It was a good night for Frankton’s
John Robbins last Saturday at Anderson
Speedway by capturing his second Thunder
Roadster win of the season.
Robbins set fast time during qualifications
turning a lap in 13.42-seconds to edge out
David Lobbia for the honors.
Brad Kendle took the early lead from the
pole position followed by Doug Dugger and
Mark Dietzen with Robbins running outside
the top five.
Lobbia moved into the third spot on the
second circuit with an inside pass of
Dietzen entering turn three. On the next lap
Dietzen pushed high in the second corner
which allowed Robbins and Marty Griffin to
move into the top five.
Kendle spun to the infield down the back
straight after Dugger made the pass coming
off the second corner. Robbins moved into
the second spot driving past the spinning
Kendle and inside of Lobbia.
On the eighth lap Robbins took the point by
getting inside of Dugger entering the third
Dugger was able to stay within shouting
distance of Robbins, but came up four-tenths
of a second short. Griffin finished third
with Lobbia and Dietzen rounding out the top
