Nashville, TN (Friday, July 16, 2021) – With a Friday/Saturday doubleheader weekend at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, Local Racing was the headline for the Friday night show. All six of Nashville’s quarter-mile divisions took to the Speedway to entertain the crowd on hand.
The Dye Hard Hair Salon Bandoleros were the first feature of the night, with defending track champion, Aiden Potter collecting the first win of the night. Potter’s win came after a brief delay in the action due to a passing pop-up shower. The Pure Stocks rolled the speedway next for an exciting and dramatic 20 laps. Dylan Jones held off fellow Championship contender, John Bradley to grab the win.
The Pest Doctor Front Runners were next up, and another exciting race unfolded. At the white flag, Tony Gann led the way over Josh Harrell entering turn one, but Gann had trouble with the lapped traffic ahead of him. Gann made contact with a backmarker, allowing Harrell to pass him down the backstretch and go on to collect the win. Harrell’s accomplishment came after being sent to the back for an opening lap caution.
Street Stocks hosted a fairly uneventful feature – or so it seemed. Travis Ryman led flag to flag and crossed the finish line in front of the field, but was later disqualified in post race technical inspection. The disqualification allowed Micheal Pannell to pick up the win. A caution filled BH Holmes Construction Legends race followed the street stocks. After reaching the time limit for the race, the event was ended under caution with a multi-car pile-up in turn four. Going back to the last completed lap, Oliver Cordell was declared the winner.
Limited Late Models capped off the evening with a 30 lap feature event. Jeff Templeton led the field to the green and maintained the lead for several laps until Payton Hamlet found his time at the front. Templeton retook the lead retook the lead and seemed he may be the car to beat until Kevin Rollins and Allen Carter turned up the wick. Rollins and Carter leaned on one another through the final restart, but it would be Rollins who survived and came back to the checkered as Templeton and Carter got tangled up.
The next race at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway is the Rackley Roofing Masters of the Pros 150 and Camping World SRX event on Saturday, July 17th. For more information, log onto www.NashvilleFairgroundsSpeedway.Racing.
