On the third night of the Winter Extreme at Tucson International Raceway, the track was heavy, damp, very tacky, and very fast!
The feature race was Jimmy Mars to loose.
From the drop of the green flag Mars took the lead. As the laps added up Jimmy Mars, in his #28 late model, stretched out his lead over Shane Clanton and Terry Phillips. However, around lap 20 Mars got slowed by back maker, Nick Bartels. For more that five laps Mars was unable to pass Bartels.
During that same time period, Will Vaught caught fire, moved passed both Clanton and Phillips, enabling him to move into second place. Simultaneously, Vaught closed the gap on the leader, Mars.
With just two laps to go in the race, Vaught was able to get by Mars with a bold bonsai move in turn #4. All the while Bartels’ slower car was used as a pick by Vaught. It was Vaught’s first win at the Winter Extreme in 2013. As I said earlier, it was Jimmy Mars’ race to loose, and he did loose it!
In the modified feature it was Rodney Sanders scoring his third victory in the first three races! For the third straight night, Sanders ran off and hid from the rest of the field! It just seems like Sanders has the rest of the modifieds completely covered for the first three races!
