Taylor Triumphs in ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Run at Hayden
HAYDEN, Colo. (August 18, 2006) -- Defending American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region champion Gary Taylor snared his first series win of the year by wiring the field in Friday night's 30-lap feature at Hayden Speedway.
Taylor won his heat race from the tail to earn the pole position for the feature, then survived several cautions along the way, including a wild lap eight restart in which both Eric Miller and Larry Lapoint flipped in separate incidents at opposite ends of the speedway, with Jake Pierson also crashing.
Taylor took his fifth career ASCS Rocky Mountain Region win in front of Greg Schaefer and Nick Haygood. After starting outside the front row, Dustin Hall rebounded from an opening lap spin to snare fourth, with current series point leader Patrick Bourke rounding out the top five.
Josh Fellows claimed sixth, with Jeff Heffner, Keith Rauch, Ricky Montgomery and Julee Jamison completing the top ten.
