Dallas Pickelheimer wins First Ever Feature in Sport Mods as Rice Brothers take 1st and 2nd in Late Model Feature!

 

9-16-16 Williamsburg, OH - With an impending storm approaching just as hot laps were about to begin the teams and officials at Moler Raceway Park were able to breathe a sigh of relief as the track would be spared the brunt of the storm and able to get the racing program in on Friday Sept 16th which saw some Awesome racing in all Divisions including a First Time win for Dallas Pickleheimer in the Sport Mods, James Rice passing his brother Josh on the last lap of the Late Model Feature and Weasel Rhodes with a long overdue Win in the Mods!

 

The Diamond Cut Lawn Care Sportmods would see $400 on the line for the feature winner and it was Dallas Pickelheimer claiming his first ever feature win in his L&M Performance sponsored machine. After just getting the car together mid-season the driver from Amelia OH was overcome with joy in claiming his first win. BJ Branham would take home second spot in the feature event over Andy Trout with Chris Shelton Jr. and Dustin Pennington completing the top five positions. Pickelheimer and Trout won the heat races.

 

The Tarvin Auto Service Freedom 4's would also see $400 on the line for the winner and it was all Chris Vance as he would lead all 15 laps in his Northwest Transmission, Wilson Bodyshop sponsored machine. Mike Clark would come home in second position with Josh Davis, Sean Jones, and Mark Horn completing the top five spots. Clark and Vance won the heat races.

 

In the Late Model Division it was Kody Evans of Camden, Ohio and Verona, Ky's James Rice claiming heat race wins and setting the lineup for the feature event. At the green flag it was Evans out front but it was Josh Rice from his 4th starting spot on the move. By lap12 it was Josh Rice taking over the top spot in his Kuzman Racing, Sunesis Construction machine with Evans in 2nd with Josh’s brother James Rice in 3rd. Following a lap 16 restart it was James Rice getting past Evans for second position and it looked as if it was going to be Josh Rice taking the win and James Rice coming home in second but as the laps wound down it was James slowly closing the gap and when Josh slipped up just a little in turn #2 on the final lap brother James would pounce and take the top spot away as they raced off of turn #4 for the checkered flag. At the line it was James Rice taking the win by less than a car length over his brother. Bill Sheets would come home in 3rd spot with John Whitney and Evans completing the top 5 spots.

 

The Matt's Graphics UMP Modifieds would see 29 cars on hand hoping to take home the top prize. Drivers would have to race their way into the feature event.  It was Maysville, Ky's Jimmy Lennex, Winchester, Ohio's Weasel Rhoades, and Lima, Ohio's Tony Anderson taking the heat race victories while Lawrenceburg, Indiana's Cory Skipton would claim the B-main victory. In the feature event it was Weasel Rhoades jumping out front but by lap 7 it was Joey Kramer out front from his 5th starting spot. As Kramer would lead the field to the green for a restart on lap 9 Kramer would pull out of the race handing the lead back over to Rhoades. Jeff Koz would pressure Rhoades for the next few laps but an incident with a lap car on lap 17 would end his night. As the checkered waved it was the Bicycle Playing Card, Cropper Engines, Coyote Racecar of Rhoades pulling into victory lane for the first time in 2016. Adam Stricker would come home in second spot with Anderson, Lennex, and Kyle Herbert completing the top five.

 

The DRC.net Crazy Compacts would once again see a familiar face out front in their feature event as Jerry Gibson III would charge from 4th starting spot to the lead on lap #1 and would never really be pressured in the 15 lap event. Anthony Traylor would come home in second spot with Brandon Stephens, Kyle Willoughby, and Josh Hammond completing the top five spots. Willoughby and Hammond were heat race winners.

 

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series would make their only visit on the 2016 race season to MRP and it was Josh Francis out front in the feature from the beginning. Despite constant pressure from Shaun Scott throughout the race the driver from West Union, Ohio would go on to take yet another win in the Legends series Scott would come home in second position with Cole DeMint, John Gutman, and Steve Duderstadt completing the top five positions. Gutman and Duderstadt were victorious in the heat races.
