What won the race: Dean Bowen of Whiteville, N.C., earned $5,000 for his victory in the attrition-filled Nathan Wright Memorial, an unsanctioned special event that kicked off the 2015 season at Clary's Speedway.
Key notes: Four cars were running at the finish of a rough-and-tumble race. ... Bowen's victory was his first since joining the C&R Motorsports team that in 2014 fielded equipment for Virginia's Russell Erwin. ... Preliminary races were completed Friday. ... Among other improvements to the facilities, Clary's added new clay and more banking to the racing surface over the offseason. ... Eight total divisions were in action for the two-day event. ... A red flag was needed during a support division race after a small dog riding in a tow truck got loose on the track during a caution period. ... The modified feature was halted after six laps due to rough track conditions. Leader Kyle Strickler of Mooresville, N.C., was declared the $3,000 winner.
Winner's sponsors: Bowen's C&R Racing No. 32 is a MasterSbilt by MBH Race Car sponsored by Able Auto & Cycle Insurance, TWA Concrete, Lease Wholesale and The Muffler Place.
