Porter rolls to Late Model Stock victory.

Toby Porter, whose primary racing division this year is in the All-Pro ranks, made a visit to Greenville-Pickens Speedway Saturday night.

And he made winning the Late Model Stock race look easy.

Porter, driving Jack Ingram's racer out of Asheville, said he had an outstanding car and promised to return to GPS next week.

"We are certainly planning to be right back here next week, and then we will be going to Kentucky," Porter said. "Then we will be right here for the All-Pro race in August."

Points leader Marty Ward, who came into the race 46 points ahead of Donnie Bishop and Gene Morgan, finished in second place, and the brightest spot in the rundown came as David Roberts drove his Dodge to a third-place finish.

Morgan finished fourth, and Kevin McCarson was fifth. Brandon McCarson was sixth, followed by Brian Conner. Ron Hall, Richie Croley and Blair Addis rounded out the top 10.

Bishop, who wrecked his primary car several weeks ago and has been driving his backup racer, had engine problems on Friday night and did not compete at GPS.

C.M. Knight was the winner in the Super Stock main event, and Robby Robbins, who had been prominent in the points race, had a night of trouble. Robbins was involved in an accident in the heat race, started the main event in the rear and was never a factor in the race.

Robin Darnell was second, followed by Randy Ballew, Greg Dodgens and Ken Guthrie. Anthony Anders was sixth, followed by Bryan Beckner, Joey Mayes, Robbins, Jackie Foster and Jon Martin.

Red Ables won the Street Stock main event, with Chris Meinders, Tim Sams, Jimmy Mann Jr. and Stephen "Bubba" Horton rounding out the field.

In the Charger One race, Shane Gentry was the winner, followed by John Weathers, Wayne Brooks, Ed Hodges and Jimmy Moffitt.

Jason Morrow won Charger Two, with Roger Knight, Jamie Passmore, Terry King and Joel Cox rounding out the top five.
