 The weather was sizzling hot for the Dads 4 By Tools & Supply/Hoosier Tire East 4th of July Holiday Spectacular and so was the competition on the track for the 99Rock Weekly Racing Series.

It was Madness Night for the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds with well over $9,000.00 on the line, four 27 Lap Segments were run to determine the overall winner. Current points’ leader Robert Tucker claimed the overall win on the strength of winning the first and last segment, accumulating 22 points. Going into the last segment Adam Pierson was in the drivers’ seat, having won segment two and amassing only 11 points through the first three segments, but a loose wheel cover forced Pierson to the pits during a caution period to have it removed. He returned but could only muster a fourteenth place finish, giving him 25 points and second overall. Kevin Chaffee was third with 26 points. Tanner Siemons and Jordan Fornwalt completed the overall top five finish.

The Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes found Bob Kilburn take the lead when the green flag flew. Tanner Siemons settled into second and for twenty five laps tried every way imaginable to get around Kilburn, his opportunity finally came with five laps to go when he got under Kilburn entering turn three and claimed the lead with four laps to go. At the Checkers it was Tanner Siemons with his first win of the season. Current Points leader Chris LaForest made a late race move to finish second with Jason Colbeth third. Adam Pierson, subbing for his father Gene, was fourth with Jason Horniak fifth.

The race of the night belonged to the Laquerre’s Sports USAC Dirt Midgets. Rookie Justin Phillips led the first lap in the Ray Miller 1m but from there it was the Will Hull/Seth Carlson show. Hull flew to the lead on the high side on lap two after starting eighth. Just two laps later Carson arrived in second and started to challenge for the top spot as the duo ran numerous laps side by side before Carlson slipped into the lead on the low side. Six laps later Hull once again claimed the lead, also using the low side. Carlson used the last five laps trying to get back by Hull but his charge fell just short at the line giving Will Hull his second USAC Dirt Midget win of the season. Seth Carlson was second with Justin Phillips third. Derek O’Hearn and Joe Krawiec rounded out the top five.

Ryan Christian continued his dominance in the C.A. Miller Late Models taking the win after taking the lead from John Neddo with twelve laps complete. Neddo would claim second with rookie George Osgood coming back to finish third after being the cause of the first caution of the race. Todd Dunham and Josh Bussino completed the top five.

The Weglarz Property Services Four Cylinders saw Danny Doyle take the lead after a lap eight caution and fend off the hard charges of Jason Porter as the two ran side by side for the last few laps before Danny Doyle edged ahead to take the win. Jason Porter was second with Jesse Durkee claiming third, working his way back through the field after being the cause of the lap eight caution. Kevin LaForest and Kelly Miller Jr completed the top five.

The Wingless Auto Club was also on hand with Jamie Glidden making a pass for the lead just past the halfway point of the event. He ran to the victory with Sam Comeau second, Mark Cole third, Doug McPhail fourth and Wade Prentice fifth.
