Schultz takes $1,000 prize
Terry Schultz drove home Friday night $1,000 richer.
The Sedalia resident survived six caution flags to win the street stocks special feature race at LA Raceway.
He used one of those caution flags to overcome a lap-three mistake.
Schultz, who started in the front row, lost control of his car on turns three and four and fell to fourth place, according to LA Raceway spokesperson Rachel Knight.
However, a car spun on the same lap, bringing out a caution flag, Knight said. The lineup reverted back to the beginning of the third lap, putting Schultz back up front.
Schultz maintained the lead throughout with pole-sitter Marc Carter placing second, Scott Krause taking third,
Troy Reasoner finishing fourth and Jerry Schmidt placing fifth.
Danny Everts, of Knob Noster, and Brian Ziegler, of Bates City, built on their points leads in the hobby stocks and B-modified classes, respectively.
Everts won a duel against Michael Tyler to take the hobby stocks final.
Tyler took the early lead before Everts passed him on the sixth lap, and Everts never lost the lead, according to Knight.
Tyler finished second, Miranda Arnold third, Jacob Estes fourth and Chuck Coffey fifth.
Everts leads second-place Tyler by 190 points and third-place Arnold by 198.
Ziegler led from beginning to end to win the B-modified feature race, Knight said.
Hammer Williams, the pole-sitter, was second, Ethan Isaacs third, Gary Lewis fourth and Chad Hickam fifth.
Ziegler’s lead grew to 281 points over second-place Ernie Walker.
Ryan Schlender won his fifth 305 sprints feature race of the season. He won a race that featured eight of the 15 cars not finishing.
J. Kinder was second, George Jacobs third, Mike Schouten fourth and Tyler Utz fifth.
Central Missouri Speedway
Dustin Boney passed leader Jason Thompson on the eighth lap and won a four-lap race to the finish Saturday night to win the modifieds class at Central Missouri Speedway near Warrensburg.
When Boney passed Thompson in the 20-lap race, the two stayed close because of heavy lapped traffic, track spokesman Sam Stoecklin said. However, a caution flag on lap 16 gave the drivers a fresh start.
Boney, of Basehor, Kan., pulled away from the field with Thompson placing second, Dave Meyer taking third, Aaron Marrant finishing fourth and Dennis Walrath placing fifth.
Bob King won the United Late Models Association feature race, which featured start-and-stop driving on the closing laps.
King, of Independence, worked his way through the field late to pass leader Randy Ainsworth, but one of several caution flags gave the lead back to Ainsworth, Stoecklin said.
King eventually passed Ainsworth to become the 10th different late model winner of the season, according to Stoecklin.
Ainsworth finished second, Bob Test third, Danny Monroe fourth and Dwight Niehoff fifth.
Brian Johnson held off Chad Eickleberry to win the street stocks final.
The drivers, who started on the front row, distanced themselves quickly from the rest of the field, Stoecklin said.
After two red flags and one yellow, Johnson, of Independence, pulled ahead of Eickleberry but couldn’t gain any separation, according to Stoecklin.
Michael Mullins was third, Clayton Campbell fourth and Anthony Whitham fifth.
Brad Smith, of Belton, took the lead on lap three to win the B-modified feature race, Stoecklin said.
Jacob Ebert was second, Lucas Isaacs third, Michael King fourth and Dalton Kirk fifth.
Four-time Winged Outlaw Warriors defending champion Randy Martin hung around long enough to win Sunday night’s feature race at Double-X Speedway near California, Mo.
Kyle Bellm took the early lead and maintained it for most of the race despite a pair of mishaps that eventually ended his night on lap 19, according to Winged Outlaw Warriors spokesman Chad Buford.
Martin captured the lead and maintained it with Josh Fisher, of Smithton, driving from his No. 7 starting stop to finish second.
Fisher added to his points lead over Rusty Potter. Fisher leads Potter by 68.
