Hello race fans! This is your St. Francois County Raceway Race Recap for the third night of action packed racing on May 6th. This recap is brought to you by Dale Mosier Auto Body. This night of racing was scheduled to be the fifth night of racing but due to rain it actually only the third night of racing and $5 night in the grandstands as well. With a large crowd in attendance, the racing was filled with action. On top of the weekly scheduled races, the promoters put on a Tire Race during intermission for the fans to enjoy eight of their favorite drivers race from the start of the front stretch to the end while rolling a tire. First tire to cross the finish line would be the winner. The catch to this race was that none of the tires were the same size. All the tires had a number painted on them and each driver had to draw a number to see what tire they could claim as theirs. The eight drivers that participated were: Super Street drivers Kevin Mosier and Jason Neel, B-modified drivers Shane Blair and Jeremy Welborn, A-modified drivers Jeff Asher and Tim Nash, and Sprint Car drivers Scottie Gretzmacher and Kevin Petty. Each driver raced down the front stretched but Tim Nash was the one that crossed the finish line first. The crowd seem to really enjoy the Tire Race as well as the prize that each driver threw out after finishing the race. The fans not only enjoyed the Tire Race but also seen to enjoy the entire night of racing and here is why.

Up first for this action packed night of racing was the Super Street class. The Super Street class had 18 cars in attendance divided evenly into three heat races, Heat race number one had six cars take the green flag and, in his return the driver’s seat of a race car, the number 50 of Kent Nations took the win.

The main event was definitely an interesting one. All 18 cars took the green flag in what was scheduled to be a 15 lap race. Due to the new time limit rule for this season, the 15 lap race was shortened significantly due to the amount of caution which drained the time down to nothing. After time expired, the number 40 car of Kevin Mosier found himself in victory lane after making a pass for the lead just moments before the race was over.
