. In post heat race tech Darrell Lake and Jake Sheridan failed for being too low and were given last place points. The A heat race, for the top finishing drivers in last week’s feature event was won by David McCullough (#39) who started deep in the field and passed all other competitors on the high side and then went on to pull out to a few second lead in just a few laps. Trevor Collver (#1) finished 2nd and Andrew Ferreira (#9) in 3rd.
Feature race time for the Ground Masters Super Stocks was highly anticipated after last week’s excitement. Matt Robblee (#51) led the field to the green flag with Andrew Ferreira (#9) to the outside. The race got off to a smooth start until lap 3 when DJ Christie lit up the front straightaway with sparks as it appeared something broke entering turn 1. Christie was able to keep it off the wall, but left on the hook of Whitworth towing. The restart would bring David McCullough into the picture as he restarted right behind the leader Matt Robblee. Trouble struck on lap 4 as Geoff Chant (#19) got turned in front of the field and Brittany Beatty (#14) made hard contact with his driver side door. Both drivers were okay, however Beatty’s car was not as fluid leaked down the racing surface. Under the ensuing caution disaster struck for Darrell Lake (#77) who appeared to break on the back straightaway and needed the tow trucks help. As soon as the green dropped and the field made its way off of turn 2, the yellow was shown again as Branden Verhoeven (#7) and Darren Thirkettle (#56) went spinning down the straightaway. On lap 7 David McCullough took the lead on the highside from Matt Robblee but Robblee was able to hang with him. Ferreira solidly held onto 3rd, Gary Adriansen (#55) ran 4th at the midpoint. On lap 20 Matt Robblee looked to the inside of McCullough for the lead and the two stayed side by side for a few laps until DJ Christie forced Robblee to check up as he fought to stay on the lead lap. McCullough would go on to win his third straight feature race followed by Matt Robblee, Gary Adriansen, Andrew Ferreira, and Branden Verhoeven who rounded off the top 5.
Heat racing action for the V8 Stock Series saw Manny Ferreira (#8) start from the pole and lead up until the final corner when Paul Fothergill (#33) took the lead on the high side to win the opening full-field heat race. In the second full-field heat race Gary Zwygers (#93) won after taking the lead at the midpoint and holding off the field in a late race caution. The late race caution resulted in a front straightaway crash that collected several cars, none of which appeared to have significant damage.
The 35-lap feature race for the V8 Stocks was highly entertaining as BLANK (#) was able to visit victory lane. Terry Cole (#3) led the field to the green flag with Norm Roy driving the #5 to his side. Norm Roy took the lead and led the opening lap and began to pull away from the field as they all battled for 2nd place. Early contact led to the front fender of Steve Arrand (#37) flapping in the wind, but the race stayed green until lap 11 when Arrand was turned going into turn 1 after contact with Gary Zwygers (#93). On lap 13 Paul Fothergill took over the lead on the high side and began to pull away. Barry Watson moved into 2nd and began closing the gap for the lead as Steve Arrand fought to stay on the lead lap. On lap 21 Watson moved to the outside of Fothergill for the lead but the two would stay side by side for many laps, swapping lead changes at the line numerous times. Barry Watson finally cleared for the lead on lap 26 and promptly started to stretch his legs as the lead grew. Watson would go on to win the 35-lap feature race with Fothergill finishing just inches behind him in 2nd. Gary Zwygers finished in 3rd, Norm Roy finished 4th, and Manny Ferreira rounded out the top 5.
In their opening points night, the Demar Aggregates Truck Series drivers fought hard to start the championship hunt off on the right foot. In full-field heat race competition Joe Windis (#65) won the opening 10-lap event after starting from the front over Mickey Brydges (#55) who finished 2nd. Windis won the second heat race also after driving through the field making some daring passes. Rick Verberne (#88) finished 2nd with Zagorodny (#77) 3rd.
The 30-lap feature race saw Joe Windis (#65) take the checkered flag and complete the sweep of the night. On lap 2 the #66 of Lucas Manning got turned sideways in front of the field and hit Tom Zagorodny (#77) flattening his tire and causing him to spin. On lap 3 Joe Windis made a pass for the lead over Bill Sherwood (#29). Zagorodny sliced through the field quickly and made his way back into the top 5 by lap 10 as the field chased Windis. Rick Verberne appeared to be closing the gap for the lead as the midpoint of the race approached, while Zagorodny continued his march forward. On lap 13 smoke began to pour out of the back of Sherwood, but the race resumed under green. Sherwood would be given the black flag on lap 18 to check the issue. Windis would win the 30-lap event, Rick Verberne 2nd, Tom Zagorodny 3rd, Mickey Brydges 4th and Brady Smith (#91) rounded out the top 5.
The next event at Delaware Speedway is Kal Tire night at the track featuring racing from the Ground Masters Super Stocks, Demar Aggregates Truck Series, Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stock Series, and the first King of the Hill spectators event of the 2016 season. Grandstand gates open at 6:00pm, racing gets underway at 7:30pm, and as always fans can skip the gate lines and purchase tickets online at www.DelawareSpeedway.com.
