There’s an old saying around race tracks; “The fastest car doesn’t always win the race”. For the ASRS Dirt Racing Series Super Late Model finale, that held true.
Brad Cross set the fast lap in qualifying and dominated the 75 lap main event, much like he has done all season on the dirt tracks. The problem was the fuel load was short for a 75 lap feature. Kris Titus was the first to run dry on lap 56.
Cross ran out of fuel on lap 57 while leading. He was followed to pit road by nearly the entire field. The lead battle then became a battle between Trevor Brownlee, looking for his first ASRS win, and Jim Foose, who had flipped his car on the opening lap. Brownlee lost the lead with seven laps to go.
Foose cruised to victory, his first on dirt. Brownlee was second, John Kennedy third, Ty Hester and Josh Walker rounded out the top five. Despite running out of fuel, Cross took home his third dirt championship this season, completing the season sweep on dirt.
