His Grandpa Dale passed away earlier in the week. “I’ve never wanted to win a race so bad in my life,” an exhausted Gustin said after he climbed out of his winning mount. “This one’s for you, Grandpa. We love you.” Gustin led the final three laps after a spirited battle for the top spot amongst lapped traffic late to earn the $3,000 top prize. Tyler Rinken Photo

Gustin led as the white flag waved, but Scott dove underneath him coming out of turns one and two as they raced down the backstretch. Scott entered in the middle of the track entering the final corners with Gustin topside. Gustin then crossed back underneath Scott as they drag-raced to the checkers with Scott winning by 0.121 seconds at the line.

Starting outside of the front row in the 70-lap main event, Gustin led the way for the first eight laps. "The Reaper" kept the leader in sight as he reeled him back in through lapped traffic and regained the top spot on lap 29. He led the rest of the way to collect the $10,000 top prize. “They don’t get no better than a Hughes car, that’s for sure,” Gustin said of his No. 19r Hughes Racing Chassis. “They are the best there is, and I can’t thank Jason (Hughes), Steve (Karver, crew chief) and all the guys back at the shop enough. They’re the ones that make this thing happen.” Buck Monson Photo
