NASCAR Super Late Models feature No. 1:  David Anderson won his race by .355 of a second ahead of the winningest female racer at the Bullring Kayli Barker.  Anderson was joined by his father, who finished 5th in the race, he dedicated the win to the mother of a friend who passed away earlier in the day.  Anderson said "There have been a lot of technological advances, and we've worked really hard on the car.  This chassis is about half my age, so to get this to run like this against these guys that were behind me is just something amazing.  I didn't look behind me, I just focused forward and let my spotter tell me if they got close.

 

USLCI Thunder Cars feature:  Ron Reed won his race by 9.376 seconds ahead of Doug Germano.  Reed said, I got a lot of help from my crew setting the car up right, and it's easy to drive once it's done right.  I'd like to say thank you to my family, and I'd like to say thank you to Mr. Trickle.  Chuck's been a great guy all these years, and my first late model was built in Chuck's garage even though he didn't really know me.  I'd like to say thank you to Chuck and his family, with all they've been through and for all he's done for this sport.  

 

NASCAR Super Stocks feature:  Court Connell promised a Bullring win on this night, and he delivered, by winning the race .654 of a second over Johnny Spilotro.  Connell said, I made the change, to Super Stocks, because the car was a good price.  I decided to come out and race it this season, and the Joker theme was my son's idea.  Thank you to all my family and friends who came out to see me, and to Matt Larsen, sorry for all of the bumping.

 

USLCI Bandolero Bandits feature:  Amilleo Thomson appeared the have his race won.  But, his car broke on the final lap, Braden Conner raced by for the win, Thomson ended up limping his way to a fourth place finish.

 

USLCI Bandolero Outlaws feature:  Camden Larsen won his race .240 ahead of Jesse Love.  

 

NASCAR Grand American Modifieds feature:  Doug Hamm won his race by 2.599 seconds over Cameron Morga.  Hamm said, This win is for my mom, she hasen't been feeling too well lately.  I love you mama!  

 

NASCAR Bombers feature:  Aaron McMorran remained perfect in his bomber feature, or so we thought, but, he wad DQ'd when his car failed post race inspection.  That made Sam Jacks, who finished .306 of a second behind, the race winner.  

 

Former track champion Chuck Trickle, the father of the late Chris Trickle for which the night is named, drove Pete Meyer's car in the 25 lap race and finished 10th.   He joined McMorran in the Winner's circle to offer his congratulations.  Trickle said, I've been out of the drivers seat for a long time, and there's cars going here and there and your mind's going crazy.  McMorran caught me on the second lap, so I must have really been driving slow.  Pete Meyer let me drive his car after mine broke, and this was fun,

 

USLCI Legends feature:  Tyler Fabozzi won his race by .848 of a second ahead of Michael Todd Glazier.  Fabozzi said, It definatly makes it a lot easier.  Any time I felt like I got a good lead, I'd come up on lapped traffic car and see the guy behind me reel it back in.  TJ. Clark and my dad gave me a perfect Legend car, and it went the way we needed it to.

 

NASCAR Super Late Models feature No. 2:  The six-time track Champion is Back!  Gafforini ended a nearly year long drought by winning this feature on Chris Trickle night!  Gafforini won in dominating fashion by beating Justin Johnson by 3.220 seconds.  Gafforini said, I'd like to thank J & S Automotive for giving us such a great power plant.  With all that power and the weight that needs to go in the car, Howe Racing sent us a nice care package this week and the crew put it all on.  We've all been working on it, so, it's special, that everybody's here.  

 

NEXT RACE:  The highly popular Night of Fire end the track's month-log break on Monday, July 3, with a full night of racing.  The Bullring's first ever Figure 8 Trailer Race and one of the city's best fireworks show highlighting the evening.
