HERZOGS GET HISTORIC FATHER SON VICTORIES AT MADERA
SPEEDWAY by Steven Blakesley
MADERA, CALIFORNIA (June 18, 2016) - Austin and Bryan Herzog achieved an unprecedented feat for
Father's Day weekend, with the father and son duo each claiming Late Model victories in Saturday's
MAVTV-televised action at Madera Speedway. Austin, 13, won an outstanding 51 Fifty Jr. Late Model
race for his third win of the year. Bryan later won the 100 lap LoanMart Open Late Model for his first
victory of the season.
Austin's win was yet another come-from-behind victory in the 50 lap contest against a 15 car turnout.
Herzog navigated through entire field in just 16 laps after a mid-race incident, and used a stunning turn
four pass on the outside of Ryan Vargas on lap 48 for the win. Herzog's wins in the last two races have seen
him lead just six total laps.
Las Vegas' 12 year old Dezel West took quick time and led the field to green. Herzog kept West in sight
throughout a series of early race caution periods. A strong battle developed between 11 year-olds Idaho's
Zachary Telford and Jesse Burks for fifth. Burks dove inside Telford in turn one on lap 13 but spun to bring
out the caution.
Canadian Ben Silliker, also 11 years old, used the ensuing restart to overhaul Telford and bring Austin
Edwards from Southern California with him. The pair then applied pressure on Las Vegas' Kyle Keller for
fourth. West led Herzog,15 year-old Ryan Vargas, Silliker, and Keller into the halfway break at lap 25.
After a five minute break for adjustments, the action continued with Edwards using the restart to get fifth
from Keller. Edwards and Silliker showed great driving ability as they drove out of some sideways contact
a few laps later. Edwards eventually slid to a halt in turn one to bring out a lap 33 caution. Slowing for the
caution, West and Herzog made contact on the front stretch with West spinning. West blended back in for
third place with Vargas assuming the lead over Silliker. Herzog was relegated to the rear.
West turned up the wick to try to gain the lead back as he made contact with Silliker in turn four with
Silliker spinning. Jarrett Gilmer sliced through the traffic to take over second on lap 39 while Herzog
slowly chipped away at the leaders. Things escalated when West tagged Gilmer in turn one on lap 44, with
Gilmer spinning. Kolby Berry assumed second and Herzog found himself third.
Ali Gay had made her way to fifth but got tangled up on the restart in an incident that ended the race for
April winner Austin Edwards. Herzog moved his way past Berry and put his sights on Vargas for the lead.
On lap 48, Herzog jumped to the outside of Vargas in turn three. Vargas drifted wide in turn four with the
pair making slight contact. Herzog raced past a sparking Vargas and never looked back for the victory.
Vargas nursed a flat right front tire to ultimately finish eighth. Herzog led Berry, Silliker, RJ Smotherman,
and Gilmer the top-five finishers across the stripe.Click here for more...
