LAVENDER FALLS SHORT AT PEACH STATE

Jefferson, Ga.-Jody Lavender made a strong comeback at the end of the Peach State race but came up a little short and finished 11th. He had started 13th, moved up into the top 10, but after about 50 laps, the car wouldn't turn in the corner and he soon went a lap down. He was able to make up the lap but time ran out before he could get back into the top 10.

After the race, Jody said, "This is the same car we wrecked at Myrtle Beach and it will handle good for 40-50 laps, but then it goes away. We have tried and tried but haven't been able to find the problem. We'll take another car to Bristol and hopefully we can run better."

Jody still remains 9th in the Southern points with 2 races remaining - Bristol on August 23 and Lakeland on September 2.

The first of six championship races begins in Iowa on September 15th. Races will be replayed on the Speed channel at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and noon on Fridays. Also, races are replayed on Turner South at 8 pm on Saturdays and several other stations at various times.
