For Immediate Release:
Kinkade Nabs Huge Victory, Claims Night One of “Duel on Dirt” Weekend at Wayne Co. Speedway
(Middlebourne, WV) When the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour set their sights an a two day weekend deep in the heart of “Amish Country” you can bet their going to serve up a plethora of decadent treats for Buckeye State race fans of all ages. A track most popularly known for its intense sprint car action was headlined by a open wheel division of a a different kind Friday Night when the tour made its return visit to the dirt facility. Dubbed as one of the nations most talented rosters, the open wheel pilots converged on the lighting fast 3/8th mile facility in front of a massive Wayne County Speedway crowd.
Renegade of Dirt racing action got underway this evening as Zanesville, OH's Rick Aukland stormed out of the gate and laid claim the Two Brothers Motorsports Quick Time Award. In Heat race number one it was much of the same as the fourth starting “Badland's Bandit” terrorized the stellar qualifying heat race to grab the checkered. A stacked heat race number two rolled out on to the speedway and saw current Renegade of Dirt points leader Bobby Kitchen take the point and never look back holding off teammate Bart Hartman for the win. St. Clairsville, OH's DJ Cline took the green on heat race number three from his outside second row position and quickly maneuvered his mount to the lead and never looked back during the ten lap event. The Integra Shocks and Springs B-Main was next to take over the race track and saw Bruce Miller grab the early point. Miller would then continue to show the way through the twelve lap B-Main and was followed across the stripe by A-Main transfers Deana Groves and Scott Stiffler.
When the sun set on the well manicured dirt oval facility the sold out Wayne County Speedway crowd on hand witnessed a literal “Duel on Dirt.” Fans were treated to an entire entree of two and three wide racing action during the thirty lap Arizona Sports Shirts A-Main. Aukland grabbed the lead from his outside front row position but would relinquish his lead to DJ Cline on lap eight when his 2a entry lost the driveshaft entering turn number three. A persistent Kevin Morehouse found his way challenging Kinkade and Cline for the top dog position as the trio battled back and forth at the midway point. Zanesville, OH's Anthony Kinkade then took advantage of a slight push from the #4 of Cline to gain the front spot on the field. Furthermore, the talented field continued to do battle for positing from front to back throughout. However a flawless Kinkade would go on to park his royal blue #144 into the Renegades of Dirt Victory Lane for the first time. As an all smiles Anthony Kinkade climbed out of the car he went on to tell speedway announcers, “Wow, I didn't think we we're going to be that good but we will take it.” “I kept seeing Morehouse on the inside then on the outside and I gave it all I had and we held him off, nights like tonight make your really wish these cars had rear view mirrors” jokingly stated the local favorite. Following Kinkade across the line to round out your top five were Morehouse, Cline, Wilson, and J. Hartman.
