McNett Borrows Spartan Win, Finley Takes Over Points Lead

Spartan Speedway had another fine night of racing on Westwinds Community Church and Valvoline Instant Oil Change night. The 40-lap Super Late Model main event had an 11-car invert putting Owosso leading rookie, Rob Buckley and Jon McNett on the front row. Both drivers drove each other hard until McNett took the point on lap 4. McNett was driving another Owosso car as he borrowed Dane Long's #7L. Jon looked right at home as he was never headed to claim his 2nd win of the year. The race saw Charlie Ryan Jr. once again creating holes as Doug Finley and Phil Massuch followed. Ryan looked to have the hot car until Jim Heeney and Rob Buckley touch on lap 17. Ryan got caught behind Buckley as he gathered it up and fell back to 8th. Len Roberts lost an engine and caused the first caution with 16-laps to go. Heeney headed to the pits and gave up his fine 5th place run. As racing resumed, McNett and John Ledwidge took off as the battles were for 3rd and 5th as Massuch worked Dave Stehouwer and Ryan shadowed Doug Finley. Both drivers were able to claim the spots as the checkered fell. McNett took the much-needed win over Ledwidge as Massuch pressured. Stehouwer , Ryan and Finley took home the next three positions. Darel Woolsey, Stan Perry and Joey Shuryan claimed heats and Chuck Garrision won the Semi-Feature. Phil Massuch set fast time at 13:036 for the 27 Supers.

The Michigan Modifieds had a 13-car invert putting Ken Buchner and Lanny Clawson on the front row. Buchner took his first lead of the season until sliding up in turn 4, allowing Bud Perry to take the lead on lap 3. The entire pack ran in formation until Jim Butler shot out into 3rd. 2 laps later Butler was into 2nd and had his sights on Perry. As the lead duo took off, the pack fighting for 3rd checked up causing Mike Wells to take a wild spin through the infield and Mike Logan making hard contact with the front wall. On the restart, Bill Luckherst took 4th from Clawson as Perry and Butler stretched their lead again. Gary Sherman used the caution to open the outside groove and quickly worked his way up to 7th on lap 15. with 10 laps to go, lapped traffic allowed Sherman to get under Luckherst and Harry Parish got Bob Bauer. Sherman then went to work on Jason Parish, but could not take the spot as Perry took the win over Butler, Jason Parish, Sherman and Harry Parish. Ron Parish Sr., Dick Lapratt and Mike Wells took the heat wins and Lee Taylor won the 12-car semi. Gary Sherman set fast time at 13:721 for the 29-car field.

The 25-lap Performance NW Street Stocks had a deep 15-car invert putting Darrel Taylor and Dave Parker on the front row. Taylor took the early lead as last weeks feature winner, Ben Hidy caused the first yellow with a flat tire. On the restart the race was for 4th as Mike McEwan and Stan Lambert swapped the position back and forth. McEwan got quicker as the race wore on and quickly took 2nd from Parker with 14-laps to go. With 10 laps left, McEwan took the lead from Taylor as the race for 2nd turned into dodge'em cars between Parker, Chris Gay and David Thornburn. The ripple effect caused Parker to spin, which sent Doc Dutton hard into the backstretch wall. The restart with 6-laps to go, had Pat Dent striping the front stretch wall. Dent was able to continue as McEwan took off for his 2nd win of the year. Thornburn took home 2nd for his best finish of the year. Mike Havens, Rob Patrick and Landon Hidy rounded out the top 5. Ken Dollarhite grabbed his first checker in 13 years of racing in the first heat. Brian Beckner and Rob Patrick took the others. Wayne Beckner Jr. took the semi feature in a great battle with his brother, Brian. Rob Marten set quick time at 14.607 for the 32-car field.

The 15-lap Post-Net Pony Stocks had Stephanie Smith taking the early lead until 14 year old, Kenny Clark took over. Chris VanGorden was the man on the move as he claimed the lead on lap 3 from his 12th starting spot. Fast Qualifier, Cathy Clingan got by Trei Deubel for 2nd as a 5-car battle was heated for 5th. With 3-laps to go, Julie Abbot claimed the spot as Missy Bishop and Kyle Ballard went side-by-side for 6th. VanGorden was determined to take his 2nd feature event over Clingan, Clark, Deubel and Abbot.

This week is Bond Bonding night as we close in on our season ending Harvest 200 on September 1st at The Track the Stars Call Home- Spartan Speedway.
