Goody's Dash Series results 9/5

David Hutto made it two wins in a row in the NASCAR Goody's Dash
Series Saturday by winning the 100-lapper at Langley Speedway in VA.

Robert Huffman was leading with 6 laps to go when Randy Humphrey,
about half a lap behind, had an engine let go.   Huffman got into
Humphrey's oil and, with a little help from Hutto, he looped his
Pontiac.   Huffman kept the car moving and the race stayed green;
the White House Apple Juice Pontiac stayed on the lead lap and
finished fifth.

Tim Nichols, Jake Hobgood, and B.J. Mackey followed Hutto to the
checkers.   After Huffman, the second five were Scott Weaver,
Eddie Kelley, Chris Hall, Ricky Bryant, and RASN favorite Ned Combs.

Hall, the Dash driver whom I root for the most, took his fourth
top-10 of the season and second straight, and second lead-lap finish.
Hall now trails Donnie Apple in the rookie of the year race by
5 points.    (10 points are given to the top rookie finisher in each
race, 9 for the second-highest rookie, 8 for third rookie, etc.)

Huffman lost 25 points to Hutto in the standings and now leads by
only 357 points.   With five races left, Huffman's magic number is 18.

The next Dash race is September 12 at St Augustine FL.
The season finale at Homestead FL in November will be televised on a
one-week tape delay basis on espn2.

I was at this race. it was a real slug-fest with two drivers requiring
help to get out of their wrecked cars. A LOT of machinery broken in this
one!
