Yackey Dominates Tucson’s Turkey Shoot


TUCSON, Ariz. – Brett Yackey topped a 10-car field to win the 125-lap Turkey Shoot super late model race Sunday afternoon at Tucson Speedway.

Yackey started third and was able to move past polesitter Bryce Bezanson on the sixth lap to take the lead. He dominated the race from there, easily outclassing the field on his way to victory at the three-eighths-mile paved oval.

“We had a really good car,” said Yackey. “The 7 (Bezanson) was real good there at the beginning. I was just kinda of cruising behind him, holding my time. I knew there probably wasn’t going to be many cautions so once I got out (in front) I just kind of held my pace to get a little bit of a lead.”

Bezanson settled for second, several seconds behind Yackey. Brandon Farrington was third, followed by Tanner Reif and Dylan Jones.

In other action Sunday, Bill Lawrence won the vintage sprint main event while Grant Thompson won the 75-lap junior late model feature from the pole.
