Thornton Flies In Florence Late Model Tilt

UNION, Ky. — Ricky Thornton Jr. regained his early season form in winning Saturday night’s 37th annual Ralph Latham Memorial at the Florence Speedway. Thornton was the third different leader of the highly contested race as he came from the seventh starting spot to secure the $15,000 victory. On the restart it took O’Neal just three laps to get by Davenport to become the second different leader of the race. On the restart, Thornton had the momentum on the top shelf passing both O’Neal and Overton as he took the lead on lap 23. I was able to get by Hud [O’Neal] and Brandon [Overton]. “I let Ricky [Thornton Jr.] and Brandon [Overton] get by me there after that one caution and then Brandon made a mistake, and I got back by him. Overton was the only driver among the top three that did not lead a lap during the race.
