Leonard earns opening night victory at Longdale Speedway

 

By John Rittenoure - LONGDALE, Okla. (July 5, 2019) - Dusty Leonard picked up his second victory of the season in the NCRA vs Sooner Late Model Series main event Friday at Longdale Speedway after RC Whitwell was disqualified in a post-race inspection. 

 

Leonard, who won his first NCRA vs. Sooner Late Model Series event in May at 81 Speedway, raced into the lead with seven laps remaining and raced to victory in the opening day of the 5th annual America Proud event. 

 

Whitwell roared into the early lead and pulled away from the field taking the apparent victory. However, after the race Whitwell was too light when he crossed the scales and was disqualified.

 

Sooner Late Model Series defending champion Kip Hughes ran second for the first 15 laps. Following a lap 16 restart Travis Johnson, who worked his way from a seventh starting position, got around Hughes. Leonard got past Hughes and Johnson on lap 18. Hughes, who was running third, moved back into second in the closing laps leaving Johnson with third. Delbert Smith and Daniel Smith rounded out the top five after the disqualification.
