Linda’s Speedway was filled with fans anticipating the first Demolition Derby at the speedway in over 15 years on Saturday night.
The Jonestown Derby was added to the schedule when Tim Showers and Matt Balmer were unable to hold their scheduled derby at the Lebanon Fairgrounds due to the virus shutdown. The speedway was opened to over 50 derby cars as the impromptu event was held on the infield of the race track.
The youth class started off the night with Brady Morgan taking the win. Hunter Mitchell was second and Mason Stacey was third.
John Frazier was the Van/Suv winner. Logan Bretz and David Conrad were the last vehicles running at the end.
Brett Burger took the checkered flag in V6 class with Alex Keaton and Cheyenne Burger the top three.
The small cars went with 19 cars into the square. Cody Keener was the last car running at the end over Charlene Brandt and Daryl Hackman Jr.
In the 80’s wire car 167 driven by Nick Kreiser was the last man standing. Bryan Heagy was second and “Miss Psycho” Kylee Muckel was third.
David Daub closed out the night with a win in the Trucks. Andy Arnold was the runner up and Chris Medley were podium finishers.
Linda’s Speedway wants to thank all the fans, drivers, and crews for taking part in the event. Also, to the numerous volunteers that donated their time to help clean up the cars after each run and made the event run off in a timely manner.
Also, a thank you to all of the sponsors and supporters of the event including Boger Concrete Inc of Jonestown, Tim Showers, Daubs Welding, Dustin Pietrak, Kevin Hostetter, Christine Bashore Agribusiness Insurance, and Nathan Dove Lawn and Landscaping.
