Another great night of Friday Night action is complete at The Bullring, and fans, the racing sure was intense! First out on the speedway was Modified Street, where Bo Allison took the win over Clayton Forsyth. Modified Mini was up next where Darren Goins took the win over Dustin Stephens. Super Street was the next to get the call, where Taylor Sutton claimed the win over a hard-charging Rick Webb. Pony Stock was the next feature where Clay Henderson snapped Allen Henderson’s win streak to claim the checkers. Ruben Mayfield set fast time with an 11.515 and led flag-to-flag to win over Perry Delaney and Josh Collins, while Daniel Sizemore survived a protest to claim the win over Nick Adams and David Singleton!
Next up for the Spring City Raceway is the Speedway Videos 300 for the Mod Lites! Racing action will take place in ALL classes, with the addition of the Southern Mod Lite Racing Series. All heat races will be 6 laps in length. The Mod Lites will have a 25 lap feature, while all other classes will run 20. Gates open at 5:00p, drivers meeting at 7:15p, with hotlaps around 7:30p.

For the first feature of the night, it’ll be the Modified Street division out on the speedway. Only two cars signed in for the night, with Bo Allison holding off Clayton Forsyth to claim the win.
Next out on the speedway would be the Modified Mini division. Six cars were signed in, but one broke during the heat race, and the other broke while sitting at the trailer. When Mikey Roberts’ machine left the trailer, his crew members noticed a puddle of oil, and Roberts’ machine was called back to the trailer. Four drivers would take the green flag, and at the end of the 12 lap feature, Darren Goins would take the win over Dustin Stephens and Allen Henderson.
Next to take to the track was the Super Street division, and this one was exciting to the end! Taylor Sutton quickly claimed the race lead from the get-go, while the rest of the field would not fall far behind. Unfortunately for last week’s winner, Allen Walker, the night didn’t go well and he was not allowed to repeat as mechanical troubles struck. Rick Webb would lose touch of Sutton, but over the course of the final 7 laps or so, he would run down Sutton, but in the end, he didn’t have enough laps to get around Sutton. The left-rear brake rotor on Webb’s machine was clearly glowing, which resulted in a fire under his machine. Track officials instructed him to climb out of the car, but he would drive around the track. The fire would be put out briefly, but would reignite, requiring the Wolf Creek Fire Department to act. After the fire was out and the smoke settled, all would be fine on Webb’s car.
Next on the speedway was the Pony Stock division. Allen Henderson went into the night’s feature undefeated, but had an uphill climb as he would start third. Clay Henderson and Allen Henderson would race hard over the course of the feature, but Todd Spivey had other plans as he blistered the field. He would pull to the back bumper of the top 2 drivers, only to suffer a broken transmission that ended his night. Clay Henderson broke the win streak for Allen Henderson and claimed the checkers. Josh Walker came home in the 3rd spot.
Next out on the speedway was the Limited Late Model division. Last week’s show saw several cars from the nearby 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, TN venture to “The Bullring”. Jason Cardwell however would not make the return after he would break a transmission at 411 and discover a major engine problem. Ruben Mayfield was the fastest cat in qualifying, as he topped the speed chart with a blistering lap of 11.515! Josh Collins would set outside the front row with an equally blistering lap of 11.587! This feature was plagued by several cautions, and after the dust finally settled, Ruben Mayfield would lead flag-to-flag to claim the win. Perry Delaney claimed 2nd, while Josh Collins came home in 3rd.
The final feature of the night was the division featured in the Battle at the Bullring, as drawn in the drivers meeting. Blake Hall would set fast time with a lap of 14.880. Outside front row was Nathan Adams with a lap of 14.923. The Battle at the Bullring was won by Nathan Adams, with Blake Hall coming in 2nd. This feature featured some hard, clean racing for the full 20 laps. Blake Hall would lead the way through a majority of that feature, making a couple of mistakes that bunched the field up, but nobody could make the pass. On a restart with a handful of laps remaining, he’d push the gas, but immediately in turn 1, his machine would lose power. This would hand the lead over to Daniel Sizemore, who had stalked Nathan Adams for much of the feature and had just claimed the 2nd spot before the previous caution. Sizemore would run the remaining laps at the point and steal the win over Nathan Adams. Nathan Adams would lodge a technical protest against the cylinder head of Daniel Sizemore’s machine. Sizemore would elect to counter-protest, at which Adams refused and was disqualified. Sizemore would tear down to prove his legality. He was found legal, so the win stood. Blake Hall was awarded the $100 for the Battle at the Bullring as Adams forfeited all monies earned for the night due to the disqualification. Nick Adams would score 2nd, with David Singleton being awarded the 3rd spot.
