Page became the sixth different winner in nine events so far on
the season. Page drove the Troy Baird Trucking, T&T Trucking,
Elite Concrete-sponsored Durham Racing Engines-powered Stinger
Race Car to the $4,000 payday.
Austin Smith and Page led the field of 22 to the green flag for
the start of the 40-lapper with Page jumping to the point. A caution
with no laps complete set the field back up for another try at
the green flag. Page would jump back out to the lead on the second
try and never look back for the big payday.
Five caution flags slowed the main event. The opening lap saw
the first yellow fly as Justin Shipley spun around in turn two.
Tanner English went around in turn two to bring out the second
yellow on lap two. On lap nine, Brandon Overton slowed in turn
three. On lap 20, Jamie Oliver slowed on the front-stretch and
entered the pits for the remainder of the event. On the final
yellow on lap 23, Scott Groves came to a stop in turn two after
slamming the wall in turn one.
The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by
Sunoco Race Fuels returns to action on Sunday May 26th at Rome
Speedway in Rome, Ga. racing 50 laps for $5,000 to win and the
season finale will be Monday May 27th at 411 Motor Speedway in
Seymour, Tenn. racing 52 laps during the Seventh Annual Scott
Sexton Memorial event paying $10,052-to-win.
