(by Keith Ames October 20th) The racing on Monster Mash Night was as exciting as ever last night at Tucson Speedway, the “Action Track Built for Speed”. Ron Norman pulled off the racers version of the Trifecta setting fast Qualifying Time, winning the Dash and adding another Win in the competitive Super Late Model Division. The rust is gone and Ron is on a run as he takes over the points lead with a 19 point margin over Matt Levin who had a disappointing 9th place finish in the main. Brandon Schilling, returning to action, had a strong second place run as did rookie Mariah McGriff who finished 3rd as her grandmother was able to be on hand to see her talented granddaughter compete for the first time. Rounding out the top five were Rick Butler driving for Nickel Slot Racing and rookie Bruce Daley.
Doing double duty for Nickel Slot Racing, Rick Butler was the Winner in the Late Model Division. He was followed to the line by points leader and fast qualifier, Scott Strachan driving the # 77 owned by Brad and Joann Corneliusen, Brad Moyer in third with rookie Don Dority in fourth and John Lashley also sponsored by Nickel Slot Racing with a 5th place finish.
The Southwest Orthopaedic Surgery Specialists Modified Class literally started out with “Bang” as a crash on lap 1 took out two of the top drivers that included previous winners Will Hunholz and David Levitt sponsored by Sierra Cycles in Sierra Vista and modified rookie driver, Josh Davis. Bob Cramb stepped into the Winners Circle with the never aging, Ned Champine finishing second followed to the line by Jeff Bennett, rookie Steve Shoemaker (Scuba) with his first top 5 finish and rookie Lyle Gallegos.
Almost a full field of Pro Stocks were on hand again last night as this class continues to grow. Loren Sheffield had a battle the last few laps as Jeremy Smith came from the tail end of the field and wasn’t about to settle for a second place finish. Jeremy ran out of laps before he ran out of desire and talent. Watch for Smith and his team to put the 27 car in Victory Lane soon. Gary Cheek, Ray Johnson and Al Peters rounded out the top five in the very popular Pro Stock Division.
Kyle Milburg continues his winning ways with another Hornet trip to Victory Lane. He was followed to the checkers by Ryan Pagano, Allen Dowty, Richard Perkins and rounding out the top five is Tony “The Viking” Helm who is also the chief flagman at Tucson Speedway. The Hornets is a very affordable race division for beginners as is our START Stock (Bomber) class.
Chad Champine, a second generation Tucson Speedway Driver, hits overdrive with a dominating win in the START Stock class. Chad was followed to the line by Michael Munoz, Richard Perkins and Josh Hitchiner.
