Goodson Storms to Slim Jim All Pro Series, NASCAR Touring Win at Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, S.C. - June 12, 1998 - Going into the $46,100 7 Up 250 at Myrtle Beach Speedway, two-time Slim Jim All Pro Series, NASCAR Touring Champion Hal Goodson had 12 career victories. But he had no wins at Myrtle Beach, his home track. All that changed Saturday night when the Darlington, S.C. native dominated the 250-lap race for his first series win at the 0.538-mile oval. "I've raced here for a long time at Myrtle Beach and about eight or nine years ago we were leading an All American Challenge (predecessor to the Slim Jim All Pro Series) race with about five to go and had just about as good a car as we had tonight. We blew a tire and hit the wall. I've been waiting on this moment, we had a great race car and this Nortel Networks crew, they busted a pit stop and we jumped out ahead of everybody," stated Goodson. For the seventh time in eight races a different driver captured the $300 Bud Pole Award. On the second of two qualifying laps, and as the last of 29 cars to attempt to qualify, Goodson planted his Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the top starting position after touring the 0.538-mile oval in a time of 19.892 seconds at an average speed of 97.366 mph. It was his eighth career pole, moving him into third place on the career Bud Poles list. Easley, S.C.'s Randy Gentry, after experiencing an eventful 24-hour-period culminating in the birth of his first child, put his Carolina Painting Chevrolet on the outside of the front row, narrowly missing his second pole position of 1999. Goodson's years of experience on the flat d-shaped oval served him well when the green flag waved as he maneuvered into the early lead with Gentry, Scott Kilby and rookie Coy Gibbs in tow. On lap 34, as Goodson approached Keith White and series points leader Wayne Anderson, Goodson made contact with White and it was enough to cause White to spin on the backstretch, bringing out the race's first caution. Anderson escaped being lapped and restarted at the tail of the lead lap cars, after pitting for adjustments during the caution period. When green flag racing resumed Goodson continued to lead, continuing to maintain the top spot through two more minor caution periods. The fourth caution waved on lap 104 when Robert Burroughs spun on the backstretch. During this caution period Gibbs, Gentry, David Reutimann and Anderson were the only lead lap cars to pit. Once back to green this quartet, on fresh tires, began slicing through the field. By the race's halfway point on lap 125 Gentry had moved all the way to fifth position but Goodson continued to cruise and picked up the $400 Gatorade Front Runner Award for leading when the crossed flags were displayed. In earning the award Goodson also moved into a tie with Steven Howard for the points lead in the chase for the annual Gatorade Front Runner Award. The fifth caution was displayed on lap 141 when Anderson and Howard got together in turn one. During this break in green flag racing the balance of the cars on the lead lap pitted and Gentry assumed the top spot. The green waved again on lap 146 and Goodson had moved back into the runner-up spot by lap 154. On lap 168 he caught Gentry and on the 171st circuit Goodson was declared the leader as the duo raced side-by-side across the start/finish line. From that point forward Goodson was in total command. Billy Bigley, Jr. also overhauled Gentry to capture the runner-up spot while Gentry settled for a third place finish. Ron Young captured his first top five finish of 1999 with a fourth place finish while first year driver Rodney Childers rounded out the top five. Kilby, Anderson, Jeff Fultz, rookie Lance Goodson and Reutimann rounded out the top 10. These drivers were the only starters to finish on the lead lap. Goodson established a new race record in completing the 134.5 mile distance in one hour, 46 minutes and 33 seconds at a winning average speed of 75.739 mph. His margin of victory over Bigley was a healthy 1.985 seconds. There were a total of eight caution periods for 38 laps and two lead changes among two drivers. Twenty two of 29 starters were running when the checkered flag waved. In the series point standings, Anderson maintains a narrow six point lead over Goodson as one half of the 16-race schedule is now complete. Bigley is just 19 points behind Goodson and a scant six points separates Bigley and Ronnie Burkett. Howard continues to hold down the fifth position. Jimmy King, Goodson's crew chief, earned the $300 Jasper Engines & Transmissions Crew-Chief-of-the-Race Award for the third time this season and now leads the annual points chase in that category. In piloting his Cleaver Brooks/C&C Boilers Chevrolet to a fifth place finish, Mooresville, N.C.'s Childers earned the Rookie-of-the-Race honors. He also closed the gap to just four points between Gibbs and himself for the Rookie-of-the-Year honors. The next event for the Slim Jim All Pro Series is Saturday night, June 19 at Lanier National Speedway in Braselton, Ga. The Greeson/Horton Homes 200 will be the ninth event on the 16-race Slim Jim All Pro Series schedule.
