New winners crowned at Bemidji Speedway
It was Scout Night at Bemidji Speedway Sunday and the scouts were treated to great action. Next Sunday the track will host a very special event, the Race of Champions beginning at 5 p.m. The winners of each of the classes earn a spot in the Race of Champions next fall.
Bill Chaboyea and Corey Peterson lined up in the front row. Peterson took the early lead and held off Chaboyea the entire race to pick up another feature win. Joel Harvey, Chad Puschinsky, and Don Scholler made up the top five.
Tim LaVoi led from start to finish and remained unbeaten at the Speedway. LaVoi was followed by Sherman Rogalski Jr., Andy Swartz, Leahna Barrett and Tom Aderman.
Don Kolkin owned the pole in the Hornets and held off hard-charging Josh Seely-Sautbine to pick up the feature win. Joe Doti, Mike Reynolds, and John Aderman completed the top five.
A small field of Street Stocks were led by Dustin Puffe and Scotty Messner. Puffe powered into the front and held off repeated challenges by Messner and Don Bowman to win another feature for the Bemidji racer. Messner was second with Bowman third.
Tommy McGough worked his way to the front of the pack and survived numerous challenges by Tom Silver to earn the victory. Conrad Schwin, Kevin Bahr and Brady LoVoi made up the top-five in a very entertaining and exciting race.
In what would become one of the more popular races of the night the Super Stocks were led by Keith Keena and long-time local favorite Gordie Lancaster. Lancaster took the lead into turn one and never gave it back as he took his first checkered flag of the year.
Rick Jacobson powered through traffic from his fourth-row start to take the lead and never looked back. Skyler Smith was second with Doug VanMill third, Chris Dudley fourth and Adam Gajeski fifth.
