Photo by Greg Knight American Valley Speedway results Judi Madden Special to Feather Publishing Who won Saturday night's race at the American Valley Speedway in Quincy? Maybe the first question ought to asked.., from whose perspective? The pit back gate keeper perspective? Really? You are asking the one person who only knows who won or didn't based upon computer sheets and hand counts by the two exceptional ladies in the 000000#2oo8 $16 $26 ,,,#1992 s25 VIN #381359 VIN #i83787 VIN #621 i32 s s22 " s19 STK #1990  STK #2010 STK #1993 VIN #161751 VIN #294337 VIN #536997 sTK #2022 S  VIN #443126 ,00,#1662 S12 VIN #356949 ,00,#2o2o s16 ,00,#2o19 s18 VIN #717319 VIN #073118 I 0000,#1699 s, s23 VIN #C69504 VIN #270949 STK#1930 s21 0000,#19o2 s28 VIN #A89246 VIN #115816 tower who are watching firsthand, counting and keeping track of all 15 cars in the' IMCA Modified Main. While circling the 3/8 oval clay track, winner Bill Pearson from Reno won it in the 7N car with a single-lap track time of 20.49. He was followed by Jeff Olschowka, of Quincy, in the No. 121 and his best time on the track was 20.461 seconds, just 0.251 seconds slower than Pearson's best time. The driver taking third, Nevin Kennemore in the 2K car from Susanville, logged his best time on the track and was recorded in one lap with a time of 20.204. According to Rance Lewis, the track announcer, Kennemore ran first for quite a few laps. Pearson, who is a consistent and mature driver in Quincy, however, worked his way through the pack avoiding serious contact with other cars and won another IMCA Main check from the speedway, another IMCA feature winner hat, jacket patch, stickers for his car and accolades from his racing family. If speed alone were the determining factor on this challenging track then Riley Simmons (No. 21r) from Susanville would have been declared winner with the fastest lap time: 20.085, out of a field of 15. However, fast isn't always what wins here in Quincy. Simmons, a talented driver at 19, has national sponsors and a devoted following of fans. He only completed 10 laps during the race, though. John Papenhausen, a longtime supporter of racing from Greenville at the Mohawk Trading Co., called m wth sponsorship money on a "dash for cash" that was won by Kennemore in the Modified class, Joe BlackweU (No. 121) in the Hobby Stock class and Kyle BeUi in the No. 56 Mini Stock. There were only four cars racing in the Mini Stocks and the winner at the checkered flag was Belli. Three drivers this year are new to Mini Stocks: Belli from Loyalton, Gibson from Greenville and Jozay Hartman (No. 17) from Reno. Even at 18, Hartman is not really new to racing she was a strong competitor in the go-kart class and she is sponsored by her grandfather, Larry Whitebird, in the Mini 97 who arranges to tow both cars from Susanville so that she can dash from Reno to race. Hobby Stocks had a new driver behind the steering wheel of car No. 33 as Hever Lopez drove it and did a great job first time in the car as both he and partner Jared Morris had a coin toss to decide who gets to drive. Lopez finished first, with Lance Bain second in the No. 43 car; Skeeter Bethel solved the transmission problems in his car No. 40 for the third position, while Joe Blackwell lost his position in the pack with a flat tire but took fourth in his No. 121. Taylorsville's Guido Armanino ran in car No. 18 and came in fifth. The next race is Saturday, June 6, starting at 7 p.m. Come early for the fun and entertainment at the annual County Picnic.
