A superbly prepared race track and a talented bunch of wheelmen made for a show full of side-by-side racing and thrilling finishes Saturday as Spoon River Speedway hosted the 31st Annual Tom Knowles Memorial.
The annual event, which brings winged Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) 410 Sprint cars to the track, along with the wild wingless warriors of the POWRi Midget racing series, always brings displays of high speeds by the light open wheel machines. But along with the speeds this year was side-by-side dueling, as the ultra-smooth, multiple groove track allowed the drivers to go all out racing each other lap after lap.
The night begin with three brisk POWRi Midget heats, followed by four equally efficient MOWA Sprint heats, then heats for the UMP Modifieds and UMP Hornets that all kept the show moving. After a blazing 6-car MOWA Dash that saw the winner average 108 MPH for the duration of the six lapper, the MOWA B-main was competed and then the 13-car Hornet feature, won by Glasford’s Kenny Butterfield just ahead of Derrick DeFord.
Feature racing in the midget, sprint and Modified divisions were then on stage, and none of the three races disappointed, close finishes all.
