TRAMMELL AND DAVIS WIN AGAIN AT "THE TAZ"

The always exciting Modified Street feature lined up with pole-sitter Allen Holt and Brad Davis on the front row. With the track being tacky it appeared that Holt would have the car to beat. At the drop of the green he jumped out to an early lead leaving Davis, Greg Estes, Chris Collinsworth, and Leonard Bray to fight for the top five. On lap number three, just as it looked that Holt would easily cruise to another win, he slowed coming out of turn two with smoked trailing from his car. Davis would take over the lead followed by Estes and Collinsworth. After starting seventh, Andrew Loving made his way up to third only to spin on his own on lap seven. On the restart, Leonard Bray slammed the outside wall in turn four ending his top five run. Davis held on to pick up his fourth win of the season.

Jason Trammell of Lake City nabbed quick time in Steel Head Late Models and shared the front row with Travis Fultz. Driving the car he calls "Ol Bessy", Trammell was looking to pick up his eighth win of the season and the thirty-fifth win overall in his trusty mount. Trammell and Fultz would race side by side for the first lap with Trammell edging ahead. Only two cautions would slow the field down yet nothing could slow Trammell as he bested the field for win number eight in his A-1 Storage Trailer, Tobler Heating and Air, Vic Hill Racing Engine powered Rayburn race car.

In 4 Cylinder action Chuck McMahan started on the pole and waged a three-way battle for the top spot with Cheyenne Kite and Kurt Owens. As McMahan pulled ahead with visions of another checkered flag in his eyes he would spin on his own on lap number five, sending him to the end of the field.. This left Kite and Owens to fight for the lead with Owens taking over the point. McMahan fought his way back up through the field and worked his way into second only to spin again on lap nine. Owens would hold on for his first win of the season.

Arguably the most fan pleasing class at Tazewell Speedway, the Pure Street division didn't
disappoint as there was side-by-side, fender bending action throughout the feature. Jordan Horton lead the first third of the race with Michael Daniels, Matt Tharp, Dustin Eldridge, and Jerry Green giving chase. After starting thirteenth, Josh Brock fought his way to the front, trading paint along the way. Brock would lead the rest of the race yet his celebration was cut short as he was protested by another driver and disqualified after a motor inspection. Jordan Horton would be credited for the win.
