Witt Wins HOT Opener


IMCA National Champion Henry Witt, Jr. of Waco opened the 2001 point season at the Heart O’ Texas Speedway Friday night with a win in the modified feature after a duel with local veteran racer Keith Green of Robinson. Speegleville driver, Jimmy Don Sumerour, took home the third place prize.

Billy Shaw from Bellmead was the first pure stock driver to cross the finish line in the feature, but his car failed to pass a post race engine inspection. Mike Coker of Frost and James Reid and James Pierce of Waco moved up to the top three positions.

Reigning street stock champion, Doug Andrews of Waco, displayed more of his winning style with the win in the feature event. Shannon Dulock of Axtell followed in second, and Jeff Moore of Whitney won third.

Steve Pfeiffer of Waco battled longtime friend/foe Sid Kiphen of Gatesville for more than half the race before going ahead to win the hot stock main event. Second and third places went to Roddy Scott of Waco and Stacy Russell of Hillsboro.

Jeremy Oliver of Robinson kept Shad Stevens of Troy on his back bumper throughout the race and past the checkered flag in the mini stock feature to claim the win. Benji Kirkpartick of Elm Mott settled for third.

The cruiser class had the fans revved up before Kenneth Dean of Elm Mott collected the winner’s trophy. Rand Thompson of Hubbard came in second, and Farone Richmond of Whitney took third.

IMCA sprint cars will kick off their point season at the speedway next Friday, April 13 as the action continues for IMCA modified, hot stock, street stock, mini stock, pure stock, and cruisers. Gates will open at 6:00 P.M. and races begin at 8:00 P.M. For more information, call 254-829-2294, e-mail us at I35dirt@aol.com, or visit our web site at www.hotspeedway.com.
