Boyett Wins Outlaws 35

Despite Handling Issues, Boyett Bags 2nd Outlaws Victory; Doug Thorpe Wins in CS

Logan Boyett showed his cards and his car’s strength less than two turns into Friday night’s Faith Chapel Outlaws 35-lap feature at Five Flags Speedway.
Starting on the outside of Row 1, Boyett blasted around pole sitter Chris Cotto as he led an 11-car field down the back stretch. Boyett was game for sparring sessions from a few challengers, but ultimately secured his second win in three features this season. He finished runner-up in the other race.
“The car tightened up bad the whole race,” a pleased, but unsatisfied Boyett said. “It’s something in this new car we just can’t quite find. It’s getting a little better each time. My guys work so hard.”

They worked hard to get their driver back to Victory Lane following Carter Taylor’s first career win earlier this month. Taylor finished second Friday, flip-flopping with Boyett from the April 5 feature. Bubba Winslow came home third.
Cotto was Boyett’s biggest obstacle to overcome Friday. The Milton driver watched the Pensacola driver pull ahead moments after the green flag dropped, but Cotto didn’t let Boyett break away. He fought back and applied pressure to Boyett during the first half of the race.
However, Cotto spun all on his own coming out of Turn No. 2 around the 20-lap mark and watched his chances of a win go up in smoke with him.
Taylor went on the hunt next, but Boyett opened up his cushion and was in the wind on Lap 29.
“I missed it tonight,” a dejected Winslow said. “I didn’t do what I needed to do during the week, and it showed up out here. We settled for third. But we’ll get to where we need to be. My guys work way too hard for us not to.”

Gulf Real Estate Group Pro Trucks
Treyce Capers raised the bar for himself and his program when he broke through at the end of 2023 with a Gulf Real Estate Group Pro Trucks win at Five Flags Speedway.

Now, Capers is quickly becoming the driver to beat each time the Mississippi native slips into his fire suit and safety gear. After already hoisting checkered flags at other track this season, Capers continued his winning ways Friday at Five Flags.
He took the lead from Cody McCawley on Lap 7 and steadily widened the gap for the remaining 18 en route to Victory Lane in the Pro Trucks 25-lap feature.
“This feels pretty cool,” said Capers, who was battling an illness Friday. “We can’t go easy on anybody. We have to keep working and keep thar speed there.”

His work began paying off at Night of Champions last September. Capers captured the Pro Trucks feature that evening and finished an impressive third a few months later at the Pro Trucks Derby race.
Brandon Burks’ runner-up finish was his best results in several years and young Tennessee driver Jacob Clayton rounded out the podium.
“It has been a long time since we ran that good,” Burks said. “All my guys worked hard on it this afternoon. We’ve got it going in the right direction.”

The Dock on Pensacola Beach Sportsmen
James Patrick wasn’t about to stay down for long.
Last time The Dock on Pensacola Beach Sportsmen raced at Five Flags Speedway, Patrick was involved in an on-track incident that led to more drama in the pits. It snapped his three-feature winning streak, including the Sportsmen edition of the Snowball Derby last December.
Patrick bounced back in a big way Friday. The Alabama driver took the lead on Lap 6 and withstood a hard charge from B.J. Leytham to capture his second Sportsman 25-lap feature this year.

“All I really had time do this week was work on the sheet metal,” Patrick said in reference to the wreck with Maddox Langham earlier this month. “I was hoping it didn’t bend anything. Obviously, it didn’t. That was some of the best racing we’ve had this year.”
Leytham finished runner-up and Parker McDonald, who won on April 5, rounded out the podium.
“This guy’s so fast,” Leytham said of Patrick. “He does his homework. We’ll get a little bit better, and maybe pull ahead of him.”

Story & Bleich Roofing Crown Stocks
The two veterans, with nearly 90 combined years of racing experience, shared a warm handshake in Victory Lane.
This Friday night belonged to Keith Thorpe, 62, while fellow 62-year-old Okie Mason has owned the season.

Thorpe got his first win at Five Flags Speedway in years and his first career victory in the Story & Bleich Roofing Crown Stocks division thanks to a 20-lap feature win against a field of 20 other cars.
“It has been a long time since I’ve been in Victory Lane,” Thorpe acknowledged. “This class is a good class and a lotta fun. The young guys out here are tough.”

But it was a night for the old guys, as Thorpe and Mason battled down the stretch for the checkered. After winning the opening two features of the season, Mason settled for second and Braeden Kitchen collected third for his second straight podium finish and third top-five of the year.
“It’s good to see another old man win,” Mason said. “I always have a blast, and (the Crown Stocks drivers are) all getting better.”
Kitchen led the opening lap but was in defense mode from the drop of the green flag. Ryan Bleich Sr. wrestled the lead away moments later only to see Kitchen reclaim it on Lap 3.

As good as Kitchen was, Thorpe wouldn’t be denied. He went inside of Kitchen on Lap 6 for his first feature lead in years. Thorpe refused to relinquish it the rest of the way.

Victory Lane was a homecoming for Thorpe. He accepted congratulations in the form of hugs and handshakes from a host of track officials and drivers.
“The Thorpe family has had a tough road of late,” he said. “We lost mom and dad a few years back. This is a long time coming.”
