Fullen, Sneva, Walters, Baker and Goforth Spring Fourth at Anderson

A record MAX/WLBC Summer Series crowd saw nearly 100 cars go into battle at the Anderson Speedway Friday evening with veteran John Goforth springing forth over the competition to capture the exciting ThunderCar Figure 8 while Jason Fullen was the Limited Late Model victor. T.J. Sneva continued his winning ways in the Legends, Joe Walters took Thunder Oval and Jerry Baker was top dog in the Chappy's Rent to Own Front Wheel Drive headliner.

Fullen had a clean sweep in the Limited Late Models capturing the heat, feature and was also fast timer at 13.433 seconds. Mike Riddle Jr. and Mike Neal were chasers in the heat.

In the feature, Robin Burton enjoyed her first Limited Late Model ride as she led the first 27 circuits of the 30-lap feature. Robin went wide letting Fullen slip by for the win. Riddle was able to slide to second followed by Burton, Neal and Tom Latham.

Legend racing saw an awesome feature with four different leaders in the 25-lap event. Brian Downey was on top from the get go until being passed by Mark Sullivan.

Sullivan's lead lasted one lap before Tommy Jordan charged to the point. Jordan and Sneva had been charging through a half inverted field with the two hot shoes putting on quite a battle. Jordan is usually unbeatable when he comes up from South Carolina but T.J. Sneva took the lead for good on lap 16 and sailed on to his sixth win of the season. Trailers were Jordan, Sullivan, Bryan Phifer and Scott McGinley.

Downey dominated heat No. 1 over Jordan and Homer Adams Jr. while Clark Dietzen was the second heat winner over Aaron Habig and Paul Holden. Sneva was again fast qualifier at 14.209 seconds.

Some 26 cars started the ThunderCar Oval and it was traffic city. Joe Walters grabbed the lead from Jesse King on lap three and never looked back. Roy Grissom Sr. in a borrowed car took second followed by Tim Dick, Josh Tharp and Eric Evans.

Ranny Hinton took the point at the start of the ThunderCar 8. On lap four Grissom and newcomer Jeff Joest met at the cross-over in a grinding crash. Both were ok. Upon the restart. Hinton continued on top with John Goforth, who has been away for several years, moving into second. Goforth grabbed the lead with four laps to go and went on to the win over Hinton, William Coffman, Jim Brown and Roy Ellis.

The exciting Chappy's Rent To Own Front Wheel Drive division continues to grow with 27 cars taking the green. Bill Greene led the field the opening five circuits before Chris Teepe took control. Teepe waltzed to the victory only to be disqualified for illegal tires. Patrick Spillis was awarded the win over Chris Jennings, Darryl Rogers, Larry Shrock and Allen Roberts.
