Harris Passes With 3 To Go For Catawba Valley 150 LM Win

Hudson, NC (June 11, 2004) - The Catawba Valley 150 Friday night at Tri-County Motor Speedway went down in history with Rock Harris in victory lane.  A field of 26 cars came to Tri-County to bid for the chance to take home the $3000.00 payday for the Tucson Late Models and Harris was the one to collect the check.

Dexter Canipe, Jr. started from the pole and led the first 147 laps, but with only three laps remaining and the large crowd on its feet and cheering, Harris made the pass for the lead.  There were numerous cautions, including one red flag on lap 139 for a five car pile-up in turns one and two, which collected Kyle Mansch, Nathan Dellinger, Bill Cassavaugh, Mitch Walker and Andy Loden.

Loden had been among the front runners, along with Nick Waycaster.  Like Loden, Waycasters luck went bad with only a few laps remaining.  Loden was caught up in the spin and Waycaster's engine went sour while holding a strong fourth place.  In the end Canipe would cross the line in third, but was not able to make it through post race inspection and was disqualified.  Jay Gerst moved up to second with Mark Setzer third, Josh Goble fourth and John Reynolds, Jr. fifth.  Tim Weaver was sixth, Steve Woody seventh, Kyle Mansch eighth, Kris Bowen ninth and Tony Combs tenth.

Jeff Hagaman once again dominated the Super Sport event with Mark Livingston second, Donnie Buckner third, Marshall Sutton fourth and Kevin Dill fifth.

Randy Canipe led flag-to-flag to take the win the Mini Stock feature with Dennis Trviette second, Rickie Dennie third, Scott Whittington fourth and Grant Wimbish fifth.

Street Stocks had a new winner as Gary Ledbetter took the win in his second race of the season.  Ledbetter is a veteran from another speedway and comes with several championships behind him.

Kevin Eby was second with Marshall Sutton third, Jesse LeFevers fourth and Jeff Campbell fifth.

All results for the Super Sport, Street Stocks and Mini Stocks are pending laboratory reports on tire compounds.  The speedway's management expects to release official results by Wednesday or Thursday.

Stephen Clippard made it two in a row in the Fast & Furious division for front wheel drive vehicles.   Adam Hatton was second.

Next Friday night TCMS will host Twin 30-lap Super Sport features.  All other divisions will have regular features.  Coming June 25th will be the famous Crash and Bash Night.  For more information contact the speedway.
