remained with Scott and Davies running side by side and Barton out in front by
ten car lengths. Parker spun causing caution three and allowed the field to
close with Barton. Barton was able to pull away from Davies and Scott on the
restart. Bump Hedman was fourth with Bossard fifth and Rich Gardner sixth. At
two to go Barton had rebuilt his lead and Scott had a couple of car lengths on

complete a spin by Craig Dean and Bob Craig caused yellow three. Bidwell
remained the leader with Carley second and Dorman third. Bruce Hordusky Jr. was
fourth with Ryan Scott fifth. A lap eight spin by Zack Carley caused caution

point Bidwell led by five car lengths. Ed Coast pulled a steaming race car into
the infield for caution five with eleven laps complete. Scott broke on the
restart pulling into the infield as the green stayed out. Bidwell began
