Garber claims Firecracker 125 Victory

7/6/13

By:  Montana Raceway Park

 

The 2013 Firecracker SLM was full of fireworks that set MRP ablaze this weekend.

 

The night started off with the Bandoleros and Brock Denney setting the fast time yet again with a 16.0034.  The 00 of Tyler Emond took home the trophy in the Trophy Dash.  Brock Denney came back in the Heat to win, as well as getting the checkered in the Main Event.

 

The Bomber division was as fun and exciting as always. Wes Mijies set the fast time of the night with a 16.885, with Josh Norris only one thousandths of a second behind him.

It was Bill McCallum who was able to capture the trophy in the Trophy Dash, and carried this through to make it a clean sweep of the Bomber class this night.  He scored the win in the heat race and main event as well.  Maybe we need to look at a bounty on this guy as well.

 

Well the Bounty has been posted:  Casey Brandt is a wanted man, anyone who can beat him will receive an extra bonus for doing so.  Dustin Martel laid down a fast time of 14.858, five hundredths faster than Casey, then pulled out the Win during the trophy dash.  It looked as if Dustin was going to be more than a match for Casey tonight.  Will Voth was able to capture the “B” heat win, while it was Casey back to the front in the “A” heat.  Martel held the lead for a large portion of the Main but with a handful of laps to go, Dustin lost the lead and his chance for some extra cash.  Casey pulled off his 4th win in a row, show up for the next Hobby Stock race and see what happens, will it be more cash to beat or will Casey continue his win streak?

 

The Super Late Models took to the track for Montana Raceway Parks Firecracker 125.  The number 88 of Cory Wolfe set the fastest qualifying time of a 13.210 with a large group of ten veteran drivers within about a tenth of second of him.  During the Trophy Dash, returning Washington driver, Dave Garber was the man out front at the checkered flag.  It was Kalispell driver Troy Schweigert winning the “B” Heat and Trevor Emond of Canada, who won the “A” Heat.

 

The Main Event proved to be as exciting and the sparks were flying, as every SLM driver was running hard and vying for position.   During the early stage of the race several drivers took a shot at the lead position.  By the midpoint of the race it was Dave Garber out front leading through the countdown to the checkered.  Trevor Emond gave chase and during several restarts, gave Garber all he could handle, yet Garber was able to hold on to the lead position and win the Firecracker 125.  Trevor Emond is 2nd, Agni Howell is 3rd, Bodie Morton is 4th and Alex Lessor, 5th completing the top 5.

 

As the final race before the Montana 200, what a showing, still no clear favorite has risen to the top.  Come and see all of the action at this year’s MT 200, racing on July 19th and 20th, Practice is on Thursday July 18th all day, come and catch all of the activities from practice to the crowning of this year’s champion, at Montana Raceway Park.  Tickets are on sale and are still available at montanaracewaypark.com.
