Riddle and Cribbs Racing Double Winners in Anderson Make-Ups

Anderson's Mike Riddle Jr. captured both Limited Late Model features while Cribbs Racing with Muncie aces Dr. Bill Cribbs and defending Champion Homer Adams Jr. captured both Legend headliners in the MAX/WLBC Friday Night Summer Series that featured make-up races for four divisions.

Anderson's A.J. Jones and Shane Cullen took the ThunderCar Oval Mains, Ranny Hinton the ThunderCar Figure  8. Anderson's David Baker and Richmond's Chris Jennings were the Chappy's Rent To Own feature victors.

In feature No. 1 for the Limited Late Models it was a battle between the Riddle Brothers. Doug led early before Mike Jr. took over on lap seven of the 30 lap event. Mike never looked back to capture the win over Doug, Randy Hoppes, Robin Burton and Todd Marsh.

Doug Riddle almost pulled off the win in feature No. 2 before he was sidelined on lap 24 when his mount began spreading rear end grease. After the cleanup, Mike Riddle Jr. took over and sailed on to his second victory of the night. Trailers were Randy Anderson, Mike Neal, Robin Burton and Jason Fullen. Doug Riddle won the heat and Todd Marsh was fast qualifier at 13.414 seconds.

Greg Dietzen, Kyle Pollack, Eric Black and Ron Tiller crashed on the start of the first legend feature. Upon the restart, Dr. Bill Cribbs made short work of the field as he took to the outside and sailed by his competitors.

Following at the checker were Mark Sullivan, Homer Adams Jr., Daniel Russell and Scott McGinley. Defending point champion Homer Adams, driving a car owned by Bill Cribbs, completed the sweep for Cribbs Racing by jumping to the point on lap and never looking back.

Finishing second through fifth  were McGinley, Black, Darrell Lee Brown and Cribbs.

Daniel Russell led flag to flag in heat No. 1 over Larry Will and Brian Pfifer. Paul Holden and John Robbins battled the first seven laps of heat No. 2 before Darrell Lee Brown grabbed the lead not to give it up. Trailers were Robbins and Garrett Will. Bill Cribbs was fast qualifier at 14.162 seconds.

The first ThunderCar Oval was a wild, slam bang affair. Tom Tacket led the first four laps before Brandon Phillips took the lead. Phillips held the point until Shane Cullen made contact with Phillips on lap 13.

Phillips went to second for a lap with Cullen the leader. The yellow flew for a three-car pileup. Cullen was assessed a four position penalty for the tangle with Phillips and Phillips became the leader again.

On lap 15, Ranny Hinton took control and led coming for the checker when Cullen tagged Hinton. Phillips took the checker but
failed tech and was disqualified. Cullen was moved to the back of the lead lap for the tangle on Hinton. A.J. Jones was awarded the win.

Jonathon Pitts finished second but was disqualified. Rounding out the top five were Joe Walters, Jack Taylor, Donnie Ellis Jr. and Hinton.

James Peterson and Shane Cullen battled from flag to flag in feature No. 2 with Cullen taking the lead from Peterson for good on lap 13. Trailers were Peterson, Josh Myers, Rickie Gable and Josh Tharp.

Jonathon Pitts led the ThunderCar Figure 8 race from the green flag all the way to the last turn coming for the checker. Pitts and Josh Meyers locked horns and all of a sudden cars were sailing everywhere. Ranny Hinton came from fifth place to the checker in the last 100 feet of the race.

Mike Peters ended up second with James Peterson, Josh Tharp and Josh Myers finishing third through fifth. Pitts was disqualified for a post race run in with another car.

The first Front Wheel Drive  feature was a dandy with an incredible nine lead changes in 15 laps. Bill King, Andy Jennings, Elliott McKinney and David Baker swapped positions faster than lightning.

Baker took the lead for good on lap 12 to take the win over Andy Jennings and Corey Elliott. Feature No. 2 ended up being a battle between Sam Banta and Larry Shrock.

Shrock led the first 11 circuits before Banta took the point and went to the checkers over Andy Jennings and David Baker. Chris Jennings led the third feature from the get-go to the end-o over Bill Greene and George Baker, Jr.
