Anderson Speedway concluded the Bush Trophy Case & Embroidery Sprint to the Finish Weekend with the Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series, Boss Hogg Catering & Jerky Figure 8’s and Terry’s Sales & Service Street Stocks on Saturday, September 10.

Richie Jacobs recorded his first career Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series victory in the 30-lap feature event. He grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag, getting the early jump on Jason Fuller and Tim Cox. On the fourth circuit, Cox was eliminated from action after he was involved in an accident and made contact with turn two wall.

Jacobs continued to pace the field as fast qualifier Jimmy McCune charged to the front of the pack. On the 17th circuit, McCune darted around Jacobs to take the lead and then McCune was involved in an accident in the first turn, eliminating him from the event.

That gave Jacobs the lead back and he was able to fend off late-race challenges from Fuller. Third at the finish was veteran Hank Lower. The remainder of the top five included Geoff Kaiser and Sondi Eden.

In preliminary action, Jimmy McCune, Sondi Eden and Tim Cox visited the Texas Roadhouse Winner’s Circle in heat race action. McCune was the top qualifier with a lap of 10.486 seconds at 85.829 mph.

Rod Phipps turned in a dominant performance in the Terry’s RV Sales & Service Street Stocks to earn his fourth feature victory of the 2005 season. Bruce McFall led from the start until a broken wheel forced him out of competition on the second circuit. Jacob McElfresh then inherited the lead with Phipps driving into leadership honors on the fourth lap.

During the remainder of the event, Phipps pulled away for a comfortable victory. Curtis Chapman finished in the second position with point leader Rich Boyer placing third. Ryan Buckner and Abe Puckett completed the top five.

Curtis Chapman scored the victory in the first Terry’s RV Sales & Service Street Stock heat race with Elwood’s John Davis winning the second heat. Rod Phipps posted the fastest time in qualifying with a lap of 14.052 seconds.

In Boss Hogg Catering & Jerky Figure 8 action, Ronnie Rose recorded a flag-to-flag victory in the 20-lap feature, doing a masterful job of handling cross-over traffic to earn his ninth win. The former division champion held off early challenges from Ranny Hinton and then pulled away while Hinton, Riddle and Chapman battled for runner-up honors.

On the 19th circuit, Riddle drove around Hinton to grab second-place honors. Third at the finish was Hinton, who barely edged out Chapman at the finish line. Josh Tharp rounded out the top-five finishers.

Ronnie Rose began the night on a good note with scoring the win in the first heat, while Rob Allman took top honors in the second heat race. Shawn Cullen was the fast qualifier with a lap of 20.468 seconds.
