After every feature race at Humboldt Speedway, a select number of top 5 cars is required to undergo post race tech inspection. Items checked  change each week, so it’s  in a driver’s best interest to “keep it legal”.
 
From a spectator standpoint, post race tech is routine, maybe a good time to go get another beer or a hot dog. 
 
Still, there are moments:
 
Fans had just been treated to maybe the most exciting Factory Stock feature this year; Scott Stuart had narrowly defeated a hard charging Gary Langworthy, Jr.  Door to door combat had raged through the field. Everybody finished. It was a great race. 
 
Then, as the USRA Modified feature was forming up, word from the pits, two Factory Stocks out of the top five were DQ’d, including the winner!
 
Seems that there was a problem with the rear suspension in the #74 Stuart car involving the springs. Also, Patrick Kay, who finished fifth, was found to be out of compliance with the rules.
 
In the end, Langworthy, Jr. was declared the winner. Jay Lamons, Jr. was awarded second, with Jeremy Wilson scored in third. David Matlock took fourth, with Tim Phillips fifth.
 
The USRA/McCarthy Auto Group Modified feature was classic, a pure speed deal. Ryan McAninch, current points leader, engaged Whitey Folk in a high side/low side thriller for the lead, until the rear end gears in Folk’s #6 car self destructed. McAninish then had to fend off eventual runner up Jess Folk, Jr., who was in turn dueling with third place finisher Johnny Allen. Travis Smith was fourth, while Cody Schniepp came from 19th to 5th.
 
In the Ray’s Metal Depot B-Mod main, Jimmie Davis wired the field, while Tim VanGotten and Tyler Kidwell  finished second and third, respectively. Fourth went to Riley Whitworth, Matthew Lang was fifth.
 
A back up engine carried Derrek Wilson to the winners circle in the Whitworth Construction Pure Stock feature. Mitchell Coulter took second, Jared Hayden was third. Fourth went to Donnie Devers, Mike Aielo was fifth.
