Brian Smith Scores ASCS Southern Tour Triumph at New 311
MADISON, North Carolina (May 13, 2006) -- Brian Smith ended a streak of eight different winners in as many Heintz Performance American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour feature events dating back to last year by topping Saturday night's 25-lap headliner at New 311 Speedway.
Smith, who won last October's World Short Track Championship ASCS Southern Tour feature event at Lowe's Motor Speedway, snared the lead at the outset and led all the way to become the third different series feature winner in as many 2006 events.
Smith was chased to the line by Butch Pendergrass, Jimmy Burns, Doug Gold and Matt Linder, with the balance of the top ten including Bronzie Lawson, Jeff Young, Scott McClaren, Kris Brooks and Dale Arnold.
Heat race victories were claimed by Lance Moss, Coby Adams and Pendergrass. Moss and Adams both retired from the feature event with mechanical woes.
Three drivers emerged from the night knotted together atop the point standing, including Pendergrass, Johnny Bridges and McClaren.
