HUMBOLDT — Justin Folk has had a tough run at Humboldt Speedway in 2011. That changed Sunday.
Folk, who won the first Dwaine Whitworth Memorial race in 2008, recorded his first win of the new season in taking the 2011 Whitworth Memorial modified feature race. Folk took advantage of a caution to break out of the pack and take the lead from Bill Siemers of Valley Center.
Justin Folk had been running in second before the caution. He pulled away to win the NCRA/USRA Modified shootout at the Speedway. Siemers finished second in the 25-lap feature race with John Allen in third. Paul Snyder and Ryan Whitworth rounded out the top five.
The Whitworth Memorial was the second round of racing at Humboldt Speedway over the Memorial Day Weekend. The Speedway held its regular Friday night program.
On Sunday, Derek Michael came through a 19-car field to win the pure stock feature race. David Matlock ran second, followed by Blake Kisner, Levi Phillips and Tyler Kidwell.
In B-Mod action, Dalton Kirk turned in a textbook performance in winning the feature. Dustin Tholin of Topeka made a hard charge but ended second. Jeremy Chambers finished third with Riley Whitworth in fourth and Jim Pearcy of Springfield, Mo., took fifth.
Late in the B-Mod race, Jimmie Davis and Leon Bash were involved in a crash. Neither driver was injured but their cars sustained damage and took out the front straightaway signal lights on the track.
Jeremy Wilson won Sunday’s factory stock feature and Derrek Wilson was second. Tim Phillips finished third with Billy Shadden crossing the line in fourth and Ethan Lamons in fifth.
On Friday, Derrek Wilson notched the win in the factory stock in front of brother Jeremy, who had been dominating the division so far this season. Jeremy Wilson was in second and Scott Stuart placed third. Ethan Lamons was fourth and Brandon Weide ran fifth.
Johnny Bone Jr. roared to the feature win in the USRA modified class. Justin Folk showed he was coming around, running a strong second on Friday. Scott Daniels took third and Brian Bolin was fourth. Justin Johnson of Gardner placed fifth.
Jeremy Chambers captured the win in the B-Mod feature Friday. Dalton Kirk finished in the runner-up spot as Matt Thompson of Bentonville, Ark., was third. Tim VanGotten drove from the back of the pack to take fourth and Scott Collins was fifth.
Jeremy Willard made a statement in his run for the points chase in the pure stock division. Coming from starting in the fifth spot, Willard won Friday’s feature race.
Derek Michael may have used his strong second-place run in Friday’s pure stock race as a tuneup for Sunday’s victory. Tyler Kidwell drove to third place on Friday followed by Brandon Rowland and David Matlock.
This Friday, Humboldt Speedway hosts its annual Old Timer’s Reunion. Legends from the past 40-plus years gather to exchange stories and memories. Gates open at 6 p.m. and races start at 8 p.m.
