FLAT ROCK, MI (May 23 1998) - Joe Lake Tire of Monroe sponsored the triple 50 lap features at Flat Rock Speedway held on Saturday night. The 50 lap feature for the SLM division was the first race of the Gold Cup Series at the high banked 1/4 mile track.
Royce Cornett started on the pole for the SLM feature and proceeded to lead the entire distance. Rob Randa moved into second on lap 47, pressured Cornett the final few laps but came up short at the checkered flag.
Ron Allen started the day with a vicious crash in hot laps which nearly destroyed the right side of his SLM. His crew & many helpers repaired the car and he made the feature, finishing 14th, one lap off the pace.
Allen's evening went much better in his street stock than it did in his SLM. The Lincoln Park, Michigan driver started 6th in the A-main, taking over the lead from the polesitter, Ken Knight, on lap 28. Knight held back Brian Norton and Rick Knowles for 2nd. Chuck Koob led all 15 laps of the B-main to record his first career feature victory. Henry Bradley was the C-main winner.
