Perfect weather and a great crowd showed up at Limaland Motorsports Park on Friday night and were treated to an awesome night of racing action at the quarter mile bullring. Cloverdale, Ohio’s Jared Horstman piloted the familiar orange Number 17 to his 4th victory in K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader action, while No. 34X Shane O’Connor picked up his first Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modified A Main win of 2019, and No 22T Tony Anderson picked up his 2nd Bud Thunderstock victory of the 2019 season.

The Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modfieds started the night with their 20 lap A Main. No. 11H Mike Hohlbein and No. 95J Jerry Bowersock would pace the fireld top the green flag with Bowersock grabbing the early point. No. 65 Todd Sherman battled his way to to second and set his sights on race leader Bowersock. The two would race wheel to wheel with only a lap 8 caution interrupting the battle. On the restart, O’Connor powered his way past Hohlbein and set his sight on the leaders. On lap 11, O’Connor would take the lead for good and win over Bowersock, Sherman, No. 22T Tony anderson and Hohlbein.

Next up were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders with their 25 lap A Main. No 12B Hud Horton and No 28H Hud Horton would bring the field to the green flag with Vandalia Ohio’s Stinson leading lap number 1 aboard the Don “Bounce” Ryder owned, Lee Greenwood sponsored entry. No. 49 Shawn Dancer found the high side of the track to his liking and powered to the lead on lap 2 and began to pull away as No 17 Jared Horstman fought his wayt to 2nd. Horstman began to close on Dancer on lap 9 when Dancer bounced off the backstretch wall exiting turn 2. Dancer would then loop out his number 49 car in turn 2 the next time around, bringing out the caution. Meanwhile, Ludlow Falls Ohio’s Luke Hall had fought his way up to 6th from the tail, and on the restart made a huge move to 4th on the the top of the track. Caution would slow the field one final time on lap 17, but it didn’t matter to Horstman, who would win his 4th Limaland feature of the year and his 5th NRA victory over No. 22 Randy Hannagan, Hall, Stinson, and No. 66 Chase Dunham.

Wrapping the evening’s action were the Bud Thunderstocks in their 15 lap A Main. No. J1 Jeff Matheny and No. 463 Daniel Sanchez would make up the front row, with Sanchez grabbing the early lead. Behind them, the action was hot and heavy with No. 22T Tony Anderson, No 57 Jeff Jessup, and No 7C Jordan Conover battling for 3rd, going 3 wide at times through the middle of the event. Caution would wave on lap 6 for No. 01 Leighton Clift spinning in turn 4, and on the restart, a pileup would ensue in turn 2 involving Matheny, No. 17 Jeremy Creech, No. 82 Chris Douglas, Jessup, No. 17H Devon Helmig, and No. 1W Mark Wooten. Anderson would show the nose of his No 22T to Sanchez as the leaders completed lap 7 and finally make the pass for the lead on lap 10. Anderson would continue to his 2nd victory of the season over Conover, Sanchez, No. J2 Rob Trent, and No. 89 Keith Shockency.
