FORT WORTH-DALLAS (Aug. 26, 2000) - Fans battled the hot temperatures and dirt bike riders turned up the heat on Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track. At the end of the night, Kenny Noyes of Antioch, Calif., and Terry Poovey from Euless, Texas, stood in victory circle as winners in the Wrenchead.com National Dirt Track Series. Noyes won the Pro Singles main event and Poovey took home the trophy in the National Championship division of the Rattlesnake Roundup at the dirt track. After winning his heat race, Noyes moved to the front of the pack in the Pro Singles main event when race leader Chris Carr dropped out of the race with mechanical problems in the 8th lap of the 12 lap final. Noyes competed in the race despite a broken right shoulder and arm from a previous race. "I was just hanging in for the last lap," Noyes said. "I couldn't get gas as quickly as I wanted because my arm was killing me, but we were lucky enough to finish it out and win." Bryan Smith of Flint, Mich., finished second in the Pro Singles, followed by Michael Gilkey of Ft. Arkinson, Wisc. In the National Championship main event, Terry Poovey, who started in position one on the front row after winning his heat race, took home the victory in the 25-lap feature race of the night. Chris Carr of Fleetood, Pa., finished second just .330-seconds behind Poovey. Glen Schnabel of West Bend, Wisc., placed third. "It feels so good to win in front of so many of my hometown fans," Poovey said after the race. "I knew Chris (Carr) was closing in, and I had some lapped riders to deal with. I still can't believe I won it a home." "The only way I was able to catch Poovey was the lapped traffic," Carr said. I was lucky to get as close as I did."
