Duck River (TN) Speedway results from Saturday, June 2
>
> The Open Wheel main event was an absolute barnburner. Seventeen Open
> Wheels took time trials with Quick time going to Shelbyville's Chad Bone
> at 14.663.
> Chad Bone and David Gentry led the field down to the green flag not
> once but twice with the second time being a clean start. With Bone out
> front and Gentry running the high side, the Lewisburg charger went into
> turn two too hard and spun bringing out the caution flag on lap two and
> going to the rear for the restart. With David in the rear of a seventeen
> car field a sense of urgency was readily apparent and when the green flag
> came back out the charge was on. Gentry, running the high side began to
> climb back in contention and was in the Top 5 before the half way point. A
> couple of cautions bunched the field and about midway the two car battle
> of Chad Bone and Mark Haddon became a three car battle as Gentry joined
> the lead duo. With Bone on the bottom and Haddon and Gentry running the
> high line, the fans were in a frenzy. On several occasions this lead trio
> were almost three wide when on lap 15 Haddon finally forged by Bone for
> the lead with Gentry in tow. On lap 16 Gentry slipped under Haddon for the
> lead just before the caution flag came out. The lap 17 restart had Gentry
> as your leader but not for long. Gentry feeling extreme pressure from
> Haddon overcooked turns three and four and slipped up into the wall
> exiting four. This brought out the yellow flag again and on the lap 18
> restart it was Haddon back in front with Chad Bone all over Mark. Bone
> used the bottom to edge alongside Haddon on lap 19 and the lead duo ran
> most of the last two circuits side by side with Chad Bone taking the win.
> Haddon finished second with Tommy Davis coming from dead last to nip Bob
> Jarrett at the finish line, for the fourth position. Barry Rochelle
> rounded out the Top 5. Josh Dement edged Jeff Stutts to win the "Dash for
> Cash".
