 Cheryl Baker-Stasiak

Shinnston, WV, August 6, 1999-
    The late model feature was won by Nolan Dalton for the seventh time this season and for his second in a row.  Dalton passed cousin Gary Dalton for the lead on the 5th lap when Gary had problems coming out of turn four.  Dalton extended his lead to nearly a straight away until caution came out on lap 18 and closed up the field.  Robbie Scott challenged Dalton but was unable to make the pass.  Scott settled for second with Danny Hamrick finishing a season high of third.  Rounding out the top ten were Scott Miles, Michael Benedum, Frank Wilson, Jr., Frank Wilson, Sr., Greg Lemley, Duke Pratt and Gary Tonkery.
    Roy Gibson of Masontown, WV  led the semi late feature wire to wire to
pick up his second career and season feature of the year.  Gibson started on
the outside pole jumped quickly to the lead.  Mark McGill finished second
after starting on the pole with Rick Burrows picking up the third position. 
Finishing in the fourth through tenth position was Duane Moreland, Tim Senic,
Scott Chenoweth, Jon Messenger, Rick Strickler, Shaun Poling, and Steve Booth
(subbing for Birch Hare).
    The UMP winner was Ron Parrish.  Parrish picked up his first win of the
season by starting on the pole and leading the race from the drop of the
green flag.  Vic Vandergrift was second and Dave Defibaugh was third.  Fourth and fifth were Shawn Davis and Jerry Teter.
    There was another repeat winner in the pure stock division.  Danny
Staggers picked up win number two in a race it seemed no one wanted to win. Every time someone challenged for the lead they ran into problems and ended up in the pits.  Staggers was followed across the stripe by Jim Byers, Paul Watson, Dave Tonkery and Jon Wamsley.
    It was the eleventh win of the season for the unstoppable Mike Simpson. 
Simpson started on the outside of the front row and lead the race wire to
wire.  Jeff Pennington challenged much of the race but just didn't have
enough to power by.  Sonny Crayton, Bruce Satterfield and Bill Robinson
rounded out the top five.
    Next week the Dwarf cars will join the action with regular racing in all
