entering the short turn sending both cars the to the pit area. Claborn’s car with a flat and suspension
damage and Marcum’s car had two right side flats. That left only Chris Bolyard and Jim Walker
in the race. As the green flag flew to

exited the short turn Marcum, after quick pit work, reappeared on the race
track but was more than a half a lap down to the leaders. Jim Walker got the lead on lap 20 and the
