Feature Notebook:

  • Billy Decker brings out the first caution on lap 1 with a broken right-front shock and will load the 91 onto the hauler.
  • L.J. Lombardo brings out caution #2 on the backstretch on lap 2.
  • Great battle at the front of the field the first 20 laps between Danny Johnson and Tim Fuller for the lead.
  • Matt Sheppard up to 4th from an 8th place starting spot early in the event.
  • Pole Sitter Adam Roberts lapped by Danny Johnson on lap 23.
  • Late race caution will give Sheppard a chance at the lead battle with Fuller.
  • Nobody can stop Tim Fuller tonight, the 19 is on rails and takes the victory.

 

What Won the Race:

Tim Fuller outdueled “The Doctor” Danny Johnson to grab the lead in the first 20 laps of the 75-lap feature event and put enough distance between himself, Johnson, and Matt Sheppard to control the rest of the A-main.

 

 The Skinny:

The “A-train” Adam Roberts and “The Doctor” Danny Johnson led the field to the green flag for the Summer Broiler 75.  The action quickly got hot at the front of the field with an epic battle between Johnson and the 19 of Tim Fuller for the race lead.  Fuller finally prevailed, making the pass on Johnson and setting a blistering pace around the 5/8 mile Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.   Fuller quickly got into lap traffic which kept the top 3 within striking distance.  Matt Sheppard moved up from the 8th starting position and got by Johnson for position number two.   A late race yellow would wave and give Sheppard a shot at Fuller for the race lead, but Fuller had the 19 dialed in tonight and outdistanced the field to bring home the $7500.00 payday.  Sheppard finished second, Danny Johnson third, Gary Tomkins fourth, and Alan Johnson rounding out the top five.

 

Winning Quote:

“That battle there with Danny was something.  Danny doesn’t lay down and he is going to make you earn every bit of it.”  – Tim Fuller
