McCarl collects victory number 54 at the track, Beaver and Kinder also claim wins


Zomer settled for second, ahead of Davey Heskin, who passed Madsen on the last lap. Maeschen, Mark Dobmeier, Dustin Selvage, Don Droud Jr., Wolfe and hard-charger, Tasker Phillips rounded out the top ten.

Heskin posted quick time of the night with a lap of 14.666 seconds, while also winning a heat race. Droud and Brooke Tatnell also won heats.

360 Class

Randy Martin jetted out to an early advantage in the 18-lap 360 feature with Joe Beaver and Clint Garner in tow. Beaver pressured the leader early on, and went by him for the lead to complete lap three.

A good battle waged for fourth, with Jon Agan, Jamie Ball and Nate Van Haaften all vying for the spot early on. Beaver continued to lead Martin and Garner when quick-timer, Tyler Groenendyk exited on lap eight. Garner pressured Martin until gaining the runner-up spot on lap 11. He would not challenge Beaver, who covered the 18-lap event in a record time of 5:09.0 in winning his third career feature.

“I knew once we got by Randy, we were in a good spot,” said Beaver. “Lapped traffic came to us good, and it just seemed like it came easy tonight. I race Randy the way he races me, which is clean. It’s just fun racing with him and they pit by us. They’re good people. This one goes out to the Westphal (Wesmar Racing Engines) family. Bob is in a battle down in Oklahoma and we’re thinking of him.”

Garner was second, ahead of Martin, Agan and Ball. Van Haaften, Matt Moro, Russ Hall, hard-charger Ricky Montgomery and Alan Ambers rounded out the top ten. Hall and Garner won heats.

305 Class

The 305 feature proved to be a good one as well. Mike Mayberry led the 12-lapper early on, while J Kinder quickly moved into second ahead of Steve Breazeale. Point leader entering the night, Larry Ball Jr., exited on lap four, before young Sawyer Phillips slowed to bring the only caution with five laps in the books.
