EAMS Results - June 3, 2017

During hot laps last night the skies unloaded on EAMS resulting in an almost 3 hour delay while track officials waited out the ran and then got the track back in shape for racing.  Here is a recap of the racing events of the evening:

602 Late Model Sportsman - 25 Laps - $1,000 to Win:
#50 Steven Gaines started on the pole with a 17.26, but broke a rear-end in turn 3 of the 1st lap and finishing last.
1 - #21 Ricky Culpepper - started 4th and was up to 2nd by lap 8.  From that point he dogged #01 Blant Duke for the lead until powering by on the high side on lap 13.  After Duke saw the groove Culpepper was running he challenged him, but could never get back ahead.
2 - #01 Blant Duke - made a rare appearance at EAMS and appeared to be well on the way to victory until the high line came in for Culpepper mid way in the race.  Had Duke seen that the top was working for Ricky he could have moved up and the race would have been his.
3 - #05 Blaise Rutherford - started 15th, was immediately in the top 10, 5th by lap 10, and 3rd by lap 12 where he ran the remainder of the race.
4 - #17 Jason Price - started 10th and was in and out of trouble all race long, but survived for a top 5 finish.
5 - #1 Brandon McDaniel - started outside pole but slid off the topside of the track entering turn 3 on lap 3 and spent the remainder of the race recovering from that early miscue.
9th place finishing #8G Bubba Gorman expanded his points lead over #14 Dustin Ducker.
