Local Racers Close Out 2020 At Tri-City, Fayette County


It was two nights in two towns in two cars, with two solid outcomes for the Lynch Motorsports team as they closed out the 2020 season.

Nathan Lynch took the 14N for a spin at the B-Mod Bash on Friday, Nov. 6, as the Hillsboro racer competed against 76 other B-Modifieds for a chance at the $3,000 grand prize in the feature.

Lynch would qualify 25th overall, giving them the fourth starting spot in their heat. He would finish third in his heat race and start fifth in the B-Main with hopes of transfering to the feature.

Unfortunately, a flat right front tire would end those hopes and the 14N went to the non-qualifier race instead, where the winner would take home $1,000. Lynch would put together a solid run and finished in fifth place in his final run of the season.

While Nathan ended his season on Friday, younger brother Brady Lynch would close out his 2020 the following night at the Fayette County Speedway finale in Brownstown.

Driving a car owned by his father-in-law, Kevin Rench, Lynch finished ninth overall in a field of 27.

The Lynchs weren’t the only ones racing this weekend either. Rench was in the driver’s seat for the B-Mod Bash on Friday and finished sixth in his heat and eighth in the C-Main.

Sorento’s Eldon Hemken ran fourth in his heat in the 4-Cylinder class, then finished sixth in the 12 car feature. Hemken would also compete at Fayette County, where he finished second in his heat race, but lost oil pressure under the caution in the feature and lost ground. For the year, Hemken finished fourth in the nation in 4-Cylinder UMP points, first in the West Region, first at Tri-City, second at Fayette County and had nine feature wins.

Nokomis' Anton Loskot raced in the Street Stock class at Tri-City, taking 12th after running fifth in his heat.
