Crash-and-bash brings Desoto's season to a close

by Scott Lockwood

A packed house saw some of the nation's top monster truck drivers and a unique night of racing brought Desoto Speedway's 2014 racing season to a close Saturday night.

Former World Freestyle champion Jimmy Creton headlined the monster truck show in his Bounty Hunter ride. After a freestyle run around the track that featured crushing cars, Creton, now driving the Iron Outlaw truckm scaled a tall mound of dirt placed on the front stretch and successfully landed a backflip to the delight of the large crowd in attendance.

Other trucks on hand included Dawn Creton in Scarlett Bandit, Nate Kirchner in 5 Finger Death Punch and former Desoto Speedway announcer Todd Morey in Iron Outlaw.

Saturday night's racing action included enduro-style racing where racers continue racing under green regardless of conditions on the track. In the 50-lap 6 and 8-cylinder enduro, Richard Campbell passed Duane Campbell two laps into the event and had built a solid lead over Joe Lombardi when the red flag flew at the 25-lap mark. The field was inverted and Duane Campbell found himself back in the lead.

Richard Campbell needed just three laps to get back to the field. As other cars spewed debris all over the track, Campbell picked his way through the carnage and sailed to the win. Nicholas Malverty finished in the runner-up spot.

In the 30-lap 4-cylinder enduro, Mike Gamache looked like the man to beat over the first half of the race. On lap 12, several cars spun in front of the leaders, forcing a red flag.

The field was inverted for the last 18 laps of the race. Wesley Rounds inherited the lead but was quickly overtaken by Chris Larson for the top spot. About five laps after the restart, Gamache and Rounds got together and spun, which took Gamache out of contention for the win.

Larson was unchallenged for the lead over the final 10 laps and cruised to the victory. Darrell Taylor finished second.

In other action Saturday night, Ron Sorenson and Brittany Hart won the 25-lap switch-off race, Cory Shantry won the 6-cylinder road course race; Gamache held off Sorenson to win the 4-cylinder road course race; Joe Lombardi won the 6-cylinder flag pole race; Casey Rounds won the 4-cylinder flag pole race, and Lombardi won the demolition derby.

RESULTS FOR 11-15

Hernandez Wins Race and Championship

by Jake Wilson

Coming into tonight’s season finale for the Desoto Pro Trucks, Palmetto's Nick Hernandez and Bradenton's Danny Anderson were locked in the tightest points race in all of Desoto Speedway's classes. Hernandez led Anderson by just one single point after the drop. The night started off great for Danny Anderson as he put his #50 Truck on pole with the fast lap in qualifying. Hernandez was close behind posting the 2nd fastest time. After the Nine truck field was inverted, Anderson and Hernndez led a charge through the field. Hernandez would take over first on lap six with Anderson close behind in 2nd.

Nick Hernandez, who competes in a number of divisions here at Desoto Speedway had already been to victory lane earlier tonight when he picked up the win in the 25 lap Sun Belt Rentals of Ft.Myers Street Stock feature event, was looking to claim the Pro Truck Championship. Nick used the high line as he often does to work to the front and once he got there he would not relinquish the lead. Nick Hernandez picks up the victory and by a margin of just two points claimed the Track Championship. Danny Anderson battled hard but was denied victory and finished off a great season with a runner up finish in the race tonight, as well as the championship. Sarasota's Dennis Colletti was 3rd.

In other action tonight the Desoto Wingless Sprints were in action for 40 laps. Brooksville's Jason Kimball and Tampa's Dave Steele claimed heat race victories earlier on and looked to carry that over to the feature. Both cars were fast, but none faster than Kimball. He would dominate the race leading nearly the whole race and would take the checkered flag to score the win. St. Pete's Sport Allen took 2nd and Dave Steele finished 3rd.

Another championship was decided as Parrish's Duane Best won the LKQ Pick Your Part Pure Stock 20 lap feature and the 2014 Track Championship holding off his brother Sarasota's Jimmie Best and Palmetto's Chad Cummings who took 2nd and 3rd respectfully in the race as well as the championship.

Desoto Bomber class had a big race on tap with a 40 lap featured event that saw Brandon Duechscherer set fast time but would start in the six spot after the invert. The 58 of Larry Welter Jr started outside of pole sitter Aaron Holmes, both drivers from Auburndale, to set the field and Welter would lead the first twenty laps. It was a close battle between Welter and Josh Todd in the 75, while Duchscherer was battling to pass Jeff Firestine in the third and fourth spots. After a restart with ten to go Duchsherer would take over the lead and go on to win the featured event followed by Larry Welter Jr second and Jeff Firestine was third. After a protest in tech by the third place car, first and second were DQed which turned the win over to Firestine, Holmes second and Kenny Gibson third.

Savannah Skaggs of Cape Coral started her third race in the Mini Stock class starting from the rear of the field for this fifteen lap feature. Skaggs battled veteran drivers Ronnie Robinson and Randy Johnson for the entire race and was able to complete a last lap pass to take the win crossing the stripe first. Skaggs had to forfeit the win as she knew starting the race she could not use radios which turned the win over to Bradenton’s Ronnie Robinson who also won the mini stock track championship. Other winners this evening included Mason Cassidy in the Rookie 4's, Nick Hernandez won the Sunbelt Rentals of Ft. Myers Street Stock feature.

Next week November 22nd Desoto Speedway wraps up it's 2014 Racing season with their always popular Crash and Bash night which will consist of 4 Monster Trucks. The Monster Truck show features outrageous jumps, crushed cars and Jimmy Creten driving the Bounty Hunter attempting the first back flip on this Florida tour. Other trucks will be the -Scarlet Bandit with Dawn Creten,
-Knucklehead with Nate Kirchner 2 time 2014 winner
-Iron Outlaw with Wauchula’s Todd Morey coming off his first win in Denver
Along with the 4 monster trucks it is CRASH N BASH NIGHT starting at 7
