The Tom Wood Group Indianapolis Speedrome Powered by Lincoln Tech had a vast array of vehicles competing on Saturday September 15th. The evening was presented by the Hoosier Lottery and CSL Plasma. The FWD Demolition Derby was one of the best ever! It featured a final duel that went on for a while. In the end, it was JB Graham making his grand return after decades off the pavement to win over a very tough Cole Rhoton. Graylynn Grayer was third. The Trailer Figure 8 saw Jermie Latham cross the line first over Kyle Downey and “real deal” Willinger Neal.
The Superior Finish Lawn & Landscape INEX Legends had their 4th of 4 major events Saturday with a 50-lap INEX National Qualifier. A bonus of $1,500 was up for grabs for a driver to win 3 of the 4 big ones. Ohio’s Zack Miller had captured 2 and was in the hunt. Brother Ryan Miller was best in time trials at 13.343 seconds. Zack carved his way from his 10th starting spot to take the lead and march to a very nice payday. Ryan cruised home runner-up with point leader Caleb Heady third.
History was made in the Adult Faskarts. Teenage racer Skylar Shouse had never competed at the Speedrome coming into 2018. She began in the Junior Faskart class in which she won a feature in just a couple weeks. She moved up to the “senior” series at mid year. Saturday, Shouse was able to take checkers in the 25-lap main becoming the first to ever claim wins in both classes in the same year. Captain consistency Dave Drinkard was the runner-up with good buddy Bill Derrick third. Point leader Kyle Norris won the preliminary contest.
The Last Chance Wrecker Factory Front Wheel Drives started their all kidney bean course night with heats. Steve Todd, Stephen Egner, Scott Stewart Sr, and Scott Stewart Jr won those tests. 40 cars were on hand requiring them to be split into a pair of main events. The first saw Josh Fults outlast Scott Stewart Jr for his second victory of the calendar. Original Roadrunner pilot Steve Todd took third. The second feature event had Stephen Egner power to his first career “A” main race triumph. Veteran Jess Holliday was a strong second and third went to Tylar Brown in yet another car.
