NASCAR Goody's Dash Series points lead in another 18 races.
Unfortunately there's only 4 races left in the season :-)
Hutto captured his fifth victory of the Dash season Saturday at the
Gold Star Dodge Dealers 100 at the half-mile oval in St Augustine FL.
Huffman was third, just behind B.J. Mackey and 3 seconds behind Hutto.
Hutto gained 15 points on Huffman. At last week's race he gained 25.
Huffman's 344-point edge means that if he has an average finish of
23rd in the last 4 races, he's clinched the championship.
How 'bout we call it already clinched?
Ricky Bryant and Scott Weaver rounded out the top five at St Augustine.
RASN favorite Ned Combs was 10th.
Donnie Apple was eighth and increased his rookie of the year lead over
Chris Hall (13th).
The best sponsor in the series has to be George Crenshaw's.

The next NASCAR Goody's Dash Series race is Saturday 9/19 at
Hal Goodson became the first two-time winner in 1998 NASCAR Slim Jim
All Pro Series competition Sunday at the Kroger/Greased Lightning 100
at Memphis Motorsports Park.
Ummm...Hal's the only driver with 2 wins. Freddie Query has 7 :-)
Goodson led from lap 31 to the end except for lap 81, when Bobby Gill
pulled even and led at the stripe. Goodson pulled ahead in the next
turn and held off Gill's hard charges in the last 19 laps to win by
a third of a second.
Query was third and now trails Goodson by 21 points with 4 races left.
It was a good weekend for the Mike Cope team. Cope finished fourth
in his second start of the season after being fired from his BGN ride.
The team's primary car, driven by Cope's former All Pro crew chief
David Moyer, wound up 11th after starting a surprising second.
Ronnie Burkett led laps 8-30 after taking the point from pole sitter
Goodson, but then Burkett was swept up into a crash and lost 15 laps
in the pits for repairs. Burkett lost ground to Scott Kilby in the
race for rookie of the year.
It was also a rough day for Steven Christian, who entered the race
still with a chance to join Goodson and Query in the points chase.
Christian finished 22nd and fell behind Derrick Gilchrist (5th)
for 3rd in the standings; for all intensive purposes it's now a
two-horse race for the championship.
The NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series next races at Winchester IN for
its annual Roger Holdeman Memorial Winchester 400 marathon Sept. 27.
