Oberle, Lines win sixth race each in Thunder Stocks, Modifieds
PLYMOUTH (JULY 22, 2017) – It was a night of giving Saturday at Plymouth Speedway for its Christmas in July special events, as the track teamed up with Plymouth FOP Lodge #195 to help raise money to assist less fortunate kids have a great Christmas – part of the annual “Shop with a Cop and Emergency Services” program. Four more children will be able to shop this year, thanks to the generous donations of the speedway and its fans. Hundreds are helped annually in the Marshall County community.

Following bike races for kids at intermission, racing got underway. Quite a few laps were run under yellow for the Super Streets at the Playground of Power. Gary’s Shaun Wiltjer battled Lowell’s Ron Wilkes for second for about three laps, until he finally moved past Wilkes on lap 9. Leading the pair was Calvin Peek, Jr. of Hobart. Continuous yellow flags led to a yellow/checkered finish. “Don’t want to win like that, we’d rather win under green,” Peek said, of his first-place win. Wiltjer was second with Wilkes third.
Next up was the Thunder Stocks. “Superman” Sheldon Oberle led all laps, taking the win. Second place went to Chris Joseph of Kewanna and third was South Bend’s Shane Sanders.
Complete with red cape and Superman shirt under his firesuit, Battleground’s Oberle won his second race in as many weeks, his sixth of the season total.  “I didn’t want any of those cautions,” Oberle said. “Felt the 57 right behind me and worked out for us I guess.”
Last year’s track champion Sanders was on the winner’s podium for the first time this year, and said, “We missed set up and just couldn’t get a run.”
Warsaw’s Dylan Woodling led the Modifieds until lap 8, when Lake Village’s Jamie Lomax stole the top spot. Lomax looked to be in good shape for the win, until the last lap – actually about the last quarter of a lap – when Marion’s Randy Lines stole the show on a last second pass in a photo finish for the win.
Lines, who came from ninth starting position on 25 green flag laps, had to ask who won the race when he exited his car. “I really didn’t know who won the race. I was paying attention to lapped traffic and didn’t even know what lap we were on.”
Lomax was second and Woodling finished third. This was Lines’ fifth win in a row and sixth of the season, as well. Only Garrett Saunders of Lakeville in the Pro Sprints has more wins, with seven.
The last race of the evening saw many familiar faces from the Pro Sprints series taking part in the 600 Open, since the Pro Sprints had the night off.

Lakeville’s Eric Saunders and Plymouth’s Zane DeVault started in the first and fourth positions, with Nappanee’s Kevin Hapner in second and Warsaw’s Trey Johnson in third. During a caution, Saunders pitted and started at the tail end of the lead lap.
Johnson, who earned his first track win last week, found the lead again and took the checkers for the second time. Second place was Hapner and third was Granger’s Chad Hartzell. “This really means a lot, we needed a couple wins here,” Johnson said.
Earlier in the night, the Mini Wedge race was won by Justin White of Stevensville, Mich. with Ryin Zelmer of Eau Claire, Mich. in second and Ben Fultz of West Lafayette in third.
Next Saturday night is autograph night at Plymouth Speedway, with all classes: Modifieds, 600 Open, Thunder Stocks, Super Streets, Pro Sprints and Mini Wedge. Gates open at 4 p.m.; heats at 6 and racing at 7. Cost is $12 for adults; children 6-12 $5 and 5 and under free. Pit passes are $30.

Trey Johnson celebrates his first 600 Open win at Plymouth Speedway Saturday night.
PLYMOUTH (JULY 15, 2017) – Modified drivers took the first lap four-wide, giving Playground of Power Plymouth Speedway fans lots of excitement Saturday night.
Eighteen cars took the green after an early caution, as Randy Lines pulled away from Brian Post and Devin Wright. As many cautions as laps (three), racing was a go again for awhile, and Lafayette’s Matt Mitchell found himself in solid second. Valparaiso’s Frank Marshall was a man on the move, finishing third.
In the end, it was a dominant performance by Marion’s Lines that earned him the win. “There was pretty much moisture from top to bottom here,” Lines said, of being able to run any line on the track Saturday night. “Wish we could have stayed green, I may have had a shot at Randy,” Mitchell said.

“We had a good run going late,” Marshall explained. “It was just about to get real exciting with lapped traffic and stuff, but those early cautions stopped us.”

Plymouth’s Tom Grall found trouble on the first corner of the first lap, and rode a flat tire until a caution at lap 4 in the Thunder Stock series. Grall hit the pits, and just 16 cars remained of the 21-car field.

Grall got the tire changed while under caution and started from the back when the race went green, with South Bend’s Bryan Banta in the lead. Hobart’s Kevin Kerlin kept inching closer, and on lap 12, another caution came out as “Superman” Sheldon Oberle had worked his way from 10th starting spot to third. Within two laps, Oberle was second, and slid into first with three laps to go, ultimately taking the checkers.

 “He gave me a good run for my money,” Oberle said of Banta. “Hard to beat that car,” Banta responded. Oberle said he planned on giving away his first-place trophy, and also passed out Superman shirts to fans.

The Mini Wedge race was won by Jake Rush of Lakeville. Sonja Driesens of Grand Rapids was second and Clinton Hunter of Kokomo was third.

Lakeville’s Garrett Saunders showed early domination of his own in the Pro Sprints race.

Plymouth’s Zane DeVault was steady in second and Osceola’s John Gurley was solid in third in the no-caution green to checker race. Nine cars finished the 20-lap feature.
“It’s cool to go caution free,” Saunders said. “The car was really good. I knew Zane was right there on me. When we were all out there and we got into lapped traffic, we weren’t even turning any RPMs.”
DeVault said of his run, “It was a good car; the cushion devolved more than we thought.”
Gurley said, “It’s like homecoming for the Gurley family here. I wish we would have had a better showing. We lost a couple cylinders about halfway through. This is just a team effort. We’ll keep working on it, and I promise you boys, one of these days we’re going to be in the top spot.”
The night’s finale of the 600 Open went five laps before a caution came out, with Granger’s Chad Hartzell in the lead. At lap 7, Doug Nichols ended up upside down while running in the eighth position. Another caution at lap 10 was an unlucky one for Hartzell, as he was involved and went to the back, then lost power for good and had to leave the race. Warsaw’s Trey Johnson took the lead at green, and easily led the rest of the field. Fowler’s Andy Hall was second and Kevin Hapner of Nappanee was third.

First-time winner Johnson said “It feels awesome; we’ve been working on this for two years and finally got one.” Regarding Hartzell’s bad luck, Johnson said, “He’s hard to beat.”
