Weekend ULMA Results


Last week, Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Missouri hosted the Lucas Cattle Company action where Chris Smyser kept his winning streak going after claiming his fourth consecutive win.  Bobby Penney of Lawson, Missouri broke through the ULMA win column after driving to his first-ever ULMA win at Double X Speedway in California, Missouri.

Competition first took place over the weekend at Randolph County Raceway (RCR), where nine competitors competed in two preliminary heat races and the main event.  Chris Smyser, who started fourth, worked his way to the front in the first heat race to top Tommy Cordray.  The Brothers Melloway ran one-two in the second heat race.

Smyser, of Lancaster, Missouri, was looking for his fourth overall ULMA victory this season when he led the field in the pole position.  Starting second, Jon Melloway, along with Holtkamp and Cordray, worked the entire event trying to figure out a way to get around Smyser.

It was clear that nothing was going to prevent Smyser from snagging his fourth RCR win in a row on this night.  Jon Melloway was second in front of Cody Holtkamp.  Tommy Cordray ended his rare visit to RCR with a fourth-place spot followed by Darren Turner, Daryl Dooling, Monty Umfleet, David Melloway, and Larry Winn.

Earlier this week, RCR announced that they are taking this week off and will not be racing as originally planned.  The track will resume their races the following Saturday, July 25.  Visit RCR online for all the latest track news and schedule of remaining events at www.randolphcountyraceway.com.

On Sunday, drivers competed at the beloved Double X Speedway.  The following information was obtained via the Race Report from Double X Speedway, courtesy of Dean Reichel.  The featured class for this event was the ULMA Late Models.

Eight drivers checked in for the evening’s event and all of them were great competitors.  Heat race winners Justin Russell and Dustin Hodges led the field to the first green flag, but the caution flag was thrown before a lap was completed.  With the field reset, Hodges jumped out  to the early lead and set a fast pace around the track.  However, Bobby Penney began gaining speed on the leader.

Penney’s prior visits to this particular speedway had not been pleasant so far, but that all changed Sunday night as he took the lead from Hodges on lap six and led the field for the remaining 14 laps.  Following Penney and Hodges under the checkered flag were Gage Wineland, Justin Russell, Cody Holtkamp, Todd McCoin, Chris Cox, and Andrew Arfinson.

Jon Melloway still leads the championship standings and looks to be the first driver this year to hit the 15 events marker.  Todd McCoin and Chris Cox have a solid battle going for the runner-up position with Cody Holtkamp and Dustin Hodges benefiting from recent strong performances to hold down the fourth and fifth positions.
