Sibila Wins First Career Late Model Feature
July 28, 2001
Sibila Wins First Career Late Model FeatureDespite the 80% chance of precipitation in the weather forecast, dry and cool conditions made for an exciting night of racing action this past Saturday, July 28, at Midvale Speedway. 140 cars filled the pits in the Late Model, Modified, Detroit Iron, Pure Stock, and Compact divisions.

An 18-car field of Smokers Paradise Late Models competed in the 25-lap feature event. A father and son combo of Paul and Tim Sibila made up the first row, for yet another time this season. Once the green flew, everything went well until P. Sibila spun on the backstretch in front of oncoming traffic. Everyone did an excellent job of missing him, setting up a complete restart. On the second try, T. Sibila took the lead, while Paul dropped back to second. While trying to hold that runner-up spot on lap 10, Bear Schwartz and Don Harvey, Jr., were sandwiching him, three wide. Schwartz spun into the infield in turn two, and Sibila and Schwartz were charged with the caution. For the restart, this moved Harvey into second with Bob Sibila going to third. With 13 laps in, caution flew again for P. Sibila as he spun in turn two. That negated a three wide battle for the lead. Back to green action, and the top three cars of T. Sibila, Harvey, and B. Sibila running bumper-to-bumper. With 23 laps complete, Harvey and T. Sibila touched in turn two. To avoid extra contact, Harvey moved to the outside lane, and this created one the most exciting last laps, this season. At the completion of lap 24, the top two cars were side-by-side, with the third place car of B. Sibila, looking for his first win of the year, in third. The three cars ran this way for the final pace, and at the line, it was Tim Sibila, in the Coca Cola/Sibila Race Engineering #49, picking up his first career Late Model feature win over Harvey, and his uncle, Bob Sibila. Farmer Smith and Tom Garbrandt completed the top five, while Kenny Carroll, Mike Miller, Russ Moore, Jr., Kenny Stevens, and Duane Dunn rounded out the top ten. P. Sibila and Miller won the heats.

The third time was a charm when it came to starting the Tolloti Pipe Modified 20-lapper. On the first start, Jim McCune spun to the infield. On the second try, polesitter, George Bowers looped it, but on the third complete restart, Bowers jumped into the lead, while his son, Mike Bowers, who started on the outside of him, fell back. With three laps in, G. Bowers and John Wilson made contact, while going for the lead, and were both sent to the rear. This gave the lead to McCune, with Jeff Smith and Glen Jewell in tow. After the restart, Jewell moved under Smith and McCune to take the lead, and eventually, his eighth feature win of the season. Following the Hydraulic Parts Store/Texas Roadhouse #24 across the stripe were Dusty Woodie, Smith, Mark Enos, and Wilson. McCune, G. Bowers, Mike Buchanan, Butch Erickson, and Jeff Walker completed the top ten. Smith won the heat, while Woodie was the top qualifier.

As always, the 20-lap Tusco Net Detroit Iron feature event, turned out to be a good one. Polesitter, Roger Butler, took the lead and held onto it for the first 8 laps, until he slid sideways in turn four and Tim Gowins took the top spot. The race’s first caution flew shortly after, which lined Bill Aubihl and Joe Linard up right behind Gowins. Over the last 10 laps, Linard would move into second and pressure Gowins in the outside lane until the finish, but Gowins crossed the line first at the checkered flag. However, in a post race inspection, the motor was found to have an illegal component and the win was handed to Linard. Following the Uncle Primo’s/New Image Homes #82 in the official rundown were Kevin McClintock, Aubihl, Todd Miller, and Butler. Jimmy Orr, Tim Skinner, Dan Gasser, Don Rufener, Jr., and Tammy Randolph completed the top ten. Doug McMillen, Gasser, and Paul Murray won the heats, while Tim Postel claimed the last chance race. McClintock was the top qualifier, while setting a new track record.

In the 15-lap Papa John’s Pure Stock feature, Paul Parson set the tone early on. However, Brian Oliver, coming from his outside third row starting spot, took the lead and went on to win his first Pure Stock feature event. Following the Tappan R.V./Used Tire Co. #48 were Don Rufener, Jr., Bryan Aubihl, Parson, and John Leasure. Barney Gerber, Brian Wood, Jim Shaw, Anthony Bissett, and Mike Martin completed the top ten. Vic Paul, Teddy Oliver, and Gerber won the heats, while Martin set fast time in qualifications.

Six Canton Auto Salvage Compact features were held, as the previous week’s were postponed. In the fast make-up feature, Chuck Elkins took the victory. Following him to the line were Terry Colletti, Phil Veno, Cody Kahler, and Jason Shaw. In the second make-up feature, Matt Wallick took the victory, while Mike Phillips, Jimbo Roup, Jason Anthony, and Justin Courtney rounded out the top five. The third feature was won by Gary Gibson, with Dale Beatty, Gary Murray, Bill Peckins, and Dan Gray finishing in the top five.

While competing for the lead in the first regular Compact feature, Greg Grove and Jason Shaw were trading some paint. While doing so, Terry Colletti said “see you later” as he went three-wide and on to his first feature win of the year. Lennie Orr, Jason Shaw, Rick Elkins, Jr., and Jim Poole completed the top five.

Jason Anthony held off Jimbo Roup at the finish line, in the second Compact feature. Bubba Smith, Rich Fox, and Chad Squires rounded out the top five.

Gary Gibson had a clean sweep of the slow features on the night, as he also won the regularly scheduled one. Larry Riggle, Dale Beatty, Henry Roup, and Tom Craw finished out the top five.

This coming Saturday, August 4, Midvale Speedway will have their regular five divisions + the Dale’s Heating and Cooling Figure 8’s. Qualifying will start at 4, while racing will begin at 6:30 sharp. Don’t forget, the Main Event Racing Series Super Late Models will return Saturday, August 11, with the Modifieds, Detroit Irons, Pure Stocks, and Compacts.
