Kids win big at 1st Annual Bike Races

Kalispell, Mont. (5/28/2013) - The Memorial day weekend was kicked off in style Saturday Night. A terrific night of racing and fun unfolded at Montana Raceway as Park Parrot Bay and Nesquick presented the Memorial Weekend Spectacular!  The night featured some terrific racing and a few special things were introduced to the fans and competitors.  A new team member was added to the Raceway Park family, Dipstick the adrenaline junky moose.  Dipstick showed off his terrific dance moves and one over the youngsters that were in attendance for the first ever Kids Bike Races.  At half time kids were allowed onto the 1/4 mile high banked oval to have their chance to race.  Some tough competition, a lot of smiles, and a trophy to take home were had by all.  This night was full of close finishes and fun for the kids.

The night festivities came alive in the Bandolero class.  The Denney brothers who showed on opening night that there wouldn’t be an easy victory for the others displayed that again on Saturday.  All three races came down to the final stretch to determine the winner.  Brock took the heat and trophy dash races edging his brother out at the line each time.  However, Bryce would get the last laugh as he narrowly escaped a sweep from his brother by finishing first in the main event.  As the brothers showed their talents Taylor Awesomeness made some steady improvements as the 29 seemed to do continually better as the night went on.  The brothers Brock and Bryce are currently tied in the 2013 Bandolero division points. 
 

To continue the festivities we rolled in the Don K Hobby Stocks.  The Hobby Stock had a very different outcome than last week.  Dustin Martell rolled into the weekend holding onto first place in the point’s battle after he showed brute force winning the Main and the heat races in the season opener.  This week Martell's best finish was second however, he did have the fastest lap in time trials, as Will Voth and Rick Mitchell would have strong showings. Voth Won the heat and trophy dash races Rick Mitchell has been on the hunt for a main event win at Montana Raceway Park for a long time.  Mitchell has said that he would shave his prized beard if he won a main event in Montana.  Saturday night was the last night that Mitchell would keep his beard as he fended off Voth and Martel to claim his first main event win.  Martel comes out of the weekend leading the Don K points. 



The final class of the night was the Lucas Oil Super Stocks.  This class once again showed there is no clear front runner in the chase for the point’s championship as once again there was no racer with multiple first place finishes.   Tylor Schweigert kicked off the night setting fast time.  Schweigert drew the invert for the main event on the front stretch and drew a 10 car invert.  Bill Mitchell made the drive from the Mission Valley and picked up a trophy dash win.  Justin Drake, another Mission Valley racer won the B heat race.  Tylor Schweigert followed up his fast time with a win in the A heat race.  The main event was full of thrills and spills.  The drivers were also able to choose their position during caution periods, making the racing action even better.  In the end Alex Lessor took the top honors edging out Bodie Morton and Dalton Halden.  Tylor Schweigert leads the Lucas Oil Super Stock division by 11 points over Tyler Corpron coming out of the weekend. 

 

The action continues next weekend with the rain delayed and rescheduled 2nd Annual G.E.T. Rich at the Montana Gold 212 presented by TTC Thornton, Kalispell Toyota, Miller Lite, and the Flathead Beacon.  The night will feature 212 laps of Kalispell Toyota Super Late Model action along with the Flathead Beacon Bombers, CHS Legends, Hornets, and Bandoleros.  Time trials begin at 6 pm with racing roaring to life at 7pm.  Tickets and more information are available at montanaracewaypark.com or by liking us on Facebook.
