Mark Wauge of Jacksonville put on an exciting display of action at the Cottage Grove Speedway for the opening night of the Cottage Grove Speedway Modified Nationals on Friday August 2nd. The race would be a non-point contest, dubbed the Race Of Champions; featuring main event winner’s and track champions from across the Pacific Northwest.

Originally starting from the inside pole Wauge would take full advantage of the position in his Skinner Autoplex/Meineke Car Care Center/Hoppes Construction #1M Loose Gruff. Wauge would set a rapid pace on the high side to develop a sizeable lead but each time he would have plenty of breathing room a caution would occur bunching the field right up.

Several times Aaron Sheelar of Springfield would submit a bid to challenge on the bottom of the race track for the lead but time and again he would be denied by Wauge. That was until lap seventeen when the Producto Saw Systems/C&K Fabricating/West End Performance #45S Kazzbuilt, of Sheelar, would seize the lead. Sheelar would pace the field for several laps until lap twenty-six when lapped traffic came into play. Sheelar would lose the lead to Wauge and Wauge would go on to win it.

Aaron Sheelar finished a respectable second place followed by the SKS Racing/X-Factor Race Cars/Valley Rose Construction #24 X-Factor of Cottage Grove’s Curtis Towns who fought hard to finish third. Don Muth Jr. from Cottage Grove would place his Serendipity Spa & Salon/West End Performance #23 Shaw in fourth while Mark Carrell would earn fifth on the last lap in his Mark’s Auto Body/Gray’s Automotive #27 GRT by Phillips mount.

Fast time of the night was the T&K Services/Affordable Self Storage/Southside Tattoo #57M GRT by Yeager of Troy McElroy from Shady Cove at 14.097. Heat race winners were the Eastside Rollforming Specialties/raceprint.com/BBQ Oil Barbeque Sauce #10 Shaw of Gus Cooper from Creswell, Don Muth Jr., Mark Wauge, and White City’s Brian Poppa in his #65 mount.

In the Hornets James Deatherage of Cottage Grove would win his second race of the season. Even though it was his second triumph of 2013 it would be his first point event win after he captured a non-point victory earlier in the campaign in his D&D Automotive/Harris Machine and Design/A-1 Auto Supply #7D. Deatherage would make a move on lap five to gain the lead and hold it the rest of the way. He would be put under considerable pressure from Joe Maricle’s Ram Jack Foundation Repair #11. Deatherage would hold out despite winning the race by a whisker at the line.

Joe Maricle, of Veneta, was a very close second while third went to the West End Performance/West End Auction #116 of Jake Williams also from Veneta. Melvin Walker from Goshen was fourth in the Froggy’s Towing/Big B Tire/Springfield Auto Recyclers #00 followed by Marcola’s Dan Jenkinson in his Dan’s Automotive #4.

Fast time in the Hornets was Veneta’s Josh Corley in the #7C at 17.441 seconds. Heat race winners were James Deatherage and Taunton Swaim from Dexter in the Big Dog Recycling/A-1 Auto Supply #17 while winning the trophy dash was Joe Maricle.

Night two of the Cottage Grove Speedway Modified Nationals will occur on Saturday August 3rd. The IMCA Modifieds will be joined by the Hornets and Street Stocks. For more information log on to www.cottagegrovespeedway.com or call (360)-699-RACE.
