Night one of a two night show, kicked off with a bang Friday at the Magic Valley Speedway, as Jeremy Doss showed his competitors he would be a factor to contend with for $10,000 purse on the line for Saturday’s Century Motorsports Southern Idaho 200.

            Jeremy Doss was fast off of the truck and only got faster, as he broke the six-year-old track record laid down by Dave Minegar on Sept. 8 2007, with a 14.217second qualifying lap. With the entire field being inverted after qualifying, Doss started at the back of the pack in the 19th position and methodically worked his way through the field, before taking the lead on lap 60. The win didn't come easy, as the caution flag flew with just 4 laps to go, giving Jason Jefferson and Jonathon Gomez one final shot at Doss. When the green flag flew Jefferson made a charge to the inside but came up unsuccessful as Doss was just too strong. Jeremy Doss is riding a hot streak at the MVS, going into the 200 lap event; Doss has won two times in as many career starts, at the 1/3 mile paved oval.

            It was a tough night for Hannah Newhouse as she was caught up in an incident midway through the race that sent her towards the back of the pack.  However, with a cool head, she was able to fight her way back to the 9th position. It was a good night for Local driver and last year's Feature Division Track Champion, Kris McKean, as he finished 10th, with a right front tire going down during the final 15 laps.

            The competitive nature of the Commercial Tire Superstocks shined brightly last night, as Stormin' Norman Hatke in the # 50 racecar, battled his way into victory lane, in only his second start of the season. Hatke was able to hold off a last lap challenge by Casey Pehrson, # 26 racecar. In victory lane Hatke let it be known how happy he was with the car, as well as, the clean driving style of second and third place finishers; Daniel Shirley and Casey Pehrson, respectively.

            In the Brennan's Carpet Street Stock division, Peck, # 14 racecar, was able to hold off the 27 car of Dalton to post his first victory of the season. It was a tough night for points leader Mitch Pehrson, who was caught up in an early wreck on lap 5, when the #30 of Joshua Hunt pounded the wall on the exit of turn 4. Hunt was unable to return to the race and Pehrson made a brief appearance back before pulling off and parking the #18 for the rest of the night. Justin Boyd, Elijah Fiscus, and Harold "The Terminator" Wartluft, rounded out the top 5 for the evening.

            The Sharis' Cafe Hornets concluded Friday night’s action in dramatic style as the #95 of Eddy Cole and the #15 of Roy Boots, once again beat each other up all the way to the checkered flag. And for the second straight week, it was Eddy Cole coming away with the victory with Boots finishing in the second position. Jerry Frederickson, #99, recorded his first top 3 of the season in only his second start of the season.  James Cole, who brought out a new race-car, rounded out the top four positions.
