James grabs spotlight at Speedway

Racing veteran Markey James stepped into the spotlight at the Southern Oregon Speedway on Saturday night.

The long-time driver from Jacksonville led from the outset and never looked back in winning the Littrell Auto Parts Dirt Modified feature. The win was the first of the season for James. Tom Glover ran a strong second but was never able to take a serious run at the lead James built early in the race.

Frank Word III returned to victory lane in the Les Schwab Pro Stocks.

Points leader Jim Walker suffered a flat tire when he tried to pass Word early in the race and had to settle for eighth in the feature. Word, who finished second in the points race last season, picked up nine points on Walker in the process while Tony Walker grabbed second in the feature.

Clarence Cole found victory lane for the first time in his career, taking the feature in the Bleachers Mini Stocks. Lindsey Bryant took honors in the CMI Super Trucks while Mitch Sheeler won the feature in the D&S Harley-Davidson Dwarf Cars.

Racing continues Saturday night at the Speedway. Gates open at 4 pm and the action gets underway at 6.
