Funden Takes Home Emotional 90 Minutes of FEAR Win!

Growing up at Evergreen Speedway Seth Funden always watched his dad race and loved watching big races like 90 Minutes of Fear. Before Saturday Night Funden had won many races but the big ones had slipped away until he captured the checkered flag to take home his first Monroe Grocery Outlet 90 Minutes of Fear win in the Outlaw Figure 8 Division.

Funden had to hold off a hard charging field of drivers while navigating a very wet track. Most of the chaos throughout the night happened behind Funden with Jake Repin taking home second place. It was second generation driver Bryant Carlson grabbing his first podium in Outlaw Figure 8 racing in third position.

It was also a great night to have the last name of Cox at Evergreen Speedway with Father Steve Cox and his son Dawson Cox taking home wins in each of their divisions.

It was the biggest field of the year for the Monroe Grocery Outlet Super Stocks with Steve Cox winning in dominating fashion and navigating through the carnage throughout the field. It was consistency that paid off for Brandon Florer by taking home second. Brian Little had a hard fought night but capped it off the podium with a third place finish.

On a normal Saturday night you would see Dawson Cox in the Hornet division but an opportunity came up to race in the Buzz Inn Stinger 8’s and he took full advantage of it. Cox used a borrowed car to hold off a strong battle with Cody Hoopes to take the win. Hoopes would finish second after an early lead. It was Jaime Corbett finishing up in third place.

The Roger Drake show continued in the Les Schwab Street Stocks by capturing his second straight main event win. Darrell Lutsovsky tried to navigate the wet track and catch Drake but fell just short in second place. The night was filled of slipping and sliding for Steve Ptacek as he rounded out the top three.

The WESCO Sprint Cars showed with a great field of cars for the event on Saturday. After qualifying 17 Sprint Cars the racing for them was called off due to track conditions because of the weather.
