Two straight for Turner; Brown, Hogue also win at Abilene
ABILENE, Texas (Jan. 13) - Jeff Turner couldn't have scripted a better start for his 2002 season.
The I.M.C.A. Sunoco Stock Car speedster from Dallas followed his opening weekend win with a second victory in the Point Chasers Challenge at Abilene Speedway.
Scotty Brown topped the I.M.C.A. Sunoco Modified main event while the I.M.C.A. Hobby Stock checkers belonged to Mary Hogue.
Turner started in the sixth row, took the lead with eight laps left and went on to pace a feature field that grew to 22 cars.
Mike Greer prevailed in the fight for second with Bobby Morgan and Duain Pritchett was fourth. Robert Ferron rounded out the top five.
Looking to improve on his 10-win campaign last year, Brown controlled the Modified main from start to finish. He won comfortably ahead of row two starter Scotty Cook.
Chasing Cook at the end were Michael Sams, Brian Canady and David McKay.
Bouncing back from a seventh-place run the week before, Hogue was also dominant in topping the Hobby feature.
She started up front and fought off lengthy challenges first from week one winner Paul Martin and then from Jeffrey Cox.
Cox was second, Martin third. Everett Keel and Mark Maywald completed the top five.
Weather permitting, the first annual Point Chasers' Challenge continues Jan. 20 and concludes on Jan. 27.
