[August 15, 2011]  Racing action returned to the Lincoln Speedway on Friday night, along with cooler temperatures. Mother Nature threatened rain but was the racers’ friend.

Kicking off the evening was the makeup Wild Thing/Hornet feature. Trisha Benninger captured her first-ever feature win, wheeling the No. 84 around the track to victory lane. The crowd went wild when she crossed the finish line. Not only was it her first feature win, she did it on her dad's birthday. No. 24 Kenny Butterfield won Friday's feature race.

Race fans were on the edge of their seats for the Crate Late Model feature. Brad Denney in the 11 led most of the race but ended up falling back to third place after being passed by Nick Bauman in the B1 and Jeremy Lierly in the 7L. Bauman held off Lierly and took the checkered flag.

Great racing action continued in the Street Stock class as well. Brandon Kessinger in the 57 fought his way to victory lane, followed by Chuck Barnes in the B and Andy Minett in the 1M.

For the E-Mods, Todd Bates in the 49, who is no stranger to victory lane at Lincoln Speedway, took home the checkered flag. With a close race between Bates, Morrow in the 28 and Anderson in the 31, the 49 machine battled his way to the first-place finish.

Modifieds had a scary few minutes in their feature, when 41G Matt Goulden rolled his car in between turns three and four, bringing out the red flag. Thankfully, Matt walked away, but his car wasn't that lucky. Flyin' Brian Lynn in the 14 started on the pole and led the whole race. Taking home the checkered flag, Lynn captured his sixth feature win at Lincoln Speedway. Turpin in the 75 was charging after the 14 but couldn't quite catch him. Turpin took second, followed by 35 Brandon Roberts.

The Lincoln Speedway will be in action again Saturday night, Aug. 20.
