                                                            McKean Masters Mr Gas Late Models

For the first time this season, Eddy McKean came through with a main event win, competing in the Mr. Gas Late Models series Saturday night at Magic Valley Speedway.

McKean lined up fifth at the start of the race in a field of 13 contestants and took over the lead position from Norm Hatke on the ninth lap. Rick Fowble was able to make his way into second on the same lap in a caution-free race.

In the end, McKean navigated his way around the track without missing a mark to cross the finish line 1.213 seconds ahead of his closest rival Fowble. Mike Greco came from eighth in the field to finish third in the 50-lap race.

In the NAPA Street Stocks, Kendel Woll never saw the back of another car as he led from start to finish in the 20-lap main event race. John Newell gave him all he could muster at the finish, but Woll was able to hold on by 0.295 seconds for his second win of the season.

Ray Homolka continued to be a top contender for the championship with another win in the Brennan’s Carpet Pony Stocks division. Homolka took over the lead from Jerry Slocum just past the halfway mark of the 20-lap main event race.

Todd Audet challenged Homolka for the win but at the finish line Homolka nipped Audet by just more than half a second for the victory.

Bob Gilligan jumped to an early lead in the Quale’s Electronics Hornets main event and held the position to the finish. Gilligan’s grandson Ty Garibay worked on Gilligan to the bitter end but settled for second, followed by Brandon Mortensen in third.

Camron Madson overtook Troy Peterson and later Austin Hager to win the 30-lap Legends race. Madson started deep in the field of 13 entrants but took over the lead with just five laps remaining in the event.
