Thornton Conquers 300 Raceway

FARLEY, Iowa — Ricky Thornton Jr. scored a perfect night at 300 Raceway as he was the overall fast qualifier, won his heat and led all but the first 10 laps of the Simon’s Trucking “You Call-We Haul” 50 main event on Friday night. Tim McCreadie, the two-time and reigning series champion came home in second just in front of O’Neal at the stripe. Zeigler then ran second for several circuits until McCreadie, who started third was able to get by the Pennsylvania racer. Thornton, who started from the pole fell back to second in the early going to Zeigler but bounced back passing Zeigler in traffic to take over a lead he never relinquished. “I just didn’t get a good enough start and that allowed Mason to get out in front,” Thornton said. McCreadie, who is still looking for his first series win of the season finished 3.5 seconds behind Thornton.
