Hillsboro Racers Close Out Season At Macon


As the calendar began to turn from September to October, Macon Speedway began to wrap things up for the 2020 season. The 75-year-old legend still had two weeks of racing in September though and several Montgomery County racers were there to help them close things out.

On Sept. 19, Kevin Rench, Justin Reynolds and Evan Lynch would run in the Pro-Mod class, with varying degrees of success. Reynolds and Rench would both take fourth in their respective qualifying heats, while Lynch ran into trouble and did not finish his heat.

While Lynch wasn’t able to start in the feature, Rench and Reynolds would both finish in the top ten, with Rench taking eighth and Reynolds coming in tenth. 

Brady Lynch would run in the Pro Late Model race and finished ninth overall. Lynch posted the fourth fastest qualifying time of the day to earn a spot on the front row for heat one, but took a “DNF” was forced to start from the back in the feature. Fortunately, Lynch would work his way back and earn another top ten finish in the number 14B.

The following week, Kevin Rench and Justin Reynolds would be back for the season championships at the track, along with Coffeen’s Matt Tomazzoli.

Reynolds would get off to a hot start by winning the first heat from the fifth starting position, while Rench ran second in the third heat and Tomazzoli was fifth in the second heat.

Five of the 17 cars in the field would not finish the race, but the bug wouldn’t bite the county racers as Reynolds put together a solid run to finish fifth, Rench took tenth and Tomazzoli placed 12th.

In the final point standings for 2020, Brady Lynch would finish second in the Pro Late Model class, while Evan Lynch was 14th in the Pro Mods and Nathan Lynch was 38th in the Modifieds. Kevin Rench finished seventh overall in the Pro Mod standings, while Justin Reynolds took 15th in the final list.
