K-C Raceway Buckeye 100 Champs- Steve Casebolt, Jr, Danny Smith, Doug Adkins, Jamie Adams Kids Bike Night next week! Bike Racing!
K-C Raceway Results
By Scott Wolfe CHILLICOTHE, OHIO- Four champions went down in the history books in the revived running of the Budweiser "Buckeye 100" Saturday night at Jeff and Vicki Schrader's K-C Raceway were Richmond, Indiana driver Steve Casebolt, Jr. (AMRA Late Models), Danny Smith (410 Sprints), Doug Adkins (AMRA Modifieds), and Jamie Adams (Hobby Stocks) claimed dramatic feature wins. In the tradition of the old Atomic Speedway cornerstone race, the "Buckeye 100", K-C featured 100 exciting laps of feature racing. Saturday, May 15 K-C hosts Pepsi-Kids Bike Night with bicycle racing in four divisions and all four classes of racing cars. Dash winner Duane Chamberlain and Steve Casebolt, Jr. paced the AMRA Late Model field to starter Daryl Owens' green flag with Casebolt quickly jumping into a commanding lead. Chamberlain and R.J. Conley followed in close pursuit as another battle developed between Jason Montgomery and Greggie Oliver for 5th. That duo was then pressed hard by hard-charging Bart Hartman in Mark Frazier's 9F. Oliver brought out the first caution on lap 14 after Casebolt had lapped five of the cars on the tail. The field was again slowed with Mike Bore sand Mike Wilson brought out cautions. From that point on Casebolt restarted with authority as close action took place for second between Chamberlain and Conley. Delmas Conley moved into fifth position on lap 18, and then something apparently broke on points' leader R.J. Conley's mount sending him hard, head-long into the turn four tire barrier. Conley emerged only shaken, but his Rocket was in need of major reconstruction before the next launch. Driving a steady race, Swartz took over seventh from Oliver and on lap 22 Scott Wolfe began to pressure Kenny Christy for 8th. Buckeye 100 Champ Casebolt worked traffic first to the line, while Chamberlain rode the high side to edge Hartman in a very close second place run. Behind third place Hartman were Jason Montgomery, Delmas Conley, Audie Swartz, Greggie Oliver, Kenny Christy, Scott Wolfe, and Dean Boyd. Boyd was the hard charger in a 15th to 10th place run.
Former Danville, IN driver and one of the Icons of modern day sprint car racing, Danny Smith, now of Chillicothe, Ohio is two things: Smooth and Fast! The two ingredients proved to be the winning recipe in Smith's second win of the weekend and 4 of 5 wins on the local racing scene in 2010. Now, as Buckeye 100 champ, Smith adds a new gem to his crown. Adam Strausser pressed hard to get a win for his longtime crew chief and relative Charlie McCann, a K-C Hall of Famer who fell victim to cancer last week. Strausser claimed the dash in high-flying fashion, but at the drop of the green in the feature Smith blasted off and toured the outer limits of the ozone layer in a flawless green-to-checkered run. Second generation driver Kody Kinser (offspring to Kelly) fell into second, while Jimmy Nier worked his way through the field for a fight with Strausser. Josh Davis was on the move, but his driver from 10th to 5th stalled in the laps of Strausser, Nier, and an oncoming Cole Duncan. Strausser was able to take a closer look into second as Nier settled into fourth. Four laps later Nier pressed hard on the low side of Strausser with some help from lapped traffic. With Smith well out in front, Nier took over third on lap 23 and Duncan took over 5th from Davis, then added Strausser to the victim list in a great run through the pack. Nick Naber and Jimmy Stinson came on strong at the finish, while Keith Baxter put the Charlie Brown #99 in a top ten run. Newcomer from the North, Kevin Lee, who had a strong second place to Naber in the heat, had a strong run into the money. Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Kinser, Nier, Duncan, Strausser, Davis, Stinson, Naber, Keith Baxter, and Kevin Lee. Davis was the hard-charger of the race. The "Buzzard" Doug Adkins flew into town for his second K-C AMRA Advanced Services modified win of the year and let no shettlings for the rest of the field. Adkins, one of the premier modified drivers of the region, has four top-five's at K-C and is now the points leader in claiming the Buckeye 100 win. Adkins cause was not easy. Jason Montgomery squeezed every ounce of horsepower from his #X mount, giving early challenges to Adkins. Kenny Johnson then came onto the scene as the former AMRA champ made it a torrid three way battle. Montgomery and Johnson's fight for second gave Adkins a little breathing room as Johnson finally nailed down the runner up slot. Moving up through the pack, Doug Betts came from 21st to 10th and Fireball Pinkerton came from 16th to 9th in wall scraping, nail-biting exciting runs. Explosive back-in-the-pack action emerged from Adam Colley, Adam Jordan, Tim Tribby, Brian Whiteman, and Robin Duston--all top point men-- who dueled for position much of the night. When all was said and done, Adkins said, "We're just having fun right now!" The statement didn't do justice to the fun and thrills the veteran gave to the crowd as he racked up a win ahead of top-tenners Johnson, Montgomery, Adam Colley, Adam Jordan, Tim Tribby, Brian Whiteman, Robin Duston, Dave Fireball Pinkerton, and Doug Betts. Joe Buskirk and Brandon Thompson are close--really close to feature wins. But for the time being, the master of the Dan Reno Hobby Stock division and car-builder extraordinaire Jamie Adams is the 'King of the Hill' and the Buckeye Champion. Buskirk and Thompson went two-wide looking for some way to get around the veteran Adams. Thompson went low, Buskirk high and at some points locked to Adams back bumper. Adams knew where to be and carried the momentum to his fourth K-C win of the year. Rounding out the top ten were Adams, Buskirk, Thompson, Brandon Mather, Joe Williams, Bruce Gray, Jr., Jim Hildebrand, Mike Brust, Justin Poling, and Jayme Dailey. Next week will be the a regular night of racing with four divisions, featuring the 410 outlaw sprints with Late Models, Modifieds, and Hobby Stocks and a kids special fun night with Pepsi Bike Racing.
