BOBBY WATKINS SHAKES DOWN NASH’S CAR WITH A WIN IN MOD LITES

Jake Nelso led the first lap of the 15-lap Mod Lite feature before Ray Gulliver powered on top. Bobby Watkins, making his first start in the division this season in the Nick Nash backup car was quickly up to second from ninth.

Just before halfway, Watkins moved on top. With Watkns in control Tim White began to climb through the top five and was up to third with five to go. Watkins would take the checkered with White getting second after Gulliver began to slow on the final lap. Nick Nash finished in the third spot with Gulliver fourth and James Hill fifth. Heats were won by Watkins and Nash.

Watkins said he had seen on Facebook in the morning where Nash was looking for someone to shake down his backup car that had been having overheating problems. Watkins took Nash up on the offer and handed the team a win. When asked how the car was now he replied, “She’s good!”
