Late Maneuvers Give Dacus Malden MSRA Win

Ben Shelton, MSRA

MALDEN, Mo. - June 11. Dane Dacus used a late race pass of race-long leader, Dewaine Hottinger to become the third different winner on the 2010 COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour in Friday night’s $2,000 to win event at Malden Speedway.

Despite threatening skies a great field of 33 Super Late Models entered the $2,000 to win/$300 to start event on Friday. Racey conditions greeted the MSRA competitors, and Hottinger accumulated the most passing points in heat race action to earn the JFR Graphics Pole Position for the 30 lap feature.

Hottinger was joined on the front row by Stacey Taylor before he grabbed the lead at the start of the race. As Hottinger paced the field Taylor, Jamie Dacus, and Dane Dacus began to battle for the second spot.

Hottinger maintained the top spot for the first 20 laps of the caution free feature as Dane Dacus began to apply heavy pressure for the lead. The duo  battled for the lead for the next several laps, and Dacus ultimately used a slide job to overtake Hottinger for the lead with two laps to go.

Dacus would led the final two laps to take his first COMP Cams MSRA win of the season over Hottinger, Kyle Beard, Stacey Taylor, and Wendell Wallace.

Bill Frye was the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger after advancing from his 15th starting spot to an 11th place finish.

The Quartermaster Hard Luck Award went to Brandon Smith, who saw overheating problems bring his strong run to an end.
