The Spartan Speedway "Race Recap" for May 6, 2005

Race Report

It’s the Easey Way at Spartan Speedway
By: Michelle Sprague

Tim Easey came home the victor in the 35-lap feature for the MI Army National Guard MI Modifieds. Fast qualifier, Bud Perry was buried in the pack at the start while, Easey, Bill Butler, and Steve Curry jumped out in front followed by Nyle Weiler and Brian Heeney. From 6th on back, it was every man for himself as they raced side by side for position. Easey led all of the laps from the start, with intense battles for position back in the field. It appeared that the mod squad wanted to run that outside groove, starting with Chris Ozanich who worked his way up from ninth, into the fifth position. Dick Maurer and Jason Parish also took the high line and by lap 29, Maurer was up to third from his 14th starting position. Easey, Weiler, and Maurer pulled away from the pack after a caution erased Easey’s huge lead. Parish went to work again on the outside and moved into the top five ahead of Butler on Lap 34. At the line, it was Easey, Weiler, Maurer, Parish, and Butler. Heat wins went to Troy Tucker, Dick Maurer, and Brian Heeney.

The Performance Automotive Northwest Street Stocks lined up for their 25-lap feature with fast qualifier, Dane Long, starting 12th in the field. Bruce Jones and Brian Beckner brought the field down for the start. Brian Beckner led lap one followed closely by Dave Thorburn, Damon Place, Ed Newman, and Dave Bollis. Place grabbed the top spot bringing Bollis, Newman, and Mark Smith with him, while Thorburn rounded out the top five. Long marched up through the field, sitting in fourth by lap 15, while Howard McDonough jumped into the mix. Long moved into third on lap 20 and Newman, Place, and Long battled three-wide for the lead on lap 23. Long took the checkered flag followed by Place, Smith, Newman, and McDonough. Newman and Bollis took heat wins.

Q106 Pony Stock action saw Trei Duebel and Jimmy Scavarda, who started in row six, charge to the front by the second lap to take over second and third position behind lap one leader, Russ Grandy. By lap five, the leaders had a front stretch advantage over the entire field and were running away and were well into the rear of the field by lap 10. Julie Dailey fought her way up to the front of the second pack, along with John Ward and Mike Putnam. With a runaway win, it was Duebel, followed by Scavarda, Dailey, Ward, and Putnam. Putnam and Scarvarda tallied heat wins.

In Andrews Chevrolet Super Late Model action, Jimmy Gallagher set sail and never looked back for his first checkered flag of the season. There must have been something about that outside line because Dave Stehouwer and Jeff Hackworth made the line work for them from their sixth and eighth starting positions. Seventh place starter, Jeff Finley jumped on the bandwagon as well and began his climb to the front. Bob Bauer solidly held down the second position, fending off a challenge by Finley on lap 20. From then on, it was Gallagher, Bauer, and Finley, with Chris Place knocking on the door as well. Trying the high side on again, Finley backed the car into the turn one and two wall, ending his evening on lap 38. Gallagher finished first, with Bauer, Place, Stehouwer, and John McNett making up the top five. Heat wins went to Lee Taylor and Gallagher.
