Morton grabs the checkers Saturday night

By:  Montana Raceway Park PR

 

 

9/4/2013-  The 2013 Black Star Beer and Penco Power Products Super Late Model 100 night at the races was filled with the racing action and excitement that the Montana Raceway Park fans have come to expect.

 

The Hornet division put on yet another great show for the fans.  Alex Mehall set the fast time of the night with a 17.703.  Keith Sheppard captured the trophy in the Trophy Dash.  Alex Mehall was able to get back out front for the heat race.  The main event was a fun battle between Alex and Kaden Stinger, but Alex Mehall was able to pull out the win.

 

The Legends were back and on a mission this week, with Devin Clayton setting the fast time with a 15.069.  During the Trophy Dash, it was Pro driver Devin Clayton again, who added a trophy to his mantle.  Devin Clayton brought the win in the heat race and he would go on to make the night a clean sweep win the Main Event, over the other drivers, Tristan Corpron, who finished 2nd and Monty Sosnowski who finished 3rd.

 

Troy Pilgram set the fast time of the night for the Flathead Beacon Bombers with a 16.614, with Bill Warburton only hundreths of a second behind him.  It was Bill McCallum who was able to capture the trophy in the Trophy Dash.  Chris Warburton filled in for his dad and was able to win the Heat race, but with dad back in the car for the main, things changed back to Troy’s favor.  Troy Pilgram was able to score the win in main event and back up his fast time of the night with the big Trophy.

 

The Super Late Models took to the track for the 100 lap main event.  The number 53 of Alex Lessor set the fastest qualifying time of a 12.993 with a large group of talented veteran drivers driving in right behind him.  During the Trophy Dash, it was returning Canadian driver, Trevor Emond who was the man out front at the checkered flag.  It was Kalispell driver Brandon Sickler who won the  “B” Heat and Dave Garber of Washington, who won the “A” Heat.

 

The SLM Main Event proved to be as tough a battle as ever witnessed by spectators at MRP, as every SLM driver was fighting hard for every inch of track they could grab.   During the early stage of the race several drivers took a shot at the lead position.  By the midpoint of the race it was Bodie Morton out front leading through the countdown to the checkered.  Dave Garber is 2nd, Agni Howell is 3rd, Alex Lessor is 4th and Clint Habart completing the top 5.

 

Racing continues this week with The Bubba Blackwell Jump, presented by Miller Lite, Jesco Marine and Power Sports and Gardners RV.  All the action starts on Saturday with Practice at 3pm, Qualifying at 6pm and Racing at 7pm.  For the most up to date information on Montana Raceway Park log onto montanaraceway.com or like us on Facebook.
