Bridges an ASCS Southern Tour Mileback Master
GRAY COURT, South Carolina (May 12, 2006) -- Johnny Bridges stormed to victory lane in the Sprint Car debut atop the 3/8-mile Mileback Speedway dirt oval in Friday night's 20-lap Heintz Performance American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour feature event.
Bridges took the lead at the outset and led all the way en route to becoming the eighth different winner in as many feature events since the ASCS Southern Tour's revival at the beginning of the 2005 season.
Bridges moved atop the series point charts with the triumph aboard the C&B Mushroom/Stainless Fabricators No. 07 J&J by beating his cousin Lance Moss to the stripe. Eddie Hamilton, Jeff Young and Butch Pendergrass rounded out the top five.
Completing the top ten were Tim Perry, Josh Harris, Scott McClaren, Dave Thorman and Dale Arnold.
The feature was interrupted by three red flags, with Bill Moore, Bronzie Lawson and Doug Day each taking wild rides. There were no injuries.
Bridges, Day and Moss each scored heat race wins.
