Clear blue skies and 80 degree temperatures welcomed the Rocky Mountain Challenge Series (RMCS) to the Magic Valley Speedway (MVS). In their first of four appearances this year the field of RMCS cars proved once again why they remain among the most exciting touring divisions around. The crowd was more than impressed by the young FIFTEEN year old driver out of Upper Lake, Ca. Jeremy Doss. Starting shotgun on the field as a rookie he patiently made his way through the field passing veterans on the inside and outside on his way to the lead. Driving away to victory he became the youngest driver in RMCS history to win. A gracious nod of respect from Steve Jones who finished second as well as John Nesmith who rounded out the top three showed the respect that Doss has already earned.
After Hannah Newhouse's history making win last week in the NASCAR Home Track Feature Division Commercial Tire Super Stocks, as the youngest female (15 yrs.) to ever win a feature main event, fans were eager to see what would come next. She raced well into the the top three following Kris McKean who won his first main event of the season after battling for several laps with Daniel Shirley who was a close second place.
The popular Brennan's Carpet Street Stocks were back for their second race of the season with points leader Paul Browne looked to capitalize on his excellent start. Rookie Joshua Hunt led the first part of the race showing his fast learning around the 1/3rd mile oval. Browne eventually made his way to the front and extended his lead to the checkered flag for his second consecutive main event win. Ernie Hall raced hard and wrestled second place away from Mith Pehrson who rounded out the top three.
In the 10-14 year old Quales Electronics Junior Stinger class, the excitement is always elevated when they take the track. Fans have a warm appreciation for the field which boasts both boys and girls, who show off their ever improving driving skills. Second generation racer Brendan Radabaugh, coming off his victory in the season opener last week ran into trouble with Justice Coates and brought his Junior Stinger home in third behind Coates. Hailey Douglas won her first ever Stinger Main convincingly and was quick to thank all the great support she has from her family.
