Walinder Wins URSS Calhan Chaos

If it wasn’t a full moon, it should have been. It should have been Friday the thirteenth as well. All but four sprint cars wish they could have a “do-over” from Saturdays racing program at El Paso County Speedway. Everyone but Mark Walinder, Scott Cochran, Mike Taylor, and Kevin Schramek were on the trailer before the end of the shortened feature.

The weather played hell for the speedway that night. The wind picked up, drying the track in one and two and keeping the bottom sloppy muddy in three and four during the heat races. The temperature dropped to the low fifties making the night a challenge to say the least.

Before the heat races Rookie of the year challenger Nic Sutton’s night ended with a broken rear end. “We are scratching tonight to not completely ruin the rear end “said Nic.

During the first heat race Chris Crowder got too high in turn one and hit the concrete wall, destroying his rear axle. “I just got too high up the track” he stated. The second heat race Clint Schubert’s night ended with fuel issues and the Hooters 27a of Mike Hathaway climbed the turn one wall launching him out of the facility. Mike was ok but the car was finished for the evening.

 Brian Hardman won the first heat and Cousin Coby Pearce won the second heat.

The feature rolled onto the track with outside pole sitter Mark Walinder surrounded by the “young guns” of the Colorado URSS division. “I knew if I could beat Dustin (pole sitter Dustin McNeill) into turn one I had a good chance to get this win” said Walinder. And that’s exactly what he did on the first start which was erased when cousins Hardman and Pearce got together ending both their nights early. Mark took the lead again but on lap four, Rookies Joey Schmidt and Dustin McNeill’s night ended on the tow truck hook. Once again, Mark led a field of drivers half his age to the green flag and held off a charging Scott Cochran to take the checkers. “I feel bad for all the guys that got tore up. I sure wish they would move those walls back about fifty feet. Guys would have a place to go when things happen in front of them.” Walinder stated in victory lane.

Scotty Cochran finished second stating “I had a shot toward the end to get under Mark, but after the last time we were here and we ran into each other running first and second, I thought to myself second is not that bad behind a driver like Mark” 

Third place Mike Taylor said “I tried running where those two (Walinder and Cochran) were faster than me and no way did I feel good up there - and I wasn’t going to spin out and loose third place”

Fourth place was Kevin Schramek, whose landscape business will be adding money to the purse the next to two races. Rounding out the top five was Luke Lucero, who ran short of fuel on the last lap. “That was frustrating” said Lucero

The Keizer Wheels hard charger award went to Kevin Schramek who advanced from his 9th starting spot to 4th.

Finishing order 1) Mark Walinder 2) Scott Cochran 3) Mike Taylor 4) Kevin Schramek 5) Luke Lucero (DNF) 6) Dustin McNeill (DNF) 7) Joey Schmidt (DNF) 8) Coby Pearce (DNF) 9) Brian Hardman (DNF)

 Clint Schubert, Mike Hathaway, Chris Crowder, and Nic Sutton all DNS

Next race for the Colorado URSS is Saturday, June 21, at the El Paso County Fairgrounds and K.W.Schramek Landscape Materials will add to the purse! See ya there!
