In a world filled with cataclysmic devastation and torment, the Extravaganza Series brings light to all who look forward to a welcoming pastime. The seats will be packed to witness Rick Jackson lead the field to the green in an attempt to win his first event of the season. He's led a league-leading 772 laps without one and is one of the favorites for victory tonight at Chicagoland.

Race Recap


Dan Johnston blows up on the start while Rick and points leader Johnny Reed Foley race side-by-side racing into turn 1. The #44 Crown Royal machine would dominate the first green flag stint before a caution flag on lap 41 re-bunched the pack. Teammate Tony Pizzaro made an audacious three-wide maneuver on the ensuing restart to record the first lead change of the night.


The caution was brought out by a crash between Jimmie Stevens and Steven Spears on the backstretch, with both cars receiving minimal damage. Three laps after the next restart saw Logan Sheets and Cristian Torres crash into the outside wall on the frontstretch. Sheets would finish 20th by the end while the others limped to the finish 26th and worse.


Adam Crapser, Dakota Wilkins, Jonathan Skrabacz and Rob Scarberry all fell out after a devastating accident in turn-2. Crapser's wind was knocked out, though he turned out well after another scary head-on impact. Scott Drake and Tony Pizzaro swapped the lead after Drake stayed out during the yellow. John Battista and Michael Henson did the same for the upcoming green flag run, battling for supremacy before Pizzaro re-took command on lap 65.


Lap 100 saw a horrendous crash starting with contact from Zakk Miller and Tim McDonnell. Dalton Lucas tagged the rear of the Bepis Mustang, pirouetting across the backstretch before Geno Sphere annihilated his quarter panel. Miller flipped twice, miraculously continuing on for 14 more laps before the engine finally quit. Sphere's day ended immediately, finishing 36th. 


Pizzaro relinquished the lead to Dave Miller and John Tharp during pit stops. Miller led through lap 120 before a three-wide bonzai move by John Tharp sent the #14 in control of the pack. Despite hard-charging efforts by Pizzaro and Alex Crapser to re-take the lead, eventually Tharp, Ryan Heuser and Bill Werkheiser towed their line away from the rest of the field through the halfway point. 


Alan Nesfeder suffered an unfortunate night after fighting inside the top-3 early in the go. A backstretch crash between he and Zach Michael sent both drivers into a dangerous frenzy across the asphalt. Michael would limp to 34th place after a myriad of engine trouble, dropping to 7th in the standings. On lap 180, Nesfeder and Dave Miller wrecked on the frontstretch, destroying the rear of the #78 machine. Miller suffered front end damage and finished the night in 25th place. Nesfeder hobbled to 28th.


Ryan Heuser led the following restart mired behind Craig Lee and Matthew Dominique, who were both trapped multiple laps down after their short-pitting strategy went awry. Bill Werkheiser endured several attempts at passing the Rocket Man before succeeding on lap 204. Heuser would nab it back two laps later just before the next caution flag.


Bill's pit crew was able to grant their driver the lead with a miraculous pit stop. Heuser and Werkheiser were side-by-side for half of the subsequent 37 laps before an open lane on the inside of lapped traffic granted Heuser the advantage. He would maintain a two car-length leverage coming to ten laps to go.


The top two in points both suffered severe devastation towards the end of the event. Points leader Johnny Reed Foley and Matt Raboin went for a spin with 62 laps to go. Miraculously, Foley was able to power his way through the field and finish 11th despite minor damage to the right side. Raboin would finish 17th. Tony Pizzaro was able to stalemate Foley atop the points while cruising along in 7th late. Unfortunately, Alex Crapser blew a tire directly in front and the Fenway Frank machine slammed into him, darting his Fusion into the outside wall. Both drivers would drop outside of the top-20 after excellent top-10 runs. This would also bring the event to a close with two laps remaining.
