To those of you who care LOL! I seen this on midsouth. Check out They have some photos from the 100K race. With 2 laps to go there was a caution and at Batesville they race back to the flag. Terry Phillips supposedly beat Jeremy Payne to the line. If you look at the first pic on that site, it was taken as the cars were almost half-way past the red finish line. Notice that Jeremy Payne has his arm out the window and the rear of his car is begining to settle, showing he was off throttle and notice Phillips' car on the outside is still full throttle. So that says to me that MOST likely Payne was in the lead at the line. I knew it looked VERY close, but I couldn't tell who was leading. It looks like someone may owe a 19-year old guy from Arizona around $80,000 LOL! Man thats some tough luck.....

I went to a track a couple times that raced to the yellow. I asked a local if guys just kind of cruised back to it or they really did race to it. He said that when the yellow come out is when you really have to go for it because you can pass a lot of cars and even if you can just nose them out at the line, they will be behind you on the restart. Scary. I only raced there a couple times.
