Moler Raceway holds two night Party in the Park

WILLIAMSBURG – What started out as a smooth night of racing was thrown a curve ball as Mother Nature made an appearance at Moler Raceway Park just after all the heat races were completed.

After spending time to run the track in and getting all cars onto the track to help it was a super-fast race track when the Late Models took to the track for their 30 lap feature event.

At the drop of the green flag it was Wheelersburg’s Rod Conley and Edinburgh, Indiana’s Chad Stapleton out front and setting a torrid pace at the front of the field. A Mike Unger spinout on lap seven slowed the pace and on the restart there was significant tire smoke from the left rear of Conley and within two laps his tire blew, bringing out a second caution flag.

On the restart it was all Stapleton as the Club 29, K&L Machine, Brian Bowman Dodge, and Rodger’s Bar-sponsored machine would go on and claim his second feature win of the season. Scott Edmisten would come home second place with John Whitney, Chad Smith, and Lauren Longbrake completing the top five spots. In heat race action Stapleton was victorious over Longbrake while Conley was victorious in heat No. 2 over Edmisten. Conley would win the Diamond Cut Lawn Care Dash event.

In the Matt’s Graphics UMP Modified Division it was Edinburgh, Indiana’s Joe Godsey taking the feature win in his Tony Stewart Racing, JD Byrider, Rush Truck Center, Larry Shaw Race car. It was far from easy as fellow Larry Shaw Race car driven by Adam Stricker would ride the bumper of Godsey for the final 15 laps and even attempted a big slide job on the final lap but to no avail, as Godsey would turn under Stricker and retake the lead and go on to win the 20-lap affair. Jimmy Lennex would come home second with Dave McWilliams and Larry Pickelheimer completing the top five positions. Godsey and Jeff Surber were victorious in the heat race events.

In the Tarvin Auto Service Freedom 4’s it was heat race winners Miles and Kyle Tarvin bringing the field to the green flag, but Tarvin would have problems and drop back quickly allowing Miles Tarvin to jump to the lead that he wouldn’t give up over the 15-lap feature event. At the checkered flag it was Sean Jones coming home second with Josh Davis, Eric Weaver, and Mike Clark completing the top five spots.

The Diamond Cut Lawn Care Sport Mod Division would feature Stout’s Derek Richmond and Georgetown’s Andy Trout winning heat races. In the feature it was all Richmond as the likeable young driver would get the monkey off his back and take his first feature win of the 2015 race season. Bert Crawford would charge from last place on the start following heat race mechanical issues to claim a second-place finish over Trout, Tony Seibert, and Glenn Keaton.

A large field of DRC Crazy Compacts were on hand with 20 cars taking the green flag in the feature event. At the green flag it was heat race winner Justin Dalton taking the lead into turn No. 1 but it was Springboro’s Kevin Stamper making the pass into turn No. 3 and taking the lead he wouldn’t give up throughout the 15-lap event. While Stamper would lead all the laps it was a great four-car battle behind him for the second position with Bill Gibson, Jason Borgemenke, Dalton, and Blake Gibson completing the top five running order at the end of the feature. After the races, the Taylor Shannon Band performed live to top off night one of the second annual Party in the Park.

Party in the Park at MRP Day No. 2 of the Moler Raceway Park festival included the first-ever appearance by Crate Late Models and while the car count was low there was a good battle on the racetrack with Chad Stapleton taking his second feature win on the weekend in late model action. Friday night Stapleton would win in his own No. 32 machine but on this night he would drive the No. 9 31 Auto Group Crate Late Model to the 15-lap feature victory, being recorded in the books as the First Crate Late Model Feature Winner at MRP. Tom Collini would come home second with heat race winner Jeff Alsip coming in third with Jerry Gibson Jr and Brian Sims completing the top five spots.

In the Matt’s Graphics UMP Modified division it looked as though Ryan Morton was going to claim victory in his first appearance of 2015 but a lap-12 restart allowed Bethel’s Dave McWilliams to find a new lane up against the outside wall that he would patiently work to inch closer and closer, before finally taking the lead on the final lap and claiming victory at the finish line in his L&M Performance backed Badfast Chassis. Morton would come home second with Boog Verdon having a career best third place finish while Larry Pickelheimer and Patrick Alcorn completed the top five spots.

The Diamond Cut Lawn Care Sport Mods would see Andy Trout take the lead from Mitchell Fields on lap No. 1 and go on to claim his second feature win on the season in his Seip’s Carquest Auto Parts, A&J Liquid Graphics,Jones Farm, Puckett’s Tire and Lube, Elizanda Lumber sponsored machine. Fields would come home in second spot with Glenn Keaton, Bethany Moler, and Burt Crawford completing the top five spots. Fields won the heat race while Tony Seibert won the Dash event.
