Rich Boyer Collects CRA Street Stock Victory; Pitts and Teepe Also Victorious
For the second week in a row Rich Boyer held off all challengers to capture the Champion Racing Association Street Stock feature at Anderson Speedway on Saturday.

Boyer inherited the lead on lap three when bad luck again struck Ronnie Rose when a mechanical problem sent Rose to the pits on the first of seven caution periods.

Rich Segvich led the first lap from the pole position following an invert of the top 12 qualifiers. Rose took the lead with an outside pass coming off the fourth corner and one lap later Rose’s car started spewing blue smoke.

That gave Boyer the lead and he remained on the point for the next 72 laps, he was first chased by Segvich and Jason Thompson. Segvich’s car broke on lap 36 while he was still running second.

Scott Neal, who set a new CRA track record during qualifying, ran in the top ten and near the halfway point started a charge to the front. Neal got inside Josh Myers on lap 31 to take fifth.

Neal then got inside Brian Hopkins for the third spot on lap 34 but then slipped on lap 40 which gave Hopkins back the position.

Then on lap 50 Neal got into the back of Hopkins car on the back straight. Hopkins got loose and was passed by Neal, Josh Poore and Jeff Lane.

Lane passed Neal for the third spot on lap 65.

At the finish Boyer won by .355 seconds over Thompson followed by Lane, Neal and Poore.
Nick Moore had an impressive run starting 20th in the 30 car field and driving to a tenth place finish.

Chris Teepe saw a big lead evaporate following a caution flag on lap eight and then held off fast qualifier Gary Bragg Jr. to claim his second Front Wheel Drive oval feature win of the season.

Bragg senior and junior made an inside pass of Jared Keller on the third lap to grab the second and third.

On the restart Bragg Jr., was able to get inside his father to claim second and closed on Teepe, but with three laps remaining tried to slingshot into the lead entering turn one and lost all the momentum when his car got loose.

Teepe won by .38 second followed by Bragg Jr., Bragg Sr., Frank Gasho and Don Ellis II. Kokomo based Mad Cow racing claimed the second, third, fourth and sixth positions with Jerry Dane just missing a top five finish.
