Johnny Morrison Survives Super Stock Chaos for Victory at Sunset Speedway

After contact occurred ahead of him, Johnny Morrison got a good restart to capture the victory in the Super Stock feature at Sunset Speedway on Saturday afternoon.

The first heat did not start off well, with Jason Parker pulling off before the green flag while Gerrit Tiemersma stalled on the second lap. Johnny Morrison picked up the win ahead of Todd Davenport, Dan Archibald, Matt McGrath, Lane Zardo, and Connor Maltese.

Gerrit Tiemermsa won the second qualifier in front of Parker, Archibald, Zardo, McGrath, Morrison, and Maltese.

Dan Archibald took advantage of the pole position in the feature to grab the early advantage, with Johnny Morrison and Todd Davenport side-by-side for second ahead of Lane Zardo, as Gerrit Tiemersma and Jason Parker battled. Davenport moved into second, with Zardo following him through.

Zardo looked to get by Davenport on Lap 3 for second, but was thrown a block instead. His effort would be awarded a lap later, with Tiemersma getting by Morrison for fourth. Tiemersma then challenged Davenport for third, only to be served a pinch in return. Though it was same song and dance once again, with Tiemersma able to complete the pass a couple laps later.

At the front of the field, Zardo would get alongside Archibald for the top spot, with the pair running side-by-side for five laps before Zardo grabbed the advantage. It wouldn’t last long, with a bump being given from Archibald to Zardo, resulting in Archibald back to the top spot ahead of Zardo and Tiemersma.

With 20 of 40 laps in the books, Archibald held serve over Zardo, Tiemersma and Davenport, as Morrison and Jason Parker battled for fifth. Morrison would get the spot a lap later, as the battle for the lead heated up.

Zardo would look to make the move underneath Archibald, grabbing the spot as Tiemersma joined the battle. Tiemersma and Archibald made contact going into turn one, with Archibald tagging Zardo in the process to send him around for the spin on Lap 28. All three drivers were sent to the back, handing the front row to Davenport and Morrison.

Morrison got a good restart to take control ahead of Davenport, with Archibald and Zardo taking Matt McGrath three-wide for third. Zardo would back out, allowing Archibald to take the spot ahead of McGrath, Maltese, Zardo and Tiemersma.

Archibald would then track down Davenport, getting alongside and taking the runner-up spot. Davenport tried to crossover in an effort to get it back, but was unsuccessful. Tiemersma would then pull off a lap later, done for the event.
