Outlaw Speedway was able to survive the storm front that moved through the area Friday afternoon and evening, and though the start of racing was signifcantly delayed, the track crew worked hard to get the surface in racing shape and fans were treated to a tacky, fast track on Little League Night.
Steve Paine held the lead through restarts and a red flag for a flip by Tyler Siri in the 30-lap Friendly Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Outlaw Modified feature’s first half. Matt Sheppard came from his 8th starting spot to second to challenge Paine as Alan Johnson came charging up from 15th to the third spot. Sheppard made the move to take the lead on lap 24 to take his second win of the year over Paine, Johnson, Eric Fisher, and Joe Dgien.
Friendly Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Outlaw Modified heats were won by Joe Dgien, Steve Paine, and Eric Fisher. Dave Marcuccilli took some heavy sheet metal damage at the start of the 25-lap Crate Sportsman feature, but took the lead early in the contest Marcuccilli and Chris Fisher had several laps of side by side racing in the middle stages of the race while Tom Collins moved into the top ten after starting in 18th. A restart inside of 5 to go saw Fisher again battle for the lead, taking it with two to go and grabbing the win over Marcuccilli, Kenny Hammond, Tom Collins, and Dale Welty, who came up from 16th starting spot.
