Local Notes: …

Results from the Laurens County Speedway… Looking at the results in the main events last Saturday night where you found out who the true racing fans were as the action did not finish until after 2:00 a.m. due to a blown transformer that knocked out the track lights for over an hour.

  • MMSA Stock 4 Division…. The races in this traveling division took the placed of the 4-Cylinder main event and Travis Mosley won the main event by just over half a second… He did this taking advantage of cautions and working his way to the font…. Logan Richey and J.J. Garrett were the next two drivers to get the checkered flag in that order.
  • 602 Crate… The 602 Crate main event saw Billy Rushton win his 100th race at the LCS… He took the lead at the start of the race and pulled away to over a two second win over Michael Smith who finished second with Colby Cannon taking third.
  • Limited… In the Limited main event, Joel Richeson pulled away from Frank Coates late in the race to take a comfortable win over Coates… Mike Huey finished third.
  • Thunder Bombers… The Thunder Bombers main event had multiple cautions that really did not let the race get into any sustained flow… When it finished, Brandon Satterfield was the first driver to see the checkered flag with Dan Lawson and Dylan Chappell finishing second and third respectively.
  • SECA 604 Crate… In the SECA 604 Crate main event, Michael Akeson took the lead at the start and never surrendered it… Gray Patterson was the next driver across the finish line followed by Brad Rachels.
  • FWD… The FWD main event saw Billy Medlin and Mason Mack battle for the lead early with Medlin eventually getting it and going on for the win… The battle for second place was won by Seth Smith with Mack taking third.
  • Young Guns… After a wreck in the first lap of the Young Guns main event halted action, Austin Brown went on to take a win by over 10 seconds ahead of second place finisher T.J. Neal and Caleb Jolly who finished third.
