Racing roundup: Keller double-dips again at East Bend

Tryon’s Mike Keller traveled east last weekend but still continued his recent success, winning a pair of races at East Bend Motorsports in East Bend.

Competing in the 20th Annual Gold Cup, Keller claimed top honors in the 40+ Vet A/Expert and 50+ divisions.

Making the day even more special for Keller was the presence of his son, Braxton, who competed in the 450C division and placed ninth.

In dirt track action, Polk County High School student Jake Jackson earned a division win at Travelers Rest Speedway while Tryon’s Blayde Edwards grabbed a second in other action at the track.
