Brandy Bower Shows Guys Quick Way at 35 Raceway

by Jerry Wahl

Frankfort, OH (4/22) - It was a great night of racing Saturday night at the new 35 Raceway Park and an even greater night for the young gal from Hilliard, Ohio as Brandy Bower who showed the guys in the 600 Mini Sprint feature the quick way to the checker flag. She also became the first female to win in the sprints at the new facility.

Fresh from a second place finish to Jeff Barnhart in her heat event she wasted little time in the feature to put her #06 out front with Dan Lewis and James Lewis in tow. James moved into second on lap four with Kevin Clark challenging him for second making his pass good on lap nine. Jeff Barnhart was on the tail of Clark, taking over second and then set sail for Bower who had built up a comfortable lead.

The comfort didn't last long as lap after lap Barnhart was reeling in on Bower and coming out of turn four for the checker Barnhart made a hard dash to pull along Bower but it a very excited Bower who just nosed ahead of Barnhart for the win with Barnhart settling for second. Clark was third with James Lewis fourth and Bill Kilgour fifth.

Heat wins went to Barnhart, James Lewis, and Dan Lewis.

The Pro Dwarf main event was a hum-dinger that kept the fans on the edge of their seats as John Evans and Toby Boetcher put on a terrific show of driving skill. Pole setter Roger Seitz led the first lap with third place starter Evans taking over on the next lap to with fourth place starter Boetcher moving into second. Boetcher passed Evans on lap eight with Evans riding right behind him.
The caution came out on lap fourteen for the spin of David Seitz and then after the restart the battle was on for the lead. Lap after lap Evans and Boethcer swapped the lead back and forth with Evans leading on the white flag lap. The two went into turn three side by side and when they reached the checker it Boetcher of Columbus, Ohio barely notching the win. With Evans second, Richie Armentrout, Joe Stuckey, and Mike Weaver rounded out the top five.

Heat wins went to Evans and Boethcer.

Williamsport's Jim Monst made it a clean sweep in the Sportsman Dwarf cars as he claimed his heat win and capped the night by claiming the main. Gary Warner set the pace for the first six laps with Monst taking over, and after four caution periods he led Ricky Taylor, winner of the second heat, Warner, Dennis Griffith, and Bill Feirl to the checker.

James Ball of Chillicothe, Ohio had his hands full holding off the challenges of Estill Scarberry in the Mini Late Model feature which was red flagged and declared complete on lap twelve when flames erupted under Keith Clouser's mount. Clouser was uninjured and due to the time restraint on the event it was checker flagged. Finishing behind Ball was Scarberry, Ralph Brown Jr., John Arthurs, and Jason Crowe.

Eric Arledge and Scarberry won the heats.

James Ball jumped into the lead in the 4-Cylinder Stock main only to have the misfortune of making contact with one of the corner marker tires bringing out the caution and a trip to the rear for Ball.

Steve Carpenter of South Charleston, Ohio then took command and never gave up the lead even though Chip Truitt was right behind him and Ball had been on the move, rapidly passing cars to take third at the checker. Rodney Rittenhouse was fourth and Aaron Nawman fifth.

Truitt, Carpenter, and Tom McVey were heat winners with Rittenhouse claiming the B-Main.
Racing continues this Saturday night at 35 Raceway Park with the gates opening at 3 p.m., warm-ups at 4 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m.
