Moughan Masters Morgan County
Jacksonville, IL (8-03-07) Joey Moughan has had several instances of bad luck during O'Reilly Midwest All Star Series events this season but luck and patience helped the Springfield, IL. driver gain his first series win before a large home crowd at the Morgan County Speedway Friday night.
Moughan took advantage of the three top qualifiers failing to finish in the top four in their respective heats to gain the fourth starting position in the feature. He bolted into second at the start, following leader Terry Babb. When Babb cut a tire on lap eight, Moughan claimed the point, leading the remainder of the event. A.J. Bruns was second, with All Star Circuit of Champions star Danny Smith, Tim Montgomery and series point leader Jerrod Hull rounding out the top five. The win paid Moughan $2,000.
Hull, Jimmy Hurley and Rob Standridge claimed heat wins and Hurley copped the Dash. Paul May topped the twenty-one contestants with a lap of 11.534.
Ryan Bunton took a wild ride in the second heat, sailing over the turn one wall and landing some forty feet outside of the track. He was shaken but otherwise uninjured.
The O'Reilly Midwest All Star Series will return to Jacksonville on August 31st. Visit www.midwestallstarseries.com for more info.
