For once it felt like Summer at Lakeside Speedway on Friday night. The other positive thing was that a rain cloud could not be found for miles around.

On the track the action was what everyone has come to expect from Lakeside Speedway, exciting.

Tim Shields continued his superior season with another win in the Grand National Feature. The win was #8 on the season for Shields and it was another easy one.

Shields started outside of row number 2 but it didn’t take him long to get to the front of the field. Once again, Shields car performed to it’s best and he drove another flawless race. As we get near the halfway point of the season, it’s still possible that Shields can win every single feature this year.

Steven Dibben put together a strong run finishing in 2nd, 3rd would go to Donnie Brown, Dave Powell locked down 4th and rounding out the top 5 was Marshall Jewett.

The Grand National Heat Race Winner was Shields.

One season a driver can be up, the next he can be down. The racing game is a vicious cycle.

Kerry Davis has been racing in the USRA Modified division for a long time. He, better than most, knows that one race to the next can be totally different. This season Davis is finding an upswing in his program at Lakeside Speedway.

Friday night at Lakeside it was the Kerry Davis show once again as he blasted to his 3rd win of the season. Davis is the only repeat winner in 2015 in the Modifieds.

A pole position waited for Davis as the feature event got underway. From the outset it was Davis at the front of the field.

During the feature the big question was could the USMTS racer, Zach VanderBeek, run down Davis for the win? VanderBeek started 9th on the grid. The track slicked off and he continued to get faster and faster as he made his way by the competition.

Davis, meanwhile, was on cruise control at the front of the pack.

VanderBeek would make a charge but it wouldn’t be enough on this night as Davis raced to the win.

The runner-up spot went to VanderBeek, Aaron Marrant had one of his better runs this season finishing 3rd, 4th went to Terry Schultz and Nic Bidinger would round out the top 5.

USRA Modified Heat Race Winners were Tim Karrick and Logan Martin.

In the USRA Stock Car Feature event it was a heavy weight battle. Kevin Anderson, who won a week ago and has 4 wins to his credit, started up front and got out early on the competition. Win #5 might have been in the cards, if it wasn’t for John O’Neal Jr.

O’Neal spent a lot of time this off-season developing a Stock Car Chassis, X-Factor Race Cars, and he has been helping so many others get going it has taken him a little while.

Tonight O’Neal had the task of running down a 4 time feature winner. He would overtake Anderson and run at the front of the pack. It was the run O’Neal had been looking for all year.

Brett Heeter also got by Anderson and he put together a good charge at O’Neal. On the restarts he would hang right with O’Neal, but he couldn’t muster up the momentum to get by the veteran racer.

The win was O’Neal’s first of the season. He becomes the 6th different feature winner in the class.

The race within the race also saw a shakeup in the point standings. Jim Powell Jr. had a great effort in the feature as he started 17th and finished 10th. Breet Heeter’s 2nd place finish put him at the top of the standings. Powell will have some work to do if he wants to regain the top spot.

Anderson would hold on for 3rd, Blake Peeler put on a top notch effort as he went from 11th to 4th in the main event and it was Lucas Conley coming home in 5th.

USRA Stock Car Heat Race Winners were O’Neal, Anderson and Dean Hensler.

Somewhere down the line if you poke a sleeping bear long enough he is bound to get up. Not to mention he might be mad.

Chad Clancy has been poked one to many times this season and he is awake, alert and back on his form of 2014! Friday night at Lakeside Clancy backed up his win from last week with his 2nd consecutive feature win in the USRA B Mod Feature.

The competition level in this class is starting to soar and that makes it tough for the competitors, but great for the fans.

Clancy worked his way to a strong heat race win earlier in the night. It would set him up for a good starting position in the feature. At the drop of the green flag Clancy would begin his attack for the top spot.

Luke Nieman and Ed Noll joined Clancy at the front of the pack. A good battle ensued amongst all the racers. Clancy would keep pace at the front of the field and not give up the top spot. The win was 3rd straight for Clancy in 2015, he won at Lakeside, I-35 and Lakeside again last night. Could Clancy be making a run for another National Championship?

Noll continued his strong season with a 2nd place finish, 3rd would go to Nieman, veteran, Gene Claxton, made his way into the top 5 finishing 4th and Brad Smith, a 3x feature winner, finished in 5th.

One of the hardest charges in any division Friday night came from Logan Martin in the B Mods. Martin started 25th and marched his way up to 7th just missing out on a top 5.

USRA B Mod Heat Race Winners were Clancy, Noll, Colten Stevens and Sam Schuler Jr.

Racing action continues next Friday night, June 26th, 2015. “Big” Ed Beckley will be attempting a ramp-to-ramp jump over 10 new Chevrolet trucks on his Harley-Davidson.
