Poore gets Street Stock victory

ANDERSON — Anderson’s Josh Poore took advantage of a restart to pass early leader Dustin Burge and capture the Street Stock feature at Anderson Speedway on Saturday.

Poore visited the Tim Thompson Nationwide Insurance Winner’s Circle for the first time this season as the Street Stock Division made its first appearance of 2014.

Burge grabbed the point on the opening lap from the third starting position when pole-sitter Fred Hopkins slipped high on the back straight, which forced James Kirby to check-up. Burge dove to the inside to take the lead.

The only caution flag waved on Lap 7 when Hopkins spun coming off the second corner.

After the restart, Poore pulled away to a comfortable lead over Burge for the win — followed by Kirby, Andrew Cook and Jason Shipp.

“Car got faster on the long run,” Poore, the 2011 track champion, said. “Dustin and James both raced me hard.”

Jerry Dane made it a clean sweep in the Front Wheel Drive Oval Division by setting fast time, capturing a win in a heat race and then driving to his second consecutive feature victory.

Dane started fourth in the feature but was able to pass Adam Lee for the point on the second lap with an inside pass entering Turn 1. Lee was able to hang close to Dane’s rear bumper until Lap 11 when he suddenly slowed.

Marshall Clark suffered a flat tire will running third after four laps.

Dylan Hoppes worked his way from the 10th starting position to move into the second space with a pass of Brandon Lee Cook with five laps remaining to finish second.

Cook finished third followed by Ryan Claborn and Jared Keller.

Nick Warner made it two consecutive wins in Front Wheel Drive Figure-8 action but not without some excitement in the crossover.
