LMS Racing Roundup

By Michael Knight



Lancaster Motor Speedway hosts the second race of the NDRA Dirt Wars with $3,000 going to the winner.

Local favorite Timbo Mangum is the one to watch Saturday night at LMS.

Earlier this season, Mangum won the $2,000 NDRA Road Show race at LMS and will be looking to keep that streak alive by collecting the $3,000 to win NDRA Dirt Wars race Saturday.

Another local track favorite, “The Gambler,” Brandy Baker also had a good run in the NDRA Road Show race last month, finishing third.

Baker and Mangum will be seeking to defend their home turf.

Steve Banal is another favorite to watch Saturday night as Banal has numerous wins this year at LMS.

Ronnie Mosley will be returning to LMS this Saturday night after hitting the wall hard a couple of weeks ago. Mosley is always a factor when he is at LMS.

Other drivers eligible for the $3,000 to win NDRA Dirt Wars race are Ron “The Bull” Parker, Kent Peckham, Greg Barker, Chris Cheek, Pat Lindsey, Kenny Rominger, Matt Long, Gary Puckett, Cody Cook, Ryan Atkins, Matt Stover, Brett Hamm, Zack Mitchell, Matt Logan, Dennis “Rambo” Franklin, Steve Hendren, Jimmy Schiltz, Andy Hodges and Jay Sessoms.

Also on the card for Saturday night is the ever-exciting Crate Sportsman division with Travis Payne on a two-race win streak. The Super Street has the “The Gambler,” Brandy Baker on a two-race win streak. In the Pure Street, Pebo Johnson is on a three-race win streak.

Ben Helms is fresh off a win in the Vintage. The Young Guns V8 may run with the Crate Sportsman drivers, but there will be no points allowed to the Young Guns V8 drivers. There will be no Stock 4, or Young Guns V8 this Saturday night.

The pit gates open at 4 p.m., with the grandstands opening at 5. Admission is $25 for the pits and $15 for the stands.

If you missed any of the action from last Saturday night, or any this season, Jackie Sims will have DVDs for sale for $10 in the pits and stands.
