The 2019 OBRL Nascar Metro Ford Cup Senior Tour Series Toyota Owners 400 race at Richmond Raceway started with Gary Griffith capturing the pole and Jim Westerfield recording the fastest lap of the race. Randy McCanney gained 12 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Dwayne McArthur led 107 laps, going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 2 cautions with 9 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with 2 disconnects in a 30 car field ending with Dwayne McArthur capturing his 2nd win of the season with Jim Westerfield finishing 2nd, Eddie Jones 3rd and Patrick Milligan capturing 4th.

This week the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series is off next week for Easter with the current playoff leader Dwayne McArthur 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.

In the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series points championship, Mike Schrader 2nd, Josh Mayeu 3rd, Joel Kilburn 4th and Eddie Jones in 5th

The Talladega race on 4/28/19 will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
