some distance between himself and the rest of the 24 car starting field as he
led for 46 laps in spite of three cautions. Meanwhile Andrews, who started
sixteenth had worked his way into the top 5 when a caution came out for the MCR

between Blair, Rick Isadore and Dick Barton to move into second but was
running out of laps to catch Hoffman, Lap 44 had the final caution of the race
thrown as The MACS Point Leader Geisler spun out in turn two. That made it a
drag race to the checkers. Andrews chased Hoffman for two laps before making
the pass to the front on lap 46. Once by Andrews held off
Hoffman to win by a car length. The win was his fourth of the year and third
straight, giving him 11 career MACS Feature victories. In victory lane He
