Another beautiful Saturday evening, led to a night full of great racing action. There was a good sized crowd on hand at Kennedale Speedway Park, and the drivers put on another great show for the fans. A few of our drivers had a great finish but came up a little short in the tech area, which led to some drivers getting an unexpected win for the evening.

Craig Moss looked to be cruising to an easy victory for the IMCA Stock car division until Ryan Powers would be able to run him down and challenge for the lead. Powers made the bottom side of the track work, while Moss had the high side locked down. After a great back and forth battle for the lead, Powers would end up taking the checkered flag and the win; until tech. Unfortunately while in tech, Powers would end up getting a disqualification for a minor rule violation. This would give Moss the win for the stock car division. Bringing home second would be local chassis builder Daryl Campbell followed by another great top five run by Erik Miles. Clint Nabors would snag another top five and the track points leader Shelby Williams would round out your top five.
