Bear Ridge Speedway’s 19th event of 50th season of racing.

The Interstate Battery of Newmont & JTB Towing and Recovery sponsored 99 Rock Championship night for the CA Miller Late Models and the Weglarz Property Service Four Cylinders with double points on the line had fans on the edge of their seats as the points battle heighten to a fevered pitch.

It was a pair of tens in victory lane in the DIRTcar Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds, one claiming his second win of the night and one doing what he had to do to claim his first championship at the Ridge. With double points on the line, the racing was aggressive as everyone fought for that extra point. Surviving an early caution, driving away with no damage Derek Graham worked his way from the back to the front and with only a lap to go claimed the 3rd place victory lane spot, and the 2017 championship. While Graham was working his way to the front Ryan Christian starting from what he likes to call his sweet spot, about a third of the way thru the field, quickly worked his way to the front to take the lead and hold on to claim the win. Joining the pair of tens was the 73 of Kevin Chaffee with his best finish in 2017. Wayne Stearns the one who succumbed to Graham on the last lap crossed the line in fourth with Robert Tucker crossing in fifth.
