(08-14-2013 Dacono, CO) A massive group on motorcyclists took part in the Ride 911 memorial ride that started and ended at Colorado National Speedway kicking off a big night of racing at the track. Chad Cowan surprised the Late Model field and swept the night’s events winning both the FAST DASH and the feature event.

Rain cancelled qualifying on Ride 911 Night and also threatened to make a soggy memorial ceremony but just as the Ride 911 bikes began to lineup in the infield the rain stopped and a  gorgeous rainbow appeared (Starr photo)

Gillett Vet Super Late Models
The second rain storm of the evening forced CNS officials to end the night early before the Super Late Models could run their feature event. #12 Bruce Yacky continued his dominance winning the FAST DASH while #84 Matt Zwingelberg brought home the win in the DASH.

Pair A Dice Interior Finishes
LM-Cowan#41 Dale Reeder led the first portion of the Pair A Dice Interior Finishes Late Model Main event but it was FAST DASH winner #76 Chad Cowan from Gering Nebraska who was pressuring for the lead. In third place running fast was former Figure 8 ace Joe Martinez in the #24 car. A After 10 laps Cowan was able to get by Reeder for the lead and #98 Lee Kemmit had worked his was around Martinez and Reeder for 2nd place. Cowan had a 10 car length lead on Kemmit so the only question was would Kemmit have enough time to reel in Cowan before the checkered flag flew. Yet on this night Cowan was smooth, fast, and navigated lapped traffic brilliantly, never allowing Kemmit to make up much ground. When the race ended Cowan’s black and green #76 late model landed squarely in winner’s circle while Kemmit had to settle for 2nd place. Another Gering Nebraska resident Paul Deines in the #17 car took home 3rd spot and early race leader Dale Reeder came home a respectable 4th position. Rounding out the top 5 was #8 Jeff Walbaum in impressive fashion as Jeff had mechanical failure in his dash forcing him start well back in the field. Desines holds a very slim 3 point lead over Kemmit in the season standings.

Race Central Media Legend Cars
It was a tough night for the Race Central Media Legend cars when just after the start of the feature event there was a big crash in turn 3. #37 Josh Richard got into the back of #85 Cole MacEwen sending Cole into the turn 3 wall. Wheels and parts littered the track and in the melee#46 Zach Witherwax (who had won his DASH) was also collected in the crash and suffered race ending damage. During the cleanup it was discovered that one of the cars had put down 3 distinct lines of oil all the way around the speedway. Needless to say there was a lengthy delay and ultimately the race went well over it’s time allotment. A green, white, checker, was in order and #22 Chris Eggleston held off a charging #15 Danny Medina and #66 Kyle Clegg to take the win.

CARC Mod Coupes
Cris Muhler in the #95 Oskar Blues Brewery MOPAR powered Mod Coupe was the class of the field and won the feature event by a large margin over #34 Randy Whitman. It didn’t appear as if it would be an easy win for Muhler early on as #3 Kyle Ray was all over the back of Muhler and seemed to be the fastest car on the track.  Yet as the two leaders entered turn 1 Ray got lose and spun into the wall also collecting #90 Frank Denning and #33 of Scott Rhoades. With Ray out of the race Muhler went unchallenged to the finish line.
