Miracle Win for Mitchell at Deming Speedway

Miracle Win for Mitchell at Deming Speedway

5/31/19

Everson, WA – Kyle Mitchell pulled quite the rabbit out of his magician’s hat in winning the main event of the evening on Les Schwab / Little Caesars Night at Deming Speedway in the Speedmart 600 Open division. Brock Lemley, Lane Taylor and Levi Hillier also collected feature wins.

Mitchell began his magic show by rallying from a mid race caution in his heat race to finish fourth, locking him into the 10th starting spot for the 25 lap A Main. Kyle methodically worked his way to fourth with 7 laps remaining and started battling Chance Crum and Skyler Jennings for a potential podium finish when opportunity came about, and the proverbial rabbit emerged from the hat. Race leader Jared Peterson had looked dominant but began slowing coming out of turn two and pulled his car to the infield. Crum and Jennings both chose the wrong line trying to pick their way past a lapped car, and with the top side of turns one and two wide open, Mitchell drove past both of his competitors and the lapped car in one set of turns to take the lead as Peterson moved off raceway. A lap 22 caution would give Crum one look at a restart but Mitchell was too good, railing the top of the track hard to pick up the win, with Crum and Kyle Johnson following him. Ryley Mayer, Kaden Holm, Jennings and Ryan Holz won the heats.

For the third time in the month of May, Brock Lemley drove to the win in the Shots 2 Go Espresso 1200 division. Lemley led all 25 laps of the main, only seeing his advantage dwindle in traffic, but never enough to feel challenged. He was followed to the finish by Steven Hendrickson and Alex Lewis. Heat winners were Hendrickson, Tyson Cross and Derek Holmwood.

In his season debut at Deming Speedway, Lane Taylor went wire to wire for a win in the Mytrafficman.NET 600 class. Taylor was chased early by Colby Thornhill and late by Levi Klatt, but neither were close enough to stop Taylor from taking the win. Klatt and Thornhill would finish second and third. Klatt, Brody Ferguson, Keira Zylstra and Carson Guffie were the heat race winners.

The Levi Hillier show continued at Deming Speedway in the Clean Crawls Junior Sprints. Starting sixth, it only took one lap before Hillier advanced to the lead, taking the top spot on the second circuit and cruising to his fifth win of the year. Peyton Drake and Levi Kuntz rounded out the podium. Heat wins went to Hillier and Drake Hadlock,
