Royle started sixth row outside and worked his way up to second place when the caution flew with just 5 laps remaining. Walen was the leader and had lane choice, “I was doing the fist pump when he took the bottom,” said Royle “then I got out front, it’s been cool.” Royle has a 14 point lead over Donny Reuvers in the standings with Walen in third 26 points back.
Dusty Mann from Farmington (MN) started in the front row and won the Thunder Car main event in a race that went green for the entire 25 lap feature. “It’s funny how when you lead the entire race, it seems to take forever,” said Mann.
