Brody Montgomery and Dylan Siewell swept their divisions at Coos Bay Speedway on Saturday night during racing on the speedway’s oval dirt track.

Montgomery increased his track lead in the Super Late Models division by winning the 25-lap main event, 10-lap heat race and five-lap trophy dash. Richard Wallace was second in the heat race and Kristy Grout was second in both the trophy dash and main event.

In the Sportsman Late Model class, Siewell swept the races, beating Tom Williams to the finish line in each. Wayne Butler was third and Charlie Withers fourth in the main event.

The best race of the night came in the Street Stock division, where Ken Fox edged David Smith by inches in the main event. Fox also won the heat race and Smith won the trophy dash.

Sam Talon picked up his sixth main event win in the Mini Outlaw class and also won the heat race, but John Henry denied him a sweep by winning the trophy dash. Tom Siewell was second, Henry third and Carl Johnson fourth in the main event.

In what has become the most competitive class, rookie Tyler Tullos took over the lead in the Hornet division with his first main event win, becoming the fifth different winner this year. He held off trophy dash winner Hannah Robison for the title, with David Pellum third, followed by Chuck Peck, Leroy Rockwell, Sam Taylor, Andy Austin, Matt Breiter and Chris Parker. Tullos also won the heat race.
