Alger, WA – Janicki Industries presented Ladies Night Out at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night and after a couple of year absence, Other winners on the night were Rick Smith and Vance Hibbard.
From his pole position start, Lemley controlled the Budweiser 360 Sprint Car main with a four to five car length lead over Eric Fisher. Three different incidents stopped the race before six laps were complete. The longest green flag run went from lap seven through twenty as Brock worked his way into traffic and Cam Smith moved into second. Lemley had just begun navigating the slower cars as Smith closed when a caution flew for Trevor Cook slowing in turn two. On the restart, Lemley drove away from Cam, leading the rest of the distance to grab his victory in two seasons, and the first for his Uncle Bill in over 12 years. Smith would finish a season best second with Fisher taking third. Robbie Price was the quick qualifier. Heat winners were Fisher and Colton Heath.
For the second straight week, RIck Smith raced to victory lane in the High Society Modified Main Event. It took 20 laps for Smith to find the combination to get past Craig Moore, but when Smith diamonded the corner off turn four, he got a huge drive that powered him past Moore and into the top spot. Moore kept him close over the final five circuits but the night belonged to Rick, who won ahead of Moore and his brother Kevin Smith. Kevin and Rick were also the heat race winners.
Vance Hibbard picked off his fourth main event of the season in the Outlaw Tuners. It was smooth cruising for Hibbard out front as he was never seriously challenged after taking the lead on the second lap. Matt Ploeg and Clint Meins rounded out the podium.
