Anderson Speedway postponed the Night of Thrills program on Saturday, August 26
due to rain showers. The Night of Thrills has been rescheduled for Sunday,
September 3, with race time tentatively scheduled for 6 p.m.
Fans did get to see one event before the rain showers. Mt. Summit’s Keith Morris
took advantage on the 12th and final lap to win the Chappy’s Rent to Own Front
Wheel Drive Figure 8 feature.
Anderson’s Nick Warner built a sizeable lead after taking the top spot from
Morris on the fourth circuit. Warner, Morris and the third place car of Randy
Owen then avoided heavy crossover traffic to maintain their positions as the
race progressed. In Warner’s case, however, it was all for naught as he went
into the infield grass on the final lap and slowed significantly with a flat
tire. Morris took advantage and passed Warner for the victory. Owen ended up
third with Joe Hart and Allen Wagner completing the top five.
