For Immediate Release
Caraway Speedway hosted Twin 50 Lap Nascar Late Model Stock features Sunday afternoon after rain on Saturday postponed the event. In the first 50 Lap feature Dan Moore of Bear Creek lead most of the laps and appeared to be the car to beat. A determined Lee Pulliam of Selma, continued to work his way to the front and late in the race passed Moore for the lead and the win. Ryan Wilson of Randleman, Mack Little III of Kernersville, Robert Tyler of Roswell, GA, Jay Payne of Lexington, Randy Benson of Rockingham, Matt Bowling, Eric Winslow and Brad Cox rounded out the top ten finishers of the 23 car field.
In the second 50 Lap event the controversy began over halfway into the race when Pulliam was penalized for beating the leader (Wilson) across the start/finish line on a restart. Pulliam is brought down pit road under green and comes back out on the track in the 18th position. He begins driving the wheels off the car and making risky moves, including several three and four wide passes. Cars began to wreck and cautions continue to be displayed. Pulliam used the re-start cone several times to advance his position and eventually he is beside of race leader Wilson. Caraway goes back to the last completed green flag lap, thus causing the race to continue for multiple laps. Once the green flag is displayed the whole field has to cross the start finish line before the caution is displayed to be a complete lap. Lap 48 continued to be multiple cautions causing the field to have to be lined back up to the last green flag lap. Several cars kept having to be moved back to the last completed lap (47). In the end Wilson captured his second win of the season, while Pulliam went home with a disappointing 12th place finish and a wrecked race car. Little, Bowling, Moore, Tyler, Winslow, Cox, Benson, Pete Stewart of Archdale and Thomas Scott rounded out the top ten finishers.
