Wooster's J R Gentry outraced Jerry Aber into turn one at the start of the Malcuit Tavern Super Late Model main and would lead all the way for his fourth win of the season aboard the El Campesino Restaurent, Holmes Pest Control and Skurts Custom Apparel #14. The closing laps got interesting though as quick timer Doug Drown was on the move from his 17th starting spot, which he had to start at because of a mishap in the heat race that put him pitside. Gentry's straightaway lead was wiped out on lap 22 for debris on the track putting Drown on his bumper. When the green flag reappeared for the final three circuits, Gentry pulled away for the win. The race for third was a close one as Aber held off Brett Bee and Larry Bellman in the closing laps and crossed the finish line in that order as Aber and Bee recorded their best finishes of the year. A pair of #14's, Gentry and Corey Conley captured the heat races.
Starting on the pole, Mark Gardiner set the pace for the 1st six laps of the CORBON Ammunition Modified feature with D J Cline trying to find a way to get around Gardiner. Starting in the 7th slot, Mansfield's Kyle Moore worked his way past Cline for second on lap five and overpowered Gardiner two circuits later and then drove away aboard the Kepling Floors, Moore Brothers Racing and Arnold Motorsports #11* to post his 8th Modified win at WCS this season. Cline finished second for the fourth time as last weeks winner, Colton Shaw finished third in the caution free feature. Tristan Bickford and Ron Miller filled out the top five. Moore bagged the heat win.
Chase Alexander took control in the early stages of the McKenzie Concrete Super Stock feature as Took Wiles, Don Rutt and Paul Holmes dueled for second as the field was kept in tight quarters with caution flags on laps five and six. Just like in the Modified feature, Kyle Moore worked his way to the to third on lap four from his 8th starting position. Leading, Alexander tagged the guardrail in turn two to bring out the caution as he went pitside to have his car checked out. As the green waved again, Moore and the R C Kuhn & Sons, McKenzie Concrete and CORBON Ammunition #21d, swiped the lead away from Took Wiles and set sail for his 5th Super Stock checkered flag. Wiles kept Holmes at bay for second as Tyler Wiles and Don Baney rounded out the top five. Heat winners were Alexander and Moore. This was the 1st night of the Shortstop Summer Series.
The early portion of the JOYRIDE Transport Mini Stock feature saw many lead changes during a lap and at one time was four wide down the backstretch for the top spot. Ryan Carder was credited with leading the opening four laps before Kyle Petit snared it for one circuit as he would give way to Doug Hensel for the next four laps. Johnny Bruce and Loudonville's Jordan James was also in the mix for the lead. Late in the race though, Carder and Bruce's cars would come up lame. James slipped past Hensel with three laps to go and hang on for his 7th win of the season aboard the Troutman Kutz-N-Kennels, Harris Automotive and Lochevale Farms #83. Hensel finished second with Petit claiming third and Kevin Markey and Mitch Reichard securing fourth and fifth. James and Carder notched the heat wins.
The VARC cars were on hand displaying their sharp looking vintage vehicles.
All the drivers were chasing the O'Reilly's Auto Parts 'Race to the Championship' points and the Contingency Connection 'Racer's Rewards' for the night and yearly prizes.
Next Saturday, August 7th will be the Don & Hans Gross Memorial for the Super Late Models with $3,000 going to the winner. The Sprints, Modifieds, Super Stocks and the Mini Stocks will also be on the racing card. Gates will open at 3 pm and racing at 7 pm
