The Skinny: After spinning in the early laps, Tommy O'Sullivan fought his way through the 23 car field. Luke Hinkley dominated the 100 lap race, with DJ Shaw challenging him on restarts. A late restart allowed O'Sullivan to get by Shaw and then put on the bump and run in the final three laps. It is the first career GSPSS win for Tommy O'Sullivan.

 

Winning Quote: "I certainly don't want to race like that, but I wasn't out to wreck him, and I didn't. I'm pretty sure he would've done the same to me if he was in the same position."

 

On the Move: Tommy O'Sullivan's spin put him in dead last, and fought back to win.

 

Biggest Loser: Guy Caron started outside pole but slid back getting caught in a wreck, finishing 21st.

 

Pre-Feature Notebook: 

-No incidents in practice.

-DJ Shaw rolled out his second car after the PASS rain out at Speedway 660.

-It was a clean sweep in heat races for Claremont drivers.

-This is the first season in a Pro Stock for Jimmy Zullo. His car was an ACT Late Model a year ago.
