Black Hills Mini Sprints--May 7th, 2016
"The Season opener for the Hoosier Tire Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour began in Newcastle, Wyoming and it was a day that started under the threat of rain . But the skies broke and the sun came out and made for an exciting start to a long awaited 2016 season. Ed Wagoner ( #51) a Newcastle driver set the pace from the very start winning his heat race convincingly and setting himself up to start on the pole for the A feature . Wagoner (#51) set the pace early in the A feature leading all 20 laps and winning the opener . The night was not without challenges as many drivers struggled to find a good setup, and accidents left many drivers out of the feature early . When the dust settled Wagoner(#51) lead the tour across the finish line, followed closely by Brandon Mills (#22) , Logan Hershey (#20), Don Taylor (#31), and last years points champion John Garrigan Jr (#95J) round out the top five . "

Cal Lightning Sprints
Pat Kelley would win his first ever Cal Lightning Sprint feature event as he would lead every single lap at the Ventura Raceway in Ventura, CA on May 14, 2016.
Pat would get a great jump on the start and would have a three car length lead by the end of the first lap while Jon Robertson and Darren Hillberg fought side by side for second.
As Kelley was cruising out front and Hillberg was comfortably in second, rookie Cody Nigh was busy trying to hold off Bruce Douglass for third. Douglass used a lapped car to set a pick and snatched the third spot from Nigh with five-laps to go.
Following Kelley would be Darren Hillberg in second and Bruce Douglass in third.
