Dauderman triumphs at St. Francois County
FARMINGTON, Mo. (May 19) — Bobby Dauderman of Alhambra, Ill., earned $1,000 on Saturday at St. Francois County Raceway with a victory on the Pro Crate Racers of America tour. Dauderman outran Jeff Walston of Paducah, Ky., for his first series victory of the season. Mark Oller of Highland, Ill., was third followed by Aaron Heck of Mount Vernon, Ill., in the 10-car field.
Walston started on the pole and led the first four laps, but the third-starting Dauderman went past on the high side to take command on the fifth lap. With passing difficult the rest of the way, Dauderman cruised to the victory.
The race was slowed by three cautions, all for single-car incidents (Drew Marshall spun on lap 12, Jordan Suhre slowed on lap 17 and Scott Weber spun on lap 19).
