Pat Standley brought his “A Game” on Saturday Night against a very strong field of Chet’s Auto Service Pure Stocks. 24 cars started the 20 Lap Feature Event and Standley bested them all in qualifying with a new track record of 18.810 seconds! He also proved his driving skills as he started 10th in an invert which put a lot of fast cars in front of him. Just 3 cautions slowed the race in spite of the racing going 3-wide, lap after lap. Bob Elliott appeared to be cruising to victory after taking the lead on lap #12. On lap #19 the final caution came out and that set up a Green/White/ Checkered Flag finish with the Owosso Option being utilized. The final turn of the race started the cameras flashing as the two racers came to the stripe side-by-side with Elliott on the bottom and Standley on the top. Standley nipped Elliott for the win! Jeff Roethlisberger finished 3rd, Todd Binkley finished 4th and Dan Gokee finished 5th. Leroy Whitaker, Bob Robinson and Ron Hart took the Heat race wins.
