Jett & Fritter Grab Season 1st Wins at the Bullring

Shawn Jett

(Middlebourne, WV)  June 28th, 2014   After a week off the Tyler County Speedway roared back into action as the Annual Legends Night was on tap and a pit full of 113 race cars hit the ‘Bullring’ to pay homage to their heroes.  Picking up season first wins were Shawn Jett and Tracy Fritter while Sonny Conley and Travis Thomas notched their second checkered flags of the season with perennial winners Bird Wilson, Bill Tennant and Brady Reed also grabbing victory.  A very popular win was picked up by Robbie Thomas in the Legends race as the former speedway great showed no rust in wheeling his borrowed hotmod to victory.

It was all New Martinsville, WV’s Sonny Conley making a clean sweep in picking up his second J&R Excavating Super Late Model presented by Midcap Land & Timber main event.  Conley would set fast time, vault from his sixth starting spot in the dash to claim the win and dominate the feature event.  Conley would lead Steve Wilmoth in his 2014 maiden voyage at the ‘Bullring’, Butch McGill, Steve Weigle and Donnie Dotson across the line.

Sistersville, WV’s Bird Wilson would go from wrecker to checker in an unbelievable turn of events that would see the Modified Hall of Famer be carried off on the double hook after a dash incident.  A lot of thrashing pitside and a lot help from other teams would see the blue #20 make the call for the start of the Two Brothers Motorsports Modified main event.  Wilson would claw his was from the sixth starting spot and grab the lead when race long leader Donnie Nething slowed entering turn one with motor issues.  Once Wilson was in front he managed to hold off last race winner Junior Nolan and season best performances from Cody Eaton, Kurt Burge and Tony Tatgenhorst to pick up his third win of the season.

Shawn Jett of Salem, WV would garner his first win of the season in the Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model division.  Jett aboard the ASC/Slicks Detail Shop/Slicks Laundromat 1J Rocket would hold off all challengers in picking up the popular win.  Behind Jett was a spirited race long battle among Joel Prosser, Danny Thomas and Kyle Thomas as the pack battled in and out of lap traffic throughout the main event.  Following Jett were Prosser, Danny Thomas, Kyle Thomas and Derek Rogers in the highly competitive division.

Twenty three Modlites would take to the ‘Bullring’ with Tracy Fritter of Zanesville, Ohio picking up his seasons first win.  A rough and tumble main would see the field come to an abrupt halt after a grinding crash on the front stretch catching up to eight cars in the melee including many front runners.  Once the race resumed it was Fritter pacing the field with Travis Holmes dogging the leader lap after lap as the lead duo were heading out of four toward the checker contact was made between Holmes and Fritter sending Fritter spinning.  Officials would reward Fritter with the win.  Fritter pilots his own Eliminator chassis/ Extreme Motorsports machine and bested Randy Kerns, Jim Ruckman, Tom Keplinger and Gabe Phillips across the line.

A terrific Hotmod main event would see Middlebourne, WV’s Travis Thomas pick up his second feature win of the season.  Thomas would have to work high and low in trying to get around race long leader Mick Baker and with a couple laps to go Thomas would use the highside to his advantage to grab the lead and the win.  A tight battle behind would see Baker, Chad Smith, Kenny Isner and Levi Flesher round out the top five.

Collier, WV’s Bill Tennant would continue his hot streak as he would go on to win his fourth consecutive 4 Cylinder feature and sixth of the season.  Tennant would beat Donnie Wamsley, Robert Frohnapfel, Jason Frazier and Scott Critchfield across the line.

Brady Reed would win a very close and competitive JJK Mineral Mini Wedge feature over Dalton Anderson, Kylie Cross, Roo Roo Dotson and Steve Frazier.
