Drivers opened the 2013 Rattlesnake Raceway season with a thunderous roar on Saturday.

Carl Barlow navigated the deep field in the Hobby Stock classification and beat out Pete Baglin for first place. Rocky Goetz, Aaron Benham and Royce Goetz rounded out the top five.

The IMCA division is also deep and filled with talented drivers, although Shawn Natenstedt pulled away from Steve Evenson for the win. Don Childs placed third followed by Walter Ball and William Galligan.

In the Mini Mods, Will Ritchey took down the field as he outlasted David Paine, Jesse James and Steve Singley. Jimmy Ford, meanwhile, won the Sports/Rat Mod race, besting Pete Olsen, Zachary Cail and Lee Ketten.

On the Outlaw Karts circuit, Amanda Olsen leads the points race narrowly over Grasen Ternora and Jordan Mull (38-37) in the Beginner class. McKenna Krshul and Caleb Gonzalez are tied for first at 39 in the Box Stock class, while Jacob Dias (40) holds a one-point lead over Trey Walter in the 250cc division.
