Devils Bowl Speedway (Mesquite)
March 25 (Friday)
There were 52 Lucas Oil ASCS Sprints at the 38th Annual Spring Nationals Friday night. This was the first of two nights of racing at the historic 1/2-mile clay Devils Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX. In the 25-lap feature, Aaron Reutzel, #87, started on the pole, but a few laps into the race Jeff Swindell, #28, took the lead with Jason Johnson, #41, not too far behind. It looked like Jeff was going to take the win, but with one lap to go, he lost a tire coming out of turn 4, opening the door for Jason Johnson, #41, to get his first Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters win of the young season. Coming in second was Sam Hafertepe Jr., #15h, Brady Bacon, #99, was third, Danny Lasoski, #33, was fourth, and Michael Dupuy, #33, was fifth. Jason's win locks him in, as well as Sam Hafertepe Jr., Brady Bacon and Danny Lasoski for tomorrow night's $6,000 to win finale.
It was great to see Travis Rilat, #29, back in a Sprint as he recovers from last year's accident.
