Cline Dominates Mountain Creek Run

SALISBURY, N.C. — Trevor Cline dominated Sunday’s thirty lap Summer Sizzler presented by Randy Marion Automotive at Mountain Creek Speedway.

Thirty-two cars signed in the gate giving this event the largest car count at the speedway this year. Cline, who was near the top of the boards all day, qualified second, finished second in his heat race and started on the pole to lead the A-main wire to wire for the $1,000 to win event. 

“I felt like if I didn’t make as many mistakes and if we held on we’d be OK,” said Cline. “The top got rougher and rougher and the curb got gnarlier, I never saw anybody on the bottom so I figured I would be okay. (The track) is getting good and they’re running it right, I hope to come here more and have more fun.”

Gavan Boschele finished second but just didn’t have enough for Cline at the finish

Neal Allison is the winningest driver in 600 micros at Mountain Creek, he went quick time in qualifying, started ninth and managed a podium finish.

Maverick Bradshaw led the majority of the the Cadet A-main until he was passed with two laps to go by Kylea Beattie. Beattie would cross the line first but was later disqualified in post-race inspection.

The win was awarded to Bradshaw with Tatum Burnett and Calloway Harpe completing the podium. Brexton Busch picked up another win in the Beginner Box Stock division. Busch won his heat race, started on the pole and led every lap to win the caution filled race over Alex Slade and Carson Mckee. 

The comeback story of the day was Brody Snider whose Box Stock qualifying time was disallowed due to a rules infraction. Snyder had to start in the rear of the heat race in seventh and moved up to second at the checkered. Snyder then started fourth in the Box Stock A-main and methodically picked his way to front and drove away from the field. Karter Beattie would finish second, Chase DeMarco completed the top three.

C.J. Sweatt continued his dominating fashion in the Yamaha 450 Outlaws winning back-to- back races.
