Moyes, Burton, Harmon and Warner
Win Again at Anderson Speedway
By Denny Adams
David Moyes, III, Lonny Burton, Kevin
Harmon and Nick Warner returned to the O’Reilly Auto Parts Winners Circle Friday
evening at Anderson Speedway to capture the Legend, ThunderCar, Front Wheel
Drive Oval and Front Wheel Drive Figure 8 features in another exciting edition
of the MAX-WLBC Friday Night Summer Series.
Newco Metals Legend action saw Fisher’s, James Edsall, III jump to the early
lead in the feature before Moyes, an 18 year-old sensation from Cottontown,
Tennessee sailed to the point on lap 7. Defending track champ Rodney Smith of
Indy set out in hot pursuit but Moyes was not to be denied his second win of the
year in as many visits. James Fowlkes of Georgia, Edsall and fellow Tennesseean
Eric Simpson rounded out the top five. Rodney Smith and Eric Black of Plainfield
were preliminary winners with Smith fast qualifier at 14.100.
Anderson’s Lonny Burton made quick work of the competition in the ThunderCar
headliner as he took the point at the green flag and never relinquished it.
Robbie Wyman of Muncie was chief chaser and never left Burton’s bumper as they
ran flag to flag 1-2. Rounding out the top five were Andersonians Jeff
Eytchison, Tom Tackett and Tim Dick. Tackett and Alexandria’s Alice Riall won
heats with Anderson’s Sam Folsom quick timer at 15.010.
The Chappy’s Rent To Own Front Wheel Drives were out in force. In the figure-8
feature, Anderson’s Nick Warner continues to build toward a points “three-peat”
as he sailed to feature win #7 defeating fellow Anderson residents Donnie Ellis,
Jr, Jeff Wright, Bryan Wright and Andy Keller in that order. 30 cars started the
oval feature and gave the fans exciting action. Jeff Wright led the first 5 laps
before Tony Crum went to the point only to see his mount fail with three
circuits to go. Alexandria’s Kevin Harmon inherited the lead and took it home
for his 6th win of the year. Following were Jeff Wright, Alexandria’s Hanna
Lundy, who sneaked into 3rd right at the checker, Anderson’s Bryan Wright and
Trevor Abbott. Heat wins went to Chesterfield’s Allen Wagner and Indy’s Cody
Smith while Tony Crum was fastest in time trials with a 16.289.
