Linder Whistles Dixie to the Tune of ASCS Rebel Win
WOODSTOCK, Ga. (July 12, 2008) -- Matt Linder saved the best for last to take top honors in Saturday night's 25-lap American Sprint Car Series Rebel Region feature event at Dixie Speedway.
Linder took advantage of lapped traffic on the final round to deny current series points leader Kenny Adams his sixth overall ASCS feature win of the season, pocketing the $2,000 winner's share for his efforts.
Adams had taken the lead away from initial pacesetter Matt Tiffany on the fourth lap. Weathering several cautions along the way, including a red flag stoppage after nine laps for a Matt Kurtz flip, Adams appeared to be on his away to another Rebel score.
But Linder had other ideas, shooting into the lead for the win on the final lap when Adams found himself boxed in behind a pair of lapped cars. Adams settled for second, with Bryh Gohn in third. Australian shoe Stephen Lines was fourth, with Tiffany rebounding from an early scrape to round out the top five.
Linder and Lines topped heat race action.
