Rice Shocks Field During Ralph Latham Memorial

UNION, Ky. – Josh Rice scored the biggest win of his racing career on Saturday night at Florence Speedway, capturing the 35th annual Ralph Latham Memorial sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. On lap 57, Rice took the lead from Hudson O’Neal and pulled away for a spectacular win in front of his home track crowd. Rice’s margin of victory was 1.212 seconds ahead of O’Neal at the finish line. O’Neal picked up the top spot on lap 19 from Davenport, then Rice moved around Davenport on lap 28 for second. A caution with 32 laps complete set-up a battle between O’Neal and Rice. I thought I was never going to get by him [O’Neal]. I didn’t know if I was clearing him or not,” Rice said.
