Hamilton Wins 4th feature in thrilling fashion!
Matt Hamilton has clearly been the dominant driver here in 2015. Coming into this night, he had already won 3 features. He would start from the pole and appear to have everyone covered without any serious threat. That was until about lap 16 when Joey Kramer got around Hamilton on a restart. Kramer appeared to have Hamilton covered but coming to the white flag, Hamilton pulled alongside Kramer and beat him back to the line as the crowd cheered him to victory. It was one of the best races in recent years and one that fans who witnessed will remember for many years. Kramer had to settle for second followed by Budweiser UMP Modified Point leader David Spille was third followed by Kyle Schnornick and Weasel Rhoades in 5th. Heat winners were Kramer, Hamilton, and Kyle Herbert. The Budweiser UMP Modifieds return to Lawrenceburg on Saturday June 13th.
McRoberts does it the hard way for 4 in a row!
Will McRoberts had to start last in the feature due to winning 2 features in a row. So when the green flag flew he was dead last, after one lap he had picked up 6 spots. He was on his way to the front. The race was put under caution early on when 3 time defending champion Scott Hensley was turned around in turn 2 by Brandon Gibson. Hensley’s rear end was demolished and Gibson was Dq’ed for the night. When the racing resumed, Houston Roark led the way with Corebin McRoberts in second. These two battled for a few laps before Corebin was able to pass Houston for the lead. But it wouldn’t be for long as Will Mcroberts, Corebin’s father was right on his tail. He trailed Corebin for a few laps before sweeping around Corebin for the lead and leading the rest of the way in the 15 lap feature. Corebin ran second followed by Houston Roark, Eric House, and Don Grace. Heat race winners were Will McRoberts, and Scott Hensley. The Impact Sports Pure Stocks will return to the Burg on Saturday July 25th.
Smith becomes first Female Feature Winner!
No female driver had ever won a feature at Lawrenceburg since the track has been in its current connfiguration. Katie Smith, from Centerville, Indiana would make history as the first woman to do that. She made her first trip to Lawrenceburg and really showed how dominant she could be winning her heat race and then started on the outside of the front row. She took the lead quickly but had to battle with the defending hornet champion Dalton Roark for the first half of the race before the two made contact on the track a couple different times and Roark was unable to continue due to damage. That really allowed Smith to pull away and not have any other challengers. Gary Hume finished second followed by Kendall Eberhart Jr, Brandon Gibson, Jr. and Tyler McGhee. Heat race winners were Smith, Dalton Roark, and Tyler McGhee. The Besslers U Pull N Save Hornets return to the track on Saturday July 25th.
