   The racing weather in Bedford Friday night was winterlike cold, but Dave Troutman was hot for 25 laps.  Troutman, who  waited a decade between Bedford feature wins before scoring last week, jumped back in only seven days later to score again in Friday night action.   The recent pair of wins doubled Troutmans career total to four Late Model wins at the track, the other both coming in late 2007.  In other action, first time winners reigned as Kyle Ganoe scored his first career 305 win and Troy Johnson took the EMod event.  Josh Frankenberry took the Pure Stock event before Wayne Brenize ended his short retirement with a 4 Cylinder win.


     A bit of luck accompanied Troutman for the evening.  As only the second event of the season, the lineup was determined by pill draw and Troutman was not handicapped in the field as the recent featuire winner.  Then Troutman again benefitted as front row starters DJ Troutman and Nathan Lasalle both failed to answer the call for the start, moving him two spots forward.

    Andy Haus, with a dominating performance, took the longest Bedford  event of the season, the Labor Day 55, at Bedford Friday night.   It was Haus’ first win in the prestigious event and he became the first second generation winner, following two wins by his father in the 90s.  In other action on the final point race of the season,  Jonathan Taylor, Erik Weyandt and Darren Howsare also scored wins.
    Andy Haus made the best of a front row starting position in the Late Model 55.  He shot off to the lead at the start and basically never looked back.   Several early minor cautions slowed the field but Haus got away on every restart.  Rine found himself locked into a ferocious battle with Dylan Yoder for second which started on about lap 10 and lasted for the duration.
   Haus’ only worry happened on lap 24 as he was clipped while lapping Jeff Johnson.  The resulting action saw Johnson impact the inside guardrail heavily while Haus suffered only slight damage.  After that action, the event went all green.   Matt Cosner secured fourth spot with 20 to go and began to reel in the battle between Rine and Yoder, but he fell short at the finish.
