June 18th at ACS : All About the Pro Stocks
This week at ACS was Southwestern Community College Night where all students were granted free admission. It was also Northland Oil Pro-stock Driver Appreciation Night with $500 to win and $100 to start and the Central Vintage Racing Association also made their first appearance for this season.
A Taste of Old With the Coupes
We turned back the clock at ACS as the Central Vintage Racing Association came to the track for the first time this year, putting on an entertaining feature race were Lonnie Farley was able to hold of Mickey Fleehart and longtime ACS competitor Jack Larson.
Berghahn, Jr Still Undefeated
Four starts, four wins for Denny Berghahn. Jr in the Keystone Light Kompacts. The Nebraska native put on a dominant performance fending off his brother-in law Joseph Baker to pick up the win. Evan Hrabik finished in third followed by Logan Richards fourth and Jake Dixon fifth.
Hobscheidt Does It Again
It appears as if 16 year old Jacob Hobscheidt and his buddy Ryan Jenkins are set to have a thrilling championship battle throughout the summer in the Stalker Chevrolet B-Mods. Both kids have three wins on the season, with Hobscheidt picking up his third win last week. Throughout the race it looked as if defending champion Jerod Weston was going to pick up his first win in two years, but a late race caution shook things up allowing Hobscheidt to overpower Weston on the restart for his third win of the year. Weston had a season best runner up followed by points leader Ryan Jenkins third, Kody Havens fourth and Josh Sink fifth.
Zadina Collects The $500
It was draw-redraw Saturday for Northland Oil Pro-stock Driver Appreciation Night and when it came feature time Joe Zadina had to like his draw. The three time 2016 winner drew the outside front row alongside 10-time track champion Greg Miller. Zadina had to hold off the likes of Kevin Sharp, Clay Mercer and a hard charging Todd Fisher before he could finally put some distance on the field for his second consecutive win and fourth overall of the season. Sharp came home second for the third time this year. Todd Fisher surged up to a third place finish after starting last in the 12 car field. Clay Mercer finished fourth in his first appearance at ACS in 2016 and Greg Miller rounded out the top five.
Ramsey, Champ Have Another Great Battle
Luke Ramsey and Kenny Champ are each racking up the wins in the Chat Mobility Hobby Stocks. Champ came Saturday looking for his third consecutive win, but Ramsey had something to say about that. Ramsey quickly worked his way to the lead with Champ lurking close behind. There was a scare for both drivers with just a handful of laps to go when Tony Misener crashed in front of them on the front stretch. Fortunately neither were involved. Ramsey hit his marks and held off Champ’s charges to get win number 4. Tom Myers finished third, Dave Weeda fourth and Tim McCollum fifth.
Book Gets First Win in Modifieds
Dylan “Big Deal” Book was able to get the monkey off his back on Saturday night collecting his first feature win his Poet Biorefining Modifieds. Book and “The Candy Man” Jeff Wiggins and Jesse Dennis were contending for the lead. Dennis had just taken the lead from Book and Wiggins when a broken axle on his #70 machine forced him to retire from the race, ending his win streak at five and allowing Book and Wiggins to battle it out for the win. Book was able to hold off Wiggin’s charges and collect his first ever win at ACS in his modified. JD Gresham finsihed third, Dustin Jarillo fourth and TJ Patterson fifth.
Glendenning Gets First Win of The Season
Paul Glendenning came into Saturday still searching for his first win of the season in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Late Models, and he got it. “The Wild Child” Sterling Perkins had a decent lead early on in the race, but a caution eliminated that. With around five laps to go Paul Glendenning was able to get a great restart right from the drop of the flag to take the lead en route to collecting his first win of the season. Perkins finished second for the second consecutive week followed by John Hampel third, Mike Collins fourth and Troy Daly fifth.
