BALLARD TAKES THE BRIDGEPORT MODIFIED FEATURE AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (October 10, 2011) ‚€“ At Georgetown Speedway's First
State Fall Brawl, Brett Ballard won the Bridgeport Modified feature.
Sean Campbell captured the TSRS main event. Mike Wharton was the
victor in the Crate Late Model race. The Delmarva Charger contest was
taken by Matt Long. Dwayne Heck claimed the Southern Delaware Vintage
Stock Car race.

After the top two runners tangled on the final lap in turn three,
Brett Ballard was able to win the Bridgeport Modified feature. Chad
James grabbed the lead at the start of the 25-lap affair. Coming from
the eighth starting spot, Jordan Watson was quickly on the move and
took over second place with three laps completed. With five tours in
the books, Watson was inching closer to James with Ryan Anderson in
third and Travis Hill riding in fourth. At the halfway point, the top
two of James and Watson were in lap traffic with Watson glued on the
bumper of the leader. After a caution period for Dan Cogdill on lap
15, James and Watson continued their battle while Brett Ballard was
motoring into third. With five circuits remaining, a side-by-side
tussle between the first and second place runners was developing. The
final yellow flag of the event waved with three laps remaining for
Ricky DiEva. On the ensuing resumption of racing, James maintained his
lead with Ballard briefly taking second place from Watson. Within
moments of losing the runner-up spot, Watson worked his way back to
second and set his eyes on James. On the last lap, James and Watson
went into the final turns next to one another. A tangle ensued on the
high side of the track and the charging Ballard stayed low to avoid
the incident. With the checkered flag waving, Ballard crossed the
finish line in first with Ron Roberts taking second. Anderson‚€™s
consistent run resulted in a third place finish. Matt Budd worked his
way to fourth while Watson regained control of his car to take fifth.
Bridgeport Modified heats were won by Jordan Watson and Travis Hill.

Sean Campbell led every step of the way to rack up his first career
win in the TSRS Sprint Car main event. Campbell started on the pole
and survived several challenges from Bob DeVault during the race.
Bobby Sandt, Jr. came on late and finished in second. DeVault held off
Bruce Kindberg to claim third. With Kindberg in fourth, Steve Wilson
wound up in fifth.
Bobby Sandt, Jr. and Bruce Kindberg scored wins in the TSRS Sprint Car
qualifying events.

After taking the lead on lap 5 from Robert Walls, Jr., Mike Wharton
won the 20-lap Crate Late Model feature in easy fashion. The runner-up
spot went to Derek Magee. Completing the top five were Mike Wilson,
Paul Allison and Billy Carr.

In the 15-lap Charger race, Matt Long took over the lead on lap 2 and
led the remainder of the race to grab the checkered flag. Long started
the event from the seventh starting position. Ashley Merritt‚€™s strong
run was rewarded with a second place finish. Kyle Tubbs came from
twenty-second to take third. Hunter Wharton and Warren Stradley filled
out the top five.

Dwayne Heck led every step of the way to claim the Southern Delaware
Vintage Stock Car race. Don Davidson, who wound up in fourth, was the
top finishing Sportsman.
