Poore repeats in Street Stock 200

Anderson driver dominates by leading 177 circuits

ANDERSON — In his first start of 2013, Anderson’s Josh Poore dominated the biggest race of the year for the CRA Street Stock Division at Anderson Speedway on Saturday.

Poore started on the outside of the front row alongside quick qualifier Jeff Lane. He chased Lane for the first 22 laps and then grabbed the lead with an outside pass on the front straight.

He held off Lane during the course of nine restarts to take home the $3,000 first-place money. Poore led 173 of the 200 laps win the event. A year ago Poore led all 200 laps to win event.

With Poore in control of the point, there was tight racing behind him for second place between Lane, Josh Myers, Bret Miles Jr. and Dustin Burge.

Lane pressed Poore on the final restart with 11 laps remaining but was never able to get alongside on the outside. Poore won by .574 of a second.

Myers finished third with Miles and Burge, who started 15th in the field, rounding out the top five.

Poore has not been competing in 2013 following the birth of his son.

There were 21 of the 32 starters still running at the finish with 14 cars running on the lead lap.

The race was slowed only eight times for a total of 46 laps.

David Reynolds used the outside line to climb through the field in the IOFS SuperKart feature, but then moved to the inside to pass Dustin Kares with six laps remaining to record the victory.

Kares took the lead from Kenny Smith on Lap 6 with an outside move on the front straight. By the 10th lap, Reynolds was running third, after starting 10th, and moved into the second position with a power move on the outside in Turn 3.

The second caution flag waved on Lap 17 for a three-kart tangle in Turn 4. On the restart, Reynolds fell right behind Kares and used the draft to slingshot into the lead.
