Memphis, MO (Friday, May 17, 2019) – Mother nature hasn’t been too kind to the Midwest so far this season, as the Pepsi Scotland County Speedway in Memphis, Missouri has tried two other times to get their first race completed. But rains during both of those scheduled days would force them to cancel those events. Finally, on Friday May 17th all of the rains stayed north of the Iowa / Missouri border, which helped to draw 91 teams to the grounds for competition.
The 14-lap Sport Compact feature it was Brandon Reu taking the checkered flag ahead of Isaiah Penton Brandon Allison came from 8th to finish 3rd. Tyler Haring started 12th and finished 4th ahead of Barry Taft in fifth.
Abe Huls and Beau Taylor led the field to green in the 18 lap Stock Car feature but it was Cayden Carter who would end up first across the finish line. Huls started to pull away from the rest of the field early but a pair of caution flags helped bring him back to the field. Carter tried to get under Huls coming off turn 4 for a number of laps and finally pulled it off on the final circuit, as the two raced side-by-side off turn 4 and Carter would edge out Huls at the line by a nose to claim the win. Huls settled for a close 2nd. John Oliver, Jr. was 3rd followed by Derrick Agee and Todd Reitzler in 5th.
The 16-lap SportMod win went Dylan Van Wyk who beat Brayton Carter and Bobby Six to the checkered flag. Logan Anderson was fourth and Adam Birck took fifth.
The final feature to take to the track on the night was the 14 lap Hobby Stocks, with Dustin Griffiths and Derek Kirkland making up the front row. Griffiths took advantage of his draw to grab the lead on lap 1 over Josh Modde and Mike Kincaid. While Griffiths pulled away, Modde, Kincaid and Kirkland battled for the runner up spot. Kirkland was able to take over second on lap 3, and then went to work on chasing down Griffiths. But without a caution, there was no catching Griffiths. Who cruised to an easy win. Kirkland was 2nd, Modde, was 3rd, Kincaid was 4th, with Eric Knutson coming home in 5th.
The next race event at the Pepsi Scotland County Speedway in Memphis, Missouri will be on Friday, June 14th. To keep up with all the events at the track, be sure you like there page on Facebook.
