Sixty-one race teams made their way to Lakeside Speedway on Christy’s Tasty Queen Night at the Races Friday for another week of ‘Racing on the River’s Edge’ and the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series. 

By the end of the night, Nic Bidinger prevailed in a hard-fought battle over Tyler Hibner to claim the A-Mod victory while Luke Nieman captured the B-Mod finale. Jaylen Wettengel enjoyed top honors in the Stock Car main with Spencer Reiff earning the Pure Stock win as Michael Taylor III headlined E-Mod action. During the night’s program, drivers competed in 10 preliminary heat races and five main events. 

A-Mod Results (10 Cars)

For the 15-lap A-Mod main event, Tyler Hibner and Tim Karrick took front row starting honors. However, it did not take long for Nic Bidinger to advance forward from his fourth starting position. As the race progressed, Hibner and Bidinger raced hard for the win with changes of position, but in a race that took just over seven minutes, it was Bidinger who prevailed over second place Hibner for his fourth win in seven events. The win boosted Bidinger’s lead to 63 markers over Randal Schiffelbein, Jr., who finished third.
