Mesquite, TX (Au 25) - John Carney came from the third row to pass Bandon Berryman for the lead on his way to victory at the ASCS Gulf South Region vs Lone Star Region Shooutout at Devil's Bowl Speedway Saturday night.
Thomas Blackwell held off Trent Dorman to win the USA Modifieds main. Cody Simpson topped the USA Limited Modifieds. Wendall Bolden made it two Late Models wins in a row.
#224 John Carney
Brandon Berryman led the ASCS sprint cars field to the green flag, only to have the red wave seconds later.
First B Main winner Martin Edwards got caught in the pack diving into turn one and flipped into the infield. He walked away, somewhat unhappy.
#15B Thomas Blackwell
After winning his heat, Thomas Blackwell started on the pole for the USA Modifieds 15-lapper. The other heat winner Trent Dorman started alongside.
It was Blackwell who won the drag race to turn one. He stayed out front all the way to the checkered flag. Dorman was right on his bumper most of the race, but could not find an opening to make a pass.
Ronnie Sigman was third at the checkered flag.
#81B Cody Simpson
Cody Simpson started on the outside of the front row for the 12-lap main for the USA Limited Modifieds. He held off Jeff McGibboney for the opening laps.
Chris Cleveland took second on a fourth lap restart, and Simpson had to be thinking of the race a month ago when he was leading, and forced into the pits by problems with his car.
But he had no such trouble tonight, staying out front to take the win ahead of Cleveland and Pepper Rhea.
Points leader Jimmy Staats briefly took second at mid-race, but something soon broke on his car and he pulled into the pits. Staats, Jimmy Criswell and Tim Simmons won the heat races..
#28B Wendall Bolden
It has been a rough season for 2011 Late Model Champion Wendall Bolden. Problems early in the year have taken him out of the points race.
They appear to have things worked out, with Bolden taking his second Late Model feature win in a row Saturday night.
On a sixth lap restart, Bolden took second. Right on Miller's rear bumper, Bolden was able to claim the lead with a couple laps to go when Miller slipped over the cushion in turn two. Patrik Daniel also got past Miller to finish secon d with Miller falling to third.
Bolden and Troy Tindall won the heats.
When the race got started Berryman pulled away from outside front row starter Brandon Hahn. John Careny came from outside the third row into third place. The leaders quickly circled the half-mile clay oval, catching the back of the pack on the sixth lap.
Passing the slower cars was difficult as the sprinters dried the track. Carney took second on the third lap, and went three wide in turn four on the eighth circuit to claim the lead. the caution flew on the 13th lap as third running Matt Covington tangled with a lapped car, also collecting fifth running Tommy Bryant.
Through four additional restarts, Carney held the lead. Danny Jennings came from tenth at the start to challenge Carney on the starts, but ninth starting Andy Shouse was making moves with runs around the bottom of turns one and two on those restarts. Shouse got past Jennings for the runner-up spot on the last restart, with Jennings taking the checkered in third place.
Edwards and Dale Wester wond the B Mains. Carney, Covington, Bryant and Hahn won their heats. Preston Peebles won the other heat, but broke as he took the checkered flag and was unable to start the feature.
