What won the race: Third-starting Brian Diveley of Springfield, Ill., held off fellow second-row starter Justin Reed of Collinsville, Ill., in a photo finish for a $1,200 victory on the Midwest Big 10 Series at Jacksonville Speedway. Ryan Little led early in the race but settled for third behind Diveley and Reed.
Key notes: Diveley became the tour's fifth winner in five races. ... Fourth-running Scott Schmitt hit the turn-four wall with seven laps remaining. ... Jacksonville was the final originally scheduled race on the rain-hampered series, but it's unclear if it's the season finale. ... Entering Friday, the series had completed just four events and had five ruined by Mother Nature. ... Among rainouts was a May 8 series visit to Jacksonville.
On the move: Sixth-row starters Greg Kimmons and Steve Lance Jr. finished fourth and fifth.
Winner's sponsors: Diveley's No. 11D is sponsored by Bill Matthews Auto Body & Powder Coating, Checkered Flag Graphics, Matzker Farms and Wallbaum Development
