Walt Hammond Wins a Wild Sportsman Modified Main Event

Mekkelsen RV night at Bear Ridge Speedway proved to be an exciting and entertaining night with drivers taking wild rides in multiple divisions, lots of side by side action and the ever popular kids rides.

The Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds found a new face on top as Walt Hammond led all but the first lap of the wild main event to take the win. Richie Simmons and Robert Tucker spent most of the first half of the race stalking Hammond for the lead. A caution on lap 19 for Walt Hammond’s son, Walter J Hammond who ended up on his roof in turn one the changed the pace of the race. Just one lap after the green reappeared Richie Simmons got turned around while battling Ryan Christian for second with both drivers restarting from the rear. 10 laps and a couple of cautions later leader Walt Hammond and Adam Pierson tangled while battling for the lead with Pierson headed to the rear for the restart. Four laps later Richie Simmons got turned once again, this time on the backstretch and ended up on his side with four other cars involved. From there the race went green with Walt Hammond taking the win. Robert Tucker ran up front all night and finished second with Kevin Chaffee third. Adam Pierson came back to finish fourth with Terry Williams fifth.
