Information and Results from Racing at Hiester's H.O. Raceway

Tonight Thursday October 12th was the 2017-2018 season opener for the Modifieds at Hiester's H.O. Raceway.  We had 16 racers on hand for the event sponsored by Nestle Water.  Taking the win was Peyton Kochel sweeping his way to victory in the opener.  Peyton won all 6 segments on the night in his first race since last November.  Second went to Shane Hiester.  Shane won 3 segments on the night.  Third went to Dakota Barlet.  Dakota won 2 segments on the night and looks like he could be a contender all season long in the points battle.  Fourth went to Joe Pieja.  Joe won 4 segments on the night pushing his "Stupid Car" and trigger finger to the limit all night long.  Rounding out the Top 5 in fifth was track owner Tom Hiester.  Tom didn't win a segment, but was on the lead lap in every race.  The rest of the Top 10 were: 6-Sheldon Hiester (2 wins), 7-Mike Feltenberger (1 win), 8-Dennis Barlet (1 win), 9-Ed Kenderdine, and 10-Kevin Sponagle (1 win).  Denise Barlet just missed the top 10 by a lap getting a 19 in the 1 segment running for the lead almost the whole race.  Laudan Seigfried made his first ever start at Hiester's H.O. Raceway finishing 13th, and finishing on the lead lap on Lane 8.  Randy Heilman made his first start in over a year finishing 14th with a lead lap run.  Stacey Schmick had one good race finishing on the lead lap otherwise struggling in the opener.  Devin Gundrum and Levi Gundrum were back again with Devin coming home 12th with 2 lead lap runs, and Levi was 16th with a total of 99 laps which is a great improvement over last season.  2nd throuh 5th were separated by 1 lap and 7 segments.  The top 5 were separated by less than 2 laps.  Defending point champion Sheldon Hiester struggled finding speed all night.  Dennis Barlet had a good run going, but had handling issues on Lane 3.  Bear won a segment, but struggled to find speed and had controller issues.  Kevin Sponagle dusted off the old Brightbill Coach and brought it home to a top 10 finish with a segment win.  Thanks to everyone who came out tonight and our sponsor for the night.  Thanks to Savannah Miller for helping with the book.  We are back next week with the Sprint opener.
