    It’s always a joy to come to Auto City Speedway, but it’s especially nice when we get to honor a great driver and Hall of Famer like Jay Woolworth”¦And that’s exactly what happened on Saturday, September 8th, as Jay was honored with the 1st annual “Living Legends Dream” race with an Autograph session, fan photo on the track and a party in the turn two lounge after the races”¦

    Racing started with point leader Adam Rowe taking fast time for the Tiger Auto Salvage Street Stocks with a 15.30. Jay had a great night on the track, as he won the first heat race, while Rowe won the second. Jim Miller, Jr. took the lead to start the 50-lap feature. But Rowe flexed his muscles early, taking the lead on lap 7. Jimmy Severn came from all the way in the rear and challenged Rowe for the lead after the race’s only caution flag flew on lap 35. But Rowe held on to take the win. Miller, Julian Fluty and Woolworth rounded out the top 5.

    Dan Leeck had quick time for the Lafontaine Performance Center Super Stocks with a 15.67. Leeck won a heat race as did Lonnie Saumier, Jr. Rookie Kyle Crump jumped in front to start the 40-lap feature, but point leader Kyle Hayden pulled next to him on lap 2. The two Kyles ran side-by-side for the next 6 laps until Hayden the advantage.

The “Buzzsaw” stayed in front for his 9th feature win of the season. Duane Damon finished second followed by Lamson, Beach and Craig Bastien.

    It was Austin Pinnell’s night in the Virtual Hornets, as he started by setting a new track record with a 17.01.
