Ferguson Steals SAS East Win From Ailing Madden at Cherokee

GAFFNEY, S.C. - June 4. As the Southern All Stars East Series returned to Cherokee Speedway Friday, young Mount Hollt, N.C. driver Chris Ferguson tracked early leader Chris Madden for more than half the main event before racing by Madden out of turn two late in the 35-lap affair and grabbing his first Super Late Model win of the season.

Casey Roberts (#101) inherited second after Madden's departure, but was unable to keep #09 Johnny Pursley from grabbing it on a restart. (George Missita)

Madden held second for a couple more laps before he slowed suddenly with an overheating engine, leaving Casey Roberts to pursue Ferguson only until a late caution a few laps later.  At that point Johnny Pursley captured second from Roberts and chased Ferguson to the checkers in second ahead of Roberts, Jeff Smith, and Ross Bailes.
