LIMA — The hot weather couldn't stop the great racing at Limaland as Stolly Insurance Group presented the 22nd UNOH Anniversary event.

Jared Horstman picked up his fifth K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invader feature win of 2019, while No. 95J Jerry Bowersock grabbed his first Limaland victory of the season in the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds. Jordan Conover picked up his 3rd Bud Thunderstock A Main win of the season.

Kicking off the night were the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders with their 25 lap A Main.  Adding some additional incentive to the feature, NRA promoter and Tim Hogan Carpet of Lima owner Ron Hammons offered a $1,000 bonus to the front row starters if they elected to start from the tail and could win the feature.  Both Tim Allison, and Hud Horton passed on the chance, so Hammons offered $500 if the drivers in the 2nd row would take the challenge.  Cloverdale's Jared Horstman, who was scheduled to start 3rd told Hammons to make it $1,000 and he would do it.  A handshake sealed the deal and the feature was set.

Allison and Horton led the field to green with Allison grabbing the early point. Allison, Horton and Randy Hannagan battled for the lead for the first 2 laps before Horton would grab the point followed by Hannagan.  All eyes were on Horstman, however, as he picked his way through the field, moving to 6th by lap 6, then 5th on lap 8.  On lap 15, Horstman would find himself in the 3rd position with nearly a full straightaway separating him from the 2 leaders. Horstman caught a huge break on lap 16 when teammate Max Stambaugh rolled to a stop on the backstretch, bringing out the yellow flag, and bunching the leaders up.  On the restart, Hannagan would get by Horton in turns 3 and 4 and seemed to be pulling away, but Horstman would clear Horton and as he closed on the leader, Hannagan spun in turn 2 and nearly collected Horstman, and ended in the infield, clear of the racing groove, so the green flag stayed out.  Horstman would power to the checkered flag over Horton, Allison, Todd Heuerman, and Jimmy Stinson

Next up were the Northwest Physical Therapy UMP Modifieds with Troy Catterene, and Jerry Bowersock making up the front row.  Bowersock wasted no time grabbing the point in the Best Performance Motorsports sponsored.  Caution would wave on lap 3 for and Brandon Ordway tangling in turn 2.  On the restart, Bowersock would continue to lead while Nathan Loney, Catterene and Dylan Woodling would race 3 wide for 2nd.  Woodling would grab the 2nd spot until lap 7, as Loney would make his way past and set his sights on the race leader.  By lap 11, Loney would start peeking to the inside of Bowersock and the pair would race side by side until lap 15, when Bowersock would pull away for good and win over Loney, Todd Sherman who started 12th, Woodling, and Tony Anderson.

In Bud Thunderstock feature action, Tony Anderson, and Jeff Jessup would bring the field to the green flag.  Anderson would lead laps 1 and 2 with Jordan Conover, and Daniel Sanchez right on his rear bumper.  Conover would power to the lead and be slowed only once on lap 4 for caution involving Mark Wooten.Conover would dominate the rest of the feature, winning by a full straightaway over Anderson, Sanchez, Jessup, and Dan Wooten.
