CRA 1 AM RACE RESULTS

I was there for a change and with a windy evening it was a crash-a-thon with several high flying thrusts and a few piles of sprinters in other incidents. The 33 cars put on a show as the feature was interesting. The delays in cleaning up the messes after crashes left the feature getting don after 10:30, but the Cowboy did a number on them. Startng on the front row with Garrett Hanson, Tony Jones went right to the lead and was passes twice befoe the checkers. The first by Garret and the last by Blake Miller, both only lastiung a few seconds. Tony weathered it all and took his second win of the season. Blake was very fast and hounded the eventual winner for over 20 laps before mysteriously running into the wall in turn one, ending his night. Mike PSencer was within rock throwing distance at the end with Danny Sheridan on his rear. Rip came form 14th to 4th for a good ride.
