Driver comes from the back to win
The 411 Motor Speedway Modified Mini division has been growing all year, and the addition of Terry Poore has added a dimension of driving that the fans are sure to enjoy.
Poore didn’t make his heat race and had to start at the back of the twenty-lap feature in his beautiful blue and silver Mustang. It didn’t take him long before he was battling with the other cars trying to get to the front. Poore got around rival Byron Ward on lap ten but contact with Ward sent him spinning. Ward went to the back and Poore got his shot again at the top spot. Billy Floyd had led from the drop of the green flag and had his mirror full of Poore for several laps. Poore stayed with the Pinto and finally tried the pass high in turn four. Floyd stayed on the gas and both cars held their position until three laps to go when Poore finally got the inside lane and made the pass clean. This was Poore’s third win in a row at the track and he was extremely happy in victory lane.
“No blocking this night,” he said. “Just good hard racing.”
Floyd finished in second with Byron Ward working his way back to third. Bill Lytle and William Stafford rounded out the top five.
Chris Corum started the Late Models on the second row, but didn’t run away with the win this week. Larry Sullivan and Jim Caylor fought the 1C car hard, with Corum getting around the two and heading for victory lane again. Caylor was in his first ride of the year in the plexi-glass sided Late Model doing a great job, staying with Corum all the way in the twenty lap feature. Corum took the win, but Caylor was right behind him and Larry Sullivan stayed in the mix for the whole race also. John Drew started on the pole and took the fourth position with Mark Zemeck in fifth.
Other winners for the night were Jason Thomas in the classic cars for his second win of the season, Robert Martin took his eighth win of the season, Jake Ginter in the Mini Chargers, Brian Bounds in the Legend cars and Jordan Sauceman in the Luxury Sedans.
