Josh Rice heads to victory at Wartburg Speedway.
What won the race: Tenth-starting Josh Rice of Verona, Ky., took advantage of lapped traffic to climb from third to first, getting by race-long leader Victor Lee and second-running Skylar Marlar with six laps remaining to capture the $4,000-to-win Schaeffer's Iron-Man Series-sanctioned Ducky Jones Memorial Friday at Wartburg Speedway.
Key notes: Rice won by 2.245 seconds. ... Fellow Kentuckian Victor Lee jumped to the early race lead but his momentum was stalled by two cautions in the first five laps. ... Lee caught lapped traffic allowing Cameron Marlar to erase a lead of more than two seconds. ... The lapped traffic allowed third-running Rice to close on the lead duo where he then got by both Marlar and Lee with six laps remaining. … Seventeen of the 23 starters finished the race, with 15 completing 40 laps. … Overall fast qualifier Josh Putnam of Florence, Ala., started third before fading to 10th. … Anthony White of Clinton, Tenn., had trouble on the pace lap and didn’t complete a circuit. … The Iron-Man Series made just its second visit to Wartburg.
On the move: Winner Josh Rice of Verona, Ky., rallied from 10th.
Winner's sponsors: Rice’s Rocket Chassis is powered by a Jay Dicken’s engine and sponsored by Sunesis Construction, Rice Brothers Racing, Extreme Sportswear, Brucebilt Performance, Integra and Valvoline.
