Lynchs And Company Dodge COVID, Rain To Get Laps In

Posted

It was a late start to the season due to COVID-19 restrictions, but Lynch Motorsports is making up for lost time in June.

The Lynchs opened up the season on Friday, June 12, with Nathan and Evan running at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown.

Nathan Lynch would run 10th in the fourth heat of the A Modified division, which drew 44 competitors to the quarter mile track. He would run in one of the two consolation races, finishing tenth overall in the 14-car field.

Evan Lynch would compete in the B Modified division, which drew 28 competitors. After finishing seventh in the fourth heat, Lynch would take eighth overall in the consolation race.

Anton Loskot of Nokomis would also compete at Brownstown, finishing 14th in the Street Stock feature after placing sixth in his preliminary heat, and placing sixth in his heat in the B Modified division.

All three Lynch brothers were at Macon Speedway for that track’s 75th season opener on June 13. Racing in the Pro Late Model division, Brady Lynch had the fourth fastest qualifying lap with a time of 11.579 in the quarter mile. He would go on to finish fourth in his heat and ninth in the feature.

In the UMP Modified class, Nathan Lynch was fifth in his qualifying group with a time of 12.455 and fifth in the third preliminary heat. In the feature, he suffered from a broken part and did not finish the race.

Racing in the B Modified class, Evan Lynch had a great preliminary heat, taking second in heat one. In the feature, he would finish tenth overall in the 19-car field.

Anton Loskot and Kevin Rench of Hillsboro also raced in the B Modified division, with Rench running third in his heat race, before placing 16th in the feature, and Loskot placing seventh in his heat race.

The Lynchs, along with Rench and Justin Reynolds of Hillsboro, were in Macon on June 20, but Mother Nature had other plans as two rain showers forced the cancellation of the race.

Nathan Lynch was back on the track on Friday, June 26, competing in the Summit Modified Nationals at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City. Lynch would take fourth in his heat, then was as high as tenth in the feature, after starting 18th, before finishing 14th overall.

Nathan and Evan Lynch and Justin Reynolds were set to run at Fayette County Speedway the following night, but wet weather canceled the action on June 27, just before the feature races.

RC Racing

The smaller version of the 3x Hillsboro Hustler raced on Friday, June 26, as Jason Williamson competed in the B Modified division at Cottage Hills RC Raceway.

In his first race since March, Williamson finished third in the first round of heat races, then second in his next race. Starting fourth in the A Main, Williamson was up near the front before a couple wrecks ended his night early.
