Well it was a chilly overcast day but those who came to M-40 got to see a show.Even though the weather was not too nice.The racers and fans came to see racing and were able to keep the weather nice enough to get in the nights events before it turned ugly.The Giving Kids Hope Inc./Racing4 Kids car was on hand to give a lucky kid a ride along during the National Anthem the car circled the track with the flag in the hand of the youngster.Which I thought was kind of cool.

The qualifying started off with the Pure Stock where Fast Josh Colburn was on top once again.The Pro Stocks were topped by Jerry Zachary,Then the Late Models where Jeff Ganus once again topped the chart as the fastest car of the night.

The heats were next as the Pure Stocks had 2 heats that were won by Josh Colburn and Justin Holden.Pro Stocks had there heat next Josh Smith won again this week(2 weeks in a row).Next Late Model driver Brandon Lyons took the heat win.With that heats in the books the track decided to have a little fun and instead of intermission they treated us to a little race called Australian pursuit with the Pure Stocks getting the call for 8 laps of fun.Darin Rife gets the win and has fun doing it .

This week the Pro Stocks get to start out the Feature events for  the night.Jeff Ganus takes the lead on lap # 11.Then Brandon Zachary takes the lead away on lap18.Thomas Fisher into second on lap # 22...Your fast Qualifier wins, JERRY ZACHARY wins holding off a fast charging  Thomas Fisher who finished second (from the tail after a black flag on lap 5) followed by Jeff Ganus,visiting racer Ron Houston,and Rich Mersereau rounding out the top five
Pure Stocks got the call next were we seen Darin Rife jump out to the early lead then on lap 10 Tim Thurston (last weeks winner) takes the lead.On lap 11 the second and third place cars spin bring out the caution.Rife taps out claiming blame and Todd Taylor gets spot back.Thurston still in the lead but fast Colburn up to second as they race door handle to door handle for several laps until Colburn finally gets Thurston with 4 to go..JOSH.COLBURN wins with Tim Thurston,
Todd Taylor,Tony Stewart and  the new guy Tommy Hamiliton finishing off the top 5 .

The fast Late Models come rolling out as the weather starts looking a little worse.Last weeks winner John Long jumps out to the early lead But Brandon Zachary and Jeff Ganus get to the outside and are coming fast.Then on lap seven Zachary passes around Long with Ganus on his bumper.Fast qualifier Jeff Ganus now running second and trying everything to get the lead from Brandon Zachary.Finally on lap #14 he gets around him.Ganus takes off with Zachary and Long running  second and third till lap 37 of 40 when something breaks in John Long ride ending the chance for a repeat of last week' win for him, caution comes out with 3 to go. They all line back up.Ganus takes off and JEFF GANUS gets the win with Brandon Zachary and (First time out this year )Gary Wyrick Jr. taking third,Matt Kryowinski and Terry Lombardi finishing off the top Five cars....
By now the weather is getting worse but our fans held off Mother Nature long enough to get the show completed.
Everyone enjoy there long week end and don`t forget to thanks a veteran when you see one.Happy Memorial day
