What won the race: Ending Jon Mitchell's four-race winning streak, outside front-row starter Timothy Culp of West Monroe, La., survived a tangle with a disabled car to capture his first SUPR victory since 2011 with a triumph at I-30 Speedway worth $2,000. Mitchell finished second and disputed the decision by SUPR's officials to restore Culp to the lead after he struck Tommy Surrett's car and made repairs in the pits during a red flag.

Culp has made a dozen or so SUPR starts since the beginning of the 2012 season. ... Culp dominated I-30's second heat race, winning by six seconds. ... Polesitter Cole Farmer finished 12th. ... Tommy Surrett's left-front wheel came off during pace laps of the third heat. ... Chandler Petty scratched from the consolation race. ...
