Hobby Stock King of Hill and Kid’s Money Grab
Last Saturday night was a thriller at ACS for Chat Mobility Night with kid’s money grab during intermission. Many youngsters lined up on the front stretch to fill their pockets with change. Saturday night also marked the beginning of the King of the Hill races at ACS. This year’s King of the Hill races take on a different format. Rather than the traditional one seed versus eight seed match up, the driver eighth in points now has the opportunity to call out the driver he wants in the first round, and so on to set the field for the event.
Baker Powers Past Kinser
John Kinser put on an impressive performance in the Keystone Light Kompacts after his previous car was totaled in a rollover two weeks ago. Kinser came out with a new car, looking for his first win. Joe Baker had something to say about that. Baker started shotgun on the field and charged his way through the field engaging in an exciting battle with Kinser. Baker was finally able to clear Kinser with just a few laps to go to secure the win. Evan Hrabik beat Kinser to the line for second followed by Logan Richards fourth and Bobby Key fifth.
Sink Caps Off Perfect Weekend, Makes One Man $4,000 Richer
On Friday night Josh Sink went out to the I-80 Speedway and battled hard with Ryan Jenkins to pick up the win. Sink made it a perfect weekend capturing the win in the Stalker Chevrolet B-Mods. Sink started in the sixth position and quickly found himself in second place behind Dylan Book. A bobble by Book allowed Sink to take the lead and hold off a hard charging Jake Hobscheidt to collect the win. Jenkins finished third, Kody Havens fourth and Cody Werner fifth. Josh Sink’s sixth place starting position meant that Troy Clark was able to capture $4,000 ($800 Cash, $3200 Certificate of Deposit) courtesy of the Malvern Bank Jackpot.
Ramsey Gets Record Tying Win
Luke Ramsey is having a historic season at the Adams County Speedway. Saturday night he picked up his 7th win of the season in the Chat Mobility Hobby Stocks tying the record for most wins in a season in that class previously held by Les Elliott and Jeremy Purdy. Ramsey battled with Greg Gilbert for the lead while lurking close behind was Andy Davison, driving Luke’s brand new Eliminator Chassis. Andy and Luke battled relentlessly for the lead with Luke barely nudging Davison at the line for the win. Gilbert came home third followed by Jerid Lund fourth and Kenny Champ fifth.
Rold Picks Up Win in New Car
It was just Jason Rold’s second night at ACS in his new #96 Terminator Chassis. In his second race at ACS since his accident at the Tradition last year, and it was also a win for Rold in the Northland Oil Pro-stocks. Trouble occurred for championship contenders early on when leader Butch Bass spun out in front of the field, leading to mayhem behind him where Cody Clark and Glen Hoyt suffered severe damage. Hoyt was unable to finish the night, but Clark rallied in an attempt to preserve some points. While all of this was going on, Greg Miller and Jason Rold put on a show. Rold was able to clear Miller and bring the his new car to victory lane. Miller chipped into Clark’s point lead with a runner-up finish followed Clark third, Kevin Sharp fourth and David Nail Jr. fifth.
Mafia Goes 1-2 For Second Week in A Row
Two weeks ago the Van Eatonville Mafia went 1-2 with Todd Van Eaton collecting the win followed by Jeff James in second. The script was flipped Saturday as James got his first win at ACS in 2016. An accident on the start of the race collected Jeff Wiggins, John Davis, Dustin Jarillo, Luke Hansen and Cody Bristow. James received rear cosmetic damage, but was able to drive away. On the restart James took the lead from TJ Patterson and never looked back collecting the win in dominating fashion with his teammate Todd Van Eaton in the runner-up spot. John Davis rallied from the early race mayhem to finish third followed by point leader Dylan Book fourth and TJ Patterson fifth.
“Wild Child” Dominates
Sterling Perkins has been very close to victory lane twice in the last five weeks in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Late Models. Perkins finally caught the break he needed on Saturday night and was able to collect the win. An early race accident between Colton Leal and point leader John Hampel left Hampel’s #2 Predator Trailers Black Diamond Chassis looking as if it was ready for the salvage yard. The accident occurred when Leal went around in turn two, and Hampel had nowhere to go. After the caution, Perkins muscled the lead away from Robbie Andersen and rode the high side to victory lane. Andersen finished second followed by new point leader Paul Glendenning third, Jeremy Grady fourth and Daulton Maassen fifth.
Ramsey King of Hobby Stock Hill
As if Luke Ramsey wasn’t already having a great night he prevailed in the Hobby Stock King of Hill reclaiming his crown from last year. In the first round of the new callout format; Chris Bates defeated Jerry Richards, Keil Brittain bested Jesse Lund, David Weeda defeated Tom Myers in “The Battle of Experience” and Luke Ramsey was victorious over Jerid Lund. In the semi-finals Keil Brittain defeated Chris Bates and Luke Ramsey defeated David Weeda setting up a battle of family bragging rights for the right to be named Hobby Stock King of The Hill. Ramsey held off a late charge from Brittain to reclaim his crown.
Old Favorite Returns To ACS
Saturday saw something return to Adams County Speedway as the drivers were given the opportunity for “Grudge Matches” at the end of the night. All drivers have to do is call out a driver for a two lap King of the Hill style race. Saturday four drivers seized the opportunity. Big brother Jerid “The Outlaw” Lund did as big brothers usually do defeated little brother “The Law” Jesse Lund. The second match saw a battle of Ramsey cars. Luke Ramsey versus Andy Davison, while pro-stock driver Cody Clark joined in on the fun and settling a discussion from the pits.
