Solberg, Smith Repeat At Douglas County Speedway
Roseburg, Oregon...May 12...Jeff Solberg scored his second straight victory in the 20 lap PRA Street Stock Main Event Saturday night at Douglas County Speedway. For second straight week, the reigning division champion had to battle Dale Roth for the win, but he managed to hold him off in a close finish. The rest of the competition had been lapped as Bill Stewart placed third ahead of Chris Lemon and Neil Pecor. The whole night, Roth and Solberg battled, but the only time Roth came out ahead was in qualifying with his fast lap of 16.583. Solberg was second quick at 16.806. They continued to have close races with Solberg coming out ahead in both the four lap Trophy Dash and eight lap heat race.
For the second straight week, Karl Smith dominated the Mini Stock Main Event in winning the 20 lapper by a lap ahead of Kiere Smith and reigning champion Chuck Jacobs. Dale Roth ended up fourth. Carl Smith set the fast lap of 17.264 and beat the 18.080 of Roth. Kiere Smith won a photo finish with Jacobs for the four lap Trophy Dash victory, and Carl Smith out dualed Roth to win the eight lap heat race.
Ron Johnson turned in a rather dominate performance in winning the 30 lap Hornet Main Event. Johnson took the checkered flag by over a half lap ahead of Bruce McMasters. McMasters was a solid second as Pete Lemon was the only other lead lap finisher. Cherish Wilson was a lap down in fourth as Ron Harvey, Scott Carroll, Tyler Organ, Tom Durant and Jeremy Mayfield rounded out the finishing order. McMasters set the fast time standard with a 20.250 lap, beating the 20.547 lap of Johnson. Wilson outran Bart Pulse to win the Trophy Dash, and the duo ran 1-2 in the first eight lap heat race. Johnson won the other heat race by a straightaway ahead of McMasters.
Rounding out the program was a Pro 4 20 lap Main Event, which was won by Rich McCoy in a close race with Dustin Knight. Jeff Proudy and Casey Osuna were both a lap down in third and fourth, respectively. Knight set the fast time of 15.273, beating the 15.707 of McCoy.
