Plymouth Speedway Races With Spectators In Attendance Last Weekend

Austen Hubbard would go on to win the Street Stock feature in front of a grandstand with spectators in attendance for the first time this 2020 season.


[Special from Greg Hildebrand]

Plymouth Speedway‘s first race back with spectators in the grandstands and they were treated to an exciting evening of racing. The five featured classes continued with a night of non-points racing which comes to an end next week as the routine begins to come back gradually.

Street Stock

Austen Hubbard collected the first checkered flag of the evening in the Street Stock division. Hubbard started the race in Third and spent a good deal of the race, mixing it up with Battleground, Indiana’s Preston Oberle. The front row starters were Wally Kerst and Jason Fritz.

Fritz would hang around the front with RJ Akers eventually taking the lead. Akers would lead most of the feature race with Hubbard close behind. Late in the race, Trevor Bitterling and Wade Clemmons, closing. Clemmons earned the hard charger of the race award. Hubbard would inherit the lead, and go on to win after Akers suffered a flat left rear. Bitterling and Clemmons rounded out the podium in Second and Third.

Saturday’s Street Stock podium consisted of Austen Hubbard in first, Trevor Bitterling in second, and in third was Wade Clemmons.

600cc Non-Wing Mini-Sprints

The 600cc Non-Wing Mini-Sprints saw 22 cars take the green flag for their 25-lap feature event. Cody Williams sat on the pole with Nick Schaefer on the outside. Dylan Woodling started in the second row in the fourth position. At the drop of the green flag, these three got out front, setting a blistering pace. Williams led with Woodling and Schaefer battling with fourth-place finisher Chad Hartzell. That is how they would finish with Jacob Ruppe getting the hard charger moving from a 12th starting spot to finish sixth.

Derek Losh won the UMP Modified race Saturday, June 13 at the Plymouth Speedway over a field of 23 cars.

UMP Modifieds

UMP Modifieds put on an exciting feature with Todd Sherman sitting in the pole-position of a 23 car field. Derek Losh would start on the outside of the front row, and he couldn’t ask for a better starting spot. Losh jumped out to an early lead with Nick Allen in tow. These two would build a cushion from the field until they encountered lap traffic. The eventual runner-up and hard charger, Brian Ruhlman, would make his way forward from the tenth starting spot. A yellow at the halfway point would clear lap traffic and bunched the leaders up again. Ruhlman would work his way past Allen, and that is how they would finish with Dillon Nusbaum just missing the podium in fourth.

Super Sports

Super Sports had a familiar face back on top of the podium with Ron Wilkes starting on the front row outside. Wilkes was able to get past pole-sitter Andy Bishop after several laps. Last week’s winning car, with Kody Conner at the wheel this week, started fourth and battled with Bishop to finish second. Kyle Anderson moved up five spots from his ninth starting position to finish just off the podium in fourth.

The top three Mini-Stock finishers were L-R Larry Bryie Jr., in third, Krystal Spaulding and winning was James Headley.

Four-Cylinder Mini Stocks

The four-cylinder Mini Stocks would wrap up the evening of racing with an eventful feature that saw several yellows early, as the 23-car field took several laps to settle in. James Headley collected his third feature in a row with a sixth-place start. He would glance off the outside wall in turn three early in the event but got it gathered up and held on to win. Finishing second was Krystal Spaulding, and in third was Larry Bryie Jr.
