Leonard Dominate in NCRA Late Model Stop at 81 Speedway!
Park City, Kansas – September 2, 2017 - Dusty Leonard utilized his outside front row starting position to his advantage as he took the lead at the start and never looked back to claim the National Championship Racing Association of Park City, Kansas presented by Precise Racing Products crate late model feature victory Saturday night at 81 Speedway in Park City.
Jimmy Segraves and Leonard started on the front row for the twenty-lap feature with Leonard grabbing the lead as the green flag fell. Segraves, Chris Kratzer, Kip Hughes and Damian Patocka were the top five after the first lap with Segraves setting a torrid pace out front.
Lap two would see Kratzer dispose of Segraves for the runner-up position but not even a lone caution during the feature for a Jeremy Bishop spin on lap thirteen could slow Leonards pace as he would go on and cruise to his first series victory of the season and third career with NCRA.
Kratzer settled for second and is now tied with season-long points leader Delbert Smith for the top spot in the point standings. Segraves settled for third while Dustin Bolster and Delbert Smith rounded out the top five.
The two, eight lap heat races for the fourteen-car field were won by Leonard and Segraves.
The NCRA Crate Late Model Series will be back in action on Saturday night, September 16, as they make their final appearance of the season at Thunder Hill Speedway in Mayetta.
