Gas City Speedway results
Meseraull wins sprint feature
Defending track champion Thomas Meseraull (Waveland, Indiana) became the first repeat winner of the year in the non-wing sprint car division at Gas City I-69 Speedway Friday night, although his wire-to-wire victory in the 25-lap feature came in a different car to the win on July 10.
Meseraull started third in the 20-car race and took the lead by dipping under polesitter Tye Mihocko (Phoenix, Arizona) in Turn 4 coming down to complete the first lap. He was never seriously threatened despite six restarts that allowed his rivals to draw near.
Derek Losh (Renssalaer, Indiana) recorded his fifth 20-lap modified feature victory of the season at the Grant County quarter-mile dirt oval during the “Mid-Summer Showdown.”
Bill Bradley (Van Buren) surprised Andy Bishop (Gas City) by passing him to the outside in Turn 2 on the last lap to win the 15-lap street stock feature for his second win. Bishop has three feature victories at Gas City this season.
James Headley (Marion) posted his fifth victory in the six hornet features that have been run at Gas City so far in 2020.
Brock Meyer, lead pastor of Fairmount Friends Church, led all four laps of the “Faster Pastor” school bus race during intermission. Jared Webb, assistant pastor of Lakeview Wesleyan Church in Marion, finished second. Kevin Greenlee, senior minister of Unity Christian Church in Marion, was third and James McKinnie, the men’s program minister for the Grant County Rescue Mission, was fourth.
Racers have the opportunity to participate in a “test and tune” session on Wednesday before the Dale Korporal Candy Man Classic Friday night. Non-wing sprint car drivers will compete in twin 20-lap features for a total purse of $20,000 that night. Modifieds, street stocks and hornets will share the billing.
