Cole Sneaks Past Borden For Summer Thunder Win

Cole Sneaks Past Borden For Summer Thunder Win

Yakima, WA - Night one of the Fall Brawl at Central Washington State Fair Raceway saw veteran racer Jay Cole use all his veteran guile in taking a win over the Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series.

Luke Didiuk set out to the early lead in the 25 lap A Main, with Devin Borden and Colton Heath keeping pace. Didiuk maintained a small but comfortable lead as the top three made their way into traffic. On lap ten, that slower traffic changed the entire complexion of the A Main. Borden had moved up raceway as Didiuk approached a slower car on the low side of the track as they raced into turn one on lap 11. Contact between the slower car and Luke sent Didiuk spinning up track, collecting Heath, fourth place Tanner Holmes, fifth place Cam Smith and more in a wreck that drastly remade the top ten. Cole would restart second behind Borden, and stalked the youngster as they cruised toward the back of the field again. With slower cars looming, Cole trapped Borden on the bottom of the speedway behind a lapped car and ascended to the lead on lap 21, with Jason Solwold following him through and into second. Cole would hold off Solwold over the final four laps to secure his first Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series win, with Solwold second (after going to the back of the field on lap 1) and Borden third. Solwold was the fast qualifier on the night. Cole, Heath and Colby Thornhill won heat races.

The Iron Giant Street Stock Series ran four heat races on the night to help set lineups for their Saturday night season finale’ race at Central Washington State Fair Raceway. Zack Simpson was dominating on the night, winning heats one and three, with Sean Cronk winning heat two and Jack Parshall taking the top spot in heat four.
