Poore, Johnson, Saxon and Hinton Win On Saturday Night

The World’s Fastest High Banked Quarter Mile heated up a chilly Saturday night as Josh Poore won the Ed Martin Chevrolet SuperTrucks feature, Jeremy Johnson captured the Newco Metals Legends main event, Jeff Saxon earned the Quick Auto Front Wheel Drive Pro and Ranny Hinton scored the ImmediaDent Figure 8’s 25-lap feature.

Josh Poore won the Ed Martin Chevrolet SuperTruck feature, being the first event on the bill. Jerry Faucet led the first 25 laps with Ronnie Rose, Poore, and Smokin’ Joe Beaver running nose to tail as the top four. Poore took the lead five laps later and opened up a sizable lead on his way to the win. Beaver made his way up to second, Jerry Faucet wound up third, Ronnie Rose finished fourth and Mark Livesay took fifth.

The Newco Metals Legends feature was the next event with Jeremy Johnson winning. Adam Roberts led early on in the race but never could get away from the field. Johnson found a way around Roberts on lap 17 and never looked back on his way to his first win of the 2008 season. Roberts ran second, Bryan Knuckles finished third, John Robbins was fourth and Mark Dietzen rounded out the top five.

Jeff Saxon ran away from the field on his way to winning his first Quick Auto Front Wheel Drive Pro Division feature. Saxon assumed the lead after Andy Keller caused a caution on the first lap, and never looked back. Keller finished a distant second, Jared Keller wound up third, Randy Owen took fourth, and Harry LaShure capped the top five.

The ImmediaDent Figure 8’s put on a grand show for the Anderson Speedway faithful as Ranny Hinton went wire to wire for the win. Hinton was challenged early by Mike Riddle, Jr., but Riddle was unable to finish after his hood flew up during the middle of the 25-lap event. After a caution that ended the racing for Joe Hart, Anderson’s Rob Allman had a chance to grab the lead away from Hinton, but Ranny kept the nose clean and the finders in good shape on his way to the win. Allman finished second, Ronnie Rose ran third, Shawn Cullen was fourth and Herb Rose came in fifth.

Anderson Speedway returns to action on Saturday, May 10 with Ed Martin Chevrolet SuperTrucks, ImmediaDent Figure 8’s, Street Stocks and Quick Auto Front Wheel Drive Pro division.
