Goble Claims Win at Tri-County

by Pat Simmons

Hudson, NC (September 9, 2005) - Tri-County Motor Speedway has been billed as the place "Where Action is the Attraction."  Friday night the speedway lived up to its name in fine fashion.     Josh Goble picked up the win after Dennis Gallion led most of the event, but with three laps to go, was tagged by Jimmy Doyle and his chances for his first win of the season ended.


Gallion started on the front row with Matt Leicht and was able to get the jump at the green and was able to maintain the lead until lap 47, when he was passed by Goble.  Still holding onto second, Gallion came under yellow flag conditions with the rest of the field when Bobby DeCola took a wild ride down the backstretch.


DeCola was able to restart, but then on the next restart his night was finished when he tangled with Jacky Buckner.  Another attempt at a restart was made after the track was cleared and on this restart Gallion was recipient of a little bumper tag from Jimmy Doyle and that was the end of his hopes for a great finish.  Gallionís car was towed to the pits, while Doyle was sent to the rear of the field as a penalty.


With all that action going on behind Goble he was able to go for the checkered flag and Ricky Bryant took home second.


Kevin Leicht was third with Nick Waycaster fourth and Bill Cassavaugh posted in the fifth position.  John Reynolds was sixth and Doyle came back in three laps for seventh.   Jackie Buckner was eighth, Toby Hopkins ninth and Stan Robinson tenth.


In the Pepsi Super Stock Challenge, it looked as though Monty Cox was going to pick up the win after a couple of weeks without his primary motor, but Scott Franklin had other ideas.


Cox took the lead at the drop of the green, but on lap 24 of the 30 lap race, Scott Franklin battled his way past Cox.  The pair put on a show for the fans as they battled side-by-side for several laps, keeping fans on their feet.


Franklin made the pass, while Cox brought home second with Marshall Sutton third. These top three are in a tight points battle for the championship.  Allen Buzze posted fourth in his first race, while Brian Stahl was fifth.


Kevin Eby was able to pick up the win in the Hudson Superette Street Stocks and was able to celebrate with family, including his infant daughter in victory lane.     Jesse LeFevers was second with Kevin Townsend third, Josh Burchette fourth and Mike Hatton fifth.


In the Mini Stock feature, A.J. Sanders came out on top while George Anen was second, Doug Setzer tird , Archie Sanders fourth and David Pennell was fifth.


Wayne Harrington was able to get past Jeff Poston to go for the win in the Fast and Furious feature.  Jody Church was second with Poston third, Stephen Clippard fourth and Adam Hatton fifth.


The Tri-County Minis were in rare form as Drew Bagwell took the lead at the drop of the green, but Jeff Banks came on strong and came to the front.  The top four battled door-to-door but when the field came around for the final lap Jeff Banks was leading the pack, while Ben Leffler was second, Drew Bagwell fourth and Bethany  Bagwell fifth.


Next Friday night Road Rage will return with racing in all other divisions.  For more information call 726-6600 or visit the speedway.
