Sue DuRoy November 8 & 9
The pits were filled the parking lots filled and the infield all with race cars. 160 cars came from every other track in this area to run the big wide 3/8 mile Pike County Speedway.
51 late models came to run for the $5000 to win SUPR race. On the start of the first heat Mike Boland jumped from the second row to run three wide upfront for the lead with David Ashley and Rob Litton. Litton grabbed the lead, but not for long and he had his hands full with Boland who took over the lead. Ashley got under Boland and took over the lead then put 7 car lengths on Boland and scored the first win. Boland second and Litton third. Second heat Bill Frye started on the pole, but it was Rodney Wing that blasted into lead and just kept stretching the lead. Ronnie Adams ran fourth then picked off his competitors one by one and finished second behind Wing. Bill Frye took the third spot. Heat number three Sam Patrick started early and the yellow flew and the field made a complete restart. This time Robbie Starnes and Kennith Crowe ran wheel to wheel for the lead. Starnes moved into the lead and scored the win. Crowe had his hands full with Sam Patr! ick lap after lap till Patrick took the position and finished second infront of Crowe who finished third. Heat number four on the first lap Tony Lawson spun in two bringing out the yellow. On the restart it was Scott Slay with the lead. Tommy Surrett found his self in a three wide battle for second with Jon Mitchel and Curt Lipsey. Surrett popped out of the middle like a hot dag out of a bun and into second where he finished several car lengths behind the winner Slay. Mitchel and Lipsey battled side by side for third. They swapped positions twice and Mitchel ended up with third. Heat five Ryan Plaisance on the pole took the lead. Jay Blair gave him a battle for the lead. A spin in two from Verlon Lee caused the first yellow. Next yellow came when leader Plaisance slowed in three and Blair and Lee Davis split Plaisance car and went by. Blair went on to score the win followed by Davis and Kevin Watts. Sixth and final heat James Ward led every lap and took the win.
