RPM Speedway (Crandall)
March 27 (Friday)
RPM Speedway held their reopening Friday night in Crandall, Texas. The track was closed for the 2014 season. A nice crowd was on hand to get the 2015 racing season underway. New promoter Kevin Hall and crew did a good job of getting RPM Speedway up and running with all the rain lately. The weather was cool, but the racers put on a good show for the fans with several close finishes. One of the most exciting races of the evening was the Factory Stock feature.
Factory Stock Winner: Tommy McKinley, No. 71m, managed to get by Chris Davis, No. 98, by a nose at the finish line for the exciting win. Shane Kersten, No. 34, was third, Kyle Kent, No. 47, was fourth and Wesley Staggs, No. 83, was fifth. Ten cars started the feature.
