$5 Frenzy Next Saturday Night at the Bullring

(Middlebourne, WV)  With mother nature finally cooperating race fans were treated to a jam packed night of racing action at the ‘Bullring’.  A full pit area would enjoy Retro Race night that featured helmet dashes and heat race pay in all classes along with the running of traditional Tyler County Speedway Eaton/Childers King of the Ring for Super Late Models and the STARS Modlites visiting for the Pat Herrick Memorial.

With a new format for the Eaton/Childers King of the Ring that would see twin 25 lap J&R Excavating Super Late Model presented by Midcap Land and Timber features with the second feature inverting all lead lap cars leaving many to wonder what would happen.  It was Clarksburg, WV’s Paul Wilmoth starring as the veteran racer would hold off a hard charging Mike Benedum and Scott Irvin to claim the first feature.  But it was the second feature that Wilmoth would put the fans on their feet.  With an 11th starting position all eyes were on Wilmoth but early in the race a four car battle at the front seen early leader Chuck Harper battle with Shane McCloughlin, Butch McGill and Corey Conley.  Meanwhile Dusty Hamrick aboard the familiar X machine started picking off cars on the bottom and would charge from his 7th starting spot to assume the lead and was poised for his biggest career win at the ‘Bullring.’  All the while Wilmoth started his charge with his patented Tyler County Speedway high line.  Wilmoth would eventually reel in Hamrick as the lead duo would race side by side until lap 23 when Wilmoth would finally blast his way around the top of the table top smooth surface to grab the lead and go on to claim both segments of the 13th Annual Eaton/Childers King of the Ring.  Rounding out the top five were Wilmoth, Hamrick, Corey Conley, Scott Irvin and Mike Benedum.  The win for Wilmoth would be his 3rd victory in the Eaton/Childers King of the Ring.

The Pat Herrick Memorial would see 30 of the best Chris Metz State Farm Insurance Modlite racers converge at the ‘bullring’ and when the dust settled it was top runner Alan Knepper of Somerset, PA picking up the win aboard the EVO Race Car.  Grandson of the great Pat Herrick, Brandon Fluharty would thrill the locals with a fine 2nd place run followed by Tracy Fritter, Jeff Teeters and Braeden Dillinger.  It was point leader Josh Baldwin picking up the win in the ‘King of the Kounty’.

It was the ‘G’ Man Gerald Deitch of Clarington, OH picking up the win in the Two Brothers Motorsports Modified main event.  Deitch would put on a dominating performance aboard the Pierce Chassis 43d machine and ending a long dry spell at the ‘bullring’.  Rounding out the top five were DJ Cline, Tommy Powell, Kevin Dotson and Michael Stevens.

2013 Point Leader Kyle Thomas from Pennsboro, WV would garner another victory in the Peoples Bank FASTRAK Late Model division.  Thomas would shoot to the lead and cruise to victory ahead of Joel Prosser, Brandon McGrady, Kris Southern, and Michael Griffin.

A full field of Hotmods would hit the high banks and it was once again it was Cheshire, Ohio’s Mike Conkle claiming the win over Chad Smith, Glenn Underwood, Lou Ennis and Travis Thomas.  In the fan favorite ‘Crack the Whip’ race it was 10th starting Lou Ennis charging to take the victory in impressive fashion.

Kicking off the evening it was once again the ‘little ice man’ Jacob Ice picking up another victory.  Trailing Ice across the stripe were Georgie Tennant, Phillip Bubeck, Kylie Cross and Kaitlyn Frazier.
