Owens Gets Back On Track At I-80

— Jimmy Owens got back on track on Thursday night as he captured the caution-free Optima Batteries Dirt Track Bank Go 50 at I-80 Speedway. Richards took the lead at the start of the race and held the point for the first four laps of the race. Owens started fifth on the grid and charged to the lead on lap five surpassing Richards for the top spot, but Richards roared back to the lead around Owens on lap 11. Richards led until lap 27 when Owens caught back up to him to regain the lead for good. Owens then saw Thornton Jr. and Sheppard close the gap on him in the last five laps. “He [Owens] started to get into one and cut across. I was just a little too tight when I got to him,” Thornton explained.
