CONGRATS TO THE 2013 TRACK CHAMPIONS:
Ridenour, Bevard, Langdon and Hyliard fly to opening night feature wins
Corey Bevard, Steve Langdon and Dustin Hyliard would all capture feature wins
Saturday night at Butler Motor Speedway.
After the brutal Michigan winter, it was
time to kick off the 2014 racing season at the 3/8 mile speedplant. The racers were ready, the fans were ready,
and the crew had the track in shape after rain soaked the track all week long.
The first feature to
hit the track would be the Sportsman feature.
The Butler Sportsman class was down on car count, but certainly wasn't
down on excitement. Jarrett Rendel and
Steve Langdon would lead the field to green. Langdon would get out to an early
lead, with Deuane Morley and Fred VanEvey giving chase. Langdon would continue to cruise out front
until three laps to go, when Morley would put the nose under Langdon in turn
two. From this point on Langdon would
surge out to a three car length lead and go on to capture the feature win over
Morley. Fred VanEvey would finish 3rd
and Jarrett Rendel 4th.
Langdon, a Sherwood resident, would also capture the heat race.
The next feature
event to roll out onto the speedway would be the UMP Modified feature. Louis Miller and Corey Bevard would bring the
20 car field to green. The red would fly
immediately when contact toward the front of the pack would send the cars of
Jarrett Rendel, Clayton Smith, Richard Swan, James Hadley and Brandon Ordway
all into a pile. Fortunately all the
drivers were ok, and most were able to continue on in the feature event. On the restart, Bevard would jump to the
lead. Bevard would continue to lead thru
a couple of single car cautions and go on to claim the checkered flag. Chasing Bevard to the line would be Scott
Mackenzie, Mike Tarlton, Nick Kurtz and Louis Miller. Rounding out the top 10 was Swan and Smith,
from the tail after the 1st lap incident, Chris Garrett, David
VanGuilder and Jarrett Rendel. Heat race
wins went to Kurtz, Bevard and Josh Lolmaugh, while Swan would win the B main.
The Winged Sprint
car feature would head out onto the speedway next with Scott Euler and Ryan
Kirkendall bringing the field to the green.
The red flag would wave for Jess Stiger, as he would take the first
tumble of the 2014 season. Stiger would
be ok, but his car was done for the evening.
The field would get a complete restart, with Euler jumping into the
lead. A lap 2 yellow would fly as Mike
Baker would slow and roll to a stop in the infield. Doug Zimmerman would get the lead and maintain
it, until Chase Ridenour would blast by with 3 laps to go. Ridenour, making his 7th career
winged Sprint start, would be the first one to the checkers. Rounding out the top 5 was Zimmerman, Euler,
Kirkendall and 2013 Track Champion, Brad Lamberson. 6th thru 10th positions
went to Kyle Pitts, Josh Turner, Mike Burns, Jay Steinebach and Fred
Worden. Ridenour, who just turned 15
years old in March, won the first heat race, while Lamberson won the second
The Street Stocks
would be the final feature of the night with Dustin Hyliard and Terry Milliman
bringing the field to the green. Hyliard
would jump out to the lead early with Milliman settling into 2nd. Terry Bumpus who started in 4th,
would get by Milliman into 2nd and bring Josh Garrett and Bob
Rendell with him. Hyliard would sit out
front on cruise control, while the fight was behind him for 2nd thru
5th. Bumpus would settle into
2nd while Rendell, Garrett and defending champion Chris Garrett were
battling for top 5 spots. At the
checkers it would be Hyliard, Bumpus, Josh Garrett, Rendel and Chris
Garrett. Sixth thru tenth would see
Shawn McFeters, Bob Johnson, Kevin Green, Tom Notestine and Sheryll
Dishaw. The Coldwater resident Hyliard,
would capture the 1st heat race while Milliman was victorious in the
