Parish, Gallagher, Beckner and Morrow Take Spartan Wins on Brian Heeney Memorial Night

 

By Duane Turner, Mason, MI: Jason Parish from Eaton Rapids, MI scored a $2200 payday when he led all 100 laps of the Brian Heeney Memorial presented by Performance Automotive Northwest at Spartan Speedway. Maverick Morrow grabbed the win in the Enduro Figure 8 race, while Laura and Brian Beckner took victories in the Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stock “B” and “A” features. Jim Gallagher, Marc Long, and David Kelley scored the wins in the Lipari Foods Spartan Stock “A”, “B”, and “C” features.

 

The Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stocks would see Ken Dollarhite Jr take the early lead with Laura Beckner and Jarin Larner in tow. On the third lap Beckner would take over the top position, with Larner, and Ryan Hollister following in to second and third. As the lead trio pulled away from the field, Hollister would take the runner up spot with seven laps to go. At the finish, Beckner would grab the win with Hollister and Larner the top three. The A-feature, Brian Boesel took the early lead, with the rest of the field still two by two. On the third lap, John Ward Jr would grab the lead, with Tyler Heeney close behind. With ten laps in, and three car battle for the lead with Ward, Heeney and Brian Beckner. Just past the half way point, Beckner would take over the lead, as Ward would fall back to third. Lex Jarecki reeled in the top three making it a four-car battle for the lead with ten laps to go. At the finish Beckner would take the win, with Heeney, and Jarecki in the top three.

 

The ICAR Modifieds 100 lap Brian Heeney Memorial would be lead by Jason Parish from the outside front row. Spartan Speedway point leader Dan Loughan would hold on to second for much of the race, but would be spun out 70 laps in. Fast timer Nick Clemens moved in to second with 20 laps to go, but was unable to mount a challenge for the lead. Parish would take the victory, with Clemens in second. Travis Eddy, Chris Stearns, and Kyle Drake rounded out the top five.

 

The Lipari Foods Spartan Stock C-feature would see David Kelley and Lonnie York pull away from the rest of the field. When the checkers flew, Kelley would take the win, followed by York, and Justin Rodriguez. Tyler Hawkins took the early point in the B-feature, followed by James Gokee Jr and Darrell Taylor. On a lap four restart, Gokee Jr would take the point, with Rob Newman following in to second. With ten laps in, Rob Newman would take the lead, then Marc Long would come from fourth, to the inside and to the lead. At the checkers, Long takes the win, followed by Greg Studt and Newman.

 

The Lipari Foods Spartan Stock A-feature, Jordan Harvey jumped out to the early lead. Pat Dent and Lou Stremme would follow in second and third with Damon Place taking third just four laps in. On the fifth lap, Dent would take the point from Harvey with Place close in third. With 11 laps in, Place would get by Harvey to take the runner up position. As the field approached the half way point, Craig Stevens slipped in to third, with John Kennedy following in to fourth. A caution would bunch the field back up on lap 21, as Place would take over the lead, and Kennedy in to third. With 18 laps to go, Place would spin in turn four, handing the lead back to Dent. On the restart, Kennedy settled in to second, with Jim Gallagher in third. With 13 laps to go, Gallagher would spin in four, moving Long in to second, and Kennedy in third for the restart. With 10 to go, Long and Dent would make contact, sending both in a spin, forcing them to restart at the tail. Kennedy would inherit the lead, with Gallagher back in to second. With the laps winding down, Gallagher would move to the high side, and the front duo would race side by side to the checkers. Gallagher would take the win by a nose over Kennedy, with Stephens in third.

 

The Enduro Figure eight would see 16 cars take the green flag. Hugh Brayton took the early lead, with Maverick Morrow in a close second, but would take the lead on lap two. Kelly Hollister would move in to third, just as a red flag would wave.  After the red, Brayton would retake the lead in heavy lapped traffic. Lap eight, Morrow would move back to the lead as Brayton got caught on a lapped car. Lap 15, Brayton would take the lead again when Morrow had to back off in the intersection. One lap later, Morrow would lead again as Brayton would break, ending his race. Hollister would now be second, but a half lap down. At the finish, Morrow would take the commanding win, with Hollister in second, but with a motor blowing up. Jared Smith would grab third.

 

Up next at “The Track The Stars Call Home”, The Performance Automotive Northwest Modifieds, Lipari Foods Spartan Stocks, Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stocks, Sawyers Chevrolet Michigan legends and the mini cups will do battle on the ¼ mile on Friday, July 31st.
