    Wheatland, MO (May 8th, 2010) - As Lucas Oil Speedway celebrated their fifth season of racing action and hosted the extremely popular Inaugural Business Expo on the Midway, it was Tommy Cordray, Jesse Stovall, and Sundance Keeper celebrating at the end of the night as all three scored feature wins. A large crowd jammed the grandstands in addition to the more than 30 vendors that were on hand to promote their products and services. Coyote 107.9 and morning DJ "Rounder" entertained the crowd with a live radio remote and on air fun throughout the evening.

    Tommy Cordray, the 2009 Lucas Oil Speedway Late Model Track Champion, towing all the way from Browning, Missouri scored an extremely popular win in the TNT Quick Shop Late Models. Cordray utilized the top side of the racetrack to work his way to the front from his 5th starting spot, eventually overtaking Chris Morelock at the midway point of the main event. It was only the second night out for Cordray in his brand new MastersBilt Chassis. Morelock held on in his white #25 to take the second spot with his Show-Me/IMCA Spec Engine powered car. Late Model Rookie Ben Solberg held on to third at the finish after leading the field to the green flag from the pole position. Veteran Joe Walkenhorst from Lee's Summit, Missouri charged all the way from his 12th starting spot to finish 4th in the final rundown. Local Favorite Harlen Kennedy from Wheatland, Missouri was right on his heels maneuvering from 11th to fifth at the finish.

    Jesse Stovall out of Galena, Missouri continued his absolute domination of Southwest Missouri A-Modified racing by scoring his third win in a row in the Pitt's Homes A-Modifieds. Shawn Nations put up a valiant fight but came up just short crossing the AAA Finish line in second at the finish. Laquey, Missouri's David Hendrix also was in hot pursuit of Stovall and Nations but had to settle for third at the finish. Lebanon, Missouri's Kris Jackson continues to serve notice that he is ready to contend for wins with another strong fourth place finish, while Fair Grove's Mickey Burrell raced from his 10th starting spot to take the final Top-5 spot.

    Sundance Keeper drove his uniquely numbered 6-7/8 to the win in the Carson's Corner Napa Factory Stocks but it didn't come easy as Keeper had to hold off two of the best in the Factory Stock business, Kenny Carroll and Burl Woods. Carroll out of Camdenton, the defending Lucas Oil Speedway Track Champion finished 2nd with Woods taking 3rd at the finish. Springfield, Missouri's Chris Darnell started outside the front row and held on for 4th at finish while Chris Tonoli out of Hermitage had a very strong run to hold down the fifth spot in the final rundown.

Kids ages 10 and under will receive a FREE ticket to Big Surf and Gil will be on hand giving out FREE t-shirts and posing for pictures!
