Big Crowd Enjoys Kings of Karnage at Tyler County Speedway


Big Crowd Enjoys Kings of Karnage at Tyler County Speedway

Finally Mother Nature would offer up a beautiful night of action at America’s Baddest Bullring. A pit full of racers, thrill seekers and combatants would square off as the Hometown Racing Association and Thomas Motorsports would present the annual Kings of Karnage show. A family fun night was on the agenda as Buses, a crazy Enduro, smashing and crashing Demo Derby plus edge of your seat racing along with the highly entertaining Kids Power Wheels derby was all on display at the Tyler County Speedway.

In the Sigler Fabrication EDGE Hotmods presented by Poske Performance Parts it would be ‘Dynamite’ Danny Thomas notching his 4th win of the season. It wouldn’t be easy for the talented racer as a subpar qualifying effort would relegate the driver of the 7JR to deep in the field of his heat race. Not to be deterred the veteran racer would charge to the front in the heat securing a front row starting spot in the A-Main. Once the green flag flew Thomas would waste no time blasting to the lead and dominating the event securing his 4th checkered flag of the season. Following behind the winner were Tom Sigler, Brian Probst in his first night out, steady Daniel Muldrew and Jeff Gorrell.

Daniel Eddy aboard the familiar 99e would snare his second Jenkins Auto Parts Modlite main event of the season. It would not come easy for the likeable racer as Eddy would have a rearview mirror full of the #862 of Mitch Ward. Ward would hound Eddy for the duration of the 15 lap affair before finally settling for the bridesmaid role. Following Eddy and Ward across the line were teammates Josh Baldwin and Ryan Saffell with Scott Sole claiming the last top five spot.

Kicking off the action would be the kids of the MWRA Mini Wedge division. Picking up wins were Ryan Hare over Luke Hyre and George Casto in the Senior division while Tripp Perine would garner Junior laurels ahead of Jake Casto and Wyatt Demoss.

A big night of metal to metal car crushing action would see the gladiators of the arena invade the Bullring with Derrike Stack of Dexter City, Ohio taking the Full Size Demolition Derby over Ryan Kuhn and Jared Pittman. In the Compact Demolition Derby it was Woodsfield, Ohio’s David Cline outlasting Corey Dakan and Nick Forni.

Zach Travis of West Union, WV driving the USA-1 School Bus would hold off Jason Maisey aboard ‘Black Betty’ to win the Battle of the Buses.
In the unique Kids Power Wheels it was Josh Baldwin taking the win in the 3-5 year old class with Kason Eddy winning best performance in the 6-9 year old category.

In an excellent ‘Ricky Bobby’ Enduro event it was Chad Dotson of West Union passing race leader Timothy Drain on lap #99 to pick up the win and the thousand dollars. Following Dotson and Drain across the line were Kevin Dotson, Zach Travis and John Rowgh.

Be sure to join us this Saturday Night, June 16th as the Long Reach Federal Credit Union presents the rescheduled Eaton/Childers King of the Ring $2,000 to win FASTRAK Late Model special along with Mid Season Championship and Double Points up for grabs in all divisions.
