First Responders Night at Carteret County Speedway was one to remember. A big “thank you” to all the first responders that came out for a special night of racing.
First up was one of two Bomber features and Trace Raynor took the win over Tyler Stalls and Joey Vereen.
The Junior Mini Cups hit the track and Colby Gurganus took his second win in a row over Shane Ward and Alexis Steffan. Colby gave his dad a late birthday present and dedicated the win to his father. There was a scary accident involving Mylah Provost. The speedway safety team did a great job in assisting Mylah and her team.
The Street Stocks were next on the track for 20 laps. Gary Rochelle overcame an early spin to edge out Chip Daniels and James Wells after leader Tyler Smith had issues late.
Next up was the Senior Mini Cups. They put on a great race, Carmen Odom, Chris Brewer, and Matthew Brewer thrilled the crowd. Unfortunately, another scary incident involving Garrett Cooper red-flagged the race for a little bit. Again, the track safety crew and local first responders did a fabulous job and we thank them for their efforts.
The Legends were next and DJ Murphy was dominant, taking the win over Scotty Benford and Edward Radley.
As darkness fell, the Chargers took to the track for 25 laps and Michael O’Brien edged out Brandon Clements and James Stroud for the win. Mathew Gurganus in his first Charger race was impressive.
Rain began to fall as the Bombers got ready for their second race. After track drying and crews clearing the windshields for the drivers, Cornell Williams took the win after some issues in tech. Eddie Humphrey and Rob Trent rounded out the podium.
Again, we would like to thank all the first responders, track workers, and safety personnel for their hard work and professionalism.
The next event will be Saturday, May 14th, for The Croatan Spring Jam. All the details and tickets can be found at https://www.carteretspeedway.com/springjam
