BARDSTOWN, Ky. - July 10. The NASRA Super Late Model Series visited Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown, Ky on Saturday and Eddie Carrier, Jr. of Salt Rock, W.V. took $5,000 back to the Mountaineer State by capturing the win in the 12th "Kentuckiana Klash", but the win wouldn't come easy.

Carrier and David Webb brought the field to the green flag, with Carrier jumping out to the early lead, followed by Mike Jewell, Webb, Tim Tungate, and Justin Rattliff. Dustin Neat went from seventh to fifth on lap two.

With Carrier holding a comfortable lead, the front five stayed the same as the first caution of the race waved on lap nine when Marty O’Neal slowed. Webb took second on the restart as Neat went by Jewell for third.  By lap 18, Webb had reeled in Carrier and was on his rear bumper.

As the field saw the halfway signal on lap 20, Webb pulled alongside Carrier exiting turn two, but Carrier would beat Webb back then, again on lap 23. With

the action up front, Neat was able to close in on Webb from his third spot. Meanwhile, Tim Tungate challenged Jewell for fourth and eventually grabbed the spot on lap 30.

Webb continued to try to find a way around Carrier for the lead until caution wave again on lap 33 when Scott James slowed on the back chute. The final restart saw Neat get by Webb exiting turn two, while Justin Rattliff squeezed back around Jewell for the fifth position on lap 34.  

Finally, Carrier led the last five circuits in his Carl Grover Motorsports owned Engines, Inc./Cox Wrecker Service/Blue Ridge Machinery and Tool sponsored #28 Rocket. Neat, Webb, Tungate, and Rattliff completed the top five.

 

Veteran Mike Jewell saw as high as second early on, but faded back to sixth by race's end.
