Lane Wins at Mt. Lawn
Knightstown driver Jeff Lane turned things up a
notch halfway through the Champion Racing Association Street Stock feature
Sunday and powered to the victory.
The CRA Street Stocks were in action at Mt. Lawn Speedway with their biggest

period when Jeff Albright came to rest against the
front straight wall.
Following the restart Lane first passed Jason Thompson with an outside pass
coming off the short turn, two laps later made an inside pass of Ronnie Rose and
a lap later moved into second with
a pass of Steve Christman.
Lane closed on leader Rick Erwin and when the two made contact in turn three,
Erwin spun and Lane grabbed the top spot.
Anderson's Ronnie Rose pulled out of competition on lap 31 while running fourth.
Thompson moved into second with ten laps remaining but was unable to challenge
Lane for the lead.
Joe Beaver, subbing for an injured Rich Boyer came home third followed by
Christman and Nick Moore.
Point's leader Scott Neal jumped into Josh Poore's car for the feature and was
running sixth after starting on the tail of the 20-car field on lap 37 when
mechanical woes forced him to the sidelines.
