 Allen Earl

TAZEWELL, Tenn. - Sept. 23. After being rescheduled earlier in the season due to rain the National All Stars Racing Association (NASRA) was greeted with cool temperatures and a gusty fall wind.  Vic Hill raced to a relatively unchallenged win in the event.

New track qualifying record holder Steve Smith led the field to green, but from early on, the race belonged to Hill.  On lap 11, just behind the leaders, Bryan Hendrix tangled with Travis Fultz and the resulting contact send Fultz first into the outside wall. Fultz then rolled over and back into the inside wall, where the car came to rest on top of the wall.  Fultz and crew were angry, but luckily he was uninjured and walked away.

On the restart, with Hill leading Smith and Jason Trammell, another driver took a wild ride.  Arnie Fields found his #01 car in the outside wall of turn two after also flipping.He too was uninjured. 

 

The race was restarted and Hill moved out to a four-second lead and found out his car could run in basically any groove he chose.  Smith and Trammell at this point did well to just hang on. At lap 28, no one had really put up a challenge, but after a lap 28 restart, Bryan Hendrix got third from Trammell and set out after Smith to grab second.  On lap 39, Hendrix tangled with a lapped car and the result was four more cars sustaining damage, including Trammell and Terry Wolfenbarger. who had been running in the top five most of the night. 

 

With Hendrix retaining second, the eight remaining cars were lined back up.   Hill held them off and got yet another Tazewell Speedway victory.
