Strmiska pulls away to win Enduro 200 at Roseville speedway
Ryan Strmiska captured the West Coast Enduro 200 May Madness by 4.436 seconds over Chris Lancaster on Saturday night at All American Speedway.
Strmiska, Lancaster and third-place finisher Loren Chitwood were the only three cars in the 21-car field to finish on the lead lap. Lancaster also was the runner-up in the first enduro of the season, held April 7.
Strmiska started ninth, and Ron Wills led the first 17 laps. Lancaster set the pace from laps 18-76. Strmiska moved in front on lap 77 and led through lap 100.
Chitwood and Wills took turns in front through lap 107 before Strmiska moved in front for good on lap 108 of the 200-lap grind over a wet, soapy track.
Matt Camp (Street Stock) and Erick Ray (Bomber) won 35-lap main events in a rain makeup for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.
Camp topped an 18-car field and beat Byron Gonzalez to the checkered flag by .084 of a second in a back-and-forth battle. Gonzalez led the first 18 laps, gave way to Camp on lap 19 and regained the lead on lap 20.
Camp wrested the lead again on lap 25, Gonzalez led from laps 26-30, Camp snagged first place on lap 31, Gonzalez led laps 32-34, and Camp took the lead and the victory on the final lap.
Jarred Beddow again was the No. 1 qualifier at 14.895 seconds. Gonzalez and Tim Tate captured heats, and Kevin Owens took the dash.
The Bomber main didn’t pack nearly as much drama, as Ray led wire to wire and scored a .273-of-a-second margin of victory over Beddow and a 16-car field.
Ray also won a heat and the dash. Beddow won the other heat, and David Thompson topped qualifying at 15.811.

Bill McAnally Racing driver Eric Holmes couldn’t catch teenager Dylan Kwasniewski in a green-white-checkered finish in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Pick-N-Pull 150 on Saturday night at Stockton 99 Speedway.
Kwasniewski won the pole with a qualifying lap at 13.735 seconds around the quarter-mile paved oval and led all 155 laps. He took over the series points lead with his first victory this season and the third of his young career.
Holmes finished second, .49 of a second behind, and is fourth in points, 13 behind Kwasniewski and two behind third-place Greg Pursley, the defending series champ.
Jessica Brunelli, a former racer at All American Speedway, finished ninth, and Del Campo High School senior Dylan Hutchison was 11th. BMR driver Cameron Hayley qualified fourth and finished 15th.
