Several nab titles at speedway

WHITE CITY — Several points championships were determined at Southern Oregon Speedway Saturday.

John Derby needed only to start the mini stock race to claim his title. He did so in a borrowed car, which made it to lap 19 of the 20-lap A main before breaking down. Curt Ballard slipped past Bob Burkett on the last lap to take the win.

In the super 4s, Joe Guider didn't win but he did beat out Parker Jones by 21 points for the championship. In the race, winner John Barger edged Jones across the finish line.

Duane Orsburn won the street stocks A main and the track title.

In pro stocks, Dustin Knight, last year's rookie of the year, claimed the title with a third-place finish. Brian Johnsen triumphed.

In the feature race, the modified A main, Matt Duste took the lead on the 11th lap after starting in the next-to-last row and held on for the checkered flag. Track champ Mark Wauge dropped out on lap 5 with mechanical problems.
