Start your engines – Elkins Raceway hosts Saturday Night Thunder Memorial Day weekend

KERENS – Elkins Raceway gave drivers the green light to experience Saturday Night Thunder in the mountains. The various races held on Saturday, May 28 brought race fans of all ages together for an evening of family-fun.

Last week’s rained out feature races were completed Saturday as well as regular races. This action-packed evening jump-started the season after several weeks of rain cancelations. As the green flag fell, the upcoming checkered flag was all that mattered then.

Feature winners are as follows:

  • Super Lates – Tyler Carpenter
  • Crates – Paul Wilmoth Jr.
  • Modifieds – Jesse Rupe
  • Street Stock – Kevin Keene
  • Hot Mods – Roger Hull

Come on out to Elkins Raceway on Saturday, June 4 for Autograph & Picture Night. Don’t be shy — walk on the track, get in line for an autograph, take some pictures and meet your favorite drivers.
