Cowtown Speedway (Kennedale)
August 19 (Friday)
Koby Barksdale, #22, from Norman, Okla, mentioned that he hadn't had much luck at Cowtown Speedway in previous races. But his luck changed Friday night when Koby, who started from the eleventh spot, worked his way to the front and passed Justin Melton, #11, with one lap to go, to pick up his first American Sprint Car Series victory in the 25-lap The Oil Medics Lone Star A-main at Cowtown Speedway. Michael Lang, Palm Harbor Homes sponsored, #14, took the early lead, but spun out allowing Justin Melton to take the lead. It looked like Justin was going to get the victory, but he had to settle for second. Ryan Beechler, #6, was third, Brandon Corn, #30, was fourth and Kolt walker, #45, was fifth. Local Kevin Ramey, #7m, was sixth.
