Salina, OK (July 5, 2014) – Jeremy Payne of Springfield, MO withstood challenges from Ryan Gustin of Marshalltown, IA and Tony Jackson Jr of Lebanon, MO to take the checkered flag and the big $5,000 winners check Saturday night at the Salina Highbanks in Salina, OK.
Payne led from the start, but it was Gustin that made the race interesting as Gustin tried to drive underneath Payne on lap 36 entering turn one. Payne held his line as Gustin slid up into him and the two were briefly hooked together, ripping the sheet metal from Payne’s car. Caution waved and Payne never stopped on the track and retained his spot, Gustin stopped and was unable to continue.
Tony Jackson Jr of Lebanon, MO, Travis Dickes of Madison, NE, Jack Sullivan of Greenbrier, AR and Tommy Weder Jr of Woodward, OK rounded out the top five.
