Rick Smith Sweeps the Late Model Main Events!
Late Model Division (Twin 40 #1)There were 23 Late Models on the track for the first of two 40 lap Late Model main events. The first LM A Main was caution filled. Contact on the track resulted in plenty of sparks, smoke and twisted metal. #31 Rick Smith, #42 Ronnie Hults, #78 Darren Crocker, #12 Bruce Yackey & #54 Joe James Jr lead the pack as Hults made a furious sprint on the outside of turn 2 passing Smith for the lead.
From there it was a fender to fender drag race between Hults & Smith with Yackey consistently intervening for the top spot. After a yellow flag, Yackey and Smith flew ahead to lead the pack with Hults close behind. The 1st place drag race continued between Yackey, Smith and Hults as they came close to running 3 wide along the main stretch. Suddenly, Hults punched it and took back the lead!
Soon after, in a devastating turn of events, Hults spun 180 degrees coming around turn 3 and a pile up ensued.

#21 Mike Bowen took the pole with #54 Joe James Junior on the outside. Rick Smith and Avants sat pretty in row two with an eager Yackey inside row three.
On the first lap, Joe James Jr took an early lead only to be passed by Avants. Rick Smith vied for the lead but Avants kept him at bay. A spin out on the track resulted in a yellow flag and a double file restart. Avants maintained the lead followed by Rick Smith, Joe James Jr and Bruce Yackey.
