What won the race: For the second straight evening, Terry Phillips of Springfield, Mo., led every lap, topping seventh-starting Tad Pospisil of Norfolk, Neb., in the finale of the King of the Hill at Junction Motor Speedway.

Quotable: "We always got confidence," stated Phillips. "We just had a little bad luck and just wasn't as good as (Stovall) sometimes. I've been around this long enough to know if you get rolling and hopefully get a little luck on our side, we can get these cars a little faster."
