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.
