When the sun goes down, the action heats up at the fastest quarter mile on dirt as the Mini Stocks headlined the night for two 31 lap features in memory of “Fluffy” Steve McMurray along with Andrew Buff and Beau Ballard continuing their hot streaks to start the season.
 
For the DIRTcar Mini Stock 31 lap “Fluffy” Memorial Dual Cam portion of the event, Josh Kane and Pat McSpirit led the field to green. Kane took the lead but the car on the move was the 43 of Slappy White. In one lap he gained nearly ten spots. A caution would come out as the 24 of Samrov slowed in turn four. Racing resumed but the yellow came out just two laps later as Gina Voris got sideways going into turn one and that left Ariana Shults nowhere to go. Once things got back going, the T28 of Mike Travis took the lead from Josh Kane. Kane would end up bowing out soon after with a fuel line issue. From there, Travis took off and went uncontested to win the dual cam portion of the event. Second would go to Jeff DeGroat. Slappy White would come home third while Jacob Fountain and Josh Samrov rounded out the top five.
 
For the DIRTcar Mini Stock 31 lap “Fluffy” Memorial Single Cam portion of the event, Kaleb Shepard and Jacob MacDonald led the single cam field to green. Shepard didn’t take long as he assumed the lead out of turn two. A lap two yellow crunched everyone back up and this time, the 3 of rob Lanfear made his presence known as he was right on Shepard's bumper. However, he’d never get a chance to take the lead as Shepard ran 31 flawless laps en route to the win. Lanfear would have to settle for second while Dale VanAllen, Wayne Russell Jr and Jacob MacDonald completed the top five.
 
For the Red Chair DIRTcar 602 Crate Sportsmans, it was Ryan Heath & Garrett Poland leading the field to green. Heath took the early race lead but it wasn’t long before he had company as the b24 of Brendan Gibbons and Andrew Buff were bearing down on the Massachusetts driver. Buff was able to maneuver his way around Heath for the top spot as the field came to complete lap 13. From there, Buff checked out as he cruised to his second win on the season at the ridge. Garrett Poland managed to take back the runner up spot in the closing laps while Cody Ochs, Ryan Heath and Brendan Gibbons completed the top five.
 
Buck Gasner sat on the pole for the Yurkewecz Auto Crushers DIRTcar ProStock feature. However, the driver on the outside wouldn’t let him lead the pack for long as Jay Fitzgerald powered his way to the top spot. But just as Fitzgerald appeared to get into a rhythm, the 25y of Ken Griffin charged up to Fitzgeralds back bumper. Griffin took the lead around lap five and it appeared that the top spot was cursed early on as the 15 of Beau Ballard was pressuring Griffin just as Griffin got into a rhythm. A lap eight caution jumbled the field back up and Ballard got a nearly perfect restart and used his momentum out of turn two to take the lead. However, he wouldn’t get to pull away because on lap 11, Ken Griffin appeared to get loose off of turn two and that left Scott Towslee and Buck Gasner nowhere to go. Ballard once again got a good restart and no one could challenge him from there as he went on to continue his hot streak and pick up win number three at the ridge. Jim Normoyle made the most of his first trip to the ridge as he came home second. Andy Graves, Luke Horning and Don Collins rounded out the top five.
 
It was a family affair on the front row as brothers Jason and Josh led the street stock field to green. However, Adam Tranka crashed that party as on lap three, he took the lead away from Jason Samrov. Tranka appeared to have the lead in hand until a lap nine caution for the 99 of Kenny Allen who spun at the exit of turn four. By that point, the 91 of Matt Mosher had made his way up to Tranka’s outside. They’d battle for a lap or so but a caution came out for a car at the bottom of turn two. At the same time, Tranka had a tire going flat and would be forced to give up the lead. That handed Mosher the lead and he led the remaining 5 laps as he picked up win number two at the ridge. Jason Samrov came home second meanwhile Jason Barrett finished third, Joe Wilson finished fourth and Adam Tranka rebounded to round out the top five.
 
Carter Gibbons and James Hinman Jr led the field to green in the limited sportsmans. Gibbons took the top spot and it wasn’t long before Zach Buff began to charge through the field and possibly start off the season four for four.. However, just past the 1/4 mark of the race, Buff noticeably began having steering issues and was forced to drop out. However, it was the 07 of Taylor Wason who began making noise as he pressured the 427 of Gibbons and eventually took away the lead on Lap 13. A lap 18 yellow set up a green-white-checkered finish but Wason wouldn’t be denied as he took home his first career win in limited sportsman competition at Glen Ridge. Gibbons came home second while “Bam Bam” Brock Pinkerous, Luke Horning and Kyle Dingman completed the top five.
 
Danny Ballard would take home back to back wins as he won the all star slingshot feature. Nick Auspelmyer came home second while Tavien Blowers, Adam Fusco and Jim Pollard rounded out the top five.
 
Lucas Duncan took home the win in the Junior Slingshots to make it two in a row. Josh Landers finished in the runner up position while Corky Warner, Hayden Ackerknecht and Cole Conrad rounded out the top five.

The biggest night in the history of the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park undoubtedly took place way back on June 25th of 2010. Track records were broken on the dirt, the pits and in the bleachers! The ‘Ridge’ promoters have inked a deal that will bring the famous Empire Super Sprints back to the Fastest ¼ Mile on Dirt in 2021!
 
Lance Young picked up the win in the inaugural event back in 2010 over Jessica Zemken Friesen, NASCAR cup champion Tony Stewart, Bobby Varin and the ‘Cobra’ Chuck Hebing. Stewart set the fastest lap in any car that night as well.
 
The group returned in 2011 with Bobby Varin, the track’s modified wins leader, picked up the E.S.S. win over Hebing (who set the fastest lap ever recorded at the track in an Empire Super Sprint), Kevin Ward, Cory Sparks and Racin’ Jason Barney. Varin also won the modified feature that night!
 
This year on August 8th, 2021 the winged warriors make their return to the Montgomery County racetrack for what will be a furious battle on the hill! To be part of this event, or others at the Ridge, feel free to message us today and join our family of sponsors and supporters!
