Magic Valley Speedway



            This weekend at the Magic Valley Speedway the Intermountain Outlaw Modifieds made their first of 3 apppearances for the 2013 season.

            As expected it was another dominating performance for defending ASA  Modified national champion Shelby Stroebel, as he led 35 laps in route to earning his second win of the season. The first caution of the night came on lap 6 when race leader Tim Elam spun out on the exit of turn four and collected the #98 of Rick Fowble. Initially it appeared as if Fowble had sustained damage to the right front of his car, however, he elected to stay on the track and not pit and ended up finishing in the third position. Jentry Pisca, who already has a win on the season drove from a 7th starting spot to finish in the second position. Dell Scott finished fourth, and it was the 17-year-old female driver of Caitlin Stroebel who rounded out the top five. The Intermountain Outlaw Modifieds will be making their second appearance at the Magic Valley Speedway on June 22nd.


            In the Commercial Tire Superstock class it was another successful night of racing for the Pehrson Motorsports team as they were able to put together a one-two finish with Dan Pehrson winning, and Casey Pehrson finishing in a close second. For the majority of the race it seemed as if Willie “the outlaw” Dalton had the car to beat as he led right up until lap 32 when he and Kris McKean got together bringing out the second caution of the night. Jim Hall, who was running third, inherited the lead with Daniel Shirley running third. On the white flag lap Shirley got into the back of the Hall spinning both of them out, at which point Pehrson took the lead and captured the checkered flag for his second main event win of the season. Allen Williams, Kris McKean, and Tony Phernetton rounded out the top five for the evening.


            In the Brennans Carpet Street Stocks it was Mitchell Pehrson getting the win and earning his third victory on the season. Pehrson, who started near the back, drove a patient race and eventually made his way to the front and didn't stop until the car was in victory lane. With as much luck as Pehrson has seen this year, the opposite could be said of 17-year-old Jay McDonald. For the second time this season McDonald found his way into the wall. This time it was a head-on collision  in the middle of turns 1 and 2. “As soon as he hit the gravel it was like an ice skating rink” said Fred McDonald, Jay's Crew Chief and father. Joshua Hunt and Russel Dalton finished second and third to round out the top three for the night.


            In the Project Filter Pro 4s first appearance of the 2013 season it was Joe Barton in the #58 car getting the win. It didn't come easy however as the #33 car of Ken Chandler began to come on late in the race and start to put the pressure on Barton. Unfortunately for Chandler the twenty lap main event didn't provide enough time and Barton was able to come away with the win.


            In the Quale's Electronics Junior Stingers it appeared as if Hailey Douglas was well on her way to a third victory of the season right up until lap 9 when her and Makayla Woll got together, Douglas spun out and was then hit hard in the left-front by the #9 of Tameka Dalton bringing out the first and only caution of the night. Douglas' car came off the track on the hook effectively ending her night. Trenton Thomas got the win with Makayla Woll and Samantha Shindle rounding out the top three.


            The O'reilly Auto Parts Thunder Dogs concluded the night of action in dramatic fashion as the Hoffa-Mobile was able to capture the victory with Soccer Mom finishing second, and newcomer The Hulk finishing third.
