BLOOMINGTON -- A stunning and talented field of 51 sprint cars unloaded at Bloomington in a quest for the inaugural Spring Clash and the $3,000 payday.

Brady Bacon took his Mopar powered machine to the top of the time trial charts.

A familiar sight in Victory Lane this year has been Bloomington's Brady Short, seen here celebrating after a win on Friday night.
Brady Short has had the car to beat nearly everywhere he's gone this season.

On Friday he won the opening heat race and proved that he was going to be tough to top again.

Dickie Gaines, Danny Holtsclaw and Thomas Meseraull took the final heat races.

In the feature, Short and A.J. Anderson started up front and once the green came out, Short quickly pulled to a comfortable lead.

He'd hold that spot through a couple of cautions and two reds brought out by flips by Jon Stanbrough and Meseraull.

Short held off an exciting rim riding chase by Jeff Bland Jr. that came to a close when he tangled with Holtsclaw with four laps remaining.

On the final re-start, Short re-established his lead and cruised to his first of two wins this weekend. He also claimed the Twin Cities feature on Saturday for his fourth feature win of the young year.

Anderson was runner-up, Chris Windom placed third, Cottle took fourth, Bacon was fifth, Jon Sciscoe finished sixth, Gaines seventh, Dustin Morgan, Jesse Cramer and Cole Whitt rounded out the top-10.

The DeMoss family had a good night in UMP Modified racing, with John DeMoss taking the top spot and Clint DeMoss second followed by Ryan Thomas, Matt Boknecht and Shelby Miles.

John DeMoss (No. 79d) raced to a victory on Friday night at Bloomington Speedway.
Jeremy Hines took the super stock victory on the famed red clay ahead of Jack Frye and Brad Cummings. Chris Deweese and Mary Cooper rounded out the top-five.

Friday night is HARF and DARF night with members getting half off admission for the sprint cars, UMP super stocks and modified card.
