Pole position leads racer to win

Tribune staff reports

Defending Brownstown Speedway Super Late Model track champion Jeremy Hines (Seymour) got his first “P3 Graphix” Super Late Model feature victory of 2015 at the Speedway on Saturday night.

Hines took advantage of his pole position starting spot for the main event, jumping out to the early race lead and never looking back.

Hines was followed at the finish by Chad Stapleton of Edinburgh, Marty O’Neal of Martinsville, Steve Barnett of Franklin, and Alan Magner of North Vernon.

Edinburgh’s Joe Godsey, the 2014 Modified track champion, picked up his second feature win in a row in the “Fast Max” UMP Modifieds.

Godsey, in his TSR (Tony Stewart Racing) Modified, held off Victor Lee of Danville, Kentucky, Derek Groomer of Bloomington, Dennis Boknecht of Seymour and Bedford’s Jared Bailey at the checkered flag.

Seymour’s Tyler Cain and Matt Boknecht have battled all year in Woolston Automotive Super Stock racing action and are the only two drivers to win features in that division this season.

Saturday night was no different, as Cain and Boknecht once again battled door-to-door, with Cain coming out as the victor.

Cain now has registered seven wins on the year at the Speedway and is the current National DirtCar UMP point’s leader.

Boknecht finished second with fellow-Seymour resident Jamey Wilson.

Seymour’s Kevin Jones and Freetown’s Tom Ault completed the top five.

In Tony Ogle Expedited Express Pure Stock action Seymour’s Jason Combs registered win No. 3 for 2015.

Combs was followed by current Pure Stock point leader Chris Workman, of Clarksville, North Vernon’s Donnie Wilson, Heltonville’s Zachary Stalker and Mickey Hines, of Scipio, at the line.

The Drainmaster Drain & Sewer Service Hornet division saw Austin Burton (Edinburgh) cruise an easy victory over Columbus’ Lee Stephenson, Brian Moore of Clarksville, Brian Moore of Bedford and JJ Pendygraft, of Salem.

Burton has three feature wins in Hornet action this racing season.

Brownstown Speedway will not be racing Saturday night, as preparations for the 2015 Jackson County Fair will be underway.

Motorsports fans won’t have to wait long, however, as the Jackson County Fair has Demolition Derby action July 28, Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Tractor/Truck pulls July 29 and dirt racing action July 30 and Aug. 1 as part of Jackson County Fair’s grandstand event line up.
