With the triumph, Adams took over a narrow point lead, holding a 21-point lead over Cherryville, NC, shoe Johnny Bridges, who has two ASCS Southern Tour feature wins to his credit this season. Bridges enters Saturday's card just one point ahead of his cousin Lance Moss, with Jeff Young and Butch Pendergrass rounding out the current top five.
