Salley wins Pure Stock Battle
Jamie Salley jumped past polesitter Ed Gould out of turn two on the initial lap of the 30-lap Pure Stocks feature, to grab the lead. Gould flew into a stall and fell rapidly to seventh place over the next two laps before he could recover. Meanwhile, Ed Flanagan grappled onto Salley’s bumper with Bill Doyle all over his back and John Robidoux treating Doyle to the same. Jesse Melberg had come from seventh to fifth to pursue them, got by Robidoux for fourth, and went outside of Doyle for a shot at third. With two to go, Salley was leading a tight parade toward the finish. Salley roared home to the flying checkers, just .281 seconds ahead of the tenacious Doyle. Melberg was another .6 back followed by Robidoux and Heroux.
