HESSTON, PA - Goshorn Racing Supplies presented the Mark Goshorn/Jamie Peterson Memorial on Saturday night at Hesston Speedway with Derek Byler taking the win in the limited late models, Bill Henney in the street stocks, Joe Dearmitt in the hobby stocks, Dave Leidy in the four cylinders and Brian Deihl in the American Outlaws.
The late models saw a side-by-side battle for that lead at the start with Derek Byler on the inside and Tim Smith on the outside, with Byler leading at the line. Byler then held on with Smith getting a shot the lead on restarts, but then by the 12th lap it was Brad Kling who moved into second after dropped Smith out in a crash.
While in second, Kling didn’t run the same groove as Byler, he used all the other grooves trying to get past the leader and into the top spot, but Byler was tough and held off all the challenges that he was handed and he took the victory over Kling, Matt Parks, Mike Shoemaker and Rick Singleton. Heat wins went to Tim Smith, Derek Byler and Mike Shoemaker.
The street stock feature it was all Bill Henney but he far from d ominated like he did in the past. Henney took the lead at the start from Cris Edwards Jr., and Jesse Snyder followed Henney to second, then Snyder tried to get past Henney, but he eventually used up his tires and began to fall backwards. Edwards and Khi Swanger then battled for the runner up spot, with Henney taking the win, Edwards winning the battle for second and Swanger third. Snyder and Tim Brindle completed the top five. Khi Swanger and Bill Henney split the heat wins.
The hobby stocks were led to the line with Josh Berrier beating Mike Grubb into the first turn with Joe Dearmitt a close second. Berrier was strong and held off all of the challenges that Dearmitt could throw at him. Several cautions slowed the race, with Berrier holding off the attempts by Dearmitt every restart and slowly opening an advantage, but as the race was slowed on lap 14, Berrier became the next caution, when he lost a right rear wheel and ended up out of the race. At the line it was Dearmitt getting his first win of the season over Gary Morder, Curtis Guyer, Grubb and Joe Hammers. Heat wins went to Gary Morder, Curtis Guyer and Joe Hammers
The four cylinder division returned for a visit for the first time in about two years with Ronnie Garlock and Shawn Moore leading the field to the start with Garlock taking the lead Matt Williamson falling into second. The top two kept changing as Steve Hanes took second on lap four before losing it one lap later to Dave Leidy. Wit h just two laps remaining it was Leidy who took the lead when Garlock pitted. Leidy then held off Moore for the win. The top five were Leidy, Moore, Gary Hendershot, Sonny Williamson and Matt Williamson. There were no heats.
For the first time ever the American Outlaws made an appearance with Glenn Elliott and Brooks Coleman leading the field to the start with Coleman spinning in turn two and being collected by Randy Smith. The complete restart saw Brian Deihl take the lead and never get a serious threat from anyone, but second kept changing, as Elliott was second for a while before Bill Brown Jr. took second, but then he dropped out giving second back to Elliott. At the line it was Deihl taking the win over Elliott, Kevin Palmer, Al Daniels and Allen Daniels. Heat wins were split between Brian Deihl and Kevin Palmer.
