(Thomas Hendrickson Photo)

Jackie Boggs would take the lead at the start of the 60 lap, $10,050 to win 12th Annual Iron-Man Classic, but Jason Jameson and Michael Chilton would immediately begin to apply pressure with a three-wide battle taking place that would eventually see Chilton go to the top spot on lap 10, while Boggs and Jameson continued to duel, only now for the second position. However, Chilton’s spot at the front would be short-lived as he would be the cause of the first caution of the race with 17 laps completed when he would slow in turn four with left-front suspension damage after contact with a slower car in traffic and contact with the tire barrier that keeps the cars out of the infield. This would put Boggs back to the point and after a trio of quick cautions, the battle for the lead really heated up as Boggs and Jameson would battle for the lead and Scott James would close in on that pair. | full story
