By Bryan Wimberley, courtesy DirtonDirt.com

KILGORE, Texas (May 30) — Polesitter Rob Litton of Alexandria, La., led all 40 laps Sunday at Lone Star Speedway for a $2,500 victory on the Southern United Professional Racing tour. Litton took the checkers 3.5 seconds ahead of home-state driver Chris Holley for his 20th career SUPR victory.

Holley, who started on the front row, finished second in a race with several drivers dropping out, allowing surviving competitors who started deep in the field to record good finishes. Kevin Sitton of Baytown, Texas, advanced four

positions to finish third while Allen Tippen of Minden, La., made a 12th-to-fourth run. Rookie Josh Danzy of Heflin, La., charged from his 21st starting spot to round out the top five and secure hard charger honors.

Litton took command at the outset while Ronny Adams, the weekend-opening winner in Sterlington, La., exited with a smoking car. Ricky Ingalls stayed with Litton early as the top two edged away from the field over the first 10 laps.

After a lap-13 for Donald Watson's engine woes, action heated up mid-pack among Tippen, Tom Lorenz and Kyle Cummings while Litton stayed out front.

The frontrunners entered lapped traffic on lap 24 and Litton built his lead to four seconds over Ingalls before a lap-33 caution for Cummings in turn four. A five-car scramble on the restart in turn halted action again as Jeff Chanler spun to the inside of turn four, collecting Ray Moore, Robbie Stuart, David Ashley and Lorenz.

Holley took second from Ingalls on the restart, and Ingalls was black-flagged for the way he answered the move. Litton was on cruise control up front and wrapped up the victory that put him in the SUPR points lead.
