Carl Dodson led the most laps with 80, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted with 7 lead changes and there were 5 disqualifications with 4 disconnects in a 29 car field ending with Carl Dodson capturing his 1st win of the season with Kevin Rupert finishing 2nd, Mike Schrader 3rd and Ed Adams capturing 4th.
This week the OBRL 12 Week Metro Ford Cup Series moves to the Toyota Save Mart 350 road race at Sonoma Raceway with the current playoff leader Brian Glass looking for ways to maintain his lead in the Series.
The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?
We shall see when the green flag drops at 11:40 am Eastern time.
