AMSOIL Speedway in Superior hosted a full night of racing Friday, with the Late Models, Modifieds, Super Stocks, Midwest Modifieds and Pure Stocks all competing.
Kyle Peterlin won the 20-lap Late Model feature. He took over the lead midway through the race and pulled away second-place finisher Darrell Nelson in the final laps.
Curt Myers raced in both the Modified and Super Stock features. He took the lead from the pole in the Modified race but faded when Steve Stuart moved to the front in the outside groove. Stuart extended his lead to nearly a straightaway with five laps to go remained in front for the win.
Myers found some redemption in the Super Stock feature. He went to the front early but then battled with Scott Lawrence for the lead. Myers finally got a nose to the inside of Lawrence in turn three and muscled his way to the lead off turn four with four laps to go. Myers held on for the win. The race went green flag to checkered flag with no cautions.
Skeeter Estey took the top spot in the Midwest Modified feature on the second caution flag of the race. He tangled with Tyler Luger at the front of the pack with six laps to go, which sent Luger and Estey to the lead for the restart. Estey took the win, with Cody Wolkowski taking second.
The night’s final race, the Pure Stocks feature, was marred by mishaps. Five caution flags flew in the first three laps, and two more popped up before the conclusion of the 15-lap race. Mike Blevins led most of the race to take the win.
