Bud Kaeding Wins at Chicoadmin
Two more laps were recorded until Brad Bumgarner stopped on the backstretch. With ten laps to go it was up to Kaeding not to make a mistake and keep his car glues to the sticky spots in the track. Walker tried to mount a charge and at times looked to the bottom of Kaeding but was never able to mount a successful pass for the lead. On lap 26 Colby Copeland brought out the final caution with a flat right rear. It had to put some worry into the top drivers if tire wear was going to be an issue. The green flag waived once again and it was an all out assault for the final four laps. Kaeding never faulted and was able to pull away from Walker and win the 30-lap race. Allard finished in the third spot. Brent Kaeding came home fourth and Statler was fifth. For Statler it was his second night in a row to finish in the fifth spot.
Brett Miller was the night’s hardest charger. Miller started 16th and finished eighth. To put an interesting spin on the two nights of racing for the 410 sprint cars, we took a look at Friday night’s top five finishers in the main event and compared that to Saturday night. The top five from Friday were Brent Kaeding, Jonathan Allard, Jason York, Bud Kaeding and Jason Statler. On Saturday night, those five were the top six finishers. The lone exception was second place finisher Tyler Walker who did not compete on Friday night. There were 55 laps of main event racing completed and the top five drivers were basically the same for both nights.
Allard captured his sixth fast time award of the year by turning a lap of 12.058. Robbie Whitchurch, Evan Suggs and Brent Kaeding were winners of the three heat race events. Brad Bumgarner dominated the 12-lap B feature.
Daniel Weger won an exciting 20-lap Dwarf Car main event. The traveling series brought 22 competitors to the speedway. The early part of the main event dragged on with six cautions in the first 10 laps. Yet, that was quickly forgotten by the amazing four-car battle near the end of the event. Weger lost the lead to Mike Grenert on a few occasions only to work the topside to his likening and take the lead back from Grenert. Ryan Winter and Patrick Weger along with Kevin Bender all put on a great show slicing and dicing for the top sots. When Weger crossed the finish line first the crowd were on their feet in giving praise to these drivers for their efforts. Grenert finished second and was followed by Winter. Kevin Bender, Daniel Weger and Mike Grenert won the three hear race events.
