9. Thorn Survives SRL 'Wild West' Shootout at Red Acres

The SPEARS (SRL) Southwest Tour Series was originally known as the SRL Wild West Late Model Shootout.  That name would have been more appropriate on Saturday night, when the series visited Redwood Acres Raceway for the Renner Petroleum / Bear River Casino 125.  In a season in which the yellow flag has been as rare of a sight as a Dodo bird, all forms of madness broke out, leading to a wild and crazy event that saw eight slow-downs, including five red flags, and a familiar name in victory circle.
