Cody Rogers, AJ Spagnuolo & KC Burdette Highlight 'Feature Fest' at Tyler County Speedway
The Tyler County Speedway presented a rare Sunday evening matinee known as Feature Fest. Race fans were treated to a fan friendly quick program of qualifications and straight into feature events with Cody Rogers, AJ Spagnuolo, KC Burdette, Kendall Hodge, Brian Probst, Jacob McDaniel, Cruz Thomas and Gunner Binns picking up checkered flags.
It was Spelter, WV’s Cody Rogers blasting around the Bullring’s cushion for 25 speedy laps to secure his first win of the season at Tyler County Speedway in the Stutler Motorsports Super Late Model division. Rogers impressive run comes aboard the East Coast Underground/ Bear Contracting/ Ace Hardware/ Amos Paving/ Building Hope Rocket XR 1 machine. Rogers becomes the fifth different in the Stutler Motorsports Super Lates and led Kyle Thomas, Freddie Carpenter, Steve Weigle and Travis Brown across the line.
A tremendous McClinton Chevrolet Mitsubishi RUSH Late Model main event would see Shinnston, WV’s AJ Spagnuolo grab his first win of the season in dramatic fashion. The driver of the American Garage Door LLC/ A1 Lawn Care/ Spagg Racing Rocket XR 1 would settle into the runner up spot for the early duration with previous multi time feature winner Michael Duritsky at the point setting a torrid pace. Duritsky would seem poised to pick up another feature win but as the race entered its late stages Spagnuolo would begin to reel the leader in and with just a couple of laps remaining the lead duo was on lap traffic. As the white flag waived it was anyones race as Duritsky and Spagnuolo went side by side thru three and four slicing and dicing lapped traffic with Spagnuolo stealing the win away on the last lap. Following Spagnuolo and Duritsky across the line were Donnie Dotson, Logan Reed and Lucas McDonald.
A stacked field of 24 high quality Jenkins Auto Parts UMP Modifieds presented by J&R Excavating would take the green flag with JP Roberts busting out of the gates and into the early lead. KC Burdette would drop back to the 3rd position before starting his rally back to the front dispatching of Chad Smith and JP Roberts to take the lead. Once out front the Parkersburg, WV driver would drive off to secure his first win of the season at the Bullring. Following Burdette to the pay window was Chad Smith, JP Roberts, Kenny Johnson and Travis Dickson.
The Middlebourne Galaxy Food Center Sportmods would kick off Feature Fest with the ‘Flattop’ Flash Kendall Hodge picking up the victory and coveted trip to the West Virginia University of Parkersburg Victory Lane. Finishing behind Hodge was newcomers Zach Carr, Brandon Francis, Sonny Leek, and Ryan Payne.
The season of Probst domination in the Sigler Fabrication EDGE Hotmods continued as Brian Probst would score the feature event and his 3rd of the season over the 20 car field. Probst was followed by Steve Magyar, Tom Sigler, Eddie Probst and Josh Sigler.
Belpre, Ohio’s Jacob McDaniel would rack up win #4 at the Bullring in the Dual Threat Sport Cards SCDRA 4 Cylinder division. The driver of the McWilson Performance/ Welderman@MOVBT cavalier would best Jacob Hughes, Patrick Willbarger, Randy Wise and Timothy Harlan.
