Trenchard Wins Third Roger Haudenshild Tribute At Southern Oregon Speedway
White City, Oregon...June 2...Taking the lead from Preston Jones early in the race, Nick Trenchard went on to victory in the 25 lap IMCA Modified Main Event Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speedway. This was the 6th Annual Roger Haudenshild Tribute race, and the win paid $2,000 to Trenchard. It was also his third win in the big event. He added $200 to his totals by winning the special 11 lap Crack The Whip race. The additional purse money was sponsored by the Haudenshild Family and Dusty's Transmissions of Central Point.
Jones paced just one Main Event lap before Trenchard made an outside pass in Turn 2 to gain the lead. On the third lap, Albert Gill went by Jones in Turn 2 to gain second with Duane Orsburn making a backstretch pass on Jones for third. By then, Trenchard was a straight away in the lead, leaving a good battle between Gill and Orsburn for second. Trenchard was working lapped traffic and in command of the race when a caution flag flew for a Jon DeBenedetti spin on lap 11. Brett Provost spun on the front stretch to botch the first restart attempt. Trenchard continued to lead the next restart with Orsburn making an inside pass on Gill in Turn 2 to gain second. Trenchard was setting a rapid pace and soon had a straightaway advantage once again. The man making the charge was Dave Duste Jr, who had fifth on the last restart. Duste took fourth from Jones on lap 17. Orsburn was doing a good job of handling the pressure of Gill in the battle for second, but Gill made a low pass in Turn 4 of the 22nd lap to reclaim the position. Trenchard was never seriously threatened in posting an impressive victory. Gill was a strong second, and Orsburn spun in Turn 2 on the final lap as he was battling Duste for third. Duste claimed the third position, followed by Zach Fettinger and Jones.
The 17 car field ran three ten lap qualifying heat races. Trenchard, Gill and Jones picked up the wins in those races. Mark Wauge blew a motor on the opening lap of his heat race to end his night. Duste claimed four lap Trophy Dash honors. The IMCA Modifieds return on June 16th, followed by the Wild West Speedweek race on June 23rd.

Stoutenburgh Has Luck On His Side
In First JOAT Labs Hornets Win
White City, Oregon...June 2...Taking the lead on the 14th lap, point leader Jason Stoutenburgh went on to win the 20 lap JOAT Labs Hornets Main Event. It was his first win of the season. Ashtin Hedges had led the race from the start and appeared headed for his second straight win when mechanical failure handed the lead to the reigning champion Stoutenburgh.

Six lap heat race wins went to father Tim Hedges and son Ashtin Hedges. Ashtin Hedges moved into the lead at the start of the feature, followed by Tim Hedges and Chris Boynton. A Turn 2 spin by Brandon Wonsyld brought out a lap two caution flag. Ashtin Hedges continued to lead Tim Hedges on the restart and Stoutenburgh was already up to sixth. A Turn 2 pass on the fifth lap gained Boynton second from Tim Hedges as Stoutenburgh was up to fifth. Stoutenburgh made a big move into third on lap seven as Zach Nelson spun on the back stretch for a caution flag. Ashtin Hedges continued to lead Boynton on the restart. Stoutenburgh made a high pass in Turn 3 of the 11th lap to take second from Boynton. Dylan Irving pitted on lap 13, and Ashtin Hedges saw his impressive run up front end when he stalled on the backstretch for a lap 14 caution flag. Stoutenburgh led the restart ahead of Boynton, but Boynton had mechanical issues on the front stretch. Ashland High School competitor John Ferreira actually pushed Boynton off of the track. A Turn 4 pass on lap 15 gained Wonsyld second from Tim Hedges, and the final caution flag flew for debris on the track. Stoutenburgh led Wonsyld on the restart as Zach Nelson moved in to battle Tim Hedges for third. Stoutenburgh went on to victory with Wonsyld a strong second.
