What won the race: Fifth-starting Jeff Rine of Danville, Pa., overtook race-long leader and polesitter Jim Bernheisel on the white-flag lap Tuesday and captured Selinsgrove Speedway's 75th Anniversary Race for a $5,075 payday. Rine swept around Bernheisel in turns three and four and pulled away on the final lap to win by 1.159 seconds.
Quotable: "I kept rolling that bottom and rolling that bottom, and I bounced the left front off the guardrails down there about two or three times. I didn't want to show him that top too early," Rine said. "And I got to two (laps) to go and I thought, 'Man, I've gotta make something happen on this top.' "
