Season Championships This Saturday at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis
(Plymouth, IN) It’s time to crown champions in the four divisions of racing at Plymouth Speedway. Drivers in the Dickies Restaurant 600 Sprints, Swan Lake Resorts UMP Modifieds, Super Streets, and Thunder Stocks have worked hard all season for this night. While three of the four division’s top spots have been decided, that won’t mean that the battle for the positions in the rest of the standings won’t be any less heated. The Thunder Stock division will be decided in this Saturday’s feature at the Playground of Power.
The Warsaw Hall of Fame presentations, sponsored by Sparkman Auto Sales of Warsaw, are planned during the intermission of this weekend’s action. This Saturday, stock car drivers Jerry Baker, Tom Beezley, Jim Bucher, Bruce Hogue, Art Leiter, Alan Marsh, Ron McKenzie, Don Prater and John White will honored. Art Smith, Dick Leiter and Lore Lee Sherman will be posthumously honored.
Just because the season is coming to a close that doesn’t mean all racing activity will stop on the track for the year. In October, the World Series of Dirt is planned with the Sprints on Dirt Series (SODS) season championships, plus the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds, Super Streets, Thunder Stocks, and Dickies Restaurant 600 Sprints. Practice will be on Oct. 3 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and admission is free. Racing will be on Oct. 4 with hot laps at 2 p.m. and racing at 5 p.m. ET.
We’ll see you this Saturday for the season championships!

 

Bob Newton Classic One to Remember at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis
(Plymouth, IN) It was a night to honor a pioneer in racing and the four features that ran at the Playground of Power Saturday night made the Bob Newton Classic a night to remember. The Newton family came to the track to watch the excitement. Joyce Newton, who worked with her husband Bob to start Hoosier Tire, was there with members of her family and cheered on the drivers with the many fans in attendance for the Bob Newton Classic at Plymouth Speedway.
The Dickies Restaurant 600 Sprints found Billy Cribbs the early leader. Garrett Saunders had slipped back slightly in the pack at the start of the race but began working his way to the front. By lap 11, Saunders worked from sixth to the third position. He was attempting to pass Brad Nichols for the second position but ran out of laps. Pole-sitter and points leader Billy Cribbs won the feature with Brad Nichols in the second spot and Garrett Saunders rounding out the top three. “It’s been a good season,” said Cribbs. “We were kind of behind in the beginning of the season and then got into a groove where we were consistent.”
The Sprints on Dirt Series packed power in their feature Saturday night. Eyes were on Randy Hannagan who last won when the series visited Plymouth Speedway in May. However, heavy-hitters Dustin Daggett and Gregg Dalman started on the front row and showed great speed in the beginning of the race. It was Daggett and Dalman in the first and second position until lap 15 when a caution came out for an off-track medical emergency. Just as the caution came out Daggett spun and the leader got a flat right rear tire. He went into the pits and was scored in the tenth position which was the last car on the lead lap,when the field went back to green. The race was red-flagged for a period of time as the ambulance had to leave the track to take that person to the hospital. By rule, an ambulance has to be at the track before an event can be resume. After the ambulance arrived, the flattening tires on the Winged Sprints were filled and the track went green. Dalman continued to lead but a caution on lap 18 bunched up the field and allowed Ryan Ruhl to get a run on the leading Dalman and went on to win the race. Dalman came in second while May’s winner Randy Hannagan was third. “I’ve been racing Daggett pretty hard this season and his bad luck was my gain,” said Ruhl. “I had a great run on Dalman there at the end and I got the win. I had a great time racing here tonight.”
The Swan Lake Resorts UMP Modifieds had a new driver on top of the podium. Michael Thayer started on the pole and was able to hold off the field for his first win of the season. Dylan Woodling stayed right behind him and made a move to get the first spot on lap 10 but Thayer had the stronger car. Meanwhile, Frank Marshall was moving through the field despite a damaged race car. He moved his way to the third spot after starting 7th and didn’t have enough to catch Woodling in the closing laps. Former Kalamazoo champion Andy Bozell started fourth but had car issues and finished in the 19th position. Points leader Jamie Lomax also exited the race early and finished in the last position. The podium found Michael Thayer on the top spot with Dylan Woodling second and Frank Marshall third. “I feel awesome!” smiled Thayer. “It’s great to be back at Plymouth Speedway and thank you to all of the fans for being here on this special night.”

The Super Streets were on the schedule as the last feature of the night where Michael Clark dominated the field. Calvin Peek, Jr. had the early lead and was pulling away from the field when he made a mistake coming out of turn three and traveled through the inner track. He re-entered the field in the fifth position. Clark then assumed the lead with Peek Jr. quickly setting his sights back to the front. Peek Jr. got to the third position by lap 12 and had the second spot by the 14th lap. Kory Conner was running in the second position and traveled up the racetrack coming out of turn four on lap 16 and slapped the front stretch wall. That allowed Peek Jr. to move to the second position. Peek didn’t have what it would need to hunt down Clark for the lead. Michael Clark continued in his winning ways with Calvin Peek, Jr. in second and Kory Conner in third. “This trophy feels just like the championship trophy to me,” said Clark after solidifying his championship in the Super Streets Division. “This is awesome. I’ll bring back my Super Street in 2015 here to Plymouth Speedway - my home track.”

The Plymouth Speedway season comes to a close on Aug. 23 when all of the regular divisions will be back to put on the best show yet at the fastest dirt track in Northern Indiana. The gates will open at 4:00pm and racing begins at 7:00pm ET.
