Terry Woodley finishes seventh at Sunset Speedway

By: Ashley McCubbin — Terry Woodley would keep himself out of trouble and avoid the maylay as he scored his first top 10 of the season with a seventh place feature finish on Saturday night.

Woodley didn’t kick off the night well as he suffered a DNS in the first heat, pulling off before the first lap due to mechanical issues. He would get the issues sorted out before the second consolation race to work his way through the field to finish third. As a result, Woodley would get to start the 35 lap feature in the second spot.

Woodley would give up a couple of spots on the first lap as a multi-car wreck happened behind him when a couple drivers made contact while running four-wide. When the race restarted, Woodley fell back a couple more spots, running seventh by lap four. Woodley continued to drop back, falling back to ninth by the second caution at lap 10 for Brad Burleigh spinning.

When they went back green, Woodley would get by Shawn Gerrior to move into eighth at halfway. In front of him at lap 17, an incident happened between Billy Melenhorst and the lap car of Steve Love, which allowed Woodley to move up to sixth as he also got by Scott Simmons in the process.

On the restart, Woodley and Kendra Adams would break out into a battle for the seventh spot. The pair battled the entire second half of the event, with Adams getting sixth and Woodley getting seventh.
