Fountain, Colo. - Results Sunday afternoon (June 27) from the running of the "Rocky Mountain 100" Coors Light Silver Bullet Series Race at Pikes Peak International Raceway, with starting position in parentheses, driver, hometown, laps completed, reason out if any and money won: Fountain, Colo.,.......Tracy Hines of New Castle, Ind. captured Sunday's "Rocky Mountain Classic" at Pikes Peak International Raceway, leading from wire-to-wire, averaging an all-time series record 133.164 mph. in his Indiana Underground Construction Special. The win was Hines' first in the series and vaulted him to fourth in the new standings going into next Friday night's Pepsi "Sumar Classic 100" at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track. The win was worth $17,600 out of a total purse of $87,152. "The car was fast right out of the trailer," admitted Hines in victory lane. "We changed nothing. I knew if we could stick to our game plan we would be in good shape." Series point leader Ryan Newman closed late in the race but Hines worked traffic to his advantage. "Once we got out of traffic it freed up the car again and I was OK. I was hoping we wouldn't have any yellows and we didn't." Twenty-two of the 30 starters were still running at the checkered flag in the race which sported no yellows. Newman's runner-up finish enabled him to extend his point lead over Russ Gamester to 33. Rick Treadway, who finished 11th, earned the Turbines, Inc. "Rookie of the Race" award. Trailing Hines and Newman in the 100-miler were Jack hewitt, Brian Tyler and Chet Fillip. Pole winner Dave Steele, who qualified at 140.718 mph. on Saturday, failed to finish the race, dropping out after 74 miles with handling problems.
