Mears Hangs On Late At The Rock
Del Mears came home with the victory after some late race strategy and drama Sunday night at Rockingham Speedway. Del started 11th and found himself in the lead after a late race yellow fell when most of the leaders had already pitted. Del then survived 2 late race restarts to claim the victory after leading the last 24 laps.
Scott Eckrich won the pole and dominated the early going on the event, leading the first 99 laps. Scott pitted under green with 24 to go and was trapped the first truck a lap down when a late race yellow flew. Scott was then involved in a accident on the second to last restart of the night that relegated the fastest truck to a 19th place finish.
Jason Swann holds onto the points lead after 2 races over Jody Green. Del Mears gained 14 spots in his victory on Sunday that moves him into 3rd. Dan Murray and James Krahula round out the Top 5. Next week the series heads to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the Las Vegas 125.
