The first annual Dick Friedley Memorial Race was held at Sunshine Speedway.

This was the second visit by the TBARA Winged Sprint Series to Sunshine Speedway this year. Dick Friedley was the Photographer, PR Person, as well as a great friend to the TBARA Family for many years, who passed away last year. Three fast heat races were won by Shane Butler, Matt Mercer, and Ben Fritz. These three drivers were eligible for the Barfield Clean Sweep Bonus. Pole sitter Ben Fritz brought the field down for the green flag with Matt Mercer along side. The fans were treated to fantastic racing action all around the tight oval. When the checkered flag flew, fifth place starter Sport Allen won, with Keith Butler second, Wayne Reutimann third, Jimmy Alvis fourth, and Dude Teate rounding out the top five. The next race for the TBARA Winged Sprint Series is at the Ocala Speedway on June 8.
