A Main Race

The A-Main Race was delayed when the #01 truck died entering the track. That driver moved to the #02 truck and the race start order was adjusted. With the inversion pill the order of the top eight trucks was inverted. Morgan started in 7th place. The race began with some 3-wide bumping in the first turn that left parts on the track and resulted in a full restart.

The #88 and the #14 had both passed the #3 In lap 7 Mackvader was hit first in the rear and then in the side by Allen Boles #3 driving Morgan into the wall of Turn 4 and then over the wall into the catch fence. The #3 rode the wall down the straight away. Both drivers were okay, but both trucks were done, as was the track. The race night ended with a massive clean up to follow.
