This year’s Klash will remain a one day event, however due to many of the CRA teams having never raced at Kalamazoo Speedway and with the recent announcement that Kyle Busch will be racing in both the CRA event as well as in the Outlaw Super Late Race, we are going to have a non-mandatory open practice for both the CRA and Outlaw cars. There will be no transponders or scoreboard being used at Tuesday’s practice. Practice tires will of course be sold at Tuesday’s practice however there will be No Outlaw Super Late Model Race Tires being picked out, being sorted or being purchased/mounted for Wednesdays Klash! Race tires will be sold at 9AM Wednesday when the pit gates open.   Also remember that no trailers will be allowed to park in the infield for Wednesdays Klash, but drivers will be allowed to leave their cars/equipment in the infield following Tuesdays Practice.

Mike “Bubba” Brooks picked up the victory in Saturday night’s “Kalamazoo Klash Tune-Up Presented by Applebee’s” for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Outlaw Super Late Models at Kalamazoo Speedway. AJ Foote, who lost the lead to Brooks on a late restart, finished a solid second ahead of Billy Shannon, Rick Senneker and Marc Casey. Mark Shook returned to the track after a couple of weeks off and finished sixth ahead of Matt Frazier, Brandon Lyons, John Chapman and Brandon Zachary. Foote set quick time for the event with a lap of 12.868 seconds.

The Super Stocks once again put on a great show with Buddy Head narrowly holding off a hard charging Brandon Lyons for the victory. Chris Shannon finished third ahead of Scott Rugg and fast qualifier Kenny Head. The second half of the top ten was led by Kelli Jo Hofacker over Rob Hardy, Jack Cook, Jordan Hunderman and David Guarino. Heat race victories went to Buddy Head and Rugg.

John Foote Jr. emerged victorious after a very competitive thirty lap Pro Stock feature. Former champion Greg Haynes finished second ahead of young Ryan Beadle, Barry Jenkins and Brent Hook. Fast qualifier Budd Hybels finished sixth beating out Zach Westdorp, Ron Landis, John Bassett and Tommy Hamilton. Westdorp and Greg Brown won the heats.

The Mini Stocks saw young Chaz Hook, son of veteran driver Brent Hook, come out on top of their twenty-five lap feature event. Fast qualifier Logan Knight finished second ahead of Jeremy Collins, former champion Frank Stager and Nolan Potter. Shane Clark led the second half of the top ten over point leader Jerime Damron, Brian Echtinaw, Sierra Lantz and Josh Salter. Clark and Collins won the heat races.

Jerry Jansen Jr. worked his way from deep in the field all the way to the front to pick up the victory in the twenty lap Cyber Stock feature.  Brian Gregersen finished second ahead of Kyle Shannon, Doug Nelson and Jerry Jansen III. Drew Maxwell was sixth beating out Bob Miller, Kyle Jansen, Ryan Hufford and Josh Roberts. Cliff Lambert set quick time while the heat race victories went to Miller and Matt Majewski.
