Darren Williams of Phoenix, Arizona was the mod winner in a Pro 4-link car. He was absolutely AWESOME!

It was some great racing. Many fast cars got consumed in the feature but I guess every car in the dance was fast.

The 09 started in the middle of the front row and was definately fast and checked out early.

Tom Charles in the 81 fell out at the start during one of the 3 or 4 attempts to get the first lap done.

Justin Boney in the 18 moved to the front mid race and took the lead looking like the man to beat, when he rolled a tire off and went to the pits allowing the 09 to regain the lead.

Dave Hardesty in the 73 car had gotten the jump from the outside pole on one of the 3 or 4 starts of the race, and was competitive for sometime but got crossed down low in 2 and spun out. He did manage to finish the race about 10th.

Logue in the 69 fell out early after starting in the second row.

Brian Mullin in the 75 car was probably the next strongest contender finishing second and was fast all day, charging to the front in the qualifier with a broken upper left A-arm that did not slow him down for several laps, he just stomped it and carried it through the turns.

After the win the 09 spun out on turn 2 and was missed by the field, so he made his victory lap and cut a couple donuts in turn 2 to celebrate.

The crowd was pretty passive most of the day, quiet and not really rowdy. Figure they were drunk or tired as it was a long day but the races were over fairly early.

Sorry guys, I don't have all the names and car numbers..can't tell the players without a program and I refused to contribute anything extra to IMCA..haha, sorry had to say it Jammin'

Congrats to our LAYNE Customers in the big dance..

Unfortunately during the start of the race, Darren Williams bunched up the field two times in a row, causing accidents behind him that took out a few cars.

Darin Duffy had an impressive run in the Pro-Chassis 19D. He started 10th row inside and finished 3rd.

The Skyrocket chassis of Kelly Shryock looked to be strong early but got collected in a wreck that happened right in front of him and broke a control arm on the right front.

Jay Noteboom started on the 6th row and advanced up to 2nd before rolling off the left rear tire of his Harris chassis as he was about to challenge for the lead.

Justin Boney piloted the Harris chassis house car from his 4th row starting spot to take the lead only to roll a tire off on the rough Boone surface and end his bid for the win.

John Logue was involved in a mishap on lap 1 that sent his Harris chassis over the bank on turn 3 resulting in enough suspension damage to end his night early.

Congratulations to forum members Jesse Stovall and Tom Charles.

Jesse not only qualified on his first trip to Boone but finished 4th in the A in his Hoffman chassis.

Congratulations to Rooster for making the big show in his own personal brand of chassis. Tough luck on that early flat.

Congrats to anyone who makes the big one!
I have been trying for years. It seems that a good heat draw is everything. I have also noticed the same guys continously drawing front row heat race starts every year. Is it really luck?
I must commend Boney and Shryock. I dont know them personnaly, but they seem to have to earn everything they get each year! They looked like the 2 hardest chargers all week.

I am so sick about hearing about Darren Williams, he needs to start concetrating on his family, and a little less on his racing.Now that this season is over maybe he will spend more time with his son!!!!

I am not married to Darren Williams, I was married to Darren Williams, I know he is a great driver, I will be the first to say that, we have a 13 year old son that needs his father, now that he has won the Nationals it time to concetrate on our son, who by the way inspires to be just like his father, all I am saying is enough is enough. I know he cares and loves his kids, but just remember racing is a hobbie your kids are foreever.

It would be a shame to have the son spend time with him working on the car and at the track learning something that one day he may be interested in and to have all of the memories that racing and spending time with his dad could bring,especially since the boy inspires to be like his dad.If Darren is spending time with him at the shop or track or whatever,how is that any different than going shopping or to the hairdresser or wherever if that is what they both enjoy.If Darren is not spending any time with the boy that is a different story and maybe you should encourage them to do the racing thing together to become closer instead of being bitter because is having fun by racing.You only live once so have fun while it is possible.

Tell his father that, not a message board. Random people on here are not the people who need to hear what you are saying. You should be saying to your son's father. I am not trying to sound disrespectful...just honest.

okay okay every one is right, and I appolgize for all the fans, I just get upset that our son has not even to this day seen the trophy from boone, only in pictures, I also get pset that he missed that race, he has been to every big race Darren raced, When I heard he was starting up front I knew deep down he was gonna win, Our son was going to miss it. So I am sorry if I made it sound personal, I will not do that anyore, and yes by the way I am still a big fan of Darrens, I know he is an excellent driver, He has a talent, he can drive, and has the potental to race with the big boys. So no I am not a deranged ex wife who hates him, I am an ex-wife who next to our son am still a huge fan, and will contiue to be one.
