John Allen then moved in on Timms for the fifth spot, while Duke Whiseant, Dennie Gieber and Jamie Burford tried to sort out sixth.

Durrett Outduels SUPR Field

After suffering through two rain out the SUPR Late Model Series finally got it’s first race of the season in. Garrett Durrett and Ricky Ingalls paced the 21 field to green for the start of the 25 lap A-main. Durrett got the jump on R. Ingalls going into turn 1. R. Ingalls then was swarmed over by David Ashley on the high side and Charles Randolph on the low side as they raced three wide coming out of turn 2. Randolph would get sideways and get tagged, in turn 4, while R. Ingalls began to backslide in the field.


Durrett had built a good lead by lap 5 as the lead quintet sorted itself out, with Randolph, Jeff Chandler and Mike Brown scrapping it out for sixth. Durrett continued to inch away, while former SUPR Champion, Kenny Merchant worked his way into the top ten. Durret ran up on lap traffic giving Daniels the opportunity to reel him in by lap 12. The two were side by side on the back stretch with Daniels getting the advantage on lap 13 as the crossed flags were shown. Following Daniels and Durrett were Ashley, Ronny Adams and Rob Litton at the mid point.


Durrett wasted little time getting back inside Daniels and was able to wrestle the lead back on lap 15 with top four now running nose to tail in traffic. The lead group got stacked up in the slower cars, while Adams pulled to the infield from fourth. Daniels and Durrett were again door to door for the top spot on lap 17, but Durrett held the point. Durrett was then forced to move up top and go three wide around two slower cars on lap 19 as he began to put some distance on Daniels.


Moving to the top proved to be a good thing as Durrett was visibly faster on the high side. With five laps to go Durrett had inch again began to creep away from Daniels. As the white flag waved, Durrett had built a comfortable margin and would take the checkers without challenge.
