Adams Aces ASCS Southern Tour Test at Lavonia

LAVONIA, Ga. (June 24, 2006) -- After a runner-up finish in 2005 Heintz Performance American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour points, Coby Adams cracked series victory lane for the first time by wiring the field in Saturday night's 25-lap feature event at Lavonia Motor Speedway.

Adams fought off Johnny Bridges much of the way before slipping away in the final rounds to secure the victory aboard the SSJJ-owned Automotive Specialists No. 28 Maxim.

In the process, Adams pounced upon the series point lead as Butch Pendergrass, who entered the night atop the points chase, scratched from competition after engine woes in hot laps.

Adams was chased to the stripe by Bridges, with Brian Smith, Eddie Hamilton and Kris Brooks rounding out the top five. The balance of the top ten included Jeff Young, Matt Linder, Lance Moss, Matthew Greene and Doug Day.

Brandon McLain flipped in the "A" Main but walked away uninjured.
