Dakotah Knuckles would take the race lead at the start of the
11th Annual Buddy Rogers Memorial feature event, with Jordan Horton,
Jason Trammell, Robby Moses, and David Crabtree in tow. Horton
would immediately look for the lead take it momentarily on lap
two, but the caution flag would wave for a spin by Lynn Leach
and nullify Horton’s pass. The restart would see Knuckles
maintain the lead, with Trammell taking second from Horton, while
David Crabtree would take fourth on lap three. Knuckles would
have to start working slower race traffic on lap thirteen and
Trammell would start to close in on Knuckles for the lead. Eighth
place starting and defending race winner David Payne would make
his way into the top five and take fourth from Horton on lap nineteen
and bring 12th place starting Donald McIntosh along into fifth.
The front pair would be in heavy traffic at this point and Knuckles
and Trammell would be side-by-side at the line to complete lap
twenty and Trammell would nose out in front on lap twenty-one,
but a caution for a shredded right-rear tire on Jordan Horton’s
mount would draw the caution on and nullify Trammell’s pass
for the lead, while Horton would go to the work area and get a
fresh right-rear tire while the rubber debris was cleaned up off
the track. Knuckles would again hold the lead on the restart,
while Payne would take second from Trammell. Knuckles would maintain
a steady lead over Payne until the final caution of the race flew
on lap thirty-nine for a spin by Joey Standridge in turn two to
set up a quick sprint to the finish. Knuckles would keep the race
lead on the restart and keep Payne at bay over the final few circuits
to score the victory, with Payne taking runner-up honors, while
Trammell would settle for third. McIntosh’s charge from
12th would see him finish fourth, while Crabtree would round out
the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be Moses, Greg
Estes, Horton, Jeff Neubert, and Joseph Faulkner.
The Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series feature event
would see Ricky Arms be dominant throughout the event with a lap
four caution for a spin by Tyler James slowing the efforts of
Arms. The race would go green the rest of the way and Arms would
see the checkered flag first, with current series points leader
Clayton Miller finishing second. Wayne James would complete the
podium finishers with a third place effort, while Jesse Rupe and
first-time Tazewell visitor Zac Harris completing the top five.
The rest of the finishing order would be Billy Palmer, Amos Bunch,
Tyler James, Jeff Akard, and Rick Standridge.
