Beautiful weather greeted the fans and teams at Limaland Motorsports Park on FAST Friday Night presented by the Stolly Insurance Group. The JLH General Contractors FAST 305 Championship Series presented by Engine Pro invaded the high banks of Limaland for the first time in 2018 with Fremont Ohio’s Jamie Miller picking up the feature win in the Ryan French owned No. 26. In the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds, No. 45P Brian Post picked up his first career Limaland victory. Shawn Valenti made it 2 in a row in Bud Thunderstock competition, winning in the Jeff Babcock owned No. 7b.

The JLH General Contracting FAST 305 Sprint Cars kicked off the night with Jamie Miller and No. 99 Alvin Roepke on the front row for the 25 lap feature. Miller would take off to a 7 car length lead right away on a heavy “cowboy up” style track which saw the leaders get into lapped traffic on lap 8. On lap 13, Roepke would benefit from the lapped traffic and grab the lead, while No. 77i John Ivy would make his way to the 3rd spot after starting 12th. Caution would wave on lap 17 for No. 46 Stuart Williams making contact with the front stretch wall and grinding to a stop entering turn 1. On the restart, Miller would get back by Roepke for the lead. On lap 19, No. 66 Chase Dunham would get into the turn 4 wall and get upside down. Dunham walked away under his own power. That would set up the final restart with Miller able to get away for good over a hard charging Ivy who finished 2nd, Roepke finished 3rd with No. 21 Dustin Stroup and No. 29 Bryan Sebetto completing the top 5. Heat races were won by Ivy, Sebetto and No. 4* Tyler Street

Next up were the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds in their 20 lap A Main. UNOH Racer WIll Norris in the UNOH No 71 and No. 3W Dylan Woodling would lead the field to the green flag, with Norris grabbing the early point. Woodling, No. 20K Bill Keeler and No. 45P Brian Post would fall in line. Post would take 3rd on lap 3, and set his sights on Woodling and Norris. Post took the lead for good on lap 7, with Sutter battling his way to 3rd. Post would pick up his first career Limaland feature win over No. 95J Jerry Bowersock, Sutter, No. 65 Todd Sherman, and Keeler. Heat Races were won by Woodling, Norris, and Post.

Completing the nights racing action were the Budweiser Thunderstocks. No. 7W Dan Wooten and No. 7B Shawn Valenti brought the field to green in the 15 lap A feature. Valenti would take the early lead with several cautions keeping the field bunched up until a final green flag run on lap 10 saw Valenti hold off a charging No. 463 Daniel Sanchez, with No. 22T Tony Anderson 3rd, UNOH Racer Nick Ronnebaum finishing 4th and No. J2 Rob Trent completing the top 5. Heat races were won by Sanchez, No. 15 Jordan Conover, and Valenti.
