Rain Takes Five Features at Black Rock, Kreg Crooker Takes Bandits Win
By RICH VLECK
As Kreg Crooker was in Victory Lane, celebrating his first career win at the Black Rock Speedway, a light rain began to fall. That rain lasted another hour and finally forced the cancellation of what had all the intentions to be a promising night.
110 entries were made at the time of the postponement, which took place around 9:00 p.m. Among the totals were 27 4-cylinders and 26 358-modifieds. Unfortunately, the only action they would see on Friday night would be a hot lap session on what remains an extremely fast yet smooth Black Rock Speedway.
The only racing action that did get in saw Kreg Crooker get around Cody Moorehouse with two laps left to go in the amateur Black Rock Bandits division. After a spin by David Ahouse on the final lap, Crooker had to survive one final run by Moorehouse to put his No. 5x in Victory Lane. Crooker nearly spun out off of turn 4 but kept it straight to bring it back to the line. Moorehouse was not as fortunate, as he did spin, relegating him back to fourth.
Fans and racers alike will have their tickets from Friday honored next week, May 4, when the BRP Can-Am 360 Late Models kick off their highly anticipated season. Tickets will be sold at $12 for this jam-packed show, but those that sat through the rain delay this past week will be admitted for free with a valid ticket/ wrist band from Friday Night.
T&R Towing, as well as Pepsi, will present this full card of racing, along with the first 1 on 1 spectator races of the year. Spectators interested in racing must have a valid driverís license and registered vehicle to be permitted to race in this event.
