Thomas Doubles Down
(Middlebourne, WV) Another picture perfect evening for racing greeted race fans and a great field of cars would fill the pits as America’s Baddest Bullring presented the annual Bud Weigle Memorial and kick off to the Tyler County Fair.
Defending track champion and current two division point leader Kyle Thomas of Pennsboro would do the daily double and pick up feature wins in both the Super Late Model and FASTRAK Late Model divisions for the second time this year. Thomas would snare the J&R Excavating Super Late main by besting a closing Shane Hitt and Derek Doll with Travis Brown and Brian Baumberger rounding out the top five. Thomas would remain hot in the FASTRAK Late Model division as the talented racer continues to vault up the FASTRAK National point standings after his recent ‘Great American Crate Race’. The win would not be easy as Sparky Davisson piloting the McDonald Farms #44 would vault from the front row and set a blistering pace with Thomas in tow. Following a mid-race restart, Thomas would make his winning move and pick up the win followed by Davisson, Brent Trimble, Tyler Riggs and Derrick Shaw.
In a very competitive feature in the UMP Modified division it was wiley veteran Phil Jeffries of Montrose, WV picking up his first ever Tyler County Speedway feature win. It would not come easy for the driver of the J4 machine as last weeks pair of front runners Cody Brightwell and Rex Frohnapfel were glued to the bumper and in a dog fight for the front. Jeffries would not give an opening and lead the 21 car field to the checkers ahead of last weeks winner Brightwell, Frohnapfel, Gerald Deitch with a great run and perennial winner Daniel Hill would round out the top five.
Tom Sigler would notch his first win of the season in the EDGE Hotmod division by holding off a host of top competitors. Following Sigler across the line was Travis Thomas, Danny Thomas, Mick Baker and Brian Probst.
It was local standout Daniel Eddy garnering the win in the Modlite division over Jeff Fornash and Shawn Kernan.
Points leader Jason Tidd aboard the ERT machine would grab the win in the ever growing Bullring Bomber division. Following Tidd across the stripe was Ethan Cross, past multi-time track champion Donnie Wamsley, Clifford Anderson and Timothy Harlan.
The youth league of auto racing would square off in the Mini Wedge National Championship and picking up his first ever feature win was Carson Thomas in the Junio division followed by Jake Casto and Keith Powell. Ryan Hare would secure the Senior division win followed by George Casto and Tripp Perine.
Join us this Wednesday night at the Tyler County Fair as the EDGE Hotmods, Modlites, Bullring Bombers and Mini Wedges will headline the evenings action at the track. No racing next Saturday Night, Aug. 10th due to the Fair but Tyler County Speedway will roar back in action on Saturday Night, Aug. 17th for the Season Championships and Hillbilly Qualifiers in all divisions.
