**LMM's Racer Of The Night**
Hard choice as there were some well deserved racers, I will give it to Super Late Model driver Dillon Tidmore. Dillon won a hard fought destructive Feature #1 battling it out With Sam Seawright in a very wild event then grabbing a second place feature #2 behind Sam Seawright.
Even with blazing humid tempatures that tried hard to jsfa the life out of the track TST had a multi groove surface thru out the night for the state leading 108 cars on hand before a nice crowd.. There was a nasty flip by Randy Holder in the first SLM main, a few red flags during the night as well as some yellows. Some rough and tumble action in the 602 main as well. Adam Cummings continues to dominate 602 action. Corey Pressley smoked the Factory field but the action behind him was real good.
A very nice field of 28 Super Late Models entered, 27 made the starting grid as track champ Tim Roszell broke a connecting rod in hot laps to reduced the field to 27.
Due to the heat hot laps were delayed until 7:30. The track had a very cool and real thick cushion for the racers to lean on. With multiple red flags and a good bit of yellows the program wrapped up after time trials, 13 qualifying heat races, and 7 main events just before midnite.
