By Beacon Staff

Tyler Volkman began last Saturday’s racing action with a trophy dash win in the Hornet Division and capped his night with the main event victory at

Dennis Galloway and Volkman both took the checkers in the B and A heat races of the Hornet Division, respectively.

The Montana Raceway Park Bandoleros took to the track for their first race of the season. This class is designed for 8 to 14 year olds and is nationally sanctioned by INEX/US Legend Cars International and is separated into two divisions, Young Guns and Bandits. Isaiah Sickler and Trystian Nelson ran their first laps around the high banks on Saturday. Veteran drivers and brothers, Brock and Bryce Denney, both scored hat-tricks in the trophy dash, heat race and main event for each of their divisions. Brock Denney’s sweep puts him in first place of the overall Bandolero point’s series.

The CHS Legend division also got their season rolling Saturday. Drivers were eager to get their early model replica Ford and Chevy coupes and sedans on the track. Danny Meier and Trevor Corpron each scored trophy dash wins. Meier edged Dalton Halden for another win in the heat race. In the main event Meier tried to make a clean sweep of the night, but was unable to catch veteran Legend driver Tyler Corpron. Corpron motored to his first win of the season in the Legends. Halden comes out of the Legend opener first in points.

In the second event of the season for the Lucas Oil Super Stocks, Bruce Stinger and Tyler Corpron each gained a trophy dash win. Stinger and Tylor Schweigert took the B and A heat races, respectively. Last week Brandon Sickler came up short, but this Saturday was different. He held off a challenging Stinger to capture his first main event win of the season. Sickler’s win puts him in the first place position in the Lucas Oil point series.
