Allen earns feature win in 600 at Deming

Spud Allen, Eric Drake, Austin Sheridan and Jesse Schlotfeldt earned feature wins in their respective divisions during Midseason Championship night Friday, July 6, at Deming Speedway.

Allen trailed Derek Torkelson early in the Speedmart Hoosier 600 open division, but the veteran driver found a narrow window on lap 17 and made the pass into first place. Allen cruised the rest of the way to earn his first-place finish.

Lap 17 proved to be a good lap for Drake, as well. Trailing early, Drake passed Tyson Cross at the conclusion of lap 16 and Liam Ryan looped his car, allowing Drake to make the pass into first and win the 1,200 division.

Sheridan led every lap of his 30-lap A-main feature in the 600 Restricted division. Tristan Thomas took second, and Ashley Thompson placed third. Schlotfeldt picked up his seventh feature win of the year by leading every lap in the Kasey Kahne Junior Spint division.
