For Immediate Release BRS-073016-1

BRADFORD, VT – The ever popular David’s House Benefit night sponsored by Dennis Preston Builder offered some wild racing for the fans Saturday night at the Ridge.
In the DIRTcar Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds it took the dominator Adam Pierson thirty two laps to take the point, passing the only other leader Steve Flint for the lead. Pierson would once again sail on for the win his eighth of the season. Flint would end up in a caution slipping to the back of the back by the race conclusion his finish in no way representing his outstanding performance. Coming from mid pack Ryan Christian found himself chasing Pierson for the lead, but unfortunately would not have what it would take to get by Pierson having to settle for second his best finish of the year. Kevin Chaffee would join the two in victory lane. Josh Currier and Gary Siemons completed the top five.
The DIRTcar Wells River Chevrolet Sportsman Coupes had to be put in a “time out” before they were able to complete their thirty lap main event for the night. By the time the caution waved for the fifth time on lap ten, race director/promoter said enough. The field was told to head to the pits for a cool down period while the next event was run. When they returned the reline had Bob Shepard on the point with father Earl Maxham and son Tyler Maxham in the second row. Only one more caution would slow the pace as the drivers seemed to be a bit calmer upon their return. Shepard would be able to hold on to the win making him only the second driver in this division to be a repeat winner. Jason Horniak during all of this had quietly worked his way thru the pack taking over the second place spot from Earl Maxham on lap nineteen, coming along for the ride was Matt Ellsworth who slid into third behind Horniak. This is how they would cross the line when the checkers waved. Josh Harrington and Thomas Placey completed the top five.
It was once again Adam Pierson coming home the winner in the Laquerre Sports USAC DMA Midgets his sixth of the season. Team mate Josh Sunn the only other driver to win this season came home in second getting by Adam Whitney with only two laps to go. Whitney held on for the final victory lane spot. Only one caution would slow the pace on lap five which would send Jeff Horn to the pits, his night over. Robert Tucker and Dean Christiansen rounded out the top five.
Tim Martin gets another win in Mike Rivers Automotive Limited Late Models. Wayland Childs and Derrick Stearns joined him in victory lane, with Don Reynolds and TJ Morse completing the top five.
Lapped traffic took the win away from Danny Doyle in the Weglarz Property Service Four Cylinders on lap seventeen and with the caution that followed sending him to the pits. Doyle would make it back before the green waved on the restart and he was able to jump back up to third on the last lap joining Mike Ryan the win with Buddy Welch in second. Kevin LaForest and Robert Willey rounded out the top five.
