Chris Combs of Isom, Ky., was moved up to third with Dustin Linville of Bryantsville, Ky., and Chris Wilson of Louisa, Ky., rounding out the top five finishers.
The night’s racing was marred by fast qualifier’s Josh McGuire’s heat-race accident that saw his No. 41 rollover several times by itself entering turn one. McGuire, who lowered the track record in time trials, was taken to a nearby hospital and then airlifted to a Huntington, W.Va., with a fractured C-1 vertabrae, according to his wife Tracy.
