(May 29) Thirty Late Models filled the pits Saturday night at Flat Rock Speedway for the first leg of the six-race Royal Truck and Trailer-G Tec Truck Equipment Gold Cup series. Rick Knowles, Ken Knight and Kenny Ahlgren all shared victory lane.
The 50-lap late model feature saw Dennis Strickland leap into the lead but was pressured by Rob Randa as the duo ran side-by-side for 12 laps. Strickland held the lead until lap 24 when Steve Cronenwett whipped around him. Cronenwett led four laps including halfway, which he picked up $50 from MB Windows & Doors. Rick Knowles appropriated the top spot on lap 28 & never looked back. Bill Steinhilber flew around the high side of Cronenwett to pick up the runner's up slot.
The caution filled 50-lap A-main Street Stock event was won by Ken Knight who took over the lead from earlier leader Mike Spruell on 11. Ron Allen, like Bill Steinhilber in the late model feature, used the high groove to his advantage and was running on Knight's bumper at the checkered flag.
Yesterday (Friday, May 28) Scott Selmi won his first career feature event. Tonight he backed that win up with victory in the B-main. Bill Kollinger won his first career victory, winning the fourth heat.
Kenny Ahlgren won the 50-lap Auto Value Figure 8 Series race. The 24 car field criss-crossed their way at the intersection pulling some amazing moves. Danny Gaddis and Robbie Loving were early leaders before Ahlgren took over for good on lap seven.
