Motor Mile Speedway hosted a Father’s Day weekend celebration of “Rockin’ and Racin’” with KISS Tribute Band “Kiss Army” and a full slate of racing with its NASCAR weekly racing series.
KISS Army performed two sets of legendary KISS rock music in the full KISS makeup and regalia. Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss were all represented. Fans got out of their seats and gathered all around and in front of the stage to give a memorable show.
The Late Model Stock Car division, the speedway’s top class, had a pair of Twin 50-lap races. Mike Looney dominated the first race by leading every lap. Kyle Dudley settled for second place
Dudley looked as though he might pull off a win in the second race but was passed by Looney on the final lap to make the finish the same as the first. Cory Dunn finished third in both races.
The Sportsman Division featured a pair of Twin 30-lap events with Karl Budzevski picking up a
win in the first race. Richard Caldwell and Dale Cline rounded out the top 3. Jamie Sweeney won the second race with Jacob Porter and Karl Budzevski finishing second and third.
Sparks flew and tempers flared in the second race when an altercation between Dale Cline and Daryn
Cochram, who started in turn 4, ended with both drivers having substantial damage when they
put on a demolition derby on the front stretch in front of all the fans and NASCAR officials. The temper tantrum between the drivers resulted in DNF’s for both drivers.
Doodle Lang was the winner in the Mod 4’s with Tony Sarver finishing second in his first appearance this year, and Johnathan Hall finished third.
Ray Sowers won for the Super Streets; Jamie Lafon won for U-Cars after Cory Thomason was
disqualified after post-race inspection, and William Hale won for the Pure 4’s.
