posted October 14, 2001 07:24 PM I would like to announce to everyone that #33 Al Purkey is the 2001 MLRA points Champion. He won this honor last night at Mid-America Motor Speedway, at their Fall Blowout. Al and #64 Rex McCroskey tied in points, but Al holds the tie breaker of most wins this season. The nights racing was exciting as #22 Alan "The Wild Child" Vaughn from Belton Missouri came from the 17th starting spot to caputre the win in the 60 lap feature earning him a $5000.00 pay day. 38 Latemodles were on hand for the 2 day show which was rained out with 2 heat races to go on friday. Saturday night they finished the 2 heats and went right to the B-Features and the 60 Lap A.
