Dunker nearly ends streak, moves closer to century mark

Lost to many in Sunday night’s action at the Bullring was Tony Dunker’s near-miss in the modified feature.

Dunker, a two-time track champion and three-time runner-up, was frustrated again to win his first main event since Aug. […]

May 29, 2010 12 Comments

Oh boy, here we go again … I’m looking at various weather forecasts at 8 p.m. Saturday and most are calling for about a 30 percent chance of (thunder)showers between 3-6 p.m. Sunday.
