Saturday night at Skagit Speedway was filled with sun, fun and excitement on and off-track as the 360 Sprint Cars and Shipwreck Beads Modifieds were joined by the Monster Energy Freestyle MX Stunt Team.
The night was full of action as Colton Heath brought home his second consecutive win which all but clinches his first 360 Sprint Car Championship. In the Shipwreck Beads Modifieds, Josh Muller made it two wins in a row after winning the A Feature at Grays Harbor Raceway on Friday night and taking home the hardware at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night.
In the Budweiser 360 Sprints, Colton Heath and the Law Motorsports team have all but clinched the 2014 series Championship after Heath was able to battle through a stoppage-littered 25 lap A Feature. After two early race stoppages and multiple caution flags, there were passes being swapped among the top five drivers with Trey Starks, Eric Fisher and Derek Roberts all aggressively battling for position. Michael Bollinger led the A Main until a lap 21 caution involving himself and Trey Starks after the two made contact in turn two, ending Bollinger's night. With Heath as the beneficiary of the top position, it was smooth sailing after the restart as he would go on to take the checkers. Fisher, Roberts, Jason Solwold and Justin Youngquist would round out the top five. Heat Race wins went to Derek Roberts and Bud Ashe. Heath won the MyTrafficMan.net Quick Time Award with an 11.786 second lap.
The Shipwreck Beads Modifieds made their second-to-last appearance at Skagit Speedway for the 2014 season as the crowd saw a new face on-track and in Victory Lane at the end of the night. Josh Muller took home the checkers on Friday night at Grays Harbor Raceway and decided to make the trek to Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. It all panned out for Muller as he got to the checkers first on Saturday after having to work for the win as Craig Moore led the first 13 laps of the Main Event. Muller was able to pull alongside Moore's 14M machine and make his car stick to make the pass. From there, Muller never looked back. Heat Race wins went to Muller and James Wolford.
