BLOOMINGTON, IN (June 18, 2005) -- It had been six weeks since the red clay saw meaningful competition. Our fans and competitors were more than ready to resume our season. And, at long last, the weatherman got out of the way. Everyone showed up in force; and the fans were treated to the kind of show that they have grown to expect from Bloomington Speedway.


Friday nights are generally filled with excitement for sprint car fans at Bloomington Speedway; however, last night was literally overflowing. First, four time Bloomington Speedway sprint car champion Derek Scheffel was back in the cockpit for the first time this season. It seems that Brad and Steve Fox found themselves with a little extra time on their hands while they weren't preparing USAC Silver Crown cars for Dave Darland and Jon Stanbrough. They decided that the Sheldon Kinser Memorial should not be run without a four time track champion who was willing and plenty able to compete; and, to rectify the situation, they built a sprint car for Derek to drive. Derek will apparently race the car when it fits into everyone's schedule. Derek got the venture off to a good start when he set quick time with the new car.

Jon Sciscoe, Kent Christian, Brady Short, Bobby Stines, and Ty Deckard made up the balance of the fastest six qualifiers for the invert. However, when Ty Deckard failed to transfer to the feature, Josh Cunningham who was the seventh fastest qualifier became the sixth fastest and inherited the coveted pole position for the feature. When the green flag dropped to start the feature, Josh charged into the lead; and it looked very much like he might score his first Bloomington Speedway feature win. Kevin Briscoe who had started ninth had been working his way toward the front; but it was starting to look like he would come up just a little short of catching Cunningham. However, as they came down to take the checkered flag, Briscoe nosed ahead of Josh by inches. Cunningham was forced to settle for second and wait until another day to score his first win.

Kent Christian ran second for the first twenty laps of the race before Briscoe got past him. Kenny Carmichael moved up from his eighth starting position to finish fourth. Brady Short finished a strong fifth. Mitch Cunningham, Steve Rone, Derek Scheffel, Tom Busch, and Dave Peperak made up the balance ot the top ten.

In preliminary action Bill Rose, Jason Knoke, Kent Christian, and Brady Short won the heat races while Bobby Stines took the "B" Feature.

Nineteen year old Broc Burton of Columbus is in his first season in a sprint car. He did about a season and a half in modifieds and super stocks before moving up to sprint cars. He turned in some pretty good performances at Lawrenceburg to get some seat time. Last night he turned in a good performance on the red clay as well. Broc's father, Gary Burton, is a modified veteran and has been able to help Broc get up to speed. However, both Gary and Broc are quick to give modified ace Kerry Norris for help in shortening their learning curve. Kerry's many years in a sprint car help him to understand the feedback that they get from Broc. He can then translate it to Gary. That way both Gary and Broc learn.

Broc's grandfather was in the stands watching; and he couldn't have been more proud. He advised that he had tried to purchase a midget from P.J. Jones for Gary to race; however, his wife and Gary's wife got wind of it and threw such a fit that he abandoned the plan.


Jesse Cramer got his 2005 season off to a great start by winning the first two O'Neal Wood Products/Monroe County Pizza Dept. modified features. This was great the first two shows; however, there was a down side to that too. Track rules mandate that a driver who has won to features in a row cannot start better than tenth. Although Jesse started fifth in his heat and won it, started second in the dash and won it, he would still start the feature in tenth spot.

When the modified feature got under way, Adam Sasser took the lead trailed by Ray Humphrey.and J.D. Roberts. On the 13th lap Roberts passed Humphrey to take the lead. However, three laps later, Humphrey got into the back of Roberts and spun him out. Roberts' car was unable to continue; and Humphrey was sent to the pit for rough driving.

Shelby Miles inherited the lead; and he drove his remaining ten laps to his first feature win of the season. Clint DeMoss came home second trailed by Cramer, Lee Hobbs, Gary Barrow, Adam Sasser, John DeMoss, J.P. Hume, Brian Lake, and Josh Eads.

In preliminary modified action, J.D. Roberts, Jesse Cramer, John DeMoss, and Clint DeMoss won the heat races while Cramer took the dash. Matt Bex and Adam Sasser prevailed in the dashes.


On his previous appearances on the red clay this season, Jeremy Hines of Seymour experienced mechanical failure one and finished third once. He unloaded last night ready for bigger things. He started second in his heat and won it. He finished third in the dash which would put him inside of the second row to start the feature. On the sixth lap, Jeremy took the lead; and he held it until the checkered flags waved.

Chris Hillman turned in a great performance charging from his 11th place starting position to finish second. However, the hard charger honors had to go to Gary Trammel who drove to a third place starting position after starting nineteenth. Chris Deweese, Ben DuBois, Danny Harris, Terry Arthur, Anthony Walker, Jason Sims, and Kent Robinson.

Greg Amick, Steve Sutliff, Ben DuBoins, and Jeremy Hines won the Tire & Wheel Center Super Stock heat races while Sutliff took the dash. Randy Howe took the "B" Feature.
