MARKLEYSBURG, PA (June 20, 2010) Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex held a special Sunday show in cooperation with two area tracks holding big events on Saturday. Taking their first wins of the season on Father's Day were Cody Hardesty (Brooks Automotive Group FASTRAK Late Models), Bob Gordon (Super Late Models) and John Redshaw (Bobby Lake Motorsports Street Stocks). Deana Groves (Melvin's Automatic Transmission Service Modifieds) and Kenny Burkholder (TC Race Car Parts Chargers) picked up their second wins of 2010.

The first six laps of the Brooks Automotive Group FASTRAK Late Models saw 3 yellows and a red flag. The last 14 laps went green to checker as Oakland, MD drivers Mike Lewis and Cody Hardesty battled side-by-side putting on a show for the fans. Hardesty dogged Lewis and made his move coming for the white flag to take the lead and steal the win from Lewis. Tyler Carpenter came home third ahead of Kyle Thomas (from the rear after pitting) and John Over. Six through tenth went to Bobby Cossell, Rick Strickler, Jim Bryce, Josh Gordon and KC Burdette. Heat wins went to Hardesty and Lewis.

A slim field of the Melvin's Automatic Transmission Service Modifieds were on hand for the Sunday show. Deana Groves gave her dad Dave a great present by picking up her second win this season. Vic Vandergrift took the initial lead being chased by Groves. Vandergrift broke on lap three and Groves cruised to the win. Bobby Bennett, Nick Cramer, Nathan Baker and Vandergrift completed the field. Vandergrift won the lone heat.

Bob Gordon started on the pole of the Super Late Model feature and that was all she wrote. Gordon took the lead after a couple of false starts and never let up as he drove away to a dominating win, his first since July 4, 2009. Billy Holbert was able to hold off Jeff Ferguson, Mel Minnick, Jr. and Devin Friese. Jeff Burdette, Matt Cosner, Doug Horton, Sam Stile and Paul Wilmoth, Jr. filled out the top ten. Gordon and Friese were heat winners.

September 3, 2005! That was the last time John Redshaw visited victory lane in the Bobby Lake Motorsports Street Stocks. Redshaw led from the start and even gave the lead up to Mike Duritsky on lap seven. A restart on the next lap saw Redshaw power back into the lead and race to his 21st career win at the track. Duritsky took second over Bob Nelson, Matt Rishel, Jim Bendishaw, Jr., Charlie McClain, Chris Lucy, Jim Byers, Barry Faris and Chris Henry. Heats were won by Duritsky and Redshaw.

The final feature event of the night was for the TC Race Car Parts Chargers. Kenny Burkholder found himself on the pole after the pill draw. Kenny took off at the start and led all 13 laps for the win, his second of the season. A caution on lap 11 saw the race go to 13 laps as all features end green, white and checker. Brad Jenkins had his hands full to finish second over Marty Spade, Jr. (from 15th), Bus Matthews, Justin Howell, Bennie Dennis, Jerry Walters, Jr., Kyle Burkholder, Bob Matthews and CJ Nicola. Bus Matthews and Kyle Burkholder grabbed the heat wins.

Next Saturday, June 26 finds the FASTRAK Northeast Region Tour invading Roaring Knob for the Brooks Automotive Group FASTRAK Late Models. The Melvin's Automatic Transmission Service Modifieds, Bobby Lake Motorsports Street Stocks and TC Race Car Parts Chargers will also be on the card.
