Goble Finds His Way Back to Victory Lane

Hudson, North Carolina (April 13, 2007) - Josh Goble knew his car and crew were just too good not to get it done. After suffering through what he called bad performances during the first three races of the season the former Tri-County Motor Speedway track champion found a little good luck on Friday the 13 to win the 75 lap late model stock feature Friday night.


Goble started from the Kelleys Sports & Awards pole but fell to second at the start when Donnie Carlton assumed the top spot for several laps. Goble was able to get around Carlton to retake the lead and never trailed the rest of the night.


I want to thank my dad and everyone on my crew for working so hard to get us here (victory lane), said Goble. We finally got some things figured out and it all came together for us. Hopefully this is just the first of many wins for us this year.


John Reynolds finished second with Monty Cox and Greg Shepard followed in third. Rookie driver Alley Owens showed the men she can get it done as she finished fifth in her first career start at TCMS. Carlton finished second in the race but later failed post-race inspection which dropped him to last place.


Scott Franklin collected a win in the Pepsi Super Stocks with Kevin Townsend second and Monty Cox third. Steve Parris returned to the top five after mechanical problems cost him last time out and Ricky Brown returned to action finishing fifth after missing a race two weeks ago due to damage he suffered ina hard crash on the opening night of the season.


Street Stock veteran Kevin Eby was able to get the win with Jonathan Smith second and Jeremy Pelfrey third. David Smith and Gary Dietz completed the top five.


Steven Shore won his second consecutive Fast n Furious race with defending division champion Nikki Long second. Kenneth Watts finished third with Preston Hall and Scott Bumgarner completing the top-five.


Doug Setzer won the Mini Stock race with Jeff Banks taking home top honors in the Tri-County Minis feature.


Next week the UARA-Stars return to TCMS with a 150-lap special event race. The Street Stock and Baton Tire Fast n Furious divisions will be in action as well. The UARA-Stars feature over 40 of the best late model stock drivers from the southeast who will compete for just 28 starting spots at the beautiful .400-mile speedway.
