The racing action sure didn’t disappoint last night as the track, racers, and fans would beat mother nature to squeak another week of racing into the books. The track also had a special treat last night with a special appearance by NASCAR xFinity Driver Spencer Boyd and his crew. Even with a lighter than normal kart count of forty-four entries, the racers put on exciting wheel to wheel action in each of the nine class for the eager fans of Snydersville Raceway. Here are the results from this Friday.
Snydersville Veteran Jason Wolfe dominated the Briggs Stock Light Money Race but not without pressure from the young gun Alex Kolonics looking to continue his money race winning streak. The two would battle it out with Wolfe getting constant pressure from Kolonics and after multiple attempts to get the lead, it wouldn’t be enough to get by and Jason Wolfe pocketed the $150 and added another win to his book. Alex Kolonics came home in a close second place, Bobby Smith rounded out the podium in third, and Brandon Cochran finished in fourth. DNS- Justin Morgan, Paul Morgan Jr.
Mason Jenkin took home the win in the Kid Karts.
The Jr. Sportsman Champs put on an exciting wheel to wheel race as the front runners Cadence Freeman and Griffin Hendershot swapped it back and fourth for the top spot but as the laps ticked away, Cadence Freeman had the upper hand and took the lead. She lead the rest of the 15-lap Feature to take home another feature win. Griffin Hendershot took home second and Tre Mammana rounded out the field in third.

The AllStar Slingshots went door to door in their 20-lap feature as the top three swapped it back and fourth for the top spot.
