Former SYRA 750 champion Branden Dion jumped past early leader Lenny Guy on lap four, and held on through a late race restart to pick up his first career Sport Truck win. Guy led the first three circuits before the 15 year old took over.
Branden set the pace early, and had a long green flag run, where he was able to hit his marks on the track, and get more comfortable in only his second truck race. While the rookie was able to stay comfortably out front, the action behind him was hot and heavy. Rob Murphy had settled into second for the first half of the event, holding back the charges John Paiva.
Paiva raced hard and moved into the runner up position at the halfway point. He tried to close in on the youngster, but without a late race caution, couldn’t make up the ground. Mike Cavallaro looked like he was going to be able to make a charge, but slid back a little while he battled with Rick Martin. Mike moved into third on a lap 19 restart but couldn’t make the run to the front.
With only a handful of laps remaining, the rookie had to earn his victory, as he and John Paiva lined up for the race to the checkered. With the drop of the green, Dion took off and held on for a half a truck length victory over Paiva and Cavallaro, who was working the outside over the final laps. Murphy and Martin rounded out the top five.
