NASRA: Jewell Repeats
"Kentuckiana Klash" Triumph at Bluegrass
BARDSTOWN, Ky. - July 2. Bluegrass Speedway presented the 13th annual "Kentuckiana Klash" for the National All
Star Racing Association (NASRA) on Saturday, and Mike Jewell of Scottsburg, Ind. became the first repeat
winner in the Late Model division at Bluegrass Speedway for 2011 by taking the win in the $3,000 to win event.
Victor Lee led the start of the 30-lap event with fourth starting Jewell running second by lap three, followed
by Tim Rivers, Terry English, and Steve Barnett. Lee Devasier slid past Barnett one circuit later, only to draw the
first caution of the race when he suffered a flat right rear tire.
The restart saw Jewell fire a slider on Lee exiting turn two to grab the race lead, while Rivers, English, and
Barnett remained third through fifth. The top five remained the same as the leaders were about to catch traffic
when Dennis Roberson slowed to a stop in turn one. With the restart, Jewell pulled away a bit from Lee,
only to have Lee run Jewell back down in traffic with five laps remaining, but Jewell would hold off the challenges
of Lee to pick up the win.
