McCool juction, NE — (September 7, 2013) — Jack Dover brought the masses to their feet Saturday night with the Speedway Motors Midwest Region, charging to the outside of Don Droud, Jr. in the final turns at the Junction Motor Speedway in slower traffic to win for the second night running.

Charging from seventh, Dover grabbed the runner up spot following a Lap 16 restart. Closing on the back of the field with four laps to run, the Home Pride No. 53 closed a straight-a-way deficit as the white flag flew.

Bottled up by slower cars entering turns three and four for the final time, Droud was forced low as Jack Dover sailed the cushion to victory. Droud crossed second with early leader Wyatt Burks settling for third. Seth Brahmer came from tenth to fourth with Tyler Drueke from eleventh to complete the top five.

The Speedway Motors Midwest Region concludes the weekend at the Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb. on Sunday, September 8 starting at 6:30 P.M. Pits will be open to all from 3:30 P.M. until 4:30 P.M. Hot laps begin at 5:30 P.M.
