STOWE TAKES WILD FOCUS RACE BEFORE RAINS HALT MONTPELIER YOUNG GUNS

 


Montpelier, IN……..Byron Stowe of Westchester, Ohio emerged with his first USAC feature win Saturday night at Montpelier Motor Speedway, concluding a wild 25-lap feature. He took the lead on lap 24 after a four-car tangle involved the leaders and he led the last two laps in his Traxxas/Amsoil Beast. Toby Alfrey finished second ahead of Ross Rankine, Josh Staten and Dillon Welch. The accompanying Midwest Focus Young Guns feature was rained out after Sam McGhee won the heat race. In the Focus feature, Nick Drake led the first five laps, Patrick Bruns led the next 12, Drake led one and Brune then led five before incidents jumbled the standings and left Stowe as the leader on the lap 24 restart.
