Logue and May only winners on rain shortened night at Boone Speedway

August 08, 2015

Mother Nature held off long enough for two features to be completed at the Boone Speedway on Saturday night before the raindrops became too heavy to continue racing.   The IMCA Hobby Stocks had their feature halted with six laps in the books, which they will complete next Saturday night along with make up features for the IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Modifieds.

Cory Dennis led the opening laps of the 15-lap Mod Lite feature.  Travis Stensland was soon up to challenge Dennis and after persistent

Josh May

Josh May was able to slip into the lead on the backstretch of the final lap, taking the checkers and the win on Saturday, August 8, 2015, at Boone Speedway.

pestering, took command at lap ten.  Stensland pulled to a nice lead until lap thirteen saw a trail of smoke rise from his machine, and he attempted to limp it into the infield.  Unfortunately, Cory Dennis came upon his disabled machine too quickly, made contact, and he rolled his ride on the front stretch.  Both drivers were okay.

With the two front runners out of the race, it was Kevin Grisham inheriting the lead for the green-white-checkered finish.  Grisham had his hopes of a win vanish when Josh May was able to slip by him on the backstretch of the final lap, beating him to the checkers and the win.  Grisham had to be content with second place, third went to Justin Rankin, fourth to Joel Keenan and Randy Bryan rounded out the top five.  Josh May took his fourth win of the year and is the point leader in the Mod Lite division.

Jonathon Logue took another win in the IMCA Northern SportMod class.  Logue took command at lap seven and from there, never looked back.  Jake McBirnie finished second after starting twenty-fifth, and holds his point lead, third went to Curtis Veber who had led the first six laps, fourth was Randy Roberts and Michael Murphy was fifth.  This was Logue’s fourth win of the season.

The IMCA Hobby Stocks got six laps in the books before the rain started to fall.  Eric Stanton had just taken the lead from Korbin Nourse when the race was stopped.  Track officials made the call to cancel the rest of the night’s racing program as radar indicated an approaching heavier cell.

Next Saturday night, August 15, the Hobby Stock feature will be completed, as well as make up features for the IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Modifieds.  Then, a complete show will follow for all five classes.  Hot laps are scheduled for 6:45 and racing at 7:30.
