Ray Moore Claims "Pelican 100" Barnburner at Ark-La-Tex Speedway

from track report

VIVIAN, La. - Feb. 26. In one of the most fiercely contested events ever at Ark-La-Tex Speedway, one that wasn't decided until the final circuit, Ray Moore captured the biggest win of his career in the first annual "Pelican 100"

If the Bayou State's mascot is a lumbering, low-flying foul that wings it only in fairly short hops, the same could not be said for the event's high-flying frontrunners who joined Moore in an all-out brawl for the top spot. Vicksburg,

Mississippi's Bub McCool had set fast time among the 48 entries and won his heat race on Friday, then was met with a ferocious duel with Alabaman Ronny Lee Hollingsworth early on. Moore, after being content with his position just inside the top five for most of the race, turned up the wick and made it a three-way fight through traffic during the 100-lapper's last quarter.

During the final circuits, Mississippi's David Breazeale made an appearance among the frontrunners, closing in on the rim-riding McCool and Moore down low.  Moore was able to seal the deal on the last lap, with McCool second and Breazeale having to settle for third. Hollingsworth faded back to seventh in the late going and opened the door for Kenny Merchant and Morgan Bagley to claim top five spots at the finish.
