Scott Carlson took off from the pole position and roared off to win tonight's Kentucky 150 race for the NASCAR Southeast Elite Series at Kentucky Speedway. Carlson was also the winner of the series' most recent Kentucky visit, winning here last summer when the division was still known as the NASCAR All-Pro Series.

Carlson lost the lead for part of the late stages of the race after his pit stop, when John Wilkinson attempted to go the full race distance without a fuel stop. Such was Carlson's dominance, it looked like he might catch Wilkinson anyway, but the challenger pulled into the pits for a splash of fuel on lap 91 of the 100-lap race. Wilkinson finished sixth, one lap down.

Erik Darnell also attempted to win the race on fuel mileage and was able to go the distance on one tank, but Carlson was so fast, he finished over seven seconds ahead of second place Darnell anyway!

Joey Miller, who spent the early part of the race battling previous Kentucky All-Pro winner Jeff Fultz for second place, finished third. Fultz retired with engine failure at the halfway mark of the race.

Charlie Bradberry finished fourth, the final car on the same lap with the streaking Carlson, and Ray Skillman rounded out the top five.
