Bobby Jones’ decision to bypass the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at New Jersey’s Wall Stadium, which was to be his first attempt on that series, paid off in a big way for the Palmerton ace as he roared to his second Modified win of the season at Mahoning Valley Speedway and in the process padded his top spot in the championship standings.

By virtual of a mid-race scuffle that shook up the lead pair of Ron Haring Jr., and Gene Bowers, Jones would inherit the lead and then steadily drove ahead of runner-up Kyle Strohl on his way to career win number 41.

“We were supposed to be at Wall today running the (NASCAR) Tour race and that was special for me and the only thing that was going to keep me from being here tonight. Honestly that is where we wanted to race and not that I didn’t want to be here at Mahoning but luckily for us it paid off and we’re grateful for that. I’ll get my shot at a Tour race yet,” said Jones.

Haring set the quick pace once underway with Bowers and Kevin Rex Jr., chasing closely. Then on lap 12 the decisive moment of the race unfolded when coming off turn two Haring, who was on the outside line, stood looking to hit his mark for the next corner and as he was turning down Bowers made slight contact that caused the leader to spin and send several others scattering into turn three.

When the scene was cleared and the field reset Jones, third at the time, was placed first over Rex and Strohl. Jones then raced to textbook style the rest of the way with a flawless effort.

“I was watching those guys ahead of me and just tried to stay square behind them and it was unfortunate that that got together,” said Jones. “This car has been so strong for us this year and we’ve hit on one of the best set-ups that I’ve had under me in some time.”

Strohl, who the prior week had beat Jones to the checkers, took second after a close battle with Rex who got third for the second week in a row. An impressive run was turned in by Nick Baer. He ran strong all race long and was fourth while Josh Scherer completed the top five.

The Late Models ran a pair of features, the first a make-up from the previous week and then the regular scheduled show and splitting the wins where the top two in class as point leader Frankie Althouse raced to his third consecutive win in the first feature and in the nightcap Mike Sweeney produced his first win of 2019.

In race number one Althouse used a lap eight restart to drive past Kenny Hein for the lead and once there made it a race for second having no problem in keeping everyone in his rear.

The run for second saw yet another fine performance turned in by young Samantha Osborn who held off veterans Matt Wentz, Jeremy Miller and Sweeney.

In the later feature Sweeney thrust from third to first on the opening lap for his first time at leading this season. Being upfront was one thing but staying there turned out to be another as for most of the race he was being heavily pressured by Althouse who stayed bonded with him be it to his side or on his rear bumper.

But Sweeney would prevail and win 16 years to the day from his career first victory. For Sweeney it marked his 57th Late Model verdict.

Johnny Bennett continues to follow in the footsteps of his legendary dad, John Bennett. It started in the Pro 4s when he, like his dad became a winner. Now as rookie in the Street Stocks, that same path is continuing as the second generation driver drove the popular “Woolley Bully” to his career first class win.

An outside pass over Cody Geist on lap 13 of 30 put Bennett at the front and afterwards withstood a very determined Jared Ahner for the score.

A multiple winner in Street Stocks and Hobby Stocks, Corey Edelman can now add a Dirt Mod triumph to his list of conquests.

Driving Lynn Peters’ No. 611, Edelman had the lead from the get-go but worked his tail off in securing the victory as he fought hard in the waning laps with division kingpin Mike Stofflet. Stofflet made numerous attempts to pass but Edelman stayed strong and protected his spot with each passing lap.

At the checkers it was a crowd pleasing oh-so-close exhausting win, the 24th overall for Edelman.

By winning his first Pro 4 race of the season, Cody Kohler was able to snap the hold by Bobby Kibler Sr., and Jake Kibler who had been taking the headlines up to now.

B. Kibler was leading with five laps to go when J. Kibler tried to squeeze inside of him which did not pan out for either driver as they both went spinning.

Sitting third at the time was Kohler and when the race resumed he was perfect to the checkers. Tucker Muffley notched a career best second while B. Kibler rebounded to third and retained his point lead.

John Petro had a night he won’t soon forget. Racing for only the fourth time ever, he became a first time winner with the Hobby Stocks.

Piloting a car that a few months ago was his daily driver, Petro decided he wanted to go racing and built the car for competition. After mediocre runs the first three times out, Petro started on the pole on this night and would do a veteran-like job of fending off Devin Schmidt and Peyton Arthofer en route to the memory making win.

Ryan Newman overcame some early troubles in Saturday night’s All-Star Race to finish 13th in his Acorns Ford Mustang.

The 2003 Driver of the Year got into the main event via his 2002 victory in the All-Star race. With a unique qualifying session that includes three timed laps and a four-tire pit stop at max speed, Newman rolled off the grid sixth following Friday’s qualifying session for the four-stage race.

Just a few laps in Newman reported he possibly had nose damage on his machine after contact with the No. 12 machine. The team went to work on the nose as well as the handling at lap 26 when the caution flew, trying to loosen up the No. 6 Ford.

He went on to finish stage one 14th before pitting for more adjustments at lap 33. Following the stage two restart, the yellow flag waved once again when Newman went spinning through the front stretch grass. Despite the damage, the South Bend, Indiana, native kept it rolling and stayed on the lead lap.

Under the same yellow, crew chief Scott Graves brought the No. 6 machine to pit road ensuring the fenders were cleared for the final segments. The costly time on pit road forced Newman to settle with a he quickly maneuvered his Acorns Ford inside the top five within the first five laps of the segment. A caution flag was displayed shortly after setting up a 10-lap shootout.

With the restarts going three and four wide, Newman battled before losing positions forcing him to settle with a 13th-place finish in the non-points race.

Newman and the No. 6 team return to action next weekend at for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Race coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET next Sunday on FOX. Coverage can also be heard on MRN and SiriusXM Channel 90.

“I don’t know what the hell his beef was. I thought he was a lap down. Our day was over. We lost track position there, got sideways, crossed up and basically buying time there to see if something was gonna happen at the end. They got four-wide off of four. Hell, I thought he was a lap down. I checked up and he ran into my left-rear and that’s the last I saw of him. Then after the race he comes and runs into my back and turns me all around and I pull up next to him and he dumps me into four. Where I come from you get poked in the nose for that, and that’s what he got.”

In a race full of stars, Kyle Larson shined brightest in Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After a stirring drive to the front from the rear of the field, Larson held off Kevin Harvick over the final laps to become the first driver to win the Monster Energy Open and the All-Star Race on the same night. The driver of the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet made moves high, low and in the middle to assume the point in the final 15-lap dash for $1 million.

Harvick reeled in Larson over the final circuits but wasn’t able to make a pass to capture his second consecutive All-Star Race triumph, finishing a scant 0.322 seconds in arrears of Larson – who won in a Monster Energy Cup Series car for the first time since 2017.

Larson had to sweat out advancing into the All-Star Race, taking a car he believed was the event’s best and having to fight out a win in the final stage of the Monster Energy Open to advance to the big show. From there, Larson quickly asserted himself – moving into seventh before the first stage ended.

Harvick appeared to be the man to beat for much of the night. His pink, Millennial-themed machine had the measure of the field in the early going before a loose wheel robbed Harvick of track position.

Amid three- and four-wide battles through the pack and exciting, wheel-to-wheel racing previously reserved for tracks larger than 1.5 miles, the 35th running of the biggest all-star event in sports delivered in spectacular style – particularly for the race winner, whose Victory Lane drought came to an end in lucrative fashion.

Following Larson and Harvick, who led a race-high 33 laps, Kyle Busch finished third after hitting the wall late in the race. Joey Logano, the 2016 race winner and defending series champion, was fourth. Bubba Wallace – in his first All-Star Race after winning Stage 2 of the Open – ended up fifth in Richard Petty Motorsports’ first All-Star Race since 2015.

KYLE LARSON, No. 42 Advent Health Chevrolet (Race Winner): "Gosh, after the year we've had, I wouldn't have guessed that we would get our first win at the All-Star Race. But the way the format is and how crazy the race is, it kinda helps us out. We always seem to run good on this weekend, so it just feels like a big relief to finally get a win. It's been a long time since I've been to victory lane in a stock car. After being close to winning this race a couple years ago and then allowing Joey (Logano) to get by, it feels really good to get some redemption. … What makes this race so exciting is the short runs, people are going crazy. Even though it's a 20-lap run, there's still a caution or two in each segment because everybody is just going nuts. The restarts were wild.”

CHAD JOHNSTON, No. 42 Advent Health Chevrolet (Winning Crew Chief): "It was a good time for us. We've had a rough year. We've had a lot more speed than we've shown in points, obviously. We haven't been able to string together any finishes until as of late. We come off a third-place finish in Dover and a seventh-place finish at Kansas, and with the exception of Phoenix, those are the only races we haven't had issues. To come here to the All-Star Race and to be able to take home a million dollars is huge for us and hopefully a stake in the ground for a turning point for us."

KEVIN HARVICK, No. 4 Busch Beer Millennial Car Ford (Runner-Up): “That’s how you take the fastest car and don’t win the race with it. We had an incredible Busch Beer Ford. (Crew chief) Rodney (Childers) and the guys on the team did an incredible job. It was unfortunate. The guys did a great job preparing a race car, and we weren't ready to make a pit stop on pit road tonight. We just need to be ready to race; we've done it all year. We just need to show up (and not) have it be a disaster. They've been great all year and tonight wasn't great, that's for sure. We spotted the whole field and started tail-back with 15 laps to go. Once they get single-file, as soon as they drive in your lane, they'd push up a groove, so you've got to go where they aren't. (Larson) was fast enough to run the bottom, and that's where I needed to run to really make time."

KYLE BUSCH, No. 18 M&M’s Hazelnut Spread Toyota (Third-Place Finisher): "We had a really fast M&Ms Camry. Probably was the only guy to pass for the lead after a given set of laps. On restarts, we couldn’t go anywhere. We just weren't fast enough, but we had long-run speed. That's all there is to it."

Stage 2 Recap (Laps 31-50):

● During the fourth caution on 58, Almirola stayed on track but told the team he was having a hard time gaining momentum on restart.

● The All-Star Race featured 10 lead changes among seven different drivers. Nineteen drivers comprised the field.

 

Aric Almirola, Driver of the No. 10 Smithfield Ford Mustang:

 “You have to be super aggressive in this race if you want to be up front competing for the money at the end of it. You can’t really pass after it gets strung out so, you’ve got two or three laps to be as aggressive as you possibly can be. If you check out of the throttle for the slightest little bit, they go by you three- and four-wide. It’s all about momentum and being in the right lane on the restarts. Everything is situational if a guy in front of you wiggles and checks up, and you check up to keep from running over him. You lose four, five, six spots in one straightaway. It’s aggravating, but that’s the way it is when you don’t have a lot of horsepower, it becomes all about momentum.”

With last week’s racing cancelled due to Mother Nature’s lack of cooperation. This week the pits were full and race teams were prepared for the week’s racing action. It was the Dominion Floor Covering/ Armed Forces Night at the Races where there was sun filled skies at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. Two hundred and sixty laps from seven different featured race divisions made up the evening festivities. In action were the Cycle City Corp Bandoleros and Legends series with the Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks. Also taking the track were the Parts Barn Enduro division as the Bojangles UCar’s, Pepsi Grand Stocks and the Taylor Waste Services Late Models were set to battle for a hundred laps. Here’s a recap of the racing and how it all came down.

Cycle City Corp Bandoleros 15 Laps: Jacob Derrick started the afternoon qualifying by notching the Bando series pole. His fast lap set at 21.291 seconds beat out Ryley Music’s efforts but earned his spot starting second on the front row. With the green flag in the air, Jacob Derrick would show the field into turn one. Leading lap one would be Jacob Derrick but the lead would still be contested as Ryley Music wanted the spot as well. Side by side the leaders would go as Music would get to lead a lap in the battle before the races first caution. Back to the green and in a single file start, Jacob Derrick would be the leader with Ryley Music in tow. Logan Clark was equal to the leaders and looking to move to the front. Halfway in the race and Music continued to chase the leader. Derrick who seemed to be much better in clean air maintained a car length lead over Music. Laps later, Derrick soon began to pull away and when the checkered flag waved, it was Jacob Derrick crossing first for the win. Derrick from Victory Lane, “Yeah, it was a great car all day. Logan in the fifteen helped me out a lot because Ryley was fast on the outside and he helped me by pushing me”. When asked about winning being fun, “Yes sir”!

Race Results:

  1. #8 Jacob Derrick; 15
  2. #47 Ryley Music; 15
  3. #15 Logan Clark; 15
  4. #14 Aaliyah Paynter;15
  5. #22 Wyatt Philyaw; 15

Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks 25 Laps: Chase McAdams put his Super Truck on the pole with his 19.166 second lap. Ronald Klein just missed being on pole who was just twelve thousandths of a second off the pole time of McAdams. Green flag waved to the Super Truck division which twenty five circuits would decide the winner. Chase McAdams the pole sitter would lead lap one followed by Ronald Klein who decided not to make too much on the start and quickly tucked in line. Rick Poust did so likewise but making moves and picking up the third spot would be Keith Wheeler. Several laps in, McAdams race lead was four lengths as Klein continued to chase. At the halfway, still on the move was Keith Wheeler who at this point caught Klein and looking for the pass. At the same time, Klein was catching the race leader when suddenly Wheeler turned Klein to bring out the caution. With Wheeler forced to the rear for rough driving, the restart saw race leader McAdams with a mirror full of Rick Poust. The race would experience one last caution for debris but Chase McAdams would hold off the advances of Rick Poust and go on to win the Super Truck feature. McAdams in Victory Lane, “They were all getting closer and closer in my rear view mirror”, the race winner said. “I don’t know if it was something with the truck or something on the track, I don’t know what happened but the track was as greasy as I don’t know what. That was a tough win”.

Race Results:

  1. #62 Chase McAdams; 25
  2. #9 Rick Poust; 25
  3. #27 Keith Wheeler; 25
  4. #28 Ronald Klein; 25
  5. #3 Ryan Huff; 25
  6. #65 Shannon Lester; 25
  7. #38 Paige Cain; 24

Race Results are currently unofficial pending post race inspections. Official results will be updated as soon as its available. Super Trucks are unofficial at this time.

Parts Barn Enduros 30 Laps: In Enduro series action, the grid was set by pill draw and drawing the one pill to start on pole would be Mel Vermillion. Race began and coming around to lead lap one would be Michael Joyner. Charles Johnson who also wasted no time marching to the front soon found himself in second. Laps later the race had its first red flag when Zach Drake hit the inside retaining wall. Once cleared, the green was back on the speedway and with the better restart would come Charlie Bryant to the front, Joyner would fall back in line to second. But just before the halfway, Charlie Joyner would better the race leader in traffic and regained his race lead. Laps later, Joyner would enjoy his six car length lead before another red flag to the feature fell. After a quick clean up, the race resumed as Charlie Joyner continuing to lead. Charlie Bryant would chase in second followed by Colby Vance who started near dead last. Laps later and headed into the latter stages of the feature saw Michael Joyner as the class of the field. Colby Vance would eventually get by Bryant for second but the race belonged to Joyner for the race win. Michael Joyner had this to say, “Its funny cause during practice, I went out with the emergency brake on. I thought somethings wrong with the cars and my crew told me that the back rear tires were smoking. That’s all I could think that happened because it didn’t do it during the race. We had a tire go down two minutes before the race so the one we changed it with made the car tight. Man, we just had a blast”.

Race Results:

Cycle City Corp Legends 25 Laps: Ryan Matthews grabbed up the Legend series pole with a hot lap set at 18.096 seconds. Spencer Saunders narrowly missed his first pole but took the two spot in the front row. With the flagman waving the green, pole sitter Ryan Matthews showed the field on into turn one. Out of turn two, Matthews secured the point but Spencer Saunders wouldn’t let the leader get away. Nose to tail were the leaders and watching it all was Matt Dail riding third. Lap after lap, Saunders would haunt Matthews race line and poking underneath to see if the move can be made. Halfway as there was much more in the battle for lead as Ryan Matthews had it and Spencer Saunders wanted it. Then the move of the race as Spencer Saunders got the drive off turn two that he needed and passed race leader Matthews. From there and in the clean air, Spencer Saunders would go on to win in Legend series action. Saunders had this to say from Victory Lane, “Awe man what a great car the last few weeks we’ve been on stride. To run second against forty other cars at Carteret was something special and gave us a good notebook for the Fall Nationals coming up in October. I got a boat load of people to thank, gotta thank my mom and dad in this crazy deal each week. Just gotta thank all my friends, all my family”.

Bojangles UCar 25 Laps: Mike Farley would take the UCar series pole showing a 19.174 second lap. His lap bested the hot wheel of Brandon Wood by only twenty one thousandths who would get a share starting on the front row. With the green flag in full display and coming around to lead lap one would be the pole sitter Mike Farley. Brandon Wood settled quickly into second with Tyler Borden in third. Laps later, both Farley and Wood checked out from the rest of the grid in what looked poised to settle the race themselves. Austin Davis would make his way to third when the race had its first caution involving Casey Bristow and Dean Ballew. Back to the green, Brandon Wood would get the better restart and take over the race lead. But Mike Farley would not let the leader get comfortable as the leaders were nose to tail. Halfway, the battle continued to ensue but coming into the picture was Austin Davis still running third. The race had its first caution with just seven laps remaining and with the restart, Brandon Wood continued to lead. But laps later the battle for the top spot got real when Farley looked underneath but Wood would deny. Losing ground in making the move, Farley settled back into second and from there, Wood would go on to win. Brandon Wood from Victory Lane, “I went on the outside there and I think we burned up the right front cause at the end it was getting really hard to handle. I want to thank Mike because he probably could have dumped me but I’ve driven him clean and I’ve told him that’s how I want to be driven so thanks Mike. That was good, fun, hard racing, I love it!”

Pepsi Grand Stocks 40 Laps: Tim Wilson earned the series pole position posting a 17.732 second lap. Jimmy Adkins was just as fast in qualifying, earning the second position on the grid. Sammy Gaita, Paul Lubno and Michael Waters rounded out the five fastest in Grand Stock qualifying. Green flag waved high in the air and coming out of turn two with the lead would be Tim Wilson. Jimmy Adkins soon tucked in single file with the leader as Sammy Gaita and Paul Lubno settled third. Laps later, business at the front picked up when Adkins looked underneath the leader to see if anything was there but Wilson was still strong off the corners. At the halfway, Wilson continued to lead as Jimmy Adkins rode in second. Lubno had worked his way to third who soon had his sights on Adkins. Wilson who looked to be tough in the first half of the feature soon fell off and passing him for the lead was Jimmy Adkins. Paul Lubno would follow through as well but Adkin’s lead wasn’t long when Lubno took a turn at the lead with just seven laps remaining. Lubno caught a break when Wilson raced Adkins hard for second, from there Lubno cruised for the Grand Stock win. Lubno in Victory Lane, “This class may have a small car count but the competition is there. It took a little patience, run our own race and it paid off at the end. Me and Jimmy had a good run, I like Jimmy, me and him have been racing for thirty some years. Tim Wilson ran me clean, it was a good race”.

Taylor Waste Services Late Models 100 Laps: Greg Edwards would once again claim another Late Model series pole sporting his fast lap at 15.742 seconds. Brother Danny Edwards earned the second spot on the grid and completing the five best in qualifying was Connor Hall, Brenden Queen and Justin Carroll. Green flag waved and emerging out of the second turn with the lead would be Greg Edwards. Second place Danny Edwards Jr would have his hands full early with Connor Hall as Brenden Queen who ran fourth watched it all happen. Laps later, Connor Hall worked his way past Danny Edwards for second as did Brenden Queen for third. Meanwhile, Greg Edwards had checked out mounting up an eight car length lead. The race experienced its first caution on lap twenty one when Rodney Boyd had a flat tire. Bunching back up the field for the restart, Greg Edwards quickly secured the top spot. After a brief battle for second with Connor Hall and Brenden Queen, Hall had managed to earn the spot. Justin Carroll got involved with the passing as well who made his way to fourth but back up front, Greg Edwards was in full cruise mode sporting a twelve car length lead. Halfway in the feature would show much the same with Greg Edwards as the race leader. Lap traffic soon came into play which help Edwards extend his race length lead to a half a straight away. Riding at this point in the feature, tire conservation was the obvious objective. Latter stages in the race saw leader Greg Edwards continue to dominate as Connor Hall needed a caution. But the caution never came as Greg Edwards wins going wire to wire in a caution free event. Greg Edwards had this to say, “That was the most solid race car I’ve had in a while here. Thank God for a clean, safe race cause sometimes these full moons can funny. We’ve been knocking on it and were slowly working to it and we’ve had decent finishes all year. We found something last week, last race and I think we put it towards this week. The car was pretty much spot on, thanks to this crew, thanks to the Air Force again, that’s the Commanders Cup, that’s pretty impressive. I’m really excited about that”.

Langley Speedway PR

Kyle Larson is a million dollars richer after holding off Kevin Harvick in the final 15-lap stage of the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race, an event that ended with Larson in Victory Lane and Clint Bowyer tangoing with Ryan Newman on pit road.

Earlier Saturday afternoon, Larson won the Monster Energy Open at Charlotte Motor Speedway to make the All-Star Race field. Then, in the four-stage, 85-lap main event, Larson became only the second driver in the All-Star history to win the Open and go to Victory lane in the All-Star Race.

With a huge push from Kevin Harvick after a restart with 12 laps left, Larson surged into the lead in his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, leaving Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott in his wake off Turn 2. Busch chased Larson until his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry bounced off the Turn 4 wall with six laps left and surrendered second place to Harvick.

Larson kept Harvick at bay the rest of the way and crossed the finish line .322 seconds ahead of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang. For Larson, it was a welcome win in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season that has been a struggle so far.

“This is unbelievable,” an elated Larson said after a burnout on the frontstretch that shrouded the grandstand in smoke. “This whole day was up and down. From the B Main (a dirt-track racer’s nomenclature for the Open), we were getting a little bit of damage, having to repair the car. Had some great restarts there the last few, and Harvick gave me a heck of a push to get to the lead from the third row, and that was huge.

“Then again to get by the 18 (Busch) that final restart, just had to guess kind of what he was going to do behind me and try and take his air away. The 18 surprised me how good he was. But, man, this is amazing. I've been close a couple times. I feel like every time I've been in the All Star Race I've been close to winning, so it's neat to finally close it out.

“There's a lot of people from the shop here today, so we get to do some celebrating. I'm excited about that.”

Harvick, who dominated the second stage, arguably had the fastest car, but slow pit stops repeatedly cost him track position, leaving the driver frustrated with second place.

“A letdown,” was the way Harvick described his evening. “That’s how you take the fastest car and don’t win the race with it. You spot them the whole field… and just an incredible Busch Beer Ford. (Crew chief) Rodney (Childers) and all these guys on the team just did a great job, and it was unfortunate the way pit road went tonight because it wasn’t even close for anybody having a good car like we had tonight.

“It was a great night for performance, just a bad night on pit road.”

Busch, who won the 30-lap first stage, held on to third-place at the finish, followed by Joey Logano and Bubba Wallace, another transfer from the Open. Aric Almirola, Austin Dillon, Alex Bowman, William Byron and Martin Truex Jr. completed the top 10.

Repeated contact between the cars of Newman and Bowyer on the cool-down lap ended with Bowyer turned into the outside wall. Later, on pit road, Bowyer rushed to Newman’s car.

Newman climbed from his car, and the drivers exchanged words instead of blows as they stood on pit road.

“The 14 (Bowyer) chopped me on the front straightaway earlier in the race,” Newman said after the race. “…Then after the race I just went up and tapped him in the back to let him know I didn’t appreciate the way he raced me.

“The he body-slammed me, and I hit him back a little bit on the back straightaway, and then he just cut across my nose in Turn 3. It doesn’t take much of a man to try to fight someone with a helmet on.”

Bowyer, who like Newman was called to the NASCAR hauler after the race, seemed mystified about the origins of the original conflict.

“I don’t know what the hell his beef was,” Bowyer said. “I thought he was a lap down… I checked up, and he ran into my left rear. That was the last I saw of him, and then after the race, he comes and runs into my back and turns me all around. I pull up next to him, and he dumps me into (Turn) 4.

“Where I come from, you get poked in the nose for that.”

Larson wouldn’t have been in the All-Star Race at all had he not won the Monster Energy Open, which decided three of the last four spots in the main event. Each of the first two 20-lap stages of the drama-filled qualifier ended with a two-lap overtime, the first of which was decided in Byron’s favor by .006 seconds.

On fresh tires, Byron roared through Turn 4 on the final lap of Stage 1 and made hard side-to-side contact with the Chevrolet of Wallace, who had stayed out on older rubber under caution for BJ McLeod’s blown engine. Byron’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet turned sideways, but he righted the car and beat Wallace to the finish line by little more than the length of the front splitter.

Wallace found redemption in Stage 2, again staying out on older tires for the overtime run. For two laps, Wallace held off the Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Daniel Suarez, who had new Goodyears, and when Suarez darted to the inside off the final corner, Wallace blocked, sending Suarez sliding through the infield and out of contention.

The stage win was a welcome change for Wallace, who has suffered through a difficult season in the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet.

“My mental game is really shot right now, but, damn, it feels good to win something,” Wallace said after the Open. “I have failed at a lot of things in life recently, but I am working to make those things better. We’ll see what we can get tonight.”

Larson (who won the last 10-lap stage), Byron and Wallace all earned spots in the All-Star Race, along with Open third-place finisher Bowman, who made the field as the winner of the All-Star race Fan Vote. All four of those drivers finished in the top 10 in the main event.

Clay Millican locked-in his first Top Fuel No. 1 qualifier of the 2019 season Saturday afternoon following setting the track E.T. record during the first round of qualifying at the second annual Virginia NHRA National at Virginia Motorsports Park. 
 
John Force (Funny Car), Jason Line (Pro Stock) and Andrew Hines (Pro Stock Motorcycle) are also No. 1 qualifiers in their respective categories at the eighth of 24 events during the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. 
 
Millican claimed his 21st career No. 1 qualifier after his pass of 3.749 at 325.30 set the track E.T. record Friday evening in his Parts Plus / Strutmasters.com dragster. He will be chasing his first win of the season and fourth of his career when he lines up against Dan Mercier Sunday morning for the first round of eliminations. 
 
“From the guy that qualified 12 times last year and only won twice, qualifying No. 1 doesn’t mean you’re going to win,” Millican stated. “Mike (Kloebler, crew chief) said we need to turn on win lights and that’s our game plan. This car has made a lot of No. 1 qualifiers, but our goal is to go consistently down the racetrack and turn on win lights. I’m not going to lie; qualifying No. 1 is pretty cool.” 
 
J. Force’s pass from Friday evening of 3.899 at 321.88 in his PEAK Coolant and Motor Oil / Heculiner Chevrolet Camaro set the track E.T. record and remained strong through Saturday’s qualifying efforts. He secured his second No. 1 qualifier of the season and 157th of his career. 
 
“I’ve got to give credit to Daniel Hood (crew chief), Brian Corradi (crew chief) and the entire team that make it happen,” Force said. “They gave me a good car. It was a little warm but that gives us our race day tune up and we’re ready. I still say to the (Franklin) family that bought this track that this is the best surface and that .89 broke the track record. I want to thank them and that is very important.”
 
Pro Stock three-time world champion Line’s pass from Friday evening of 6.563 at 210.11 in his Summit Racing Chevrolet Camaro stood strong through qualifying on Saturday. This is his first No. 1 qualifying position of the season, first since Las Vegas 1 2017 and 54th of his career. 
 
“I’ve got a really good race car right now,” Line stated. “I feel good about it. It’s really nice to get a green hat and I didn’t even know they still gave them out. We did test during the break so we’re not any worse off but it really was good for us. We didn’t make any mistakes, learned a lot and I feel like tomorrow we will have a great race day.”
 
In Pro Stock Motorcycle, the Harley-Davidson team leads the category securing the first two positions. Hines clinched his second No. 1 qualifying position of the 2019 season and 44th of his career with his run of 6.812 at 196.42 on his Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson Street Rod. Eddie Krawiec sits in the No. 2 position following his pass of 6.822 at 197.51.
 
“Our team does a great job in the heat,” Hines said. “We are learning our setup in this hot weather. Typically, I don’t look forward to the middle of the season because that is typically when our struggles start to happen for our team. It seems like we are hitting our stride right now in this 90-degree weather. We will take it as it comes.” 
 
In the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service, Khalid AlBalooshi claimed his first No. 1 qualifier of the season, racing to a pass of 5.774 at 257.28 in his Chevrolet Camaro that made its second appearance.
 
Eliminations at the Virginia NHRA Nationals begin at 12 PM E.T at Virginia Motorsports Park. 

Drama, excitement, surprises, tears. First-day qualifying for the 103rd Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge had it all. But then, that's become the norm for qualifying at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Following's Saturday's intense action on the hallowed 2.5-mile superspeedway oval, the fastest 30 qualifiers are locked into the field for the race on Sunday, May 26. The top nine advance Sunday to a shootout for the pole position. Second-day qualifying also features the Last Row Shootout that will include a pair of high-profile drivers who couldn't find the speed to make the top 30.

INDIANAPOLIS 500 PRESENTED BY GAINBRIDGE: First-day qualifying results

Spencer Pigot, the second qualifier of the day in cooler conditions, had the fastest four-lap qualification attempt at an average speed of 230.083 mph. The driver of the No. 21 Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet was joined in the top nine by teammates Ed Jones (sixth in the No. 63 Ed Carpenter Racing Scuderia Corsa Chevrolet) and team owner Ed Carpenter (seventh in the No. 20 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet).

"I feel great," said Pigot, whose best Indy 500 start was sixth in 2018. "Obviously, it's great to be on top of the speed charts and also to have all three of our Ed Carpenter Racing cars in the Fast Nine (Shootout) for the second year in a row. Just a testament to all the work everyone does in the shop throughout the offseason and leading into this race."

Team Penske also advanced three drivers to the Fast Nine Shootout. Defending Indy 500 winner Will Power (No. 12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet) was second fastest overall (230.081 mph), finishing his 10-mile qualifying run a scant 0.0011 of a second slower than Pigot. Simon Pagenaud qualified provisionally third in the No. 22 Menards Chevrolet and Josef Newgarden fourth in the No. 2 Shell V-Power Nitro Plus Chevrolet.

Also qualifying in the top nine were NTT IndyCar Series rookie Colton Herta (fifth in the No. 88 GESS Capstone Honda), 2016 Indy 500 winner Alexander Rossi (eighth in the No. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda) and four-time Indy car season champion Sebastien Bourdais (ninth in the No. 18 SealMaster Honda). The Fast Nine Shootout to determine the NTT P1 Award winner and starting order of the Indy 500's first three rows starts at 1:15 p.m. ET Sunday, following the Last Row Shootout at 12:15 p.m. NBC has live coverage of Indy 500 pole/bump day from noon-3 p.m.

At the opposite end of the grid, Pippa Mann clung to the 30th and final locked-in position Saturday with a four-lap run of 227.244 mph in the No. 39 Driven2SaveLives Chevrolet for Clauson-Marshall Racing. It provided vindication for the only female driver entered in this year's Indy 500, a year after she was one of two drivers who failed to qualify for "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing."

"We kind of miscalculated how much better the track conditions were going to get at the end of the day," said Mann, who secured a seventh Indianapolis 500 start. "By the time we realized how much better they were and how much quicker we'd have been able to run, there were too many cars in the (qualifying) line to pull our time to go. So I literally had to sit there sweating it out, and all that was going through my head was, 'Not again, please not again, please, please not again!"

The other Indy 500 driver who failed to qualify in 2018, James Hinchcliffe, is in danger of missing the show again after crashing his primary No. 5 Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda in a qualifying attempt at 1:24 p.m. Hinchcliffe's crew scrambled to prepare a backup car and had it on track within 2.5 hours. The 2016 Indy 500 pole sitter made three late qualifying attempts in the No. 5T entry, but none were fast enough to get the Canadian into the top 30.

"Obviously, it wasn't quite enough today," Hinchcliffe said. "Luckily, we've got a chance tomorrow. I've got a lot of faith in the crew, everybody at Arrow, everybody at Honda. They've done great today to rebound from a pretty bad situation. We just have to put our heads together, find a little speed on it tomorrow and come out and put this thing in the show."

Also unable to muster a qualifying effort good enough was two-time Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso, who made five attempts in the No. 66 McLaren Racing Chevrolet. The last try averaged 227.224 mph but was the final speed bumped from the top 30 by a faster qualifier.

"It has been a difficult day, and it follows a difficult week," said Alonso, who crashed Wednesday in practice, forcing him into a backup chassis. "We were running quite well this morning (for the first attempt) when the conditions were not too bad, but unfortunately we picked up a rear (tire) puncture and then we decided to wait until this afternoon to get back out on track. 

"At the end of the day, we didn't have the pace. ... I hope we can find enough to make the top three positions of the six (bidding for the last row). ... If it's not enough and we are fourth of six, it's what we deserve."

The drivers who qualified in the 10th through 30th positions are locked into those grid positions for the race. 

Six drivers - Alonso, Hinchcliffe, Max Chilton, Kyle Kaiser, Sage Karam and Patricio O'Ward - will compete in the Last Row Shootout. Each driver will make one qualifying attempt, with the fastest three earning the final spots in the 33-car field.

The Fast Nine Shootout will follow, with those drivers each making a four-lap run in reverse order of their speeds from Saturday to decide the pole sitter.

A full-field practice follows the Fast Nine Shootout, from 3:15-6 p.m. Sunday, and airs live on NBCSN. 

Coverage of the 103rd Indianapolis 500 on May 26 begins at 11 a.m. on NBC. This is the first time that the network will broadcast the race as the exclusive domestic media rights partner with INDYCAR.
