EVENT REVIEW: Jake Hobgood finally put his Wynn's/Precision Engine Service Pontiac in victory lane at this event after a frustrating season. Bud Pole winner Robert Huffman was leading the event with five laps remaining when Link Kiser's machine spun right in front of the leader causing him to spin to avoid hitting Kiser's race car. The race produced 10 lead changes among three drivers with five of those changes coming in the first 11 laps between Huffman and Hobgood. "We certainly didn't plan things that way, said Hobgood, but that is the kind of racing that Lanier brings out in drivers. The track is wide and allows drivers to pass if they can keep the car down low." When Huffman spun, that allowed Zach Brewer, Johnny Chapman, Eddie Kelley and Justin Hobgood to also move up in the final results.
