Mike Murphy tops Late Models, Yoakam takes Mini Stock at New Smyrna Speedway

Samsula, Fla. (April 16, 2005) Inspite of the coolness of the night, there was plenty of action at New Smyrna Speedway with the 50 lap Super Stock race and Late Models, Modifieds, Mini Stock, Strictly Stock, and Pro Trucks.

The Strictly Stock division was the first feature of the night with Greg Dame on the pole and winning from the pole. Dame took the early lead and never let go inspite of a number of drivers trying for that number one spot. Nick Boley made a great attempt coming up the field but was just short of reach leader Dame.

Andercheck takes over third from Ebersole as Mike Murphy moves into fifth. The caution comes out for Alli Owens and Troy Atkins. Owens got loose going into turn 3 and spun with Atkins hitting Owens and then the wall. Owens hurt her elbow but other than that both drivers were fine. Both cars were towed into the pits and the race went back green with Gibbs on the point followed by Andercheck, Murphy, Fitch and Ebersole.
