Denney Looks Like Lightning, and Clayton Wins Thunder

By: Garrett Anderson Montana Raceway Park

 

7/12/14- As the night finished under the light of the full moon another great night goes into the books. The weather held its own this time, however we still got to see “thunder” and ”lightning”. The Modified class, Hornets, Bombers, Legends, and Super stocks all raced tonight and several exciting finishes were in store as we hosted the Pepsi Cola super stock 75.

 

The Modified class opened up the night with Jimmy Jax having the fastest qualifying lap. Qualifying however, would prove to be the smoothest racing of the night for the class as the main event looked like the bumper cars at the fair as it saw 3 Modified cars leave the track due to wrecks. The class showed some variety in victory lane as Corey White Jr. won the trophy dash, Jimmy Jax won the heat, and the “Redneck” Tim Davis came away with victory in the main event.

 

 In the Hornet class Paul Basler had a big night with two victories and two trophies to show for it. Katrina Knutson set the tone with the fastest qualifying time and would go on to finish in the top three of all the other races for the class. As Kaden Stinger would take the checkers for the heat race, and Paul Basler would go on to win both the Trophy dash and the main event as stinger left the track due to mechanical issues while in a battle for the first place position with Basler.

 

 The Bomber class once again displayed the rivalry between Wes Miljies and Troy Pilgram who are locked in a heated battle for first place in points. Troy Pilgram edged out Miljies as he had the fastest qualifying lap and won the main event beating out, you guessed it Wes Miljies. Miljies won the trophy dash and Cory Reum won the heat race. The battle for the point’s title in the class is looking like its going to come down to the wire as Miljies and Pilgram exchange wins.

                                                                                                                       

The Legends got to make up the highly anticipated Legend Thunder and it was some of the most suspenseful racing the track has ever seen. Devin Clayton and Tristan Corpron were locked in a heated battle. Corpron would have the fastest qualifying time but would end up playing second fiddle to Clayton.. Clayton put on a show on his way to winning the Legend Thunder in a photo finish barely edging out Corpron. Clayton also won the A heat race. All this after sweeping in the prior attempt of running the Legend Thunder. It appears Corpron and Clayton will also be locked in a tight battle for the point’s championship in their class.

 

As for the main event the Pepsi Cola Super stock 75, it would be dominated by the young Brock Denney who had the fast time in qualifying, took second in the heat race, and won the main event a lap ahead of everyone but second place Josh Robinson. Denney looked like a blur on the track on his way to victory. Adam Kinkle and Josh Robinson would also have victories in the class in the heat and trophy dash.

 

The time is here, the biggest and baddest race at Montana Raceway Park. The 24th annual Coors Light Montana 200. The race features some of the biggest names at the track as Gomez will look to repeat as the 200 champion. This year’s 200 will also feature the Super Truck class to add to the already massive amount of anticipation. Drivers and fans have been waiting all race season to come and witness the biggest race in the state of Montana. With the 200 this week the stands will be packed and the racing will be as suspenseful as ever. So don’t miss your chance to see the big one, the 24th annual Coors Light Montana 200 this weekend at Montana Raceway Park.
