Following a two night swing though Montanan, Brad Loyet’s advantage now stands at 51 over Jason Johnson. Jeff Swindell closed the gap to 101 with his victory on Saturday at the BMP Speedway. Johnny Herrera rides fourth with Aaron Reutzel closing the gap in fifth, only 17 markers back from Herrera for fourth and only 49 back from Swindell for third.
