WHEELERSBURG, OH-It was another great night of racing at the Southern Ohio Speedway on Friday, May 25th for the “Memorial Day Championships.” A total of 64 race cars and a good crowd was in attendance.

Carrier and Conley raced hard for the opening two laps with Carrier leading and Conley pulling off the track on the races first caution.

After several laps of racing side by side for the second position Boggs made the pass on Kenny Howell to move into the second position on lap nine.
Boggs then set his sights on Carrier and received a much needed caution on lap 17, putting Boggs right on the rear bumper of Carrier. On the restart, Boggs put his car up top and got a big run on Carrier as they battled side by side for the lead! The two battled side by side for the next three laps with Boggs able to clear Carrier and pull away out front. The race wasn’t over with yet, however, as a caution flag flew on lap 22 to setup a 3 lap shootout. Carrier put his #28 machine up top on the restart, but wouldn’t have enough to pass Boggs as Jackie Boggs came across the checkers to claim his second feature win in a row! Carrier finished second with Kenny Howell third, R. J. Conley fourth, and Jeff Arnold fifth. Carrier won the dash race while Paul Davis, and R. J. Conley won heat races.
Todd Robinson led the field to start the nights Jordan Heating & Cooling UMP Modified A-Main.

Jamison finished second with Eric Hatfield third, Scott Lemaster fourth, and Jake Keaton fifth. Robinson won the dash race while Adam Colley won the heat race.
