UDLMCS: Lloyd Wins Big at Powell Memorial

Jimmy Rouse 
 
OCALA, Fla. - June 3. Some drivers dream of February. Some dream of May. In northeast Florida, they dream of June and its Powell Memorial at Bubba Raceway Park, a tribute to the family of James Powell, who was so tragically lost on June 7th, 1995. With $10,000 on the line, it was Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. taking top honors.

  After a redraw of the top ten qualifiers through the heat races, the pole was not drawn, which handed it to Jay Johnson. Johnson, however, was not able to fire his engine until Hulk Hogan, honorary Grand Marshal for the 16th annual Powell Memorial, allowed 'The Brothers' on the frontstretch to fire those 25 engines. The Powell Memorial was shortened to 67 laps for 2011 in honor of the date of the accident, 6/7.
 
Johnson kept his #1J on point until he gave way to Lloyd on lap 17. Lloyd held on for 17 laps until David Clegg, owner of the car Lloyd drove to victory two years ago, spun in turn three. A six-lap run followed the Clegg yellow flag  
before Johnson's turn four spin caused Tyler Ivey, Christian Augspurger, Mike Nasworthy, and Roger Crouse to all pile up. Four of the five were able to continue, but the hard-charging Ivey, who had gained 14 spots after 40 laps, would not be able to keep up his good points runs at Bubba Raceway Park.

Another five-lap green run ended when Roger Crouse stopped in turn three. The restart consisted of a lead change as Dillon Wood led for two laps, but Lloyd would not be denied again as he drove back around Wood on lap 48. Six laps later, Shan Smith made a great save to not cripple anybody's race car, but the caution returned.

The lap 54 restart was called off as the green dropped, so they fell into line for the restart of the restart. The final 13 laps jumbled some of the top five up, but Lloyd was first under the checkers, right in front of the only other Powell winner in the field, Johnny Collins. Jeff Mathews finished third, while Dillon Wood faded a bit at the end to take fourth over 22nd starting Keith Nosbisch.
