Junior Franks Picks Up First Win at Tri-County

By Pat Simmons

Hudson, NC (August 19, 2005) - Junior Franks picked up his first win of the season in the Late Model Stock event at Tri-County Motor Speedway Friday night.  Franks passed Jimmy Doyle with only seven laps to go, but leading the final lap is the one that counts.


Doyle and Franks, who started fourth, were one-two after the drop of the green and Doyle was able to gain an advantage, but tire problems slowed his lap times and worked to Franks’ advantage.


The win was the first for Franks at TCMS, but definitely not the first in his career.  He has been racing for over 20 years and has picked up countless wins.


With Franks taking the checkers and Doyle second, Josh Goble was third, Nick Waycaster fourth and Jacky Workman fifth.


Rock Harris was sixth, Jimmy Rice seventh, John Reynolds eighth, Bobby DeCola ninth and Jackie Buckner was tenth.


Scott Franklin is on a roll in the Pepsi Super Stock Challenge ranks and picked up another win after starting in the seventh starting spot. Kaleb Pressley was the runner-up in second with Monty Cox was third, Brian Stahl fourth and Russell Goforth fifth.


In the Hudson Superette Street Stocks, Jesse LeFevers picked up another win with Josh Burchette second, Ernie Harris third, Kevin Eby fourth and Bill Lett fifth.


A.J. Sanders claimed another trophy in the Mini Stocks with Hank Hefner second after the two put on a great battle. Randy Canipe was third, Scott Whittington fourth and Archie Sanders was fifth.


In the Fast and Furious, Jeff Poston got the win after chasing David Hasson for most of the race and making several challenges for the lead.


Hasson had to settle for second with Stephen Clippard was third, Kenny Nix fourth and Kenny Watts fifth.


The Tri-County Minis had an exciting finish as Jeff Banks picked up the win as Travis Cook and Tony Taylor came sliding across the finish line facing the wrong direction.


Matt Sizemore was second, Cook was third, Tim McRae fourth and Bethany Bagwell had her best finish so far in fifth.
