The Skinny:

Tristan Van Wieringen and Jack Smith led the field to the green flag… Smith immediately jumped out into the lead and started to drive away… Bubba Pollard and Cody Coughlin methodically worked their way through the field as they worked to save tires as well… Pollard took the lead with about 25 laps to go and drove away… Coughlin cleared Travis Braden to move into second and went after Pollard, but Pollard was too far in the clear… Pollard hit lapped traffic, but as hard as Coughlin charged it just wasn’t enough… Pollard took the win by 1.45 seconds over Coughlin, Nate Walton, Carson Hocevar, and Travis Braden.

 

Winning Quote:

“This was awesome,” said Pollard.  “It was a good, clean race.  We got good notes and more laps here for Monday night and this place is so challenging you always need laps here.”

 

Winning Crew Chief:
Gary St. Amant

 

Winning Chassis:

McCoy Technology

 

Winning Engine:
Hamner Racing Engines

What Won the Race:

Biggest Mover:

Michigan native turned Florida resident Steve Dorer picked up 11 spots from his 19th starting spot to finish 8th.

 

Biggest Loser:

Trevor Berry ran inside the top-five for most of the night until an incident on a late race restart ended his night while battling for fourth. After starting 4th, Berry dropped 19 spots to finish 23rd.

 

Title Fight:

Cody Coughlin is now scored as the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour points leader.  Coughlin is a former JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour champion and is also the ARCA/CRA Super Series points leader.

 

Notebook:

The JEGS/CRA points provisionals went to Andy Bozell and Phil Bozell.

Lauren Bush and Andrew Nylaan won their respected last chance races and will make up the final row for the 100 lap main event.

Tristan Van Wieringen and Jack Smith led the 24-car field to the green flag for 100 laps of racing.

Tonight’s race saw just three caution periods.

The margin of victory from Bubba Pollard to Cody Coughlin was 1.45 seconds.
