TWIN FALLS, Idaho — The Northwest Pro4 Alliance brought 27 cars to MVS for the Project Filter 100. 20 started the feature with two transferring in from the B-Main. Trouble started early after contact on the first lap. A restart proved much better and the race was led by 2010 race winner Bud Rumsey. Rumsey quickly began stretching his lead and after a few short laps he was already lapping cars. Meanwhile several cautions slowed the pace. Rumsey's car was near perfect on each restart and he was able to run away every time. After a late caution came out for Steve Thompson who was running in the top 5, fuel became an issue. The race was red flagged, bringing out the ever popular "Red Flag Special" in the MVS beer stands. As fans lined up for adult beverages, the cars stopped on the front stretch for fuel! The restart was once again a good one for Rumsey but more trouble finally allowed Defending Champion Ed Secord to start in second place. Secord had been making a run, finally managing to overtake Craig Forney who was sent back to a solid third place. The laps wound down and the top three remained the same as Rumsey stood once again in winners the winners circle with the top trophy. Secord tipped his hat to Rumsey and Forney was just happy to make the podium after making his first ever start at MVS.
Kris McKean was looking for his third win in a row in the Commercial Tire Super Stocks coming into the night with a slim points lead over Hanah Newhouse. Newhouse who had set fast time earlier in the day, found a fast outside groove and eventually passed Daniel Shirley for the lead racing hasrd out of turn two. A few laps later she had trouble in turn three underneath a lap car and spun out bringing out the caution. She was relegated to the rear and had to fight back to the front. A late caution allowed the pack to double up and on the restart Mckean who had taken the lead after Newhouse's spin, had a terrific start. Jumping out ahead, Casey Pehrson who started outside McKean tried to get into the low groove and made contact with Newhouse who had been behind McKean. That contact allowed McKean to race off for his third in a row main event win. The 3 time Defending Champion is certainly setting a blistering pace for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Championship.
The Brennan's Carpet Street Stocks point leader Paul Browne showed allot of savvy early on in the heat races. He kept his cool and raced well finishing second. This "cool" attitude remained in the main event as he made his way to the front of the pack and seemed ready for another win, which would be his third of the season. Ernie Hall meanwhile was closing in and after some trouble he caught up and started to contend for the lead. Browne was able to keep him at bay and did grab his third win, and stack up more points. Hall was second with last weeks winner Jason Todd running a nice third.
The Quales Electronics Junior Stingers, always a fan favorite, featured a dominating run by 13 year old Brendan Radabaugh that didn't quite see him all the way to the win. The reason? 11 year old Hailey Douglas. She caught him on the last lap and made contact with him in turn two. After a rubbing is racing move she exploded out of turn four for the win! Last weeks winner, Justice grabbed third place. Douglas remains the points leader.
