MARS: Stovall Gets
First Series Win at Thunderbird
Muskogee, Okla. - April
1. Before a standing room only crowd, Jesse Stovall of Galena, Mo. led all 30 laps enroute to the $3,000 payday
at Thunderbird Speedway.
Stovall started to the outside of pole-sitter Brad Looney of Republic, Mo.
Looney had the advantage going into turn one on the start of the race, but

Jon Kirby and #77 Justin Asplin race for position at Thunderbird.
Stovall was able to use the high side momentum and pull around him coming off turn two. With the win, Stovall
recorded his third feature win with the MARS Series.
Looney stayed with Stovall for much of the race and finished second. Springfield, Missouri's Terry Phillips and
Jeremy Payne finished third and fourth respectively. Tucson native R.C. Whitwell finished fifth in the final
Tony Jackson Jr. (#56) raced to a very respectable sixth place at Thunderbird
Speedway. (Ron Mitchell)
