"Kentucky Colonel takes win in home state as racing action moves into the Midwest"

(Ashland, KY-- May 13, 2002) In front of a home state crowd, Steve Francis led flag to flag to win the 50-lap Renegade DirtCar Racing Series 16th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial 50 at Florence Speedway. This is Francis' first Renegade series win of the season and his second overall so far in 2002 for the driver of the #1 Mopar Performance Parts Valvoline sponsored Rocket Chassis Dodge Intrepid R/T.

This week Francis and the Rocket Chassis team have embarked on the UDTRA PRO DirtCar Series Midwest tour. Francis started the tour at the series first visit to Kankakee Motor Speedway by finishing 6th and continuing tonight (May 16) at West Liberty Speedway.

From Iowa, Steve and team travel to Eagle Speedway for a two day-two event in Nebraska followed by a visit to Dakota State Fairgrounds (SD) to round out the weekend. The May 18th event at Eagle Speedway (NB), the 10,000-to-win McCarthy-Hotentot-Siebler Heating and Air Conditioning 75, will be taped by the SPEED Channel and will air on June 20th.
