What won the race: Jesse Stovall of Galena, Mo., took control on the opening lap and dominated the MARS West main event at Longdale (Okla.) Speedway, leading flag-to-flag for a $3,000 payday. Stovall pulled away in the second half of the 35-lapper, winning 8.557 seconds ahead of series points leader Tony Jackson Jr.
Quotable: "This place is fun. I've always (thrived) on the top sides of racetracks like this, big and wide," Stovall. "Just all out and get it on."
Key notes: Stovall lapped all but six cars. Fourteen cars finished the race. ... Stovall enjoyed a 10-second lead over Randy Timms with three laps remaining. ... Runner-up Tony Jackson Jr. regained the second spot from Timms in the race's waning moments. ... Jackson was running second early when he had a flat right-front tire on a restart, forcing him to the pits and to the tail of the lead lap before he rallied back into contention. ...Modified driver Tanner Mullens of Wichita, Kan., drove a Gressel Racing Late Model, the ride Arizona driver Ricky Thornton Jr. recently gave up. ... Brandon Mitchell and Shannon Scott were early retirees. ... Friday's Longdale race rained out. ... The event was held in conjunction with the Walleye Rodeo.
