On and emotional, warm evening, Jeremy Orr topped both of the featured Expert finals – Open A and 450cc Sportsman A – at the Baltimore County Trail Riders/ Delta-Cardiff Fire Company-sponsored short track. The emotion was because this was a celebration of the life of Mason Farro, who died in an accident during practice in June at Trail-Way Speedway.

As usual, Nick Henderson scored several wins, going three for five on the night. He added another class to his agenda, the Over 30 class. He also scored wins in the 250cc Sportsman A/B and Vintage Lightweight classes. He lost the Adult 150cc class to Colton Smith, and stalled in the 450cc Sportsman A while running in midpack.

One of his hardest-fought battles was in the 250cc Sportsman class. Colton Smith’s early lead was negated by Chris Hathaway when he hit the hay bale by the start-finish line.

Hathaway made the restart, in which Phil Libhart took the lead, ahead of Henderson, Smith and Austin Wherley. After staying close, Henderson slipped into the lead at the end of the fifth lap, while Smith took second off turn two right afterward.

The Over 30 final was a game of follow-the-leader, as Henderson took the lead, ahead of Cory Strickler, Libhart and Sean Simmons.

Henderson took the lead in the Vintage Lightweight contest, ahead of Bill Kraft, Ray Stillwell and Rick Kohlbus, and lapped all but Kraft.
