By Rocky Mountain Raceways | Posted - Sep 15th, 2014 @ 9:36am



WEST VALLEY CITY - Eric Rhead secured tonight's Maverik Modified main event win. Starting from the 13th position, Rhead passed Johnny Luttmer on lap 12 for the second position and then overtook Michael Haddenham on lap 15 for first place. Rhead led the remainder of the 50-lap main, while the field scrambled for position at the second-to- last points race of the season.

Mark Ith Jr. successfully made it second by lap 25. Defending Winged Sprint Champion, Jimmy Waters finished in third, Luttmer finished in fourth, and Haddenham rounded out the top five. Going into the final race of the season, there are mere points separating Ith Jr, Tyler Whetstone, and Lynn Hardy in the 2014 points chase.

Tim Fahrner added to his winning season with tonight's Comcast Super Stock main event win. Fahrner took the lead on lap 11 after a side-by-side battle with James Ford. Travis Walker passed Ford on a lap-13 restart, claiming a second place finish. Ford finished in third, Nate Walker finished in fourth, and John Yakovich finished in fifth. Fahrner was also tonight's fast qualifier and heat race winner.
