Campbellsville's Tim Tungate was victorious in the 44 Auto Mart Super Late Model Feature at Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown on Saturday night while Roger Cecil of Bardstown won the Fifth Annual Shorter Gardner Memorial for the WBRT 1320-AM Sportsman, Jason Wheatley of Loretto was tops in Kentucky Cooperage Modifieds and Joe David Humphrey of Loretto was best in Street Stocks.
Tungate took the early lead in the Super Late Model feature with Scotty Earl, Johnny Wheeler, Aaron Hatton and David Webb in pursuit.
Dustin Neat claimed fifth on lap 2 as Tungate began to open his lead over Earl, Hatton pressured Wheeler for third, but could not make the pass.
Tungate continued to slowly build his lead by lap 10 with Wheeler closing on Earl for second while Hatton continued to pressure Wheeler for third.
The lone caution of the race flew on lap 14 when Matthew Rigdon spun in the center of turns three and four and second-place Earl coming to a halt and making contact with Rigdon. Earl was able to continue, but would be put back in his running position.
The restart saw Hatton dive beneath Wheeler and take third off of turn two. Hatton began to mount a charge on Earl for second with Neat pressuring Wheeler for fourth. Neat slid to fourth on lap 16 while Tungate again began to open his lead.
Lap 18 saw Hatton turn up the wick on Earl and that battle allowed Tungate to increase his lead even more.
