Ebert, Ewing, Reiff, Meyer, and Younger Claim Opening Night Central Missouri Speedway Wins!

April 29, 2023  |  by Sam Stoecklin

The Douglas Ray Brockert Memorial served as the season lid-lifter at Central Missouri Speedway on Saturday night. There were 77 race teams participating in POWRi-sanctioned action, which included 27 B-Mods, 21 Super Stocks, 9 Pure Stocks, 13 Midwest Mods and 6 guest class Lightning Sprints.

POWRi main event victories went to Jacob Ebert in B-Mods, Blaine Ewing in Super Stocks, Spencer Reiff in Pure Stocks, Dave Meyer in Midwest Mods, and Chasity Younger in POWRi Midwest Lightning Sprints.

The night was halted when a serious crash during the Super Stock main event took place late in the race when Andy Zeller’s car left the speedway, resulting in a series of rollovers with the car coming to rest upside down. A life-flight emergency was called, and the driver had to be extricated from the vehicle. After outstanding work by emergency responders, Mr. Zeller was secured and was responding to emergency responders and officials prior to being airlifted for focused treatment. There were no further updates provided at press time.

The four weekly racing division drivers raced in honor of and were on the receiving end of extra payout money left by Douglas Ray Brockert, a long-time CMS race fan after his passing just after the conclusion of racing last season. Brockert developed a love for racing from watching his late brother, Mike, race at CMS. Douglas left a donation for the four weekly racing series divisions, which he requested “be split evenly between all the weekly drivers.” Douglas had a huge heart and felt sorry for the drivers that would finish in last place or not do well and this is why he wished for the money to go to every driver, not just the winners. Each of the weekly racers received an extra $23 at the pay window from Brockert’s donation.
