Drake wins at Shady Bowl

DEGRAFF — Xenia driver Scott Drake took charge at the drop of the green flag in the Dave Nagel Excavating Late Models feature event May 18 at Shady Bowl Speedway and won the season opening event. Drake set a torrid pace leading all the way to take the checker, Tyler Mahaffey ran a close second followed by Kenny George Jr., Mike Holland and Kyle Jones. The dash win went to Don Mahaffey Jr. with Buddy Townsend and Caleb Reschar taking heat wins.

It took five attempts for Shady Bowl to get in its first full racing program Saturday. Rain had washed out four earlier attempts. Saturday’s event wasn’t rain free, either. A shower halted the action in time trials. Starting lineups were set by practice times.

This Saturday May 24 will be Military Night with all retired and active military members admitted free with proper ID. Racing will begin at 7 p.m.
