DuQuoin, Ill...----.Tyler Walker of Los Angeles, Calif. dominated Sunday night's "Ted Horn 100" at the 1-mile dirt DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds, leading all 100 miles in his Curb Records/Brown & Miller Plumbing JEI/Dodge. The victory was the second in a row for Walker, who drives for NASCAR star Kasey Kahne and won last week's 100-miler at Nazareth, Pa. on the pavement. "To run all 100 laps in the lead was awesome. I hated to see the late yellows but I had saved the tires enough that I could run hard at the end. To come out and break the track record by a half-second was great!" Walker erased Teddy Beach's 1-year-old qualifying record with a lap at 123.550 mph. to win the pole for the 100-mile race. He had built nearly a half-lap lead before the late cautions. Brian Tyler finished second ahead of Tracy Hines, Kevin Huntley and Paul White as the top five cars were on the lead lap at the end. Series point leader Dave Steele emerged with an 80-point lead over Bud Kaeding going into a September 18 race at Tulsa, Okla. Steele finished 17th, while Kaeding garnered the "hard charger" award for his drive from 18th to eighth.
