                                                                    McKean outduels McKean at MVS 

    With the No. 88 car still out of commission after taking a pounding on the opening night for the series, Jerry McKean pulled another car out of his hat Saturday at Magic Valley Speedway to capture the Budweiser Super Stocks main event. Driving the No. 22 car on loan from former track champion Jonathon Gomez, McKean started from the pole position in the 30-lap race. 

    While McKean’s number stayed at the top of the board the entire race, it was not without constant pressure from another McKean — nephew Kris. Kris managed to find Jerry’s bumper in the turns and tried high and low to get around him on the straight-aways, but to no avail. “We couldn’t stay with him coming off the corner and so we just couldn’t get a line on him,” Kris McKean said. “We got under him a couple of times but couldn’t quite get up to his door. 

    I got him sideways a little bit but it’s early in the season.” For Jerry McKean, he did what he thought was needed to maintain his position. “I knew he was behind me, then he decided to cut me off in lap traffic — so I decided to four-lane race,” Jerry said. “He was driving in hard into the corners but I was faster coming out. Jonathon and his crew worked on the car last week and got it going pretty good.” 

    Nuthak rounds up NAPA Street Stocks victory Craig Nuthak, who also started from the pole position, had his hands full with Rob Roche in the NAPA Street Stocks main event, but was able to defend his spot to capture his first win of the season. Nuthak edged Roche across the line by just .313 seconds followed by Chase Carraway in third. 

    Audet by a nose in Brennan’s Carpet Pony Stocks The pole position was the place to start for the other local class as Todd Audet led the field to a narrow win in the main event. Ray Homolka and Wade Henslee battled Audet in the final laps and it was down to the wire as the trio came to the finish line, but Audet held steady for his first win of the year. 

    Sellars captures Super Sixes win Taking the lead in Lap 5 from Andrew Graybeal, Randy Sellars went into defense mode for the remainder of the race as Jasen Skyberg tailed him to the checkered. Meanwhile Bob Parks and Dean Waltman scuttled for third, with Waltman getting the position with just six laps to go in the 25-lap event.
