The Hill Speedway - Results July 24th
« on: July 26, 2020, 07:04:08 PM »
 The lead on most race results is usually first time winners, outstanding performances, or someone setting some sort of record. The most important lead to this week's story, is a reminder that The Hill will be closed on this coming  Friday, July 31, and will reopen on August 7. Hoping all of our loyal fans and competitors have a great break, and we will see you next week!

Larry Colton returned to Victory Lane in the Rear Wheel Drive Four Cylinder division, Dalton Maynard topped the leader board in the Snell Metalfab Crate Sportsman,  and Doug Stack Jr. didn't let a twelfth place starting spot keep him from taking the win in the Street Stock class. Matt Browning continued his winning ways in the Rear Wheel Drive Four Cylinders, Mike Morse kept his season perfect in the Pure Stocks,  Keith Jack Lamphere doubled up in the IMCA Style Modifieds,  and Chad Homan added to his win total in the Crate Late Models.

Friday night he returned to Victory Lane in the Rear Wheel Drive Four Cylinder class, leading the twenty lap feature from green to checker. Randy Mathews Jr. and Brett Gleason stayed close for the opening laps, with A.J. Lane and Anton Smith making it a foursome for second place by the third circuit. Lane and Mathews swapped the runnerup position until Lane finally gained the upper hand on lap twelve.
