April 6, 2001
The opening night of the 2001 season at Farmer City Raceway
saw Roger Long use his 27 years of experience to outrun the
defending track champion Joe Ross, Jr. in the 25 lap feature.
Polesitter Long battled the first two laps with outside front row
starter Joe Harlan, then after taking the lead for good, ran away
unchallenged for the win. The top six finishers were Long,
Ross Jr, Harlan, Bret Sievert, Steve Hillard and Matt Taylor.
The companion class of modifieds had a feature rained out
from last October paying $5,000 to win. In a fast and furious
race to the checkers, Shane Cottle held off Brian Lynn and
Randy Huffman after doing battle with modified hot shoes
Gary Cook Jr, Lance Dehm, Arby Burton, and Mike Chasteen.
