It finally felt normal again at Lakeside Speedway on Friday night.

The weather, which had played havoc on the Midwest this season, finally took a break and let the racers, fans, workers and sponsors get back to what they love doing the most; dirt track racing.

In the USRA Modified feature it was a former multiple time track champion, Tim Karrick, driving to the win on Friday night.

Darron Fuqua, who has been riding a hot hand, jumped out to the early lead in the main event. Even though Fuqua has picked up some feature wins at other USRA tracks, he has only 1 win so far at Lakeside this season. This night he would not get number 2.

Karrick, on the other hand, got off to a good start with a heat race win earlier in the night and his strong performance would follow to the feature. Karrick would run down Fuqua and get by him for the lead and with an open track in front of him Karrick would be tough to beat.

Lap after lap Karrick hit his marks. That was until the white flag lap. On the final circuit Karrick missed his mark just once and that’s all that 2x feature winner this season, Kerry Davis, needed. Davis pulled up along side Karrick and the duel was on.

Karrick would show just how much he wanted this one as he sailed it deep into the turn and then took away Davis’ line to hold on for the win.

Since Lakeside Speedway returned to dirt, no other driver has won more Modified Features than Tim Karrick. This season there have been a total of 8 different feature winners.

Davis would settle for second and would also maintain the points lead, third would go to Fuqua, fourth went to a hard-racing Terry Schultz and Lance Town brought home the fifth-place finish.

Earlier this season, Kevin Anderson had a stranglehold on the USRA Stock Car division. Anderson pulled down three wins early in 2015, but had a bad accident during the USAC race at Lakeside. The wreck would destroy his car and put a halt to any momentum he had. Anderson would take some time off and put a new ride together. He raced for the first time on Friday night.

Starting outside front row for the feature didn’t hurt Anderson’s chances for a strong finish. Upon returning back to Lakeside competing wasn’t the only option for Anderson, he wanted to win.

Anderson didn’t need to knock any rust off early as he won the 2nd heat of the night. A good starting spot for the A Main would give him the opportunity to start where he had left off.

Jumping out in front of the pole setter, Brent Alverson, Anderson drove to the front of the pack and would hold on for magic win #4 on the year. His fourth win of the season is second most of any driver (Tim Shields has the most wins with 7).

Even though Anderson would drive on for the win there was a lot of great racing action going on through the field.

Brett Heeter raced his way to the runner-up spot, substitute driver Jason Ryun showed why he is a good choice after finishing third, Jim Powell Jr., the points leader, finished fourth and Thomas Roberts rounded out the top 5.

USRA Stock Car heat race winners were Anderson, Seifert and Heeter.

The Tim Shields freight train rolled on once again in the Grand Nationals.

It would be the seventh time this season that Shields would roll into victory lane. Shields has posted a victory in every Grand National Feature this season. An impressive accomplishment, to say the least.

Shields started in the third row but it didn’t take him long to find the front of the pack. At the front he flexed his muscle for win #7.

Nick Newton had one of his best runs this season finishing second, third went to Marshall Jewett, fourth was Nick Drew and Dave Powell came in fifth.

The Grand National heat race winner was Shields.

A large field of 30 USRA B-Mod aces showed up to battle it out on Friday night.

All season long Lakeside Speedway fans have been treated to some dominating performances in the B Mod division. Tonight would see another 1st time winner in victory lane and he got there in impressive fashion.

Andy Bryant is one of the best B Mod racers in the area, if not the entire Midwest. Friday night Bryant would come home 2nd in his heat race. Not bad considering he started 5th. It gave him a front row starting spot for the feature.

Bryant parlayed his front row spot into the lead spot at the start of the main event. Unlucky for the rest of the competition he wouldn’t relinquish that spot all night long.

There were a few yellows that hindered progress during the night, but Bryant answered the bell for each restart and would take control all the way to the checkered flag. It was Bryant’s 1st win of the season and he also became the 5th different winner on the season.

Ed Noll, who has 2 wins on the year, drove from 9th to 2nd in the feature, 3x feature winner, Brad Smith finished 3rd, 4th went to Luke Nieman and rounding out the top 5 was Eddie Schwope, who started the main event in 11th.

USRA B Mod Heat Race Winners were Smith, Shadren Turner, Colten Stevens and Tim Powell.

The USRA B Mod B Feature was won by Vic Tranckino.
