TRANSPORT GRAPHICS FACTORY STOCK
Ben Solberg puts another slash in the win column this season at the track as he cruises to the Lucas Oil Speedway Winner’s Circle. It looked like he was going to have his hands full with the Transport Graphics car but a mid-race spin between turns 3 and 4 ended that battle prematurely. Kenny Carroll and James Flood joined Solberg to celebrate up top.
With the second place finish, Carroll squeaks by Flood for the points lead. Chris Darnell fought his way back to finish 4th and Keith Webster rounded out the top 5.
Ken Hicks, Chip Shaddox, Randy Gilmore, Chad Eckhoff and Gary Griffin take us through the top 10 finishes. Gilmore, Eckhoff and Griffen split the hard charger award three ways from 14th, 17th, and 19th place starts respectively.
Chris Tonoli put his ’64 Chevelle on the pole Saturday night but a brake line failure relegated him to a 14th place finish.

SLICK MIST LATE MODELS
We had several Show-Me cars in the class tonight including Leslie Essary and last week’s winner Rex Merritt. However it was the Hubert boys that “showed” the way to winner’s circle finishing first and second.
It sounds simple on paper but it was a bit of a heart stopper as the sibling rivalry was decided on the last turns. Evan Hubert started on the outside of row two but after row one jumped the start, row 2 got to try. Evan never looked back from that point leading all but less then half a lap.
In fact Evan set a new “Limited” Late Model lap record with a blistering 15.80 during the Feature. However, with the checkered flag ready to fly and lap traffic ahead, Evan chose the high line. Brother J.D. who had been making up time on the leader through the traffic dove low into turn three and came out of four with the lead and the win.
Essary joined the dynamic duo in the winner’s circle finishing third with Tommy Cordray and Rex Merritt rounding out the top 5. Daniel Jessen and Toby Ott (driving with a broken finger) finished 5th and 6th. Kevin Kaiser, Matt Menzie and Jerrod Hilton finished in the final top 10 spots.
