Dehm Scores Topless 2O Win; Friedman, McKinney also Victorious on Fair Night

Jimmy Dehm won for the seventh time this season as the sportsman drivers battled for $450 in the Topless 20. Richard Craven was second, Dustin Mounce came in third, Scott Hatzer took fourth and Rick Thomas was fifth. Completing the top 10 were Troy Dodson, Paul Graf, Jeffrey Ledford, Ryan Huddleston and Matt Mills. Heat winners were Dehm, Bailey and Mounce. Dehm also won the Fast Five Dash after starting fifth. Ledford was the hard charger for moving up eight spots from his 16th starting position.

Daren Friedman closed the gap on points leader Scott Bull after winning the late model feature. Friedman overtook Joe Harlan for second place to put himself in position to make a run at Bull. Friedman was on the outside of the front row when he started the UMP Late Model feature. He was able to outlast the field and fend off all comers for his third victory of the season. Torin Mettille came in second and was followed by Bull, McKay Wenger and Eric Smith in the top five. Making up the second five were Dan Flessner, Steve Thorsten, Harlan and Jay Morris. Friedman and Wenger won heat races while Smith set the fast time at 12.94 seconds. Flessner moved up 10 spots from his starting position to earn hard-charger honors.

Mike McKinney scored his first modified feature win. Like Friedman in the late model, McKinney started in the front row and used that to his advantage. Steven Brooks came in second while current points leader Jeff Curl placed third. Jeb Friedman, who had the pole, and Jim Farris were also in the top five. Dave Porth led the second group. Following were Andrew Funk, Phil Line, Kevin Hastings and Joe Gillespie. McKinney, Friedman and Cory Schwengel were heat winners while Tommy Duncan took the semi-feature. Brooks was the hard-charger starting 14th and finishing second.
