    Um, left out some details……. Michael Long started 13th in the feature. The track was really, really rough. Alot of good cars tore up. (Not the tracks fault, they have been getting alot of rain too) He had passed Schrader for the lead. He had it won!!! Hit a hole in 1 and 2 and tagged the wall. Flat tire and broken /bent front end. Couldn’t steer. Dave Wietholder also got tore up when he hit a hole in 3, broke a brake line and hit the wall. Michael was flying!! But, as one classy lady said….the driver was okay and that is all that matters!!

    Dustin,

    Thanks for filling in the blanks. Impossible to know all that from a results sheet.
