LAKEPORT, Calif. – The temperatures were perfect for an exciting night of family entertainment at Lakeport Speedway this last weekend and those in attendance were left on the edge of their seat for the entire night.
The night saw the return of the young guys in the Bandoleros with the fast time, heat and main event win going to Colby Furia and the trophy dash going to Kolby Berry.
The action with the youth continued as the teens battled it out in the Legend cars with the battle during the main event between Luis Tyrell and Jeremy Doss.
During a midrace caution that led to a lengthy clean up the two drivers sat in the middle of turn number three and four and gave each other a hard time about the night events, to go on and complete the show in a spectacular fashion with the win going to Tyrell.
The Extreme Asphalt Outlaws made their debut with all the drivers gunning for the 2011 Champion Charlie Collins.
The fast time for the night was set by Kyle Telstrom who went on to take the checkers in the main event over Sean Sweeney of Kelseyville.
In the Taco Bell Bomber division after a few laps it saw the two rookies of Sierra Furia and Terry Allen Jr. started on the front row and put on one heck of a battle for the lead.
They jockeyed back and forth until a midrace incident with contact on the back straight that sent the 37 car hard into the outside wall and retired Allen’s car as well.
After the clean up the restart saw veterans on the front row and after the remaining battle the car driven by Mike Collins saw the checkered flag.
In the Jammer division we saw a first time winner in the Jr. Division with Jason Hunter driving the Kelseyville Lions sponsored car to victory lane and in the Pro divisions it was Wayne Young of Kelseyville taking the checkered flags over last week’s winner Scott Strugnell.
The action at Lakeport Speedway continues on Saturday, May 12, with the Jammer, Coors Light Modifieds, Extreme Asphalt Outlaws, Taco Bell Bombers, Bandoleros, Rental Solution Mini Stocks, and making a special appearance will be the BCRA Midgets.
