Brett Heeter won both Holley USRA Stock Car features.

It was a tale of double-ups in the second event on the season Saturday at the Atchison County Raceway. Night number two was double features for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Holley USRA Stock Cars.

Starting out the night was the Holley USRA Stock Cars with Brad Whitney leading the way early. Whitney, with several wins in "The Cage," knows his way around the place and was rim-riding on the last lap when disaster struck. Total devastation of his transmission and a huge ball a flames in turn three, and right behind him was Brett Heeter. Somehow, Heeter avoided and made it to the checkers just in front of Scott Herrick, who would finish third.

"This is a busy little track," Heeter said in his post-race interview.

Starting from the fifth row in the second feature, Heeter wasted no time making his way to the front. After making a few revolutions at the hub of the track he went back to the top side and never looked back. Heeter took home $1,000 on the night.

The Atchison County Raceway pays the Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods $400 to win and $75 to start. In addition to that, if a car finishes top five at any Friday night track and comes to "The Cage the following night and wins, they pick up another $100 in the "Smackdown Challenge."

What's more, if 30 or more cars in either class show up to race we pay $500 to win and have increased payout for the top three cars. That not enough? How about this... if 40 cars show in either class we offer $750 to win.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods saw a familiar face in "The President" Truman Asher. Asher, with a track championship here, has racked up many wins. In the first race of the night, Asher got to an early lead and did not see any traffic until lapped traffic, which provided no obstacles to the veteran racer.

Starting from the fifth row in the second feature, Asher had to work through traffic early but made short work of it, finishing off his night with the double-up as well.

Make plans to be back next week for the best racing action around. Gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps begin at 7:30 and racing starts at 8 p.m.

Until then don't be afraid of The Cage.
