St. Ours, Anderson, Larsen and Kiemele take home wins at LVMS' Night of Fire!
Ian Anderson's return to The Bullring was a successful one, as the college student picked up his 30th career win by taking the USLCI Thunder Cars 20-lap feature. The two-time track champion was happy to get back at the track and knock the rust off on the special night.
"I don't know if anyone noticed, but I felt really, really rusty," Anderson said. "I haven't had that much time to race, sadly, and this actually might be one of my last races. The start was a little bit of a mess, but overall we negotiated it all pretty well."
Donny St. Ours exchanged the race lead with Bronson Butcher in the closing laps before taking the checkered flag .088 of a second ahead of Tyler Fabozzi in the USLCI Legends 25-lap race. It was his first Bullring win since April 2009.
"To win a race like this on a night like this and see everybody out here, it was awesome," St. Ours said. "I saw those guys in the mirror coming pretty hard there those last few laps, and it was crazy. I think they started racing hard behind me, and that gave me enough of a gap to get out there and take the win."
In the USLCI Bandolero Bandits division, Cody Kiemele won his third race of the season, while Camden Larsen joined his father in the Winner's Circle by earning his fifth USLCI Bandolero Outlaws victory in the last six races.
NEXT RACE: After a seven-week break to avoid the summer heat wave, action returns to The Bullring for Back to School Night on Saturday, Aug. 26. All area students, teachers and school personnel will be admitted free with their school IDs on the special evening.
