Dillon Goes Two For Two in Clash Action at 311 Fastrack
By: Alex Cummings

WINGATE, N.C. - May 9. Austin Dillon was able to wrangle his second win of the season at 311 Fastrack during the 40 lap, $4,000 to win feature event. Dillon is now two for two, taking home both races held at 311 Fastrack thus far in 2010.

When the green came out, it was the no. 3 of Dillon showing the 24 car starting field the fast way around the high-banked, half-mile at 311. Dillon was setting a blistering fast pace and was already lapping cars by lap eight. In the middle of the pack, the Blackwell brothers, Timmy and Chris, were battling hard, showing some more brotherly love to each other for the position. This time, Timmy was able to hold off Chris for the position which was a flip flop from the Fayetteville race nearly a month ago when Chris held off Timmy for the 4th position. There was great racing taking place throughout the entire field with every position from 2nd to the tail end of the field being heavily contested for as you could throw a blank over all of the drivers.

The first caution came out when the 08 of Michael Marlowe spun in turn 4 and came to a stop. On the very next lap, the A1 of Randle Chupp came to a stop on the high side of turn 4 and was unable to continue. The final caution flew on lap 30 when the 17 of Timmy Blackwell came to rest on the backstretch. On the restart, Dillon was able to yet again motor away from the field as the battle was for the second position which was held by Dennis Franklin. When the checkers were dropped, Dillon was the first car to come across the line followed by Dennis Franklin, Ricky Weeks, G.R. Smith, and Dean Bowen.

The hard charger award went to Brian Ledbetter, who was able to pass six cars during the feature event. The hard luck award went to the 421 of Anthony Sanders, who broke his second driver shaft of the night during the pace laps and was unable to continue.
