Day outdueled runnerup Kevin Doucette and reigning track champion Daniel Hovey to claim the checkered flag in the main event Saturday, July 23.

He also won the second heat race, with Reusch placing second and Doucette third.

Racers return to the track this weekend for their first doubleheader event of the season. Action begins Saturday at 7 p.m., and the drivers return Sunday for a 1 p.m. matinee points session.

After taking a week off, the club will hosts its feature event of the season, the 2011 Dust Bowl, on Aug. 20.
