Cabin Fever 100 Kicks Off 2015 At Springport Motor Speedway 

By: Chris Fobbe - Springport Motor Speedway 

 

Springport, MI (5/3) -- 27 of the traveling stars of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour were on the grid for the series fifth ever appearance at Michigan's Most Popular Paved Track. With several states and provinces represented within the field and stars from bother nearby and far away would comprise the diverse starting order. Clio, Michigan driver Trevor Berry lined up on the pole with Illinois veteran Josh Nelms to his outside. Berry, who was dominant in the early portion of the 2014 iteration of this event before being sidelined by mechanical woes, looked to be well on track to avenging his heartbreak a year prior. Berry would dominate the opening 66 laps, before once again, the mechanical gremlins snuck up and bit the 22 year old driver, being sidelined by a broken trailing arm. This would set up a battle between New Castle, Indiana's Dalton Armstrong, and the winner of last September's Michigan Cup 100, Grant Quinlan. The two drivers would beat and bang around the 3/8s (.375) mile, but after contact between the two slowed Quinlan in the closing stages of the event, it was to be Armstrong claiming his first career victory in the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour. Hunter Baize would come home in second with Birch Run, Michigan's Defending Series Champion Dan Leeck. Fourth place would be where Quinlan slotted in with Chris Koslek completing the top five. Quinlan, of Harrison, Michigan would be the fast qualifier for the event with a 15.155. The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour returns to the Springport Motor Speedway on Saturday September 19 for the Michigan Cup 100 Presented by JEGS.com. 

 

The next event on the track would be the 50-lap feature for the Broaster Chicken ICAR Top Speed Modifieds Tour Northern Division, for their first of three events in Springport. 27 cars were present with 24 filling the grid after qualifying and last chance races. 1998 Modifieds Track Champion Nyle Weiler would lead the star studded field down to the green. Weiler, a crafty veteran of the Springport track was met with heaps of trouble from lapped traffic, as he lead the opening 23 laps, before after being held up behind a lapped car, Eaton Rapids, Michigan driver Jason Parish was able to snake past to take the point. The race went wire-to-wire with no cautions, which allowed Parish to use lapped traffic mastery to gap the field to an unsurmountable lead as he took his first career win with the traveling Modifieds series. Weiler would come home in second with Nick Clemens, 2014 Super Late Models Track Champion Phil Massuch, and Jordan Pruitt completing the top five. Bobby Heyink would win the Last Chance race with Nick Clemens being the fastest qualifier with a 15.712.  

 

The first of the Speedways regular divisions to race would be the A-Division for their 25 lap feature event. Mike Havens started things off up front, but two-time Defending Track Champion Joe Barnhart would be the one to slice his was to the front on the opening lap. Barnhart looked to have things well in hand, but the lone caution of the race tightened everything back up, and this would allow fast qualifier Tyler Hufford the ample opportunity to sneak past on lap 21 and take his first feature win at the Springport Motor Speedway. Craig Stephens would come home second with JD Hancock, Barnhart and Ben Hidy completing the top five.  

 

The B-Division was next for an exciting 20-lap event. Shonda Harbin started things off up front but she was overtaken by Jesse Collinge on the opening lap. Collinge and Randy Riever would engage in a spirited battle around the Springport banks, but unfortunately the two cars tangled, which would see Defending Champion Bryan Noble take over the lead. From that point on it was clear sailing as Noble took the opening night victory. Tim Rugg was second with Collinge, Jeff Wolfersberger and Harbin completing the top five.  

 

The C-Division was to be the next event on the track for 15-laps of fun. Don Hopkins was on the point for the start of the race, and lead the opening pair of laps before being overtaken by Tyler Hawkins. Hawkins would soon have to deal with Deb Noble as she looked to join her husband Bryan as a feature winner at the Springport Motor Speedway. That dream would soon become a reality on lap nine, as she overtook Hawkins and went on to claim her first ever feature win. Hawkins was second with Jerry Schroll, Brian Barden and George Speer completing the top five. 

 

Tyler Hufford was the fast qualifier for the ABC Division with a 16.132. 

 

Bob Spencer claimed a hard fought feature win for the GLOW Modifieds series in their first of six visits to the Springport Motor Speedway over Jim Lawson and Don Smith. Morgen Baird was the victory for the GLS Mini Cup Series over Darren Bohne and Jarrod Pritchet 

 

The Springport Motor Speedway will be back in action this Saturday, May 9. The Outlaw Super Late Models make their  2015 debut alongside the ABC Stock Cars and the debut of the Sport Stocks.
