After a rain out on April 24, Hillsboro’s pro-mod squad was finally able to get back on the track on Saturday, May 1, at Macon Speedway.
Two cars from the Lynch Motorsports stable, the 14N of Nathan Lynch and the 14B of Brady Lynch, made the trip, along with the 3x of Justin Reynolds and the 116 of Kevin Rench.
Three of the four would be in the same heat race as Brady Lynch finished second in the qualifier, followed by Reynolds in fourth and Rench in fifth. Nathan Lynch would be in a separate heat and worked his way up from the sixth starting spot into third.
That would put the 14 N in the fifth starting spot for the feature, with the 14B behind him in seventh and Reynolds and Rench lining up at 11th and 14th.
Nathan Lynch would be the top finisher as he wound up sixth overall, while Justin Reynolds was two spots behind him in eighth after climbing the three spots from the start, the most of any racer in the 15-lap feature.
Kevin Rench would move up two spots to finish in 12th, while front end damage resulted in a rough night for Brady Lynch, who finished 15th.
In addition to the Hillsboro racers, Bryan Leach of Harvel also competed at Macon, running in the modified class. Leach would finish second in his heat and start on the front row for the feature, where he would go on to score a top five with a fifth place finish.
Rain washed out the May 8 event as well, but hopes are high that racing will continue on May 15, which will be 95Q Armed Forces Night in Macon, with free admission for active and retired military.
