NCRA's Garry Lee Maier Wins 7th Brodix Tournament of Champions

Knoxville, Iowa (August 7, 2005) - Garry Lee Maier, running under the National Championship Racing Association (NCRA) banner, claimed the 7th annual Brodix Tournament of Champions title at Knoxville Raceway Sunday night. The win paid the Cimarron, Kansas driver $5,000 for his efforts.

The feature, which was scheduled to go thirty laps, was cut to twenty laps due to track conditions which were hard, dry and abrasive.

The championship race was red flagged twice for opening-lap wrecks which sidelined several cars. When it finally went green, pole sitter Joe Beaver grabbed the top spot and drove his sprinter to the top of the big Knoxville half mile. Johnny Anderson followed him but circled the track on the bottom. Lap four saw Garry Lee Maier take over second sending Anderson back one spot. At the end of five laps Beaver could claim only a five car-length lead.

Maier, who had found a new line on the Knoxville oval by running a mid-track groove, got around Beaver on the next lap and claimed the lead, a spot he would not relinquish for the remainder of the race.

At the half-way point Maier had managed a 15 car-length advantage in lap traffic. He was followed by Beaver, Anderson, Billy Alley and Curt Michael. At this juncture most all the cars had found the bottom, which had taken rubber up to nearly mid-track.

With five laps to go, Maier could claim a 25 car-length advantage over Beaver but that huge margin would dissolve to zero when a yellow flag came out with just two laps to go. John Kearney had jumped the cushion and slammed into the turn two wall. At this point there were twenty-three cars left running.

On the restart Maier again took control of the race and when he hit the checkereds two laps later he was 10 car lengths in front of Knoxville Raceway regular Anderson, who had made a late race pass to claim the runner-up spot. The Tod Roberg Maxim passed the weight inspection and was pushed to the victory platform in front of Knoxville's sweeping grandstands.

Beaver from Knoxville was credited for third, United Racing Club (URC) point leader Michael was fourth, Sprint Invaders Association (SIA) point leader Jesse Giannetto took fifth and Billy Alley of the American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region was sixth. Winged Outlaw Warriors (WOW) point leader Randy Martin finished seventh (started 19th) as one of the few cars that was able to move forward on this dry-slick track. Rounding out the top ten were Larry Ball, Jr., of Knoxville, Knoxville point leader Jake Peters and WISSOTA Promoters Association point leader Chuck Swenson, respectively.
