Another warm and exciting evening was on tap at Three Palms Speedway in Punta Gorda, Florida. The show Saturday evening featured twin features for the Outlaw Modifieds and the Dwarf cars. The Pure Stocks also ran a 25 lap feature.
The first feature of the evening saw John Atherton from Cape Coral Florida, jump out to an early lead and hold on for the feature win in his General Elevator Solutions Dwarf Car. Larry Hubbard III was second. His father Larry Hubbard Jr. was third.
Outlaw Modified feature saw defending series champion Mike Endee jump into Ric Mills car. Endee’s car broke a distributor. Endee then jumped into Mills’ car and shook it down and raced it for the evening.
The feature saw Billy Campbell lead wire to wire in the first feature. He held off Endee who challenged him through the race only to almost spin in turn three with two laps to go. Endee held on to second. Kevin Endee finished third. Mike Patton was fourth.
Pure Stock action saw Chris Scott jump out to an early lead. J.R. Fitch from Vero Beach, Florida was working his way from the tail of the field. He grabbed the lead on the ninth circuit.
Caution flew on lap 10 when the bumper of Randy Sober came off. The yellow bunched the field. On lap 17 the yellow came out again for a spin by Ryan Meiser bunching the field again.
J.R.Fitch in his Fitch Forestry Tree Service Special held on for the win over Shane Leonard from Cape Coral, Florida. Ryan Meiser came back from his late spin to take third. Randy Sober and Chris Loney rounded out the top five.
The second Dwarf Car feature was exciting as John Atherton starting at the tail of the field charge his way to the front trying to make it two for two for the evening.
