Congratulations to Robert Rux and the 88 team for this long awaited win.  Robert has experienced hard luck over the past four years and now he has won two races in a row, taking home the Main Event trophy.  Looks like his car and his driving is improving.

Robert timed in at 15.120, holding his breath for fastest time-in when Fulmer car 75 came out and took the fastest time-in with a 15.107.   Congratulations Bob Fulmer for the fastest time-in for the night.

It was one of the most intense races of the season. In fact, for the last race of the season it turned out to be a race that brought all the fans to their feet no matter which car or driver they were cheering for.  

The last lap of the race turned out to be so unnerving fans didn’t know if they should stand up and cheer or hold their breath for the outcome.  The red flag dropped after the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cars passed the checkered flag.  Mike Clother car 7 came in 2nd and Kyten Jones car 03 came in 3rd.  Kyten lead the most laps of the Main Event.  Good for you young rookie!
