Cline, Strickler & Hawkins Share Mega 100 Loot
Mason Ziegler Snares Earl Hill Memorial Victory; Tim Dohm Picks up Topless 50 Title
(Middlebourne, WV) Three days of intense three and four wide racing action would welcome racers and fans to the Tyler County Speedway for the 2nd Annual Mega 100. Star studded fields in each class would see the best racers on the East Coast battle all weekend long on a table top smooth ‘Bullring’ with huge purse money up for grabs. Highlighting the action heavy trifecta of speed would see Jacob Hawkins grab the Renegade of Dirt Modified tour opening night win using a late race pass of Lance Elson to do so. Night #2 would be one for the ages as Kyle Strickler and Jacob Hawkins would put on a show like no other. The duo would make contact heading for the checkers with Strickler picking up the win in true Ricky Bobby fashion as the North Carolina ace would cross the line backwards just ahead of Hawkins in front of a vocal hometown crowd. Saturday’s capper would see pure heartbreak for Taylor Cook as the 10th starting Tar Heel wheelman would blast around the ‘Bullring’ top shelf to take the lead headed for sure victory when a flat tire would send him pitside. That would turn the lead over to wiley veteran DJ Cline of St. Clairsville, Ohio as the driver of the familiar green #4 would hold off Derrick Ramey and Jacob Hawkins for the monster payday and checkered flag.
A stout field of Super Late Models on Friday and Saturday would see Cross Lanes, WV driver Tim Dohm pick up the 22nd Annual Topless 50. The driver of the 6T would continue his dominance in Tyler County Speedway special Late Model shows in 2016 as the hard charger has already garnered the previously ran Earl Hill Memorial, a Jackpot 100 World of Outlaw Late Model feature and now the popular Topless 50. It was Chalk Hill, Pennsylvania’s Mason Ziegler grabbing the 28th Annual Earl Hill Memorial by overtaking early leader Michael Lake to secure the win. In Thursday Nights kickoff Mega Night #1 Steel Block Late Model presented by Kryptonite Race Cars feature it was Jamie Watson garnering the hard earned win by holding off persistent Tyler Carpenter and Zach Milbee.
Travis Thomas would secure his spot in the Wild One 20 on Thursday Night by picking up the feature ahead of Roland Bell and Steve Magyar. The EDGE Hotmods would partake in round two on Friday with Wylie Ford gracing victory lane for the first time at Tyler County Speedway. Saturday’s Hotmod main event would see Steve Magyar of Wileyville, WV picking up his first career EDGE Hotmod win in the inaugural ‘Wild One 20’ by besting Brian Clegg and Roland Bell.
Hotmod graduate, Brandon Weigle would secure his first ever FASTRAK Late Model feature win by holding off Danny Thomas and Derek Rogers. Beallsville, Ohio’s Josh Baldwin would continue his torrid 2016 season by picking up the STARS Modlite show ahead of teammate Ryan Saffell and Tyler Riggs. John Schooler of Newark, Ohio would make his maiden voyage to the ‘Bullring’ a success by picking up the 4 Cylinder main event. A large field of 20 MWRA Mini Wedges would see Lucas Zombotti and Gage Stalder pick up Mega in the Mountain feature wins for the youngsters.
