Durr, Dennis take wins at Miami County Speedway

Russiaville mini-sprint racer Krissy Durr and veteran Ron Dennis each found Victory Lane to highlight the racing action last weekend at the Miami County Speedway.

Durr, whose father, Ron, is a former racer, picked up the win in the Restrictor Class with Deaven Bolton coming home second and Seth Ireland third. Dalton Walker and Devan Myers rounded out the top five. Heat race wins went to Thaddeus Black and Ireland.

Dennis, a former Hobby Stock, Modified and Sprint Car driver, took his heat race win and then followed it up with the feature win a bit later in the evening in the Senior Class. Following him across the finish line was Joe Leek while 1989 USAC National Midget champion Russ Gamester was third. Clarence Hoch was fourth and Joe Taylor fifth. Leek won the other heat race for the class.

The always tough Non-Wing Class feature was claimed by Jordan Lambert with Brandon Rose taking second and Barbie Kimmel third. Sam Kimmel and Gamester were fourth and fifth, respectively.

Dennis was sixth, Laine Hite seventh, Jake Moore eighth, Jessee Holt ninth and Aaron Davis 10th.

Heat wins were taken by Sam Kimmel, Lambert, Hite and Rose. Moore won the B-main.

In the Wing Class Josh Ross took the win over second place Mark Monroe and third place Brian Busz. Craig Ronk was fourth and Barbie Kimmel fifth.

Connor Lane was victorious in the Junior Class feature, topping Kaden Blount, Ally Toney, Kayden Shaughnecy and Hayden Tanner. Toney and Lane snared heat race wins.

The track will host its final points race of the season Saturday night.

VINTAGE CARS

Numerous Vintage race cars will be exhibit today at the Kokomo Speedway as part of the prelude to the Howard County Automotive Heritage Hall of Fame.

The old cars will be at the track during the Award Recepients/Families HOF Board Brunch at the new Turn 5 Pub at the track. From 1:30-4:30 p.m., the Midwest Oldtimers Vintage Race Car Club will be showcased on the track.

Later today, the late Bill Lipkey will be elected into the HCAH Hall of Fame with former Kokomo Speedway track owner Kent Evans to speak and induct Lipkey for his achievements over the years. In addition, the O’Connor family will be receiving the Inspiration award for their contributions in helping the track to grow to national prominence.
