B&P Wrecking Night at Oakshade Raceway ended early Saturday as soaking rains came and washed out most of the night’s racing.

An evening that was supposed to feature double features for the Bombers only got two races completed before the skies opened up on the second lap of the Bomber C Main.

In the evening’s first event, the Bomber A Main, Joe Smith was the man to beat grabbing the lead on the first lap after starting on the outside of the front row.

The first yellow flag waved on lap two after Matt Shipley spun in turn two and then retired to the pits.

BJ Gregory’s car suffered mechanical problems and came to a stop in turn four on lap eight to bring out the second and final caution of the race.

Tom Ordway ran second the entire race and could not take advantage of restarting right on the back bumper or race leader Joe Smith after the cautions.

Smith pulled away to win his second Bomber A Main of the year. Ordway held off Jake Rendel for second. Jim Scout and Rich Risner also finished in the top five.

Nick Fenner took control early in the Bomber B Main with Brad Blonde quickly closing in from the second position.

Lap seven featured lots of action. Kevin Hanford got a flat tire and spun into the infield coming off turn four. Just behind him, Eric Potridge lost control and slammed into the barrier surrounding a light pole and brought the red flag as Potridge appeared to be shaken up. He did emerge from his car and walk to the ambulance.

Once racing resumed, Ted Goetz, Jr. moved up from deep in the field to take the lead from Fenner on lap nine.

Goetz went on to pick of the victory over Fenner, Billy Ruff and Brad Blonde. Chris Williams finished fifth.

Racing ceased after only two laps were run of the Bomber C Main with Ian Lewis leading the way. That is where that action will pick up next week.

Rain checks will be honored at any one of the rest of the season’s races at Oakshade Raceway. Saturday, August 20 will be UMP Late Models, Sportsman and Bombers and the completion of the Bomber C Main.
