5 - #54 Tim Dixon - is running more competitively than ever, challenging Eiland all race long.
602 Late Model Sportsman (15 Laps):
(Editorial comment - this was BY FAR the best race I've witnessed at EAMS this season - cars ran every inch of the track from top to bottom and were 3-4 wide on several occasions - congratulations to all drivers!!)
1 - #R66 Brian Hansford - pretty much owns EAMS picking up his 3rd win in 3 tries by patiently working the bottom to move up from his 7th starting spot.
2 - #111 Jackson Thomason - 3rd consecutive top 2 finish - recovered from a late penalty for jumping a restart - ran out of laps.
3 - #16 Jay Elliott - had no idea he was racing tonight, but made the best of the opportunity to get in this car - won his heat race and lead the feature early.
4 - #6 Donovan Singer - great job moving up from a 9th place start.
5 - #17M Brandon McDaniel - good work in a rare EAMS appearance.
