Limaland Motorsports Park wrapped up the 2019 points season on Friday night with the 22nd Annual Points Championship presented by Alexander and Bebout. Lima’s Tony Anderson prevailed as the 2019 Bud Thunderstock Track Champion for the 12th time, while Todd Sherman from Churubusco, Indiana was crowned track champion in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds for the 7th time.

Kicking the night off were the Budweiser Thunderstocks in their 15 lap A Main. No. 7W Dan Wooten and No. 82 Chris Douglas would make up the front row, with Douglas grabbing the early lead. No. 7C Jordan Conover came into the night 24 points behind in the points battle and tried all he could do to close the gap. Conover would hound Douglas throughout the race, trying low and high lines to find a way to grab the win. Meanwhile No 463 Daniel Sanchez who came into the night leading the points chase over Tony Anderson by 6 points, suffered heartbreak when contact with another car cut down the left rear tire on his car, ending his night. Douglas would hold off Conover’s advances to pick up the victory, No. J2 Rob Trent would finish 3rd, No 23 Casey Barr would finish 4th, and by virtue of his 5th place feature finish, Tony Anderson claimed his 12th Limaland track championship just 10 months after open heart surgery threatened to end his career.

Next up were the Non Wing Sprint Cars making their lone appearance for 2019 in a 25 lap feature. No 1H Korbyn Hayslett and No 2DI Dustin Ingle would lead the field to the initial green flag, but would have to relinquish the front row when the start was called back for firing too early. This handed the front row to Wapakoneta, Ohio’s “Magic Man” Mike Miller in the No 82, and No. 21K Kody Swanson. Miller and Swanson would battle side by side for the first half lap, before Miller would settle to the bottom of the track and set sail. No. 33M Matt Westfall methodically picked his way to 2nd on lap 16 after starting 12th and began reeling in the leader in lapped traffic. It seemed that Westfall would come up just short but was able to get an amazing run underneath Miller off of turn 4 on the final lap to grab the victory. Miller would finish 2nd, with No. 0 Steve Irwin 3rd, Swanson 4th and No. 18 Dallas Hewitt completing the top 5.

Wrapping up the night were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds in their 20 lap A Main. No. 65 Todd Sherman, and No. 22T Tony Anderson would make up the front row, with Anderson grabbing the early lead. No. 95J Jerry Bowersock used the middle of the track to track down Anderson and grab the lead on lap 4. Anderson would stay close throughout the race, peeking under Bowersock multiple times. Meanwhile, No. 3W Dylan Woodling began to charge to the front on the top of the racetrack, getting by No. 34X Shane O’Connor, and Sherman. As the laps wound down, Woodling would make a final charge, nipping Anderson at the line for 2nd. Anderson would finish 3rd with O’Connor 4th and by finishing 5th, Todd Sherman picked up his 7th Limaland Points Championship in the Northwest Physical Therapy Modifieds.
