Wild Night of Action With USCS Sprints and More...

Hudson, NC (July 30, 2004) - "Once in a blue moon" has been an expression used to describe rare occurrences.  For everyone at Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday night the expression took on new meaning.  Most are glad what they saw only will happen once in a blue moon.  Friday night was the second full moon in the month.


The USCS Outlaw Sprint cars roared into town and put on a show fans will not soon forget.  It was not the action packed racing for lead, no holds barred racing that caught their eye, but the crash.  Jim Raptis, of Marietta, Ga. was able to make it to the checkered flag, but not before Joe Rebman, of Mansfield, Ohio, crashed into the first turn retaining wall and fence in a horrific crash that had everyone holding their breath as the young man emerged from his burning race car.  The race was red flagged for clean-up and repairs to the fence, but as the green flag flew for the remaining nine lap dash to the finish, Raptis held off Malabar, Fla. racer Kenny Adams, for the win.


In the Street Stock feature, Sugar Groves Gary Dietz also gave fans a scare as he tangled with Jonathon Smith and Gary Ledbetter coming out of turn four.  Dietz hit the outside wall hard in a head-on collision and was complaining of rib and shoulder pain.  He was removed from his car by Hudson Rescue and North Catawba Fire Dept. members and transported to Valdese General Hospital for treatment.  He was later released and returned to the track.


In Tuscon Late Model action Nick Waycaster pick up his first win after battling with Rock Harris for the lead.  Waycaster's luck at been up and down at the 4/10 miles oval but Friday night was his night to take home the trophy.  Right before the halfway point Harris and Waycaster got together and Harris was black flagged for damage to his racer.  While Harris pitted under caution, Jacky Workman moved up to second but was unable to catch Waycaster.  Tres Wilson posted a third place finish while Kevin Eby had a fourth place run in his first Late Model outing of the season.  Harris recovered to take home fifth.  Keven Wood, of the famous Wood Brothers stable, was able to claim sixth in his first Late Model stock event.  Steven Woody was seventh, Kenny Sigmon eighth, Ronnie Davidson ninth and John Reynolds, Jr. tenth.


In the Mini Stock 25 lap feature Randy Canipe was first to take the checkered flag with Dennis Trivet second, Scott Whittington third, Jason Cochran fourth and Rob Lewis fifth.


After the lap five crash in the Street Stock race that took out three of the front running cars, Marshall Sutton held the lead but on lap 12 Eby motored past Sutton for the lead.  Sutton would settle into second and Jesse LeFevers would be in third at the end.  David Smith was fourth and Jamey Mitchum fifth.


The Fast and the Furious race went to Worley Robbins, with Stephen Clippard second, Jon Ebeling third, Richard Watts fourth and Adam Hatton fifth.


TCMS will host Fan Appreciation night this Friday night with admission only $5.  There will be a V-8 Demolition Derby  Great American Sack race and regular racing in all other divisions.
