Kennedale Speedway Park (Kennedale)
February 25 (Saturday)
Kennedale Speedway Park held their first of two nights of racing for their Annual Spring Kickoff. Racing continues Sunday afternoon with the gates opening at 2 p.m. and racing starting at 4 p.m. Despite the colder weather, a great crowd was on hand to watch some exciting racing. The pits were full with over 160 cars that competed in five different classes. In the $1,000 to win IMCA RaceSaver Sprint feature, John "the Rocket" Ricketts, No. 5r, had a great run, but half way through the feature race, a caution came out. On the restart, Kyle Jones, No, 04, managed to slip past John for the lead and go on to take the feature win. Marcus Thomas, No. 15t, ended up second, John Ricketts, No. 5r, settled for third, George White, No. 10, was fourth, and Chad Wilson, No. 20, was fifth. B. Long, D.J. Estes, M. Melton, L. Scherb, and J. Sessions, rounded out the top ten. Twenty-three cars started the feature.
