Dustin Linville overtook Tim Dohm for a $4,000 payday.
What won the race: Using a mid-race restart to his advantage, third-starting Dustin Linville of Bryantsville, Ky., overtook outside polesitter Tim Dohm of Cross Lanes, W.Va., leading the remaining distance for a $4,000 payday in 201 Speedway’s Johnny Salyer Memorial.
Quotable: “That was fun racing with Tim Dohm, he’s always tough up here," Linville said. "I tried something, the crew guys telling me to go up top on one lap … it stuck and crossed over. Picked up the win. It was just a lot of fun."
Key notes: Linville has six wins on the 2015 season. ... The makeup race was slowed by four cautions. ... The first yellow flag waved on lap three when third-running Kenneth Howell spun coming out of turn two. … Audie Swartz drew a caution on lap 14 when he jumped the berm in turns one and two. … Chris Combs collided with R.J. Conley, spinning in turn four to force a caution. … Another yellow waved on lap 20 when Conley slowed on the racetrack. ... The race originally rained out as the feature began on April 2. ... Officials elected to postpone the event until Thursday, where it joined a complete Southern Nationals Bonus Series program won by Jackie Boggs of Grayson, Ky.; Linville was the runner-up. ... Drivers not returning for the makeup event were Chris Madden, Eric Wells, Austin Smith, Walker Arthur, Billy Ogle Jr., Stacy Boles and Donald McIntosh.
