Hayley wins 26th Annual Yakima Speedway Fall Classic YAKIMA, Wash. (October 6, 2013)-Cameron Hayley passed Garrett Evans and Owen Riddle with six laps to left Yakima Speedway season finale en route to the victory in the 26th Annual Fall Classic as the Calgary, Alberta native became the youngest winner of the race.
Hayley took the lead just after the night's final restart at lap 196 as Evans left the bottom lane open and the race winner took advantage of the opportunity for the top spot over the final four circuits.
"Jeff Jefferson (Hayley's crew chief) gave me a great car tonight and I can't thank him and his brother Jason for all their help. It's their home track and I just believed in what he built in this Cabinets by Hayley Ford Fusion to help us get the win," Hayley said.
Riddle stayed within the top-5 throughout the night and bounced back from his 2012 Fall Classic disappointments for the podium position.
Tayler Riddle and Mike Longton rounded out the top-5.
Rich Peters struggled with his West Coast Street Stock Series Monte Carlo for much of the weekend but when the green dropped for the 75-lap the eventual race winner showed he'd found something to compete with the series regulars.
Peters led much of the afternoon, fell back on a restart in the late stages then rallied back to the front to pass Andy Stibal and held off a hard charging Bryon Goetz for the victory.
Robbie Miller and Josh Ingram finished fourth and fifth place respectively.
Jason Huffines scored an emotional victory in the Hobby Sportsman division one day after the funeral services for his father Waylon. Marching around Buck Noel Jr. in the late going, Huffines held off the race's runner-up over the final three laps for the win after 50 circuits around the famed half-mile.
Brian Pepper, Zack Washington and Kyle Wade closed out the top-5 running order.
