Myers Gets Feature Win; Poore Claims Championship

(October 10, 2011) –  All Josh Poore had to do to capture his second Anderson Speedway track championship was to finish the feature event on Ed Martin Toyota Championship night.

Poore accomplished that feat with a second place finish to add the 2011 EDCO Welding Street Stock title to the WMDH Thunder Car crown he captured in 2004.

Josh Myers set fast time during qualifying on Sept. 24 and led the entire distance to record, surprisingly to score his only feature win of the season.

In the early stages of the feature event Myers was chased by Poore, Jimmy Kirby, Ronnie Rose and JP Crabtree.

The driver on the move was Muncie’s Tyler Marsh, who slipped underneath Crabtree entering turn three on the eleventh circuit. The only caution flag waved on lap 15 when Crabtree spun in turn two, ending his night.

On the restart Myers, Poore, Kirby, Rose and Marsh ran nose to tail, but that all changed on the 39th circuit. Marsh came off the second corner and used the high line down the back straight to blow by both Rose and Kirby.

At the checkers Myers won by .2 seconds over Poore with Marsh other .1-seconds back followed by Kirby and Rose.

Poore, who earlier in the year put together a string of eight consecutive wins in Anderson Speedway and Champion Racing Association, celebrated the championship in victory lane.

“This one was a lot harder,” he said of the title run.
