1F T=, Er= - August 112012 Page 17 OOOOOOOOOOOO SPORTS Speedway standing;get some churning from new winners By Ben Deatherage Willamette Speedway Writer Willamette Speedway wit- nessed five new winners to victory lane Saturday, July 28 as the Leba- non venue hosted the Northwest Wingless Tour for its first 2012 visit alongside the Mini Trucks, Classic Sportsman, and Sportsman classifications, which were also in action. Eugene's Kyle Miller earned his first career victory at Wil- lamette Speedway as he dominated the field in the 30-lap Northwest Wingless Tour feature. It was Miller's first win with the series in 2012, in which he is a former champion with the group, earning the title back in 2009. Miller notched a clean sweep by earning fast time of the night as well as winning the trophy dash and heat race. Ridgefield, Wash. pilot Pat Canfield finished in second place followed by fellow Washington driver Mike Romig of Vancouver. The top five would be completed with Kyle Mehner of Clackamas finishing in fourth and Jeffrey Riv- ers crossing the stripe in fifth. Fast time of the night was Kyle Miller at 15.849 seconds while the win- ners of the heat races were Miller and Rivers while Miller also was the victor in the trophy dash. Albany driver Brian Smith became the newest winner in the Sportsman division, driving for Danny Altom who gave Smith the call to chauffer his vehicle for the night. Smith's win marked the fourth time that the car has visited victory lane, three times with AI- tom, and Smith became the fifth different winner in the division. Smith took over the lead on lap l 1 and would not give the lead up despite pressure from Justin Ditt- man in the closing ten laias. Dittman, of Tangent, finished in second place and Brian Winkler of Newberg was third. The balance of the top five consisted of Portland driver Brian Brown in fourth and Lebanon's Glen Hackney in fifth. Fast time of the night went to Brian Smith, at 17.595 seconds, as well as the tro- phy dash win, while heat race vic- tors were Jeff Rasch of Lebanon, Winkler, and Brown. A 15-lap consolation event was run with the top two trans- ferring to the feature, which was Casey Rhoades of Lebanon and Albany's Austin Gorham finishing first and second. DirtCar Super Late Model regular Kevin Roberts hopped into his Classic Sportsman to win the 40-lap feature for his first win of the year. The Gresham driver seized the lead on the thirteenth lap to stay out in front and become the fifth different winner in the division in 2012. Sean Cfonk of Portland was- second, followed by Lebanon's J.J. Irvine in third. Crossing the line in fourth place was Erik Jam- port of Monmouth and the top five were completed with Albany driver Steve Jorgenson finishing in fifth. Fast time of the night went to Bri- cen James of Albany at 18.205 sec- onds while Shannon Horn of Mo- lalla was the Crocker Cars Trophy Dash winner and the victors in the heat races were Cronk and James. Tim Baker of Sheridan cap- tured the Mini Truck feature win in his first start to become the fourth different feature winner in the class. It so happened to be that Baker was driving for Stinnett Racing which produced the previous feature win- ner Jeremy Stinnett the week pre- vious. Mark Vonsild of Scio finished in the runner-up position at the line over Canby chauffeur John Kreig- shauser,'who finished third. Fourth place went to Pete Haag of Alva- dore in fourth and the fifth place finisher was Jefferson's Jennifer Robbins. Quickest in qualifying was Kreigshauser at 20.305 seconds while the heat race and trophy dash was won by Tim Baker. Friday evening will be the fourth Kart race of the 2012 season where fans can see the upcoming talent of not just the Willamette Speedway but the entire Northwest. Next Saturday will be the first ever Iron Giant Challenge presented by Platt Electrical Supply. The event will include a 50- lap Classic Sportsman feature along- side the DirtCar Super Late Model, USRA Modified, Sportsman, and Mini Truck classifications.

DIFFICULTY THIS WEEK: * From page 16 was the first and last time I ever made that shot. That night Frank and I tried to hitch into the nearby town of Pittsfield, but ended up walking the whole four or five miles. We found a nightclub and quickly spotted two girls sitting at a table and walked up hoping for a little conversation and possibly even a dance. As we arrived at the table and began to sit down, they abruptly got up and left, never even giving us a chance to say a word. How rude. As we looked around, we no- ticed that we were the only two guys in the whole place with long hair and beards, shorts and sneakers. We made a pact that we wouldn't cut our hair or trim our beards until after the hike. Apparently, my ear- lier basketball play wasn't the only long shot of the day. We left and walked all the way back to Dalton, arriving late that night. My boots get screwed Most people go through at least two pairs of hiking boots on the 2,100-mile trail. I made it with just one pair of Dexters. With only about 300 miles to go, the soles started coming apart, flapping when I walked. To fix this problem I stopped at a local hardware store in Maine, Moderate -k -k -/t ACROSS 1 Four qts. 4 One of Hollywood's Wilson brothers 8 Back 12 'T' strain? 13 Exceptional 14 Therefore 15 Affectionate parrot 17 Panorama 18 Tend a text 19 Flexes 20 Smaller map 22 Twosome 24 Benefit 25 Biblical tales 29 Hostel 30 Foe of Rocky and Bullwinkle 31 Eggs 32 Reduced from AAA to AA+ 34 Declare 35 Differently 36 Sports venue 37 Place 40 Admitting customers 41 Covers 42 Settee for two 46 Jason's ship 47 Basin accessory -k Challenging Hoe BOYI m 1 :2 12 15 II 20 21 24 2g 32 II 37 38 41 46 49 48 Yon maiden 40 Hammer- head part 50 Say it isn't so 51 April 15 payment DOWN 1 Solidify 2 Past 3 Serenade, often 4 Trip around the world? 5 Tarry 6 Bungle 7 Homer's neighbor i 6 I 22 I 43 8 Echo, for short g Green land? 10 On in years 11 Joins the crew? 16 Paradise 19 Prejudice 20 Footnote abbr. 21 Zilch 22 "Gay" city 23 Saharan 25 Spacecraft compart- ments 26 Trysting venue 27 Tied 10 11 II 27 28 II 44 45 m __ 28 Detective writer Paretsky 30 Hairless 33 Cause 34 War god 36 Mimic's forte 37 Rebuff a masher 38 Grow weary 39 Advantage 40 Microwave, e.g. 42 Started 43 Have bills 44 "Eureka!" 45 Cowboy nickname WWW.LASSENRV.COM 541.917.7395 877.373.2678 1103 PRICE ROAD SE, ALBANY, OR 97322
