Speedway entertains locals


Saturday's Hayden Speedway Invitational, sponsored by Annette Hall Prudential Realty, awarded 12 winners from four different classes.

"All the races went really good," promoter Phil Goodwin said. "There were some good hard races going on."


In the sport stock class, Ed Hatch placed first, Jim Wilson was runner-up and Rick Arnold finished third.

Bo Lyons came in first in the street stock class; Michelle Powers placed second and Scott Heizer, third.

In the super streets class, Charlie Hall won and was followed by Richard Wisecup and Levi Wisecup, second and third, respectively.

The Western Colorado Racing Association, modifieds featured Doug Mills in first place, Nick Craig in second and Matt Beckett came in third.

Racers won a percentage of the overall payouts, which is based on how many cars show up.

The amount was not available from Goodwin at time of publication.

The Hayden Speedway is one-quarter mile in length and the number of laps depends on the race.

For example, Goodwin said heat races consist of 10 laps, trophy races have five and main events have 20.

"There is a 30-minute time limit, but the main objective is beating the rest of the guys," Goodwin said. "They race against each other"

Goodwin estimated the crowd at more than 320 adults and 58 kids.

"It was kind of cool because a lot more people came down there with their kids to meet the drivers and get their autographs."

The Sport Stock Shutout, sponsored by MJK Sales and Feed, is slated for June 2.

The featured races are: sport stocks, street stocks, super streets, modifieds and mini sprints.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and races begin at 6:30.
