Conover, Horstman, Koz winners on Firecracker Friday

July 1, 2016
Lima, OH

Beautiful weather and a lightning fast racetrack greeted the fans on Friday night at Limaland motorsports Park for the Independence Day weekend tradion of Firecracker Friday. All the fireworks were on the track with No. 7 Jordan Conover grabbing the win in the Bud Thunderstocks feature, No. 17 Jared Horstman winning the K&L ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders A Main, and No.16 Jeff Koz winning the K&N Filters UMP Modified feature.

The night kicked off with the weekly McDonalds Dash for Cash sponsored by Lewis Family McDonalds. The NRA Sprint Invaders had this weeks dash, and No. 22H Randy Hannagan appeared to continue his winning ways, grabbing the $100 win in the dash followed by No. B20 Butch Schroeder, and No. 12 Nick Roberts

In feature action, the Bud Thunderstocks would start the night with the 17th Annual Steve Brown Memorial, which had been rescheduled from May 20th due to rain. No. 67 “Chili Dog” Eddie Shaner would lead the field to green, but No. 22T Tony Anderson would shoot to the lead briefly before Shaner would battle back to the point. Jordan Conover would make his way to 3rd by lap 6, and use a lap 8 slide job to get by Anderson for 2nd. On lap 13, Conover would make a power move to the lead, charging past Shaner exiting turn 2 on the high side. Shaner and Anderson would do their best to try to close on Conover, with Shaner trying a slide job on the final lap, but Conover was too much on this night, picking up the $1000 win over Shaner, Anderson, No. 00 Blake Spalding with a great 4th place run, and No.27 Frank Paladino completing the top 5.

Next up were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders in their 25 lap A Main. Delphos, Ohio’s Shawn Dancer would lead the field to green in the Dancer Logistics No. 49. Dancer would use the high side of the racetrack to charge to a big lead early, but lapped traffic proved to be his undoing as No. 5M “Mad” Max Stambaugh, and No.17 Jared Horstman would make their moves as the trio battled thru lapped traffic. Stambaugh made a daring move to get by Dancer on lap 18, and Horstman would use a big slide job to get by Stambaugh on lap 21 and never look back. Stambaugh would hold on for 2nd, with Dancer 3rd, Hannagan 4th, and No. 2 Kyle Sauder completing the top 5.

Rounding out the night were the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds with a wild 20 lap feature that saw No. 45P Brian Post and No. 22T tony Anderson lead the field to green. Anderson would grab the early lead, but No. 18 Randy Lines of Marion Indiana would charge to the lead on lap 2. Meanwhile, Jeff Koz began his assault on the field, closing on Post on lap 3, and then passing Anderson on lap 6. Koz would tail Lines for several laps before making his move on lap 14 with a slide job in turns 1 and 2. Lines crossed over and battled back until caution flew for debris on lap 18. On the restart, Lines took one more shot at Koz, firing a big slider in turns 3 and 4, but Koz was able to crossover, regain the lead and cruise to victory over Lines, Post, Anderson and No. 3W Dylan Woodling.

Limaland is idle next Friday July 8th, but will be back in action on Friday July 15th for the “K&L Ready Mix Open Wheel Clash” featuring the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders competing for a top prize of $3000.
