MDLMS: Looney Unchallenged
in "James House Memorial"
CANEY, Kan. - Aug. 20. The largest field of Late Models in MidwestDirt Late Model Series history gathered on
Saturday at the Caney Valley Speedway to honor a fallen racer at the second annual "James House Memorial" race.
When the checkers flew on the field of 30 a familiar face stood in Victory Lane.
That face belonged to Republic, Missouri’s Brad Looney, a former winner on the MDLMS circuit, who drove his #14
to a clean sweep on the evening.
By virtue of passing points, Looney started the event from the pole position and was never challenged as he
lapped up to third place in the 30-lap main event. Gary Gorby would hold down second with a challenge as well but
the real slicing and dicing came in the rest of the top five as the positions changed hands numerous times on
the 1/4 mile fast and smooth Speedway.
At the end Looney crossed the stripe first followed by Gary Gorby, Shane Essary, Joe Gorby, and Jimmy
