Saturday night the owners of Highland Rim Speedway continued to show they were different. This time by bringing back a long lost moment of glory for every racer.. The opportunity if you win a race to carry that Checkered Flag for a Victory lap around the speedway after winning a Race. Matt’s Win Saturday night was a popular win and the new owners decided that he would be the first one to bring back the honored tradition of a Victory lap with the Checkered Flag.. Saturday night Matt Spurlock got everything right. He started on the pole after the inversion and essentially ran away with the race until the #1 of Chuck Adcock spins going into turn 1. When they lined the trucks up for the restart everyone expected Matt to drive off from the other competitors as he had about a straightaway lead before the caution however that was not quite the case. On the restart Matt took the green with rookie competitor Jeremy Sneed and multi time Winner Ryan Arms ready to pounce for the lead. They ran side by side for a few laps with the 98 to the front the 88 in second and the 3 in third. What was early in the evening a runaway now the 98 was hanging on for his life as it had now become a four way battle for the lead as Chuck Adcock had made his way back to fourth position and he was looking for even more.. This had shaped up into a whale of a battle for the lead. The 3 truck of Arms had gotten in 2nd and was looking for a way around the 98 truck just then the caution flys with the 68 truck of Richard Hamilton and the 33 truck of Charlie Dickens getting together.. WOW what was once a runaway for Spurlock is about to be a 3 way battle between the himself, Arms and Adcock. On the restart all three are racing hard with Adcock getting into Ryan Arms and taking the 2nd position.. Matt Spurlock wins the race with 2nd Chuck Adcock 3rd Ryan Arms 4th Preston Bores 5th Rookie Jeremy Sneed.. However after post race inspection the truck of Chuck Adcock was disqualified changing the finishing order behind Spurlock to 2nd Ryan Arms, 3rd Preston Bores 4th Jeremy Sneed and 5th Charlie Dickens.. What a great race the Pro 4′s put on and it was a GREAT win for Matt Spurlock and his race team.
