May 25 Rained Out - Hall of Fame Induction June 1
Mother Nature claims her third win of the season as rain and the forecast of more rain has forced the cancellation of the May 25th event. Racing will resume on June 1 with Southwestern Community College All-School night. Students at eight area schools have been selling grandstand tickets to raise funds for their projects and introduce dirt track racing to new fans for the last month. One of those schools will also win the speedway's half of the 50/50 drawing on June 1.
At intermission the inaugural members of the Adams County Speedway Hall of Fame will be introduced. An elite group of nine drivers, fans, and contributors to the speedway will make up the inaugural class of 2013. Be sure to be on hand to welcome and thank some of the individuals who helped make ACS what it is today.
The SLMR Late Models will make their annual journey to ACS on June 1. Top area late model drivers will compete for $1000 to win and $1050 for second place in this prestigious regional touring series.
Modified Rules Amended
Rules to the Poet Biorefining modifieds have been amended effective immediately. All the changes are related to the spoilers and spoiler braces and can be found on page three of the rules. Click here for a PDF copy of the amended rules.
Late Model Rules Amended
For this week only (June 1) there will be small adjustment in the size of the restrictor cones allowed in some of the motor packages. This is an attempt to achieve parity between the multiple motor packages available.
For one week only any motor smaller than 400 cubic inches required to run a restrictor cone will be allowed to run a cone .050" larger than the size currently stated in the rules. The results of this change will be evaluated after the event. Engines 400 cubic inches and larger and spec motors will have no changes to their current rule packages
May 18 - Trent Jackson Leads the Pack
One week later and nearly forty degrees warmer, a good crowd was on hand to watch Trent Jackson wind his way thru lapped traffic with ease and hang on to take the checkers in the twenty five lap A feature. Only one caution flag slowed the field and lapped traffic came into play midway thru the race, but Jackson was able to hold off Chris Spieker for his first win of the season. With twenty cars in the field Jackson pocketed $1000 for his efforts.
Brian Foote came back from a disqualification last week to win the Poet Biorefining modified feature, and Northland pro-stocker Tony Hardisty got his second win of the year after mechanical problems had sidelined him a week ago. In the Stalker Chevrolet b-mods Red Oak's Jerod Weston survived the onslaught of caution flags to get the win, while Clarinda's Andy Davidson beat Joe Murphy to the line by a half a second to get his first trophy of the 2013 season.
