Gallagher showed again why he is currently the hottest driver in Memphis area tonight at MMP. He picked up another feature win in convincing fashion leading flag to flag. The real battle was for second as Gustavus, Stull, and Dale Howard sliced and diced around the bottom of the extremely dry 1/4 mile. At the line Gallagher was followed by Gustavus, Stull, and Howard. After tonight's event, one has to start to wonder is a bounty in order for Gallagher at MMP?

Feature Results: 1)Nate Brown 2)Dennis Shephard 3)Carl Brown 4)Wimp Gatlin 5)Danny Moore 6)Don Brown 7)Danny Christianson 8)James Fincher 9)Mike Moermon 10) 03-?
Ronnie Brown jumped to the early lead in this one and would hold it for two laps before a caution came out. During the caution Brown headed to the pits to fix a flat. He rejoined the field at the tail handing Christianson the lead. On lap 3 Nate Brown would get by Christianson for the lead. All the while Ronnie Brown continued to work his way back through the field. On approximately lap 9 Don Brown and Ronnie Brown made contact sending Ronnie spinning into the front stretch wall. In what could be deemed the "Pathetic Redneck Racing" move of the night Ronnie jumped out of his car with a sledge hammer and went after Don Brown's car. Fireman, Doug Jolly was able to contain Ronnie and with the help of security Ronnie was escorted back to his trailer. All of this overshadowed Nate Brown's first feature win as he made his return to the hobby class.
