Doug Drown picked up the biggest win of his career on Saturday night, May 4 at the Southern Ohio Speedway in Wheelersburg, Ohio, as he won the 18th Annual ‘Southern 100!’ Doug ran fifth in heat race action, but later finished sixth in the dash to earn the outside third row starting spot for the 60-lap main event. During the course of the unsanctioned race, the Wooster, Ohio ace grabbed the point on lap 26 from leader Steve Francis and held the top spot for much of the remainder of the distance. When the dust had settled at SOS, Doug was celebrating a $12,000 triumph for beating R.J. Conley, Mike Marlar, Josh McGuire, and Austin Hubbard to the checkers!
We went to the Southern Ohio Speedway last night and got to see a fast Southern Ohio Speedway, we got there about 4:30 and they was pouring the water to it. I walked across the track about 6:45 to take pictures in hotlaps and the track was still very wet it was so wet that all the drivers had to help run the track
When hotlaps started I could tell the track was going to be fast, Josh McGuire and Todd Robinson both set new track records,
The late model dash was awesome as all the racing was last night McGuire took the lead and didnt look back giving him the pole for the feature.
The late model feature took the green as Mcguire would take the lead as Montgmery and Conley would battle for the 2nd spot. Mcguire led till the white flag came out and Jason Montgmery passed him to win

Eddie Carrier, Jr. came out on top of a great race tonight at the 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky to become the fifth different winner in as many Spring Nationals events!

Jackie Boggs blasted from third to lead the opening two circuits before R.J. Conley gained the point on lap three. Eddie then took his turn up front on lap twenty-two and led the remainder of the distance to claim the $4,000 winner’s check. Seventeenth starting Rod Conley was second, followed by his brother R.J.

What a weekend Michael Hamilton Productions had after trying and trying to decide on weather to go to Jackson County Speedway to watch the 410 sprints or go to Southern Ohio Speedway for the season opener we was able to go to both.
We started out to Jackson County speedway about 1 on Saturday, time we got to Jackson there was all ready 2 sprint cars in the Jackson pits, Only later to have 19 more show up to bring the sprint car total to 21. The sprints flew around Jackson with Trey Gustin setting quick time with a 12.63. We ended up staying for the heats for everything then right after the sprint B we was off to Southern Ohio Speedway. Danny Smith went on to win the sprint feature at Jackson.
We got to 35 on our way to Southern and some friends happen to text us and tell us it was intermission at Southern and the sportmod feature was gettin ready to start at Southern. (Man the sportmod class sure has grow, as Southern had 26 sport mods). I guess there was a lot of cautions in the sportmod feature because the next text I got was sport mod class has reached the time limit at this time I was close enough ti the track. I was able to get to Southern as soon as the late model feature took the green. Jason Montgomery took the lead at the start of the night’s Late Model A-Main. Montgomery and Drown would have a great battle till on lap 14 Drown would spin in turn 4 bringing out a yellow, also under the yellow Montgomery would take his car to the pits. This left the lead to Wheelersburg’s Kevin Wagner. Wagner led the next three laps until he too pulled off the speedway. Daniel Kattine then inherited the lead on the lap 18 restart. Kattine got off to a great restart as the best battle on track was for the second position between Mark Queen and Jason Perry. Kattine would lead the remaining laps to come across the checkered flag for his first career feature win! Mark Queen finished second with Jason Perry third, Jeff Arnold fourth, and Kevin Wagner fifth.
Michael Hamilton Productions went to the 201 Speedway last weekend at saw Zack Dohm dominate.
Late Model qualifying had the #17 of Charleston West Va driver Zach Dohm erasing the Late Model track record of 12.99 set last November by Jackie Boggs as Dohm turned a lap of 12.937. Brandon Fouts was 2nd fast with a lap of 13.104, followed by a lap of 13.115 by the #18 of Michael Wright.
After scoring the heat race win, Dohm would earn the pole of the 25 lap opening night feature with the #13 of Jamie Ferguson sharing the front row with him. The start had Dohm claimed the inside line through one and two, and raced ahead of an early battle for 2nd between Fouts and an inside challenge through the corners by Brandon Fouts. By the 5th lap of the 25 lap feature, Dohm opened up a five car length advantage over Brandon Fouts who faced a challenge to the inside of the turns by Ferguson and the #18 of Michael Wright. Fouts finally cleared Ferguson and set his #81 up to the high side of the turns, while Dohm continued to hold the inside line. Fouts outer lane choice allowed the Kite Ky driver to narrow the advantage of Dohm, but following a caution setting up a Delaware re-start, Dohm changed his line to the higher lane through the turns and found a fast line off the fouth turn, again opened up his lead, holding on to post the first Late Model Feature win with his “Dohm Cycles”, “ T & R Logging”, “A & K Trucking” sponsored Rocket Chassis. Brandon Fouts held on for a solid runner up finish ahead of the #13, “JMC Motersports” entry of Jamie Ferguson.
