The Terry’s RV Sales & Service Summer
Fun Weekend concluded at Anderson Speedway on Saturday, August 6, with Street
Stocks featured in the Terry’s RV 150. The Boss Hogg Catering & Jerky Figure 8’s
and Ed Martin Auto Group SuperTrucks were also showcased on The Star Press
Saturday Night Series.
New Castle’s Mark Jones picked up his second win of the season in the Ed Martin
Auto Group SuperTruck feature after misfortune struck several of the front
runners on two separate occasions. DT’S R Bar Rookie Josh Poore drove into first
position and paced the opening six circuits. Then contact between Steve Blair
and Poore forced the first caution of the event.
This handed the first spot to point’s leader Tony Broyles. The New Castle
competition then began to pull away from his closest challenge Joe Beaver. As
the race progressed, Beaver closed right behind Broyles. Then the two tangled in
turn three, just five laps from the end of the 40-lap feature, with Broyles’
truck spinning and Beaver’s truck hitting the wall. Jones inherited the top spot
after the incident and cruised to the win.
In just his second appearance of the year, Brian Hopkins finished in second spot
after making a late-race pass on eventual third-place finisher Wes Russell Jr.
Fourth was Bob Lemen with Ric Pfeifer rounding out the top five.
Hopkins won the first heat race after finishing ahead of teammates Joe Beaver
and Wes Russell Jr. Indianapolis’ Scott Brooks was the winner of the second
heat, beating Josh Poore and Ric Pfeifer. Broyles was the top qualifier at a
time of 13.577 seconds.
Two-time defending champion Rich Boyer recorded the victory in the Terry’s RV
150, making the winning passing with just eight laps remaining on Danny Acrey
ll. The event began with Boyer posting the quickest time in time trails of the
23 cars that were on hand. At the drop of the green flag, Boyer darted into the
first position and dominated the first half of the biggest event of the Street
On the 84th go-around, the complexion of the event changed when Jamie Hadley and
Abe Puckett made contact and hammered the retaining wall in turn 1. Boyer was
regulated to the tail of the field for involvement with the accident.
This handed first spot to Acrey, who continued to show the pace until Boyer
moved back to challenge for the race lead. While battling with Acrey for
leadership honors, Boyer then found himself relegated to the rear of the pack
after spinning in the third turn on the 126th lap.
A couple late-race caution periods caused the field to bunch back up, giving
Boyer a chance. Then in a fierce battle for the race win, Boyer and Acrey
battled side-by-side for three laps before Boyer made the decisive pass in turn
four on the 141st lap. He then pulled away for a comfortable win. Chris Miller
placed third with Ryan Buckner and Jeff Perry completing the top five.
Former division champions Ronnie Rose and Mike Riddle Jr. put on a classic
two-car duel in the Boss Hogg Catering & Jerky Figure 8 feature. Rose jumped out
to the lead from the outside of the front row while Riddle followed him from the
fourth starting position. Riddle was hot on Rose’s bumper as the traffic in the
crossover became heavy. The two avoided disaster on the 18th lap when they both
nearly hit the slower car of Anderson’s Rod Phipps.
The near-miss may have given Riddle the momentum he needed over the final two
laps as he went to the high side of Rose heading into the final two turns of the
20-lap race. The two went side-by-side coming into the crossover with Riddle
able to pick up the win by half the length of the car. Anderson’s Billy Palmer
finished third, with fellow Anderson drivers Herb Rose and Curtis Chapman
rounding out the top five.
Rose and Ranny Hinton grabbed the winning hardware in heat race action. Point’s
leader Curtis Chapman recorded the best time in qualifying with an official
quick time of 20.509 seconds.
