The Baker Iron and Metal 4 Cylinder 500 to Win Results:
17 Baker Iron and Metal Four Cylinders hit the track Saturday Night. 4 Cylinder qualifying would see Eddie Stewart doing double duty set his second quicktime of the night, Brian Roberts 2nd, and track record holder Allen Hackworth 3rd. The first heat race featured Eddie Stewart putting his c9 machine on the pole for the 15 lap feature, Bo Morris 2nd, and Vernon Hounshell 3rd. Heat two saw Brian Roberts put his 23 machine along side the c9 with the win in heat two, 11 year old Blake Patton would finish 2nd, and Gunner Johnson would finish 3rd. The 3rd and final heat race would feature Allen Hackworth and track point leader Tyler Hayes on the front row. They would battle hard but Allen Hackworth had the advantage as the checkered flag waved, Tyler Hayes 2nd, and Clint Cox 3rd. 14 of the 17 cars would make it to the feature front row starters Eddie Stewart and Brian Roberts led the field to the green flag for 15 laps of action. Immediate caution would erase the start and make a complete restart except for the 33 of Allen Hackworth, who would go to the infield and pick up the tail. Green would replace the yellow and racing resumed. All 14 cars seemed to battle hard all over the racetrack. Caution would eventually wave on the c9 who had a flat tire! They replaced the tire and came back out to resume on the tail. Hackworth and Stewart both coming from the tail were going to be fun to watch. As they came to three laps to go Allen Hackworth had caught the leader Brian Roberts and take the lead. Then the 33 team had some terrible timed luck as they lost a transmission with 2 laps to go and would have to take it to the pits. Brian Roberts would then get the win, Eddie Stewart would come back to 2nd, Tyler Hayes 3rd, Gunner Johnson 4th, and Clint Cox took home 5th.
