Dugger Sweeps Thunder Roadster Action

By Ken de la Bastide

(October 8, 2012) – 
It proved to be a great night for Doug Dugger in Thunder Roadster action at Anderson Speedway last Saturday as he set fast time and then went out and was victorious in the heat and fature races.

The early lead of the feature was taken by Nate Shrout after Darrell Brown made contact with the turn four wall ending his night.

Dugger was running third behind Shrout and David Lobbia, but by the fourth lap had taken over the top spot with an inside pass of Shrout entering turn three.

From there Dugger went on to win by 2-seconds over Shrout with Lobbia, Mark Livsey and Phil Jenkins rounding out the top five.

In the heat race, it took Dugger eight laps to work his way from fourth to get around Shrout with an inside move on the front straight.

The early lead was taken by Eddie Richardson, who spun all by himself on the back straight on lap three. That face the lead to Shrout followed by Lobbia and Dugger.

Dugger went outside of Lobbia coming off the fourth corner to move into the second spot and started to close on Shrout.

Following Dugger and Shrout to the checkers were Lobbia, Brown and Livsey.

During qualifications Dugger showed he was going to be a force to be reckoned with after setting fast time with a lap of 13.337-seconds. Brown was second quick with a time of 13.761-seconds with Lobbia posting a time of 13.906-seconds to claim the third fastest time.
