(08-10-2013 Dacono, CO) In one of the best races in recent memory in the Super Stock Division Kyle Patee made a daring move under 3 cars late in the race to win his first ever feature event. In the Super Late Models Chris Eggleston held off Roger Avants and Bruce Yackey on route to winner’s circle. Richie Castor Jr. was victorious in the Supermods and Justin Mackeachie took the win (and the season points lead) in the Figure 8s.

It’s been awhile since the #27 of Roger “the ice-man” Avants has been in winner’s circle in the Super Late Model division but on this night Roger was showing he still has gas in the tank as he jumped out to an early lead. Avants led the first portion of the race with #22 Chris Eggleston challenging him for the lead. Eventually Eggleton worked his way around Avants and secured the top spot. Behind Eggleston and Avants, #6 Dominic Urestta and #12 Bruce Yackey were making their presence felt in 3rd and 4th spots.
For nearly 40 laps Eggleston and Avants battled for the win thrilling the large crowd at CNS. With 3 laps to go Roger made his move to get his spot back and there was contact with Eggleston in the apex of turns 3 and 4. Eggleston spun causing a chain reaction sending the entire field spinning and crashing behind the leaders. Eggleston suffered no damage but Avant’s car was in bad shape and had to leave the track. #84 Matt Zwingleberg was also collected in the melee and had to retire with heavy damage.
On the restart Eggleston elected the outside lane with Bruce “the Moose” Yackey along side. When the green flag dropped Yackey appeared to have a shot at the lead but Chris could exit turn 2 as if shot out of a cannon and was able to maintain the position and go on to take the win, his second of the 2013 season. Yackey finished 2nd, a patient #66 Darren Bucklen was 3rd, #31 Rick Smith was 4th, and the final spot in the top five went to Arvada’s Dominic Ursetta. Yackey now has a commanding 45 point lead in the standings on second place Darren Bucklen.

ERA Super Modifieds A great field of ERA Supermodifieds showed up for their second appearance of the year at Colorado National Speedway. Nick Haygood, Chris Sheil, Johnny Pickard, and Larry LaPointe, showed up to give the dominate team of Harold Evans and Richie Castor Jr. a run for their money. At the start of the feature #33 Chris Sheil made short work of the cars in front of him and grabbed the lead. With #2 Richie Castor Jr., #3 Harold Evans, and #40 Nick Haygood battling slower cars to get to the front, Sheil amassed a half lap lead on second place. With just 6 laps to go #29 Craig Moore brought out the caution when he spun in turn 4 which would erase the massive lead that Sheil had on the field. On the restart Castor blew by Sheil to take the lead and he never looked back. Castor took home another trophy and Chris Sheil had to settle for second place. Harold Evans was 3rd, Haygood was 4th and #14 Joe Gallegos was 5th.

Art’s Septic Service Figure 8s Justin Mackeachie in the stars and stripes #50 Figure 8 started dead last in the feature event but quickly moved his way up through the field. Yet when Justin got the front he found #10 Frank Gastineau leading and not willing to relinquish the spot. Lap after lap Mackeachie tried low, then high, but could not get around Gastineau. With just a lap and a half to go Gastineau slowed just slightly as he approached a lapped car and that was just enough to allow the #50 to slip by and take the lead. Mackaeache took the win followed by Gastineau, #81 Dave Smith, #52 Jared Wall, and #23 Al Duran. With the win Mackeachie takes over the points lead from #26 Nick Martinez who suffered race ending damage in a altercation at the start of the race.
