Ken de la Bastide: Chase coming down to the wire


Mark Lambert passed Danny Trent on Lap 45 and went on to win by 2 seconds.

It was Lambert’s first career win at Anderson Speedway.

Curtis Chapman, the 2013 Thunder Car champion, recorded his ninth win of the season with nifty bump and run move on “Mr. Enduro” Johnny Magee on Lap 53. Just when it appeared Chapman was going to cruise to the victory the caution flag waved when Earl Adams II made contact with the Turn 2 wall on Lap 82.

Chapman was not to be denied the victory and pulled away from Magee and Trent Gossar.

Three drivers in the Thunder Car division all broke the existing track record set by Chapman on June 8 at 14.681 seconds. Chapman set the new mark at 14.459 seconds followed by Gossar at 14.511 seconds and Magee with a lap of 14.594 seconds.

Indianapolis driver Don Gallaher posted his first win at the speedway by using slower traffic to pass Nick Warner on Lap 41 and then weaving his way through traffic to win by .221 seconds.

The drivers set the bar pretty high for the final event of the season “Turkey Bash” on Nov. 30 when the Street Stock division drivers will be competing in a 100-lap race.
