Washington / Yakima 2017 V-8 Stock Truck Eyewitness Report (10.01.2017)
« Last post by Thunderbyrd316 on October 01, 2017, 06:40:20 PM »
   The 2017 Pacific Northwest Demolition Derby season wrapped up with one last run for the Full Size Stock Pickups and one final go round with the Compact Hornet cars at State Fair Raceway.Park at the State Fairgrounds in Yakima.

   7 Hornet cars survived the previous evening and all made it into Hornet Heat 1. Michael Keenan jumped out to a big lead right away in his super quick gold #69 Escort but later got caught behind the #41 Chevrolet Celebrity of Emmit Hottendorf who had fallen a lap down. This allowed the red #99 toyota Camry of Kyle Sisk to close on Keenan. Sisk was then able to get Keenan crossed up and took the lead. Then both cars left the track as Keenan was attempting to retake the lead on the back straight on the last lap. Keenan managed to get back on the track but Sisk was not as fortunate which allowed Keenan to claim yet another win for Ford. 

   6 Hornet cars were able to return for Hornet Heat 2, this time run in the clockwise direction. Once again Keenan jumped out front but this time was overtaken on the first lap by Quinton Douglas' #5-0 Nissan. Both cars quickly caught Robert Patton's battered #64 red, white and blue Escort due to Patton sitting at the start line for an extended period. Douglas and Keenan battled ferociously for the lead which Douglas briefly took before both crashed on the back straight. Keenan was able to regain the lead and the victory making 2 big wins for Ford today.

   After the second Hornet Heat the Best Appearing Contest was held for the V-8 Stock Trucks. Local driver Brian Mosier was a crowd favorite with his shiny black #61 Chevrolet Suburban but Josh Levine's black and red brick #88 Chevrolet was certainly worthy of an honorable mention. In the end Mosier was awarded the trophy.

   All 7 cars managed to make it back for the start of the Hornet Feature but most, sadly, did not last very long after a grueling weekend of beating and banging. Once again Keenan jumped out to an early lead but then lost it again to Douglas. Then Keenan popped his right front tire making cornering to the left pretty much impossible. Keenan quickly exited the track when he saw continuing was pointless. Then Douglas had a tire go down and lost the lead to Patton's #64 Escort, (the same car which Blair Shoemaker so violently ran over with his Datsun B-210 last year), which at that point was one of only 3 cars still running. Patton went on to take the victory and claim yet another win for Ford on this day.

   Now the time had come for the very last Destruction Derby Finale of the 2017 Pacific Northwest Derby season before the long, cold, dark Winter sets in.

   9 Full Size Stock Pickups made their way to the arena floor. The countdown commenced. When the green flag waved the 9 fearless drivers attacked each other with reckless abandon. Each collision seemingly more brutal than the last. Trucks buckled and twisted and contorted under the strain of the repeated blows.

   Blair Shoemaker made an attempt at the Volkswagen "Football" and almost backed over the top of it as he flipped it nearly on it's side. Shoemaker pulled forward and returned to solid ground. Later, after a couple more attempts, Shoemaker was able to score a "Touchdown' and claim the $200 cash bonus.

   Then Cody Brandner did a most impressive job of getting his #75 Chevrolet unstuck after getting pinned near the Front stretch wall.

   At the end it came down to Josh Levine's #88 Chevrolet and Brian Mosier's #61 Suburban. Levine blasted Mosier and nearly flipped him but Mosier escaped. Then a short time later Levine managed to almost flip him again, this time spinning Mosier nearly around in a circle before finally flipping Mosier all the way onto his side to the roar of applause from the crowd. Not only did Levine take the win but also was awarded the "Mad Dog" Most Aggressive Driver Award.
