By Jeremy Fox
Bloomfield, Iowa (July 28, 2012) – Temperatures were finally cooler but the racing action was very heated and exciting at the Mountain Dew Bloomfield Speedway on Spilman Auto Parts Inc. of Bloomfield Night at the Races. Kirkland Auto of Centerville would also sponsor the JR Fan Club for the night.First feature of the night was the Mike's Tire and Alignment of Ottumwa SportMods 16 lap feature. Jim Walker would lead the first 4 laps before Mark Mundell would make the move and take the top spot away on lap 5. Mundell would then see 8th place starter "The Tire Man" Mike Shelton work his way up and make the pass for the lead on lap 9 when Mundell would get slowed by a lap car. Shelton would start pulling away until the only race caution would come out on lap 12 that bunch the field back up but Shelton wouldn't let it bother him as he would go on and take the win. Scott VanBusKirk would move up 12 spots from his 14th place starting position to finish 2nd. Mundell would fall back to 3rd, Brandon Dale was 4th and Carter VanDenBerg was 5th.
In the Kirkland Auto of Centerville Hobby Stock 15 lap feature there would be 2 yellows before a lap was completed, the first one would be when Pole Sitter "The Rockstar" Rocky Fosdyck would lose the handle in the middle of turns 1 and 2 and would get a few other cars involved, the yellow would fly again for debris in turn 2 on the restart. When the race finally got going it was Bobby Greene taking the early lead and he would begin to pull away until a red flag came out as the medical staff was needed in the pit area. After about 20 minutes it was back to racing and it would be Mike Hughes from Oskaloosa taking the lead. Hughes lead would be short lived as Fosdyck worked his way back up after going to the tail for the early caution, Fosdyck would make the move to take the lead on lap 9. Fosdyck would go on and take the win with a race car that had no right side door. Dustin Griffiths was 2nd, Hughes was 3rd, Greene was 4th and Danny Thrasher wsa 5th.

Up next was the Kollision Korner of Bloomfield Sport Compacts 12 lap feature and it was William Michel leading the first 2 laps before Hometown Boy Anthony Cassat would make the pass for the lead on lap 3. Cassat would be passed by "Old Man" Kevin Kirkpatrick on lap 5 and it appeared Kirkpatrick started to pull away but then the yellow would come ouf when Kevin Garrett would go around in turn 2. Kirkpatrick would continue to lead until lap 11 when Travis Tedrow would make the pass. Tedrow would go on and take the win his 2nd of season at Bloomfield, 2nd of the week as he pick up the win last sunday at the Great Jones County Fair and 4th win overall on the year. Kevin Kirkpatrick, Cassat, Kassidy Kirkpatrick and Tim Bevins would round out the top 5.
Taylor Automotive Stock Car 17 lap feature would be an exciting one as it was Nick Batterson leading the first lap but he would have to deal with Derrick Agee, Gary and Mike Harward for the lead. Batterson would lose the lead to Gary "The Snail" Harward on lap 3. Harward would start to pull away until late when Jason Cook would try to chase him down but run out of time. Harward would take the win, his 1st of the season. Cook, Mike Harward, Todd Reitzler and Agee would complete out the top 5.
The final race of the night was the Hobby Stock Gambler Race and all of the competitors led at least 1 lap but in the end there was an exciting finish as Dustin Griffiths would make the move and beat Rocky Fosdyck by a bumper at the line. Bobby Greene would also compete and finish 3rd but only Griffiths would take the money.
