closed in to challenge as traffic came into play.

only to have Gemmill surge back to the front and open up an
eight-car length car advantage by the time the checkered flag
“When he got by there, I wasn’t sure if I would get him back,”
Gemmill commented afterward. “I wanted to try
the bottom but nobody ever showed me anything down there, so I
just stayed up top and it worked out.”
Behind the lead duo, Clay Sellard outdueled Troy Gemmill for the
show position with Nick Link rounding out the top five.
In the 20-lap Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car feature,
Brian Herbert held off a mid-race challenge from
Jordan Knight and then repelled a late charge from Jeremy Huish
for his first win of the season. It was
Herbert’s first triumph since topping last year’s opening night
“That was a hell of a show, I’m worn out,” Herbert commented.
“I saw (Jeremy) Huish there. He came
from pretty far back, so I knew had to get going.”
Herbert gridded the feature field outside the second row but
wasted no time shooting into the lead on the opening lap.
Herbert stretched out his advantage in the opening rounds
of the non-stop affair, but Jordan Knight and Huish began to
close the gap with Luke Cranston and Steven Richardson
ultimately moving within striking distance as well.
Knight poked his nose under Herbert at the midway point, only to
have Herbert deny the bid. Huish made his way
past Knight for second by the 12th round and then put
the pressure on Herbert until sliding into the lead in turns one
and two on the 16th circuit.
Herbert responded by racing back into the lead and kept his
pursuers at bay over the final rounds.

Stock Car ranks by racing to his second consecutive win of the
year and 11th triumph in 15 starts since the

starting position into the lead and paced the field for the
balance of the 15-lapper. Munoz raced to the
stripe ahead of Chris Oliver, who slipped around Ondre Rexford
for runner-up honors on the final circuit. Rexford settled for
third with Josh Seibert and Marlin Hogie rounding out the top
