Finally after two weeks, fans got to see cars out on the track racing in an action packed night, along with some history that was made in the Great Clips Night of Destruction featuring the O’Reilly Auto Parts 100, as it was double-points night for all series then not to mention fans got to see a Monster Truck Car Crushing Exhibition and for the finale the 109 U-Pull-It Demolition Derby.
Street Stock kicked the night off with the first race of the night. As Brian Wall and Donnie Martin would battle each other hard for the lead bump and bang on each other. While Brian Wall would pull off the win and get his second win of the season.
Next up would be Sportsman, we’ll fast forward to the closing laps when John Holleman would bump Zack Clifton for the lead and go on to pick up his fourth win of the season.
Now time for the Main Event the O’Reilly Auto Parts 100, Burt Myers would lead the field to the green as he drew the pole. While there wasn’t much action to talk about here as Burt held the lead for the entire race and went on to picking up his 73rd career victory at the Madhouse and tying the legendary Junior Miller for second all time in wins there.
After the modified race, fans got to watch the Monster Truck Car Crushing Exhibition.
Time for the second Sportsman race, Zack Clifton would start on the pole for this one. As tempers would rise when Taylor Branch and Tommy Neal make contact and send Neal spinning, while Tommy would wait for Branch and repay the favor. While Zack Clifton would go on to win this race but would fail post-race tech and be disqualified making John Holleman the winner. And with Holleman winning both races, my buddy Justin Mincey tells me that this make Holleman the 11th different driver to pull this accomplishment off in the 45 year history of the Sportsman Division.
Zack Staley won the first 15-lap Stadium Stock race and Wesley Thompson won the second 15-lapper.
Be sure you check out next week’s action as it will be the Fox8 100 as well as $2 ladies night, there will be a twin 20 for Sportsman, plus Street Stock and Stadium. Also remember your rain checks from July 8th will be honored this weekend!
