Ryan Beechler driving the #6 sprinter won the SST A-Main event Saturday night July 30 at Kennedale Speedway Park. Beechler started in the sixth spot and made his pass for the lead on lap seven after the restart caused by an incident between the #77 of Keith Sturgeon and #59 of Kenny Venable. Jeff Emerson in #35, on his first night racing with the SST series, was awarded a second place finish after the #99 of Mike Herring was disqualified at the scales. Herring’s DQ also moved Rodney Henderson in #67 to third. The next scheduled event for the SST is Saturday August 13 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
