Dover Tops ASCS Warriors in LOS Nationals!

From Lonnie Wheatley

ELDON, Mo. (September 4, 2011) – The 21-year-old paced all 30 circuits atop the 1/3-mile Lake Ozark Speedway clay oval to pocket the $4,000 winner’s share aboard the Shaver-powered Thorpe’s Body Shop/Homepride Roofing No. 53 Eagle.

While Mike Goodman and Seth Bergman led the feature field to the green flag, Dover took command on the opening circuit from his third starting position and never looked back.

Weathering an early caution and another pair of reds along the way, Dover kept Dustin Morgan at bay in the early rounds and then held off Brian Brown over the latter stages to secure his 18th career overall ASCS victory.

Dover beat Brown to the stripe, with Morgan, Jason Johnson and Seth Bergman rounding out the top five. Jonathan Cornell was sixth, with Goodman, 21st-starter Robbie Standridge, Joey Moughan and 19th-starter Zach Chappell completing the top ten.

Morgan, Miranda Arnold, Brown and Gary Taylor won Saturday night’s heat races, with Mark Shirshekan and Wayne Johnson winning the “B” Main. Johnson flipped eleven laps into the feature event along with Rusty Potter, while Shirshekan climbed the wall 21 laps into the main event.
