Sherman strikes again, Dippman goes back to back, and Dancer grabs NRA win at Limaland

by Gerry Keysor



Lima, OH

After losing the last two events to rain, the fans, teams, and staff at Limaland Motorsports Park were all ready for a great night of racing, and they were treated to that plus great weather on Friday night at the 1/4 mile of Thunder. No. 65 Todd Sherman grabbed the win in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds, while No. 74D Craig Dippman won his 2nd Budweiser Thunderstock A Main in a row, and No. 49 Shawn Dancer picked up the win in the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders.

Kicking off the night’s racing were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified as part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series.  32 teams signed in for racing action, and they were whittled down to the 20 starters in the A Main.  It was No. 96 Aaron Orr and No. 16 Jeff Koz leading the field to green as chaos erupted in turn one beginning with Orr tangling with No. 34X Shane O’Connor, and 5 other cars piling up in turn 1.  After the accident was cleared up, a complete restart ensued with Koz grabbing the early lead.  Churobusco, Indiana’s Todd Sherman starting working on Koz right away but Koz was able to hold off Sherman thru 2 cautions and restarts on laps 4 and 7, but Koz would be docked 2 spots for hitting the front-stretch cone, handing the lead to Sherman.  Former stock car track champion No. 463 Daniel Sanchez found himself in 2nd and battled with Koz until Koz got by for good on lap 9.  Shane O’Connor battled his way back up to 5th before getting sideways in turn 2 to bring out the caution, his 2nd, ending his night.  Sherman would pull away to victory over Koz, Sanchez, No. 95J Jerry Bowersock, and No. 17N Dillon Nussbaum completing the top 5.

Next up would be the Bud Thunderstock in their 15 lap A Main as part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series.  No. 1W Mark Wooten and No. 26 Justin Long would lead the field to green but just like the Modified feature, calamity ensued with 4 cars piling up in turn 2 causing a complete restart. Craig Dippman would waste no time in grabbing the lead and trying to set sail on the field, but a caution for debris would wave on lap 3. Dippman would once again pull away with the lead, but No. 7C Jordan Conover was charging thru the field, making his way up to 2nd on lap 8.  Caution would wave once again on lap 10 as UNOH Racer Jamie Sullivan would spin her No. 00 right in front of Dippman, narrowly missing the leader.  On the restart Conover would peek to the inside of Dippman, but the No. 74D would charge to his 2nd straight win, with Conover 2nd, No. 11 UNOH Racer Randy Giroux 3rd, No. 22T Tony Anderson 4th, and No. 23 Casey Barr completing the top 5.  

Completing the night’s racing action were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders. No. 11N Harli White, and No. 49 Shawn Dancer would lead the field to green with Dancer grabbing the lead over White and No. 28M Connor Morrell.  Caution would wave on lap 10 for No. 5J Jake Hesson spinning in turn 4.  Harli White would bring out the next caution on lap 15, doing a 360 in turn 4, nearly collecting No. 22M Dan McCarron.  On the restart, No 22H Randy Hannagan would crack the top 5 after starting last. Hannagan would power to 3rd by lap 17 when the caution waved again, this time for the No. 16B of Zane DeVault coming to a stop in turn 4. Hannagan looked poised to make a challenge to the top 2 until the caution flag waved one final time on lap 21 for No. 18 Todd Heuerman spinning in turn 2.  Dancer would survive the final restart and grab the win over No. 17 Jared Horstman, McCarron, Hannagan, and No. 23 Devon Dobie
