May Motorsports - Week 4

Hello May Motorsports Sponsors,

Lots of “red” with this weekend’s racing recap.  All in all pretty good weekend … topline summary:

Qualifying:  3rd was #7 Charlie Schultz @ 7th was #77 Matt Marlowe
Heats:  Both cars were in the same heat with Matt finishing in 1st and Charlie in 3rd
30 Lap Feature:  #77 @ 2nd and #7 @ 4th

Matt was a rocket at the drop of the green and had a straightaway lead for the first 25 laps.  Unfortunately his car began to get loose and the competitors began moving in and lessening the lead.  Matt needed a 25 lap race and Charlie needed it to be a 35 lap feature as his car kept getting better and better.

For their 29th visit to Lorain County Speedway the drivers and teams of the Midwest Supermodified Association certainly did not hold back. In qualifying the previous track record set in 2010 by D. J. Schullick at 12.124 by was broken first by Trent Stephens with a lap at 12.101. Then D. J. Schullick driving his new 94 numbered ride for the 2013 season came out and regained his record with a fervid lap of 11.932 seconds which translates into 113.1 mph average around the 3/8 mile track , becoming the first in track history to break into the elusive 11 second bracket. The record continued his family tradition of knowing the fast way around LCS as his father Dave Schullick was the first to break into the 12 second bracket at the track. The top five in qualifying were in order D. J. Schullick , Trent Stephens , Charlie Schultz, Mike McVetta, and Kyle Edwards.

In the first heat race the large crowd was wowed by the front row of the 36 of John Henes on the inside and 77 of Matt Marlowe on the outside who each other raced side by side for the first three circuits. Marlowe would gain the advantage coming out of 4 on the third lap and take off from the field to earn the heat race win, he would be followed to the line by the 94 of D. J. Schullick and the 36 of Henes.

In heat race two, it was the Trent Stephens show, storming to the top spot by lap two and setting sail, at the line the 11 of Kyle Edwards would come home second and 22 of Mike McVetta third.

The feature was a fast pace affair that went green to checkers uninterrupted, the move of the evening came as the 77 of Matt Marlowe surprised the front row of John Henes and the 49 of Jack Smith, by diving beneath the duel coming to the green and making a three wide pass going into one to take the point. From there the race would settle in with Marlowe trying to run away up front and the 19 of Trent Stephens and 94 of D. J. Schullick trying to claw their ways forward from fifth and sixth starting positions respectfully. It was Stephens who would finally run down Marlowe on lap 25 and execute a masterful pass as Marlowe would slip up trying to pass a lap car coming out of four on lap 27. Stephens would be unchallenged for the final 3 laps and would come home victorious, Matt Marlowe would hang on for second despite being hounded by the 94 of D. J. Schullick for the final 3 circuits. Schullick would claim third, the 7 of Charlie Schultz fourth and the 36 of Henes rounding out the top 5.

A nod should be given to the staff of Lorain for running the events quickly and efficiently last night, with racing action being over before 10:45.

Next up for May Motorsports will be Toledo Speedway this Friday 6/14/13.

Everyone have a good week.
