It was a super hot June 30th at the Tom Wood Group Indianapolis Speedrome Powered by Lincoln Tech. The first of two April-May-June championship finales came in the Shelbyville Auto Parts Thundercars. Veteran EJ Neat marched home to a runner-up result in the 25-lap feature, just one spot ahead of points rival and past champion Dale Harper, to claim his first division crown. Brian “Doc” Canter was the feature winner for the first time this year. Harold Bruce and Canter won heat races.
Also wrapping up points gathering for April-May-June were the Last Chance Wrecker Factory Front Wheel Drives. Second year driver Andrew Brown patiently worked to a solid 6th place feature finish to capture the title besting the 101 competitors in this campaign. The main event saw a very popular victory as Brayton Laster took his first ever checkered flag over Billy Bartholomew Jr and Walt Arthur. Preliminary heat races were taken by Marc Bisson, Brown, and Bartholomew.
A healthy field of Superior Finish Lawn & Landscape INEX Legends came to play Saturday. Conquering heat races were Caleb Heady, Marty Griffin, and Mike Thurman. Quickest in practice Alec Webb drew an 8-car inversion for the 30-lap feature. Webb wove his way past early leaders Sam Butler and John Robbins for the top step on the podium. Robbins was a season best second, Alan Edsall finished third.
Reigning champ Ben Tunny was best in the Brown’s Oil Service Late Model reverse direction Figure 8 feature. He slipped past clockwise oval main event victor Jacob Garrigus with 10 laps to go grab his 6th win this year. Garrigus was a season best second followed by rookie Matt Smith. The oval podium was rounded out by Jesse Tunny and Ben. Jacob was the quickest qualifier at 12.777 seconds. RJ Norton Jr won the preliminary heat.
The hot streak continued in the Adult Faskart division. Kyle Norris came into this evening winning the last two feature events. This Saturday started with his #9 best in the early 8-lap tester. He carried that momentum into the 25-lap main powering to that elusive third consecutive triumph. Reigning champion Cody Kennedy and Dave Drinkard third.
