Bottoms, Lenz, Killingsworth Repeat At Siskiyou Motor Speedway


Yreka, CA...June 17...D.J. Bottoms won his second straight 20 lap IMCA Sport Modified Main Event Saturday night at Siskiyou Motor Speedway.  Bottoms is currently second in points, and he had more of a challenge after an early spin in the race.  However, the talented second generation racer worked his way back to the front for a well earned victory.  Point leader Justin Foux was a strong second.  Doug Franklin held off Ryder Boswell in a good race for third as Garrett Hamilton, Donovan Rodgers and Randy Wright completed the order of lead lap finishers.  Colton Cheffey and Randy Wright were eight lap heat race winners.  2015 champion Colter Boswell forced Cheffey to settle for second in the four lap Trophy Dash, and Cheffey's Main Event ended very early.

Point leader Scott Lenz won his second straight 20 lap Pro Stock Main Event at Yreka and fifth of the season.  Lenz had to start in back as the previous winner, but he wasted little time working his way to the front.  The race had a red flag when Ginny Flowers crashed into the front fence.  She wasn't injured.  Once Lenz gained the lead, he stretched it to a straightaway over Jeffrey Hudson.  Scott Flowers managed to stay on the lead lap in third.  Brian Hammond, Matt Harlow and Julia Flowers also took the checkered flag in order.  Lenz and S. Flowers won eight lap heat races, and Hudson's four lap Trophy Dash win prevented a Lenz sweep.

15 year old Ethan Killingsworth won his third straight 20 lap McDonald's Mini Stock Main Event and fourth of the year to keep the championship battle close.  Once Killingsworth grabbed the lead, he stretched it to about a half-lap in the rapidly run race.  He also won the eight lap heat race.  Reigning champion Marilyn Yawnick and Terry Kendrick battled all night.  Yawnick won a photo finish with Kendrick for the four lap Trophy Dash victory.  However, Kendrick held Yawnick off for second in the Main Event as Mike Whitaker and Mike Frost rounded out the lead lap finishers.

Next Friday night, the track will host the Wild West IMCA Modified Speedweek opener, and some of the best drivers on the west coast are anticipated.  The IMCA Sport Modifieds will also be there.  For further information, go to www.siskiyoumotorspeedway.com.
