Benjamin Nott grabbed the win in the Flinn Stocks while Zach Olger took home the win in the KFC Late Models. Chad Wernette brought home the win in the Allstar Performance IMCA Mods and Andrew Fidler bested a tight field in the Engine Pro Pro Truck division. Finally, Will Stanley made his first run at CMS in a year or so and showed 'em he hadn't forgot how to win as he scored the Street Stock feature. More later on Sunday!

There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.

May 7, 2011

Derek Schestag grabbed the lead of the Port City Pro Stock feature, followed by Barry Rinard, Blake Hollenbeck, Rodney Heikkila, Guy Hommerding, Schestag held the lead for several laps but Rinard came under him in turns one and two to take it away. By this time, Chaney Newland had worked his way from 11th to second followed closely by Mike Husted. Rinard fought off Newland for several laps as Vern Buskirk also joined the fray and the front four cars were barely separated.

Pro Stock Feature Winner - Derek Schestag, May 7, 2011A spinner in turn two tightened up an already super tight field and when the green fell, Rinard jumped back to the lead. Just as he began a move to pass, Newland broke, leaving Rinard all alone out front. Husted and Buskirk began to close in on him but he held his ground. A final caution for a car into the wall with three to go set the stage for a wild finish. Husted almost pulled even with the leader but Rinard was not to be denied. He was followed by Husted, Buskirk, Larry Kosloski, Hollenbeck, Scott Bouck, Jacob Headley, Chad Raby, Gary Buskirk, and Newland.

Gordon Snyder won the B Main with heat gold going to Schestag, and Heikkila.
