Packed House for Weekend on the Hill


September 20, 2015


            As the season comes to an end, the cooler temperatures of fall nor the Saturday showers would keep the fans or cars from packing Hilltop Speedway for the 7th Annual Weekend on the Hill. With two complete shows on the agenda including the first race for flat karts as well as a $2,000 to win in the Holmes Tire late models, fans were in for two nights of non-stop racing action.


There was a full field of Holmes Tire Lates Models with twenty-nine on Friday and twenty-two on Saturday for the $2,000 to win. Friday night’s fast qualifier was Larry Bellman, while “Flyin” Ryan Markham picked up fast time Saturday with a 14.920. Heat race winners on Friday were DJ Miller, “Fast” Freddie Carpenter and Ryan Markham. Dash winner was Mike Lonas with JP Roberts picking up the b-main. Saturday night heat race winners were Ronnie Mayle and Shane Campbell while the dash win went to Vic Hottinger and Cameron Hague won the b-main.


            Coming to the green on Friday night it was Mike Lonas who would jump out front and that is where he would remain leading every lap and picking up the win. However, as Saturday’s field approached the start, it was “Flyin” Ryan Markham taking the lead over pole sitter Vic Hottinger. With Markham out front, a three way battle for second would ensue between Hottinger, Corey Conley and Freddie Carpenter. Claiming second and placing his sights on Markham was Conley who would battle through lap traffic to the bumper of the 5M. Caution would come out with nine to go, bunching the field back up. Back under green, Markham and Conley would continue to battle side-by-side for the lead when with five to go “The Flyin Ace” Conley would take the lead as well as pick up the $2,000 to win.


The modified division had a field of twenty-six on Friday and a field of eighteen on Saturday. Setting fast time Friday was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with a 16.137, Saturday it was “The Batman” Scott Peltz with a 16.520. Friday night heat race winners were Nathon Loney and Jimmy Smith, dash winner was Chris Basich with Eric Singhaus winning the b-main. On Saturday, it was Darrick Hubbard and “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter picking up heat race wins with Kevin Morehouse picking up the dash.


            Bringing the field down the backstretch, it was Chris Basich on the pole for Friday’s feature. Basich would jump out front early and battle with “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse for the lead would ensue. Although battling side-by-side, it was Morehouse ultimately taking the lead and the win. During Saturday’s feature, it was Kevin Morehouse who would take the early lead. However, challenging and battling on Morehouse’s bumper was “The Batman” Peltz looking to take over the lead. With Peltz unable to capitalize, it was Kevin Morehouse who picked up back to back feature wins, making it his forty-seventh overall win.  


            Rolling onto the track were the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks with a field of seventeen on Friday and fourteen on Saturday. Picking up fast time on Friday was Brandon Gardner with a 16.937. Heat race wins went to David Potts and the dash win going to Mike Lonas. Setting fast time Saturday was Mike Lonas with a 17.145, while Kevin Potts picked up the heat win and Kyle Moore winning the dash.


            With the features set, Mike Lonas brought the field to the start on Friday night. Taking the lead, Lonas would be challenged by Kyle Moore multiple times. Able to take the lead on lap eight, Moore would be unable retain the top spot and fend off Lonas as he would regain the lead and pick up the win. As Saturday’s feature was brought to the green, it was Moore and Lonas on the front row. Looking for redemption from the night before, Moore would take the lead as Lonas and Matt Shroyer battled for second. Once in second, Shroyer would make an attempt to take the lead from Moore. However, contact off of four would send Shroyer pit side with a flat and Moore to the tail with only three laps to go. With the race back under way, Lonas would pick up back to back wins placing the 11A back in victory lane.


            The modlites also made an appearance this weekend with a 12-car field on Friday and a 5-car field on Saturday. Tracy Fritter and Nick Crider picked up the heat race wins on Friday while Fritter won the heat on Saturday. With the fields set, it was Tracy Fritter who would demonstrate his skill in the class as he would pick up back to back feature wins.


            The Winning Edge Auto Body mini stock division had full field of cars with twenty on Friday and fifteen on Saturday. Friday night heat race winners were Jerry Adkins, Matt Miller and Nova Martin, while Saturday night heat race winners were Kevin Markey and Brad Workman. The field was set for Friday’s feature as Jerry Adkins brought them to the green. After fending off charges from Doug Hensel, it was Adkins picking up the win. Bringing the field to the start of Saturday’s 12-lap feature event was Kevin Markey. A battle between Jason St. John and Billy Parsons would ultimately place St. John in victory lane.


The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a 6-car field on Friday and a 5-car field on Saturday. Picking up the heat race win on both Friday and Saturday was Rolly Heyder setting him on the pole for both feature events. As Heyder brought the field to the start of Friday night’s feature event he would take the lead and go on to pick up yet another win for the season. With Saturday’s feature set, it again was Rolly Heyder to the lead. However, after troubles the night before, Winterringer would challenge Heyder for the top spot. Once around Heyder, Winterringer would pull away and pick up his first career feature win.


Running a single show on Friday night and making their first appearance of the year, the flat karts had a field of 21. With three heats, winners were Chuck Conway, Brandon Gardner and Scott Delaney while Derek Davis picked up the last chance race. Bringing the field to the green was Conway, battling for the lead was Delaney who would take the top spot coming off of two. Meanwhile, working his way through the field to fifth from his tenth place starting position was Derek Davis who would unfortunately be charged with a caution and would have to again restart tail. Back under green, it was Scott Delaney to the lead and that is where he would remain as the checkered came out, picking up his first feature win at the Hill. Second went to Chuck Conway while finishing third after working back up from the tail was Derek Davis with Brandon Gardner finishing fourth and Bob Smith fifth.


On Saturday, the JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Construction mini wedges were in action with a field of 13. Heat race winners were Zoe Stafford and Karyssa Beagle, setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Jumping out front early was Stafford while Beagle and Brayden Renfrew would battle it out for second. However, after a caution at the halfway mark, Beagle would unfortunately take her wedge pit side. With the green back out, it again was Stafford to the lead as Renfrew and Braxton Wilson would run side-by-side for second. Nevertheless, after leading every lap and picking up her final win of the season at the Hill it was Zoe Stafford. Finishing second after a last lap pass was Braxton Wilson followed by Brayden Renfrew, Donnie Danley and Reece Bollinger.
