Saturday night Chris Henigan from Marshall, Texas, was the star of many stars of the night with 25 Summit Racing Equipment Touring Outlaw Modified Series drivers checking in at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas, for the fourth annual Hella Shrine Classic.

In front of a packed house and with skydivers to start the night, Henigan was one of many stars to hit the track. The first heat rolled out with nine racers with Danny Caldwell, Bo Day and Chris Huckeba taking the first three spots. The second heat saw eight cars with Troy Taylor, Carl Large and Skip O’Neal. The third heat had eight cars with Bobby Ruffin, Henigan and Charlie Smith sharing the podium.

When the cars rolled out for the 25-lap feature event there were good top and bottom grooves to the track to allow some great side-by-side racing.

Colby Smith and Ruffin led the field to the green flag. After five laps there was an early caution that stacked the field up. On the restart, Day and Henigan made quick advantage from their seventh and eighth starting spots to be in the top five. After a couple of quick cautions, Colby Smith brought the field past the last caution and allowed some serious racing.

At lap 10, Day had worked himself up to the second spot with Henigan at his inside door on Colby Smith's back bumper. Henigan slipped past Day at lap 12 to nudge Smith inside quarter panel. At the midway point, Henigan got a good drive off of turn 2 to take the lead and never let is slip away.

Henigan took the checkered flag followed by Day, Colby Smith, Taylor and Ruffin.

It was a great night of racing for the benefit of the Shriner burn victim kids transportation. Henigan claimed the $1,500 top prize plus $200 from Honeycutt Sand & Gravel and topped it off with $100 for the Houck Hard Charger Award, bringing the winners share to $1,800 for the night.

The TOMS wish to thank the drivers that participated in the door panel auction that raised a lot of money for the kids, plus the Superbowl Speedway staff and Ricky Randall of Hella Shrine group for such an amazing event.

The next stop for the TOMS will be the Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Okla., on Saturday, Aug. 3.
