RPM Speedway (Crandall)
July 3 (Sunday)
A large crowd enjoyed a fireworks show and five classes of race cars at RPM Sunday night. RPM Speedway is a beautiful facility that is located just outside of Crandall and generally runs on Friday night. This was a special July 4 holiday show that featured the RaceSaver 305 Sprints. In the 20-lap A-main, Scott Reneau, #1s, started on the pole and quickly took the lead. For most of the race it was a three way battle between Scott, Larry Long, #1m, and Palm Harbor Homes sponsored Michael Lang, #14. Although there were some tense moments with lap cars, Scott Reneau took the checkered flag with Michael Lang coming in second and a hard charging Raven Culp, #3, placing third.

In the Modifieds A-main, Terry Pritchett, #20, started a couple of rows back, but quickly shot to the front by taking the high groove. Terry seem to have the Modified to beat as he pulled away from the field. A caution tightened things up, but Steve McMackin, #41m, had to settle for second and Westley Veal, #11x, came in third.

In the Street Stocks feature, Clint Frideley, #08, battled Chris Davis, #98, for the lead, but Chris slowly began to pull away and take the checkered flag and the win. Megan Robison, #43, was third.
Mike Marusak, #45, was the winner in the Bomber A-main. Rounding out the top three was Wyndell Luckett, #87, and Leo Howell, #103.
