Clash at the Creek Day 1 Champions

Hammill, Ageee, Curtis, Johnson and more are Clash at the Creek Champions.

Night number one of the 4th annual, Clash at the Creek at Mountain Creek Speedway was a thrilling success with a packed pit area and fantastic racing. 110 entries filed in the gate looking for their chance to win a piece of the $1,100 cash prize promoters, Adam and Rebecca Stewart were giving away. This was the fourth race of the season for the speedway by the creek which also counted towards regular season points.

The night started off with the 206 Cadet division and it was Carson Hamill passing Adalynn Owens for the lead and eventually taking his first win ever. Owens would come home in second with brother Grayson third. Hunter Morgan in Blaise Keene rounded out the top five. The Hammill family will pull double duty this weekend racing both in flat karts and outlaw carts. The big boys of the 206 Sumo division were next and it was Brandon Agee pulling into the Kelly Stewart agent, Farm Bureau Insurance Victory Lane with Kevin McMillan second and Shawn Campion finishing third

The Jr. Lite division provided one of the most thrilling races of the evening as the battle for the lead waged all race long between Jackson McCleary and Jayden Stone. The two drivers would swap the top spot back-and-forth until the very last moment as McCleary made a move to the bottom coming off turn four, coming to the checkered to win the race in a photo finish. Stone settled for second with Cade Waddell completing the podium. Hunter Curtis was the big winner in Predator 375 in a race that paid $200 to win. Kenneth Rhyne and Jonathan Hagler were second and third

$200 was on the line in the 206 Heavy division and it was Mark Hamill pulling off the win and parking in the Kelly Stewart agent, Farm Bureau Insurance Victory Lane with Scott Gilleland second and brother Matt Hamill finishing third. 206 Jr. Gold was next and Mekhi Harshaw won in dominating fashion over Addi Rice and Jayden Stone. Matt Johnson was the big winner in the Champ Buggy division, he dominated the race over Justin Mason and Dallas Henneborn finishing third.

In the Run What Ya Brung category it was Ivan Gumstead with a commanding win over Grant Wayne and Charlie Hester. Steven Blackwelder inherited the lead and the win after leader Chad Bush broke just passed the halfway point of the Mini Mod main event, Bush would come home in second with father, Calvin finishing third. Once again the Hammill brothers were the dominant force in the 206 Medium class with Mark finishing ahead of brother Matt at the end of the 20 lap main event. Brandon Agee finished third

Jeremy Wayne what is the victor in the Stock Appearing main event after LJ McClery broke while leading just before the halfway point. Tim Kuhn would come home second with Cody McCleary rounding out the podium. Predator 425 was the final division of the evening and it was Kenneth Rhyne narrowly squeaking out the win and pulling into the Kelly Stewart agent, Farm Bureau Insurance Victory Lane over Jonathan Hagler. Bubba Long would come home and third.
