Big $4,000-To-Win Modified Feature Highlights Big Diamond Speedway Friday Night
Story By: BIG DIAMOND SPEEDWAY – MINERSVILLE, PA – This Friday night, May 12th will find the Quandel Concrete Modifieds racing a 30-lap feature with the winner receiving $4,000.
The modified action has been hot and heavy this season highlighted by the battle last Friday night between the young veteran Louden Reimert and his veteran counterpart Duane Howard. Reimert used some muscle to squeeze by Howard on the last lap to win the crowd-pleasing feature race.
That was just a small sample of the exciting racing this season at Big Diamond. Can Craig Von Dohren, Duane Howard, Mike Gular or Reimert capture their second win of the season or will Brett Kressley who has arguably been the fastest driver through four races get his first win of the season in Friday’s big money race.
With his win on Friday night, Reimert has taken over the points lead in the race for the Quandel Concrete Modified championship.
Last Friday night saw teenager Paulie Hartwig III win his first ever USS Achey Crate 602 Sportsman race after the previous Friday’s heartbreak. This Friday night the Crate 602 Sportsman will battle again as Hartwig III looks to make two in a row.
Last Friday’s runner-up Brandon Edgar is primed to get his first win of the season after being oh so close this year. Edgar’s consistency has put him atop the points race so far in 2023. The Big Creek Concrete Crate Rookies will also be back as this group of young future stars gets better and better each week.
Jax Yohn currently leads the way with two victories.
The Red White and Blue Autos Roadrunnrs are also on the card with their exciting brand of racing. Chuck Fayash returned to victory lane last week after many years and is the leader of the championship standings.
Capping off the night will be the $1,000 to win 100-lap Bone Stock Enduro sponsored by Murphy Fabrications. *Winner’s prize is contingent on a minimum of 40 cars registered.
