Wright ends drought at Oklahoma City

By John Rittenoure

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK. (August 18, 2002)
-  Texan Gary Wright would probably like to forget much of the 2002 season. The nine-time defending O'Reilly/NCRA outlaw sprint champion has not won a main event since May 11, when he picked up a win at Tulsa Speedway, and has found himself locked in a points battle for second place.
  Sunday Wright brought his drought to an end with a victory in the All Stars vs. NCRA Thunder Through the Plains A feature at State Fair Speedway.  

Tommy Surrett claims 5th O'Reilly SUPR Late Model victory of the season!!

Baton Rouge, Louisiana (August 17, 2002) – The night didn’t start off well for Tommy Surrett but the end results proved to be just what the doctor ordered as Surrett became the first driver to claim 5 O’Reilly SUPR Late Model victories this season.  Surrett, his crew and several of his fellow competitors hustled to help him work out his motor woes and their efforts paid off. 


“The car was flawless.  We got here and hot lapped and the car was pushing, the motor wouldn’t run.  Curt Lipsey and Chris Wall helped me some.  We went out there for the heat race and 98 (Phil Cooper) pushed me up in to the cushion a little bit on the start and I drove it in pretty hard and when I knew the car would stick like that I told somebody that every time we’ve won a feature the car has been this good in the heat race.”

Tommy Surrett started on the outside front row in his JS Construction/Lando Patton/Daniels Family Keith Craft-powered Ford Mustang Rocket and powered past pole sitter Rodney Wing at the start and eased away early from the hotly contested battle for second between Wing and Ryan Plaisance. As the race wore on, Surrett was able to make quick work of the lapped traffic and pulled away to a big lead and the eventual win.  Surrett summed up his night by giving high praise to his car builder.  “Rocket Chassis is the best race car ever built, by far.”  And then he stated his intention on taking a few more victories this year before he’s done.

Furr Flies in Southern Bleacher Classic
By Richard Day
    FORT WORTH, TX (April 5) -– Brad Furr knew his engine problems were behind him when his crew installed a new Don Ott power plant in his #2 Sanmina/ISC Eagle Friday.  
The 25-year-old driver from Pleasanton, CA, made sure everybody was behind him that night as he led all 30 laps in the feature race to win the Third Annual Southern Bleacher Classic at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.
    Inclement weather forced Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series officials to cancel Saturday’s feature racing program, making Furr a main event winner for the first time in his career. The $10,000 victory pushed him into seventh place in the point standings. He also won the preliminary feature at Devil’s Bowl Speedway March 15th.
