fellow competitors, to take second spot by the 6th

for the lead for several laps, with Perry finally taking the
lead for good on the 34th lap to go on and

second spot. Eric Caudell piloting the #7 super truck,

third position. Followed by Weller in fourth, Ryan Hicks

handling car in the past few weeks, to take his #18 Factory
Stock back to the winners circle once again. Matt, starting
back in the third row had gained the lead by the 2nd
lap and remained unchallenged throughout the race. Following
back about 3 car lengths, #35 Kyle Ragland gained the second
spot also on the second lap, to finish second. Newcomer
Ashley Baskett in his flashy #21 hot rod took home the 3rd
spot. Also making his asphalt debut, Ruben Morris of Tulsa,

couple of laps. Kevin Brewer in the #01 grabbed the lead for
the 3rd lap getting passed by the #7 James Yount..
Yount kept the lead for four laps, coming out of turn 4,
spun in front of the field. Everyone split and avoided the
car except for the #30 Mike Evans. Having no where to go,
and on the brakes hard, was unable to avoid hitting the
stalled car of Yount. Both of the cars were wreckered to the
pits. Brewer gained the lead on the restart, but developed
mechanical difficulties and faded to the back. Bullington
gained the lead on the ninth lap to capture another win. The
returning car of Kent Kantor made a challenge on Bullington
but was unable to complete a pass, finished in the second
spot. Previous winner Kent Guthrie took home the third
position, with Monty Baker fourth. Brewer fifth, and
newcomer Gene Pearce rounded out the top six.

five. Brady also won his heat race giving him yet another

competitors. The #8 of Billy Perkins and the 1T of Ryan
Taylor took to the track for a 10 lap shoot out! Ryan
Taylor took home his first clean sweep taking both the heat

back of the field quickly passed his fellow competitors to
