Todd Buckwold Tops in Sportsman Modified Twin 20's
Submitted by: AW on 2018-06-24 at 16:10

It was Dyer's Welding/Upper Valley Line-X night at the Legion Speedway with Twin 20's on tap for the Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds along with race number two for the Homestead Creations Limited Late Models between Bear Ridge Speedway and Legion Speedway. The Rand's Hardware Mini Stock had a regular show with the Wingless Auto Club also on hand.

The Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifieds ran Twin 20's with the best overall combined finish getting the win. The first race saw David Heath jump into the lead from the pole with Matt Lashua second. The races' only caution flew with three laps complete and on the restart Matt Lashua would power into the lead, bringing Ryan Christian to second with him. A lap later Todd Buckwold slipped by Heath into third and that is how the top three remained for the duration of the race with Matt Lashua taking the win, Ryan Christian second and Todd Buckwold third. The Second race found Jeff Huntington quickly take the top spot with Josh Currier and Wayland Childs swapping the second spot a couple of times. After the caution flew for Josh Currier, a victim of a flat tire, Todd Buckwold quickly made his way to second on the restart with Ryan Christian moving to third. The top three remained the same the rest of the way with Huntington first, Buckwold second and Christian third. The overall win went to Todd Buckwold with Ryan Christian second and Matt Lashua third. All three drivers amassed five points with the tiebreakers being finishing position in the second race. Jeff Huntington was fourth and David Heath fifth.

The Homestead Creations Sportsman Late Model Main Event saw Kelly Miller lead the first lap before Travis Smith made an inside move as Miller slipped up the track. Matt Pike also took advantage of Millers' slip and take the second position. A lap later Ryan Christian also got by Miller, advancing to third. By the time the race reached the halfway point Toby Stark, who started seventh, started to pressure Christian for third, successfully completing the pass a few laps later. At the checkers it was Travis Smith with the win, Matt Pike second and Toby Stark third. Ryan Christian and Kelly Miller rounded out the top five.

In the Rand's Hardware Mini Stock Main Event Rich Willey flew to the lead from his fourth starting spot before a lap was complete, but his lead was short lived as just two laps later Jack Cook claimed the top spot with Tim St. John moving to second, dropping Willey to third. A few laps later Jacob Brown, who started ninth, made his way to third and four laps later make his way into second and set his sights on leader Cook. Brown and Cook tangled racing for the lead, causing a caution and handing the lead to Sean Lantas. Lantas held the lead the rest of the way to take his first win of the season. Points leader Erin Aiken made a last lap pass coming to the Checkers to take second at the line with David Flanders third. Jacob Brown and Justin Carbee completed the top five.

The Wingless Auto Club made their third appearance of the season with a caution free event that found Doug McPhail take advantage of Mark Cole's mechanical misfortune as Cole broke while leading, handing the lead to McPhail, who would go on to take the win. Jamie Glidden was second with Adam Trott third.

Joining the regular divisions of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Series this Friday night at 7:00PM, June 29th will be the second appearance of the season for the Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupes. An Enduro will complete the night.
