Kenny Adams Completes ASCS Rebel Sweep at East Bay
TAMPA, Fla. (November 10, 2007) -- Kenny Adams completed a sweep of the weekend's American Sprint Car Series Rebel Region season-ending double by wiring the field in Saturday night's 25-lap feature event at East Bay Raceway Park.
Adams' eighth overall ASCS feature win of the season brought his weekend earnings to $4,900, with Saturday's clean sweep adding $2,900 to his $2,000 payday on Friday night.
In addition to Saturday night's $2,000 winner's share, Adams' winnings were bolstered by another $500 bonus from C&M Mushroom Farms along with another $300 from Bob Potter and a $100 victory in the Thomas Enterprise Trucking Dash.
While "The Malabar Missile" collected the big bucks, for the second night in a row he had to work for it. After fending off Greg Leonard on Friday night, it was 18-year-old Matt Tiffany offering up the challenges in Saturday night's feature.
Tiffany slipped around Adams on a pair of occasions in Saturday night's feature, but Adams was up to the task and responded on each occasion to snare his fourth ASCS Rebel Region feature win of the year aboard the Don Ott-powered B&W Enterprises No. 4a Shaw.
Tiffany settled for runner-up honors, with Leonard, Danny Martin, Jr., and Brian Maddox rounding out the top five. Adam Gordon was sixth, with Gene Lasker, Josh Weller, Dakota Stephens and Bryn Gohn completing the top ten.
Despite being credited with an 18th place finish, Pierson, Florida's T.J. Winegardner garnered the inaugural ASCS Rebel Region championship by a mere 18-point margin over Brian Thomas, who finished 11th.
Maddox, Stephens and Adams topped heat race action, with Michael Miller winning the "B" Main.
