MONROE, WASH., — Momentum and Matt Hein are meshing. Fresh off his hometown win in Roseburg, Hein dominated the NSRA Speedfest Main Saturday night at Evergreen Speedway.
Hein began the program as the quick qualifier with a 19.191 lap turned in on the longest (5/8 mile) track on the tour. Later he went from back to front to win his respective Heat. And, after a pill draw placed him on the inside of Row 2 in the starting grid of the 30-Lap feature, he darted to the front on Lap 4 and led by more than a quarter mile during most of the race.
“We were definitely quick tonight,” Hein said. “Our car was super fast. The crew did a great job of giving me a fast car. It was a lot of fun out there.”
Johnny Giesler, Meridian, Idaho, started second in the Main, led the first four circuits and finished runner-up to Hein. Ryan Burdett, West Jordan, Utah, had the Speedfest pole and finished third ahead of Beck and Ron Larson respectively.
While Hein’s fortunes flourished, other top entrants experienced heartaches.
Season points leader Sierra Jackson, Middleton, Idaho, had mechanical issues following the practice sessions, in which her 25J was the fastest on the oval. Jackson was only able to record one lap time of qualifying and then struggled with the car after every subsequent Main green flag.
“We had a nozzle break during qualifying and blew a spark plug during the Heat,” Jackson said. “Then during the Main the car was just crap.”
Jackson, the former tour champion, entered Monroe with the season points lead, but now trails Hein by nine points as the tour heads to Canada in two weeks. She finished ninth in the Main, but did win her Heat.
The nationally ranked Jackson wasn’t the only victim of mechanical failure Saturday. During a practice session, reigning NSRA champ, Andy Alberding blew the motor in the 76 car, ending his bid to compete at one of his favorite tracks before it started.
“We won’t know until we take it apart what exactly broke,” Alberding said. It could be a rod, but regardless, whatever broke was supposed to. We were unsure about racing in Canada, now it looks like we really might not make it.”
There were 14 entrants at Monroe, with only eight running in the Main when Hein captured the checkered flag. Monroe’s own John Tharp and Jake Mann both experienced engine issues as did Greg Middendorf, Snohomish. Richie Larson, Prince George, BC. also didn’t start the Main.
Matt Mansell, Victoria, British Columbia, drew the only yellow flags of the race. He spun his No. 14 car on Lap 11 and then tagged the rear of Robert Beck, Redmond, on the backshoot of Lap 26 and sent himself into a night-ending spin.
Giesler ranks third in points ahead of Burdett who leapfrogged Alberding in the standings. Bryan Warf, who was in the top five, didn’t compete at Monroe.
Main: 1. Matt Hein; 2. Johnny Giesler; 3. Ryan Burdett, 4. Robert Beck; 5. Ron Larson; 6. Billy Kennelly, 7. Todd Coleman; 8. Sierra Jackson; 9. Greg Middendorf; 10. Matt Mansell; 11. Jake Mann.
Heat 1: Jackson; Kennelly, Ron Larson; Giesler; Mann; Richie Larson
Heat 2: Hein; Coleman; Mansell; Beck; Middendorf; Burdett; Tharp
Hog Heaven for Evergreen Speedway winners during Harley Davidson night
MONROE, Wash. (July 26, 2014)-A first-time winner in the late model division, with racing down to the wire in several of the night’s main events provided an action packed thrill during Evergreen Speedway’s Emerald City Harley Davidson Night at the Races presented by Central Welding Supply held Saturday night.
Providing the biggest moment of the evening was teenage late model sensation, Brandon Scheiber, who scored his first career NASCAR Whelen All-American victory in the Emerald City Harley Davidson Super Late Model division. The division’s Rookie of the Year points leader, nabbed the lead early in the second of two late model 50-lap main events. Once in front Scheiber held off the challenges of John Bender and Jeff Knight en route to the victory.
Late model championship points leader, Mike Holden, scored the win in the night’s first main event. With the victory Holden stretched his championship lead on Daniel Moore and Tyler Tanner heading into the big 100-lap race on August 16 as part of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West stop at Evergreen Speedway.
Carl Davidson led over 20 laps of the Les Schwab Street Stock’s main event only to be overtaken by the hard-charging Roger Drake. Once Drake cleared Davidson it opened the door for Mike Marthaller and Steve Ptacek to move by as well with all three closing out the night atop the podium.
Scott Burby stormed through the Foster Press Mini Stock field en route to his main event victory. Burby, who pulled double-duty on the night as he posted a ninth-place finish in the Interstate Batteries Hornet division, saved his best for last in the Mini-Stock show by posting one of the race’s fastest laps while holding off Andrew Shukar on the white flag lap. Kyle Shukar, Bobby DeYoung and Trenton Moriarty rounded out the top-5 running order.
Zach Bristol scored the Hornet main event victory over JJ Kooy with Justin Brave also in the mix for much of the night before he settled for third-place. Bristol took the lead near the race’s midway point then set sail towards the checkered flag in a lighting quick fashion. Gary Rarden and Cody Hoopes came fourth and fifth place respectively.
Steve Schoenfeldt navigated his Buzz Inn Steakhouse Stinger 8 car to victory on he action-packed course as he staved off countless challenges from his competitors including runner-up Jessica Gray and third-place runner, Lance O’Grain.
Evergreen Speedway continues its racing season on Saturday, August 2 with the running of the annual NSRA Winged Sprint Car Speedfest presented by the Angel of the Winds Casino. Also competing during the evening will be the Les Schwab Street Stocks, Foster Press Mini-Stocks, Columbia River Legends and the Northwest Pro 4 Truck Series.
