Verhoeven, Verberne, and Moesker Take Wins
August 26th, 2016
By Ryan Dyson
Emergency Services Appreciation night at Delaware Speedway featured a full card of action. The Ground Masters Super Stocks, Demar Aggregates Trucks, and Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stocks took to the track, plus a King of the Hill Spectators race and an all truck King of the Hill spectators race. Race fans were also given the chance to throw water balloons at the Bone Stocks during their feature race, in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
The Ground Masters Super Stocks returned to action after a lengthy hiatus due to a rainout a few weeks ago. Their racing program began with a pair of 10-lap heat races, which were split in half by order of points standings. The first heat race, for the back half of drivers in standings, was won by Jo Lawrence, who made his return to competition in the series. Jaden Chapman attempted to close the gap and go for the win but came up short, settling for the runner up spot ahead of Derek McCullough.
The second heat race saw a clean race with DJ Christie starting on the pole position. Christie was quickly passed by Jamie Klumper, who held the race lead momentarily until being freight trained to outside the top 5. Trevor Collver would assume the lead and go on to win the 10-lap event over Matt Robblee and Branden Verhoeven.
Jamie Klumper led the field to green from the pole position for the 40-lap main event for the Ground Masters Super Stocks. On the opening lap, disaster happened for the #38 of Derek McCullough as he was turned on the back straightaway, virtually destroying the car. The incident started when some of the top cars got loose off the 2nd corner, resulting in the #38 getting turned head on into the wall. Calvin Verhayen took the race lead on lap 2 before the caution came out for DJ Christie spinning on the front straightaway. David McCullough took the race lead on lap 3, with an inside pass on Verhayen. On lap 13 the caution came out as race leader David McCullough went around in turn 4. Verhoeven led as the laps wound down until Darrell Lake caught him and challenged. Lake would briefly take the race lead until he slipped up the track the next lap, allowing Verhoeven back around. The two would challenge each other hard as they moved through lapped traffic. On lap 37 the caution came out as Devin Jarvis was turned by the race leader, as he attempted to hold off Darrell Lake. This set up a 3 lap shootout to the end, with Verhoeven leading, Lake restarting on the high side, Jake Sheridan 3rd, and Gary Adriaensen 4th. On the restart, off of turn 4, Adriaensen spun, resulting in another caution flag. On the final lap the caution came out again, this time as 3 cars collected on the back straightaway including Kathleen Hosang, Calvin Verhayen, and Andrew Ferreira. This set up a green-white-checkered finish. On the restart, Jamie Klumper went around, resulting in the races 2nd attempt at the green-white-checkered finish. The 2nd attempt would be the final as Branden Verhoeven would win the 40-lap event over Jake Sheridan and Matt Robblee.
The Demar Aggregates Truck Series ran a pair of 10-lap, full field heat races. The opening heat race saw Tom Zagorodny start up front and go on to win the race over Rick Verberne, who snuck up to the second spot after contact with Joe Windis. The caution came out early as the top three trucks of Smith, Windis and Lay tangled in turn 1 and slid up to the wall. Tom Zagorodny would go on to win the heat race, holding off Rick Verberne, who mounted a late race charge. Mickey Brydges finished in the 3rd spot, Lucas Manning 4th and Joe Windis rebounded for 5th.
The feature race for the Demar Aggregates Truck Series started with Kevin Lay on the pole position. Lay would lead until lap 5 when he slid up the track and came to a stop in turn 2, resulting in the caution flag. This handed the lead over to Joe Windis, who was being challenged by Zagorodny at the time of caution. The race would go caution free to the end from this point, with the top 3 drivers of Windis, Verberne, and Zagorodny swapping the lead numerous times. The drivers put on an amazing display that had fans on the edge of their seats. All three drivers were running the defensive inside line trying to hold the spot. In the end it would be Rick Verberne winning on the outside over Windis and Zagorodny, who finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.
In the opening Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stock heat race, which was for the back half of drivers in standings, Louis Fucile led the field to the green flag, alongside the #45 of Trevor Pauli. The first caution flag came out on lap 7 as Kassy Howard and Silver Geiger went around in turn 1. Kyle Tofflemire took the win in the race, holding off charges from several drivers. Doug Hawkins finished in 3rd, with Kris Lawrence passing him on the final lap for the spot.
The second heat race spelled trouble early as the points leader, Derek Moekser, was caught up in a crash on the front straightaway that also involved Mike Neumeister. The #31 of Chris Radder jumped to the lead early, as others battled hard behind. Moesker would return to the track and race up towards the front, but fall short. Jordan Morris jumped to a healthy lead and went on to win the race, his first victory of the season after some very tough luck. Marshall Schrenk finished 2nd and Chris Radder was 3rd.
The splash bash in support of the Canadian Cancer Society took place during the feature race for the Fire & Iron Custom Metalwork Bone Stocks, which allowed fans to throw water balloons at the cars while they raced. The race aw Derek Moesker start first and lead the opening half of the race until the caution flew for a spin in turn 1 by Silver Geiger. At the time of the caution, Jordan Morris ran 2nd, Steve Lovie 3rd, Jay Chappell 4th and Jeremy Schindel rounded out the top 5. On the restart, Geiger went around and hit the inside wall, resulting in the second caution flag. On the restart several drivers were caught up in a crash on the front straightaway including top points runner Nathan Hawkins, Ron Prouix, and Kyle Tofflemire. Also involved was the #12 of Joe Kicks, who lost a tire. On lap 30 the caution came out as Scott Slager hit the pit wall tire and rolled his car. The driver was okay, and walked to the infield under his own power. The battle heated up for second after the restart with Lovie, Davey, and Morris until the caution came out with just 2 laps to go. Derek Moesker held on for the win in a very wild and entertaining Bone Stock race, with Ben Davey scoring his best career finish in 2nd, and Jordan Morris coming home in 3rd.
Nick from Cambridge won the King of the Hill in one of the wildest spectators races the facility has ever seen. Fans stuck around until the early hours of Saturday to witness many firsts in the King of the Hill, which included Nick winning in his first ever appearance over Ted and his Mustang.
