FULLEN TAKES HOOSIER LOTTERY 100
By Dave Hascall
ANDERSON, Ind. (Aug 24)----Ray Fullen scored the final leg of the Hoosier Lottery Triple Crown Series at the Anderson Speedway, Saturday. The series, for the Hoosier Park Late Models, offers its own unique, separate points race with grueling 100 lap races. You could say that Fullen “smoked” the competition, more literally than figuratively. Jim Cooper showed the way early, but a spinning Jeff Lane caught Cooper and Jim lost several laps in the pits. Fullen assumed the lead over Bobby Fields and Orie Parkhurst. Fields race was stopped after a tire went down. Brian Rievley moved to second and Vic Hellis to third by lap 63. Fullen nearly lapped the entire field, during this run. Suddenly, observers began to notice a glowing left rear brake rotor on Ray’s mount. The corner caught fire, but Fullen soldiered on. The fire extinguished itself on lap 90. Lap 92 saw Hellis pass Rievley on the outside for second. Fullen won over Hellis, Rievley, Parkhurst and Al Grogg.
Herb Rose drove by polesitter Terry Malone at the start of the 15 lap Big Lots Figure-8 main. Gene Huston was crashed on the start and could not continue. Tom Gossar and Mike Cain crashed out of 3-4 on lap 3. Rose won over Chris Bair, Malone, Joe McKenny and Rod Phipps. Phipps and McKinney won heats.
Steve Jackson passed early leader James Gann and went on to win his first Street Stock “A” main. Danny Whitaker was a close second over Gann, David Garrity and points leader Wayne Young. Shawn Ellis took his first feature, the “B” main. He won over Bob Jeffries, Billy Doggett, Gary Moore and Mike Fredricks. Gann, John Rose, Moore and Danny Stanley, Jr. won the heats.
