Jack Landis Takes Win and Points Lead at Spartan Speedway

The COMCAST Cablevision Super Late Model 50-lap feature had a 12-car invert putting John Dunivon and Stan Perry on the pole. Perry jumped out to take the lead until Jimmy Gallagher checked up in turn 4 causing Dave Stehouwer, Jim Heeney and Jeff Hackworth to get together. The restart had Jack Landis as the car to watch as he quickly worked up to Perry's bumper by lap 6. As the Ohio Posse took off, a great race heated up for 3rd between Tim Ryan, Dunivon and Charlie Ryan Jr. Lap 14 had Charlie Ryan using the outside groove to take over 3rd and from there quickly join Perry and Landis in a 3-way battle for the lead. The half way point had the trio racing under a blanket as Landis looked under Perry for the lead and Ryan Jr. jumping to the outside. The 3 veterans put on a show until Landis finally got the lead, bringing Ryan Jr. with him. Another veteran, Dave Stehouwer was not be outdone as he quickly moved through the field and was on Perry's bumper for 3rd. Racing was fierce from 5th through 12th as Chris Place and Tim Ryan ran door handle to door handle for the last 10 laps. Landis (started 6th) was able to hold off Ryan Jr. (started 9th) for the win as Stehower (started 10th) took over 3rd from Perry and Place (started 11th) finally took home a well-earned 5th place finish.

The WIBM AM 1450 Michigan Modifeds were out next for their 35-lap feature event. Leroy Ellis and Bill Butler were the starting front row with Ellis taking the early lead. Ellis looked to have his first win in hand pacing the field for the first 28 laps.

Mingus (started 4th) then went on to claim his first win of the season over Wallace (started 9th), Ellis, Bud Perry (started 11th) and Harry Parrish Sr. (started 3rd).

Lap 6 had Thornburn finally getting the lead as Ben Hidy and Mike Havens tangled on the front stretch. When racing resumed, Thorburn and Marten waged a great battle for the lead with Marten retaking the point on lap 11. Landon Hidy was the man on the move as he took over 3rd on lap 12 from his 14th starting spot. Lap 14 had Landon Hidy on the outside and taking over the top spot.
