Duck River (TN) Speedway results from July 27
>
> Quick qualifier Jimmy Nowlin (13.132) led the first seven laps
> before Jay Brinkley edged by for the lead. Brinkley then proceeded to lead
> the final seventeen circuits to pick up his second win in as many weeks.
> Two time winner Corey Posey slipped by Nowlin for the runner-up
> position and did keep some pressure on the high flyin' Brinkley but could
> not make any inroads on Brinkley's margin of victory. After timing in with
> a 14.090 lap, defending Super Stock champion showed prowess in a late
> model by notching a very impressive third place finish while Billy Barnett
> and Bo Judge came from the rear to take fourth and fifth on the final lap.

> Fayetteville's Rick Currin won his heat race then withstood a
> furious onslaught by last week's winner Scott Cook and three time victor
> Tim Orrell. Cook and Orrell were both eliminated when the two young
> chargers made hard contact in turn one at the half way point of the

> It took former Super Stock ace Tommy Davis nearly a year and a half

> chauffeur has that first win it's as though the flood gates have opened.
> Davis picked up his fourth feature win in the last two months by beating
> back a strong effort by Barry Rochelle and points leader John Schetrompf.
> Newcomer Shane Scott had a fine effort to take the fourth position from
> Tim Lunn. Heat winner Bryan Reed still can't shake his season long woes as
> last year's class runner-up led the feature event until a flat tire ruined
> Bryan's night. Junior Daniels also won his heat and like Reed was in
> contention until the wall jumped out and bit the Open Wheel star

> Singer Gloria Gaynor must have had the Duck River Super Stock
> driver's in mind when she recorded her hit song, "Only the Strong Survive"
> because each week it not only takes speed and skill to win in this
> division but determination and perseverance. Well Saturday night Jay
> George had all the aforementioned ingredients for success as the class
> point's leader slipped around early front runner Tash Bruce with just two
> laps remaining to capture the win. Bruce settled for second with Joe
> Morgan, Paul Burns and Jason Holt all having terrific runs to round out
> the Top five. George and Morgan also were the heat race winners. A note of
> interest here: Bruce and Morgan were the only two Super Stock racers in
> the entire field of twenty that did not get sent to the rear because of an
> on track altercation or else have to make a pit stop due to a flat tire or
> needed repairs, which required those drivers returning to the track
> following their pit stop to restart in the rear.

> Michael Chumbley overcame defending class champion Steve Kennedy and

> Phil Wrigley says, "Double your flavor and Double your Fun" with
> Double Mint gum. Well Columbia's Michael Chumbley has his own version of
> that jingle. "Double your wins and Double your Fun" and that is just what
> the Maury county marauder did. Chumbley not only won the Outlaw Pony main
> event but got the best of first time hopeful winner, Joseph Storey in the
> Pure Pony main event. The win was Chumbley's eighth of the season in Pure
> Pony and twelfth overall ( four in Outlaw Mini) Billy Davidson captured

> Normally racers to not applaud another's victory but I suspect last
> night's win was cause for celebration as Jeff Hurst won his third and
> final Rookie Pony feature of the season. See, when a Rookie driver reaches
> that plateau of three checkered flags, the track rules force the racer to
> move up to the Pure Pony division. Early leader Michael Victory held off
> Donald White for second spot. Victory and Paul White were the heat race
> winners.
