October 15 (Saturday)
Over 120 Sprints rolled into LoneStar Speedway for the 1st Annual LoneStar Speedway Sprint Car Nationals. $12,000 was up for grabs to the winner in the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters 360 Sprints A-main Saturday night.
In Saturday's LoneStar Speedway 360 Sprint Car Nationals finale, Gary Wright, #9, started on the pole and quickly took the lead. About half way through the race, Shane Stewart, #57, took over the lead from Wright, with a hard charging Jason Johnson, #41, not to far behind. Johnson passed Wright and he and Stewart went back and forth for several laps until Stewart took over the lead for good to claim the $12,000 grand prize. This was Stewart's third National ASCS win this year. Rounding out the top five were Friday's feature winner Daryn Pittman, #24, veteran Gary Wright, #9, and Jack Dover, #53.
