CALVERT CITY – Kyle Stickler of Moorsville, North Carolina, bested the 23-car Open Wheel Modified field at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway on Saturday Night. Strickler started the feature event in the 13th  starting spot and had worked his way up to 11th when the first yellow flag flew on lap seven.

By lap 16 Strickler had piloted the 27T machine to 7th. A caution with 22 laps completed created a 3 lap shootout for the $3,000 to-win event. Strickler lined up behind leader, Bryce Jewell, for the final restart. Strickler was able to get around Jewell on lap 24 and held him off to take the checkered flag by a 0.560 second margin. Michael Lee, Jeff Elliot and Randle Sweeney rounded out the top five.

Jarryd Holshouser of Boaz, Kentucky took home the victory in the Super Late Model division. Dylan Thompson initially took the checkered flag but an incident on the backstretch after the race disqualified Thompson, giving Holshouser the victory. Tim Brown, Levi Kissinger, Brad Mitchell and Lee Williams finished 3rd through 5th, respectively.

The Pro Crate Late Model division saw Credence Mott of Vienna, Illinois storm his way to his first victory of the season at KLMS. Mott beat Kevin Poole to the finish by 6.225 seconds. Matthew Filkins, Josh Cherry and Austin Flint rounded out the top five of the feature.

Owensboro, Kentucky’s Chad Boone bested the field in the Stock Car division. Boone started the race in the 4th position and wasted no time getting around the field and leading the first lap. Mike Lentz, Trent Young, Tyler Stevenson and Brent Burnett rounded out the field.

Mike Neighbors won the Pure Stock division for the eighth consecutive event. Neighbors is undefeated so far in competition at KLMS. Mike Watson, Chad Weiner and Matthew Rollins finished 2nd through 4th, respectively.

Racing will continue at KLMS on Saturday, August 8th with a regular program. After a string of special events for the last eight events, all classes will compete for regular pay. More information can be found at
