Sept. 26 (Saturday)
The "Race Fan's Dream" at Cowtown Speedway Saturday night was one of the best programs, definitely one of the largest shows, in Cowtown's history. The sold out program featured eight classes of cars and the 9/11 Memorial and Fireworks Show that had been scheduled for Sept. 12. If that wasn't enough, there was a demolition derby to round out the evening.
George White (left), Sprints, and Clyde Dunn Jr., Modifieds, were the big winners.
In the Sprint feature, George White passed Chad Wilson with a few laps to go to win the $1,000 first prize. This was the last warmup for the Sprints before the Second Annual Cowtown Sprint Nationals sponsored by ShopTheBoss.com and Lonestar Speedway on Oct. 9-10.
Clyde Dunn Jr., "Little Freaky", started on the fifth row inside and powered his way past Triston Dycus and Justin McCoy to win the $2,000 first prize. Patrick Daniel won the Hard-Charger Award and an extra $250 from AFLAC.com. There were over 200 race cars in the pits and 47 of them were Modifieds.
D.J Estes pulled off the upset of the evening by defeating Jeb Sessums, who had won 11 consecutive features, in the 600 Mini Sprint feature. With a couple of laps to go, Sessums was closing fast on Estes but developed mechanical problems and had to pull out of the race.
In their second appearance of the season, Max Eddie Thomas bullied his way to the front to win the $1,000 LenMar Motorsports sponsored Late Model feature.
It was truly a dream come true for the race fans with an exciting night of racing that included an impressive 9/11 performance with music, videos and fireworks.
