rebelracewriter Posted June 22, 2004 Report Share Posted June 22, 2004 Gould Grabs Gold in Mod Main The 20 lap IMCA Modified main had William Gould and Steven Carter on the front row. Gould quickly grabbed the lead, but Trevor Egbert spun between turns 1-2. On the next try Gould again jumped out front, with National points leader Henry Witt and GW Egbert side by for second and Charles Lamb wheel to wheel with Cody Williamson for fourth. Witt and Williamson both completed their passes on lap 2 as Witt closed in on Gould for the lead. Williamson was able to run down GW Egbert as the two battled on lap 6. By lap 8 the top two had started to get away from the field and coming to the crossed flags it was Gould, Witt, GW Egbert, Williamson and Pat McGuire in the top five. The races only yellow came on lap 11 for spin in between turns 3-4 by James Holder. McGuire was able to get past Williamson for fourth shortly after going back to green, as Gould and Witt got ahead again. Lap 13 saw the Glick brothers, Chase and Chris running side by side for sixth, with dad nervously pacing the front stretch fence. With five to go, Gould had a little breathing room with two car length advantage over Witt, who held a big gap back to GW Egbert. On lap 16 the Glick boys were now three wide with Keith Green, as they all swapped the sixth position back and forth. Witt was able to creep back in on Gould, but got hung up behind a lap car as the white flag flew. At the checkers it was Gould in his GRC Chassis taking the win.

Sexton got sideways causing a traffic stack-up with Ritchie Robins brushing the wall. By lap 4 Chris Cogburn had made his way up to seventh, battling with Brandon Dulock, after starting in last row. Buzbee had built a big lead over Roy Ewing only to have a caution erase his lead when Sexton spun Dave Stewart and received the black flag. On the restart Ewing and Cogburn fought wheel to wheel for second, while Keith White got by Dulock for fifth. Cogburn got around Ewing on lap 7 and started to pressure Buzbee for the lead. Ewing closed back in on the lead duo as the race reached halfway. Cogburn grabbed the point as the crossed flags were shown, followed by Buzbee, Ewing, Sid Kiphen and White. As Ewing slipped into second Buzbee fell into a three scrap for third with Kiphen and White. White continued his march to the front grabbing third and moving along side Ewing for second as the top three ran nose to tail with five to go. Brandon Stewart spun in turn 4 to bring out the yellow before completion of the 15th circuit. The team cars of Ewing and Kiphen ran side by side on the restart, with Kiphen getting the advantage. Kiphen then challenged White for second as they ran door to door on lap 16. White was trying to get under Cogburn for the lead at the same as he got along side in turns 1-2. With Kiphen still on the high side, white on the low fell back into the clutches of Kiphen for second. White broke free of Kiphen, who lost ground when he slid high out of the groove. White used the momentum to dive inside Cogburn as the white flag waved. Once White cleared Cogburn he was able to inch ahead and snatch the victory in his Tracy’s Auto Sales/Smileys Chassis SIMS Limited Modified Main 1 17x Keith White 2 28 Roy Ewing 3 5 Chris Cogburn 4 87 Justin McCoy 5 77 Jody Buzbee 6 58 Sid Kiphen 7 47 Brandon Dulock 8 771 Sam Sovey 9 16 Dillon Pike 10 55 TJ Green 11 3 Dave Stewart 12 45 Eric Tomlinson 13 1B Brandon Hood 14 75 Edward Schmidt 15 06 Brandon Stewart 16 1 Ritchie Robins Jeff Sexton DQ Rough Driving With the track fairly baked out after the ASCS Sprint car main, the IMCA Stock car main looked more like a Stevie Nicks video with all the spinning going on. At the start of 16 car 20 lap event, rookie Brandon Guerin took the point from the pole, while Chad Estes and Jeff Sustaire worked their way forward through the carnage. Estes and Sustaire fought door to door several times on the restarts before Estes got the spot. Estes dove inside Guerin on lap 7 restart to grab the point on lap 8 followed by Sustaire. At halfway the top five were Estes, Sustaire, Benji Kirkpatrick, Guerin and David Khoury. In the final laps Kirkpatrick tried the high groove to get past Sustaire, while Cory Teakell made the pass on Guerin for fourth. Sustaire was able to hold off Kirkpatrick, while Estes was getting the win his Central Texas Auto Pool/Midwest Motorsports/Estes Racing/SCS Chassis.
