ROUND THREE: C12
Dwayne Vincent Wins at Atlanta in Outlaw, Advances to next Round
Dwayne Vincent became the first winner of the first ever chase race in Outlaw Truck Series history. The first event at Atlanta in the Round of 12 brought out a large field of 29 drivers. The track was slick , especially as the tires wore off after 20 laps. There were only three cautions for the night with the last pivotal one coming out on lap 53. The front seven cars stayed out allowing others including Vincent to come in and top off for the final run. The race would finish under green and Vincent was able to hold off drivers that had to pit for fuel and fresh tires.
Newcomer Joshua Williams came home second with JD Laird 6.7 seconds back in third. Stefan Marinak and Jeff Ward rounded out the top five. Next week the series visits California for the final round of 12. The top eight with a win or points will advance to Round of 8 at Talladega the following week. Every driver in the chase will have an opportunity next week to advance in the chase.
EBERHARDT AT KANSAS
Aegis Motorports continues it's stranglehold on the Garry Mercer Trucking Cup series having secured two of the final Elite Eight championship contending spots.
Daniel Eberhardt led a race high 52 laps in route to his Chase advancing win. In a race seeing only two cautions, pit strategy played a role as tire degradation became a factor. Eberhardt elected for a short pit strategy placing him up front, one spot ahead of teammate David Washington at the race's end. The race ended under caution after a final restart with only a handful of laps to go.
The series heads to Talladega for the final race in the Round of 12.
