EL CAJON - Kenny Hall has been chasing Rick Hagen all season in Cajon Speedway's CSCRA Street Stock division.

Saturday night at the 3/8-mile paved oval, it was Hagen, the division's points leader doing the chasing for nearly the entire second half of the 25-lap NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series main event at Gillespie Field.

Hall, of El Cajon, was only the fifth fastest qualifier of the evening, but he was more the fast enough to fend off the challenge of top qualifier Hagen to capture his first main event win of the year, taking the checkered in 18:53.52.

"You see yellow (the color of Hagen's Monte Carlo) in your mirror, and he's got the fastest car out there," Hall said. "I wanted to win more though."

Hall put forth a brave move down the back straightaway on lap seven to take the lead in the three-wide battle.

"I was just going to the front no matter what. I don't care what it took," said Hall, who is second in the season standings.

Hall then assumed a six-car length lead that would have Hagen chasing him throughout had a pair of yellows not brought the field together twice.

"After the first yellow, I started to pull away a little bit, and I thought 'All right, this isn't going to be so bad'," Hall said. "The second yellow came out and I saw my (engine) temperature go up and up and I thought, 'oh, no."

And his brow may have begun to sweat, as well, as Hagen put constant pressure on both sides of Hall's rear bumper. But the eventual winner withstood the challenge with defensive driving in the turns.

Richard Hinze moved up through the pack and into third on lap 17 and held the position. Dave Arce was fourth, while Rich Green, Jr., took fifth.

"I got one of these," Hall said displaying his main event win sticker. "I plan to get more. It's awesome. I'm glad we could get the win for everyone that works on the car.

"I just wanted to win. Rusty (Rodvold) has been working on both cars, but it doesn't matter. Chances are, two cars aren't going to come off the track in one piece every night.

David Beat, of El Cajon, captured his seventh NASCAR Late Model Sportsman Stock main event of the season, leading the final 32 of the 40-lap main to take the checkered in 34:11.59. Beat also earned his fifth Sid's Auto Body Hard Charger $200 award of the year by earning the most passing points.

Beat, who qualified fastest, took over from Billy Hoagland shortly after a restart on lap five and held off a strong run by Stephen Peace, who chased the leader for the final 30 circuits. Hoagland would hang on for third, besting Ron Overman and Bob Wickey. Ben Carver was sixth.

Season-long rivals John Manke and Rick Chavez got involved in the wreck that took out both drivers as Manke chased Chavez's left-rear bumper for the first 13 laps. Chavez resorted to getting out of his damaged car in turn three and threw his arms up in the air, upset about the way his night ended. Manke car came off while running, but didn't return after a discussion with officials at the track entrance from the pits.

Veteran Rodney Shaw, of El Cajon, took his second bomber main of the campaign, taking the 20-lapper in 19:39.81. Marty Lehrke was second, while Mike McGlone was third. Points leader David Whisenant finished fourth to retain his overall lead over Lehrke.

Greg McCown, of Lakeside, turned in the fastest qualifying time.

J.R. Trent, of Jamul, captured the 20-lap Factory Stock race in 12:12.39 for his first trip to victory lane this season, as he passed Pat Bradley on the inside down the backstretch and into turn three with seven laps remaining. David Liedike, who turned in the fastest qualifying lap, got up for second on the final lap, passing Bradley.

Michael Peace, of El Cajon, won the 20-lap Allison Legacy race after starting fifth in the seven-car field, taking the win in a swift 6:28.07. Scott Dannen, who started at the back after qualifying first, moved up for the second spot, while Chad Hines garnered third. Peace assumed the lead on lap seven from Stephen Peace.
