Taylor Waste Services Late Model Twin 70’s: Shockwaves were made in Late Model qualifying when Motormile Speedway regular Mike Looney took the pole. In his first ever appearance at the speedway, Looney’s lap at 15.745 seconds bettered Peyton Sellers lap just thirteen thousandths of a second in a share of row one. Phillip Morris, Greg Edwards and Danny Edwards made up the five best in qualifying. Green flag was shown to the pole sitter Looney who out of turn two secured the point. Quickly did Peyton Sellers tuck in behind the leader and with a few taps to the bumper express to the leader his intentions. By lap two, Sellers takes the race lead but that lead would go short lived when Mike Looney came roaring back to regain his race lead. On back in third and fourth were Phillip Morris and Greg Edwards who watched it all as Connor Hall made his way into the top five. Still early in the feature, Mike Looney began to put some distance between himself and Sellers who then gave way to Morris along with Greg Edwards for second and third. Halfway saw Looney sporting a twelve car length lead as Morris gave chase in closing the gap. Greg Edwards continued to knock on the door of Morris before Morris conceded the spot as the feature headed into the latter stages. But then the races first caution when Gracie Trotter came to a stop over in turn two. Restart to the race saw Mike Looney hold off the charge from Phillip Morris but then Brenden Queen has troubles to bring out the second caution. After another brief caution, Looney was money on the restarts as all Morris could do was watch, Mike Looney would go on to win. Looney from Victory Lane, “We came down here to do some scouting and it turned into hunting tonight. The Lord has blessed me with some incredible people in my life. A lot of talent goes into these cars, Forrest Reynolds, this is the first car built, it’s the oldest in the fleet, man this thing had some bad forward drive. This is probably a dream, I just can’t believe coming to a place I’ve never been before to sit on the pole and win the race is unbelievable”.

In the Late Model nightcap, Jeff Oakley would get the race pole by virtue of the NASCAR mandated eight car invert sending race one winner Mike Looney to the eight spot on the grid. With the green flag waving to start the feature, pole sitter Jeff Oakley showed the field into turn one but its Woody Howard who would lead lap one. But then came Phillip Morris who laps later took the race lead but Howard wasn’t done. Back would come Howard underneath Morris when contact between the two saw Danny Edwards come to the front in a thrilling start to the feature. But the passing and the battles for the race lead didn’t stop there. Race one winner Mike Looney from the eight spot would work his way to the front, passing car after car and then Danny Edwards for the race lead. Halfway in the event, Looney continued to lead as Danny Edwards was doing a good job keeping pace but then the caution flag waved when Phillip Morris goes around. Back to the green, Looney slips in turn two allowing Greg Edwards to take the race lead as Danny Edwards also gets around Looney before settling in third. From there, hooked up out front in clean air, Greg Edwards would go on to win the second Late Model feature. Greg had these words to say, “Well, right now we know the car likes clean air we know that but when we get marred back, it doesn’t take off on restarts as I like. But once the long run comes, even in the first race I thought we had the second best car or maybe the best car to see what Looney had. Got to thank these guys for never giving up, we just keep racing hard, keep doing it and having a good time”.

The lap clocked in at 17.865 seconds with Paul Lubno taking the two spot in the grid. Green flag was high in the air and into turn one did the pole sitter Tim Wilson lead the field. Out to a quick four car length lead, Paul Lubno would settle in second as Kevin Morgan, Michael Waters and Dale Nichols were the early leaders in the feature. Lap for lap did race leader Tim Wilson continue to distance himself from Lubno. Halfway saw JR Smith make his way to fourth and so far, a caution free event. Paul Lubno who otherwise had a good run going never got the caution he needed nor could he collapse into Wilson’s lead. In a stellar performance and seemingly on rails, Tim Wilson motors on for the Grand Stock feature win. Wilson had this to say, “Like to thank them for sponsoring the race and to all the fans. Gotta thank the motor builder George Coleman, what an awesome piece under this car. George Nichols for the carbs and distributors getting it on point.

Eric Schaffer earned his spot on the front row as Jared Clarke and Bobby Hall made up row two.

A quick caution occurred when Josh Taylor went around setting up the races first restart. Back to the green and once again Travis Wall continued to lead. Laps later, business for second picked up when Bobby Hall went spinning in the turn two infield for the second caution. Once cleared, green flag racing resumed as did Travis Wall’s lead. Dashe Mclaughlin spent time at the two spot before giving way to Eric Schaffer who then searched for the leader who was well ahead but well within view. Schaffer’s worries soon ended when the third caution to the feature wiped away the leader’s lead. Just shy of the halfway and hoping for a great restart, Schaffer needed it but Travis Wall the race leader got it and soon began his charge. The race would experience one last caution but Travis Wall proved to be too much and would go on to win the Pro Six feature.

Dale Parro would get the shotgun spot on the grid followed by Landon Abbott, Sean Calway and Gordon Weeks as the five quickest in qualifying. With a wave of the green flag, forty laps were needed to decide the race feature as Colby Vance would get out to an early lead. Dale Parro quickly tucked underneath and followed the leader’s line. On back, positions third and on were still being contested when the caution flag waved early in the feature. Back to the green and right back to the caution when Bill Eaker goes around as tempers began to flare and sometimes often in the Super Street division. With the green back in the air, another intense restart ensued as the beating and banging continues. While positions sort out, the race leader continued to be Colby Vance. This time, Landon Abbott is there to harass the leader in second who soon gave way to Dale Parro for the spot. Making his way into the top five would be Jonathan White as the caution would once again be displayed for Billy Newman’s ride having issues. Ensuing restart saw Colby Vance get loose as Landon Abbott took the race lead, Vance would also surrender second to Parro who then looked for the leader. Halfway in the feature and Parro was not done with the passing as he soon would get to the bumper of Abbott and sneak underneath for the lead. From there, Parro would hit his marks and began to distance himself from Landon Abbott. Final lap and coming around to take the checkered flag its Dale Parro.

Parts Barn Enduros 30 Laps: Pulling the one pill to start the Enduro feature on pole would be Nick Martin. Thirty four cars took the green flag and taking the lead first would obviously be the pole sitter Nick Martin. But then it would be Charlie Bryant taking a turn as Martin would settle in second followed by Richard Ellis, Charles Johnson and Mikey Chinn. After a brief halt to the action, the green flag waved again as race leader Charlie Bryant began to mount an eight car length lead. Making their way into the top five were Hunter Kane along with Michael Joyner as the halfway neared. Several red flags stopped the event as the race action engulfed the entire .397 mile oval. Laps later and blitzing through the field, Colby Vance takes the race lead as the carnage continued. With nine laps left to settle the feature, Vance the leader was not without damage himself as his rear bumper would dangle on the track. Hunter Kane who would run second would get caught up in traffic and could not close. Colby Vance wins the Enduro race feature. Vance spoke in Victory Lane, “Coming back from thirty first, I had to earn that one. I don’t think many people can take that one away from I don’t care how good a car you got. I gotta thank old school here, I showed him what new school is about tonight but he got me last week. Gotta thank all the guys at the shop who help us just get ready and build these cars, were gonna celebrate this one tonight”.
