Frye starts his own win streak at Salina

By Larry Lowrey Jr.

SALINA, Kan. (May 9) – For the first two races of the season in the M&H Motors IMCA Northern Sport Mod division at Salina Speedway, Austin Carter came away with the victories. The big question Friday night was could he get three in a row?

If so, someone forgot to let Tyler Frye in on it that Carter was supposed to get the hat trick.

From his third row starting spot, Frye wasted little time getting to the front of the pack. At the front he would click off lap after lap while the 11ith starting Carter systematically worked his way up.

Frye was too strong and he had built up enough of a lead that he wasn’t going to give it up, however, and picked up his first local win of the season.

For the second straight week Brian Knoell was standing tall in victory lane after another strong win in the Belleville Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds.

After three weeks of competition in the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stock class there has yet to be a repeat winner. Tony Slothower joined the select group of winners on Friday night. This season Slothower has finished in the top five in all three events.
