TUNNY, HARGRAVES, MILLER TAME SPEEDROME FEATURES
Two series topped the marque Saturday night May 19th at the Tom Wood Group Indianapolis Speedrome powered by Lincoln Tech. The Brown’s Oil Service Late Model 50-lap Figure 8 first saw freshman Tommy St John lead before being eclipsed by former top rookie Jacob Garrigus on a restart. Trouble came of the 45th circuit when contact with another car ended Jacob’s run. Ben Tunny bested brother Jesse on the restart for his 3rd straight Figure 8 win. The victory moved him into 7th on the all-time division list. Jesse was a strong second. St John finished 3rd in his second ever Figure 8 start.

The Brown’s Oil Service Late Model Oval portion of the program started with qualifying. Ben was fastest at 12.639 seconds. Heat races were then taken by Garrigus, Chris Green, and Jordan Hahn. The 25-lap oval feature was a battle of veterans. Former Modified king Charlie Hargraves was steady in scoring his first victory of the year over clockwise track record holder Donnie Garrigus III and 2018 Figure 8 winner Chad Sizemore.

Drivers from 3 states came to vie for $750 and the 2018 Superior Finish Lawn & Landscape INEX Legend Indiana State Championship. A hearty qualification session saw Ohio’s Ryan Miller quickest with a lap of 13.436 seconds. He then drew an invert of 3 for the 21-car, 50-lap feature. This race was a rough and tumbled affair that included a midway backstretch big one that eliminated several top contenders. But up front, it was all Zach Miller leading wire-to-wire for the win. The top ten included Ryan Miller, Alec Webb, James Edsall, Caleb Heady, Alex Peer, John Robbins, Tony Paquette, Sam Butler, and Mike Thurman.
