Terry McCarl Stands Tall On Night 2 of the King of the 360’s with the ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints



TAMPA, Fla. -February 25, 2017- The second night of competition at East Bay Raceway Park’s King of the 360’s and Ronald Laney Memorial ended with the defending champion in Victory Lane as Iowa’s Terry McCarl mastered the low line to claim the win with the Lucas Oil ASCS Southern Outlaw Sprints.

Robbie Stillwaggon from the pole out dueled the No. 24 of Terry McCarl on the start. With the track locked to the bottom groove, the field was quick to find the tail with traffic coming into play on Lap 8.

Having fallen to third in the early laps, the race into traffic proved just what McCarl needed as Terry raced around the No. 53 of Shawn Donath on Lap 9. With Stillwaggon directly to his front wing, the No. 24 made quick work of Robbie to grab the lead on the tenth round.

With the track clearing as the field ran to Lap 15, McCarl held a half straightaway advantage over Shawn Donath who followed McCarl to second as he passed for the lead; but the field would again find Terry.

Into the closing laps, the top-five all ran nearly nose to tail with each waiting for the other to bobble. Presenting the chance for the field to pounce, McCarl found an infield tire with six laps to run. Putting a kink in his mojo for just a moment, Terry held pace as the laps counted down, and tires began to chatter.

Crossing under the checkered flag with a small amount of Hoosier to spare, Terry was chased to the line by Shawn Donath with Robbie Stillwaggon in tow. Derek Hagar crossed fourth with Wayne Johnson completing the top-five.

Tim Shaffer found himself in sixth with Chad Kemenah seventh. Harli White, Mark Smith, and Colman Gulick made up the top-ten.

With each night counting for event points, the Top 6 in combined points locked into Saturday’s $10,000 to win A-Feature and Terry McCarl, with 420 points, is the high point driver. The remaining five locked in drivers include Mark Smith (414), Shawn Donath (408), Chad Kemenah (407), Robbie Stillwaggon (407), and Travis Rilat (406). The drivers locked in will redraw for the starting position inside the first three rows.

The remainder of the field will enter with a new chance to advance to the A-Main.

The King of the 360’s and Ronald Laney Memorial concludes on Saturday, February 25, 2017 with Hot Laps at 6:00 P.M. (ET). For more information on East Bay Raceway Park, log onto
