(07-03-2015 Dacono Colorado) On a gorgeous summer evening at CNS Adam Deines won the Snap-On Tools Pro Truck division during the Firehouse Subs “Got you Hooked” night. Brett Yackey came from deep in the field to win his first ever South Philly Cheesesteaks Late Model feature and Kyle Clegg made a daring late race pass to win in a massive field of Legend cars.
Snap-On Tools Pro Trucks
At the start of the 40 lap Snap-On Tools Pro Truck feature event #17 Scott Rhodes and #82 Michael Scott paced the field. The speedy Scott quickly grabbed a small lead but just a couple laps in he got loose coming out of turn 2 and hit the back straight wall erupting in a shower of sparks. Scott did a nice job keeping his truck from spinning and the rest of the field passed avoiding what could have been a disastrous situation. Scott limped his damaged truck into the pits and his hopes for the win were over.

Young AJ Warren in the #2 Truck has impressed this season and took control after the race resumed. Following Warren was #7 Adam Deines, #8 Jeff Walbaum and #34 Rudy Vanderwal. After a caution for debris on the track Deines got the jump on Warren on the double file restart but Warren looked determined and continued to challenge Deines for the lead.

When Deines began to pull away Vanderwal surged to challenge Warren for 2nd and #36 Matt Burton moved into the battle as well.
By the end of the feature Deines had built a 6 truck length lead on Warren and cruised to the big win. Warren finished an impressive 2nd with Vanderwal, Burton and Rhodes in 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

South Philly Cheese Steaks Late Models
In over a decade at CNS the name Yackey has been in winner’s circle and been etched on championship trophies countless times. Bruce Yackey is one of the most decorated drivers to ever compete at the 50 year old speedway. But a new generation is making a name for itself and on Firehouse Subs “Got You Hooked” night it was the coming out party for young Brett “the Maverick” Yackey the son of “the Moose”. While Brett has already won in Pure Stocks and Super Stocks he hadn’t yet tasted victory in the Late Model until tonight yet it would be a victory he would have to earn.

Yackey started the 40 lap feature all the way back in 8th position methodically working his way to the front having to pass some of the best drivers in the rocky mountain region. By the time Yackey had moved into 3rd his biggest challenge was in front of him #8 Jeff Walbaum and #7 Ethan Penrod who were running 1st and 2nd. Just past the halfway point Yackey went to the low side on Walbaum and took 2nd spot and then made the same move on Penrod who had led the entire race up until that point.
Once out front Yackey set sail and cruised to his first Late Model win of his young career. Penrod hung on for 2nd place with #42 Mark Neff and #98 Lee Kemmit in 3rd and 4th. Walbaum was the final car in the top five.

Legends An massive field of 31 Legend cars lineup for the feature event and #15 Danny Medina drew the lucky pill placing him on the pole along side #21 Ryan Jones. This race was a national qualifier for the legend cars so the pressure was on and the eager drivers came roaring to the green flag. Medina quickly took the lead leaving Jones to battle with #22 Chris Eggleston and #66 Kyle Clegg.

Disaster nearly struck for Medina when a lapped car spun directly in front of him and he and Eggleston made contact trying to avoid the hazard in turn 3. Medina’s car suffered some minor cosmetic damage but he would get his top spot back on the restart along with the other cars in the lead pack.
Medina built a large lead on the field but as he approached a group of slower traffic he had to back off coming down the front straight and Eggleston and Clegg quickly pulled up on his bumper.

In the closing moments of the race it was Clegg in 3rd place who made fearless moves to get by both Eggleston and Medina as the fans moved to the edges of their seats. Clegg looked determined in the final laps and blazed to his second feature win at CNS this season. Medina settled for 2nd with Eggleston in 3rd. #06 Scotty Scott took 4th and Ryan Jones was 5th.
