AUSTIN, TX - RIS - It was a day for graduating at Longhorn Speedway in Austin, TX as San Antonio driver Jaret Lozano graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in Economics and then graduated from last year's TIDA Rookie of the Year to a first time winner in the TIDA-ROMCO 100.

The young Lozano led the last 29 laps of the 100 lap race at the 1/4 mile slightly banked asphalt oval. Lozano was able to take advantage of a spin by points leader Tommy "Texas Tornado" Grimes and move into second place in his Ford Thunderbird and then took the lead when defending TIDA Champion and polesitter Jay Watson had to retire with an oil leak in his Olds Cutlass. Grimes, who had restarted at the rear of the field and living up to his nickname by passing cars at a breakneck rate, now headed to the pits with a flat tire and once again went to the rear of the field.

Second place went to Mark Schulz in his Camaro and the Chevrolet Monte Carlo of Jeremy Thompson came home third. For both drivers it was a career best finish on the Texas International Driver's Association circuit. Grimes was able to once again blow by most of the field and ended the race in fourth spot, thus retaining his points lead. Rounding out the top five was the top rookie in the field, Bubba Naumann in a Chevy Monte Carlo.

The next event for the TIDA-ROMCO Late Models will be at Sooner International Speedway in Altus Oklahoma on May 25th.
