1990 – Steve Fraise and Sonny Smyser were winners at Capital Speedway in Holts Summit, Mo., on Saturday, June 2. Fraise, the “Flyin Iowan” from Montrose, started the 25-lap NASCAR Grand American late model feature on the outside of row six, but made his way steadily through the field and caught Mark Burgtorf of Quincy, Ill., on lap 23 for the lead, then sailed to the win. Smyser, out of Lancaster, Mo., returned to Capital for the first time this season and won the A-modified feature handily, leading all 20 circuits. Racing fans got to see their first racing action at Capital since May 5, after three consecutive washouts.
1979 – Dub May made shambles of the World of Outlaws’ debut at the Sunshine State Expo Grounds in Topeka, Kan., on June 2, as he led all 40 laps in making a near-clean sweep of the program. May shattered the old track record in qualifying, eclipsing Sane Carson’s mark of 20.83 seconds. He would finish second in his heat and win the trophy dash. Although May made it look easy in winning the feature, he had to hold off persistent challenges from both Steve Kinser and Leland McSpadden in the early going and then Bobby Marshall in the closing stages. Marshall would settle for second followed by Kinser, Bobby Layne and McSpadden.
