Clay Jones Wins Mosquito Authority 180 At Wake County Speedway

The finest stars and cars of the area roared into ” America’s Favorite Bullring ” last night and fans were treated to a full evening of up close in your face action.

Seven feature events, everything from Power Wheel action for the kids to Late Model cars were on tap with the first 50 youngsters receiving Hot Wheel cars from Peggy Fleming/ Turn Key Designs and candy from the “Candy Man” Chris Vestal, thank you both. The Power Wheel winner was ready, The Sanford Streak grabbing the win on his 1st visit to Wake County Speedway, Cy Simpkins ran 2nd with Caleb and Gwen Fleming crossing the stripe in 3rd.

The Capps Motorsports Modified 4  winner was Dennis “The Dominator ” Capps who held off Kevin Jefferys in the 1st feature followed by Mark Hood, Keith Oliver and Randy Ayers. In the night cap, Capps once again held off Jefferys, Ayers, Hood and Jason Marson. Capps thanked his team and teammates from Solid Rock Carriers/ Click It Or Ticket victory lane.

The Solid Rock Carriers 60 lap Late Model Feature winner was Goldsboro speedster Clay Jones who held off “Shotgun” Miller from Apex after Willow Spring driver Randy Renfrow had gremlins slow his bad fast hotrod around lap 52. Alex Fleming, Brandon Hobbs and Daniel Vuncannon rounded out the top 5 finishers. Jones thanked Solid Rock Carriers, his family and team from Capital City Chevy victory lane. The touring series East Coast Flathead Ford Association brought the show to town, these speedsters driving coupes and coaches from the late 1930’s and 1940’s put on a show for the fans with Wayne Lawson and Johnny Johnson crossing under the stripe in 1st and 2nd place when the checkered flag flew. Dennis Andrews, Richard Wikle and James Rogers ran under the waving flag in 3rd through 5th place.

The INEX Legends feature winner Billy Hall, continues to impress at the county after a bad wreck a couple of seasons ago he’s come back and he’s bad fast. Hall held off Zack Brown to grab the “W” follow by Jason Austin, Jason Beck and Tyler Hocutt. A big thank you to Jacob O’Neal and his daddy grabbing the win in the 5 lap Bando feature. I don’t know where the Bando’s are, Redhead Racing went north to Chicago and I think Cam Murray ran 2nd down Concord way but we need Bando stars and cars at the county. The Bomber division continues to grow with Bing Sheer grabbing the win out of fifteen cars!
