Kennedale Speedway Park (Kennedale)
March 18 (Saturday)
After two weeks of wet weather, it was great to see the sunshine at Kennedale Speedway Park. A good crowd was on hand and they were ready to see some exciting racing. The racers did not disappoint. Check out the Stock Car feature finish below!
In the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint feature, it was not smooth sailing for some of the racers. George While, No. 10, and Ryan Hall, No. 79, took a hard roll down the back straight-a-way. Neither driver appeared to be injured. A few laps later, Nicholas Littlejohn, No. 21x, hit a rut and lost his rear wheel. That opened the door for Jeb Sessums, No. 01j, to sprint to the lead and to victory. John "the Rocket" Ricketts, No. 5r, settled for second, Marcus Thomas, No. 15t, was third, Kyle Jones, No. 04, was fourth and Claud Estes, No. 74e, was fifth. T. Russell, J. Emerson, D.J. Estes, S. Thompson, and J.D. Fry, rounded out the top ten. A good field of twenty-one cars started the feature.
