Gorby gets first MDLMS victory at Salina

Smith followed Gorby to the finish in the runner-up position with Earl Kinderknecht of Salina, third. Dave Conkwright of Manhattan, Kan., was fourth with Kelly Dunn, also of Salina, rounding out the top five finishers.
Jimmy Segraves of Valley Center, Kan., led the early portions of the race after starting from the pole, but let Smith slip by for the lead. Segraves later spun while running second. He ended up 16th.
