Browning, Missouri's Tommy Cordray has opened an 82 point lead over second place in the TNT Quick Shop Late Model season long points battle, as his top challenger, Jeremy Kelley suffered damage to his GRT Race Car on June 26th forcing him to miss the racing action last Thursday. This has allowed Wheatland's Andy Kennedy driving his familiar #55 machine to move up to the second spot although his margin over third is only four points over Ben Solberg. Walnut Grove, Missouri's Kelley has slipped back to fourth just one point behind Solberg and only 87 out of the top spot. Harlen Kennedy rounds out the Top-5 only 97 behind the leader Cordray.
